Super U Podcast | 1% Better Every Day:
“You know, don’t wait for life to not be difficult to be happy. And I fall into this trap. Sometimes that’s fine this year even I’m like, oh, as soon as I recover from this injury or as soon as we’re through this with this clients, then I’ll be happy. So you can’t wait for that. Like there’s always good to be those hurdles in your way. So it’s really about it’s a good reminder for me to say, Happiness doesn’t come from success. You know, success comes from you being happy first.
Its mindset is exactly that’s where’s your focus goes, your energy flows. And so I’m going to tell you this, because not that I’ve mastered focus far from it, right? It’s a learning process. I’m trying to get 1% better each and every day, when it comes to how do I focus, where’s my focus goes when something like that happens. So the key is not to be a Pollyanna, this is all the research. So I did a ton of research and was like, here’s the institutional research, here’s me as the guinea pig. And then so I can kind of tell you what worked for me, but it might not work for you, this other thing might work for you. But when you look at it’s like, don’t live there too long. So you want to kind of like this, thanks. Alright, but me sitting here saying it’s thanks isn’t gonna do much for me. So let’s focus. Where does my focus need to go now? So, Steve Jobs, you might go, okay. But focus might be like, well, I’ll show them. I’m gonna start a better version over here. And so depending on what you’re in your DNA, a lot of people that’s what they go to. It’s like, okay, oh, you rejected my book. All right, I’m going to look forward to like you see in that in the airport, and the number one bestsellers list, and you’re saying you passed on that book, you know, so it’s, it depends on what your DNA is made of, but it’s really just trying to figure out, Okay, what’s what I need to focus on? Now. So allow that kind of, that’s not good. I don’t like this to kind of go through that process. And on the other end, okay, here we are here, we’re going to focus, here’s how I’m going to focus, here’s our, our team’s gonna focus in one of the ways you can do that. So is a lot of you know, this. I know this, but I don’t do it every day, even though I know I should. And I’m like a person who just wrote a book on focus so hard it is, this is how hard it is, is that the night before, you should write down what’s the most important thing, what’s the one thing that’s gonna make everything else either easier or unnecessary. If I execute well, on this one thing, it’ll make everything else either easier or unnecessary. And so when you write that down, it actually makes you sleep better because your brain You’ve tricked it to think I’ve taken care of that for now.”
