It's a pretty even divide between those who agree & disagree with the phrase, "How you do one thing is how you do all things." Is it true? Would you fold your clothes with the same intensity as giving a speech?

Probably not, but there is some merit to the phrase. Today I'll show you why I believe, "How you do the smalls is how you do the alls."

The greatest sale you will ever make is to sell you on you. You're more than enough. Never settle. Keep Selling. 


Today, I'm going to re-examine the phrase, how you do one thing is how you do all things. You're listening to The Sales Life, a top 5% podcasts in the world. I'm your host Marsh Buice and the sales life is taking the skills that I've learned in over two decades of the sales profession. And I'll show you how to apply those to every area of your life, because the number one skill that you need in life. Is your ability to sell everything that you've achieved in life is because you sold your way there. And everything that you haven't achieved is because you settled and you stop selling. So if you want to have more, do more, be more than say no more. Let's get on with today's episode you know, and it's, uh, it's a pretty even divide when it comes to the phrase, how you do one thing is how you do all the things. See there's people on one side of the aisle that say, yeah, I agree with that. But then there's other people on the other side of the aisle and say, no, I don't agree with that Marsh because the way that I fold clothes, I'm not going to approach it with the same intensity that I would, if I'm going to be preparing for a speech or the way that I do my job, I don't do everything the same way, but here's a better way to look at it. The way that you do one thing sets up the way that you do other things. See that one thing becomes your lead domino for everything else. So when you look at it this way, this eliminates the way that people literally take it and say, well, I'm not trying to be a champion dishwasher. Like for me, let me show you what it did for me. The way I approached my health became the lead domino for so many other things in my life.

The 5:

00 AM starts the bust a sweat every day, eat all the foods that you want. Just make sure they're clean before. And no alcohol before five. Those were my rules. And I didn't even want any alcohol after five o'clock because I didn't want to give them a progress away. I was already exhausted. Anyway, I just wanted to go to bed and so those rules right there took me from a 42 inch waistline to a 34 inch waistline and only four months. Just by following those things. No pills, no extra shakes, no diet meal prep. None of that. I just had those rules.


00 AM, bust a sweat every day. If it's 10 minutes or 45 minutes, just make sure you're busted, sweat, eat all the foods you want. Just make sure it's clean food. I know alcohol before. So I think sometimes man, we get too entrenched and we make things way too difficult. And this is why we burn out the results that are received in four months. Actually it became my lead domino in me putting my life back together. See, at that time, the only win I had was my health. I was going through a divorce. I was demoted. I was choking in debt. The only thing I had was my health. That was it! But see, because I stayed with that it reached that tipping point and helped me get myself back together, personally and professionally as well. See the one thing you have to understand is everything is connected. You can be successful & your personal life be a total wreck that can happen, but you can't sustain. Eventually, it's going to catch up with you. One is going to take over the other, like for me, the healthy choices that I began to make, that's what helped me put my life back together. But there was a flip side of that too. There was a dark side. That overtook me before that my personal life, eventually took over my career. It'll catch up with you. So even though at the time I was doing well, it was running the store, but those choices in that darkness eventually caught up with me and overtook me and cause my demotion, here's one thing I want to leave with. You find your lead domino and you may have a lot of things that are wrong with your life. You just need to start with one thing, just find one thing. What is the thing that you desire most like for me, I was, so I was, I was freaked out because here I was about to turn forty. And I said, if I continue at this rate, I was like five pounds away from my old offensive lineman playing days. I was like almost 2 75 to 80 and as a 40 year old, that ain't cute. And I said, if I continue at this pace at 50 man, I'm going to have diabetes. I'm going to be in a world of shit. And so the thing that I desired most, I just attack that one. I didn't know how everything else was going to shake out. I had no idea that my life was going to completely fall apart. I had no clue, but when it did, thank God I had that one thing that became the anchor in my storm. And I was able to hold on to that when everything else was crumbling, the one thing I could do was go outside and run. Uh, barely had money for a gym membership. But even though I was broke, would not give up that gym. . That was the only thing that saved me. So what's the thing that you desire most and it could be your health. It could be the fact that you want to learn more. Or maybe you want to learn sales, or maybe it's a creative. You want to start a YouTube channel or podcast find the thing that you desire and make it easy and most. That's your two rules. The easy means what is the thing that you can commit to that? No matter how hell is your day may be, you can commit to it no matter what your NMW's. Your no matter what. So for me, the health, nothing got in the way of 5:00 AM. Nobody else was moving around.

So 5:

00 AM was my start time. It didn't matter how bad things went at work. It didn't matter what was going on in my personal life. It did not interfere with my family. I could hit the health.


00 AM I dreaded it, but I hit it. So make it easiest. What's the thing. And you start with something small. 10 minutes, 15 minutes. See if it's too complex, you're going to quit. If it's too much of a commitment you're going to quit. So the easiest means you start with 10 minutes and know you're not going to see huge results right then and there. But what you're doing is you're building your averages. See you can't be great until you become average. And right now you've got to build your averages. You got to build in some consistency and the consistency is going to create the wins but you gotta make it. Non-negotiable and the wins will actually increase your competitiveness and the competitiveness you'll naturally raise your expectations and your intensity. You're going, gonna raise the bar. You're going to naturally do that. So you don't have to worry about, well, I really need to hit. You're not ready for that. Start small, build the averages, the consistencies create some wins. And then the next thing you know, Whatever it is that you're chasing, you're absorbing any other knowledge that you can get on that new exercise moves, new podcast techniques, new ways of creating videos, whatever it is, and you increase the intensity and you raise the bar, it's going to naturally come to you you got to make it easy, hard, meaning that you devote just a small amount of time. And when that time is up, that's it. So if you're exercising, some of the moves may be hard for you to do. And so in that 10 minute time, You're going to be like, well, I didn't really get anything done. You keep coming back to that though. It gets easier and easier and easier and you get more efficient at it. And then of course, the consistency builds the wins and the wins increase the intensity. , so here's how the lead domino works for me. The decision to become healthier, created the elimination from toxic people. See, I felt better about myself. I looked better. And so I insisted on better and I didn't deserve. Certain people in my camp. So I eliminated them. They weren't good for me. And then, the healthy lifestyle eliminated toxic people and the elimination of the toxic people created The Sales Life. Where I began to share my journey and teach others that you don't have to settle in life, but in order to never settle, you got to keep selling through communication, curiosity, creativity, continuous learning, and confrontation, but in a productive way. And so now what the creation of the The Sales Life Podcast well, let's just see how high that goes. . Let's get out of here. Be sure.
