Jump on a bathroom scale and see what it registers for a split second. The readout is much heavier than your actual body weight. - Louie Simmons
Stepping on a scale made me think this morning. And go down a Google rabbit-hole.
A person jumping on concrete can create something like up to 60 times their body weight in force when landing.
There's a ton of variables that affect this. Google is your friend if you really want the details, but I'm not aiming to pass a physics exam here. Stay with me here for second.
If taking a step onto a scale can multiply my weight even for just a split second, what else could I do in a day that multiplies my effort.
I mean for anything.
From things we take for granted today like emails reducing the need for phone calls and driving out to meetings. (there's still a place for these, but we can multiply our communication reach with email).
Or using freight forwarders and 3PL warehouses to do all the manual labour involved in shipping and logistics.
Using the services of a purchasing agent. Or hiring a virtual assistant. And working with coaches for fitness, business, and life.
These are all multipliers for our effort.
Just think about how you use the time in a day.
It's the exact same amount of hours, minutes and seconds that stars of sports like Kawhi Leonard, and leaders of business like Jeff Bezos have in every day.
How can you multiply your time right now? What can you setup today so that in a few weeks, months, years, your effort is multiplied?
