A clue: these are supervaluable to know and follow.  Install these into your life and your head!

The 3 Rules

While you’re at it, add this bit of wisdom to your arsenal against the negative false beliefs that are too often repeated and allowed to exist:

 “If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”

The "One Thing" Technique: To Speed Up Your Progress In LIfe - Hugely!

When one has a major objective (especially when there is urgency or a strong need to achieve it because of its importance) one would best employ the “One Thing” Technique.  [In email, click on the title of this post to see it all.] In this mode we focus every day (or as often as feasible), during a set period of time, to the exclusion of other “interests” or needs, on One Thing, until it is completed

This usually means that there are to be 2-3 hours set aside each day during which you will work on nothing but that objective.  (It could be one hour at the beginning of the day and one later if that is what is needed due to other conflicting schedules.)

Whatever you do in life, please make sure you put this into action in your life!  



So...this means that I have to put my money/efforts where my mouth is.  I need to work on my book starting the first two hours of my productivity day.  After that, I will simply be starting a regular productivity day.  

Let’s say you’re in an awful job and you want a good job with good pay.  What would you do?

Well, you would certainly not just sit around disheartened, resigned to a not so good future…

You’d devote at least the first hour of productivity time every day to researching and figuring out what to do to make that happen AND to getting the results.  Of course, as with everything you’d draw up a plan to be modified as you go as to what to do, so that you are not wandering around randomly.  

(If you want the format for what a learning plan would look like, please contact me.)

When asked what were his top habits leading to his success:

1) First, Seek Great Mentors 🔭

[In email, click on the title to see the whole post...]

I make it a priority to get in touch with people I consider great mentors. I join networking groups or take trips where I can learn from great entrepreneurs and I devour their wisdom and integrate it into my life. Example, this spring I spent 12 days on Richard Branson’s Necker Island as part of mastermind groups with major entrepreneurs and education reformist so we could all learn from each other.
