IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
What we are doing today, how we master the present day and how good we are in living each day, is the key to master your weeks, months, years and your entire life.
We start our days accidentally and go spiraling downward, on most days. The first few decisions that are made creates or destroys the momentum and the trajectory the day is going to take.
Most people keep planning, visualizing and imagining their future life as if they are watching some other person live it. That person is you. If you intentionally live each day, perfecting and maximising your vision of the future, instead of killing time or just living a bread and butter, day-to-day existence, you steer your life towards the direction you want.
We need to act like the person we wish to become, as we are what we do all day.
"A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have."
Fear to take action can hamper your productivity and pure courage is required to:
Confront your fear and do what terrifies you, stepping out of the comfort zone, eventually leading a different life altogether.
Your being positive and active should have an impact on your network, both qualitatively and quantitatively. Your network becomes your net worth when you consciously leverage it.
Be bold And passionate and live each day as your finest. You cannot afford to live passively, pay your bills and die.

Decisions are a cost-benefit analysis of risking something small for the opportunity to gain something big.
Trade-offs are not something as simple as flipping a coin. Our values guide us towards what we want in life, and it is not the same for all. Example: Buying a house has a trade-off of mortgage for the next ten or more years. This is subjective and depends on what we value in life.

One of the many reasons we feel so overwhelmed is because we say yes to far too many things. It leaves you in a difficult place of committing to something you didn't want in the first place.
