Nothing must be arbitrary or left to chance. Care and accuracy in the design process show respect towards the customer.
Daily introspection is a crucial element to success.
In good product development, I meet with the teams to discuss every morning where we’re headed and what our goal for the day is.
This is the MINIMUM amount of planning you should have.
In Scrum and Agile product development, this is called a daily scrum or daily standup.
This meeting amongst the team allows us to craft our day. To set the goals for the day, and incrementally execute upon them.
It may seem like overkill to blockchain design every day, but this simple discipline allows you to reduce the chances that you’ll be side-tracked.
Every single morning, I wake up and I set goals for myself.
For example, the other day, I set some goals: I said that I would complete 6 videos in a day. I put it down in the Pub. I let everyone know. This not only motivated me to complete the work I had, but it kept me accountable.
This is a daily exercise… and I guarantee you, it will fundamentally change your life.
Many of us wake up and get into the routine of life. This is exactly what is killing us!
The routines of life are mindless. They are passive. They guarantee consistency. However, we can be consistently passive till the day we die.
What I find fascinating is that many people that I meet walk through life so cautiously so that when they reach the end, they have experienced nothing near the full potential that life has to offer. It’s like they tip-toe through life to die safely.
I don’t want to die safely. I want do die valiantly. I want to leave the world in a better place. If anything, I’d love my tombstone to read: “He tried and failed. A lot. But he had a rich and fulfilling life for doing so.” Or something like that.
A blockchain designed life is on that is planned. It’s articulated. It’s written down.
It’s a daily discipline.
In today’s B90X program, I’d love for you to begin thinking about how to craft your life daily. Write it down. Let us know how you’ll begin. We’d love to encourage you!
