This is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
Why does it matter?
Because our time is limited and we shouldn’t spend it on trivial things, things that don’t matter to us.
Get rid of all distractions from your life – like work and people you don’t like, projects that don’t motivate you.
Create a system so that you are very focused on whatever matters. One way of doing this is by following a zero based calendar.
Keep your mind free to do things that excite you.
When you keep your cognitive load low you also will create space to try out new things.
Doing new things opens the gate of opportunities and it also makes you happy and slows down the perception of time. Both great outcomes. What more do you want out of life?
