Problem Solving

Woody Allen
“Eighty percent of success is showing up.”
Don’t Resist

When everything is going right, you’re going with the flow. When everything is not going right, you’re trying to go against it.

So instead of feeling frustrated, choose to take it easy. Have that ice cream. Sleep in. Don’t work out.  Eventually, you’ll want to get back to your productive routines.

Recreate The Past

Think of a moment you were in a powerful state of mind. A time when everything went well. Try to be very specific and to remember everything in detail.

You have the power to control your mind. If you do that several times a day, you will notice that you start feeling that way again.

Focus On Effort, Not Results

Winning is a habit. And you win by focusing on your effort.

It's easy to focus on results when you're in a rut. For example, maybe you gained some weight during a vacation. To get back on track, focus on your effort. The results will follow.

Plan Your Days Meticulously

When you plan your days, you know what you have to do:

  1. Look at your goals (if you don’t have goals, consider making a list)
  2. Think about what daily activities you have to do to achieve them
  3. Schedule those activities on your calendar
  4. Also schedule time for family, friends, relaxation, reading, etc.

Hidden contradictions of life advice

In practice, adding too many suggestions for living well will create a conflict with each other. 

Suggestions are almost always given on their own, without including a wider context. You can read about why exercise, reading or meditating are good on their own, but rarely find information about how they trade-off against each other.

Doing something is better than saying you’re going to do something. No one can argue with that.  🏅
Our fears drive us

We say we have no time, but we really fear getting started or making a mistake.

Face your fears first. If it is important, do it. If it is unpleasant, do it now. You'll find that it was not so scary after all.
