How To Make The Most Out Of Your Time And Your Life

Why you can't focus

  • You’re stuck in an unhealthy rut, that teaches your brain to automatically escape hard work instead of working through it.
  • You don’t know how to focus on things you don't like. If you like doing something, you are more likely to do it Reframe the tasks you dislike, to make them come enjoyable.
