When designing something valuable, one might come across some idea that sounds very exciting. We are so enticed by it that we get into too much of a perfectionist mindset.

It is important to identify what is necessary and what is not. If you have a fixed appetite to stick to, the priority is shipping the idea. Extra iterations come next.

No doubt it might look good with that, but is it a nice-to-have or actually a necessity?

Usually, our past experiences determine what makes us truly happy. We actually have no means to determine that as opposed to just feeling “saved” from whatever we could analyze of our past experiences.

Emotionally Intelligent people, understand this and open themselves to any experience that their life evolves towards. There are equal parts good and bad in everything.

You have the chance now. You are ready now! Go unleash your generous self.

Be open to new people, new opportunities, and new feelings.

Before starting a new project or restarting an old one, it is important to design how exactly you see yourself after a productive work cycle. What is worth investing the time in and what isn’t?

If we don’t allow ourselves a pause to think about how valuable the idea is, we can all jump too quickly to either committing resources or having long discussions about
potential solutions that go nowhere.

Find out what is the one thing that needs to be fixed. What are the actions steps you can take? Are they attainable within a specific deadline? Always set a deadline to avoid beating around the bush.

Set a clear appetite for the week focusing on what’s not working, what needs to change, and what can stay the same.

Can you make it more efficient? In what context are there too many steps?

Get out of your head!

Get out of your comfort zone!

Get out of your own rot!

You are the only one standing in your own way.

Get out and meet, explore and live every moment.

You cannot small things affect your big goals.

Don’t fear failure. Fear being in the exact same place next year as you are today.

Growth is uncomfortable because you have never been here before.

Growth equals change. But don’t fall back into your old patterns just because they are familiar. Feel the fear and do it anyway.

Let your faith in the journey be stronger than your doubts and fears.

Great things never come from comfort zones.

Instead of saying “I have to do this!”

Say, “I get to do this!”

Your work matters. Your consistency matters. Your presence matters. Your ideas matter.

There are so many people just waiting for you to open up and voice your opinions. The world needs the magic that is inside you.

Be conscious of what you are consuming, whether it’s visual entertainment, reading a book, or having a snack.

Your diet is everything you watch, listen to, people you hang out with, and conversations you have.

Surround yourself with an environment that pushes you further. Reach out to people who you feel will help you take initiative and seek constructive feedback. Set clear boundaries and be kind to yourself.

Be mindful of what you put into your body, be it emotionally, spiritually, or physically.

Every morning, after we wake up our brain is fully recharged with stacks of mental units. They help us decide, do the deep work, finish tasks, etc.

Now, it’s up to you how effectively you use them. You see, each action you take is consuming your count.

Avoiding getting stuck in unnecessary tasks and ineffective decisions will leave you exhausted. Avoid decision-making when you are about to unleash your full potential.

Fix a time, decide what will you wear and where you will sit. Design what you need and how you can get yourself ready. This will give your brain a signal that it's time and will avoid getting stuck with small decisions.
