I recently ran across this great quote on Tim Ferriss’ blog: “People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.” – Steve Jobs
Just this morning I was chatting with my yoga teacher about the ups and downs of being self-employed and told him, “It’s not that I need more time, I just need more focus. It’s incredible how much I can accomplish in an hour when I just sit still.” With that fresh in my mind, this week’s newsletter clocked in at about 1.5 hrs total - a record.
