Stop Using The Number 7

Whenever you don’t know if you should say no to something, simply rate it on a scale from 1 to 10. However, there’s one condition: You can’t use the number 7. If you rate something a 7, there’s a good chance you’ll feel obligated to say yes to it when you shouldn’t.

Don’t be scared to have an opinion. Stop playing it safe. Make a decision.

Sivers tells a short story about a donkey in his book 'Tools of Titans' who is both equally hungry and thirsty. Fortunately, there’s a stack of hay a few feet away from him on his left side and a pail of water a few feet away on his right side. Because the hay and water are equally as far, the donkey can’t decide whether he should eat or drink first. Paralyzed by indecision, the donkey eventually falls over and dies from both hunger and hunger.

Try to focus on things one by one with determination

Success is never achieved by the person who does the most things every day. Instead, success is always achieved by the person who does what is most important every day.

Whenever you make a to do list, don’t make your to-do list in random order. Instead, take a few extra minutes to list everything on your to-do list in order of priority and then focus on only doing the 3 most important things on your list.

"Whining is the first step toward change. It’s the moment when you realize something is very wrong and that you have to take the initiative to do something about it… People who don’t whine are punching bags. They just go about their days, their jobs, their lives, knowing there is nothing they can do to change a darn thing, so why say a word? They see no reason to whine because they know they are incapable of effecting change. Call me a whiner any day.”

Every single day, you make thousands of decisions: Should I hit the snooze button or not? What time should I leave for work? Should I exercise today? and the list goes on and on.

This lead to mental fatique of making decisions called Decision fatique. Which reduces the tendency to make decision in future. You have to learn to reduce the number of decisions you make on a daily basis either by automating them or delegating them.

When you ask someone for their ‘advice,’ this puts the other person in a togetherness state of mind, which helps increase the other person’s desire to support whatever you’re asking them for advice on.

Asking for their opinion, on the other hand, puts the other person in an introspection state of mind, which makes them focus more on themself and not on you.

So whenever you’re seeking input from your customers, peers, or even your boss, it’s worth asking them for their “advice.”

Essentially, chefs don’t start cooking until everything is, literally, in its place: their instruments and spices are organized, everything is clean, their ingredients are pre-chopped, their ingredients are pre-measured, etc.

Mise en place helps chefs reduce the friction they experience in the kitchen. As a result, chefs are able to cook better meals with far less effort. You can reduce the friction of your positive habits that will help that life changing habit build in your life effortlessly.

If you ever feel like you’re experiencing creative roadblocks in your work or that you’re feeling burnt out, it’s probably time to take a sabbatical.

What’s a sabbatical? Sabbaticals are mini-vacations from your work, which are meant to act as a detox from your daily routine so that you can recharge and get back to work better than before.

Taking a sabbatical, whether it’s for a week, a day, or even just a few hours, is a great way to cultivate new ideas and to avoid burnout in your work.

These are 5 tools my multi-millionaire CEO uses to stay productive. But....

My CEO works non stop, from 7am to 10pm, he’s extreme. His only priorities in life are work and family, and he’s told me he sometimes regrets that he lost touch with a few of his good friends.

My point here is:

one, this lifestyle is not for everybody. And

two, you won’t become a successful CEO just because you start using those tools.

This is inspirational advice only; remember to adapt this type of content to your own reality.

Almost all writing is influenced by other people’s work

Even if some writers avoid reading when they’re writing a book because they’re afraid of being influenced by other people’s work, finding your unique voice is most times the result of borrowing ingredients from other people and coming up with your recipes.

"You could help direct the world, on its careening trajectory, a bit more toward heaven and a bit more away from Hell. Once having understood Hell, researched it, so to speak–particularly your own individual Hell–you could decide against going there or creating that. You could aim elsewhere. You could, in fact, devote your life to this. That would give you a Meaning, with a capital M."
