I haven’t got time…

… to think differently.

… to confront my fear(s).

… to stop and focus.

… to stop doing it, doing it, doing it (the technician’s mindset).

… to listen.

… to walk about and find out what is really going on.

… to have a life outside of work.

It’s the easiest thing in the world to use a heightened state of activity to blot out:

thinking about what you want out of life.

what is truly important to you.

Priorities

Doing less is counter-intuitive to our success model.

To find the time and space to change your modus operandi, you have to work out a way of dividing your day in a way that allows you to work on the important and not just the urgent. If all you ever do is what shouts loudest, then you will never see the opportunities all around you.

“Easier said than done,” you say.

No, it’s not easy. Not at all.

In fact, trying to fight your DNA of perpetual motion – which is born out of a (left brain) work ethic vs. creative freedom – is one of the hardest things you can do. It’s like going to war with yourself.

Have faith. Not just in your ability to change; but the self-belief to know that another way of living may unleash the real you.

And please, don’t fall victim to living a life on someone else’s terms. In fact, Me First is the most important thing you can focus on right now. It’s not selfish. It’s just making the most of your latent potential.
