Below are a list of random thoughts, inspirations, and observations recorded through my journey to become an achiever. This will be one easy place to track them all, letting me revisit them as needed.


#1: Nothing Funny

Eric Thomas shows us the real reason he speaks and the power of using your platform to change the lives of those who need hope! Honesty is sometimes the best policy.

#2 You Owe You

How many times have you made a guarantee to yourself in your life? We will quickly call a company after their product breaks before the guarantee, but what do you do when you break your own warranties?

#3 Give Yourself Permission to be Disliked

This article has changed my perspective on the world – what an incredible view and honest article.

Thoughts & Observations

#1 Relationships and You

Many positives are commonly mentioned about relationships – support, love, friendship, and more – while one I believe is left out. That one thing? The amount you grow and learn about your own character, helping you to become not only a better partner but a better individual too!

#2 Doing Something Lessons

Sometimes just doing something before you actually have the full plan ready results in better focus to grow the plan, or the fail fast mentality of projects you don’t actually enjoy – meaning you don’t spend a bunch of time planning for something you find out you dislike.

#3 Habits are key

The person you are, the success you bring or happiness you have doesn’t come in spikes. Instead, they are like compound interest, gradually growing into the high levels you eventually see. This gives more reason to not procrastinate, but break down big tasks into smaller daily ones (like do 1 hour of training a day vs 4 on Friday).

#4 Actions Always Speak Like Pictures Describe

People in your life can tell you how much they respect you, care about you, appreciate you, etc. These declarations are great and an important part of friendships, yet it is always the actions that either dispel or backup these statements that truly matter.

#5 Spending Time > Spending Money

You can always do more to increase the amount of money you have in bank accounts, but there is an account that decreases every second. Your time balance. There is nothing more important than giving the people you love in your life some of those ticking seconds.
