I would like to share with you a secret how the one can make thousand of dollars in single day. Here is the strategy that will not only answer this question but your question as well what is the point of being sharper, smarter and lightening fast – if you cannot make big money?
I have gone through the many books on this topic, tried different tricks to see if there would be any improvement – but finally it has come down to these basic steps.
Every single day focus on improving your one skill that completely demands your attention, focus and effort. It should be something that takes you into what I call “The Zone” or into “Deep Work”.
When you are doing this particular task – let there be no noise, no disturbance, no smart phone, no distractions, no notifications – nothing – only you and this particular work.
3 TO 4 HOURS BLOCK
Ensure that you take 3 to 4 hours per session and give yourself at least 2 to 4 sessions per sitting OR go in for 3 to 4 hours every single day. There should be NO breaks in between.
EVERY SINGLE DAY
Ensure you practice this particular skill with this session of 3 to 4 hours every single day. There should be no day off. If you need to have a day off – it should be only one day per week.
TEACHING IS LEARNING
Ensure you train other people with regards to this skill. Teach this skill to both mature crowds as well as youngsters. As you do this – your brain will learn to decipher into creatively explaining this task to others. This helps you learn better.
Compete with not only yourself (today you completed 40 questions in one hour. Next week 45 questions or if today you lifted 45kgs for 10 reps, after a month it is 48kgs for 11 reps). But also compete with those who are better than you.
Write a diary to note down your progress. Keep yourself completely involved in the task. And ask yourself this singular question – how can I be better. When you start doing this task in this manner – you will learn, grow and improve.
