Ever had these thoughts?
You’ve read the productivity gurus and best selling authors and you agree that the best way to beat resistance is … to get started. Maybe that even works for you, some of the time, but you still aren’t completing frequently enough to make a difference.
Understanding alone will not cause you to act and complete. You don’t need more “secret” productivity tips. You don’t need more information. It hasn’t worked so far.
How long ago did you first read a productivity article that recommended the Nike philosophy (Just Do It!)?
I’ve beat myself up about my productivity challenges just like you have.
I’ve asked myself all of those questions until … I finally got it. I’m not like those folks who can just sit down and produce at will. I’m built differently. Maybe you’re different too?
Well, maybe like me, you’d respond better to a spiritual/emotional approach than an intellectual one?
Remember that Huey Lewis and the News song, “I Want A New Drug”?
I want a new drug
One that won’t make me nervous wondering what to do
One that makes me feel like I feel when I’m with you
I want a new drug
One that won’t keep me up all night
One that does what it should
One that won’t make me feel too bad
One that won’t make me feel too good
Not too good, but better than you feel now about your ability to create and complete.
What’s my new drug? It’s all natural and you’ve already tried it.
Here’s the good news. Resistance is a bully that only picks on the weak. Once you’re engaged in authentically inspired creation – resistance runs.
There is not something you’re supposed to do. There’s not something that you should do. There is only that which you are inspired to do. And how do you get inspired except by the contrast? It’s the life experience that gives you the idea of the desire, and then as you focus upon the desire, the Energy flows. Abraham
While inspired to create you will be in the flow. You’ll create in the zone of true calling inspired authentic aliveness.
According to Csíkszentmihályi, flow is completely focused motivation. It is a single-minded immersion and represents perhaps the ultimate in harnessing the emotions in the service of performing and learning. In flow the emotions are not just contained and channeled, but positive, energized, and aligned with the task at hand.
This is a critical departure from the advice of most gurus who tell you to ignore your resistant feelings and just get started. They tell you that you don’t have to feel good in order to create.
They’re right, you don’t have to, but feeling good sure beats sucking it up and pushing through. I’m not telling you to ignore your feelings.
I am recommending that you deliberately tap into authentic, inspirational feelings and use those to create and complete.
I’m amazed that so many well-meaning experts tell you to ignore resistant feelings and push through. Don’t they know that what we resist persists and that pushing feelings aside actually increases resistance?
I’ve discovered that creative flow can be brought about by a combination of authentic inspiration, crystal clear guidance and encouraging support.
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. Howard Thurman
In a state of flow we are inspired and fired up to deliver. In a state of flow eagerness and willingness to follow-through isn’t an issue.
Creation doesn’t have to be a struggle. Creation isn’t a struggle when inspired in a state of flow. Want some of that? Good, because that’s what I’ve got.
I think that a solution like this one had to be created by a regular guy like me. It had to be realized by someone like you, who also struggled with completion. If I hadn’t struggled and failed while trying to use traditional productivity techniques, I wouldn’t have looked for another way.
Here’s what six happy creators have to say about the experience:
Suzanne Bird-Harris, Websites in WordPress:
Initially, I used Tom’s creation product because I didn’t believe I could create an entire product in five days and I wanted to see if I could actually do it. (I’ve created products before, but never in just five days!) I’ve now successfully created and completed TWO products in two different five-day sessions! I plan to use this process over and over again because it’s effective and provides the focus and support I need to complete what I start.
Tom’s 5-day product creation process is a winner because through the audios, Tom provides the encouragement and sincere belief in me that keeps me engaged when I get overwhelmed and want to jump ship. Tom’s creation process is so different from my own that I felt like I had scrambled eggs for brains at the end of Day One. But the encouragement he gives kept me from quitting, and the differences in our creation processes helped me identify and resolve areas where I used to trip myself up.
Thank you, Tom, for Create Your Inspired Info Product in Five Days. I will be recommending it to all my clients – past, present and future – because every one of them needs to create products, too. Why would I let them struggle when there’s another way?! I won’t!
Christine “Keena” Friedrichsmeier, Purpose Rich
If you have dreams of sharing your knowledge and getting paid for it, or creating passive income streams in your business, then you should check out Tom’s new course – it is valuable and different than what’s out there already.
This course is not your boring, “just the facts”-type of publication. Tom’s stamp of individuality is found throughout. It is well thought out and has excellent exercises, and the audios are a unique and powerful addition. Tom puts his coaching expertise into this product and it shows. If you are new to making your own info-products and/or want Tom’s unique bold support, then this is IDEAL.
Overall, I highly recommend Create Your Inspired Info Product In 5 Days, but this program is not for the faint of heart! Tom recommends a minimum of 2.5 hours a day, but not all days will require even this much time. Days 1, 4 and 5 are all 2.5 hours or less. However this is indeed an absolute bare minimum for day 3. You will require a LOT longer if you are writing anything of length or want to incorporate multi-media for a larger, more complex product. I found Day 3 especially difficult to put in the requisite time working a day job and with family obligations. But this is a product that you will continue to use for idea generation, motivation and product development in the future. It’s a great value!
Charlene Nora, World Unbound:
At first I wasn’t sure if I could actually work to bring a product into being in just five days but I found that my self-doubt was erased and that I was completely capable of getting a product ready to market. It seemed like Tom knew exactly what resistance I would encounter each day because the daily audios that accompany the workbook inspired me with just what I needed when I needed it.
The questions provided the structure I needed to extract my ideas and get them from my head to paper and the Resources were valuable to complete my product’s marketing plan. I’ve already recommended this product because the format doesn’t allow room for fear. If you have a message you want to bring to the world in product form, this is the way to do it.
Stacey Shipman, Feel Good Living:
At first I didn’t think I needed someone tell me how to create a product. With so many ideas, I found Tom’s process provided both the time structure and accountability I needed to complete, one product at a time. For me, the brainstorming questions and the decision-making process were most useful.
The five-day process provided a sense of completion in a short amount of time, as well as the start of a marketing plan to help sell my product. Just because the product is complete, doesn’t mean the process is complete. I recommend Tom’s product to anyone who is stuck with several ideas because it helps you pick one and take action towards completion. That is something you can feel good about!
When I initially saw Tom’s 5-day process I wondered if it would be just another product I’d purchase and never use. I also wondered if I could use it to create a service instead of a product. I’m happy to say that I used it as instructed and it worked!
This process was like an authentic content extractor for me. I was able to download so much from my brain to paper that I now have a completed service along with plenty of good marketing copy. Because Tom believed that I could complete my service in five days, I believed I could, and the audios encouraged me every step of the way.
I used to have just a lot of good ideas. Now I have a solid program ready to roll out and sell. Don’t hesitate to buy this process – Tom has done his part, and done it well. If you do your part, in just five days, you’ll have created something that didn’t exist before. If that’s what you want – this can take you there.
Marlene Clay, Divorced Happily Ever After:
Most of my life I’ve been a suck-it-up and just-do-it person, but I also had to push through a lot of excuses. Using this process I was actually excited to create each day and I went to bed each night knowing I’d be one step closer to completion.
The product discovery questions really helped me get to the core of what matters the most to me and I was especially surprised how easy it was to convert my answers into actual product possibilities on Day Two.
For a rule-breaker, I was impressed with the clarity and effectiveness of the instructions. They always worked , so I followed the rules. Well, except for one. Don’t tell Tom but I took a break after Day Three and still got everything complete within seven days. If you want a stress free creation process – this is it!
I’ve been coaching for 11 years and I’ve leveraged three dynamic creation concepts into this product completion process.
This is a create-as-you-go, creation/completion process that is structured to guide you through completing your first true calling-inspired, info product in five days.
You don’t need to write War and Peace – you just need a win. You need the urgency built into a five-day structure. In five days, you will only have time to complete the suggested actions.
It works well because there is no wiggle room. The urgency, clarity, structure and guidance combine to squeeze out self-doubt and over-thinking.
It works well because in a state of inspired flow you’ll see things more clearly and make quicker connections. In such a state you’ll be more eager and fired up.
It works well because when you aren’t struggling with resistance, you’ll have more space and energy to focus on the task right in front of you. The structure demands present-moment focus.
It works well because you’ll make more authentically intelligent decisions in far less time. You’ll come to these decisions sooner because the entire process is framed to extract and express only your deepest authentic wisdom.
Authenticity is important to you. You won’t tap into your core wisdom and be inspired to follow-through by creating any old product. It has to have meaning. Since I’m a true calling coach I know how to guide you in the deep excavation of your best authentic guess.
Nope. Your quest for certainty and perfection is part of what’s kept you out of action for so long. Callings evolve when engaged. Whatever your best guess in action turns out to be, it will be far better for you than any perfect plan you’ve never enacted.
By creating your first true calling inspired info product, you will have actually started your first true calling inspired business and that’s a very big deal. It’s big because you may have never begun without this small start.
Each day is a combination of inspirational audio and creation workbook. As long as you don’t jump ahead and complete all of the actions, you will have a product in five days. This process takes you through the first five stages of product creation/completion as follows.
It’s different because it uses the three most powerful concepts I’ve tested with clients in 11 years of true calling coaching. They are:
It’s the combination of these concepts that work together to keep you creating while in an inspired state of flow. That’s why this product is more than an information product.
This is an experience product that fully engages you in the experience of creating and completing as you go.
So you not only get to create while inspired but also your inspiration builds as you go because of the increase in real time self-confidence and momentum.
