💡Pro Letter #12

I'm just doing my job...

‘Do more things that make you feel like you’ - Grant Hackett

Hello and welcome!

To keep the Pro Letter on the straight and narrow, I’ve added ‘the easiest feedback you will give… ever’ in the footer. It’s anonymous, so don’t be shy!

Today you’ll get: 3 bullet tips, 1 borrowed idea, 2 reads you need… and a question for you!

Bullet tips

  • Productivity:

‘The more you move, the easier it is to keep moving.

Maintain the momentum’ - James Clear

Momentum doesn’t have to be monumental.

It can be smaller doses.

We associate momentum with something so big, it’s out of our control. Assuming it will forever gain pace to our benefit.

As the habit king (Mr Clear) suggests… move, and keep moving.

Keep it simple. Keep it small. Keep building momentum.

  • Wealth:

‘Money. It allows me to optimize my life for freedom and independence.

But, it can't replace true happiness, that's coming from the inside - Jessie van Breugel

Separate money from happiness!

Remember what money gives us… and it’s not a guaranteed happy state.

Like Jessie, it can give you freedom and independence, and that of course will add an element of happiness to your life.

Money can give us fleeting moments of joy, but the truest of happiness needs to come from from within.

  • Life:

‘Your greatest (and only) enemy is your own mind’ - Mark Manson

Who’d have thought it!

The biggest hurdle we need to overcome is… us.

It’s easier to point the finger at every external factor we can think of before looking at ourselves as the problem.

The world is not always the enemy.

Compete only against yourself!

A borrowed idea

@ShaneAParrish on choices

Reads you need

I’m just doing my job (Seth Godin)

But what if you weren’t?

What if you replaced “doing” with “improving” or “reinventing” or “transforming”?

When we do our job, what happens to it? Does it go away, to be replaced by tomorrow’s endless list of tasks?

What would happen if we had enough confidence and trust to reconsider the implications of how we do what we do?
