Leadership Lessons from James Clear
James Clear | “What Matters More Than Your Talents” delivered by JEFF BEZOS
I rarely feel rushed when I am working on the most important thing. The act of making progress on what matters—even if it's small—is calming. It's such a simple idea: Simply do the most important thing first and you rarely feel like you don't have enough time for what matters.
Success is largely the failures you avoid. Health is the injuries you don't sustain. Wealth is the purchases you don't make. Happiness is the objects you don't desire. Peace of mind is the arguments you don't engage. Avoid the bad to protect the good.
Three simple ways to get more of what you want in life: 1) Be kind and pleasant to others. 2) Ask for what you want. 3) Follow up.
3 ideas to start your year: 1) You don't rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. 2) Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. 3) Decide the type of person you want to be. Prove it to yourself with small wins.
