A few gems:
“…ambiguity is the enemy of execution.”
“So once you decide what you really want to work on, what is that specific concrete goal, then we need a deadline.”
“(Deadlines) help me keep things simple.”
“…one of the keys for me to stay consistently motivated is to make sure that I’m doing the simple things that make the biggest difference in terms of my energy, my health, and my cognitive prowess.”
Skip to the 14:30 mark to listen to him embellish these five suggestions:
— Identify potential problems in advance.
— Always know your next step.
— Impose an artificial deadline.
— Look for an alternative way forward.
— Try something totally different.

How could I?
I merrily traipse along sharing good side hustler stuff with you and it took me 280+ posts before I shared something from Marie Forleo?
I’m even reading her Everything is Figureoutable book and it didn’t dawn on me that she should have been one of the first people this blog should have showcased.
If I didn’t have to live with myself, I’d fire me ASAP.
She shares resources via 9 categories, each of which could qualify as an online course.
