Why So Few People Are Iconic
Today's insight for A-Players: without relentless optimization you're on the path to irrelevance. If you’re in business, the groovy days are gone and only the fittest will survive. You absolutely need to shed excess expenses, seek out operational efficiencies and rework your shop so that you deliver astonishing value in a market where your competition is charging the same amount and giving customers less [just to survive]. Use what life is sending us to build a better you, grow a business that serves more people and live a life that’s more creative, joy-filled and kind.
Shift from Superficiality to Granularity
Most people in business are very superficial. Because we live in a world where everything seems easy, everything is so accessible, so the majority of society accepts taking a light-hearted approach in business, with the products they produce, the service they deliver, with their health, with their education, and with their relationships. But the best of the best are very different. They aren't superficial: they're granular.
Your Phone is Costing You Your Fortune
You can play with your phone all day, or you can change the world. You don’t get to do both. I love technology. Many of my most adored clients are tech giants like Microsoft and Satyam Computers. But it must be our servant – not our master. We must apply technology to advance our dreams – not spoil our days. Starting today - turn off all notifications on your phone, as the distraction and interruption they generate is costing you a fortune. And stop using your phone as an alarm clock. It’s just too easy to begin your day checking email or notifications this way, taking you down a digital rabbit hole of terrific distraction and toxic interruption.
One Method to Fuel Your Longevity
I've been reading a fair amount of research on longevity and on the scientific quest for immortality. Here's one little-known fact that I wanted to share with you today, in the being helpful to your agelessness... Your social orbit matters. Be with people who inspire [and rejuvenate] you. Your longevity depends on it.
The Primary Relationship of Personal Heroism
Often, we are our greatest abusers. And when we increase the caring of our selves, we begin to sense the secret glory that rests at our base. And come to know all that we truly are. As you love yourself more, you’ll grow intimacy with your natural genius, discover your truest powers and honor your highest self.
The Mentality of Mastery
Be deep vs. be light. World-class lives in a fanatical devotion to perfection on the tiny details. At a hotel I visited, they de-seeded the lemon wedges. Dial in your craft.
