Prior Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance
I am bumping this post up because I am reminded of the value and transcendental truth of this yet again.
The first time I heard that adage from two young guys named Hollis and Carter. It was like someone slapped me upside the head and it was
(As some of you may know, I have been involved in what has become a rather large software project that as they often do, is taking a bit longer to put together than we had hoped, yet is still on track for doing what we had planned it to do.
What we planned for it to do is basically make everything that I had cussed various Web designers, Programmers and pieces software out for and make it easy to do for an amateur. That is make it easy to put together Websites, Blogs, Sales and Squeeze pages, and Shopping Carts for someone with no technical skills whatsoever.
Basically we wanted to give someone who’s sole technical skill was to check their email, the ability to create what normally only professional Website developers and Programmers could do at a huge cost, and on top of that, be able to do it in a few hours, not in a few days or weeks that it would take a Pro to do.
Guess what? We freakin pulled it off and I think it is going to be a game changer as far as how Websites, Blogs, Landing Pages, and profitable online businesses are put together.
My point about bringing this up is that this never could have happened had we not planned to do this at the outset. Regardless of how many people said it could never be done, if we had not properly planned it out, it would not have been brought into being and we would have ended up with just another piss poor piece of software.)
The impact was so great because in the Organization People Pattern(tm) of my Personality Language(tm) profile, I am a Free Spirit and I never used to like to really plan anything because it bugged the heck out of me. I know the reason why and it was mostly because I was rebelling against the rigid Structurists that were around me.
By the way, if you have not read the book Personality Language yet, I highly suggest it. It is kind of mind blowing as to what it will tell you about what makes you and others tick. I learned more in that book about basic human behavior than any other book that I have read
I am updating this post. While I would love to show you some results of this, the only thing that I will say at the moment is that this had helped me get several from page listings simultaneously on Google, Bing, and Yahoo. But remember, you have to have great relevant content first and foremost. Content really is King, and Queen and every other piece on the board.
If you are a regular reader here, you know that I don’t often recommend too many products and when I do, they are only the best of the best. And if you are into getting your site ranked high in searches and if you are in business, this should be one of your priorities, then I have something to share with you.
Most of your have probably never heard of Dr. Andy Williams, but you here is why you should get to know him and Colin McDougall for that matter. More on Colin later.
He has what I consider the best tools out there to help you with search rankings. It is not a gimmick, or trick, or black hat junk, but some very advanced scientific analyzing software to find out what you need to do to help get your ranked for certain search terms using latent semantic indexing and giving Google, and Yahoo exactly what they want and need to rank you higher.
Latent Semantic Indexing
As a dyed in the wool Capitalist and a fan of Ayn Rand, I thought I would put these videos of John Stossel’s New Show up for you. Interesting viewing for sure.
In it he discusses Atlas Shrugged, the book by Ayn Rand with a number of people and he talks about the similarities that are going on today.
I am including all 6 videos.
If you want to read the book, I suggest that you don’t watch the videos until afterward.
Would love to know what you think if you have read the book. Enjoy!
Here is a video from Bob Parsons, one of my favorite “REAL” marketers out there. He has started several successful businesses and now owns and runs GoDaddy.com the most successful domain and hosting companies in the business. I do suggest that you use them for your domains. And while I am at it, stay away from 1and1 at all costs. 🙂
Watch and learn how you can make the difference from being in the Red this year or going into the Black.

Could it be that the real secret to profitability is to be Intelligently Lazy? Could it really be the more Intelligently Lazy you, are the wealthier you become?

Day 6 of the werror (web error) on the main page over at Coke. No call from Warren Buffet or email from him either and the same goes for Coke. Might see if I can get through the switchboard at Coke or at Berkshire Hathaway if I have the time but we have a launch […]
