๐Ÿ€ POWER OF SPEED LISTENINGโ€ฆ. ๐ŸŽง๐Ÿ‘‚
Hey Friends,
I would like to share a little secret with you about consuming more content in less time. I have been practising it for few months now while listening to my audio books/ Podcasts/ U Tube Videos /Lectures and few other things at 1.5 X speed. I have found it immensely helpful. To make it happen, Initially you have to start listening it with 1.1X Speed for a week and gradually increase it to 1.2X, 1.3X, & so on for speed listening, week by week to condition your mind . The key check point for moving onto the next speed level is, when it feels to you that you are listening to a normal speed (1X) whereas you are actually at 1,3X speed. This will be a tell-tell sign to move onto the next speed level . I shall be writing a Blog Post soon on โ€œ Joeโ€™s Life Skill Lab โ€ on https://www.joesehrawat.com. So if it still interest you then do follow โ€˜Joeโ€™s Life Skills Labโ€™ and become the master of content consumptions.

๐Ÿ€MY KINDLE HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK : โฌ‡๏ธ
Essentialism - The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown
๐Ÿ€ MY SNIPPETS FROM THE BOOK :- โ€œ Essentialismโ€
While i was reading the book, this Quote really Resonated in me.
If You do not prioritise your life , someone else will
Essentialism in one sentence is a disciplined, systematic approach for determining where our highest point of contribution lies and then making execution of those things becomes almost effortless.
The message in the book is that โ€œ We need to live by design and not by defaultโ€. We are almost all the time stays in a reactionary mode and not able to distinguish the vital few from the trivial many. In essentialism, you explore all your options and spend a little extra time to find out the most essentials. This way you can focus on things which are so much important that they repay the invested efforts by tenfold.
Another concept explained in the book is Trade-Offs as an inherent part of life. Trade-offs are not something to be ignored or decried . They are something to be embraced and made deliberately, strategically and thoughtfully. The cumulative impact of this small change in thinking can be profound.
Essentialists look ahead, plan and prepare for the contingencies. They expects the unexpected, create buffer to prepare for the unforeseen, thus giving themselves some wiggle room for eventualities. Essentialists do not default to Band-Aid solutions. Instead of looking for the most obvious or immediate obstacles, they look for the ones slowing down the progress.
To operate at your highest level of contribution, it requires to deliberately tune in to what is important in here and now. Every second spent worrying about a past or future moment distracts us from what is important in the here and now. You will gain confidence in your ability tp pause, push back, or not rush in. You will feel less and less a function of other peopleโ€™s To-Do Lists and Agendas. Remember that if you do not prioritise your life someone else will.
๐Ÿ€ QUOTE OF THE WEEK : ๐Ÿ‘‡
