Hey Everyone,

Hope you all had a wonderful week and welcome back to The Pursuit.

Each week, I share the most impactful ideas that help me in my pursuit of better. In business, relationships, health, networking, wealth, happiness, and more.

One idea is something I personally learned that week, and the rest are from others who inspire me.

Today, I go into a wide range of topics. From the paradox of sales and marketing to the importance of small, daily actions.

Alright, onto this week’s ideas.


Why Small Daily Actions Are So Important

“Writing 750 words a day becomes 22,500 words a month.

Exercising for 30 minutes a day becomes 15 hours a month.

Reading 50 pages a day becomes 1500 pages a month.

These are the small actions that compound.

Celebrate each small win because it is always a step forward.”

The Paradox of Sales & Marketing

“Paradoxical truths:

• The best marketing never looks like marketing.

• The best salesperson never looks like a salesperson.

Tough to understand. Even tougher to apply.

This is what the world’s best salesman looks like. He looks like an anti salesman. Feature not a bug.

Don’t think he’s ever said:

“Always be closing” or read Zig Ziglar.

This is ironically a reason (one of many) why he’s so good at sales + marketing.

I’ve struggled to understand this idea for a while.

I think it’s down to signaling theory.

The best sales + marketing signals trust.

But if the consumer knows it’s sales + marketing – it signals anti-trust.

So the paradox occurs.”

Idea From Me: The Commonalities Between Writing & Fitness

Writing is to the mind what fitness is to the body:

Demanding and challenging at first.

But as you improve the habit, the more rewarding and life-changing it becomes.

When is the last time you blocked off time to exercise your mind?

Until next time, have a great weekend.
