Lesson plan on decisions. Decide that you will be a millionaire by making decisions quickly and changing any plans very slowly or even better NOT at all. Henry Ford created his plan of action on paper BEFORE he took action and he did NOT have every answer to every single question because he knew that if he would be sitting on the bench then the opportunity would go to someone else.

He did an excellent job making the Model T Car and it worked very well out. People and his advisers years later advised him to change to the model A car. Henry Ford refused to do so for a long time. He finally did so reluctantly and he was not all into it, however the point is this, its much better to make the wrong decision than to be a wishy washy person. And you fail forward if you learn from your mistakes and avoid repeating them. Ken Klems music teacher said "Make a New Mistake". 

Furthermore also learn from other peoples mistakes to shorten your learning curve to get to the top quicker. Richard Dennis mentioned on his calls and emphasized the fact that if you have no plans on becoming a leader in this industry then get out.

Finally leaders became leaders because they were intelligent followers. There is a difference between a newbie and a smart beginner. A newbie just flounders left and right & frequently moves by guesswork, BUT a smart beginner looks for the things that brought results to the people who had success before him and does what they did. Not only that, a smart beginner is creative, test things out and he adjusts when he gets unwanted results until he finds the plan that does work.

Just Do It! There is no such thing as try. You either move forward or remain a benchwarmer. There is no such thing as try. The only place where the word try is used when there is a trial going on in the courthouse!
