Ever get to the end of a week and think to yourself…
“Man, I worked hard every day but…what did I even get done?”
The feeling of “literally where did the time go” and “at this rate things will take forever, and I don’t have forever” is not uncommon.
You’re not alone: I’ve talked to a lot of creators over the past couple of decades, and this feeling is normal… and it’s getting worse:
- Instagram’s full of ‘alphas’ in ‘lamboz’.
- Twitter’s full of threads about how 2yos are becoming trillionaires.
- LinkedIn’s full of humble-brags in navy blazers.
“Oh man, maybe I should be doing more of ______!”
Stop. Hey, come back to me. Focus.
Listen: Eating three uncut pizzas at once is gross.
You’re not an animal. Select a pizza. Slice it up. Then eat 1–2 slices a day during mealtimes.
If you’re going to ship all of the amazing projects trapped inside you, eat work like you eat pizza in polite company.
This week’s challenge is going to help you do that. Please do it:
Challenge for the week: This weekend, make a 4-step list for the month. Give 1 week to each (too heavy? Reduce the size of the list!) Now break each week into 5 slices, one for each weekday (too heavy? Reduce the size of the list!) Each day, only eat that slice of work and forget about eeeeverything else.
