Management By Walking Around And Asking Questions To Know All The Lies

Of all the videos I’ve done, this is the one I want every single reader, subscriber, member, or wanderer to watch. No exceptions.

In fact, I want you to watch it a few times. Because, I want you to integrate the message and make a lot more money over the course of your life—once you understand the underlying power.

In the video, I’m going to run you through what it takes if you’re balls-ass as a person and take on any job anywhere, and excel.

The only reason few people on earth can do it is because they were trained and indoctrinated to be submissive, compliant, and a cog in the machine.

They dutifully submit an application, hoping their experience and skills are competitive for what the employers are looking for, for their empty box to put someone in. Boxed in.

It’s a far cry from a man decades ago just wandering around, introducing himself, availing himself of any and all opportunities to trade his labor and time for for dollars in any capacity for which he could muster the basic abilities.

This is about generalism over specialization.

I have long though that specialization is the wrong road.

Too much to say or write about how wrong that is, both personally and societally.

Perhaps this: competent generalists always herd all the petty specialists, like the classic doctors and lawyers.

Now watch.

    I like what you’re saying here. It gets me fired up about trying something new again.

    I’ve had all kinds of jobs in my adult life, many of which were “throw me into the pool” situations. The best one was working in a mental hospital for teenagers with no relevant education or experience. (Actually, that job was more like a fire than a pool.)

    For the last couple years I’ve been solo-preneuring as an artist, but also painting houses for extra cash. None of this is challenging anymore, at least not in the sense of having to learn new skills and industries. Also, I’ve always liked to work directly with people in fast-paced/high-pressure environments. I miss that and I’m getting a little bored myself.

    I have a lot of pride (ego) wrapped up in doing my own thing and being self employed. There are a lot of naysayers that I want to prove wrong, especially when it comes to my pursuit of being a professional artist.

    But this video offers a new perspective on the idea of getting a “job” (and keeping art as a side hustle) as long as it’s something that will keep me mentally engaged and challenged.

    Glad to hear that things are in the works for you.
