Three mindsets to make your life better:
MORE IDEAS FROM THE BOOK
An agile life is one that can easily respond to change. Where you’re not overly constrained by rigid planning, but can rather adapt and get things done in a way that fits your goals and the constant randomness of life.
Focus on 3 goals for the day, week, month, year. Make them feed up from one to the next, and work them down when setting new ones. So the day goals fit the week goals, etc. Adjust as necessary.
Carve out a chunk of your life force for making improvements and leading the life you want to live.
The more you get in the habit of making time for what’s most important, the more you’ll get great results.
The Top five productivity pitfalls are:
If you have motivation without technique, you’re just a motivated idiot. If you have great technique, but no motivation, you won’t accomplish anything. But if you have motivation and technique, you can produce great results.
Time management is less important than energy management. Spend your best energy on your most important work, and everything else will follow.
The key isn’t to have some huge long term plan but to rather know the next vital few things you need to do to hit the goal you want to accomplish.
Know what you care about most, your “hot spots” in personal life and work life. Prioritize those over everything else, see how your time fits into those hot spots.
If you don’t set maximums and minimums on how you apply time to different areas, someone will for you. Put a maximum on career, a minimum on personal. If you’re not driving your day and time, then someone else will.
When you fix your time, you’ll have more energy and sprint better. With an end in sight, we can push ourselves, when work is endless it becomes much harder to put in our best effort.
We all have our ideas about happiness and how to achieve happiness.
The main question is: Is it short term happiness? Or is it long term fulfillment?
Of course, we can enjoy the finer things in life, however, we should not forget long term happiness and fulfillment.
We will discuss what real happiness meant to the Stoics and how they were able to lead fulfilling lives and achieve long term happiness.
