Today, I’m going to encourage you to simultaneously do LESS AND MORE.
Let’s debunk this paradox:
Some generally accepted truths:
1. Everything has an opportunity cost.
2. You’re given 24 hours in a day (ignoring time dilation).
The wrong questions:
1. Should I do less?
2. Should I do more?
The right questions:
1. How is my time being spent?
2. How should that time be best utilized?
3. How do I become more deliberate with my time?
1. Identify your goal. Adjust as needed.
2. Become relentlessly OBSESSED with meeting that goal.
3. Manage your priorities. Cut tasks that are not urgent/important immediately. Set strict boundaries with these tasks! They’re holding you back.
4. Identify and execute on the most high-value tasks for your targeted goal, TODAY. Not tomorrow or 2 years from now.
5. Do MORE of what is high value and LESS (not at all) what is low value.
1. You get where you’re going, quickly!
2. Fulfilling work and reaching goals is a tremendous energy boost! It snowballs, and you continuously accomplish more.
3. Results > being busy. Being busy for the sake of being busy or checking off a list gets you nowhere.
The final takeaway:
Simultaneously do less and more.
