Now If you’re truly serious about achieving our goals, there’s a different question you should be asking yourself.

Instead of "what type of success do I want”, you should be asking yourself "what pain could I choose to live with”

The hardest part about goals is not deciding what it is that you want but whether or not you’re willing to accept the sacrifices required to achieve such goals.

We all want the end result and lifestyle that comes with our desires but not many of us want the boring and ugly journey that comes with the path to glory.

So what costs are you willing to pay?

The main killer of productivity and goals in general (whether it be work related or life related) is Procrastination. This is the biggest problem that we all face as entrepreneurs and avid self development followers. 

There’s a famous concept that has been abstracted in a number of ways. For example, have found that "If you wait until the last minute, it only takes a minute to do.”

Something that is on your todo list for months right up until it’s due date, sitting there, staring you in the face, day after day, slowly stealing bits of your attention because it’s not being handled. This is what I’m talking about.

“Work contracts to fit in the time we give it.” This was no more apparent to me than when I was completing my degree and had to crank out 10,000 words for an essay. I had no idea what I was going to write about and the sheer number of words was intimidating to me.

The Simple Trick That Doubles Your Odds of Success

As stated by Jim Rohn “We can make a living or we can design a life.” In this guide I’m going to show you how to do the latter.

With all this talk about goals and how important they are, it’s not really the goals that are important, it’s what you do and who you become in order to achieve these things.

The fears you have to face, the action you have to take and the growth you have to go through. The setting of the goals provides the focus that most people lack in life.

Let’s take a closer look at how to set powerful goals using the formula below and later we’ll string these all together into a concise and clear path to success.

How is it that we maintain a desire to reach some goals but others just get left for dust? Well we’ve already spoken about motivation and how what we really need is implementation, however, in order to keep pushing through and maintain momentum there has to be a driving force from within us.

There are scientists that have been studying this for years and one of the most consistent findings is that to maintain a desire for a goal is to work on tasks of “just manageable difficulty.”

As humans we love a good challenge, to prove ourselves worthy of the top spot or to prove we can beat the odds, but only if they are within a realistic sphere of difficulty.

Maintaining Momentum in life and business

Now that we know the importance of setting goals and how natural talent can only carry you so far.

We know that achieving all of our dreams and goals comes with a certain amount of pain that we need to deal with.

We’ve covered how to beat procrastination, Parkinson’s law and how work expands to the time we assign to it.

We’ve talked about how Akrasia is what prevents you from following through on what you set out to do.

We’ve looked at Enkrateia as the opposite of Akrasia. To be “in power over oneself”.

You now have the knowledge for Commitment Devices, you know how to minimise momentum friction and you know all about implementation intentions.

I’ve given you a simple trick to double your odds of success with goals and how you don’t really need motivation to achieve all that you desire.

There are several common problems that we face when trying to achieve mental clarity and find our focus.

Many people complain that they don’t have enough time. There are too many things that I clawing for their attention in life and in work. They have the best intentions in the world but when they fall off bandwagon of progress, all of their good habits just come to a grinding halt.

Some people plan too many things. They make life more complicated than is necessary to make an impact in their world. They’re not able to follow through because they’ve bitten off more than they can chew. This then leads to overwhelm and then back to feelings of procrastination.

Others get bored with the process and stop working towards their goals. We’ve covered this in terms of finding adequately difficult and rewarding objectives but later we’ll look at how to keep momentum with your “perceived" slow progress, because that’s all it is - Perceived.

Mental Spring Cleaning

So the famous 80 / 20 principle appears again. Now before we get into applying this idea to your goals and plans I want to walk you through this principle.

80/20 applies to many many things, maybe not in the exact number 80/20, but the pattern tends to reoccur over and over in many different places.

Most commonly and probably most popular would be in a business context where 80% of revenues come from 20% of customers.

80/20 is a fractal rule meaning that it can be applied over and over by “zooming in” on the top 20%, again & again: 80% of profits come from 20% of customers.

So how can we use this while clearing your mental inbox, goals and tasks?

The 80 / 20 Of Mental Energy

You’ve done your mental spring cleaning and have found the 80/20 tasks that are causing the most problems that need to get sorted.

Now I’m going to guess that like most people you’ve only considered tasks that are business or work related.

However to achieve complete mental focus there are areas of our personal lives that are also stealing mental energy.

Trimming The Grey Fat

As we move closer to achieving our mental clarity and focus I want to mention the task of finding your greatest leverage, but first let’s talk about the word focus.

What exactly is Focus?

Focus is defined by the experts as the ability to concentrate on an activity of interest or importance while ignoring other things.

Multitasking is the opposite of focus. Momentum and long term results come from focusing on one thing for a long period of time.

As i’ve mentioned before, our attention spans are shrinking.

So as we move towards working on the methods of finding your focus, you’ll be setting yourself apart from most of the population that can not focus for more than a few minutes at a time.

This will eventually become a rare skill that few of us will posses, so count yourself lucky that you’re learning it now.

Now let’s move on to your greatest leverage.

Finding Your Greatest Leverage
Module 3 - How To's + B60-E60 System
5 Lectures 51:55

In this last section I'm going to be sharing the specific methods of how you’re actually going to achieve all of your goals and how to find your personal productivity sweet spot.

Now that you’ve established what it is that you’re going to be working on, we need to make you ready to start your most important work.

As I’ve already mentioned, you need to choose the pain that you’re willing to live with and to work on for a long or sometimes, very long time.

It’s not easy to maintain momentum or focus but with the techniques and preparation that we go through here, you’re going to have the very best shot at achieving mental focus.

The Morning Power Ritual

In this exact moment are you doing more than one thing right now?

Are you taking in this information while engaging in another activity like checking your email, texting or scrolling through social media on your phone?

Do you feel as if you’re more productive when working on two or more tasks at the same time?

Is simultaneously juggling multiple tasks a necessary evil?

If yes, then you’re possibly a multitasker.

There are people out there that proclaim how fantastic they are at multitasking. Let me talk to you for a second on multitasking.

As I’ve mentioned before, motivation doesn’t work.

It’s a short term solution that is not appropriate for long term goals. 

You’re here to get things done now and in the future, whether those goals need to be achieved in the next 3 days, 3 months or 3 years.

What if I told you to completely ignore your goals.

After spending all of that time dreaming up your perfect day, deciding on which goals to focus on first, writing all the problems you can think of and getting them organised - Just forget everything.

What I want to explore with you here are systems. If you ignored all of your goals and just focused on building systems, do you think you could still get them done

The B60+E60 System

We are addicted to wasting our precious time

Realise that pointless work is an addiction that 99% of us are guilty of. It’s just as dangerous as legal drugs like Alcohol or Smoking.

In our modern era, social media, the internet in general, TV and mobile phones are like crack cocaine for our eyes.

They draw us in and steal our attention, but we’ve already covered this and you know that these things just overload our brains with potentially important information that rarely is important.

With your new found B60+E60 routine you’re going to find a new level of focus but with your new power comes new enemies and those are distractions.

Avoiding Distractions

“You can't manage what you can't measure.” Peter Drucker

In the last segment of this productivity guide we’re going to touch on Progress Tracking. In order for us to make massive improvement we’ll need to track the small improvements. Each small win will build exponentially on the last to create the desired outcome.

We love to see progression and one of the best ways to maintain the momentum on your systems is to see the progress. Whether we’re getting ahead or falling behind will be clear only if you’re tracking your results.

It’s a great way to keep yourself accountable and to ensure that you’re not spinning your wheels in the wrong places.

When I introduced the B60+E60 System, the idea was to reverse engineer our goals, small chunk them and then move them through the B60+E60 System to get them done, but what do we do with each completion of this 2 hour productivity segment? Of course we track the progress.
