AFP 37: Squashing The Resistance


Justin Cooke

February 13, 2013

Do you REALLY need to knock out some work, but find yourself making excuses or seeing things pop up that get in the way?  You could have a bigger problem on your hands than you think.

Introducing Dan from the Lifestyle Business Podcast

Joe and I sit down this week with Dan from and Damian from to discuss “The Resistance” – those things that get in the way of us doing the real work that needs to be done.  We’ll share with you our particular struggles and our best tips on how to squash the resistance in your business.

This was a really fun podcast to put together for all involved and I’m really interested in your thoughts.  Our guests brought a ton of energy to the show and it’s pretty fast-paced with a ton of useful nuggets in there.

    North Korean Internet is routed through Germany so you probably already got some listeners there ;)

    Keep on keepin’ on! :-)

  4. Excellent podcast, as always. Love, Love, LOVE the round table method. Stick a bunch of successful, highly-caffeinated guys in a room and the nuggets start flying! Had to listen to this one twice… the second time with a pen and paper.

    As far as ideas that are iterations of other people’s ideas… I don’t know of any hard information or case studies. But, one of my income streams was born from building a web-based app that streamlined (and automated) someone’s techniques they they were teaching. Sort of a “piggyback” thing. It’s probably too complicated to explain here, but if you are interested in discussing it further, let me know.

      Hey, Bradley!

      This one was pretty fun to put together, hehe.

      I know what you mean…we’re currently applying some of the “Own The Racecourse” strategies and productizing some of our services on the outsourcing side a la “Built To Sell” that should be pretty interesting…we’re testing through it now.

    Thanks for this discussion podcast. I’m just reading Linchpin this week and its nice to hear how other people think about their ideas and their resistence.

    I’m doing my 30 day sprint now!

  6. Justin Miramontes says:

    “An 80% Plan TODAY is better than a 100% plan NEVER.”
    “It’s easier to change direction once you’re moving.”
    “Sometimes these educational practices can turn into these permission seeking practices.”

    Good stuff!

    Thanks for the mention !! Wicked episode.

  8. Craig Ernst says:

    Congrats to all four “hosts” this week. Great episode, guys. Made me think, “Damn. Wish I was there having a beer and participating in the discussion.” ;-)

  9. Good times. Two thoughts:

    1. DAMN I talk fast

    2. Dan Andrews is the man, always bringing the discussion back on point.

  10. I would like to hear the hour before the podcast . :)

    I’ve noticed that when I have to do few things , resistance is greater .
    So I don’t spread my tasks but I concentrate them.
    And I do the most important stuff early when I have the most energy ( and patience ).
