If you want to look forward to a successful new year, you have to take a look back to see where you are now especially when you are in the middle of a long-term plan.

In 2015, we discovered that organization is not enough to succeed. You’ll hear in this episode how Brandon and Jerry learned the hard way that organization is not enough to succeed in the pursuit of their dream. The behind-the-scenes work is crucial. That work included the following:

  • Accountability
  • Hustle
  • Grinding it out when you find yourself in a routine
  • Picking your head up to see where you are and where you’re going
  • Make an adjustment when you hit a plateau or your dream dies

We put together a business plan, why is it that organization is not enough for our success?

When did you feel yourself hit the plateau and get discouraged?

How did we come to the decision to not throw in the towel after not seeing immediate results?

How long should we dwell on our mistakes?

Why the heck is Brandon talking about a Spartan Race?

What if you lived today as if it were your last one? What would you be doing?
