a multi-part comedy series, which received many awards. According to Forbes
magazine, the income level of Seinfeld reached a maximum in 1998 and was equal
to $ 267 million. 10 years later in 2008, Seinfeld earned a profit of around
sum of $ 85 million.
However, most of all
in the career of Seinfeld, are not impressions, not earnings or success
moments, but an unusual systematic and consistent in everything. Jerry Seinfeld
constantly applies the methods that most of us would like to bring to our daily
What strategy does Jerry Seinfeld follow
in the fight against the desire to postpone for later and how does he manage to
do a good job? What does he do for this every day, what other people do
not want to do?
There is no exact
information about all his strategies, but recently in a magazine article one

strategy of Seinfeld”
Brad Isaac was a
young comedian who began his career in the comic genre. One night he was
at the club where Jerry Seinfeld performed. In his interview, Isaac told
what happened when he came up after speaking to Seinfeld and asked for advice
to a budding comedian. Here is how Isaac describes it: “He said that
in order to become the best humorist, you need to invent the best jokes, and in
order to come up with the best jokes, you need to write every day.
He told me to take a large wall calendar
on which the whole year is placed on one page, and then hang it on a prominent
place on the wall. Next, you need to take a large red marker. He said
that you need to mark with a red marker only those days when the task was done
to write texts.
In a few days you will have a certain
chain. Continue to celebrate the days, and the chain of accomplishments
will grow. The main thing is not to break it and regularly write texts
every day. ”
As you can see, Seinfeld
did not say a word about the results. It does not matter whether he has
motivation or not. It does not matter whether he writes good jokes or
not. It does not matter if it’s what it works on, whether it’s in the show
or not. The main thing that matters is “do not break the
chain”. And this is one of the simple secrets of the extraordinary
productivity and concentration in the work of Seinfeld.
How to stop procrastinating?
Leaders in their field – athletes,
musicians, leaders, artists – they are all more consistent in their work than
their competitors. They work productively and stand out among others,
while all the others get stuck in the routine of everyday affairs and cannot
win in the constant struggle between motivation and the desire to put
everything back for later.
While most people lose motivation and
“go off the track” after an unsuccessful game, a bad workout, or just
an unsuccessful working day, the leaders will engage in the usual business the
day after the failure.
The strategy of Seinfeld
works precisely because it helps to divert attention from each individual
action and focus on the process as a whole. It’s not about how you feel
that you were inspired or how you worked perfectly on some day. The most
important thing is not to break the chain. The most important thing that
you need to do if you want to follow this strategy is hang the calendar in a
prominent place and start building your chain.
