How’s your focus and discipline these days?
If you’re like most people, it’s not good. In today’s distraction-fueled and instant gratification society, we’re practically being begged to lose our focus in the name of some brand or person. And our ego loves it.
Fact is, we’re not robots. That only means we’re not machines, and we rely on some downtime to regroup. But don’t mistaken downtime for being downright lazy.
The good news is that you can vastly improve your focus, self-discipline, and productivity with some effort. It starts with the right mindset.
Welcome to Monday Views.
The right mindset means you’re willing to do what it takes to succeed in life. It means you view Mondays the same way you view Fridays, because the day of the week doesn’t matter – it’s what you do in the day that matters.
And to fill your days doing things that serve your purpose and your passions (or allow you to escape your current situation if you aren’t happy) requires focus and discipline.
That’s why I’m here.
I used to be like you. I went from one distraction to another, self-diagnosing myself with ADD. I was convinced it was in my brain. I was also convinced I couldn’t do anything about it besides take some meds.
Well, one of those is true. The other isn’t. Can you guess which isn’t? Yep, the part about not being able to do anything.
My 20’s were, for all intents and purposes, considered decently successful. I held steady jobs in finance, saved money, and was responsible. But I also wasted a lot of time doing absolutely nothing. Nothing, at least, in terms of moving me closer to my goals, ambitions, and purpose.
That changed two years ago, and I’ve been on a non-stop quest to flip the script and do whatever it takes to reach my goals.
Along the way, I want to help you do the same.
I find that generally, people who dispense some pretty awesome advice in the self-development realm fall into three categories:
- They take themselves a bit too seriously.
- They provide some really fluffy content – the kind where you think you deserve the same trophy as 1st place for just trying.
- They spread themselves too thin trying to touch on every aspect of self-growth and personal development.
Let’s lighten the mood a bit, shall we? And more importantly, let’s focus on the areas that matter: your success through discipline, productivity, and focus.
Advice from a stranger should be practical, efficient, and yes, light-hearted at times.
Can you take a guy like me seriously?
You should, because I look cool.
My purpose here is to provide you with unfiltered, practical advice that hopefully sparks something within you and gets you to work on changing what you do in the day, not your view of it. Because it’s generally not Mondays that suck, it’s your mindset. Change that, and you can change your views.
