About the Book :
Mrs. Pickles is standing next to a plant in her living room. She's holding a watering can and looks to be watering the plant. "What are you doing, Mrs. Pickles?" says a little neighbor girl. "Watering my plants, Gina," replies Mrs. Pickles. "But they're artificial plants," says the little girl with a confused look on her face. "I know, dear," replies Mrs. Pickles. "But it doesn't matter. There's no water in the watering can anyway." You see, Mrs. Pickles is being active. She's doing something. She's working AT watering her plants. But she's not being productive because no plant is actually benefiting from her actions. What about you--is your business benefiting from your actions on a daily basis? Are you being productive? Or just active? Are you working The Business? Or working AT the business? Are you planning your work and working your plan? Or are you just planning your work... and planning your work... and planning your work... and never really getting around to WORKING YOUR PLAN? As I said earlier, not all plans are created equal. The business plan of The Business, for example, is certainly UNEQUAL! Why do I say that? Because the business plan of The Business is designed to create unlimited residual income. Do the work once and get paid over and over again...
