📘 1. Book I Read This Week – Key Person of Influence by Daniel Priestly
Yesterday’s beach read.
Here’s the premise:
- Every industry has an inner circle of “Key People of Influence.”
- They are the top 10% of an industry.
- They are known, liked, and trusted.
- They make more, achieve more, and contribute more.
- If you aren’t a KPI in your industry, your full time job is to become one.
- Anyone can do it.
There are 5 steps to become a Key Person of Influence:
- Pitch – Write the perfect pitch that explains a compelling answer to the question “What do you do?”
- Publish – Publish content regularly. The author HIGHLY recommends writing a book as the best way to get your message out and build credibility.
- Product – Create products that leverage your unique skills, talent and ideas.
- Profile – Raise your profile and become liked, known, and trusted.
- Partner – Partner with other KPIs to structure and maintain strategic relationships.
Also: Did you know it takes about 7 hours and 11 points of contact before a stranger feels safe enough to trust you with a purchase?
How can you do that at scale?

😫 3. The Different Between Busy & Non-Busy People – Article by Joshua Becker
When someone asks you, “how are you feeling,” do you respond, “busy”?
First of all – “busy” isn’t a feeling.
Overwhelmed, stressed, scattered, distracted, guilty, frustrated, tired.
Now THOSE are feelings.
This article breaks down the differences between “busy” and “non-busy” people.
I think they’re pretty spot on:
- Unbusy people know their purpose – They know their goals, what they want to pursue, and how they want to live.
- Unbusy people say no to things that don’t align with their mission – They say no the urgent requests, the popular requests, and the countless opportunities in front of us each day.
- Unbusy people know they have choice in life – Busyness is a decision we make. We are never forced into a lifestyle of busyness.
- Unbusy people don’t get distracted by unfulfilling pursuits – The sooner we recognize the pursuit of more will never fully satisfy, the easier it is to unbusy our lives.
- Unbusy people value the significance of rest – Rest is essential to our bodies, our minds, and our souls.
