Notes on The Magic of Part-Time by Jim Rohn

Written by James McDonald

A lot of the Jim Rohn video’s on youtube are 1-7minute sound bites but this one over an hour.

Here are some notes I made on the the “The Magic of Part-Time by Jim Rohn”

Correct the errors of the past and pick up new disciplines for the future.
1. Law of averages
   Do something often enough a ratio will appear (Batting average) (talk to ten get 1)
   Once a ratio starts it tends to continue

“You learn more by losing than you do by winning”

“When I learn the ratio (the law of averages). I make up in numbers what I lack in skill”

Law of averages can be increased by getting better.
   Talk to ten get 2
   Talk to ten get 3

You don’t have to bat a thousand. Baseballers bat 300 and still make 4million a year.

So getting 1 out of 10, 2 out of 10, 3 out of 10 still means you can be successful

Law of averages says you will get 1 out of 10 or 3 out of 10. “I’ve got a new business. I would love you to come to the meeting and be one of the 7”

2. Sowing and reaping (Biblical Mark 4:3, Luke 8:5)
   Excellent seed (opportunity, product)
   Birds going to get some of the seed. Invite a person to a meeting Tuesday night comes and they are not at meeting
      Accept that birds with get some of the seed.
      If you chase birds & leave the field. Distract from future
   Keep on sowing
      Seed on rocky ground shallow soil. Sprouted but killed by heat
      Get person started then whither
      Say to yourself “Isn’t that interesting”. Don’t go with why?, why?, why? Simply some don’t stay!!

   “Discipline your disappointment!”

   Keep on sowing
      Thorny Ground. Growing. Choked by weeds.
      Little distractions, cares, worries.
   Keep on sowing
      Good ground. 30%, 60%, 100%. Don’t ask why the different productivity or payoff. It’s just the way it is!
      Let the 30’s do 30. Let the 60’s do 60 and the 100’s do 100.
         If you try to get them to do more. Wear yourself out
      You have to go through all these experiences.

Zig Ziggler secret to wealth / success: Find a way to serve the many!

John F Kennedy quote “Don’t ask what the people / country / government can do for you. Ask what you can do for your people/country”

Zig “Money isn’t everything but it ranks up there with oxygen”
   “Only floss the teeth you want to keep”
   “If you help enough people get what they want you can have everything you want”

Bible: If 2 or 3 agree on a common purpose nothing is impossible. ( I think this is a quote from Gen 11:6 )

Learn to work with the people who deserve it, not need it.
   Some will waste your time. Train them by your behaviour. Reward productivity.

“Friends are those wonderful people who know all about you and still like you!”

Study, practise and teach.

Don’t miss the small things
   If you live well you will earn well!!!!

Inner circle (your friends / family) – Look after them and they will look after you!
