Author Ryan Holiday has a great post on maximizing your effectiveness. Posts like this are easy to read and forget. Like all good ideas, they are only valuable if you take action on them. In yesterday’s newsletter, I mentioned the value of business templates to keep you focused and organized. The ideas in Ryan’s post would be a great personal productivity template. Read the post, but better yet, take the time to write out the list so that you can follow the advice every day moving forward.
Challenge: Try writing Ryan’s list in a notebook every day for a week so that you can reflect on whether or not you are following the advice. Anyone can skim a new idea and forget it. Few take action and make it a habit.
