Did you know that if you stopped procrastinating, overcomplicating, planning, thinking, learning, consuming, quitting, and just started doing consistently, you’d figure it all out.
If you do, it’s only a matter of time before all the answers rise to the top and things become crystal clear.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know Miles…I didn’t know I subscribed to this newsletter to hear the obvious…”
The best advice is rarely new advice.
Let’s look at a fun example of this.
Take Liz Wilcox. She sent this in an email the other day and I’m borrowing it, thanks Liz 😉

My secret to online success…?
It’s simple really.
Literally. It’s SIMPLE. Well, simplicity. I owe every dollar I’ve ever made online to keeping things simple.
When everyone else was listening to hella podcasts, signing up for programs they weren’t going to complete, and stressing over the details…I just DID stuff.
I watched one webinar, took notes, and then TOOK ACTION on everything I learned. And in less than 1 year, I had my first digital product, a brand sponsorship, and a digital summit hosted by me and some other bloggin’ buddies.
Was it scary? Absolutely.
Did I make as much as the dude on the webinar? Of course not.
But just doing it gave me enormous confidence. Just doing it showed me that I could figure this whole “make money online” thing.
And after 7 years, I’m still following the same steps and still keeping things as simple as possible. (Alright, I may or may not be a part of an awesome mastermind and have heard my share of podcast episodes.)
Keeping it simple has also afforded me the luxury and opportunity to be off grid right now. (I’m offline completely until July, remember?)

You rock, Liz.
Ya see, it’s mostly about action. There really is no secret!
I don’t know about you, but I sometimes fall into the trap of thinking that everyone else is in on some tactic or strategy that I haven’t heard of or paid for yet.
But it all comes down to action. So if you’re not where you want to be, ask yourself, what action have I taken in the past 90 days?
You likely find less than what’s necessary to “win.”
Because you’re floating in the abyss with no real direction or container.
You’re doing things half-heartedly.
That’s what a “BOX” is for.
A box gives your projects and your goals tangibility.
It’s just that SIMPLE.
- What does finished look like (exactly)
- What’s the due date
- Where are you likely to get stuck / distracted?
- What’s your reward for finishing
Come take action with us twice a week for a month and see what happens.
I think you’ll be surprised.
Thanks for the inspo as always Liz (highly recommended EMM, Email Marketing Membership). And check out our episode with Liz.
See you next week.
