Why Automation Ruins Everything
Read this if you think that automation will save your valuable time In this episode, Martin shares why using automation might be the biggest obstacle to business success.  The FindFocus Show – Pareto Summary  In 2009, two airplanes – an upstate New York Continental Connection flight and an Air France flight from Brazil to Paris – were the victims of the effects the autopilot.  Unexpected changes in the airplanes’ autopilot systems caused them to react in an extremely poor way, which turned out to be the cause of the accident in both cases. That’s why on January 4th, 2013 the Federal Aviation Administration released a safety alert for operators saying that pilots’s ability to quickly recover the aircraft from an undesired state. Pilots should spend less time flying around and more time flying by hand.  Automating too soon is one of worst things you can do when starting an online business. One of the main problems Martin sees is neglecting crucial skills when building an online business.  When you are starting out you should trade time for money. This will help you to identify the skills that are valuable in the market place.  Martin currently builds the skill of podcasting and creating videos.  Scaling matters. A podcast or video is a great way to distribute your content and offer value.  You can provide most value in person.  You have to offer your services to the right person.  Hunter Otis build his 6-figure business by helping people to overcome porn addiction.  Always focus on building personal relationships.  You can only help people who want your help.  Don’t cast pearls before swines. Example: Martin’s content was well received in different Facebook groups but was criticised heavily on reddit.  Don’t try to convince people. You will fail.  Martin cannot even convince his wife about the value of FindFocus but the software changes some people life’s daily.  Thank you for listening, watching & reading this.

How to Measure Progress When You Fail
Listen to this episode if you feel you are not making progress when building new habits. In this episode, Martin shares why failure can be a sign of progress.  The FindFocus Show – Pareto Summary  Martin did not publish a new podcast yesterday, yet he did not like failing and called the day a success?  Why?  There is always a range of behavior. Look at professional sports. Even the best players make a ton of mistakes.  When you try to learn new habits, compare when you are acting like your best self with your best self.  When you are failing, compare this with past failures.  The best way to improve is to get rid of your “C-Game.” For example, when you tend to watch YouTube videos for entertainment slowly substitute for education-based videos. The next step might be only watching Youtube videos if you want to solve a specific problem. ... Your best and your worst behavior is a moving target.  Thank you for listening, watching & reading this.

This Is More Important Than Being Effective
Read this if you want to not why it’s not important to be effective. In this episode, Martin shares the single thing that is more important than the best life hacks, habits, procedures, etc.  The FindFocus Show – Pareto Summary  In the past, Martin thought it’s important to reach his goals most effectively. He discovered that goals are important, but character goals are more important.  Doing things right does only matter if this is aligned with the type of person you want to become.  That means sometimes it’s important to do things just for the sake of doing them. Example: Showing up for a workout if you are ill or tired.  An ineffective workout will not build muscle but willpower muscle.  This is much more important in the long run.  You are building the identity of a person that is fit and strong.   Martin started this process a few days ago and is already seeing progress in other areas of his life.  Think about: Where in your life do you need to show up more consistently to build the right character?

CHANGE Or DIE
More than 90% of people are unable to change their habits. In Martin's first solo episode he covers the 3 key concepts you need to master to beat the odds and gain freedom from the bad habits that are sabotaging your success. Pareto Summary: Nature only develops us up to a point but beyond that evolution is impossible without effort.  Most people don't want or don't know how to change.  The biggest obstacle to change is denial.  The 3 keys to change: 1. RELATE to rolemodels, mentors, joining masterminds and getting a coach.  2. REPEAT new behaviors and design your environment to make this easy.  3. REFRAME: You'll learn new ways of thinking that did not make sense to you before.  You need people to inspire you. There is a way to change but you cannot see it right now. Other people can guide you but there is no One size fits all.  To stop lying to yourself pay attention. This takes special effort and study.  Pay attention to these questions every day: 1. How long was attention present? 2. How often did you feel you were paying attention? 3. What were you aware of?
