I’ve realized that the times in my life when I’ve felt stuck, unmotivated, or lost have been mostly when I stopped doing one or more things that were working for me. I failed to adhere to my tried and true principles.
For the most part, it’s not that we don’t KNOW what to do, it’s that we don’t have a system in place to make sure we do it consistently. The best advice is useless if it’s not applied.
The recipe for success is actually quite simple and boring: Apply the fundamentals day in and day out. But in order to do this effectively, you need to first identify the specific principles that work for you and live by them.
Recently, I’ve been crystallizing the most useful strategies and principles from the past couple decades of my life and organizing them into a framework that will ensure I stick to them.
