Apr 6: One Single Thing

All this modern technology just makes people try to do everything at once...
— Bill Watterson, cartoonist, Calvin & Hobbes

This morning, we're keeping it really simple.

In a world of endless distractions and a constant influx of new ideas on how you should/could spend your time, we want you to do one thing:

Ask yourself: what is the single could I focus on throughout the next month that would, without a doubt, bring me closer to what I want?

Now look at your Summit you made when you signed up this month. 

Do they match? Are you clear on what you REALLY want this month?

Take a few this morning. Check-in with yourself and make sure you know why you are here.

All of us are doing this DED again for some reason. For some of us, it was to continue getting ahead with a project, for others, it was to continue spending time focused on ourselves.

But we all had a reason to say YES and the more concrete we are in that reason, the more willingly we will be able to cut the distractions and focus on the things that matter.

None of Damn Early Days (and success for that matter) is about getting ahead of anybody else or having more than others.

It's about being who you are and what you are, and being as good as possible at it – without falling prey to all of the other things that draw you in and distract you.

It's about setting out where you want to go and, more importantly, committing to doing the things that will get you there.

As we settle into this April cycle of DED, it's time to look at that.

It's time to really look at our Summit, that one thing that we know we must do to get where we want to go. Let go of the rest of the distractions. So. Are you clear? If not, this morning is time to get clear.

Then, enjoy this morning jam...
