131 Actionable Ideas from Ten Books I Wish I Had Read Ages Ago

It’s a 12 min read, and it contains a wealth of wisdom and great advice. My advice? Schedule a re-reading of this article every month, just to make sure it’s always fresh. 

Amongst my favourites:

  • Try as many new things as you can, meet as many new persons as possible
  • Start with why you do stuff, rather than how or what – the why matters more
  • Finish tasks that take you less than 2 min to complete right away
  • Focus on doing one thing at a time – write down whatever is distracting you on a Thought Bucket list, which you can sort out later
  • Never have more than 4 browser tabs open at any one time
  • Listen more
  • Say yes less
  • Rate a task’s importance with this question: “if this is the only thing I do today, would I be happy with myself?”
