From Profound to Profane to Pointless and Back

News / Monday, February 18th, 2008

From profound to profane to pointless
and back, these are the thoughts that occur to me that I find worth
noting. Remember, you saw it here first. Here are two to get you started. You can keep track of others on my Iceman Baldyisms page.

Optimize time, maximize profit.

is the thought that I keep at the forefront of my mind whenever I sit
at the keyboard and begin working on a project to improve my websites.
It’s so easy to get distracted by social networking, research,
curiosity and general reading while connected to the internet. Before
you know it, hours have passed and you have nothing to show for your
time while being that much further from your goals of personal and
financial freedom. In other words: Do less, make more.

There is no profit without product.

don’t care what your product is, you’ve got to have a presence and
cause some motion to make some money. If you’re not selling a digital
product, you need to sell a physical product. If you’re not selling a
physical product, you need to offer a service. If you’re not offering a
service, you need to provide some value. Any exchange of money is done
in return for meeting a need where satisfaction of the need is greater
than the money expended to meet the need. Help someone get pleasure or
get rid of pain and you will be paid handsomely for providing the means
to an end.
