"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.

Unrelentingly Competent

On SEBASTIAN MARSHALL

Thought of the day:

All image, accouterment, support functions, and particular tactics pale in importance to being unrelentingly competent.

--> Competence means (1) being an expert at your core skill/skillset, constantly working to maximize it, and being one of the very best at what you do.

--> Competence means (2) being able to execute and produce results in a prompt, timely, reliable way using your expertise from #1.

If you've got this competence down -- and you work relentlessly to improve it -- then you'll be cut a lot of slack on the rest of the details. If you don't have this competence down or let your skills stagnate instead of grow, all sorts of nonsense is going to weigh heavily on you -- that wouldn't weigh heavily on the more competent man.
