None of us wake up and say, today is the day I destroy my life. What we do is we make these teeny tiny decisions all day long and we don't even realise it. All day long these tiny decisions that take you so far off track. And then you wake up like I did, and you look at your life and you think, how the hell did I get here? And you have no idea. It has never been so easy to spend the best hours of your days chasing distractions. You can be distracted or you can get epic work done, you can't do both. Some people, they can't focus anymore. The victim is addicted to distraction. The leader is monomaniacaly focussed on a few things. So they do not dilute the bandwidth of their focus, their energy, and their potential. I'm suggesting to you, you don't build a wide life, and you don't build a wide career, but you go really really deep. You got to stay in your lane. You gotta keep the main thing the main thing, you got to stay on your mission and not be distracted. You know what you have to do. You're paid to be where you need to be, and don't let anybody distract you from getting your job done. You're paid for what you do and for what you produce, and not for what you're distracted from doing. Divorce yourself from the heard. Get serious about this. This is your game. This is your life. And before you know it, you will be at the end, we all know that life goes by in a blink. Start the process of breaking your addiction to distraction today. Think about where you spend your time. Is it being wasted or is it being utilised? Handle the stuff in front of you, and find every area of your life where you're just like, gosh, I'm spending a lot of time doing this stupid stuff, and get rid of it. So you end up just wasting no energy on things that don't matter, and focussing all your energy on things that actually matter. When you understand that you always have a choice to go from autopilot to decision maker, everything in your life will change. Because you will realise the amount of garbage that you put in the way of your hopes, of your dreams, of your potential. Everything comes down to the decisions that you make.
