Strategies, "rituals of the life" that lead to peak performance:
- Focus on the essential
"things that are more important should not be
a the mercy of things that are less important"- Goethe
- Do one thing at the time
no "continuous partial attention"
- 1 minute of "inner-net" each day
"mindfulness", i.e. yoga + meditation, 1 of 1440 minutes in a day
- Appointments for mindfulness: one hour out of 168 in each week
non-negotiable, "anchors" every week, "sharpen the saw"
- Friend yourself
the most important relationship one can ever have is with yourself
