I’m teaching a LIVE workshop later this November to teach you how to make ANY goal stick.
Look - the truth is, most people never come close to achieving their goals - and it’s not because they’re not smart enough, or not worthy. It’s because they aren’t using the right strategies to stick to doing the work that’s going to lead to their success. Make no mistake, achieving goals is a PROCESS - that means you can learn it and get better at it. To join me and register your seat, go to live.impacttheory.com.
Being able to focus and think critically and strategically seems to become more challenging on a daily basis. With social media algorithms hacking your attention and focus and everyday life happening at record speeds, you have to become intentional and almost overly protective of your brain. Tom is executing and delivering at an elite level 365 days a year (366 on a leap year) and make no mistake this is by design. Today, he is sharing the 4 main ways he cares for and nurtures his cognitive skills. Taking care of your brain requires that you are aware of all the ways your mental performance is impacted. Tom is sharing exactly what he does on a daily basis as a way of life to keep leveling up and outperforming the competition.
