What Happens When You Hit a Huge Number ....511

Forum Owner Belew private msg quote post Address this user
What happens when you hit a huge number milestone?

I have hit some big numbers (for me).

A million, 10 million, 100 million unique visitors.

A 1,000 Meetup members in one group.

10,000 articles written ... and other such numbers.

Question: What happens?

Answer: Nothing.

It's just a number. Numbers are motivators not achievements.

The world doesn't jump up and down, nobody does, when you hit a number. (My wife did buy me a cake and we shared it with friends at the first 1 million visitor mark).

Numbers motivate me, but they are not the end game.

Service is the end game.

What motivates you?

What's your end game?

I often hit what is considered a huge number when playing golf... lol... and my end game is just to enjoy good company and life in general. I stopped chasing money twenty years ago, I use to earn a small fortune but I didn't like the person I was becoming so I changed ... life is much poorer now but richer in so many respects.

Bet that wasn't an answer you were expecting.

@Steve Actually it kind of was.

it's not the numbers but who we are when chasing/not chasing them that matters.

@tienny I only do things that I like, I love solving problems... and delivering results ... but I am just as happy writing an article or dealing accounts.

One of the best however is losing a client, and then having them come back later because they made a mistake... I have had this happen numerous times... oh and I do have clients on occasion say, charge me more ... that's a pretty nice surprise when it happens.

And golf is fulfilling... it's a simple game that you play against yourself more than anything ...

When the time is right, if its meant to happen it will. I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason and that if something is meant to be, it will be ...

Guess those thoughts come from getting old ...

@Steve

I am less laid back


Make things happen is my motto.

And if they don't happen, push harder.

the best way to know the future is to make it happen.

@Belew push, I once prepared a quote for a US company for a new website, around 50K in value and I pushed him so much to close the order he told me to F ... off ...

Did that stop me, of course not, i simply went back saying if I push this hard now to secure your project, just imagine how hard I will push to complete it ... a week later I got the order.

But I've learned to push when I need and to chill when I need ... best of both worlds, that's me ...

Even I love to solve problems. However, I would prefer others to do the accounts. Because I love the creative part.
