High performing people are highly focused, and that leads to success. That success produces options and opportunities.
But if you are not careful, it can undermine the things that led to success in the first place. You fall into the undisciplined quest for more. Now you’re doing too many things, and while they may all be good things, it’s just too many different things. So you start to plateau in your progress or fail.
Just because someone is busier than you doesn't mean that they are more important.
Instead, only do what's essential. Ask yourself what your mission is? What did you come to do? Once you've identified what's essential, you won't fear FOMO. You'll start enjoying JOMO.
Take the time to explore and figure out the contribution you can make. Then go big in it.
If you don't know what you're good at, use inversion. List all the things you don't like to do. Ask what you're passionate about or what you'd be interested in learning how to do.
For example, if you want to be a writer, your first article doesn't have to be great. Just start by publishing it and then receive feedback. You can always go back and improve your article.
List all your tasks of importance on a scale from 0-100. Then question or eliminate anything that's under a 90.
When you do tasks below 90, you inevitably have to make a trade-off.
You have to ignore internal and external voices that want you to prioritise the nonessential.
Not every goal is necessarily worthwhile. However, serving others is a great and essential task. When we step out to serve somebody else, the non-essential stuff will disappear.
Admit mistakes. It can be difficult to admit to yourself that you were wrong, but it is an important first step.
Discipline leads to success. You don't become successful, and then you become disciplined. When you become disciplined, success will follow.
Take a 10-minute nap every day. Most people are sleep deprived. The brain goes down and, as a result, can't figure out the important from the unimportant.
What was important yesterday, may not be important today.
Without asking those questions, the stuff on your to-do list could be entirely wrong.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
