Lyrics

[Intro]
(Keep redefining what you do until this is true, until this is true)
(Keep redefining what you do until this is true, until this is true)

[Chorus]
Become the best in the world at what you do
Keep redefining what you do until this is true
Until this is true
Become the best in the world at what you do
Keep redefining what you do until this is true
Until this is true

If you really wanna get paid in this world, you wanna be number one at whatever it is that you're doing
[Jordan Peterson]: You know who Akira the Don is?
[Dave Rubin]: Of course, he's amazing
And it can be niche, that's the point
It can literally be you're getting paid for just being you
You know, at this point some of the most successful people in the world are that way
Oprah gets paid for being Oprah
Joe Rogan gets paid for being Joe Rogan
They're being authentic to themselves
If you wanna be number one, but you'd wanna keep changing what you do until you're number one
You can't just pick something arbitrary
You can't say "I'm gonna be the fastest runner in the world." and now you gotta beat the Usain Bolt
We squander our time with the death of a thousand cuts
We squander our time with the death of a thousand cuts

[Chorus]
A busy calendar and a busy mind will destroy your ability to do great things in this world
To do great things in this world
You need free time and a free mind to do great things in this world
You need free time and a free mind to do great things in this world

You should be too busy to do coffee while still keeping an uncluttered calendar
People who know me know that I'm famous for simultaneously doing two things
One is having a very clean calendar
I have almost no meetings on it while at the same time I am busy all the time, I'm always doing something
And it's usually what we call “work-related”
It is whatever the highest impact thing is that needs to be done at that time and that I'm most interested and inspired about
But the only way to do that is to constantly, ruthlessly decline meetings
[Intro]
Inspiration is perishable
When you have your inspiration, do it right then and there
Inspiration is perishable
When you have your inspiration, do it right then and there

This happens to me a lot with my tweetstorm
I've actually come up with a whole bunch of additional tweetstorms besides the ones that are already out there but sometimes I just hesitate or I just pause and then it just dies
And what I've learned is if I'm inspired to write a blog post or to publish a tweetstorm, I should probably do it right away
Otherwise it's not gonna get out there
I won't come back to it

[Chorus]
Inspiration is perishable
When you have your inspiration, do it right then and there
Inspiration is perishable
When you have your inspiration, do it right then and there
Do it right then and there, do it right then and there
Do it right then and there, do it right then and there
Inspiration is perishable
When you have your inspiration, do it right then and there
So let's talk about hard work
There's this battle that happens a lot
Should you work hard or should you not?
You're slave driving people
All the great founders worked their fingers to the bone
And they're talking past each other
First of all, they're talking about two different things
Employees and the lifestyle business, which is fine
Your number one thing in life, if you're doing that is not getting wealthy
If you have a job, you also have your family, you also have your life
But Keith is talking about the Olympics of startups
He's talking about the person going for the gold medal trying to build a multi-billion dollar public company
That person has to get everything right
They have to have great judgment
[Chorus]
No one is going to value you more than you value yourself
No one is going to value you more than you value yourself
We're here to talk about wealth creation
That has to be your number one
Priority
No one is going to value you more than you value yourself

So you just have to set a very high personal hourly rate and you have to stick to it
Since when I was young I decided that I was worth a lot more than the market thought I was worth
But I started treating myself that way
So always factor your time into every decision
How much time does it take?
So it's gonna take me an hour to get across town to get this thing?
Well, I value myself at $100 an hour, that's basically throwing $100 out of my pocket
