There is no rulebook saying that life is fair, or you are owed an easy ride
You are not the focus of all the world’s attention: if “everything” was truly against YOU, then life for the rest of us would be a breeze as you take the heat. You’re in it with the rest of us, albeit with your own set of challenges. So take some comfort in the fact that, while you’re unique, your not so special that the cosmos is out to get you.
Gratitude is helpful if it helps you take stock and keep real about what assets you have at your disposal. Gratitude is not helpful when used as a pacifier to excuse the bad just because you also have some good. Happiness is not calculated on a balance sheet.
1. Have a clean setup for workspace – less items is better
2. Create a massive amount of time for yourself – If there’s anything you want to do that will hinder your concentration, spare a day off and do it. – Automate anything you can do, such as regular bill payment – Shop online instead of doing regular shopping – Don’t do any ‘recreation’ activities you won’t enjoy eg: going to the beach – Spare enough time for sleep and exercise to be on peak condition
3. Ruthlessly prioritize what you are doing – focus on the most important thing and don’t get sidetracked on little tasks. Spend the time on what matters.
4. Raise your standard and put yourself on uncomfortable area – Have more expectation of yourself, preferably above your station – Weekend doesn’t have to be the time to laze around, evening doesn’t mean you have to do relaxing activities
5. Actually do the work – put the time to do the work: xxx minutes/hours per day start from xx PM
