Ever since last weekend’s email (“sorry”),
I have received so many emails acknowledging
the importance of self-mastery.
Perhaps you are one of them.
But many have also cited reasons why they
failed to make self-mastery their top priority.
The most common one is the lack of time.
But what if I tell you that your breakthrough
in your career/relationships/health only
requires 15 minutes a day?
I arrived at this number based on the
1% rule shared by James Clear,
author of New York Times bestseller
According to James, if we improve 1%
every day, we will see a 37% growth in
that area a year from now.
37% more leads.
37% more income.
37% more happiness.
37% more (whatever you want).
And all you need to do is just invest 1%
of your time every day which is equivalent
to about 15 minutes.
And don’t tell me you can’t find 15 minutes!
Cut down your social media time.
Cut down your email checking time.
Cut down your unnecessary meetings.
Cut down your Netflix time.
Do any of the above and you can easily
find 15 minutes of time to work on your
You can even incorporate
personal development within
your day to day routine!
While you are drinking your morning coffee.
While you are showering.
While you are queuing for things.
While you are commuting.
While you are waiting for people.
You can EASILY find 15 mins every day.
And the returns is just frigging amazing.
So as we approach 2022, think about
ONE SKILL/QUALITY you like to develop
that will have huge positive impact to your
Once you decide on that skill (creativity)
or quality (discipline), block 15 mins daily
to work on that skill/quality.
And come Dec 31 next year, enjoy the
37% growth in your income, happiness
and (whatever you want).
So what is a skill or quality you will love to
develop and master in 2022?
Share it with me so I can help you in my
Your #1 fan,
P.S. I am planning to write to you more often
because I really want you to do well.
So here’s the plan.
On weekends (likely Sat), I will send an email
relating to topics on self-mastery. Many of
these emails will be based on my personal
experiences and observations.
On Thursdays, I will send you emails that
are more business related. Focus will be on
helping you deal with the unique challenges
(1) Omicron variant and the possible lockdown
(2) Growing popularity of robo-advisors
(3) Changing consumer values because of
the pandemic (in particular with millennials
and Gen Z, the digital native)
(4) Increasing competition in your industry
(competition including influencers trying to
steal market share away from you)
(5) Massive changes to social media platforms
and how we must adapt to the ever-changing
algorithm and content preferences
