Focus On Yourself
Focusing on yourself is one of the most difficult things to do in the information age.
It’s easy to get distracted by what other people are doing, or what people think of you. Focusing on yourself means to let go of all the things you can’t control, and to take action on the things you can.
At first, I learned to focus on myself in the gym and only see my own improvements. More recently, I focused on myself this past recruiting season.
The phrase living in your head rent-free perfectly summarizes this. If nothing lives in your head rent-free it’s powerful. It’s those time periods where I’m focusing on nothing but myself that are most productive.
