Why Dave Decided to talk About Learning for Two:
With today’s saturation of content and information, smart learning is something that allows us to take our current knowledge and even our current businesses to the next level. When you “learn for two” as Steven Larsen always says, you not only learn it deeply for yourself but you are also then capable of teaching it in a way that your clients learn it deeply for themselves.

[00:00] Welcome to funnel hacker radio podcast where we go behind the scenes and uncover the tactics and strategies top entrepreneurs are using to make more sales, dominate their markets and how you can get those same results. Here is your host Dave Woodward. Welcome back.
[00:18] Well hackers, this is a fun topic. Gods one in one of the things right now with everything going on, we are literally, it's like days away from funnel hacking live. There's a ton of stuff happening here in the office. We were here late last night and try to kind of figure out exactly what, what's the next step, how do we simplify things, how do we make it even easier and better? And how does it, what can we do to make sure that we actually grow from 76,000 customers, 250,000 customers and be able to serve more people? And one of the things that's come up recently that I see happen so much is uh, we've just launched. So the one funnel away challenge is one of the things we launched back in November. We just didn't know. One January, we're doing another one. February 24th. You if you haven't, if you're not already signed up for that one, by all means, please make sure you sign up.
[01:01] Uh, February 20. I'm sorry, it starts actually February 25th. The next one will be March 25th. Um, so I've had a lot of people approached me saying, well, okay, they've already gone through that. Uh, what's the next thing, right? I want to learn what's the next thing I want to learn? I wanna learn, I wanna learn it. What's that? I, I got to get all this stuff done. I got to go fast. I gotta make sure I understand these things. So one of the things that I, I was talking with my son here on there about this morning was this whole principle of are you learning for two? What I mean by that is too often a lot of people are out just consuming as much content as they possibly can. They're trying to just get it through a speed and basically get as much done as they can.
[01:39] So they are, they're onto the next thing. One of the problems that happened to doing that is you forget the importance of immersion. You forget the importance of mastery. And if you take a look at so far as the people who really are the very, very best in their craft and in their trades are those people who have actually mastered something. So I want to make sure as you start taking a look at the skill sets that you're going into, the things that you're trying to learn, are you looking to actually master this? Are you literally just taking a cliff notes approach to, to funnel build you cliff notes, approach to marketing, just trying to get as much in your head and, and hopefully some of it sticks. If that's the case, you're going to find that you really are actually hurting yourself, you're hurting your clients.
[02:17] And most importantly, you're taking a very short term approach to having massive success in your life. The whole idea here is, and I learned this years ago from Dan Kennedy, I've seen it in Russell. Uh, I've seen it actually in anybody who's really on top of the game. And it becomes a master is the actually learn for two. What I mean by that is when you start going in and start to learn, the first thing is you've got to learn for yourself and that's where it takes, you have to take the time, you got to, got to put in the reps, you got to find a way of really going through and creating enough experiences to where you actually learn it, where it becomes a part of you are too often these days, people really forget the importance of mastery. Uh, there's so much out there and they just kind of skim across it and they never really focus and masters a trade a skill and whether it's, you know, funnel building and if it's a graphics, if it's copy, if it's video, whatever, it might be a too often we just tried to become a jack of all trades and just kind of get a surface level.
[03:19] The real key to it is first and foremost is mastering something. And then the second part as far as where you're learning for two is can you teach it to somebody else in a simplified way that they can not only understand it but actually implement it? Uh, so this morning my son Chandler is working right now on a super cool project with that. Steve Larsen and I'll, I'll let Chandler talk about it later. Um, but what he's been doing is he's been going through Steven's offer mind and he goes, dad, you know, I've gone through this thing like two or three times and every time I keep learning more stuff and yet I still feel like I don't know it well enough to actually go out and teach it. And I said, so what do you, what are you doing? And so he's literally taking the time, he's got a huge notepad out, he's got markers out.
[04:07] He's, he's trying to actually learn it for himself, but then find it in a way where he can actually teach it and teach it, not just surface level teaching, but teach it as if the content actually had become his own. I think that's one of the main things I want to make sure as you start taking a look at the skill sets that you're developing and the things that you're building on, are you, are you living just going through business and he's just trying to get as a surface level jack of all trades type of things so you can talk surface level about this or you really going in to the point where you've developed a skill. It's one of the things I've loved working with Russell is it right now he has five different presentations that he's got to create for funnel hacking live and literally the late nights of trying to make sure that every word is placed in the pictures and the images and everything is done in a way that people can not only understand it, but hopefully they not only understand it, but they can take what Russell taught to them and then actually teach it to somebody else.
[05:05] That whole transfer of education, that transfer of content, that transfer of knowledge and skill. That's one of the main things that most people are forgetting these days and it's where I see a lot of people getting frustrated in their funnel building because they never really learn it to a point where they, it becomes a part of them. Mastery is a skill and it's one of those things that people have kind of put to the wayside because it takes time. You've got to put in your 10,000 hours, you've got to put in the Reps. If you're not willing to put in, those reps are not willing to put in the time. You typically get frustrated longterm. It's kind of like a tree is this tree grows and if the roots aren't strong enough, as soon as the wind blows, man, that's, that tree just gets knocked over and people are like, gosh, it's really kind of sad that he wasn't strong enough.
[05:48] It's because the roots were never strong enough. They weren't deep enough and the way you get deep roots is by mastering a skill. That's one of the things we've taken a look at right now with funnel Rolodex. The whole idea and what you're in here, Russell, talked about funnel hacking live is this concept of who, not how. I've done a couple different podcasts on it. It's a principle that I'm such a huge strong believer in, and that is stop focusing on how to do absolutely everything. Pick one or two skills and master that and then find out who is the right person who has done the exact same thing for the other pieces that you need in your business. So as you start taking a look at growing your business, first and foremost, find out what is the one skill that you want to learn.
[06:25] You want to master. And when you do it, make sure that you're learning for too, I mean you learn it for yourself and then learn it most importantly in a way that you can teach it so simply to somebody else that they can then turn around and actually implement what you taught. Once you've done that, that's when you know you've got that skill. So again, make sure that you're learning for two people yourself and for somebody else. Make sure you're taking the time to master something and stop trying to be a jack of all trades. Have an amazing day and we'll talk to you guys soon. Okay.
