Rule #10 For Getting What You Want Out Of Life.

Wednesday, January 03, 2024

You’ll be shocked by the progress you’re able to make.

In Elsie Lincoln Benedict’s book, How To Get Anything You Want — which we’ve been talking about a lot! — Benedict lays out “rules” for… well, getting what you want out of life!

And honestly they all blew my mind when I read them :)

But this rule was particularly striking and practical to me.

"Always start the day by tackling the toughest job first, by grappling with the next worst, next, and so on, reserving the easy pleasant things for the last. This doubles the fun of doing the pleasant one because your state of mind (which is always the important thing) is so much more peaceful and happy. If you will do this, the day will come when the habit of conquering the unpleasant things will become so fixed and firm that the going forth to meet them will be more pleasurable than painful to you — give you a thrill of victory and a sense of personal power the equal of which is never found in any other way."

This is SO important.

It reminds me of the Eisenhower Matrix.

Eisenhower Matrix

Most of us spend our time doing stuff that is urgent… Some of which is important and some of which isn’t important.

But we rarely make time for the really life-changing stuff — the stuff that is IMPORTANT but not urgent. Like building that business. Writing that book. Or pursuing that dream.

It’s hard. Important. Meaningful.

But nobody makes us do it.

So it’s not “urgent”.

Benedict is basically telling us to start EVERY DAY with those things that are important but not urgent — the hard, meaningful stuff.

Imagine how that’d change your life if you even spent one hour every morning working on that stuff over the next year??

It’d be pretty mind-blowing 🙂

Talk soon!
