The Art of Achieving Impossible Goals

“Today might seem like any other day, unimportant...but your decisions and consistency on this day 5 years ago decided who you are today...and what you do today decides who you will be in the next 5.”

- Gary Ryan Blair

“It’s Greek to me” is an expression used to describe something that is difficult for someone to understand and thus gain benefit from.

In the case of this message…

We’re going to focus on why it’s challenging if not impossible for people to wrap their minds around the idea that they can indeed 10X their results and transform their lives in just 100 days.

Perhaps another way of saying it is…you’re about to learn why you must Go For Stupid and learn the art of achieving impossible goals. 

Here’s my promise to you…

Once you learn how to turn an impossible goal into inevitable success you’ll realize your unlimited potential and open the door to the life you always dreamed about.


In 1955, British historian and author, Cyril Northcote Parkinson observed the numerous and costly inefficiencies in government bureaucracy and made the following statement:

“Work expands to fill the time available for its completion.”

This statement has come to be known as Parkinson’s Law and your ability to understand and apply it is the key to unlocking an unprecedented breakthrough in your results, health, relationship and your income.

Parkinson’s Law doesn’t apply to just bureaucracies. It applies to everything you want to be, have and do.

The notion is simple:

• If you give yourself a year to do something, it will take a year.

• If you give yourself a month, it will take a month.

• If you give yourself a day, it will take a day.

It’s true… any task, goal or project takes as much time as you allow for it to take…

And strategically applying Parkinson’s Law to your efforts is the fastest and easiest way to cut the unnecessary “behavioral fat” in your activities.

When you give yourself less time to do something, you’re forced to focus only on what will produce your desired result.

The reduced time frame is a “forcing function,” a situational constraint that forces your desired results.

Sadly, that’s a truth the majority never learn and pay dearly for it with the one thing they’ll never be able to get back nor more of — TIME.

Most people spend their lives perpetuating self-limiting beliefs…repeating mistakes…and reinforcing weakness. 

Instead of learning how to fast track their results and live a life of abundance…the majority have by default, relegated themselves to the slow lane and a life of small achievements.

They will pretty much find themselves in the same place in 100 days as they are today.

In fact, most people will be in nearly the same place in 1, 3, and 5 years.

Let’s put an end to that nonsense right now and show you what it takes to GO FOR STUPID!

"Do things that disrupt the way you live and your mind will start to accept and recognize alternatives." - Steve Sims

I’m in the transformation business…and have spent the better part of my professional life teaching people and organizations how to transform their life and turn impossible goals into inevitable success through the use of superior execution strategies.

I’m confident I can do the same for you.

If you’re willing to stick around for a few minutes and keep an open mind…I promise to deliver the things you need to live the extraordinary life you want.



Elon Musk and I have a few things in common.

We share the same birthday…June 28th.

And we both believe in the life changing power of Parkinson’s Law.

In September of 2016…

Elon Musk set Parkinson’s Law in motion when he made an all or nothing $50 million dollar commitment that Tesla could build the world’s biggest battery in 100 days.

He won. With 40 days to spare.

Here’s the backstory…

It all went down in South Australia…

An apocalyptic storm — involving 80,000 lightning strikes and at least two tornadoes — knocked down dozens of electricity pylons, causing cascading failures throughout the regional electricity grid and thrusting virtually the entire state of 1.7 million residents into darkness.

A fierce debate soon emerged over how to manage the grid…and Musk, ever the opportunist, inserted himself into the conversation, saying on Twitter that he could deliver 100 megawatts of storage in 100 days or it would be free.

Australian billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes took to Twitter to ask if he was serious.

Musk replied:

“Tesla will get the system installed and working 100 days from contract signature or it is free. That serious enough for you?”

Soon after, the South Australian government unveiled a $550 million energy plan meant to respond to the crisis and stabilize the grid going forward.

Tesla won competitive bidding for the entire energy-storage portion of the project.


The contract was signed on September 29, kicking off a 100 day all or nothing deadline.

On November 23…40 days shy of the deadline, the battery bank was finished.

Musk stepped up to the challenge and delivered.

He later admitted that the cost of losing that bet would have been around $50 million dollars.


If you do something outstanding…something that most people would consider to be impossible, harebrained or just plain stupid…you will be ridiculed until you are revered.

With all that in mind…

What big, bold and crazy ideas are you working on?

And, how much time are you giving yourself to get them across the finish line?

Remember, any task, project or goal takes as much time as you allow for it to take, and by enforcing deadlines and taking massive action…it won’t take much time for you to enjoy victory.

When you go for stupid…something that is 10X bigger than you’ve even done before…you’re out there on a limb challenging yourself.

You begin asking different and better questions, such as…

Why can’t I accomplish my 10 year goal in 100 days?

Is there really anything stopping me…other than myself?

I’m here to tell you that the next 100 Days of your life can very well be the best 100 days of your life.

That’s why I’m calling you out right now…

Stand up, put the phone down, step into the arena and use Parkinson’s Law to 10X in 100 days.

I created the 100 Day Challenge to show you how to…
