James says it's not focus that matters the most. It's "decluttering" that really makes the biggest difference.

Get rid of negative people, stop arguing with people, don't go to meetings or conferences that are marginal, and follow Warren Buffett's 5/25 rule.

Listen and learn how to declutter your life

Regards,

 

David

Today's question is a delicate one. A listener texted in to ask what James thinks about abortion.

James says that there are a few topics that no matter which side you're on, everyone hates you.

This is one of those questions, but it's a very important discussion.

I think it's important to tune in today. Please listen to this entire episode.

 

Listen here and join in the conversation.

Claudia showed James "the perfect resume" yesterday. After taking a look at it, James had to agree.

This should be the standard resume anyone should use going forward.

The resume was from a woman named Nina, who wanted to work at Airbnb. So, she customized her resume to look exactly like an Airbnb webpage.

She left out all the old standard resume components; instead, she just put in a link to LinkedIn, where it's all housed anyway.

Instead, she focused on how she can help Airbnb. She studied the company, offered solutions on where to start, and told a story.

If you really, honestly want that job, then learn from Nina and stand out.

Listen and learn how you can get that new job.

Regards,

James is so excited that he can hardly handle it...

James has used "The Force" to help him solve a major business problem he experienced in one of his earlier companies.

He decided not to be angry, and he wasn't going to be scared. He calmed down and trusted that whatever happens, happens.

He wasn't going to waste time worrying.

Be calm, be honest, and do your best.

David

If you're in a service business, you need to give your friendship away for free at first.

But be careful, and make sure the friendship is reciprocal.

Take each individual client on a case-by-case basis.

Every client is different.

Claudia threw out all of her dinner plates since she wants to live longer, but that's not today's question.

Today, James wanted to talk about creativity and the power of a partnership.

1 + 1 = Teamwork

Teamwork can help you become a creative genius. No idea lives in isolation, no partnership lives in isolation, and no team lives in isolation.

David

Your boss has a good reason to hate you.

Too many employees don't want to be proactive. They want more money and bigger titles, but they don't want to tie their own success to the success of the company they work for.

Figure out a way to tie your success to your company's. Try to solve your company's problems.

Become an asset and your boss won't hate you.

Yes, money was a factor, but not the most important factor.

Listen to what was the most important thing.
