The notes on my iPhone is an unusual collection of headlines, random thoughts and musings I’ve picked up listening to podcasts in the car.
“Read this or die” – was a famous headline written by Jim Rutz.
Jim Rutz was a copywriter who sadly passed away a couple of years ago.
A few years back I was looking to learn more about email marketing.
I scoured the Warrior Forum, listen to the ‘ex-spurts’ and thought I knew a thing or too…
Then one day the penny dropped.
If you’re going to learn about writing good emails, why not check out the guys who are paid to write emails – obvious, eh – it wasn’t at the time and so I started to follow copywriters instead of sleezy internet marketers like me (I’m serious, bro).
So a typical day right now includes:
- Learning more about copywriting, and…
- Adding notes on a daily basis to my iPhone.
One of the most moving ‘notes’ isn’t actually from a copywriter, it’s from Albert Einstein who – hours before his death – had doctors proposing NEW, unproven surgery to extend his life.
His words “I’ve have done my share, it is time to go. I will do it elegantly”
Now I’m a morbid fucker.
And I think about death a lot.
And one of the things that bugs me, bugs me to death (yup, it actually might) is not doing everything – I mean EVERYTHING – to live a life of ‘significance’.
‘Significance’ because what’s significant and important to me is different to what’s significant to you.
But I bet my last piece of Victoria Sandwich, they’re not a million miles apart…
And involve more time and more £$£
Am I right, or am I right?
Anyway, going to wrap up this quick…
If you’re looking to live a life of significance, want to meet your maker with a smile on your face, ready for the long sleep after a lifetime of doing EVERYTHING you wanted to do, leaving the world a better place … and leaving a legacy for your familia …
Then you really, really need to master a skill.
Master a skill, then get it out there, in the real world bringing home some bacon.
A skill that pays big bucks, builds businesses and can leverage your time to the max.
What kinda skill?
How ‘bout traffic, sales funnels, copyriting for a start.
Every business needs them – including the one you’re starting online – because they increase sales.
It’s 23:43 – it’s time for me to work on some shit,
Learn a skill and build a business you love!

P.S. You know what, I was going to ‘apologise’ for the morbid feel but guess what … you are going to die one day and you only get one roll of the dice, man-up, deal with it and quit fucking around.
