BiggerPockets Podcast 425: Focus On $10,000/Hr Tasks (And Outsource the Rest) with Benjamin Hardy

published 9 months ago by : Joshua Dorkin and Brandon Turner

On last week’s episode, we talked to Dan Sullivan, author of Who Not How. This week, we’re joined by his co-author, Benjamin Hardy. Benjamin has spent the last few years getting his PhD in organizational psychology, writing books such as Personality Isn’t Permanent and Willpower Doesn’t Work. These tie perfectly into his new book Who Not How, and will help you get to the business, personal, fitness, or other goals you’re trying to reach. Benjamin goes through why things like willpower and effort are often misunderstood, and how they can be used as tools to get you to your goals, but they aren’t the path. Benjamin walks us through why so many entrepreneurs get “decision fatigue” and why situations often rule over people, not the other way around. Benjamin presents a very unique view on shaping your future, one that isn’t often talked about in the self-help and business space. With many entrepreneurs feeling stressed, fatigued, or just confused, Benjamin’s advice offers not only a practical, but tangible way to accomplish what you want and do better in your business and personal life. We also double down on the importance of hiring people who will make your life easier, not just for your sake, but for theirs as well. Plus, Benjamin shares one of the most important hires you can make that will help you clear hundreds of hours off your calendar. This episode isn’t just about why you should hire an employee. It’s about how you designate your time, and ultimately your life. As Benjamin says “Your future self is more important than your present self”, and for good reason! Check the full show notes here:
