"Total Focus; Total Enjoyment" by Tynan

I'm thrilled that Tynan is coming to you with two things -- first, he's offering a breakthrough session through GiveGetWin. It's geared around doing more of the kind of excellent work you want to do, becoming more internally focused with your emotions, having a more enjoyable life, building great habits, and producing a lot of value in the process. There's five spots, so check it out now.

Second, we have this wonderful tour-de-force interview: it starts by covering how Tynan made the shift from unfocused to focused, how to derive internal enjoyment from things, useful actionable exercises you can do right now, Tynan's method and mindset for producing creative work consistently, how to set up great habits and an excellent mental and physical work environment, and how to make blogging work and similar endeavors work for you. 

Total Focus; Total Enjoyment by Tynan, as told to Sebastian Marshall

When I turned 30 and I had a minor freak out… I thought, "I'll be 40 in not long, and then 50… there's things I want to do in my life, and they're not happening at this pace."

Before that, I had a general idea of things I wanted to do and have in my life, but I went about in an unstructured way. It was good in a lot of ways. It made be a broad process, but not much depth.

Getting Serious

On Striving For Happiness

Tynan recently wrote how if you have mediocre performance, you will never achieve your goals. Right now I’m being far too mediocre.

For students, our year ends in May. New Year’s marks an arbitrary measure of how to quantify a year for us students. May, however, marks an end as well as a new beginning. Another year of school passed by for me. I am left with 30 credits to graduate, allowing me to graduate a whole year early.

I ponder life as I sit on my patio’s chair drinking tea every day when I wake up and came to the conclusion I must obtain my teacher certification. My psychology degree has the value of an art degree and I can’t imagine a job I would enjoy more than teaching high school English. Worse comes to worse, I’ll end up at a job I enjoy that pays decently.
