It's time for you. Can't juststops big ask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop theplace for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and Greens. After encountering hundreds ofhigh achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many times their impactcomes from the questions they ask as much as the actions they take.That's why I invite you to answer a question each and every day to reachyour goals. And now for today's question. If I had to pay off mybiggest debt in the next three months, what would I do? Well,nothing causes action like a crisis. So if you had a crisis whereyou had to come up with money to pay off a debt in three months, how would you do that? How would you get rid of that debtin only three months? If, you know, if the gun was toyour head, if the if the metaphorical gun was to your head, howwould you pay that off? I would... come up with this money andthen, Hey, let's use these things to actually make the money. Maybewe don't have to pay off the debt. Maybe we could pay off the debtif we wanted to. But we just had the money. Let's figureout how we get that money. You know is I've paid off debt inmy life. That's one thing that has helped me is just to look atthat number and just that helps me focus on making money, because I wantrid of that debt, whatever it was, I just want it, rid ofit. And so let's focus on how I can make that extra twothousand this month, five thousand, Tenzero, whatever it is, Fiftyzero, sothat I can get rid of that dad, because I just felt theweight of that and I wanted it gone, and that's a great motivator. Butif you don't have any, Dad, what big gold you have that youcould get get that money for in the next three months, and howwould you go about doing that? I just think having some of these kindof deadline questions makes you think a little...

...differently, makes you think a littlebigger, a little more creatively, and that you can take those ideas andactually use them without having to have this whole debt thing hanging over your head. So what are some ideas? You've got to make some money and thenext three months see you tomorrow.
