One of the things I love doing with Bluewire Media is helping others get the best out of themselves and getting the best for themselves. (I strongly believe you can’t do one without the other). I’m sure this is why I enjoyed the Native Genius session so much.
But how can you get the best out of others, if you can’t get the best out of yourself?
The 4 Hour Work Week title is a bit misleading. At the end of the day it’s not about only doing 4 hours of work per week and doing nothing else. It’s about doing 4 hours of “work” (the stuff you don’t really like that much) per week and dedicating the rest of your time, energy and focus to those things that you love doing, that drive/challenge you, that make you leap out of bed each day.
I would highly recommend reading this book – it is literally a game changer. [Or try the articles on his blog]
In the meantime, here is 1 small, immediately actionable task from the book I’ve put in place that has dramatically changed my days:
Everyday, set only 2 priorities for the next day before you leave work or go to bed.
These are the 2 most important things you want to get done, not necessarily the most urgent and certainly not an entire to do list (although you can keep one elsewhere). The key here though is to do it before you leave work or before you go to bed. This means you’ll wake up with a sense of purpose and clarity about your day. I can’t tell you how much this has helped me.
Try it and let me know how you go. I’ll be very interested to hear.
