1. Build self-awareness

Self-awareness is very hard, why?
Because we're constantly on our minds, not in the present moment

You need to be present to be aware of your actions and thoughts.

An excellent way would be practicing mindfulness.
2. Use the killing ANTs technique.

ANTs are automatic negative thoughts.

And how to kill them?
Let's say, you have the thought: I am dumb... You take a deep breath, and think: NO! I am a learner!
3. Do hard things.

Do things that require courage, write a book, or start that project!

Don't care if people will think you're cringy, why?

If you wanna grow, you have to be okay with getting criticized!

Remeber, a growth mindset means growing, not proving your ability.

A growth mindset is about realizing that you can change, that you are born an empty cup.

We sometimes blame external factors for how we feel.
How you feel has nothing to do with external factors... You're in control of how you feel.
Let's say someone forces you to run a marathon or he will kill your whole family, you might not like it... And perhaps get angry.

Now, what if you run a marathon yourself?
You'd feel proud, good.

Although these are the same things, but you'd not feel the same.

5 Ways To Boost Your Productivity And Get To Deep Work In 30 Minutes or Less.

1. Make your work blocks longer.

You've probably heard about the pomodoro technique, and it's excellent.

But it's better to make the work blocks longer, why?
To have a bigger chance of reaching flow.
I prefer 45 minutes of work and a 10 minutes break.
2. Keep a water bottle beside you.

Without good hydration, you can't focus.

And what if you get thirsty while working?
You'd have to leave your work to drink water...
So just keep a bottle beside you!

1. Track your progress.

You can't manage what you can't track.
Are you building habits? Track them!
Find a way to track your progress.
Write your progress down.
2. Journal.

Journaling is a very effective way to coach yourself.
And a journal can be more patient that a human coach.
Ask yourself questions, write down your thoughts, know your weaknesses... Be self-aware.

Don't have an ideal self, it just makes you think you are far away from improving.
Just build good habits, be consistent, and enjoy the process.
