From the Publisher
This book isn’t a four-step plan to greatness or a foolproof “do the most stuff” guide.
The concepts here are about creating a daily lifestyle and attitude that is manageable and brings you joy. Goals are about getting results—yes—but working toward your goals is the best part of this process. If we are lucky, we will get to continue to work toward things that are important to us.
This book is a guide to creating room in your days, dreaming bigger, and making progress toward your goals.
Try this: Set a timer
There are some reoccurring activities in your days that just need to be cranked out. They may be never-ending tasks (like pulling weeds in the garden or sorting through paperwork), or they may be those things you don’t enjoy but are mindless (like cleaning the bathroom or organizing a workspace) that you lack motivation to tackle.
Try this trick for the stuff that feels like it takes longer than it actually does or the stuff on your list you dread doing: Turn on some music or a podcast, set a timer, then GO! How much can you get done in ten minutes when you are singularly focused? How much can you get through in twenty minutes?
Try this: Start an accountability group
You don’t have to tell a bunch of strangers what you are working on (and of course some projects will demand a bit more secrecy), but it may help to tell a small group. Consider starting an “accountability group” with friends or colleagues. Find four to six people, and commit to meeting once a month in real life or via video chat to share what you’re working on.
Commit to this group. Commit to sharing honestly and keeping the meetings short and on track. Commit to being held accountable and holding the others who show up accountable. Tremendous work can come from this group.
