This morning I was thinking about my constant effort to improve my productivity and energy management. The world is fighting against people that want to be productive, smart, efficient and ambitious. You have to always be on your toes and proactively plan your life so life doesn’t take control of you. This post (like so many others) was written partially as a reminder to myself about the bad habits of the past that have killed my goals in life. I hope it opens your eyes and helps guide you towards the light of happiness.Read More
The path towards success can be boring. Once you get intently focused on doing something, you start ignoring a lot of the distractions around you. You become less interested in things that waste your time and your energy. Friends might call you on a whim to go do something fun and you’ll end up turning them down because that time was already planned. You have a workout planned. Or you are going to be finishing up the last chapter of your book. Or you were going to be spending quality time with your family.
Focus on these and eliminate anything activity in your life that is not in line with this list. Let other plop themselves in front of the TV. Let everybody go out and get drunk. It may seem like your life is boring. But boring is another word for someone who is damned focused and won’t let anything get in his/her way.
Print this (or something like this) and tape it to your bathroom mirror, your refrigerator, your monitor and your nightstand.Read More
Good morning/afternoon/evening high achievers. I am sure you have heard me talk about being hyper-aware of your time. Here is something I want you to be aware of as you get more focused on your perfect day.
There are places on the internet specifically created to keep your attention and waste your time. These places are filled with funny pictures and lists, and are saturated with ads. The long they keep you on the website, the better the chance of you clicking on an ad. Some of these sites are Buzzfeed, TMZ, Upworthy, etc.
If you desire to live at a higher level you need to become disciplined in three areas of your life: Attention management, energy management and time management.
