You are measured by your output and results, not input or intention.
Where focused effort bears fruit, scattered dabbling brews regret.
The importance of placing yourself in a dynamic, positive, and competitive environment.
The importance of shutting out the noise, or whatever that distracts you from reaching your objectives.
It’s hard, so practise: speak less, but create more impact.
You learn more from listening than talking. So shut up and pay attention.
Given a choice, a blank slate, what would your typical day be like?
What is the ONE thing, that trumps all others in importance, in making your life meaningful and fulfilling?
Tough with courtesy. Calm with authority. Sharp with clarity.
Defend your interests, or even mistakes, like you are fighting for the survival of the humankind. Bad advice in the moral realm, important rule in the real world.
On big, important life decisions, take the time to think through your priorities. Once decision made, you go all in like a missile launched, never looking back until the mission accomplished.
On small projects along the path towards your goal, though, it’s the day 1 mindset that celebrates experiments and failures.
At the minimum: be connected, be productive, be mindful.
Hit the points. Fix the key pains. Quick.
Economic value creation, at the core of your daily activities.
What unique contribution are you making to the world EVERYDAY?
What makes you proud? What are you doing everyday that makes your existence a blessing to the rest of the world?
The answer lies in the motion of the journey. Every second presents a new angle and perspective, while the stillness depicted in the oil paintings fades deeper into history.
