Get more done, have more fun

My friends and business colleagues often ask me, “How do you constantly produce so much stuff, ideas, stories, images, books, products and speeches?!”. The answer is simple. I consume this delicious cocktail, straight up daily, which let’s me get more done and have more fun!

Start with ample sleep, for me it’s 8 hours.
+
Eat often, at least five small meals with protein daily.
+
Set accountable goals, daily (one or two is fine).
+
Meditate and do deep breathing, even if it’s 5 minutes.
+
Pay attention to what you experience.
+
Hang out with people smarter than you.
+
Exercise, for me it’s tennis.
+
Read, books, labels, faces, bumper stickers, the WSJ.
+
Find patterns.
+
Connect dots.
+
Journal good ideas.
+
Goof off.
+
Ask questions that feel stupid.
+
Whip through magazines, daily (notice headlines, photos and ads).
+
Limit hard problem solving to two-hour sessions at a time, break for food, fun or exploring.
+
Act goofy.
+
Watch spectacular performances.
+
Observe super successful people.
+
Push yourself 20% more than your comfort zone welcomes.
+
Enjoy the fruits of your production.
