In this high-energy episode, Nick talks about the massive amount of overwhelm he’s seeing out there. We all experience that feeling of losing control, of impending failure, which generally drives us to work harder and worry more.
But as Nick explains, by using a simple technique, you can easily take back the control and dominate rather than suffocate.
- Overwhelm is often created from fear. We feel we have too many things to do, each of them important, and that if we miss any kind of goal, we will have failed. This isn’t true.
- Take a step back and focus on three things. The brain has an uncanny ability to focus upon three things well. Step beyond three and we begin to lose clarity.
- For every ninety-day cadence, focus on the three results that matter most – the three results you’ll work on to attain. You must focus on the results and outcomes, not just tasks
‘It’s not about doing more, it’s about doing less’
’The base of success is this focus on three’
‘It’s about what you say no to that’ll get you the best results’
