A notebook where you can store information is exactly what any business needs. I know from experience because I have created multiple Tier 1 lenses with the help of a notebook. You can also put your goals into a notebook. If you work on it, you will see results just as I have.
Is that 3 s’s at the end of the word “messiness” instead of only 2? That’s the first thing most people notice: the errors and mistakes that you make in your presentation whenever it is a speech or eBook. All of the wonderful facts and statistics that people present can all be ignored because the visitor is still thinking about the mistake that person made.
Everyone notices messiness as if it were the 800 pound gorilla in the room. When you have to program an app or even a simple code, everything has to be precise. If the programmer is off by a single space or character, the project will not work at all. For these programmers, sticking an unnecessary “a” into a 1000 page long code can mess up the entire code even if everything else was correct.
We can’t be perfect, but we shouldn’t be sloppy either because everyone will see it.
When we connect the dots in a shape or figure, we usually get a drawing in the end. We must learn how to connect the dots everywhere we go. Let’s take school as an example. There are many subjects such as English, Biology, Math, and so on. Some lessons in one subject can easily connect with another subject. A lesson about history might take us back to a religious event. Since history and religion are 2 subjects, 1 lesson ties both of them together. Chemistry is science, but there are many math formulas that need to be used as well in order to get the correct answer.
School subjects are always connecting with each other whenever we see it or not. If you want to succeed online, you must be ready to connect. For example, learning about a religious event in history teaches you about the religion and history of that time period. You’re learning 2 things at once. If you have a good following on Twitter, add a link to your YouTube channel, Pinterest boards, Squidoo lenses, and anything else you might have. Then you get more visitors and teach or show your followers 2 or more things at once.
If you want to succeed, you must create your own goals. Goals make you do better than you previously were doing before you made that goal. Goals are getting you from Point A to Point B. If you don’t have any goals, you can’t get to the next level. Goals push you to the next level.
As for my goal, I am a Squidoo lensmaster who makes money by creating Squidoo lenses. My goal on Squidoo is to make over $1,000 a month before the beginning of summer. Right now I make an average of over $200 a month. I hope to jump up to $400 a month at February and go from there. If I just miss my goal and earn around $800 a month before summer, I am better than where I was before I made this goal. Then I can still get to $1,000 a month, but a little later.

Legos are very popular building block toys that kids, teenagers, and adults like to collect. The idea of building a Lego City is amazing because you’re the one in charge. The more Lego Sets you get, the bigger your Lego City becomes. I am one of the many people who enjoys to build Lego Sets and make a Lego City because I’m in charge.
Online entrepreneurship has the same concept as Legos. Everyone wants to be an entrepreneur. Some of the benefits are that you don’t have to do that 9 to 5 work schedule, there are many ways to make money online, and you can talk about what you enjoy. When you’re able to talk about what you enjoy, YOU’RE IN CHARGE. You get to decide what you talk about, and it doesn’t have to be something you don’t like. I’m not going to write about how gravity works (some people do, but I don’t). I’m going to write about what I enjoy and make money online by doing what I enjoy. The more hours you put into your work, the more results you will get. Kids may not be entrepreneurs…just yet, but many teenagers like myself and adults are entrepreneurs who make money online.
Remember that some of the greatest Lego City layouts you see on YouTube started off with a single brick.
- Making the wrong decisions
- Not knowing what is important
- Seeking revenge
- Only thinking about yourself
- Not being able to understand
- Giving up too quickly
- No goals
If any of these apply, you can change for the better at any given moment. Opportunities will present themselves. If you’re not robbing yourself of success, then keep up the good work!
