Even if you were working a minimum wage job, as a burger flipper at McDonald’s (delicious), your quality of life would be 50x - 100x better than Kings & Queens from just a couple of centuries ago.
There is a lot to be grateful for in life, always remember that.
AND TRANSPARENT COMMUNICATION
Transparent Communication - Have the confidence and trust in each other to have the difficult conversations. Be free to speak your mind with the pack.
Clear Communication : Before you speak or write, take 30-60 seconds to plan out your message. Don’t ramble.
Step 1 : Announce 2-5 points that you are going to make.
Step 2 : Plan 1st and last sentence. The 1st sentence creates the framework for the message, while the last sentence outlines the action plan.
Step 3 : Record yourself on video without a script, wait for a day, then review your video, which will show you the weaknesses in your communication.
KEEP LEVELING UP
Just like if you were playing a video game. We are only able to show the best version of ourselves through continuous improvement and development.
Focused Effort - Focused action is 100x better than unfocused labor. Indiscriminate action is a form of laziness. Focus on the 80/20 principle. Work on 20% of the things that produce 80% of the results and ignore everything else.
Never Multi-task. Ever. - Focus on one thing. Get it done before moving on to the next.
Leave Comfort Zone - If things have been too comfortable for too long, it’s time to do something that feels a little bit scary.
Continual Learning - The moment we stop learning, not just at work but in life, is when we commit intellectual suicide and have the world pass us by. Always commit time to learn.
Experimentation and Risk-Taking are Encouraged - Trying, experimenting, taking calculated risks are encouraged and welcomed. Making mistakes and failing is part of the process. This is how we learn, get better, get stronger, and move forward.
