Tim Ferriss and The Law of the Thinning Air

Tim Ferriss, the brilliant entrepreneur has formulated “The Law of the Thinning Air.”

  1. As one climbs a mountain, the air becomes thinner.
  2. Astronauts use oxygen tanks in space because the air so darn scarce.
  3. Most air molecules compete with each other at lower levels.
  4. At higher levels the competition gets limited.
  5. The same goes for everyday life.
  6. Competition is fierce at the mediocre levels.
  7. The world is a herd of mediocre cattle.
  8. Few strive for excellence.
  9. But if you do, you will find yourself in a stratosphere void of competition.
  10. It’s easy to become a billionaire because there is such scarcity of competition at such high levels.
  11. Be crazy good! Be crazy innovative! Be the expert at something!
  12. Figure out something to help the world than no one else does.
  13. Suddenly you find yourself alone and no one to challenge you.
  14. The whole world is opened to you.

Tim Ferriss

The Pareto Principle

80 percent of output comes from 20 percent of input.

80 percent of results comes from 20 percent of the efforts.

80 percent of company profits comes from 20 percent of the product and customers

80 percent of the work is done by 20 percent of the people

80 percent of the people complain about the 20 percent of the people who are doing 80 percent of the work for them.

Which 20 of sources are causing 80 percent my problems and unhappiness?

What 20 percent of sources are resulting in 80 percent of desired outcomes and happiness?

Identify the advertisement that is generating 80 percent of my revenue!

The Pareto Principle


Do You Have A Well Defined Future?

Hab 2:2 And the Lord gave me an answer, and said, Put the vision in writing and make it clear on stones, so that the reader may go quickly.

I am reading a book titled “The E Myth” by Michael E Gerber.

What he writes is significant.

Most people, including myself, have a poorly defined vision for their future.

Life becomes passive and complacent because of that.

Michael quotes a story about Tom Watson, the founder of IBM.

Tom was asked to speak about the phenomenal growth of IBM.

These were some of his answers.

A # “At the very beginning, I had a very clear picture of what the company would look like when it was finally done.”

B # “ Once I had the picture, I then asked myself how a company which looked like the IBM that I envisioned would have to act.

Michael goes on to state a few more questions.

The name of our ministry is Emerging, Inc.,so I applied them to us.

  1. How will Emerging look like, when it’s finally in place?
  2. Once that Emerging is in place, how will it have to act?
  3. I must fashion Emerging from this moment on according to this template.
  4. Every day I must devote myself to the development components of Emerging and not to do business.
  5. How must Emerging work now to make this future template a reality?
  6. I must have a well-defined future for Emerging and then come back to the present with the intention of changing it.
  7. I must envision Emerging in its entirety from which it will derive its parts.
  8. I must visualize Emerging as seamlessly integrated components of some larger pattern that come together to systematically produce my planned result.
  9. Each part of Emerging must be measurable and function by articulated rules and principles.

So i gave it a shot this morning.

The template for Emerging!

# 1 Write simple “ how to” booklets that will produce an effective rather than an efficient church.

# 2 Create several workable and sustainable cities of revival in the USA.

# 3 Hold seminars and conferences on:

  • Applying Biblical Church Theory to the Current Church
  • The Christian’s Identity in Christ
  • “How To” Seminars for effective ministry
  • Effective VS Efficient Church Seminars

# 4 Globally Televised Miracle Meetings

# 5 Globally Televised Seminars

# 6 Produce Millions of Dollars to Invest in The Global Church

  • How to raise venture capital?

# 7 Extensive Friendship Evangelism

# 8 Turn key products:  Make Emerging a turn key product!

What about you?


Leveraging and Time Hacking as per God!

The best leveraging of time with individual people is to relate to them strictly by the voice of God.
The best leveraging of solutions is to immediately ask God for His solution before you spend time trying to figure it out . Then apply Gods solution immediately.
The best leveraging of time in collective situations such as meetings is to systematically move the meeting by the voice of the Spirit of God. Be willing to alter or hack the meeting at a moments notice if the Spirit of God dictates. This is the key to the breakthrough, the success and the anointing.
