(Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4)
It all comes down to this.
First, if you were in my situation what could you have done to make the situation 2X worse?
I’ll tell you in a second. Because I did it. This is by far the biggest takeaway and the motherload.
Have you ever felt “stuck” in life or business? Not seeing a way out. Not wanting to look at the future because it’s full of everything you don’t want (which is more of the same). Do you know what you need to do to move your life and business forward but you just can’t get yourself to do it so you feel like you’ve exhausted your resources and willpower with nothing in the tank left at the end of the day?
Kinda like me and my beloved Blackford.
It’s clearly upside down financially. Paid more for it than I can get out of it. So what do I do? I pay to keep fixing it because the motor’s fantastic.
Truth is, if I’m being honest with myself, it’s not much more than a very expensive motor at the moment.
Once you have committed to something and your commitment turns out to be a mistake, what does the normal person like you and me do?
We double down on STUPID.
We try and prove or justify our stupidity by sticking to it, even when we know there’s a better way. (I could still sell the dumb Blackford, take a loss and get a brand new minivan which in the end would be better for my family).
In a practical sense, if we want to adopt a new habit but we’re low on willpower because our approach to habit building is far too reliant on it, our answer is to beat it to death with more willpower (that we don’t have).
If your personal life is out of whack and suffering because you spend too much time working and have no time for your family, what do you do? You work harder to “just get through it.”
Makes no sense.
We try and beat a dead fish with another dead fish.
How’s that working out for you?
I have a lot of coaching clients who were in situations from which they couldn’t see a way out. No clear path. No choices. And the only answer they could see is just “double down on stupid”…. until they have nothing left to give.
I understand. Trust me. This Blackford situation is case in point.
So how did I double down? You probably won’t believe it when I tell you.
I thought this salvaged vehicle situation was such a catch that I did something horribly stupid.
I bought two. Yes, two.
A white 2013 Ford Explorer Sport (the Blankford) AND the Blackford in one sitting.
Yep, that’s $76,345.21 of salvaged vehicles in one day.
Go ahead, laugh your head off. And no I’m not going to belabor the virtues of the Blankford. My experience with that car hasn’t been much better.
I’ve learned from my mistakes. Have you?
