Stop checking the news before you do deep work

Letting yourself become distracted with other people’s business before you’ve done anything that actually matters is the biggest recipe for disaster there is.

There is nothing happening in the world that you need to know about before you have worked on your own business or career or life.

Nothing.

It’s crazy to let your success be hijacked by letting yourself scroll news sites or social media or anything at all before the work that will make a difference.

You have to stop doing this.

If we all made a rule of no internet before 11am or no phones before lunch, we would all get so much more done and be so much happier with our progress. Checking the news before doing deep work is just no way to operate.
