I always find myself returning an old podcast with @sacca and @tferriss

It’s not just inspiring, it’s actionable

Some lessons that’ve stuck with me through the years:

Everything in life comes down to one decision: offense or defense.

“I was sick of routine meetings in San Francisco. I wanted to have time to focus. I was going on offense.”

Focus is derived from solitude.

“I moved up to the woods to learn the things I wanted to learn, and to build what I wanted to build.”

Make your own decisions in life or someone will decide for you.

“Are you working off your own to do list or are you letting everybody else write it for you?”

Deep friendships stem from long periods of time spent together.

“I wanted to invest in relationships that I wanted to grow, rather than just doing coffee after coffee.”

You have to put in the work.

“Offense requires more work. You have to push everything else aside to prioritize your work.”

26 May
Every weekend, I fire up Notion and dive into a weekly checkpoint.

It’s comprised of 15 questions:

1) Am I closer to freedom?

2) What did I ship this week?

3) Is my calendar optimized for flow?

4) Where am I trying to be too clever?
5) Does my calendar reflect my priorities?

6) Was I going too fast, too slow, or just right?

7) What 20% of actions drove 80% of results?

8) What’s giving me energy? What’s dulling me?

9) Can I intentionally slow down to move faster?
10) What am I putting off? What if I just did it now?

11) Did I let other people dictate how I spent my time?

12) Am I calm? Am I fit? If not, what's in place to change that?

13) What can I remove, digital or physical, to improve coherence?
