The Simplest Ideas Cut Through

If it sticks, listen

The media is obsessed with “cut-through” — As soon as something connects, they throw everything at it. Media execs see a little bit of popularity, and strap a rocket to it.

When it comes to our lives, what cuts through? When it does, do we strap a rocket to it? If you consume any form of self-improvement content, you’re searching for something. So when something sticks, give it the chance to make a difference. Don’t just dive back into the vat of content.

For example, I heard Charlie Gilkey on the Beyond The To-Do List podcast. This stuck:

“Take a look at your schedule from the last 2 weeks, those are your priorities right there, like it or not”.

That’s making me consider what I actually spend my time doing vs what I want to spend my time doing.

I want to learn. I try to grow. I’d love to help.
