  1. Eliminate 90% of all of your “social obligations.” They are very time consuming and produce very little return on your time investment. Limit social time to one-hour per day and no more than 2–3 hours per day on the weekend.
  2. Rise early each day. When you give yourself time in the morning you can organize your day, read, review your current performance, and develop new business ideas. (The peak creative time is between 4–7am). Yes we are serious it’s that early.
  3. Start telling the people in your life “No” 70% of the time. This includes family, friends, children and spouses. Explain to them that you are focused on building a sustainable brand and this requires a significant portion of your time. Tell them it’s short term and that once the ball is rolling you will have time for them.
