Just the other day I received a message on Twitter telling me that automated direct messages are a poor way of pushing your content (I use automated direct messages).
And this person was totally right.
It might not be the most intelligent, sophisticated, Harvard graduate kind of way that will be celebrated and glorified by our society and it will definitely not make me win a Nobel prize.
But let me tell you what it is: It’s something that works really, really, really well for me.
That content has now over 300+ retweets (I will try to re-engineer what I did in a later post). Click here if you want to see the proof.
Even though it might not make me look super smart I’ll continue doing it. I don’t really care.
Everything I really care about is to get where I want to be in life. And if the non-smart way beats the smart way, I’ll just use the non-smart way.
Sticking with the smart way just to make you look smart even though it doesn’t really work is actually the really poor way.
And there are so many things in life where people try to convince you that it makes more sense to stick to the supposedly smart way. Here are some I could think of:
So if you found a not so super sophisticated way of reaching your goals why not stick to it? Why listen to others?
Why do something that might make you look smart but doesn’t get you where you really want to be in life? Just to please others? Hell no!
If you meet someone that tells you something like “that’s a poor way of doing xyz” just walk away and screw them!
They might just be jealous that they weren't able to successfully pull off the "poor way" and are still stuck trying to make the smart way work out.
Funny enough, in the end they will also try out the “poor” way because they saw it worked.
And then they realize that the poor way isn’t actually as “poor” and “easy” as they thought.
I was one of them. I laughed at the supposedly poor way and when I tried to copy it and pulled it off it never really worked.
So if you can make money in a not so smart way and can enjoy your life at the same time why not do it?
If you have an export business and you make a lot more money with a lot less work than your buddies at that consultant gig why even care about whether or not you look smart?
If that small corner shop where you sell flowers is what makes you really happy then just enjoy it and screw everybody else that doesn’t want you to be happy...
