What’s your Real Thing?
The real work. Not the one that you’re supposed to be doing, but the one you must be doing.
That novel sitting unfinished in your desk drawer. That movie. That startup venture you’ve thought so much about but haven’t started.
What are you running away from?
I will give you a secret. But don’t tell anyone because it’s a secret.
Getting what you want from life is actually extremely easy.
All you need to do is focus on it, let go of anything that’s not it, and don’t wake up until you’re done.
That’s it! The magic is that there’s no magic. People who get shit done sit down and do the shit they want to get done.
Shut off all the noise, throw away your smartphone, disconnect the Wi-Fi router, do anything that will get you 1, 2, 3 hours of complete solitude. Every. Single. Day.
That’s when you get to meet yourself. That’s when all bullshit excuses stop working.
That’s when you get to do the Real Thing.
