I am an expert in screwing myself up. I can do it in many different ways… I got options. If the old 10,000 hour rule holds to be true, I may have reached Mastery level. Here is one of the quickest and easiest ways to screw yourself up.
I am doing this right now…
Obsess over small, unimportant things.
This is the quickest way to screw up.
I am working on this website here. I don’t even know what I want to accomplish, and yet I am trying to fix everything and nothing. I obsess over small things. Which color should I use for the button? How should I label the “home button”? And so on.
I create stress over small things and forget the bigger picture stuff.
Now you may wonder, how to stop obsessing over small things…
I don’t know. I’d tell you if I would know.
Some smart people say:
Focus on the number one thing you want to achieve
… and forget the rest.
That sounds smart.
In fact, I did this right now.
The number one thing I want to achieve is write and publish my writings on my homepage. I want more great content on my site. By doing that, I want to gradually get more visitors and reach more people and brainwash them and get to world domination.
I guess focusing on the most important thing works in many areas of life.
Some smart people even ask themselves every morning:
What is the number one thing I want to achieve today?
I am too lazy to do that.
Ok, I got off track here.
If you want to screw up quickly, just obsess over all the small things.
That works out every single time.
