4 Vital Keys for Developing Mastery in Anything‏

1. Give Your Life to Something:

This is another way of saying, dont be a jack of all trades and king of none. If you really want to excel in life, find your true passion and pour yourself into it.
2. Break Mood Based Decisions:

Breaking mood based decisions, means being able to turn off the TV at 9:52 pm right before the detectives of Law & Order SVU reveal who is responsible for the homicide

Once you develop this strength, to not make your decisions solely on the pleasure principle, your life will become available to you as a tapestry to paint your masterpiece on.

3. Dont Concentrate on Results:

if you love to write, just write, dont worry about selling a million copies.Forget about results and focus on just doing, just marching on.
4. Dont Worry About Survival:

This, I know is easier said than done. What I want to clarify before I delve into this key factor, is that I am not encouraging you to drop out of school, quit your job, dump your family or run away to the Himalayas. There is usually never a need to make such drastic changes and these changes are usually just romantic ideas.
Trust that life will be there to take care of you and go for it.

Be more productive‏

Most people struggle to be as effective and efficient as we’d liketo be. It’s why we always hear people asking for more hours in a day. Around the world, “I need more time!” is probably uttered millions of times each day.

Here are three time management secrets to help you get more done.

1) Plan your week – When do you plan? Some people do it first thing in the morning; they make a list of the things they need to get done for the day. A better strategy is to spend some time during the weekend (or Monday morning) planning the upcoming week.

You can then assess your goals, the steps you need to accomplish them and plan your week according to the urgent and not so urgent projects and tasks.

2) Let go of perfection – We often spend way too much time on tasks that really don’t matter that much. Perfection rarely exists and trying to perform less important tasks perfectly wastes your valuable time. Find a “good enough” balance and save your focused attention and quest for perfection for those tasks that really matter.

3) Avoid efficiency traps – Efficient and productive are not synonymous – they’re two very different words. You can be efficient and busy and not really get anything done. The secret to time management is to focus on tasks that result in accomplishing something that maters – your goals. Running errands, cleaning your desk, filing and so forth are busy tasks that make you feel busyand efficient but they’re not enhancing your productivity. You’re not achieving your goals. Time management secrets are easy to embrace when you’re excited about your goals and you have a step by step process to achieve them.
