1. Stay Focused
"I have learned that your full-on attention for any activity you choose to experience comes with a level of intensity and truth. It’s about living a present life, moment to moment—not worrying about what’s going to happen at 3 o’clock and what’s going to happen at 7 o’clock."
2. Get The Rest You Need
"I function very well on five and a half hours of sleep. Anything less than that, I notice a lack of focus, a listlessness, a waning energy, and not-as-sharp thinking.
3. Pay Attention
"I thought I was going to have people meditating in the morning, yoga classes midday, [spiritual guide] Eckhart Tolle on in the afternoon. I had a vision of what living your best life could look like. The people told me otherwise. I had to redo my vision."
4. Dream With Purpose
"What really mattered to me about creating a network was having a platform where I could connect ideas that let people see the best of themselves through the lives of other people."
5. Create A Safe Haven
"I close the door, wherever I am—at my old office in Chicago, I’d literally go in the closet—and just sit and breathe."
