Key Ideas

Blaming Others

Take responsibility for your own life, for how and where you are right now and find the right tools to change your situation.

You have the agency to change things, and no one can stop you from your own personal success.

Neglecting Your Health

This mistake has a lot of implications on all the other areas of your life. 

Take the time to build healthy habits. If you’re running on empty calories and coffee, you’re not going to make the best decisions for your future.

Staying in Your Comfort Zone

Choose to step outside of it, because you are not going to reach your goals if you are not walking out in the unknown.

Find the courage to look foolish, encounter awkward situations, or find unexpectedly challenging circumstances waiting.

It’s one thing to have a vague mental roadmap of where you’d like to be in the long term. It’s another thing entirely to write down specific, measurable, actionable goals you can start working toward right now.

We limit ourselves, and we impede our ability to make big things happen when we buy into what society says will work or not work.

We must take a leap, take calculated risks, and be patient for the results. We don’t need to have everything worked out beforehand.

Begin with the End in Mind

Start with a clear destination to determine your steps. Identify your values and live by them.

  • Visualize in detail your own funeral. What are they saying about how you lived your life, and your relationships? What do you want them to say? Change your priorities accordingly.
  • Break down different roles in your life - whether professional, personal or in a community. List 3-5 goals you want to achieve for each. 
  • Define what scares you and write down exactly how you'll handle it.
Go after your goals

Prioritize your day-to-day actions based on what is most important, not what is most urgent.

Be disciplined to follow these actions regardless of how you feel at any given moment. Maintain a primary focus on relationships and results, and a secondary focus on time.
