Strategies for setting realistic goals
The importance of self-compassion and self-care
Most goals are out of our control. Our focus should be on systems rather than goals. In a system (repeatable process), your focus is on all the parts that you do control.
Reward effort instead of achievement: small gains compound over time.
When you focus on developing systems and work every day, your work compounds over time, developing exponential growth.
The more advantages you create, the more your next advantages pay off. A 1% gain every day compounds to almost 38x increase over a year.
Focus on the output, rather than the input.
If you want to achieve something, you need to commit to a certain output, like publishing a post on your blog weekly. At the end of the day, a system is a way to control how to achieve an output.
“80% of the output or results will come from 20% of the input or action.”
Use the 80/20 rule to constantly question yourself if your focus, time, or money is on the things that generate the majority of the results:
Once you figure out what’s exactly working, double down.
Our working memory, alertness, and concentration gradually improve a couple of hours after waking up, peaking at about mid-morning.
Take advantage of this state by scheduling your most important work for this period. Focus on performing Deep Work, meaning you get to work free of distraction for a long period of time.
Distractions can be divided into three major groups: physical (i.e. possessions), intangible (i.e. technology), and people.
Anything that interrupts your work when you are in Deep Work state and/or doesn’t contribute to the life you want to build classifies as a distraction. Minimize distractions in your daily life in order to make progress in meaningful work.
Be aware of your distractions. Once you have nailed that down, move on to removing them. Quit these bad habits by adding friction.
Use technology to automate repetitive tasks. Start by listing down all the tasks that you have to do recurrently every week. Then find ways to automate them, either by using apps or building your own system. More automation means more time to focus on creative and productive work.
Question everything: do I think this way because it’s my opinion/other people say so/it’s how the world works or because I’ve tested it?
Test, test, test, and find what works specifically for you. Growth comes from hard work and a little luck. Hyper-growth comes from testing.
By focusing on what you do best and delegating the rest, you optimize your productivity.
To delegate efficiently, make sure you choose the right person for the job. Be very specific about the finished product (the output) and provide clear step-by-step instructions on how to complete the task.
Invest in trading your money for time when the time it takes you to complete a task is more expensive than paying someone.
When you’re behind, go home early. Take some time to rest and come back energized the next day. Sometimes our brain solves the problems for us on its own. Embrace the struggle.

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.
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.
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.
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!
