If you want to improve your life, you have to be committed and start from the right foundation.
Ensure that you speak with someone who is ahead of you in at least one dimension of their life, once per week. If you're working on your health, have a conversation with the person who is fit at the gym.
Working towards any goal is the most important thing you can do. The second most important is to read books about how to do it better.
The productivity system is not just about getting more work done - it's about organising all of your goals and efforts.
Writing expands our memory by giving us a buffer to store thoughts before they fade from our memory. Writing also enables self-reflection. When you write down a long series of thoughts and then read it, you simultaneously articulate an idea and critique it.
Having a big project you're always working on helps to keep all the other foundational practices together. A project that will last 1-2 years works best to maximize effort.
Exercise sharpens your mind and improves your mood. It is also entirely under your control.
Set yourself a time for bed and a wake time. Then stick to it. A consistent sleeping schedule allows you to predictably plan all the other things you intend to do.
