Warren Buffet says, "Say No 90% of the time".
His experience, along with other billionaires, is to focus on the main goal at hand. This means eliminating distractions.
Your daughter calls to babysit the kids. Next, your sister calls about her kid's birthday party. A friend calls you to join her at a party.
Your brother needs help with his taxes. Your wife wants to go for a ride today, since the weather is nice.
The list never ends.
If you set out a 12 week plan to work 60 hours per week, then you need to say NO to ALL distractions. No babysitting, rides, parties, birthdays, etc, etc.
If you put in the time, you increase your chance of success 100 fold.
Now, you have a 1 in 910 chance of becoming a billionaire, instead of 1 in 91,000.
Much better odds, would you agree? Why would you not strive for that? Assuming you develop a minimum viable product or service that the masses crave for, plus you put in the time to market it correctly, and
you get great feedback, with people willing to pay for it and tell others, you made it.
Now focus on sales, customer service, hiring talent to help run the show, partner with other billionaires to joint venture and you have the willing formula.
If you allow the distractions metioned above, you fall back to 1 in 91,000 and someone lese will eat your lunch, breakfast, and dinner.
