Balance is a myth. There are only trade-offs. Having balance at my age is a function of lacking it at your age. Your call.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Be a warrior not worrier

Be a warrior. Before you resort to violence, make a thoughtful assessment.

Register the intention behind people’s gestures, ideas, and words. Don’t make a caricature of people’s actions and speech so you can draw your sword and feel righteous.

Be a highly skilled, devastatingly strong warrior who exerts their power by example and leaves their weapon in its sheath.

Forgiveness is strength. Demonstrate it, every day. Be a warrior, not a wokester.

Give yourself space and observe

Embrace a degree of stoicism for the first 24 to 36 months after graduation.

I enjoy alcohol and THC, and used them every day in college. But I took 24 months (mostly) off both as I knew I needed to be in great shape physically and mentally.

Whether it’s shopping, gaming, swiping, posting, eating, porn, streaming, or ESPN, take as much of this energy and time for the next couple years and reallocate that human capital to three things: work, relationships, and fitness.

Work both Mentally and Physically

Be mentally and physically … warriors. Lift heavy weights and run long distances, in the gym and in your mind.

Many tasks you’ll be asked to perform early in your career will be tedious.

Don’t do what you are asked to do, but what you are capable of doing. Think of it as boot camp before being sent to battle, as there are millions of other warriors fighting to win the same regions of prosperity. Get strong, really strong.

You should be able to walk into a room and believe you could overpower, outrun, or outlast every person in the room.

How employees perceive leaders

Recent surveys have shown that employees can be grouped in two main categories, according to their perception of a new leader:

  • Warriors: they evaluate your knowledge, know-how and if you are really able to help them
  • Worriers: they focus on the leadership approach that the new leader has designed for the company.

When taking over a management position, planning your transition as well as paying attention to the way you behave with the others are aspects that need to be taken into account.

Get Up Early

Getting up early is one of the most fundamental parts of building and compounding success habits in your life!

Getting up early-could be anywhere between 4:30 to even 6:00 am, depending on your current waking time to give yourself 1 or 2 hours in the morning before you start your regular work.

Move your wake-up (and get-up) time back 30 minutes a week until you have the 1-2 hours in the morning.

An Unexpected Ending -> A New Beginning

When we see that our plans, relationships or assets have been swept away by some crisis, we normally feel worried, overwhelmed, disappointed and even go into depression.

When we attach ourselves to things, ideals, fantasies and other people's expectations, we are bound to feel like it’s the end of the world when disaster strikes.
