1. Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time.
Every hour you spend sleeping is one fewer hour you get to truly spend living. One hour a day is more than 2 weeks of extra time, every year. Obviously, taking it too far isn’t healthy, but a 4-6 hour night adds 1-2 months to your conscious living every year.
“Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time.” ~ Louis Gray
2. Be Childish.
Never take yourself too seriously, life is too short. Enjoy every moment, and don’t block your own path. Spend your time with making memories and friends.
“If it seems a childish thing to do, do it in remembrance that you are a child.” ~ Frederick Buechner
3. Acknowledge the inevitability of death.
Sooner or later we will all die, fighting for survival is ultimately a losing battle. Stop fretting, and focus on every moment you have in the present.
“This is your life, and it’s ending one second at a time.” ~ Fight Club
4. Money is less valuable than time.
There is no way to gain more time in life, and the clock never ceases. Stop trading your time for more money than you need, if your time is more valuable.
“Time is money says the proverb, but turn it around and you get a precious truth. Money is time.” ~ George Gissing
5. Ignore the little things.
Do only the 20% most import things or those that you feel will have the biggest return. The time and energy you save, can be spent on the things you really want to do.
“20 percent of focused effort results in 80 percent out come of results!” ~ Vilfredo Pareto
6. Never be afraid to challenge the ideas.
There is no reason to let anything stop you, particularly yourself. Rules are roadblocks with 3 options: follow the rules, break the rules, find a way another way around the rule. Choose your own path in life, and never stop learning something new.
“The Way of Mastery is to break all the rules—but you have to know them perfectly before you can do this; otherwise you are not in a position to transcend them.” ~ Aleister Crowley
