The basic education missing from every school.
Being productive is something we're expected to be from the moment we enter education to the day we die. Yet, theories and skills needed to be productive remain absent from our formative years. If we’re lucky, some of these skills develop over time. We learn the hard way about time management. Get a few nods on how to achieve goals. This gives us a small insight into what we need to do to find success. Yet, despite our best efforts most of us never find the same success we see top performers achieving. We sit for days on end, frustratingly trying to figure out what they're doing different, and coming up short. It’s like they instinctively know something you don’t!
“If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” - Issac Newton
We know, that’s how we felt. Even after all our research to create the SELF journal we weren't quite there. This was when we realized a singular truth, hidden behind every top performer's explanation of success. What it all boiled down to.
If you’re not growing, you’re losing.
This was the missing piece to uncapped productivity we’d been hunting! Doing wasn’t the problem. We put in the work, no problem. We made the connections. We invested the time and resources. So why wasn’t everything falling into place?
It was because we weren’t optimizing our efforts. We weren’t learning from what we were doing wrong. Because of this, we weren’t growing. We were going through our to-do list and getting endless things done. It felt productive, but we ever stopped to ask ourselves, "Was this actually providing the value?"
Even if we'd have asked. How would we know what to do instead? We were completing a task list made up of all the best advice from people who’d done what we wanted before. Growth was the key. Until we understood the theories and developed the foundational skills, no advice would catapult us over the plateau. We needed to grow!
There was no singular place all this information existed. The ones who figured it out do so from reading countless books. Ask any top performer for a book recommendation, and they’ll give you a list as long as their leg. They show off their libraries on YouTube, tout their reading output of- 2, 3, even 5 books a week! Must be nice!
The question is, which books? What singular lesson in an entire book is going to get you the most return? Well, that's why we created the first of its kind SELF Mastery course.
This takes all the lessons learned from our research and packs it into a single productivity course. But don't take our word for it. Get a taste of it now in our FREE WEBINAR! Take the first step to mastering the skills they didn't teach you in school, but they sure should have!
