“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” ~ Epicurus

Biggest blocks

1. Mundane / Habitual work
2. Work requiring other peoples input
3. Perfectionism
4. Trying to impress others

Any complex tasks is a series of small tasks. Divide a complex task into simple tasks to get started.
Time and Energy are like budgets
45 – 90 mins max concentration after that you experience a burnout. Only work in short busts of productivity and mentally practice before working. Start day with todo
Divide work into longer timespan with small chunks everyday. Process > Goals
Parallelize around blockers
Batching – Combine boring tasks
Best ideas come in seconds or minutes. Let your brain work in the background. No way you can force it if it a serious problem
Bad ideas lead to good ideas. Give yourself permission to write garbage. Taste hinders you
Do other things … one thing can inspire another thing
Make it fun follow the fun. Think about beating your previous record
Think of the impact for motivation
Multiple rehearsals to get 1 final presentation right. A task needs to be done atleast 5 times to get it right – outline, draft, revision, feedback, final
