Six productivity hacks Elon Musk sent to his staff.

In a leaked memo, Elon Musk sent every employee in Tesla his six rules for productivity

A thread...
1. Leave a meeting if you are not contributing

Walk out of a meeting or hang up the phone the moment you realise you are not contributing.

If you are not adding value — get the hell out of there.

It is not rude to leave, it is rude to waste other people’s time.
2. Avoid large meetings.

The smaller the meeting, the more productive it will be.

Don't just go to a meet to nod or fill empty seats.

Anyone who doesn’t need to be there is wasting their time and will ultimately waste everyone else’s time

1984 isn't really like 1984

In 84, Apple released this advert during the Superbowl.

The ad takes place in a futuristic setting, with a group of expressionless bald men marching into a large hall.

The colour is dull with mostly greys and blues and a voice addressing the group.
Suddenly, a blonde brightly dressed athlete runs into the room chased by guards.

She swings a sledgehammer at the screen where the Big-Brother figure is addressing the room,

It explodes leaving the group of zombie-like men in shock.

A message on the screen then reads

I'm not rich, but I have a couple thousand in cash and assets.

Started making money online in 2018.

In Feb, I quit the cooperate world.

So, what are some habits that separate the rich from the poor?

A thread...
1. Discipline - Financially and emotionally.

Because you had a bad day at work doesn’t mean you need to spend £200 on clothes to cheer yourself up.

Rich people tend to save with more precision and meet their goals on a much more consistently.

Poor people have no discipline.
2. Goal setting - Rich people figure out what they want.

They make plan to get what they want and then they go to work to achieve it.

They break it down into long term and short term goals.

For some reason, poor people either don’t set goals at all or they set and forget it.

If you could spend $1 and get $2 back, how many $ would you spend? Everything you could get your hands on right?

That's one of the best things about Solo ads.

For every dollar you spend, you can predict how much you will get in return.

A short thread
Let's imagine this.

You spend $97 to buy 200 clicks.

You know the approximate amount of visitors to expect to click your link

You also know that each one of those visitors cost you $0.49.
Now, imagine (90) visitors subscribe to your email list.

Then every new subscriber has cost you $1.1

Imagine if just 4 people purchased your product and you get a commission of $25 per sale.

You'd have made $100 after spending $97.

Nuggets that will help you navigate life.

A thread.
1. Don’t worry about money; worry about the opportunity and money will follow.

Chasing money early in your career, is usually a bad choice.

You are much better served building up your skills and knowledge.

Taking this longer-term career view pays off.
2. Take your chances when you are young.

Take the risky path with great upside potential every chance you get.

I’m not saying you should take foolish risks. I am saying take smart, calculated risks.

You have the rest of your life to recover if things don’t go as planned.

The psychology of selling

How to sell ice to an Eskimo, sell oil to an Arab.

This is selling 101

A thread..
1. Drop the enthusiasm.

It’s time to get rid of the excitement when you’re in front of prospects.

Your prospects hate enthusiasm because it doesn’t seem real.

So stop the enthusiasm, and just be real and genuine instead.
2. Stop pitching.

Instead, think of it as a doctor-patient conversation.

Diagnose what’s wrong with the prospect and then, once you have a full understanding of their challenges and needs,

Present only the solution that will solve their problems.

How to be a sleazy sales person

A thread...
Turning one-time clients into repeat customers comes down to two things:

1. Providing quality service that offers solutions to client’s needs

2. Maintaining a relationship that keeps your name on their mind so that you are the first person they come to when they need help
Above are things you should do.

Now, below are things you shouldn't do.

1. Your pitch is not more valuable than the client’s time.
Just like you, clients have a lot to do and very little time to get it all done.

The world will put countless obstacles in your path but none will be as big as the ones you create for yourself.

Stop Self-Sabotaging Your Success.

A thread...
Simply put, self-sabotage is when your logical, conscious mind (the side of you that says you need to eat healthily and save money) is at odds with your subconscious mind (the side of you that stress-eats chocolates and goes on shopping sprees)
1. Understand self-sabotage.

Self-sabotage is when we do something that gets in the way of our intent, or of our bigger dreams and goals.

We want something, but somehow we never accomplish it.

Why? Because somewhere deep in our subconscious we’re fighting against that goal.
