Read Your E-mails

I know this sounds obvious, but it needs to be said. I can’t tell you how many times people get themselves into trouble because they don’t read their e-mails. These are the same people who are subscribed to everything and anything they come across. That is INSANE!

Stop it!

I mean it, Stop it!

You’ve seen the video, if you haven’t click on the hyperlink…

I have elite clients called Platinum Members and I recently spent 4 hours explaining to them the principle of Voluntary Simplicity – simply put, it’s SIMPLIFYING your life so you live it ON PURPOSE so it’s fulfilling, energising and rewarding. The workshop was called how to do 3 times as much in 1/2 the time.

That means GET OFF all those distracting e-mail lists and subscriptions that don’t add value.


We’ve discussed it before – if YOU don’t value your time, no one else will.

Every MINUTE you WASTE or LOSE because of distraction takes you AWAY from your PRIMARY PURPOSE.

I know it sounds pedantic and IT IS – it’s also critically important.

If you are subscribed to 10, 20 or 30 e-mail, newsletter and other subscriptions that are NOT CONVERGENT on YOUR PRIMARY PURPOSE, you are diffusing your effort, focus and attention.

A master archer focuses on ONE BULLS EYE TARGET at a time.

You need to be doing the same.

Go on, unsubscribe from all the e-mail lists, newsletters, blogs and subscriptions that do NOT contribute to the attainment of your goals and purpose.

If they all contribute something, then cull from the least valuable at the bottom of the list to get MORE TIME BACK.


Not sure about this?

Here’s the million-dollar question:

If you have more than 10 to 20 e-mails in your e-mail inbox – you have too many = You’re overloaded.

How can you possibly have ‘CONCENTRATION OF FOCUS’ if you’re pushed and prodded in 10 different directions?

It doesn’t work.

Stop it!

  • I agree entirely, I had a period last year before going to my first boot-camp where I subscribed to all sorts of things in search of the “big one”. I have now un-subscribed from all of them as I realise that it was madness. I got myself so confused I was not even able to concentrate on the work I needed to do. It took Yvonne McIntosh to help untwist my mind to get me back on track. I am now working on the three things important to my goals – Flipping Web sites, My Personal Finances, and a Charity organisation I have been running for ten years which is starting out in a new direction in business training.

    Regards to all
