What To Focus On

To focus you need to eliminate the distractions, commit to one thing and become great at it.

To know what to focus on, try different things for some time until something comes easily and you can master the core fundamentals of the task. This way you can get a sense of what fits you and set yourself up for success by focusing on what works best.

Volume Of Work And Simplification

Once you have experimented enough and overcome the need for extra information and fear of committing, it's time to put in a consistent volume of work and persist through the grind.

IDEAS

True productivity is putting the right things on your to-do list, exclusively answering emails that matter, and only taking meetings that will propel you forwards. 

It’s less about “how” and more about “what”. When you’re focused on unimportant objectives, you feel painfully stuck. It’s like trudging along on a treadmill; sure, you’re running, but you’re not actually getting anywhere. On the contrary, when you’ve had a deeply productive day, you’ll know it.

The basics to succeed in the gym:
  1. Commit to the long-term process.
  2. Don't treat exercise as something to do when it's convenient. 
  3. Great results come from great focus, not a great variety.
  4. Start light and train for volume before intensity.
  5.  Make SLOW progress each week.
  6. Record your workouts. What gets measured, gets managed.
