Show Notes & Links



  • Turn off technology when it's time to focus on content
  • Develop a verbal memory so you don't have to re-read what you just wrote
  • Sleep with earplugs if you wake easily due to noise
  • Sleep with music at low volumes (like Prescott has done since 1999)
  • Test different methods; don't blindly follow gurus
  • Alternate hard days with lighters days regarding fitness training. Use those recovery days.


  • Stick to your daily routines
  • Go through mental routines first thing in the morning (gratitude, etc.) before you get out of bed
  • Serve someone else early in the day
  • Read daily and track/remark on what you read
  • Block your day into half-day chunks
