Do you want to get a lot more done and work less?
If yes, then I have something pretty cool for you.
I have been trying this “new method” of organizing my days and it works like gangbusters!
I work 2 times less than before and get a lot more done during the day.
And the best part about it is that this is very simple to do for ANYBODY.
There is just one simple concept that you have to integrate into the tools or systems you use everyday and BAM!
More details on that in today's episode

I have compressed years of trials and errors, into easy to consume episodes, to take you from where you are now, to where you want to be.
I wanted to talk to you about a to do list. So you know, everybody has a to do list.
But here's the thing. Do you like this? Should you be using a to do list? That's the question, right?
Some people tell, you know, you shouldn't blah, etc. Well, here's the thing. The way we're using to do lists today is really, really not optimal. I want to tell you the changes that I applied to my to do list, the way I think about stuff and some of the ways that you can actually start using better tools that will help you get more productive.
This is exactly what I'm doing now. And again, I told you today I made some massive progress. It's insane, right?
So here's the thing. What's the problem with a to do list? OK, there are a few problems. Basically, you're writing things just as they are appearing in your brain. OK, so you just write down everything that comes to your mind at that moment. So you list everything you have to do. You end up with this big list with a bunch of things to do.
And the first problem is that they come in some sort of chronological order, the way they actually came to your brain. OK, so where is the problem in that?
The problem is that they didn't necessarily come with some sort of priority. So you have, I don't know, get the groceries and then go pay the bank because otherwise you’ll get evicted or something like this. And that might be the last one you think about, and it’s at the bottom of the list.
So they don't come with, like a set of priority or anything like this. And very often then we start tackling stuff that actually is a low priority just because it was the first thing in our brain.
Second thing is that the thing with the to do list is that this thing is endless and as soon as you do something, then you will add something. And then it will stress you out and this thing is endless.
OK, so if you've been following me for a while, remember that I told you that what you need to do, one thing that you need to do is have one task that you want to work on for today. You have one main objective. So there are benefits to this.

One benefit is a psychological benefit as well, because when you go to bed, you know that you've done what it is that you needed to do. You will sleep like a baby. You're happy, right? It's silly. It's very silly, but it will work like gangbusters, with your energy level and your confidence and all that kind of stuff.
Everything's going to be better because you finished what you had to do. Well, if you have two or three hundred things on the to do list, then yeah it becomes overwhelming.
Also if you have one thing to do, then you just focus on that one thing, that one thing is actually going to get better, right? It's going to be. Much better, and you're going to get better results.
