If you've been keeping up with me, you are probably aware of my read 12 books this year goal. It is going well and I am thoroughly enjoying it. My latest read was 'The ONE Thing', a book so practical and perfect for anyone seeking increased productivity and/or loves personal growth.
Now this blog post is not going to be a review of The ONE Thing, but that book is a huge inspiration. The ONE Thing is unlike (and superior) to many other books in the sense that it has a very clear and unmistakable message. A theme that runs prominently throughout every single page of the book. And that theme is focus. Deliberate, purposeful focus.
Even before reading The ONE Thing, I have really started to appreciate how vital finding focus is. Going back into 'work mode' after the summer comes with the reality that there are a lot of things to do. And I'm sorry, but no matter how much we try, we cannot do them all.
The title of the page you are now reading is based on a quote by Henry Ford. You may have heard it before: "Whether you think you can or you think you can't - you're right.
This quote can be very empowering, especially if you find yourself clinging to doubt.
What comes to your mind when you read the above quote? What thoughts and feelings does it provoke? When a lot of people read the above quote, they think about self-confidence - a person's confidence in their ability. They also think about willpower and the idea that things will or will not happen based on your attitude.
The thought that you can control the results you get...just by harnessing your conviction...is a pretty mind-blowing thought.
Know that you’ll have to miss a night's worth of sleep soon? Here are ways to survive pulling an all-nighter & how to recover the day after.
1. Get Plenty of Sleep Before-Hand
This is a pretty simple tip, but if you know that you're going to miss a night of sleep soon, the best idea is to stock up on sleep beforehand. In the days leading up to your all-nighter get a good amount of sleep and make sure you are well rested. You wouldn't want to start your all-nighter already sleep derived. If you are really tired before your all-nighter you will probably crash and not be able to stay awake. If you skip sleep on the nights leading up to it, you will probably feel the effects of an all-nighter much stronger.
