I have often talked of the power of working hard for 6 months. What you can accomplish in 6 months can provide rapid growth for your career as a ronin rebel or as a businessman.
It was back in '12 that I did the first nose-to-grind 6 month period of work, and that 6 months of solid work was worth 5 years of good business to me.
I just got to the end of another 6 month period of total, solid and complete work. I expect this 6 month period to propel me forward another 5 years.
In NWR you will hear constant talk of ‘level changes'. A level change is a type of work that makes you more money, or otherwise “brings you to another level.”
The power of a 6 month work session is undeniable and it is something that has been essential to my work. My first 6 month session was worth a million dollars to me, in my mind and in my bank account.
The power of this current 6 month work session is unknown millions. I am not saying this to brag, as I have stopped caring about money as a way to buy things a long time ago.
I say this to stress the importance of working hard and creating the work that pays the bills. In New World Ronin you will read about 2 types of work:
- Black & White Work
- Full Color Work
Black & White Work is the work we do every day that continues and maintains business. It is the work that can be done with a set of clear instructions. B&W work is the momentum of a business.
Full Color Work is the work that creates the business in the first place. Full Color Work does not come with instructions. It is the type of work that can only come from one person or an enlightened team. Full Color Work is the 1st spark that starts the momentum.
To continue and maintain business it is obviously essential to do both types of work. But to “jump a level” it is necessary to go deep into the Full Color Work and go all out.
My personal philosophy is do Full Color Work until you can't go no mo'. Then you switch gears to normal, every-day work – the Black & White work of routine maintenance etc.
I understand many think the content of B&D has suffered the past 6 months. I understand that many think I disappeared. That's because the content did suffer and I did disappear.
Here's what happened: I created enough work to last another 5 years. Specifically I wrote three complete books, untold articles, several book drafts, several thousand pages of notes, uncovered 2 secrets of life (breathe air better and move your body), re-found a true life purpose and I created a completely new world in NWR.
A guiding principle of NWR is the Way of Always Moving Forward. Or as Louie Simmons says, ‘if you don't constantly change, you don't get no better'.
Regarding what New World Ronin actually is; complete craziness. It is the notebook of the mad professor. Mad professor's can predict the future and I have 2 predictions.
Here is my 1st prediction: NWR is going to be misunderstood at first because it simply is nothing like anything that has been released.
Here is my 2nd prediction: New World Ronin is going to create more work for up and coming ronin that all of my work on B&D combined.
You can take a look at amazon any time and see a dozen different copycats of 30 Days of Discipline. You can read through the blog world to find many copycats of B&D. I often get emails from people pointing out new copycats, but I never cared.
I never understood why people hated copycats so much. I always saw my work as a way of giving someone purpose. To be copied is to give someone purpose.
Inspiring people is the best feeling in the world and I have always been a soldier of that mission. B&D has been copied countless times, but I did something very different with NWR. It really is the notebook of the mad professor.
On any individual page of New World Ronin are ideas that are going to spark the fire of creativity for the people who are stuck in a rut – the ronin, rebels, cast-aways and everyday Joe and Jane.
Earlier, I said a created a new life purpose and I did. My mission is to take someone who does not have a reason to wake up in the morning and give them a reason to wake up and be excited for the day.
The spark of entrepreneurship has to start somewhere and if you are just staring out in the game, it is not being a copycat – it is called being inspired. Inside the book are many, many sparks that will create that fire.
I always say, if I get one idea from a book then it was worth it. I put one idea on every page of New World Ronin.
