It's time for you. Can't just stops big ask question of the day. Welcome to you. Can't just stop the place for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and dreams. After encountering hundreds of high achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as the actions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each and every day to reach your goals. And now for today's question. What could I subtract from my life to make room for something new? As entrepreneurs and, Hey, let's face it, just as people, we love to add more and more and more things to our lives. We like to feel busy, we like to feel needed and we hate to say no. I know I hate to say no. No is a definite weakness of mine. It's almost like it's a swear word. I don't like to...

...say no, but what I found is that the more I say no to, the more I take out of my life, the happier I am. Over the last couple of years I've taken a lot out of my business, not just my personal life, but out of my business as well. I've taken out clients, I've taken out lines of work, I've very much simplified what I do and that has led to me being far more happier. But not only that, it's also led to me making a lot more money because I've just zeroed in on a couple things and I've freed up my life from all these distractions and I could just focus on those few things. So it feels really counterintuitive, though we love to add more things, especially as a businessperson. Right we think that our customers want this thing, so I'm going to add that, and then somebody asks about item forty vent D, so...

...we're going to add that one. And then they asked about some other thing over here and we're going to add that and before we know what, we have all these different products services and only one person is buying each one of them, or they're just not paying enough money for each one of them, or whatever it is. And this kind of happened to me over time and I've always found in any business I've been a part of, that we make more money by subtracting than by adding, and I think that's true in personal life as well. I think we are happier by subtracting than by adding. So today ask yourself what could I subtract? Maybe from my day to day routine or from the big picture, but just what could you subtract that would make you a happier and more fulfilled person, and hey, might even make you some more money. That's all for today's question. For more great questions to help you achieve your goals, download my fifty favorite questions at you can't...
