When you find a system…
… that works…
… what’s the next step?
Look left and right.
Look at your basics.
Are they in place?
No worries about food on the table?
No worries about kids’ education funds?
Basic family luxuries in place?
Get these together and going.
Go for it.
Your decision to scale up should at no time endanger your basics.
You’re scaling up from your extras.
You’re scaling up with stops in place.
If your stops are hit, you’ll change your system till it works again.
You will not borrow from your basics.
You will wait for your extras to accumulate, and divert these into scaling up.
Having gotten all that out of the way, let’s cast a glance at the concrete process.
1x is working, or so you say.
In fact, you’re sure 1x is working.
Now do 2x.
Can you take it?
Do you sleep well at night?
Family life intact?
Fine. You take it from here.
Where do you plateau?
Right before a level where something might get disturbed.
It’s really that simple.
Happy scaling up!
