Self Improvement

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Turn envy into curiosity

This will help you to take action instead of feeling sorry for yourself. So the next time you see someone do something you want to do, either:

  • Reverse engineer what they’ve done
  • Seek them out and ask them how they did it.
The labels you put on yourself

They shape your actions. If you think of yourself as lazy or weak, you act in accordance with that label.

Instead of placing labels on yourself, try making statements indicating you’re in the process of improving. Change “I am” to “I’m working on it.”

Carol Dweck
like to think of our champions and idols as superheroes who were born different from us. We don’t like to think of them as relatively ordinary people who made themselves extraordin
Make success chase you

Focus on becoming the best version of yourself, and success will follow:

  • Focus on creating a great product instead of the number of people who will buy it.
  • Focus on writing great blog posts instead of the number of people who will read them.
  • Focus on learning as much as possible instead of seeking worthless credentials.
Finding your tribe

Your goal should be to find your tribe and build a following of dedicated people who support your higher vision.

Find 300 Spartans instead of building a giant army.

Narrow your focus

Self-awareness leads to prosperity. Find out who you are to figure out what you want.

Marcus Aurelius
ition means tying your well-being to what other people say or do. Self-indulgence means tying it to the things that happen to you. Sanity means tying it to your own actio
Fear as motivation

Fear provides the motivation you need to succeed if you use it the right way. 

You can't get rid of fear so point it in a direction that helps you.

Focus on short bursts of productivity

Set aside short blocks of time for focused and productive work. To make the most out of it:

  • Don’t multi-task.
  • Get rid of distractions.
  • Commit to a realistic time frame you can follow through (concentrated work + breaks).
Value experience over credentials

If you feel unqualified for the path you're walking on, keep in mind that expertise comes from knowledge and experience — not from a piece of paper. 

Being viewed as an expert comes from knowing what you’re talking about and earning people’s respect.

You're not wasting time

Even if you make a bad choice, you still gain:

  • Experience: Even if you spend years in a career you weren’t suited for, you’ve gained useful skills along the way.
  • Connection: Treat every person you meet as having something valuable to offer. 
  • Feedback: When things don’t work out your way on your initial attempt, you’ll have a better idea of what to do next time.
Treat safety as negative

Seek to become antifragile by introducing volatility into your life. Structure your life in a way that benefits from uncertainty. The most adaptable species are the ones who survive — not necessarily the strongest.

’t look at experts and influencers in a state of awe — vow to take their spot. They aren’t special. They’re just normal human beings who had the audacity to believe there’s more to life than living a mediocre existe

The silver bullet is that you need to put in the work everyday for years.

It’s not some Facebook ads hack. Or some magical $2000 conference.

But no matter how many times people tell you that, you’re still going to dig around for the secret answer.

IDEAS

  • Courage is in choosing to work less because we are confident in our own productivity time, even if that means having a 5-hour workday.
  • It is having a difficult conversation with someone at work.
Peter Drucker's Strategy 

... to become more effective:

  • Know your time: if you want to manage your time better, you have to know where it goes first.
  • Identify the non-productive work: activities that have ZERO return, with no importance if you stopped doing them.
  • Eliminate the trivial, time-wasting tasks.
