The low information diet

“I never watch the news, and have never bought a newspaper in 5 years.
I check business email for 1 hour each Monday. I never check voicemail when abroad.
What if someone has an emergency? It doesn't happen. My contacts now know I don't respond to emergencies, so the emergencies somehow don't exist or don't come to me. Problems, as a rule, solve themselves or disappear if you remove yourself as an information bottleneck and empower others.

Increased output necessitates decreased input. Most information is time-consuming, negative, and irrelevant to your goals.”

Taken from The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss

Take control

Focus has to be the most important skill to learn.

We have a piece of glass in our pocket which has access to over a billion people, and millions of companies begging for our attention.

How are we able to get important things done?

Take control.

Take control of your distractions. Take control of your mind. Take control of your body, environment, relationships and anything else that causes you to lose focus.

Make a plan and write things down. Focus on them. Destroy your distractions.

Take control.
