Key Ideas

Get Curious

Try asking yourself:

  • How would I like each day to unfold?
  • What would I like to focus my energy on?
  • What brings me joy?
  • What state of mind would I like to be in while I work?
  • What other aspects of my life do I wish to be paying more attention to?
  • By the end of my life, what kind of person do I wish to be?

Follow Your Inspiration

Follow our life’s energy instead of opposing, fighting, or suppressing it.

Make decisions that aren’t motivated by a desire for achievement, but to do work you find truly meaningful and that makes you feel alive.

Be There

No matter what meaning you ascribe to your work—whether it is a job, a career or a calling, by focusing on being fully present to it you can better connect to your own vitality within the experience.

Shine On

You simply need to be present and allow yourself to experience what is most alive for you, what decisions you make relative to it, and how you take action. 

Working in this way, you can find success and fulfillment within yourself.

Fear of standing out

Our greatest fear is not that we are not special enough; our greatest fear is that we are too special. It is our brilliance, not our deficiencies that often frighten us most.

Fear of not being good enough yet

There will never be a perfect time to pursue your dreams and goals.

You’re growing every day. You just have to find a way of living with uncertainty and learn to feel your way through life, letting your intuition guide you.

Fear life’s daily storms

Sometimes life gets so hard that you don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. But sometimes life is beautiful.

Realize that fear is the worst of it; fear is your real enemy. So get up, get out in the stormy weather of the real world, and kick fear as hard as you can.

First words to learn

In English, just 300 words make up 65% of all written material. We use those words a lot, and that’s the case in every other language as well.

Learn cognates

Cognates are “true friends” of words you recognize from your native language that mean the same thing in another language.

For instance:

  •  Words like Action, nation, precipitation, solution, frustration, and thousands of other -tion words are spelled exactly the same in French, and you can quickly get used to the different pronunciation. Change that -tion to a -ción and you have the same words in Spanish. Italian is -zione and Portuguese is -ção.
  • Many languages also have words that share a common (Greek/Latin or other) root.
  • Even languages as different as Japanese can have heaps of very familiar vocabulary. 

Interact in your language daily

  • To hear the language consistently spoken, you can check out TuneIn.com for a vast selection of live-streamed radio from your country of choice. 
  • To watch the language consistently, see what’s trending on Youtube in that country right now. 
  • To read the language consistently, you can find cool blogs and other popular sites on Alexa’s ranking of top sites per country.

Focus on Systems Instead of Goals

Focus on Systems Instead of Goals

Most goals are out of our control. We have limited control to reach them. In a system, your focus is on all the parts that you do control. And system is a fancy word for “repeatable process”...

Leverage the Compound Effect

When you focus on developing systems and work every day, your work compounds over time, developing exponential growth. 

The more advantages you create, the more your next advantages pay off. A 1% gain every day compounds to almost 38x increase over a year.

Measure Output, Not Input

Systems are the best way to progress since they reward effort and we control all the variables. However, we need to have a sense of direction in those efforts, to know what we are trying to accomplish

Writing daily with no objective is just practice. If you want to achieve something, you need to commit to a certain output, like publishing a post on your blog weekly. At the end of the day, a system is a way to control how to achieve an output.
