The 3 Simple Steps to Destroy Your Life

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

By Robin Sharma

Global Leadership Expert. #1 Bestselling Author. Humanitarian.

There was once a little boy…

…he was full of creativity, fire and love.

…he lived with wonder, wanted to be heroic and was absolutely present, to every moment.

…he truly believed he was a giant, brave and strong and fierce.

…and he truly thought he was a pirate, making his own rules, playing his own game and leading his original life.

But…

…at school, his teachers taught him to be like everyone else. Walk in a single file. Smother his confidence for the sake of fitting in. Stifle his heartfelt dreams. Never be a giant. Be a small child, they said.

…at home, his parents told him to follow their rules, to fit into society and to put on a fake mask of superficiality, as he walked into the community. “Stop being a pirate,” they said, “be realistic and practical and ordinary.”

And so…

…the little boy began to forget who he really was. A giant with great powers and lofty ambitions. And a pirate, who protected his authenticity and loved being different.

…he went through school. Studied hard. Got a job. Was married. Had children. Bought an average house on an average street and ate average food and had average friends and thought average thoughts and felt average feelings and made average money and had average routines and lived an average life.

…because…

…he forgot he was a giant. And a pirate.

Oh–I should tell you:

…when the boy became old, he began to forget other things, like his phone number and his favorite food. As he grew even older, he started forgetting where he lived, the name of his wife and how his children looked. When he was extremely old, he actually forgot who he was. In the world.

On the last hour of his final day, he did remember something though…

…that he was a giant. And that he was a pirate.

You were born with a mission. You have profound genius within you, as neuroscience is now confirming [I hope you’ve discovered all of this new research; if you don’t, you will be left behind by those who do]. You truly have been made to win.

…the dreams you hold deep in your heart can be done. And your past sufferings can be transformed into strengths, stepping stones and the fire of undefeatability. You can live the remainder of your life in the way you once hoped you could [before the giant and pirate within you was programmed out of you].

But I’ll be direct because I’m serious about helping you: if you keep doing these 3 things, you’ll destroy your beautiful potential to live a gorgeous life:

#1. Keep running your same mental stories about who you can’t be, why you can’t win and all you can’t do. [learning principle: your personal story becomes your self-fulfilling prophecy].

#2. Forget that today can be the first day of your new life, if you make some new choices. [learning principle: your daily decisions manufacture all future performance].

#3. Not investing in yourself so your mindset, heartset, healthset and soulset are raised to rare-air levels. [learning principle: the great masters all know this one secret: income never exceeds self-identity + impact never rises above personal bravery. So this is where much of your time must be spent].

So what should you do today to dramatically change the game for yourself?

…for 20+ years of my life, I’ve been teaching billionaires, NBA stars, famous CEOs and movie icons what to do each day to reset their thinking and behavior so they generate the explosive results they never seemed to be able to have before…

…my elite private coaching circle IconX [where I show select entrepreneurs how to become history-makers] has a one year long waiting list. Even then, very few make it in.

…my flagship 4-day experience that happens every December, The Titan Summit, has had Richard Branson, Shaquille O’Neal and the co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak, on my faculty and has become one of the hottest [and hardest] rooms to get into for business-builders who want to become world-changers.

But I wanted to share my proprietary methods with a larger group as so many people in our world want to live heroic lives while they make our world a better place.

And so…

…two years ago, I deconstructed the best insights, methods and tools that I’d been quietly sharing with many of the world’s most successful people into a remarkable 2-day live event.

…I called it Personal Mastery Academy (PMA). It sold out swiftly. Those fortunate enough to get in said the blend of neuroscience on achieving legendary productivity, plus my proprietary mental models on battleproofing your mindset in a volatile world, plus discovering how the billionaires build empires, plus living a joyful [and soulful life], plus contributing to humanity was like nothing they’d ever experienced. And that the two days with me transformed them, at a core level. Forever.

So…here’s where it gets really good for you:

…to help you make some GIANT leaps in your professional and personal life so you end this year feeling 2017 was the finest year [by far] of your life, I’m doing something SUPERSPECIAL for you…

…my team carefully arranged to have the entire event recorded and over the past few months we’ve been handcrafting the footage into an absolutely world-class online learning system called Personal Mastery Academy Online.

…the power of the content and the value of what you’ll learn really is priceless. Of course, you’ll have to do the work to get the results. This is NOT a program for dabblers and fakers. It’s for real people who really feel the need to make some big shifts that will last over time.

…because they don’t want to waste the rest of their lives figuring things out on their own.

–the regular tuition fee to get into the live event was $5000 [rising to $7000 in 2018] BUT when you get one of the limited memberships to this new online course based on the live event I’m making available today you’ll get everything for 88% OFF.

And because I’m so sure Personal Mastery Academy Online [PMAO] will transform your productivity/performance/prosperity and impact on the world, I’m adding an ironclad 30-day 100% zero questions asked money-back guarantee if you don’t love the program.

Yes, I’m putting all of the risk on my own shoulders so you have none on yours.

So you truly have no risk whatsoever and the life you’ve always hoped for to gain.

…remember that giant in you who is powerful, fearless and unbeatable? And the pirate, who wants to do things your own way and be true to yourself?

Ok. You really should do this. And please do remember that the most successful [and joyful] people on the planet are where they’re at because they ACT on opportunity. So get off the fence and DO THIS NOW because memberships are very limited and they’ll be gone soon…

My 23 Best Tactics for Personal Greatness

Monday, May 1st, 2017

By Robin Sharma

Global Leadership Expert. #1 Bestselling Author. Humanitarian.

As you know, if you’ve been following my work over the years, 1% victories performed daily–and flawlessly–are the keys to producing gargantuan results. Over long periods of time.

You really don’t have to make sudden changes or frightening optimizations to raise your game + revolutionize your life.

Instead, just master each day…

…By simply devoting to delivering a few micro-wins that, over time, elevate you to a place called wow.

And a league called legendary.

Anyway, it’s a spectacular Spring morning in New York City as I write this for you.

My Russian trainer pushed me hard in the gym early this morning.

Now, I’m hidden in my hotel room with everything on “do not disturb” so I can get this message right for you. And bring on my best.

You’ll find it ultra-valuable. If you make the time to study it. Versus skim it. [Ideas don’t work for those who don’t do the work, yes?].

I’m here in Manhattan for IconX, my super-elite coaching group for empire-builders. Next session we go to Nelson Mandela’s prison cell on Robben Island in South Africa.

You know — I’ve been travelling a lot.

Writing my new book The 5 AM Club in quiet hotel rooms in inspirational cities. Delivering leadership presentations to my beloved clients. Doing whatever I am able to do to be a light of inspiration [and impact] in our increasingly volatile world.

Also been thinking a lot on what I need to do more of in my life, what pursuits I need to strip out and what moves I need to make to experience my next level of craft, fire + service.

And with this main aim in mind, I’ve deconstructed 23 powerful tactics to promote your personal greatness. To feed your inner hero. To fuel the history-maker within.

With great love + respect, I encourage you to make the time right now to read each of the ideas with a thoughtful mindset — and an open heartset…

…We’re all busy but I really do trust you’ll find what follows enormously valuable.

And as you know so well from our work together: the performer who learns the most wins…

Ok. Here you go:

#1. Don’t check emails or your social feeds first thing in the morning. Exploit your most pristine hours for your most valuable projects. That’s what the Titans do.

#2. Create your “victory move”. This is a physical pose you do at certain times of the day to kickstart your mental concentration and unleash your physical energy. Doing so often is a strong ritual supported by some very good science.

#3. Forgive anyone you haven’t forgiven. It’s a gift you’ll give yourself. [Hard to climb a mountain carrying someone on your back].

#4. Remember that the bigger your dream, the more important your team. You can’t get to world-class with a low-performing support circle.

#5. Read “Peak” by Anders Ericsson.

#6. Get out into nature at least once a day. Tremendous benefits for your mindset, heartset, healthset + soulset.

#7. Stop being so hard on yourself. You’re human. We each have our gifts and our flaws. Our hopes and our fears. You and I are works in progress. Celebrate who you’ve become. And honor the progress you’ve made [instead of demanding perfection].

#8. Plan your week in intimate detail every Sunday morning. This removes the need to make multiple decisions each day [because you now have a beautiful blueprint in place]. And that frees up your focus + energy to dial into the few priorities that are most vital to your A-game.

#9. Let go of the relationships in your inner-circle that steal your joy. Your highest life depends on this one winning move.

#10. Travel more. You’ll receive your most genius ideas and experience your happiest moments running through the streets of Paris, swimming with the dolphins in Mauritius and watching the sun set over the Taj Mahal in Agra.

#11. Have good judgment. Yes, I know I’m old-school on this. But I think we’re living in a culture of oversharing. People show up in their pajamas on Instagram, reveal their intimate details on YouTube and have no boundaries on the internet. Go contrarian.

#12. Breathe more deeply. Regularly. All elite producers do.

#13. Drink more water. And ginger tea with fresh lemon in it.

#14. Run my “Daily 5 Ritual”. It’s helped millions of people do amazing things in business + their personal lives. Five small goals done with perfect execution every day makes 150 accomplished goals a month and 1850 in a year. Life changer. Truly.

#15. Read “What Doesn’t Kill Us” by Scott Carney. Fascinating.

#16. Read “Into The Magic Shop” by James Doty. Moving.

#17. Get enough sleep. Yes I made The 5 AM Club famous but I’ve never evangelized sleep deprivation. You absolutely need excellent sleep to perform at otherworldly levels. And to be happy, healthy and strong. [And yes–I’m in year 3 of writing my new book The 5 AM Club. Yikes!]

#18. Remember that your pain has served your growth. Your setbacks have strengthened your character. And your heartbreaks have helped your heroism. [Let resentments go. And trust life has your back].

#19. Find your Dream Room. This is a place you go where you have zero devices to distract you. Schedule chunks of time in here at least 3x a week. To produce Michelangelo-level work. That wows the world.

[Note: I could walk you through the mind-blowing science of transient hypofrontality, the triggering of a brain cell type called oligodendrocytes that happens away from interruption and the related production of myelin that research is now showing is the secret of mastery. But that’s for my live event Personal Mastery Academy

…If you’re seriously ready to x25 your confidence, performance and impact, watch this important trailer and read the details below and get one of the few remaining seats before we’re sold-out for another year].

#20. Run my “2 Massage Protocol”. Getting two 90-minute massages a week isn’t an expense. It’s an investment in your peak mindset, massive levels of daily energy [you can’t inspire the world if you’re exhausted], battleproofing against stress + extending your life [a great key to legendary is longevity].

#21. Respect time. Learning how to leverage your time like a pro is mission-critical to leading an epic life. So many people want gorgeous results but aren’t doing the things required to have those rewards. You can’t own your game without installing the core mentalities, routines, operating systems and life structures that the best use every day.

#22. Protect your willpower. One of the most valuable of your performance assets is self-discipline. You can have a brilliant ambition, a sensational mission, exceptional talents and great products. But without the ability to execute on these–and translate your grand intentions into daily results, nothing happens. So understand that elite performance without regular recovery leads to depletion.

#23. Be alone a lot. Solitude is where you get to remember your greatness. World-class performers spend a lot of time alone. Envisioning. Planning. Scripting. Practicing. Studying. Iterating. You should too.

Hope this post helps you produce some exponential gains in your work and personal life…

…And if you feel you’re finally ready to express your gifts, declare victory over your fears, feel exceptionally happy/strong/peaceful and rise to a way of being that’s world-class…

…Then you really should watch this inspirational video because your highest life is waiting for you and days are slipping away.

And I also strongly encourage you to let go of all your excuses and make the choice that will beautifully [and swiftly] elevate the rest of your life by getting one of the final seats left for my famous event Personal Mastery Academy here.

We’re 98% sold out…

I would really really really love to teach you how the most successful and fulfilled people on the planet do it…

…When you get one of the few seats that remain before we’re sold out for another year you’ll learn:

–how to rewire your thinking so greatness is automatic + fearlessness is your default

–the science behind genius and the tools for you to live it daily through my proprietary world-builder systems

And you’ll spend two days with some of the most successful + wonderful people on the planet…

Wait and you’ll probably not get in this year…

The Misfit’s Manifesto

Friday, April 28th, 2017

By Robin Sharma

Global Leadership Expert. #1 Bestselling Author. Humanitarian.

Not easy standing for your highest.

The highway to the resident genius within you is a massively messy ride.

The path to personal heroism + private elevation is confusing, uncomfortable and dangerous.

Just saying.

And my loving [I really do love you] and deeply sincere suggestion to you is that this way of living out the remainder of your life is the wisest [and bravest] decision you’ll ever make.

Your very legacy depends on this one choice. It does.

Not sure if I’m being super clear for you here, as I wish to be. So allow me to go more granular.

We live in a broken world…

–we shoot and kill brothers and sisters of our own global family

–we violently drag grandfathers off airplanes for no real reason

–we flee our creativity via an addiction to escapism on our phones, mindless video games and following the days of people we don’t even know on the “social” media [who only show you what they want you to see from their un-perfect lives; because we all have parts of our lives that are under construction.]

–a person who fiercely protects their productivity, ferociously expresses their greatest talents + joyfully does work that serves many is considered weird.

–someone who works really hard, shows up early, overdelivers on expectations, has good manners, sweats tiny details and keeps their promises is called strange.

–one who verbally appreciates people, smiles with radiant positivity and looks people in the eyes [versus down at some device], wears their feelings on their sleeves and stands for a blinding love of humanity is considered a freak.

–an individual who dares to be an individual, soaks in their originality and pursues their own colorful vision of a glorious ambition is labeled an eccentric…

In a damaged world a truly high-functioning human is not only vastly misunderstood. They are seen as broken.

See, the job of society is to get you to fit in, never stand out.

The main aim of our culture is to produce factory workers who think like the herd, behave like the crowd and smother the fire for outright greatness that is the natural birthright of every one of us.

“Don’t you dare think you can play at world-class”, they tell you.

Be not so foolish to believe you can do work that wows, have health that soars and a life that allows you to feel alive. And makes history [in your own unique way].

Nope.

–Stay on that phone.

–Numb out those feelings [How can you love until you first feel I ask you?].

–Block those brave thoughts.

–Stifle the big ideas that would allow you to own your industry.

–Dismiss your instincts to choose mastery [over mediocrity] of your craft.

–Close that heart that longs to open—and connect.

–Miss the breezes, avoid the magical moments [starry nights, simple food beautifully prepared, children laughing in a playground, a wise book that stirs your soul, music that makes you want to jump like you were 5 again].

–And definitely don’t talk to strangers.

Sidenote: A week and a half ago I was in a bookstore. I stood in the Economics section [yes, I read widely]. The man next to me sneezed…

…I said “Bless you.”

He remained quiet. Looked at me oddly. I walked a little closer…

…”Everyone needs as many blessings as we can get”, I offered.

He paused, didn’t say a word. For an extended minute.

Then, tenderly, he grabbed my shoulder. For just an instant. Sadness [and tears] filled his eyes. Silently telling me my little act of decency helped him in a hard time.

People are in a lot of pain, you know.

Saw a flight attendant the other day, smiling throughout the cabin. On her game. Proud of her impact. A Leader Without a Title. Then she vanished behind the curtain. Finally able to take some time to breathe.

I went up to use the washroom. Noticed she was crying.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” Ian Maclaren

Look: I’ve never said I was a guru.

Never. No interest in that. No need for you to applaud me, appreciate me or elevate me. I have my talents. And I have my flaws. I have my precious hopes for the future and carry the scars of my past cuts. Very imperfect. Just a man.

…Trying to be a light.

I love the line: everyone seems normal—until you get to know them.

All I’m saying in this message is this…

…The things that make you a misfit in the eyes of the majority are the very things that make you special [and great/beautiful/a standout].

These are your gifts.

Maybe today, you and me will start honoring how we’re built. Celebrating what makes us who we are. And cherishing our wiring.

George Bernard Shaw made the point so much more brilliantly than I can in this moment:

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

…If you’ve been with me on this leadership + personal mastery ride over the 20+ years I’ve been in this game, you know my “To have what very few have you need to do what very few do” brain tattoo.

…By these words I mean that to experience the rewards of the top .001% of producers on the planet [think Mandela + Gandhi, Musk + Branson, Serena + Messi, Da Vinci + Basquiat—and that legendary Starbucks barista at the Phoenix airport named Alya who utterly models possibility], you need to get super-cool with being an outcast.

Because every visionary is first ridiculed before they become revered.

As Kanye says in his masterful song Life of Pablo: “They call every genius crazy.”

And so…

If this post validates the way you would really love to start living

…And if you feel you’re finally ready to express your gifts, declare victory over your fears, feel extraordinarily happy/strong/peaceful and rise to a way of being that’s world-class…

…Then you really should watch this inspirational video because your highest life is waiting for you and days are slipping away.

The 11 Things Life’s All About

Monday, April 24th, 2017

By Robin Sharma

Global Leadership Expert. #1 Bestselling Author. Humanitarian.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the thick of thin things.

So seductive to spend your finest hours climbing mountains that, at the end, turn out to be the wrong ones.

I want you to experience an uncommon life.

One where you feel fully alive, release your chains, display your gifts and help the world.

So kindly remember…

The true leader–the genuine world-builder–lives to the point. Acutely concentrated on the few high priorities that will deliver the life of their greatest aspirations. At the end.

Please find below what I believe to be [as best as I can tell] the 11 most essential pursuits of a legendary life:

#1. Self-honor. This means being true to yourself. Celebrating your virtues. Accepting your flaws. Respecting your values. Doing your dreams. Even if all around you don’t get you.

#2. Personal heroism. The brighter the fire in your belly to achieve something special, the more hurts you’ll have. The more you play out on the jagged edges of your greatest potential, the more fears you’ll face. And the more falls you’ll take. Continuing with what you’ve committed to breeds deep fulfillment. And authentic power.

#3. Genuine connection. We are built to love. Have the bravery to open the heart you have contracted from life’s disappointments. This is how the heroes roll.

#4. Creative expression. I’m a super creative person. Ideas flow relentlessly [often captured on air sickness bags on airplanes]. Ridiculously curious. Adore learning. Home is packed [stacked] with books. My guess is you’re the same. And really dialling in your devotion to express your creativity will fuel your joy. And raise your impact.

#5. Delivery on opportunity. The job of the leader is to get things done. The obsession of the Titan is implementation, not just conversation. Amazing what happens to your self-identity and confidence when you transcend procrastination and do what you need to do. No matter how hard.

#6. Modelling possibility. Yes–I know I say this a lot [because I seriously want this to be a foundational thought for you]: the world needs more heroes–why wait for them when you can become one of them? Each day you are blessed with the chance to show people what positivity/productivity/audacity and dignity look like. Doing so with undefeatable consistency is where the giants among us play.

#7. Experiencing beauty. Exceptional achievement without ongoing enjoyment is an empty win. Yes–own your craft, produce your mastery and exploit your potential. But please: travel widely. Read deep books. Laugh loudly with loved ones. Savor inspirational art. Eat awesome food. And spend time in Nature.

#8. Pushing adventure. The human brain [and spirit] craves novelty. We grow and expand our capacities by doing difficult things. What you most resist is holding your bravery. Take it back.

#9. Scaling humility. So the thing about success is when it shows up, it’s easy to lose the hunger/sincerity/empathy/industry and relatability that got you there. That’s why so many empires fall. And so many icons fail. The one thing you absolutely need to protect as you rise into rare-air is your “boots on the groundedness”. Because a major key to legendary is longevity. And the moment your ego rules your performance is the day you step onto the pathway of irrelevance.

#10. Serving humanity. Most of my adult life I’ve been spreading this core message [long before it became cool]: impact is more valuable than income. And what matters most isn’t only how you live. It’s who you help. Personally–I’ve never been so invested in doing my part to serve as many people as possible. It’s a primary calling for any real A-Player. And I respectfully ask you to do the same.

#11. Intimacy with mortality. Live with death in mind. Not in a sad and depleting way. But with the mindset [and heartset] that you, and I, never know when our last day will show up.

Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius said it so inspirationally: “In the life of a man, his time is but a moment, his being an incessant flux, his sense a dim rushlight, his body a prey of worms, his soul an unquiet eddy, his fortune dark and his fame doubtful.”

So stop overthinking every move. Stop worrying about things that probably will never happen. Stop playing small with your brilliance. Stop being so terrified of reflection. And start living the way the best part of you knows you need to be living.

So at the end, you’ll have been fully human. And genuinely amazing.

If this piece I’ve written for you with an open heart and, hopefully, the utmost of authenticity speaks to you…

…and if you feel you’re finally ready to express your gifts, declare victory over your fears, feel extraordinarily happy/strong/peaceful and rise to a way of being that’s world-class…

…then you really should watch this inspirational video because your highest life is waiting for you and days are slipping away.

And I also strongly encourage you to let go of all your excuses and make the choice that will beautifully [and swiftly] elevate the rest of your life by getting one of the final seats left for my famous event Personal Mastery Academy here.

We’re 96% sold out…

I would really really really love to teach you how the most successful and fulfilled people on the planet do it…

How to Fireproof Your Productivity

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

By Robin Sharma

Global Leadership Expert. #1 Bestselling Author. Humanitarian.

Some serious information on exponential productivity + getting giant ambitions done in this post.

I strongly encourage you to get away from the noise of life and really digest it deeply over the next 5 minutes. [Your potential will applaud you for it].

And so…let’s go…

…All of the billionaires, NBA stars, music legends and ultra-performers I personally advise and who show up at my events are “freaks”.

They just see the world through a very different set of lenses than most people.

They have a very different sequence of values.

And they have a uniquely different series of personal protocols.

And so, like anyone who operates at the highest level of ingenuity, productivity and audacity, they have had to develop a strong interior core that allows them to keep on rising to wow in the face of society calling them strange…

…A-players also understand that their 5 most valuable [and scarce] resources are as follows:

#1: Their Mental Focus. Without extreme concentration on your craft and “vital few” priorities, you’ll spread your brain’s bandwidth over many things. And, ultimately, end up genius at nothing. By dialling in your focus, you’ll leverage the neuroscientific rule that says “neurons that fire together wire together”. [Write that one down. Please.]

Next, your massive focus activates a certain type of brain cell called an oligodendrocyte which then triggers the production of myelin, a fatty tissue that wraps around the neural pathway related to the skill you’re practicing.

Myelin is “The Material of Genius” in many ways as it accelerates your learning speed and heightens your perception. This is how Wayne Gretzky was able to skate to where the puck was going. And how tennis star Serena Williams has done what she has.

Cool, right?

Implementation tactic: Zero Device Days [ZDD]. These are days where you put your phone in a plastic baggie and leave your devices in another room. Carve out a space with no distractions called your Dream Room. Go there. Set an old-school timer for 2-3 hours. And don’t get up until you’ve done real work versus the fake stuff ordinary performers pass off as good.

#2: Their Physical Energy. I was moving swiftly through an airport recently when a woman named Sheila stopped me. “The best thing I ever learned from you Robin Sharma, was your line ‘Energy is more valuable than intelligence.'” She hugged me then kept on going.

It’s true. You can be the smartest person in the room, have a market-making product, carry remarkable talent within you and have a future filled with pure opportunity. But without world-class energy, you’ll never produce world-class results.

You just won’t.

Implementation tactic: Recalibrate your diet. What you eat affects your moods, determines your longevity and drives your energy. No more processed food. Much more vegetables and fruits. Get serious about hydration + supplementation.

If you’re serious about becoming a world-builder, start eating like one.

Oh–and remember: eat less food and you’ll get more done.

#3: Their Personal Willpower. I’ve been doing a lot of quiet reflection on this point. In so many ways, the fundamental trait of outright greatness is self-discipline [the ability to translate your lofty intentions into measurable results].

And all epic performers not only build it each day [because science has taught us willpower is like a muscle: flex it and it grows] but they have discovered how to protect it.

Implementation tactic: Set up “Strengthening Scenarios”. These are situations that you engage in that make you feel uncomfortable for the purpose of making your willpower stronger. Navy Seals put themselves in hard circumstances designed to make them unbreakable. Boxers do the early morning roadwork so they are resilient in the ring.

And all superb producers go to where their discomfort lives. For there your highest power lies.

#4: Their Creative Productivity. Everyone is an artist. Each of us has exceptional levels of creativity within us, longing to see the light of day. But for our finest ideas to show up, we need to set up the conditions for them to come out to play.

Genius-level insights [the kind that cause you to own your field + make history] don’t appear amid stress, distractions, overscheduled days and toxic work spaces.

Make time to get away from your office. Spend more time in nature. Practice daily solitude. Read magazines you ordinarily wouldn’t read. Travel often. Go to art galleries. Prime your creativity. And watch what unfolds.

Then–exploit the creativity that presents itself into high-value productivity. Key move. Because ideas that are not made into results don’t generate success.

Implementation tactic: Write in a journal for 30 minutes every morning, while the rest of the world is asleep. I’ve been teaching this ritual for years and it’s still one of the best methods I know of to harness powerful thinking, download potent visions and capture the creativity that will make you legendary.

#5: Their Time. Oh–this is such a key one. Billionaires and icons are fanatical when it comes to respecting the 24 hours of their day. The best performers would never stand for an hour waiting in line to get into a hip new restaurant. They would never waste an 8-hour flight playing games on their tablet or sleeping under a blanket. The great ones couldn’t imagine being in a beautiful hotel room in a cool city and using those hours to watch the news.

Simple yet perhaps a profound principle: the hours average performers misuse, the excellent producer leverages.

See: how can you lead your field + achieve amazing results + live a remarkable life if you’re not using your days well?

Implementation tactic: The Daily 5 Rule. Five “micro wins” done every day with pristine consistency delivers 150 victories after only one month. Run this protocol daily and after just a year, you’ve achieved 1850 little wins. And as you’ve heard me say so many times: small daily improvements when done consistently over time lead to stunning results.

Because a breathtakingly great life is made not by revolution, but via evolution.

Ok. Hope this content-rich post helps you drive some exponential gains in your exceptionality, productivity and impact.

…Last year I handcrafted an entirely new 2-day live event called Personal Mastery Academy designed to help everyday people achieve the success that previously only the top .0001% of human beings could experience.
