So let me share some of my favorite lines from this interview: “I had to be more selective with the work I was doing. More selective with which 100% tasks were the most important. And it was this that allowed me to earn more than twice what I was earning and start working half as much. It was this which allowed me to get into a good routine, make a more effective morning routine. So I was filling my own cup – mind, body, and spirit. It was this that allowed me to spend more time with my family and be more focused and more present when doing so. And it was this that forced me to hone in on what I bring to the table. What is my best work, what someone is going to pay me for, and that I’m going to be a value? And it was also this that allowed me to hone in and figure out who my ideal client was, how many of these ideal clients I could work with. And it’s been an iterative process since then. It’s evolved, it’s constantly changing. It’s not set in stone.” – Matthew Turner “I was like doing these productivity tools and hacks in order to achieve something. What I wanted to achieve, I have no idea. But I think that is the problem with personal development. We can get caught in that rabbit hole and we hear something that we love the sound of and do it so we can achieve something but that defeats the purpose more often than not. So during this period, I just stopped trying to hack everything and understand everything. I just started doing these healthy things because they’re healthy. And I actually got a great deal, more benefit out of them because I was doing them for the right reasons.” – Matthew Turner “Instead of telling yourself, ‘I always make bad decisions,’ you can start saying ‘Sometimes I make bad decisions but many times I also make good decisions.’ So that mind shift will allow you to feel a little more confident”. – Dr. Rozina
