Success is actually a short race-a sprint fueled by discipline just long enough for habit to kick in and take over.
Everyone has the same amount of time, and hard work is simply hard work. As a result, what you do in the time you work determines what you achieve. And since what you do is determined by what you think, how big you think becomes the launching pad for how high you achieve.
Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls - family, health, friends, integrity - are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.
Don't let small thinking cut your life down to size. Think big, aim high, act bold. And see just how big you can blow up your life.
Until my ONE thing is done, everything else is a distraction.
To ignite your life you must focus on ONE Thing long enough for it to catch fire.
Anyone who dreams of an uncommon life eventually discovers that there is no choice but to seek an uncommon approach to living it.
Taking complete ownership of your outcomes by holding no one but yourself responsible for them is the most powerful thing you can do to drive your success.
When you give your ONE Thing your most emphatic Yes! and vigorously say No! to the rest, extraordinary results become possible.
Extraordinary results happen only when you give the best you have to become the best you can be at your most important work.
The trick to success is to choose the right habit and bring just enough discipline to establish it.
You need to be doing fewer things for more effect instead of doing more things with side effects.
All great achievements are the result of sustained focus over time-all of them.
If everyone has the same amount of time and yet some earn more than others, can we say then say that it's how we use our time that determines the money we make?
It is not that we have too little time to do all the things we need to do , it is that we feel the need to do too many things in the time we have.
Extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you can make your focus.
Find the lead domino, and whack away at it until it falls.
Success is built sequentially. It's one thing at a time.
When we know something that needs to be done but isn't currently getting done, we often say, I just need more discipline. Actually, we need the habit of doing it. And we need just enough discipline to build the habit.
Your work life is divided into two distinct areas - what matters most and everything else. You will have to take what matters to the extremes and be okay with what happens to the rest. Professional success requires it.
A different result requires doing something different.
Multi-tasking is merely the opportunity to screw up more than one thing at a time.
A life worth living might be measured in many ways, but the one way that stands above all others is living a life of no regrets.
The path of mastering something is the combination of not only doing the best you can do at it, but also doing it the best it can be done.
You can do two things at once, but you can't focus effectively on two things at once.
