This is the Jackal Underground, podcast number six with egg. Charles and me Jocker willing bidding me. I gotta do and also once again, they Burke good evening. They get a good deal Dave This is a good and its major, so when I did the Jack alive events that we did pre covered I'd called the events decisively engaged, which is a term from military doctrine that I always liked. I was like that term now. The definition of that word. If you go into the one five back one operational terms, graphics, which is a great fear in the military, should have that book going in the military should get that book. Negus get all my answers to big PDF, but
this is how to learn the language of the military. One hundred and one tact, five point: one operational turn: the graphic have a copy to keep on my bed in, like I was falling asleep. I just read through it And when you look in there for the definition of decisive engagement is this in land enable warfare and engagement in which a unit is considered a fully committed and cannot maneuver or extricate itself in the act, of outside assistance, the action must be fought to a conclusion and either one or lost with forces at hand, some situations. This is it results in order to hold key terrain defeat, a specific enemy force or you're a specific objective. This situation. The unit can receive additional forces or support to be able to disengage that last part they they haven't defined as like army. So
writing, gets also call definition right. That definition call, I think please it decisively engaged cool sounding, but it's also a very cool definition. I can't get on this. I've got a win. A Katy, move I've gotta just when so when I name that event, I named it for a few reasons, number one cause. It sounds cool. Number two, because the play on words right because an engagement in all we ve got an engagement is another word for an event, so there's a nice little play on words right last. One is because it's something that I actually like to do to myself I should like to put myself in situations where I don't have. A choice And I realize this area:
is this because I was getting. I got to ask this question the other day on something to easier talking to a client. I think it's talking to a client in NM. Basically was you know that the classic question of how you get stuff done- and I just you know new book. How do you? How do you write that boycott you dollar? Stop you know how do you getting all the stuff done it? It's a really common thing that people talk about, in this day and age. What's the culture echoed trust, hustle culture, I grant culture crying monoculture which, right that culture is a key one thing to talk about how you know are you sure what your process productivity, what you're profited with productivity I would support activity hack. We ve got right area back we're looking for the hack over here. As I thought through this question, because, as you know, When somebody asked me a question, even though
nine words into it. I'm pretty sure I already know the answer. I will not allow myself to jump to that conclusion. So as this guy question of her discretion, a thousand times which my protest productivity thing, which my hit with my one thing all that stuff and it was some version of that question- and I said ok, but would let me That's what this question is when we re assess them. Let me think about the answer and I realize that this word decisive. We engage is a tool that I actually utilise too force myself to do things I put myself indices. Relations that I have to win that I can't get out of in any part of this. As you know, we been we been covering competition competing there. Drink remain. Are we talking to talk about strategic versus tactical and you can get caught up in these tactical winds? Yoke, unwitting, tackling winning but you're losing strategically
and I don't want to quit this nets comic. What triggered my thought about being decisively engaged, because I think myself well, Isaac attacked gold, duration at Turin that you can't get out of I use it and so here's our use it. I put myself into snares what I would have no choice. What is an example that here's an example talking to my publisher and they say: okay, we won't, we know I know you want to do another book. Can you get it to us by this date? And I say yes, that's what I say now once they say. Yes, I'm gonna hit that duty I am going to hit that due date. I am going to hit. I know that. Once I say yes to that book. I know what I have to do. I know it can be a thousand words day. I know I'll eighty five, ninety thousand words whatever the case may be. I back track. And I realize ok now I gotta start writing this. What I have to you, by the way, and it's all these other things you can do so,
there's something here that that that I feel I feel booming, I'm not not looming like you know, PETE from origin, that's up there, on a loom and actual do I feel things that room over me. And what looms over me if I owed, for instance, if I owe a book what I don't want it what looms over me is hey two and a half weeks, and you have to write a whole book that looms over me. I do not want that feeling I dont want. Oh I've got three. We to write a whole book. I dont want that feeling. Not only is it not possible because there's no way, I could carve out that much time every single day to write ten thousand words today, whatever for eight days and get a book done, but you were what's your product at the end of writing ten thousand words today for it for ten hours? What's your product, you practice crap sore
I have that looming over me, so I sign up for it. I sign up have this thing loom over me cause. I know that then what I'm gonna do is start to work to get the discipline in place to write the thousand, today as earlier starting tomorrow, I'll start tomorrow, by the way, when I tell you When I tell my publisher, yup, ah the book to you by this date tomorrow, a thousand words and I'm a rivals, Morton's, undone and I'll. Be three months only two months ago, we started at all that, but I think it's important to hate what looms over. You hate the feeling of things looming over you. Here's an here's an uprising of examples- here's another little example, let's say I'm reading, so that is little excerpt of what we are doing on the Jackal Underground podcast serve.
