Weekly One Thing - (Cheating Royal Riddle, Digital Health Rules, etc...)

Savvy Saturdays (10/30/21)

Savvy Idea: Set your one thing to focus on for the week so you can prioritize and make the week a win.

Recently, I started to implement a weekly routine to figure out one thing that would define success if I completed it for the week.

This routine has helped me tremendously in making progress in focusing and planning.

I find that even going through the process helps organize my tasks and helps me prioritize so that after I finish my one thing, I know what next task I should try to complete.

I didn’t come up with this on my own though.

This was inspired by the book, The One Thing, written by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan.

As someone who is trying to create more discipline in life, this method has definitely helped me measure out my energy and not take too big of a bite out of the endless tasks I have to do while being able to find satisfaction weekly when I complete the one thing.

Questions to ponder: 🤔

  • What are the many things that you have to do in your life?

  • What is the one thing that you can focus on that would help you be most successful?

Weekly Update

Personal life stuff… 🔔

Hello friends,

Greetings from Austin! 👋 Let’s jump right in!

This past week I definitely needed to take my own advice to schedule rest.

I packed my schedule spending time with a lot of people that I ended up not having much alone time to destress or finish up work, ending with lots of late nights.

Of course, some of those late nights, I ended up watching movies, because YouTube kept giving recommendations of movie recaps in 15-20 mins, and that fed my hunger for story, so I watched:

  • Moneyball (1st time) - love the aspects of leadership, difficulty building and maintaining a team, as well as making decisions on what’s important in life.

  • Knives Out (2nd time) - a beautiful masterpiece of a movie with the right level of tension, mystery, and drama.

  • As well as The Platform (1st time) with some friends - an interesting movie that left me with more questions than answers.

Anyways, here are several pictures from this past week: 📷

Thanks for checking in on the newsletter!

If y’all can be praying for good rest and discipline this coming week, as I want to try and wake up early and workout again! (Those early mornings are worth it)

Let me know how I can be praying for y’all!

With that, stay safe 😷, keep it savvy 😎, and I’ll see y’all in the next update 😊

Eric
