Save what inspires you
You don't know when death will come, so live with urgency to usher your ideas and dreams into reality.
Get clear on precisely what you want, then move past any doubts or fears through massive, urgent action.
Find a place and schedule in which you will not be disturbed. Concentration and focus must be trained. Having a special time and space to do focused work, will train your brain to do it better.
To maximize productivity, prepare for deep work with deep breathing and visualizing your desired end state. Also, chunk work into 45-minute blocks and do some movement and yoga between those deep work sets.
If you try to do all you can you will be overwhelmed and feel guilty for not giving adequate focus to anything.
Remove everything from your life that’s unnecessary to be left with worthwhile things to pursue. Also, have a top-priority item to accomplish and don't move to another until you check it off.
When you find something you love, focus comes naturally.
It doesn’t have to be work related, but you do need something you’re passionate about to give more meaning to your life and even to compensate discontent in other areas of your life.
Be fully present at what you doing, else you’ll find yourself at home thinking about work, and at work thinking about home.
Multitasking hurts your performance in all involved tasks, so schedule things in a way that you don’t have to do it.
To build something special, incentivize all involved to develop fierce focus. This is the only way to avoid the trap of caving into the norm and losing the essence of your core difference.
Fierce focus is only achieved when all involved understand their purpose and set clearly defined, measurable goals to achieve.
