1. Experts provide real value.
Real experts provide real value. They focus on using the information they have to help others.
Experts commit to helping others long before money is exchanged. Don’t wait to start contributing in whatever way you can.
2. Experts always look one level up.
Teaching is the highest form of learning and true experts are always searching for better ways to do their craft.
They are always looking one level up to round out their skill set and improve their abilities. There is always something new to learn.
Think about the skills and talents you need to accomplish your job or reach your goals. Who are the people that are one level up in those areas? What can you learn from them? How can you get in touch with them?
3. Experts focus on the process, not the product.
It’s easy to want the Gold Medal, the hard part is training like an Olympian. Everyone loves the product, but very few people enjoy the process.
If you want to master your craft, then your actions need to follow a consistent process.
Consistent focus on the process will create extraordinary results.
4. Experts spend time on actions that can scale.
Experts, by definition, are known for their expertise. Well, you can’t become known if your name doesn’t make the rounds.
For that reason, experts focus on actions that scale.
Now, you might be saying, “But I don’t really care if I’m well-known or not.”
Doesn’t matter. You should still focus on actions that scale. Why? Because they dramatically improve your earning power.
5. Experts reach out to other experts.
It doesn’t matter what you know, if you can’t get the information into the right hands, then you’re not going anywhere.
Experts have the courage to reach out and build relationships with other experts. You need to show the same courage.
Building a network that can help you accomplish your goals is a critical step in success. It’s takes time, but it’s well worth it. That’s why knowing how to email important people is so critical.
