Test Test Test- The most sensible way to live

Updated: Oct 8, 2020

Let's say you need to lose weight- Most people ask these questions after they come to know I've lost over 50 pounds-

1) How much calories should I consume per day to lose weight?

2) How much running will it take?

3) Should I lift weights? 4) How long will it take to lose 10 pounds?

And so many other questions. Well, the simple answer is " NOBODY can tell you that!"

Yes, there are at least 20+ known factors that contribute to weight loss, most of which you wouldn't even understand. And others, you wouldn't be able to measure. So, what do I tell them?

I tell them to start measuring their inches- waist, hip, thighs etc., I tell them to follow two rules to start with- cut out direct sugar, lift weights twice a week. They measure results after a month. If it works, we continue, and if it doesn't we try more aggressive methods.

No guru or teacher or mentor is going to give you an exact answer. If it was that easy, everyone would do it!

Same works for marketing too. And everything in life as well. Mentors and gurus kindly let you know when you screw up and how to minimize the chances of it. But you got to get out there and test it out- All the time!

-> Test a Facebook Ad creative-

->If it doesn't work, try a short video.

->If it doesn't work, try a different target audience.

->If it still doesn't work, try Google Ads.

If it doesn't work, send me an email and I'll show you a better way using our Cerebral Ranking system. But even for that, you should be willing to test.

Having problems with your relationships? Try being honest with them. Try apologizing. Try buying them pizza. Or try a therapist.

Test-> Measure -> Improve -> Test again. Be willing to test first, expect results later. Always be willing to embrace the uncertainty that something wouldn't work, and it's OK. There are a million other things to test.

This simple system has helped me live a satisfactory life, build a business and have good relationships. I do have problems every now and then, but I test out solutions and practice patience.
