Man Up! Episode #14: 2 Lessons in Success from The Practicing Mind




Practice for the Sake of Practice.

  1. Adjust your goals.

Instead of trying to create something, bring something to fruition in the future, focus on learning. Focus on learning skills, mastering those that you need to acquire to make that goal a possibility.

2. Focus on the process, and not the end result.

Get good at practicing. And not just practicing to create something, but the actual act of practicing. Learn to love it.

The 3 Challenges from the Podcast:

  1. Go slower.
  2. Focus on the process, on learning, not on the end result you want to achieve.
  3. Read 37 pages per day, or 250 pages per week.
