POINT #1: Basically you don’t have time to fuck around wasting time on things that aren’t moving you forward in your life.

  • Something we are all challenged by is when we should help others and do what they want.
  • The challenge is how to balance what you want and what others want. Your wife, kids, family, friends, boss, clients, etc.

POINT #2: If someone is calling you saying I really want you to come and drink for 12 hours, is that what will move you forward?

  • Always ask yourself if what you are going to do is important to you or to the other person?
  • Ask yourself what is important to you and stick to it no matter what.

POINT #3: It IS more important to be striving towards who you want to be and what you want in your life then it is to keep other people happy.

  • I make time for the people and the things that are really important to me, I don’t have time for bullshit that doesn’t serve me.
  • Identify what is important to you and do heaps more of that. Don’t do the things that aren’t important just to keep someone else happy.


  • Are you ruthlessly committed to the important things in you life?
  • Your relationship
  • Your children
  • Your career
  • Your health and fitness
  • Your emotional health
  • Your spiritual fitness.


  • Develop the commitment to yourself and what is important to you so that you prioritise those actions more than the need to make out her people happy.
  • Find everything in each of your 4 life areas that you’re ruthlessly committed to. It should be a long list, write it all down.
