Let’s say you’re a ambitious human being who wants to make the most of your existence on this planet.
At the macro level, your problems aren’t going away. You’ll always have conflicts within your relationships, life and business.
At the micro level, individual problems can be solved. Solving micro problems can drastically improve the overall quality of your life.
Over the last year, I sold 3 micro businesses because I could sense that I was moving in the wrong direction.
After selling my 3 micro businesses, I solved 3 micro problems and restored a big chunk of mental clarity as a result.
Sure, I lost 3 extremely nice revenue streams.
But I reactivated something invaluable.
I reactivated my ability to focus on a single, clearly defined vision for my life.
Adopt bigger and higher-quality problems
I’ve experienced the enormous difference between juggling 3 niche businesses, and focusing on a single life-long business.
Juggling 3 niche businesses made my life extremely complicated. Everything was an uphill battle.
Focusing on a single life-long business feels like a downhill battle. It’s incredibly challenging for the first year, but becomes much easier over time.
You ultimately want to chase after high-level problems that simplify your life and lead you towards the exciting future you actually want.
Life is mostly about creating the most exciting future imaginable
Every once in a while I check out Twitter and see tweets like the following:
Boredom is a mid-level problem.
If Jennifer Down is bored, I assume she has all of her basic needs met like food, water, shelter and love. She’s solved her low-level problems for the most part, which is great.
She’s dealing with mid-level problems like boredom because she hasn’t clearly defined a really exciting future for her life yet.
If she truly wants excitement, now she has to define her life’s vision and start moving towards her life’s vision.
This will enable her to move into the “arena of life” where life actually gets interesting. You’ll know you’re playing in the arena of life when you’re actually excited to wake up in the morning.
Have you ever considered what your life could be like if you had the option to…
- Wake up anywhere?
- Do what you want?
- Do work that helps other people?
These are some examples of high-level problems you want to have.
If you’re still dealing with mid-level problems like boredom or uncertainty, you’re still stuck in the mid-level matrix of possibilities.
Once you acknowledge that all possibilities are possible for your life…this is when the magic of life really starts to happen.
Which path leads you to the most exciting future imaginable?
The fastest way to change your life is to define a clear vision for your life, and start moving towards your life’s vision as quickly as possible.
In other words, you change your life by changing your problems.
Readers of Online Heaven can accomplish this by pursuing a single online business that aligns with the vision you’ve clearly defined for your life.
The days of juggling multiple niche businesses are gone.
You’ll probably want to start thinking about going “all in” on one meaningful business that you can see yourself doing for a lifetime.
