Think Different Theory

How I Figure Out and Set Goals

WHAT IS THIS EPISODE ABOUT?

In this episode, I’m going to talk about my plans for the podcast and my company, Vivid. I will talk about what I have achieved so far and how I figure out where I’m going to put my money, my time, my effort, and how I plan out the future for things so that you can understand the thought process behind that.

WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?

I’m going to go through the 5 step process that you need to master includes identifying your “Dream Scenario”, adding limitations or restrictions, identifying your non-negotiables, adding the “next logical steps”, and setting a deadline. Listen in to learn the exact process I use.

00:00          Man, I’m about to raise $10,000. If this thing fails, I’m out 10 grand, and there’s a chance that it could fail. There’s no guarantee in any of this. And so, like guess I’m setting myself up for success in the best way possible, but I see some people out there that are just like, “Yeah man, just try it, just go. This is…” I’m like, “Listen man. You… you put $10,000 on the line. How do… how do you know if it’s gonna work or not?” I want to give myself the best chance to win. So this is how I figure out where I’m going to put my money, my time, my effort, and how I plan out the future for things.

00:31          You are now entering a new paradigm.

00:35          So, here’s my issue. I wanted to find the answers to life’s biggest questions. Things like, how do I become happy and live with purpose? How do I make more money doing what I love, and what does it mean to be truly successful in all areas of life? My name is Josh Forti, @JoshForti on Instagram, and I ask life’s biggest questions and share the answers with you. My goal is to help you find purpose, happiness, and open your mind to new realms of possibility by helping you think differently about everything you do, know, and understand. On this podcast, we think different, we dream bigger, and we live in a world without limits. This is a new paradigm. Welcome to The Think Different Theory.

01:16          What’s up guys? Welcome back to another episode of The Think Different Theory. My name is Josh Forti, and I just gotta tell you, it has been a week. Let me tell you. Super… super crazy. So many things going on. So many different pieces. I had to go home for some stuff. I had trains get delayed. I actually… let’s start there. So, I’m going home this week, or this was last week, I guess. I was supposed to leave at 5:00 AM on a Monday morning, and I was going to take the train home, simply because the train promised two things, they promised WiFi and they promised cheaper prices than a flight. So, naturally, I was going to fly home to Chicago and then drive back at a meeting that I had to go to, and then I was doing something with my family. I actually went golfing with my brother. It was awesome.

02:02          And my dad, it was awesome. But, I took the Amtrak, or I signed up for the Amtrak. It was 178 bucks for a round trip to Chicago and back. And they said it was like an eight hour… about an eight-hour train ride from Omaha to Chicago, and then back. And, they said there’s going to be WiFi, and they said there was going to be cheaper prices. So, I’m supposed to leave on Monday morning at five… I think it was 5:08, or something like that, AM. And, at like 11 o’clock the night before, I go and I have a…, or I get an email that says, “Hey, your train has been delayed. Please call in to see what your options are.” So, I called and I waited on hold for like, I don’t know, like 10, 15 minutes. Not Terrible, but you know, I know. And, they’re like, “Yeah, it’s been delayed three hours, so you’re gonna want to show up. It now leaves at 8:08 AM, so you want to get to show up around like 7:15, 7:30, you’ll be just fine.

02:55          I was like, “Sweet. Sounds good.” So, I go, wake up the next morning, I go to the train station, I get there at 7:30 and I walk in, and this place is a ghost town. There is no one there, like no… hardly any cars in the parking lot, there’s not a single person in the waiting room lobby, nothing. And so, I walk up to the counter, and there’s one little guy sitting behind the counter, and I’m like, “Hey, I’m here for such and such a train and all that. And he goes, “Oh, you didn’t get the update.” So I pull up my phone and go through the emails, no update. He’s like, yeah, that’s been delayed another eight hours, maybe 11 hours, may be canceled, we’re not sure. But, I would show up here in eight hours and come back, and just see what’s happening. And I’m like, “So you don’t… what?

03:40          I can’t… I can’t do that.” So he had no idea when the train was going to be there. So I ended up having to go to the airport. Now, the airport is about 10 minutes away, probably not even… like an eight or 10-minute drive. So I get my car, I made a couple phone calls, and I’m like, “Well, I can’t… like I can’t wait eight hours. I’ve got to be in Chicago. I’ve got a meeting to get to. I gotta pick up my car. I gotta get the hotel, all that. So, I get to the airport, I’m going to fly. I’m literally buying my ticket in the security line. I’m waiting for security. I’m almost there. I like buy my ticket. I get to the security line and it was like, “Oh, it was was like 375 bucks for a one way ticket for 48-minute flight. It’s crazy.? But anyway, so I go, I get there, I go through the whole day and then I get upgraded.

04:18          This is actually super sweet. I got upgraded. The car that I rented got upgraded. I only paid like 150 bucks or something like for it for two days. And I got a Ford Mustang convertible, which was super cool. Anyway, I ended up going golf and have a great time come back and then the train goes and there’s like, yeah, it’s on time. You’re good to go. It’s gonna be eight hours, ends up being an 11-hour train ride with no Wifi and no service for like eight hours of those 11 hours. So I had no Wifi, no Internet, no phone service for this time. It was quite the experience. Let me tell you, I’ve got some reading done. So needless to say, that was a crazy week.

04:53          I get back on Thursday, I’m sorry. I get back on Wednesday and then like Thursday and Friday and Saturday, which is like back to back to back to back craziness. And um, lots of good things. Got To meet and talk to some huge people like people that are really big and really hugely manage huge pages and networking and all that stuff. Anyway, I tell you all this because life changes and life happens. Sometimes it’s hard to plan and you’re going to have to make adjustments to go along with different things and sometimes you just have to go and do things on the fly. And it has been, it’s been quite the crazy week. But on top of that, I’ve shifted my focus now to the thing, different theory. So what does that mean? Well, as you guys know, I have been the last, I don’t know since December or last year.

05:37          I mean we launched officially in January, but since really December, January of this last year, this year I’ve been building a company with my business partner, Lauren called Vivid. And we do as an agency, we have funnel bills and all sorts of fun stuff over there. We do some influencer marketing campaigns, high ticket funnel stuff. Um, really, really good. It’s awesome. And we charge pretty high ticket for that and that has been doing awesome. We’ve been cranking with that. We’ve been building systems. We’ve got I think four people working for us now, or three, three or four. I’m not even sure on the fulfillment side. Some of them are like contractors or independent like per project basis, but full-time person working for us. It’s been awesome. And the whole goal with that company, as you guys know, if you’ve been listening to the podcast for any length of time or you’ll listen to what I was talking about that, but the goal of that company for me, it was not to actually scale the company to, you know, tens of billions of dollars.

06:24          That’s not my long term play. The goal was to build that company up to a place where I learned systems, I learned how to scale, I learned how to get a $2 million run rate, all that type of stuff. And then the kind of removed myself from that process and kind of maybe not sell it off, but uh, eventually I’ll sell it off. I mean that’s the goal going into it. But uh, kind of get to a place where I can go and use that cash, use that capital. You use that experience to go and do what I’m really passionate about, which is a thing, different theory, which is this project here that I’m doing now. And so I’m finally at a place now, I’ve kind of taken a step back in business for the last month. And because of that, it allowed, it forced us to get people in place to take care of everything.

07:04          So I pretty much stepped out of now stepped out of, I shouldn’t say that I’ve, I’ve significantly taken a step back from vivid and I do all the sales, still are a lot of the sales calls still. But the rest of my role in there has really shifted in a freed up my time to allow me to focus on the think different theory and really blowing that up. And uh, just having all sorts of fun with that. And so coming up, we have some amazing interviews. So you guys know, I’ve only done one interview on the podcast so far, which is Taylor Welch, which you guys gave amazing feedback from that you guys all loved. It was super cool and I’m so glad you did. But we decided alright, since you guys liked that interview so much, we’re going to start doing a lot more interviews.

07:41          We’re going to do some really cool stuff. And we actually have a launch coming up in July, a drop where we’re gonna be releasing something that I’ve been working on for a long time and kind of putting together, it’s actually version 2.0 when I first dropped the podcast. I can’t tell you all the details of everything that we’re doing on July 1st. Just know that the first week of July, you don’t want to put this on your calendars. We’ve got some amazing stuff happening we’re spending, I bet you order and drop darn near close to 10 grand, uh, on, on this week, the first week of July with everything. We’ve got amazing interviews lined up checklist. Okay. Check out some of these interviews coming up then. I’m gonna tell you about more July 1st. Okay. So for the podcast coming up confirmed, we’ve got Ryan Stewman who is the hardcore closer, uh, if you’ve got, just don’t know who Ryan is.

08:29          Big, big in the sales world. I think he does between eight and 10 million bucks, has a couple different companies, has the craziest story. I mean, he’s like Ben to jail a couple times a felon. Uh, he worked his way out of absolute nothingness to being one of the top salespeople in the country and just this absolute beast at what he does. So He’s coming on. We’ve got a guy named John, uh, Chris Santee I think is how you pronounce or Cra crap. Chris, Donnie, John, Chris, Donnie I think is how you pronounce his name. He does over a million dollars a year with affiliate marketing with no team. It’s just him. He’s an absolute beast. I’m super excited about that. We’ve got Chris Voss, his interviews actually dropping and the first week of July during our launch, he is the former head of hostage negotiations for terrorists with the FBI.

09:16          And now, uh, the author of the book never split the difference. Who’s been, he’s been awesome. I’ve learned so much from him. Big into sales now sales negotiation. We’ve got Natalie Hodson who has like a million people following her on social media and made like $4 million for like a $67 ebook or $37 Ebook, uh, being just truly authentically herself. She’s amazing. Call an Irwin who is the CEO of red lines, steal handpicked by Donald Trump’s association to come celebrate me in America Day. Rachel Peterson, the queen of social media and social media marketing, founder of Smu Ackbar who, uh, Aqua Sheikh, he is all about, uh, make more, give more. Here’s a crazy story. Was homeless almost died. Uh, I think it was a drug overdose and has gone on to help people make millions of dollars. We’ve got Case Kenny who is the founder of Prsuit, founder of new mines at who it is, which is a top hundred podcasts in the country on iTunes.

10:09          We’ve got Steven Larsen. I mean, who is Russell Brunson’s former funnel builder. We’ve got so many cool people lined up for that and we have a whole list of even bigger people were trying to get, we’re trying to get like Bernie Sanders on. We’re trying to get a Andrew Yang on, um, to, to kind of see their side of things. We have a whole list of YouTubers were trying to bring on a whole list of uh, entrepreneurs like Ryan Aher and, Jay Shetty, na’s Daily, Gerard Adams and my let Tai Lopez, Grant Cardone, Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss, Lou’s house. I’m in cynic, Tom Bilyeu who like all these people that we’re trying to get on the podcast that we’ve reached out to and it’s just going to be amazing. I’m so excited for what The Think Different Theory is about to become and I’ll kinda want to just paint this vision of the thing, different theory for you and talk about how I plan for the future and show you a little bit like kind of inside my mindset of what I’m trying to build and how I decide these things.

11:01          So going back to July 1st is halfway through the year. It’s kind of a pivotal day or pivotal week for the podcast. We are, there’s, let me back up. In January when I first launched the podcast, I launched something called the mind shift playbook. Now, if you don’t have it, it’s not available right now. Actually, you go on the website gets you still technically up. But we’re coming out with a version 2.0 of that, which is way better. The first one was awesome, but it is a little playbook that talks about actually the, the tagline for it is five simple techniques to rewire your brain, create new habits, and transform your life. So this is all about the mind. It’s all about creating habits, mastering your mindset, and really having an awesome mindset, removing limitations, thinking objective, Lee, all the things that we’ve talked about on this podcast.

11:49          But I’ve been really studying and reading books for the last several months on these topics and figuring out how to design this in such a way that helps people expand their mind. Think objective, really learning how to create new habits and like rewire their brain. And that’s what this is all about. So version 2.0 or second edition of the mind ship playbook along with videos. Uh, there’s a handbook, there’s videos, there’s all sorts of resources in there that’s dropping on July 1st we also have the store that’s dropping with you where you can get thing different. Three merge with some different stuff was going to be awesome. We have interviews lined up. We have so many cool things. Plus we have a huge giveaway we’re giving away like iPods and apple watches and books and all sorts of fun stuff. July 1st to July 5th giveaway there by the sixth. Make sure you’re listening.

12:35          We have an episode of the podcast coming out every single day that week, five episodes the first week of July. Super, super cool. Now why do I tell you all this? Why is this important? Well, See my vision for The Think Different Theory is I really want to totally reform the way people think and the way people learn. I’m very passionate about education specifically when it comes to the mind and I believe that every person has the ability to go and um, to learn and be successful. But we all learn differently. And so I’m very passionate about that and how I’ve really gone out and planned and designed the podcast for the future. I want to share that with you now coming up actually on July 1st since there’s gonna be a lot of influx of traffic, a lot of new listeners to the podcast coming in. I’m actually going to go through and kind of paint a vision for the future of the podcast, so I don’t want to, I don’t want to give too much away now for you know, so let’s not repeat content, but I do want to talk about how we’re designing the future of the podcast, how we’re designing the future of my events and what I’m doing and how I just decide things in general so that you understand the thought process behind that and how we do these things.

13:45          Because we have really big plans, like we have amazing plans and I really think the podcast is going to turn into stuff much bigger than that, where, I mean we’re going to add a youtube channel later on. We’re going to have like an in-person-personventually. We’re gonna have so much cool stuff, but I tell you all that so that I can show you. Okay, like I make these plans and then I go and do them. Like I’ve actually been able to follow through on things. At the beginning of the year. I said, okay, I’m going to launch the podcast for the first six months. I’m going to go through, I’m going to just find my voice and then I’m going to make a shift. We’re gonna do another big push and where to do these things, and during that time I’m going to grow my company. I’m going to systemize it, I’m going to be able to ruin myself from the process and boom, all those things have happened.

14:26          The people that I wanted to get out of the podcast, like Rachel, like Steven, like Natalie, these people, they’ve said yes, we’ve gotten them. I’ve been able to plan things out and then actually bring them to fruition, which was a huge deal for me because I never used to be able to plan successfully for the future and I’m continuing to get better and better at it now. I’m not an expert, I’m not amazing at it. And I’m sure other people have more hacks, but I just want to share some insight that’s really helped me be able to do that. All right, sound good? All right, let’s rock and roll. So the first thing is when I go and I plan anything and whatever it is that you’re trying to decide, whether it’s planning an event or doing a launch or building a business or achieving a successful goal or you know, a place where you want to be at in your relationship, whatever it is, the first thing that you have to do is you have to set clear, get clear on the expectation of like what it is that you’re trying to do.

15:18          Okay. And so what I do is I go and I draw out the ideal situation, like a realistic, and you can be pretty aggressive with realistic because I think you can accomplish more than you realize, but like a realistic goal. But in the dream scenario. So for example, I can say like, listen, all right, by, you know, the end of the year, this year, I want think different theory to have x number of subscribers. I want to show, I want to have interviewed a bunch of really cool people and I just, I want it to be at this place and then I get really specific on that. So I’m like, all right, in a dream situation I would have a youtube channel up. I would have a daily email going out. I would have an in-person studio office. I would have, you know, um, interviews lined up twice a week or three times a week they would be flying to Miami.

16:12          Uh, if that’s where I’m going to be living, like, you know, like that type of stuff, right. Everything in an ideal situation of what that would look like. No, I’m not being crazy with it, right? Like I’m not being like, yes, I’m going to have 1 million downloads a month. By the end of the year I’m going to have Dwayne Johnson and Taylor Swift is get like, not like that. Like things that you can control in an ideal situation, taking off time or strange taken off money restraints, like things of that nature. Like what would that look like in an ideal world? Because here’s the thing, I think a lot of people, they don’t ever draw that out because they know they can’t achieve it. Like, listen, I know that and let’s just say, let me, let me paint this up. Hey, by December 31st of this year, I want an in person, a podcast studio in Miami.

16:57          I want people to come down every month. Like I said, I want, you know, a million or I want a, you know, 100,000 downloads a month. I want, um, you know, a backdrop. I want a youtube channel launched, I want content, I want different educational courses. I want, you know, a cohost. I want all these different things. Okay. If that’s the vision of what I’m painting and I’ve sat down there and I get really, really clear on all those things and I map out what those different things would be and what the different pieces would look like and the channels that I would want started and the education pieces. Now I at least know the direction that I’m headed and see a lot of people what they never do is they never actually go and just get clear on that, and we’ve talked about this before, when designing your, you know your dream life, same thing is true when designing like events or whatever it is that you’re trying to do.

17:38          Goals I should say, just goals in general so you get really, really clear on it. So that’s the first thing that I do. The second part is I go and I say, okay, what limitations do I have that are going to prevent me from not getting there? Or like what limitations do I need to abide by and within? What are things that are going to get in my way rather than allow me to put 100% of my money, you focus, budget, everything on this. So I could be like, okay, listen, I know that between now and December I am going to, uh, also be building a business or I’m also going to be, um, you know, traveling. I got some travel where I’m going to be there for two months out of the country for two months. I’m going to be at some speaking gigs.

18:19          I’m only going to be able to dedicate, you know, $5,000 a month in ad spend to the podcast. You know, you put in these limitations that you know are going to be there because you want to be really realistic with these things. And this works better, especially from a money perspective if you have a limited budget or if it’s coming up. So for example, in July, on July 1st, um, lunch, we started planning this about a month and a half ago when I said, okay, I’ve got x number of dollars in budget to spend on this. So I’m going to spend like $10,000 okay, that’s how much I’m willing to spend on this. And then I also looked at my calendar and I said, all right, I know that over the next month and a half, so the next 45 days, I can only dedicate 28 days to this, right? 17 and my days are, are locked up and are not available for me to do this.

19:02          So I started putting these limitations on. So now I know what I have to work with. And so first off, I’ve designed exactly what it is that I want. In an ideal situation, ideal world, what that would look like. And once again, these don’t have to be crazy things. These are just ideal things, whatever that ideal thinks. Maybe it’s like maybe you’re not going off the deep end. Maybe it’s something that’s totally achievable. Great. And maybe even with all the limitations you’re gonna be able to achieve everything. Great. That’s fine. I’m saying ideal situation, that’s what I’ve done. I have an ideal situation for the end of the year and I have an ideal situation for July. Okay. And then I put in my limitations like, okay, this is what I know that I can’t do because of these things. This is my budget, this is my time constraints.

19:38          These are my, you know, people restraints. I can’t interview these people unless they say yes. Okay, great. Cool. Now I say what is it based on the limitations that I know that I firmly believe that I can go actually do what are the, what are the must-haves, the absolute nonnegotiables of what it is that we’re doing. Okay. Like these, these must happen in order for this launch, this thing in order to be for it to be successful, whatever that thing is and so I might be like okay, I must absolutely make sure that the mind shift playbook drops or let’s go back to the example at the end of the year. I must absolutely have a youtube channel up. Okay. That’s non-negotiable. I’m, I must absolutely be sending out a weekly recap email. Great. That’s non-negotiable. I must absolutely have your two different programs out.

20:24          These are absolute nonnegotiables or one or whatever that thing is or x number of people that are interviewed. And so I go through and I make those things out. The same thing I did with the launch in July, I was like, I must have x number of interviews, I must spend x number of dollars, I must get x number of opt-ins. I must get, you know, these, these are my goals, these are the things that are absolutely nonnegotiables for me in order to make this thing successful. And then I go, okay, sweet. So I know now what my goal is. In my ideal situation, I know what my limitations are and I know what my nonnegotiables are. And so when I look at my nonnegotiables and I look at my limitations and I go, okay, are my nonnegotiables? Absolutely. Like can I do those things without a problem with my limitations?

21:06          And most of the time if you know you’re being realistic with yourself, the answer is yes. Right? Like you’ve got some wiggle room and I still had some wriggle room wiggle room to go out. And then I go and I say, all right now even though I’ve already, I’ve covered my non negotiables and I’ve got some leftover room left to work with, okay, I’m not gonna be able to get to the ideal situation, but what’s the next logical step that I should put in place to help get me towards that, that dream situation? So yeah, I might not be able to have everything in place, but what are the next logical steps that I can do within the limits that I have? And then plan those things out and really go and design and look at all the different things and then put together a game plan that’s going to allow you to get there and really go and push.

21:52          Like, I don’t even know the word I’m looking for, like bounce, bounce it off of anything that could potentially go wrong. So I’d be like, okay, I want to do this, but you know, Oh man, I might have to travel during that time. So that’s going to be a question mark, right. And then figure out, okay, when does this soon, how soon am I going to know whether and I’m going to have to travel during that day and then if it’s a long time out or if it’s just like right beforehand and makeup, make a backup plan for that thing and I just look at all these things logically and when I go through I go, okay, here’s my dream scenario, here’s the limitations that I know I have. Here are the nonnegotiables that I must have. Does this work great? It does great.

22:30          How much overlap do I have? All right, sweet. What are the next logical things that I can add on that? Not to my dream situation yet, but it’s extras and then what are the things that could possibly go wrong that into plan for, they didn’t have backup plans for it to still get to me to where I’m at and then just stick to that. Now this is super important. Maybe I should have said it earlier. Whatever it is that you’re doing, whatever it is that you’re planning, whatever it is that you are wanting to accomplish. Your goal here, your launch or whatever it is, you must set a deadline. It is absolutely critically, crucially important to have a deadline. In fact, I watched a video recently by nos daily who talked about the importance of deadlines and that’s what he thinks is the number one key to his success.

23:10          You’ve got to put a deadline, write it down and say this is when it is going to happen because if you don’t do that, if you don’t have that deadline, it will not happen. I’ve seen this over and over and over again in my own life and that’s why I put the deadline for July 1st because I know, okay, if I have a deadline, these things are going to come and take place because what happens with deadlines is two things. One, you’re actually way more likely to follow through because you know, okay, I’ve got to get this done so you’re going to push yourself into action, and second, it’s Wade. Now it’s more easier to plan. You get plan. If you don’t have a deadline, you can’t play it if you don’t have a date to get it done. Especially if you had other people involved, whether that’s a team or a family member or boyfriend, girlfriend or you know, uh, people lining up to do stuff for you, that whatever that thing is, they need data, they need times and you can’t possibly plan unless you empathize.

24:05          They can’t possibly plan unless you’re planned. So give yourself a deadline and stick through and follow through no matter what. Make sure it happens on that date and time, no matter what else happens, forego everything else to make sure that that happens. And when you do that, I have found incredible, amazing success as that’s just how I do it. I set my deadline, I have a deadline for now, which is July 1st and then my next deadline, my major deadline that I have for the podcast is November 3rd that’s my next major deadline. So I’ve got these things and I’ve got these tools that I’m working towards. And so for me, I work in, you know, year-long deadlines, six-month deadlines, and then usually like I have like a monthly or a weekly deadline for the smaller things. But for sure a six-month deadline so that I know that I’m going to get these things done.

24:49          So July 1st and November 3rd of those are my two next deadlines. So anyway, I hope this helps and I really hope that you’re able to go take this and go, okay, what’s my deadline? What am I trying to do? What’s the dreams and error for that in what’s the deadline for that? What am I limitations? What are the nonnegotiables and um, what can I do above and beyond the nonnegotiables, within my limitations, within my budget, my time, my energy, the people I know, et Cetera. I think you’re going to accomplish a lot more that way. And this works at all levels. This doesn’t have to be a major launch. This could be weekly goals, this could be daily goals, this could be monthly goals. This could be for the small things as well. You can go so far and get so much done if you just set a deadline and go through this process.

25:38          So many people just never go through the process with these things and never set it up so they don’t know what they’re capable of. And remember there is a saying, I don’t even know who it’s by, but it says most people overestimate what they can do in a year and underestimate what they can do in a decade or five years. And it’s so true. Remember that like when I make goals and when I make plans, like yes I might have a big goal, but I don’t just work on that big goal. Like I have little goals leading up to that because if I just have one major big goal, like oftentimes it can be overwhelming. So if I’ve got this major goal of like, oh my gosh, I want to have so much done by November 3rd well, what are the little things in the process of that that I can work up to to make that happen?

26:26          And setting small goals that you can accomplish even if they’re super small, will be so much better for you than not setting any goals at all because you’re afraid that whatever that big goal is too big or that you’re not going to be able to accomplish it. Alright guys, I hope this helped as always, hustle, hustle, God bless. Do not be afraid to think different because those of us that think different or getting of the ones that change the world. I love you all and I will see you on the next episode. Take it easy fam. Peace.
