It’s hard to believe, but I haven’t posted an article in 2016.
Well…to be honest, a LOT has happened since then. I started working out of the T-Hub facility, India’s largest startup collaboration center, playing a very active role in helping shape its culture and destiny as well. I’ve networked and connected with, over the course of the last few months, literally hundreds of others who’ve expressed goodwill, insight, and joy for the work I’m doing. This includes diplomats, college heads, and dignitaries from all over the world, as well as other startups and peers throughout India.
I’ve gotten almost overwhelming excitement and intrigue regarding what I’m doing. I am so very thankful for this. It’s been a total blast.
However, it has been an overwhelming phase. I’ve been literally forced to upgrade the capacity with which I function literally by one or even two orders of magnitude higher than I have. I’m scoping out a collaborative effort that will involve dozens or hundreds of people…and to be honest, a great many connections and opportunities I’ve cultivated are currently laying untapped, still laying in the cracks.
I’ve chalked it up to the learning process on how to function at 10-100X capacity. And…this learning now comes with a commitment to RUTHLESSLY attempt to plan LESS, not more..and develop a daily script that takes this into account. That’s right. I am committed to the principle of simplifying life and reducing time and energy working to get more done.So far? My energy is peaking. My clarity is returning. My consistency is increasing. I’ve experienced the effectiveness of this approach in the past, and I’m committed on a whole new level to this process. By building in deliberate time and space into my daily routine, I’ve noticed I’m able to get more done at a higher quality. And…I’m able to pace my work out for the long haul.
And…I’m in it for the long haul — I have no plans to do anything but this type of work for the rest of my life. The challenge is the same — I don’t have the luxury of failing fast or dropping my plans and trying something new. In any event, I’m ready to start working in a whole new way.
