Tim Ferriss Master Class: The psychology of testing (LIVE WEBCAST)
February 01st, 2011 - 12 Comments
Two weeks before the manuscript for “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” was due, I was stuck on the last chapter of my book and didn’t think I could finish. I picked up the phone and called one of my friends and asked him what to do. He listened, he commiserated, and then recommended a book that helped me push through the uncertainty to deliver a manuscript I was proud of.
Everyone loves a dream team. Think about it — in the movies, when somebody important is in trouble, they pick up the phone and call the right person and get it taken care of.
- Relationship problems? Your two girl friends will know the answer
- Not sure what to do about life? Dad’s been there and he’ll talk it over with you
- Got arrested? Call your lawyer, who just happens to know the judge
Think about your own dream team. If you have a job interview tomorrow and you’re not sure what to say, who would you call? Or you have to buy a fancy suit — who would know what to get?
We each have people in our lives who are masters at what they do…and they help us when we need it.
I have my own dream team.
Whenever I’m stuck, I call up one of my friends to help out. Maybe it’s a marketing question, or being stuck on writing, not knowing how to get my publisher to do something quicker. Whatever the case, I have a group of close friends who all help each other back and forth.
One of those friends is Tim Ferriss.
I can’t think of something more powerful than being able to call up a friend or family member and ask them for help. Especially the ones who are truly masters at their field.
I’ve been pretty fortunate to build up an amazing group of friends who have done interesting things. For example, I can call up a lawyer friend, or a best-selling author, or my friend who sold his company for tens of millions of dollars, or a pro athlete — and ask them what they think of a situation.
But if you can’t call those people up yourself, I want to at least let you peek in on how I do it.
And tomorrow, I want to invite you to a dream team meeting I’m holding.
Tomorrow, Tim Ferriss and I will be talking about the Psychology of Testing — live. And I’d like to invite you to come and listen in.
In fact, I’d like you to be a part of it, so I’m leaving around 25 minutes for live questions.
Why testing? Because although it’s not sexy, testing is one of the most important ways to accelerate and get disproportionate results. Instead, on most sites, you see people talking about Twitter (!!) and top 10 lifestyle hacks(!!) and the importance of starting a blog (!!). Total BS.
Testing is as much a series of tactics as a methodology and mindset, and it has helped me get hugely disproportionate results.
Tim and I will talk about:
- The psychology of testing – what we both test, what we’re too nervous to test, even how we’ve tested dating
- Disproportionate results – everyone has the same 24 hours in a day. How does somebody like Tim get so much done? What tools does he use? What does he focus on and what does he simply NOT do?
- The power of a social network – and how to get access to influential people if you’re not famous
There’s really no way to get access to Tim and me, live, answering questions, but the second-best thing I can do for you is to invite you to listen in, live.
