Lately, I’m working on doing more in less time. In working smarter and not harder. Especially now that I’ve kids and have less time than I did when I was in my 20’s.
In search of valuable content, I’ve bumped into live streams of people who’re working or studying 12 hours a day. This is counterintuitive in what I was talking about earlier. In getting more done in less time. But one of those videos got my attention. A young man in his early 20’s, who is studying for 12 hours a day for a year-long and has a big following on Youtube and Discord. His video about why he’s doing it was pretty interesting to me. He was talking about the growth vs. the fixed mindset and referred to a TED talk about it.
The concept is pretty simple to understand. If you want to grow you look at the errors you’re making, learn deeply about why it’s an error, and correct it. By praising focussed time, following processes, working with a clear why in mind, you can work smarter and more effective with a clear path in mind.
And don’t forget to keep doing it. Be consistent and persevere!
