Even at the time, I was astounded at my ability to find the words to tell my daughter her baby brother was dying. It felt like the emotional equivalent of the mother who lifts an impossibly heavy object off the child trapped beneath.
Make your routine fit your personality and life. As long as you feel uplifted and fulfilled it doesn’t matter how long it is. The key is to keep going even if you don’t feel like it.
Five minutes becomes ten and ten becomes fifteen until, finally, fifteen becomes twenty.
Discipline commands you tackle the work knowing it must be completed, regardless.
Success depends on discipline because motivation comes and goes.
I invite you to look unfavourably on regret and live an intentional life. When you are aligned with something greater, there is no room for regret.
It means taking stock of what’s really important and what’s not. Commit to not doing the unimportant things anymore.
You don’t take anyone’s sh*t.
One way to get more deep work done is to cultivate a disinterest with the trivial things that other people get distracted by (hint: watching debates/political maneuvering a year before an election).
Find your crazies and love them ferociously.
The number one reason most people don’t get what they want out of life (relationships, careers, money, etc) is because they don’t have any systems in place for accomplishing the big goals they set for themselves.
