There's an interesting saying that I'd like to share with you today. The saying goes, "Are you a jack of all trades but a master of none?" When I heard this it made me ask myself, am I spending all of my time on a million different tasks, never fully mastering any of them? Or am I focusing my efforts on the main thing that will get the results that I desire?
After thinking about it I realized that I was trying to go in too many different directions. I was allowing myself to be distracted by all of the little things that take up my time like doing yard work, cleaning the house, watching tv, washing the car etc.. It's not saying that all of these things aren't important, some of them are even necessary, but I had to learn how to prioritize. Now, if your main thing is restoring cars and entering them into auto shows, then washing and waxing your car by hand fits in with your main thing. Since my main thing is internet marketing, I'll just roll my car through the car wash. For me it was just one more distraction.
But, I've got some good news for you! There are only 24 hours in the day for us to get something accomplished. The same goes for the person who makes $20,000 per year as it is for the person who makes millions per year. It's only what they do with that time that's different. The person who makes millions per year has learned how to focus their efforts during those 24 hours to achieve their desired results.
Some examples of people who have learned how to master their "main thing" instead of being a jack of all trades, master of none, are; Michael Phelps, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Walt Disney and Sam Walton (the founder of Wal-Mart), to name a few. I'm sure that if you go down the list of all the successful people you know, you will find that they are all masters at one thing too.
Now there comes the time when you need to ask yourself what you want to be a master at but remember this…
A jack of all trades is a master of none.
I'm looking forward to talking with you again soon.
