The problem with old ways of planning
Nobody wakes up thinking, “I’m going to spend today feeling distracted, busy, and not work on things I actually care about.”
It happens because our brain is still playing catch-up to the rapid changes in the way we work.
A few decades ago, there was a clear boundary between work and life. Not anymore.
With the rise of knowledge work that has become mostly online and remote due to COVID19, all boundaries have dissolved.
You write emails while sitting in a restroom. Take calls while preparing lunch for your kids. Listen to podcasts while driving.
In this new boundary-less life, the way we used to plan — with scattered post-its and to-dos — leads to a busy, but unproductive life.
Without a system to keep you accountable, you could spend a year feeling busy without making progress on goals you care about.
That blog post you’ve been wanting to write and publish is still undone. Why? Is it because you don’t care about it? Or, because other things that “seem” important keep taking precedence over it?
If it’s the latter, then the good news is: the solution is simple.
You need a system that helps you focus on what’s important and keeps you accountable.
This is what we’ll build in this course.
