1.Understand the difference between deep work and shallow work. Assign the shallow work and focus on the deep work.

2.Have daily deep work sessions in a distraction-free environment.

3.Reach the state of flow in your work. This is reached in the early hours of the morning.

4.Yes, wake up at 5am everyday to get the 5am advantage.

5.Schedule distractions, including email, social media, Whatsapp and texts, on the calendar 4 to 5 times a day.

6.Work only on the 3 most important tasks each workday. This is better than the never-ending todo list approach.

7.Quit depressants and suppressants like alcohol. Follow the one-drink rule for occasional events.

7.Replace diet and exercise with nutrition and training. Long-term lifestyle changes are better than short term sprints of fitness.

9.Every moment, think what makes the most sense to do right now. If you’re doing something else, switch right away.
