1. Eliminate Your Distractions

“I don’t have enough time.”

This is a very common and inaccurate statement.

We all have plenty of time.

It’s just a matter of how we spend it.

The Stoic philosopher Seneca put it this way:

We are not given a short life, but we make it short, and we are not ill-supplied but wasteful of it. Life is long if you know how to use it.

If you want to make the most out of life, you have to eliminate distractions ruthlessly.

So, get really good at saying no.

Clarify your most important objectives and ignore everything else.

Do less, and do it better.

If you do, you’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish.

2. Love Your Work

You shouldn’t expect your work to make you rich, powerful, or famous.
