Wow, these comments on productivity

Ramit Sethi

Man oh man.

Yesterday I asked you to send me examples of what a super-smooth day would look like. AND what’s going to happen if you don’t change anything.

One of the things I really like is how brutally honest people are.

For most people, a smooth day doesn’t involve a private jet. It’s actually surprisingly achievable things like waking up to a breakfast you cooked the night before. Or having a matching outfit ready for you to slip into after your shower.

For me, it’s having someone pack my suitcase if I’m going on a trip. Totally achievable!

I’m also struck by how many people are resigned to next year being the same as this year. Dude, it’s like they’re an 88-year-old guy named Walter just counting down the days. Jesus, guys. Come on.

You can find a list of 175+ comments here.

From reading those comments, you can attack a random tactic here or there…but I think it’s more valuable to do a full-frontal attack.

Just like ancient armies, which wouldn’t try to break through the window of a castle. They’d lay siege to the front gate.

And when it comes to productivity, one of the most life-changing skills we can build is to follow through.

To become the person who finishes what they start, no matter what gets in the way.

Not dabbling in this and that. Not excitedly starting something, only to let it die with a whimper when you get distracted and it gets hard.

Who wants to live like that?

If you can learn the skill of finishing, it affects every part of your life. It’s like an unshakable foundation that supports you in anything you want to do.

What would it mean to set your mind to something (eating better, working out, starting a business, etc.) and know you would do it?
