When you’re trying to get more done, it’s not enough to focus on working faster.
That’s because your average speed is a result of two opposing forces.
Firstly, there’s whatever’s propelling you forwards:
- Hard Work
- Great Ideas
- Strong Goal-Setting
But they’re countered by the things that are holding you back:
- Toxic relationships
- Lack of sleep
If those forces are equal and opposite, there’s a Newtonian balance which means you’ll find it hard to make any real progress.
What seems immediately easier – sweating to ramp up the effort on list one, or removing things from list two?
I know, right?
