There’s no Genie in a Bottle, but answering these 4 questions in this order can transform you into an invaluable resource. Each questions builds on the next. While simple, these questions can transform your life:

  2. Is there something I should stop doing? Look at your daily routine, your weekly activities, your monthly commitments. If you’re like most people, you’re probably doing things that aren’t just useless, but counterproductive. You’ll get a huge burst of productivity when you limit (or stop) these activities.
