Have you ever said, “I’d love to do that, but I just don’t have the time.” If that’s you, then you need The 1% Rule.
It isn’t about the 1% elite. It isn’t about being a social exception. It’s actually a strategy for managing your time.
I recently discussed The 1% Rule on social media. People responded well to it.
I decided to record a podcast expanding on the idea. The podcast is further down this post.
Why I Needed The 1% Rule
The 1% Rule is a very simple way of looking at your day. It’s enabled me to “beat the odds”.
Usually, the odds aren’t “stacked against you”. Usually. I don’t complain, but some odds were against me.
As I discussed in this post, my health has been an issue for several reasons. Boo hoo. It has never been an excuse because I never made it an excuse.
Here are a few of the things I’ve been able to do by using the 1% rule:
- Build muscle with very low testosterone.
- Lose a significant amount of weight while having low testosterone.
- Choose the right woman without making women my mission.
- Build the life I wanted to live and live free.
- Learn to stop making my writing unreadable.
- Seize my opportunity to make money.
The podcast is below. There are notes below the podcast.
Notes on The 1% Rule
- I am not the originator of the concept. When possible, I give credit where it’s due.
- I did expand the 1% Rule, though.
- 1% of your day is 14 minutes and 24 seconds.
- If you get 7 hours of real sleep a night, you sleep 29% of your day.
- That leaves 71% of your day to make moves.
- That means you have 71 different periods of time, each 14 minutes and 24 seconds to make moves every day.
- If you are doing more than 71 things every day, you’re probably wasting time.
- I used the 1% Rule to avoid burning out.
- The 1% Rule forces you to accept responsibility. That’s why it works.
- The 1% Rule has wide applications. I discuss creating content with the 1% Rule.
- You can use the 1% Rule to the benefit of yourself and your audience. When you win, everyone wins.
