We all want to achieve certain goals. We want to graduate from college, learn an extra language, learn another instrument, write a book.
In order to achieve these things, we need to take action. But, action taken without a good reason is wasting a huge amount of time. This is high-achievers syndrome - when you believe doing more will help you gain more. It won't.
Anything beyond what you need to do as a minimum to achieve your goal is wasteful.
Extra effort does not continue to give steady growth. As you move closer to perfection, improvement slows down even if you put in more effort. In other words, we can arrive at a point when the extra effort fails to show up in results.
Take weight loss. Imagine you want to lose 100 pounds. You avoid sugar, count calories, and it yields big results at first. You lose two pounds a week. But, subsequent efforts yield smaller and smaller results. You then add more exercise or more research, only to find tiny returns.
When you plateau, doing more won't work. Pushing through the dip by maximising what you're already doing will help you get a tiny bit further.
There are two enemies of execution:
The best place is just above "good enough," where you strive for perfection but accept that it's impossible.

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!
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.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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.
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.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
