Developing Habits

We all have habits ingrained in our lives. Most of our good habits (if any) take us to eventual long-term success, and our bad habits take our time, health, happiness and money. Make a list of what all you do as a habit daily and see which ones are good and which ones are not.

Finding Balance

In our pursuit of perfection, we neglect balance by doing what's urgent over what matters. This can lead to stress, burnout, and feeling drained and lethargic:

Declutter and Simplify

Too much stuff around you means too much to think about, too much to do, leading to chaos.

Dive Deep in Deep Work

Most of us keep doing seemingly urgent work (answering a phone, replying to an email, etc.) but this only gives an illusion of productivity.
