Review, Learn, and Adjust

TL;DR

  • Take a day to isolate yourself. Write down a list of 101 general things you want to accomplish in your lifetime (ie: make wine, move to europe).
  • You can’t focus on 101 goals at the same time, so limit them down to 5 goals that you want to achieve in the next year
  • Write down a specific goal statement that is structured like this: “I will *insert specific goal* by *insert date*
  • ie: “I will move to Portugal by September 1st, 2019”
  • Break down your larger goal into smaller goals that you can complete daily/weekly (examples given above)
  • Focus on staying consistent and getting 1% better every day. If you do this, you’ll be 378% better after one year
  • Learn from your mistakes, update your plan, and continue testing out different paths until you find the one that leads to your destination
