How to Shred Through 200,000+ Phone Numbers
Getting through 200,000 phone numbers is doable. In fact, I’ll go as far as to say it’s easy.
Now, like most things, you can tear through these phone numbers one of two ways; the long, hard, trial-and-error way on your own or you can do it the tried-and-true way by learning from someone who has consistently done it…in 20 seconds…
Who thinks a phone book is durable? Could you run over it with your car without causing too much harm? Could you wedge it between a door and its frame to prop open an entryway without causing significant damage its pages? Go ahead and nod Yes.
A phone book represents more than just an antiquated way to look up one of 200,000 phone numbers. This book represents a goal; a seemingly difficult task to tackle. It’s strong, it’s sturdy, and it contains massive amounts of information.
What if you could RIP through one in seconds?
You can, and I’ll show you how…
1) Grip is Everything in the Beginning
The amount of grip you have on the phone book is directly proportional to the grasp you should have on your goal. Unless you clamp on good and tight, you won’t make a clean enough start to get anywhere.
2) The Better Your Position, the Better Your Success
You’ll notice when I pinch the phone book correctly, it forms a “V” or line of tiny air pockets down the fold. This is the key to a clean rip. If you’re of average strength like I am, the only way to power through 500 pages is by assuring there is space between each page.
When setting a goal, if you try to tackle every step at once without space between them, you’re not going to get very far. The success is in the space.
3) Move Quickly
Momentum is vital. Once you’ve torn through the first 20-30 pages, you must move with urgency or you could stall out. The same is true when achieving greatness. If you pause before you’ve gotten far enough to keep the pages ripping, then you run the risk of messing up the method. And what happens when you mess up the method? You lose faith that it will work for you.
4) Readjust Your Grip
To get all the way through a goal, don’t be surprised if you have to readjust your technique. If you aren’t strong enough to shred the phone book in one swift move (the same grip as step one…some people can do that!), then adopt the under-grip technique demonstrated. Then, simply twist and pull the finish the job.
We never know exactly what a project will look before we start. Sometimes, you need to change the way you address the work, sometimes it’s necessity to modify your system just to make it through. Even if you must rip each page, one at a time (i.e., break the project down into single, simple tasks and perform each one through until you finish), the point is to get it done.
5) Don’t be Afraid to Lose a Few Pages Along the Way
No method is perfect. No technique works 100% of the time. You may lose some “pages” along the way, you may accidentally pull too hard and tear off the cover. But what’s more important: preventing a few mistakes or finishing what you set out to do?
If you want to do something epic, you must trust the teacher. And the teacher needs to walk the walk.
Who are you learning from these days? Your friends who aren’t making the kind of money you want to make, or the leader who pours sweat and tears into your and won’t give up for anything?
Are you taking advice from family who looks at a phone book and believes it’s indestructible, or are you gleaming every ounce of knowledge off those who believe you can power through a goal like ripping a seemingly sturdy book in half?
If you can follow these directions, you can follow instructions to do just about anything.
You can follow someone who practices what they preach, but YOU are the pivot point.
This exercise is more than just a party trick. It’s proof; proof that you can do something you don’t believe you can do.
Stephen King said,
‘The scariest moment is always just before you start.
After that, things can only get better.’
Prove to yourself that you can do the thing that scares you. And the more you practice this by proving yourself wrong over and over, the better chance you have at tackling the really big things that scare you.
