#136 Don’t Spread Yourself Too Thin

We all know what that means, right?  You have too much going on.  You don’t have enough bandwidth to do multiple things properly.  For me, I’ve been on both sides of the equation.  The question is, “Where’s the sweet spot? 

Where’s the spot where you’re going to be challenged and have the right amount of pressure?  Putting myself intentionally on the hook for a certain amount of time, or for a sales goal, helps me get more out of myself.  If you’re not challenged, then there’s not a lot of reasons to push.

So, what’s the right amount of pressure?  Well, it’s different for everyone.


It All Works Together

I must have a few things going on that challenge me, but all work together.  For me, I run multiple businesses that feed into each other.  They’re integrated.  It’s still difficult, but it’s not as difficult as running multiple different businesses at the same time.  My businesses are in the same vein.  They work off each other synergistically.  Everything affects everything.  I consistently push myself to get more out of myself, but never to the detriment of spreading myself too thin.


Staying the Course

I’m always hesitant to take on initiatives outside the lane of how I operate.  My passion, hobby and job all lie within the gym.  And I’m so thankful for that.  Over the last few years, I started dabbling into other areas such as real estate, especially with a commercial space for both Max Effort and Old School Gym.


Keep Pushing Forward

It’s good to add things to your plate and challenge yourself.  My only advice is to make sure that it’s cohesive with how you operate.  This is important because if you have your hand in 10 different pots, it’s going to be nearly impossible to keep up.  It’s going to be very hard to give all 10 pots the attention they require.

How can you get more out what you have going on currently?  What can you add to your plate that is within the same vertical of what you have going on?  Once you figure this out, execute.
