Everybody gets wrapped up in the weeds. It's human. The magic happens when we can go back and forth between the wide angle (big perspective) and narrow-angle (deep focus). You're doing better than you think you are. Just look at how far you've come.

If you have two choices and one is more difficult, take the more difficult option. It’ll pay off more later. Taking any easy road is trading happiness down the road for minimal happiness now. Don’t get into that habit! Try one month of taking the hard road. Fill up your plate with THREE projects and live them. For a month. Do the hard stuff.

We are all sponges. Guard your mind and your path to success by being deliberate about what goes into your head on a daily basis.

Be deliberate about how intensely you pursue your dreams and ambitions. People who take little breaks generally make better decisions. Take one week at 50 percent per month. Take one month 50 percent off per year. You’ll be better for it, and stronger. This applies to business, living, fitness, strength, and relationships.

Let's be real with ourselves for a minute. All the little decisions we've made so far have led us to here. That means that EVERY little decision that we make matters. Everything we do matters. So take your actions seriously. Take small consistent steps on a daily basis towards your goal. The smaller the better. It's that simple.

It’s easy to coast through life going 50 percent. Especially when you’re a high performer. The thing is, if you want the most out of life, to be the most human you can POSSIBLY be, then living a life dedicated to discipline is the only way.

There's something undeniable when we put real effort into something, no matter what we're building. The thing is, we tend to discount sweat equity and instead look for other traditional metrics to show our growth. Show up. Do the work. And see what happens.

I quit my dayjob over a month ago. And it's been great! Personal training and fitness classes full time.
Many people feel like their time is not their own. Not true! We each have full control of what we do, and we are ultimately responsible to only ourselves. Don't get in the bad habit of needlessly sacrificing your health in the long run to accommodate the WANTS of others! If you don't have your health, what do you have? Nothing. Take care of YOU!

Certain skills are crusvia to success, just like discipline. If you want to grow the discipline muscle, you must exercise the discipline muscle. Tear out your snooze button and throw it away. Get up early. Do something. There's no shortcut! Get in the habit of waking up early and you'll be more fulfilled, happier, and you'll get more s**t done.

If you don't have a morning routine, MAKE ONE. it's important to create momentum at the start of the day. In fact, it's key! Dig deep, stay motivated, and get into it.

It's the small things that move us forward. Journaling is no exception. Every morning list 3 things you're thankful for, 3 things that would make today great, and 3 affirmations. Every evening list 3 amazing things that happened that day, and ask yourself "how could I have made today even better?" For me, it only fills one page in a standard moleskin journal. It takes 3 minutes every morning and 2 minutes every evening and makes a HUGE difference in the way I think and the way I use...

No matter where you are, start. Start now. Start with what you have in front of you. Learn everything as you go. Don't confuse knowledge for effort. Effort starts now. Get comfortable working in the dark, giving more than you get, and foregoing pleasures. Get through the dip, and become successful.

We all fail at things. It doesn't make us a failure. The only self-failure is not getting back up when we get knocked down. Learn from mistakes and move forward. Always forward.

I talk about some tools that have helped me and some things that have been on my mind. Work when it's time to work. Play when it's time to play. Don't forget to mix work and play. And keep them separate.

Making something scale is another term for "free money" if we abandon the commitment to excellence. Think small. Execute big. The market for that is huge both in business and our lives.
