Getting done

Getting done

Life is about moving and getting things done. We live in a giant rock with water and dirt, and we walk around like bags of meat and bone. What is really life about?

Leaving a legacy behind. Being remembered. But to achieve this we must work, work , work.

For that reason, don't postpone something just because the timing isn't right, if it is important to you and you want to do it eventually just go it and correct the course along the way of any obstacles if you find.

Get good a troublemaking and then apologizing

Understand that if something you want do doesn't devastate those around you, TRY IT and THEN justify it!

People, in order to look after you, will deny you things on an emotional base. So just do it.

THE ART OF DISCOMFORT

When faced with a discomfort situation:

  • Define your nightmare, the absolute worst that could happen if you did what you are considering.
  • What steps can you take to repair the damage, after you took action.
  • What are the outcomes/benefits of the most probable scenarios?
  • What are you putting off out of fear? (analyze situations)
  • What is costing you by postponing the action or situation?
  • What are you waiting for?

Most things are temporary and if something bad happens it will, probably, be temporary. So if some action has a good outcome for you do it, if the consequences aren't the biggest.

Set your standards

Set your standards

Remember this - The question you should be asking yourself (long term) is not "what do I want" or "what are my goals" but you should ask "what does excite me".

Don't dreamline too low, nothing is too low for what you can achieve while on this planet! And if you don't achieve it so what? Move on!

Small things don't matter

MOST THINGS MAKE NO DIFFERENCE - Be aware of this.

Focus on the important few and ignore the rest (80/20 rule, cut 80% that brings you 20% value)

Limit tasks to the important ones to shorten work time. (80/20)

Interviews, non-practical/non-effective meetings, useless events.

Shorten work time to limit tasks to the important (Parkinson's Law)

Parkinson's Law is the old adage that work expands to fill the time allotted for its completion.

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.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

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.

Laetitia Berton

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!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
