Most of us tend to focus on that one big, audacious goal we all have. The problem with that is it may be so far out there or so unrealistic that subconsciously we believe we can’t ever achieve it.
My guest and friend, Tommy Baker, makes the case for focusing more on the process than the result. In fact, in his new book, he teaches how to fall in love with the process and achieve our wildest dreams. Today, we talk about overcoming the law of diminishing returns, how to effectively set goals, the greatest myths of achievement, and how to harness the power of the 1% rule.

Gents, my guest today is return guest, Mr. Tommy Baker. He’s been on the show once before but has since written a new book and I knew, based on feedback we got from our previous conversation, we needed to have him back on.
If you haven’t listened to the first episode, you’ll soon hear why Tommy and I get along so well. His energy is second to none and his enthusiasm and engagement with life are infectious.
He is the founder of the Resist Average Academy and podcast and has a passion for helping people achieve more in every single area of their lives.
Originally, a fitness coach, he’s since expanded his own capacity for growth and expansion and is more focused now on helping people get their mindset right. His first book is called Unresolution and the follow up is what you’ll hear all about today, called The 1% Rule.

Three spots left for our annual Uprising. This is probably the last week you’ll hear me talk about it.
If you haven’t heard me mention it before, this is our 3 1/2 experience in the mountains of southern Utah. It’s unlike any event that you’ve ever attended before. We’ve got physical challenges, challenges to test you mentally and physically, and, of course, the brotherhood and camaraderie that you can come to expect from any Order of Man experience.
My goal during the 3 1/2 days we’ll be spending together is to make you bleed, sweat, and cry. Frankly, things men don’t really get all that much of in their everyday, ordinary, mundane lives. My team and I are there to create new revelations in your own patterns and behaviors and uncover the reason you perform the way you do in life. Then, we’ll give you the framework for developing new thoughts, ideas, and habit.
