🎯Today's Focus Tip: What do you exchange your time with?

Hey pals, that’s pretty simple: our brain tends to fulfill our time with tasks, but what are these tasks leading us to? Are we accomplishing what we really want financially, socially, physically, etc?

When we analyze our time usage, we must keep in mind that we have exact and only 24 hours a day and, as the old saying goes, “each choice a renounce”. Every time we make a decision to do one thing, it takes the time that we could use for another thing. If we are happy with the exchange (ex: spending time having a nice snack instead of arguing bullshit with a neighbor), that’s ok. If we are not happy about it (ex: being at work extra time to solve a problem a colleague made instead of taking your kid to play), then it’s up to you to take a stance and ensure that you are using your time for what you really desire.

Of course, the first step is deciding what you really want and what are your priorities. After that, you need to take these priorities and goals into consideration in every decision you make. If I say YES to this, what am I saying NO to? After this, act as your situation allows and as your heart and desire tell you to.

🧠 Procrastination

➡️ Anne-Laure uses the 10 minutes rule to beat procrastination - She basically tricks her brain into getting started. She says to herself " I am going to do this task for 10 minutes". This technique works because once you get started the chance is that you will continuu on doing the task. Check it more details on how she does it, here.

➡️ Ali Abdal has been experiencing lately the struggle maintaining consistency with this weekly newsletter. - His solution besides introspecting on the struggles to keep up with the task, he's got help from his accountability buddy who is his assistant Elizabeth who is constantly messaging him on Slack to remind him to write stuff. You can get one accountability buddy on

📕 The book that will change the way you look at habits


“An accountability partner can create an immediate cost to inaction. We care deeply about what others think of us, and we do not want others to have a lesser opinion of us.” James Clear

Atomic Habits by James Clear - the book in 3 Sentences

  • An atomic habit is a regular practice or routine that is not only small and easy to do but is also the source of incredible power; a component of the system of compound growth.
  • Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don’t want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change.
  • Changes that seem small and unimportant at first will compound into remarkable results if you’re willing to stick with them for years.
