Playing Long-Term

Some distractions are more difficult to spot because they look a lot like work. Email is one of them. Nobody cares if you achieve inbox zero.

If a task doesn't contribute to your vision, then it's a distraction. Only work on tasks that accomplish something.

You will always have thousands of tasks demanding your time and attention. Prioritize the tasks that will help you progress towards your vision and goals.

It consists of thinking long and hard about your life and work. Write down everything that is on your mind, then consider what is most important.

Money is not wealth. Money is a freedom currency. Use it to create wealth, not more money. If you do that, more money will come.

Deadlines are the latest time by which something needs to be completed. 

Evaluate your sleep, nutrition and exercise.

A personal mission statement reminds you where you're coming from and puts your life in perspective. When you feel frustrated, you can go back and read how much you've progressed over a specific time.

Set up rules of engagement to remind you of how you should take care of yourself, your body, and your work. They serve as reminders of what you are doing wrong and how to slowly correct things.

Progress can sometimes feel like endless staircases where you climb and climb, but can never see the end.

Work on the right things, even if you are doing it imperfectly. As long as you are working on the right things, your skill and knowledge will compound, and one day the output will become better.

Look at everything you do from big projects to small tasks and remove anything that doesn't add value. Outsource projects or drop them altogether. Unsubscribe from email newsletters.
