Looking to become amazing at something but do not have a lot of time? You are in the right place. How to become an expert at anything in record time!
Today, we are going to be talking about how to become an expert. As you may have guessed, we are going to be talking about how to do it in record time.
Now, this is something that has DIRECTLY impacted my life and I really started understanding this in engineering school when I did not want to go to class and I did not want to do my homework while not wanting to fail out of school.
So, I started learning how to rapidly consume information in a SHORT period of time.
This transferred over into how I function inside of business and how I function in life in general. It’s how I have always learned new skills.
How to Become an Expert – Make your Own Boot Camp!
It’s a paradigm and a mindset that allows me to take in a LOT of information very rapidly and apply it very effectively into my life. I want to pass it along to you.
The first thing I want to share though is the realization that the world you are living in today is essentially standing on the shoulders of all the people who have come before us.
All the work that the people who have come before us, the MILLIONS of people who have died striving to further humanity, we are now standing on the shoulders of all those people. We are now enjoying the gifts and fruits of ALL their labor.
In 2010, there was more information created than every year of human existence before that. I forgot the exact statistic, but I think it now happens every three months or something ridiculous like that.
So, we are on this EXPONENTIAL curve of technology. We are now getting to enjoy the fruits of all these people’s past labor.
Now, how does this apply to becoming an expert? Let me share through example.
About six months ago, I recognized the fact that, as an internet marketer, I was really good at generating traffic, getting people to my websites, but really bad at generating sales, conversions and getting the traffic to taking the action that I wanted them to take.
My conversions were lacking.
As soon as I recognized this, I did what I do with any skill that I see needs attention. I put myself through a boot camp.
If you have seen my Conversion Jiu Jitsu product, then you know that in order to create that product on conversions, what I did was I took fifteen different guru conversion products and I spent two weeks doing nothing but going through and consuming all of that information.
In two weeks, I got to put fifteen different peoples’ best efforts at teaching a subject into my database, into my toolkit. Their efforts came from the efforts of all the marketers, other entrepreneurs and other people before them who taught them what they knew and made them write the products and create the trainings that they created.
I got to take that and assemble that into my toolkit in two weeks.
At the end of those two weeks, I was now an expert in online conversions. I was able to create my own training program by assimilating all theirs down into what I consider to be a more complete and a more expansive training on the topic.
In TWO WEEKS, I went from feeling not proficient to being expert enough in something to create Products and charge for it to other people.
It is commonly said that it takes ten thousand hours to become an expert in anything…
I still feel that it’s valid that you need to fill in time to see where your sticking points are, where there are things you do not have awareness to yet. There is nothing that can be said for time. In Jiu Jitsu, we call it “time on the mat”. There is nothing that is more POWERFUL than putting in the work.
But now, we can come to the mat better equipped than ever before. This can work in ANY area of your life.
If you want to improve your health, go out and grab the top five most rave-reviewed health products in the area of health you are looking in to improve and read them all.
If you are looking to have Better Relationships, go out and get the top five gurus on that area of relationship and read them all.
If you are looking to improve your business, your salesmanship or anything else, there is this MASSIVE resource out there of experts who are standing on the shoulders of all experts who came before us and who have access to such COMPLETE information – mind-shifting, awareness-shifting, paradigm-shifting information.
You could consume it rapidly because it has been distilled down now so many times into what is MOST effective, what gets results, what really works.
We are living in this AMAZING time. The real way to become an expert at anything in record time is to commit to a boot camp. If you want to become an expert at something, go get all the other experts’ materials: video courses, seminar recordings books and/or audios, and consume it.
The last thing that you need to know is that this is going to come down to structuring your day because I could not say:
“OK, I am going to get fifteen different guru conversion products and they are going to sit on the shelf because I do not have time for that.”
I had to wipe my schedule clean for two weeks and say:
“This is what I am doing for the next two weeks.”
A lot of people might not have that luxury. You might work for a daytime job. You might have a lot on your plate right inside your business.
All I want to do right here is to bring awareness to you that you need to consciously structure your day in order to consume the materials. So, that might mean that you do have the luxury and say:
“OK, these next two weeks are all about this.”
It might mean that you commit an hour a day or EVERY free minute. Every time I am driving, I’ve got an audio of this topic playing. Every time I am running or exercising, I am listening to it. Every time I have free fifteen minutes, I am reading. I am not on Facebook. Until I get through ALL these materials, this is what is important to me.
Or, if you are super busy, pay someone eight to ten dollars an hour to go through all the information for you and give you reports on it. Spend an hour a day consuming the reports that person put together for you for reading all the information.
There are a LOT of different ways that you could structure your day to get this material into you.
I simply want to bring you an awareness that you have to make a conscious choice to do so or this boot camp is never going to happen. You are never going to become an expert or proficient at any of the things that you are trying to take on.
