💬 HOW FAR CAN YOU GO?
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”
📐 WHAT’S YOUR FRAMEWORK?
When discussing what entrepreneurs get wrong, legendary Silicon Valley investor Bill Gurley said:
“The worst thing you can possibly do is have no framework.”
He went on to say that sadly, most don’t.
The official definition of framework is:
“A basic structure, plan, or system, as of concepts, values, customs, or rules.”
In short, a framework provides guiding principles you can apply to running a business, getting in shape, how you approach life, or building software.
Top performance coach Ben Newman teaches the “prize fighter day” plan to create a high performing daily routine.
Famed Apple designer Tony Fadell has a design structure he follows for building things.
For longevity and health, millions of people follow Dr. Mark Hyman’s Young Forever guiding principles.
What is the guiding framework you follow for success?
What we’re talking about is creating structures, systems, values, and standards you can apply to your life that will lead to winning outcomes.
Find one (or some) that work for you, your work, and even your family.
Sure, you can always just go with the flow and wing it.
But winging it is easy when you’re well prepared.
👮🏽♀️ PRODUCTIVE PUNISHMENT
Years ago, I was in a gym & the treadmills were packed. They all faced a window that overlooked…
A beautiful park with 4 miles of dirt trails across the street.
We often treat exercise as productive punishment.
We need to treat it more like exploratory play.
Make sure to enjoy yourself.
