My new highly improved course of action (and My 2019 Golden Rule) is simply Learn, Review, and DO!
This is what you do to achieve your true optimal self and how to work less and live more.

How to Work Less and Live More: My 2019 Golden Rule
Here is My 2019 Golden Rule #4 is:
Thou shall not wallow in superfluous education and training. Get straight to the training module related to the actionable task that stands before you, and Learn, Review, and DO.
Big actions taken on the most highly relevant training and important tasks at hand take precedence over extra education and training.
I used to talk about this one a lot. Seldom would it get done consistently.
But now I'm consistently doing it, and it's my most successful strategy implementation to date of the Year. It has turned put to be a great one.
And it's only been made possible because I'm practicing and sticking strong to my Golden Rules 1, 2, and 3.
Don't Waste Time on Non-Related Education
There are simply far too many of us who place extended non specific task related regimented education and training at a premium.
Here is what I mean by extended regimented education and training:
I'm sorry I know this might not be the popular answer, but I must respectfully disagree.
YES I will say for total newbies in online marketing, this is a important concept to follow.
If you are totally new to internet marketing, YES DO all the training here first and in order.
The main issue I see is that too many marketing veterans are believing everything they are preaching to the newbies, and are following such dogma to their own unproductive demise.
There is another issue that can hold one back in their forward progress when they exercise their schedule in such a way.
Sometimes we review a training that we have no intention to take action on for weeks, or even months.
This is a most highly unproductive and total time wasting effort. By the time you are ready to take action on that training (if ever) you have partially (at best) or completely (at worst) forgotten all of the material.
How to Work Less and Live More: Comments from Our Group
When we posed this question of how to work less and live more to our stupendous internet group of international worldwide members, here is what they had to say:
"Not hearing is not as good as hearing, hearing is not as good as seeing, seeing is not as good as knowing, knowing is not as good as acting; true learning continues until it is put into action." (Xunzi) Anything that needs learning can only be done by the "doing" – Anonymous
“Very, very good points! You are right. I have done that myself many time. Go around looking at other training and then not implement it. I have been trying to stick to the basics for now (adding content etc) and when I have time I will focus on specific additional tasks.” – Anonymous
We follow your good advice. We have done and continue to do, the training in order and skip nothing. We have also gone back over and reviewed things many times and had a better understanding by doing so.
Its like layers of learning and you can't skip a layer because they build upon each other.
Thanks for another golden nugget of wisdom.

“Great advice, Kaju. When I first joined the program, I felt overwhelmed that I might miss something if I didn't watch every video and live training that was offered. But I was so new that I soon found that most of the stuff I was wasting my time on way way over my head and just made me feel even more ineffective.
I discovered early on, that I needed to stick to the training lesson I was in the process of completing, take the steps outlined there, write the accompanying post to implement what I was learning, and ignore the rest of the shiny objects out there vying for my time.I'm sure when I go back to writing for my website after I achieve my #1 goal of getting the mess out of my office, I'll need to do a lot of REVIEWING before I can get back to DOING once again! – Anonymous
You lay it out well. I'm finding that I am finding value in going back over the videos from training completed, as I miss things the first time through. I try to watch a video a day from past training. Every little bit seems to help. Now I am going to go "do" as I have a new post ready to put up.” – Anonymous
“You can't beat iterative reinforceable task learning Kaju!” – Anonymous
It's also my way of working and you are
absolutely right it's the key to success.
Acting right after learning and understanding is the best
way to move forward.
Thanks for this positive, energetic and useful post!
Continue your great work!” - Anonymous
