How The Next Generation Can Make A Straight Line Toward Their Goals

Distraction. Overwhelm. ADHD. Lack of focus. Confusion… These are all emotions & feeling we experience on a daily, if not hourly basis… and with so much information being processed, and so many things trying to take our attention - it’s oftentimes hard for us to focus on  a singular goal we’re trying to reach

Do you ever feel off course...
Does brain fog rule your days...
Do you feel like sometimes you're walking around with no direction or sense of self...

It's kind of like Jack Sparrow and his compass that continually spins, for he never knows exactly where he desires to head...

And this is where essentialism and a powerful question come into play

what’s the one thing I can do today, right now, that such by doing it, all else becomes either easier or unnecessary
- Gary Keller

This question helps to keep us focused on our goals, and forming the thoughts, behaviours, actions, and habits that will see us head toward it without being distracted by other menial tasks

For example, if our goal is to make the rep team - what’s the one thing I can do today that makes all else easier and moves me closer toward that goal…

It could be training hard for that day’s session and ensuring your nutrition & recovery is up to standard… it could be ensuring you get your 8 hours sleep so you’re well recovered and can perform optimally…

If you do the things that actually move you towards your goals, if you believe the things about yourself and the world that actually move you towards you goals in a measurable way, you will constantly make progress
- Tom Bilyeu

And therein lies the secret power behind asking ourselves this “one thing” questions… it helps us focus solely not that which moves us toward our goals and disregard all else

And so, once you’ve define the experience/goal that you want to move toward, each and everyday ask what’s the one thing that you can do that will help you take that next step toward it...
