LIFE HACK NO #1: “Do you best, forget the rest”! ~ Tony Horton
I love Tony! I want to be like him:) He is a master in mass customisation.
While doing his P90X series it felt like he was my personal trainer. His book is awesome. Read it.
Do your best, forget the rest.
Many things are outside our control. Yet we fret or worry over those things.
Focus on things you can control. Start with yourself.
Build a routine, both work and health.
Change your thoughts. Visualise, meditate what kind of life you desire. Go after it with full force.
If you have a bad phase, then know its only a phase. It will pass. Good times will come. And that will pass too. Nothing is permanent.
LIFE HACK NO #2: Keep it simple, Stupid (KISS principle) ~ Anonymous
Human mind can focus for 5 to 20 minutes at a time.
Imagine the tasks that you can accomplish if you could concentrate more.
We are a distracted lot.
Instant notifications. Shut it off. Work on reducing these time wasters.
LESS IS MORE. There is immense power in doing less.
20% of activities gives you 80% results. I have applied it in my own life with great results.
Find that 2 to 3 hours a day when you do your best work. Mine is between 5 and 8am.
Reduce cognitive efforts with monotonous tasks: Cooking (unless you enjoy it), selecting what to wear, and other routine tasks.
We have limited will power and ONLY use your brain power to work towards your strengths or things that you love to do.
Experiment a lot. Soon you will have a clear idea of what industry you want to part of. Stick to it. It took me many many years to figure out my passions.
I have chosen the Wellness industry (or probably it chose me). I have been part of it for last 10 years and have built up a decent portfolio or work, expertise and experience.
Become master of ONE. No point spreading yourself too thin.
What is that ONE thing that you can be truly great at? That people are willing to exchange $ in return to your services.
FIND THAT ONE THING THAT YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD!
LIFE HACK NO #3: Give back.
Start small, think big. Most people don’t feel like contributing. Hey, start small and build it over time.
Don’t know where to start? Start donating blood. Its in constant demand and with just one donation you can potentially save three lives! Once you start donating, most people stick with it for at least few years.
Donate money: With power of technology, you can choose any cause and select any charity that matches your interest and passion anywhere in the world and donate in less than a minute.
More you give, more you get:)
