The Story Behind My Crowdsourced, …
I’ve been trying to figure out what my next big project was for awhile…
Honestly it’s been a source of stress up until some recent clarity.
My “aha moment” came to me on the heels of my first trip to SXSW a few weeks ago. I was drinking some complimentary boxed vino with my roomie Ben on the flight back to Rio rapping on questions like:
What activities currently excite me?
What would be the most fun and impactful thing that I could create with what I already have?
Would I be consistently excited about working on this for the next year?
I’ve been geeking out about self-improvement and figuring out how to create the most abundant life experience for myself and the people I care about …
Two years ago I started my outsourcing journey.
Since then I’ve tried a ton of different companies and works to offload as many tasks that I shouldn’t be doing as possible.
Today I want to share the most effective business outsourcing setup I’ve come across. It’s what I use today and has massively increased my output….
Here’s the deal.
If you’ve heard of outsourcing, you know there is probably specialists who could be executing tasks you’re currently doing. Odds are they can probably do a better job for less than your hourly rate as well.
So why the heck doesn’t everyone outsource everything other people could do to affordable specialists?
The main reason is that there is a ton of friction in the hiring process.

“You’re going on in 5…and relax. You’re only going to be in front of a few million people.”
I wasn’t quite sporting the same grin as the Channel 7 camera guy.
I was about to do a live interview on their Sunrise breakfast program. It was Australia’s most popular morning show. Similar to Good Morning America, but for the land down under I suppose.
Two hours before that I was at an ABC studio filming for FusionTV on the heels of a call with Radio New Zealand.
How the heck did this happen from a single blog post?
Below is the story of how I accidentally got international, mainstream media coverage…without having a big name or massive audience.
I’ll codify the series of events …
I strongly believe the main reason that 2013 was the most productive, fun, and interesting year of my life was due to the goal setting exercise I performed below…
A few days ago, I published the framework I used to create holistically ambitious goals last year.
Below is a transparent view of my thought process to craft my goals for 2014 culminating in a list that displays all of them.
The Goal Setting Process
The first step was to revaluate and confirm the areas of my life that are most important to me. In no particular order they are:
Family / Personal / Social Well-Being
Professional Development / Business Growth
Fun / Leisure / Recreation
After establishing these steps I completed the following statements:
I want …
This post will teach you how to create goals for this upcoming year that won’t leave you empty when you achieve them.
This actually happens a lot because “goal lists” are rarely accountable to all areas of our lives that are important to us.
If you have a bunch of goals that are solely focused on one area of your life (cough work), you’ll probably end up feeling unhappy even if you crush them.

Below is a methodology you can use to set goals for 2014 that are holistically ambitious. It relies heavily on a 400 year old Buddhist tool called the Bhavacakra or “Wheel of Life.”
