9:32 “You must take intentional action and do something different than you did yesterday to expect different results.”

11:12 “Only one out of 100 people can multitask effectively, you’re probably not that one person. I know everybody listens to this, well, I’m the one person. No, you’re not. So, cut off the email, cut off the Facebook, tell Joe and Sally to get out of your office and for two to four hours a day, lock down your zone of brilliance, the things that you’re really good at, meets the things you love doing it from happiness, to profitability, to efficiency to actually enjoying the work you do.”

13:37 “Here’s the key. Not a human being on earth has more time or less time than anybody else. It doesn’t matter if it’s Warren Buffett or a great athlete or someone that’s just getting started. And we have to eliminate the word busy from our lives. When we say we’re busy. That’s really saying that someone or somebody or something else is prioritizing our time. The first thing I would tell everybody is to remember, every single moment of every single day of every single breath regarding your time is a choice. You can choose to do what you want with your time”

14:29 “When it comes to accepting an appointment, a lunch or a dinner or hanging out with another human being family or not family if it’s not a hell yes, it’s a no. It’ll be remarkable how much time you get back.”

21:12 “The only thing you can do is you. The only thing you can change is you and remember, the only true power we have in life is our choices.”

22:40 “Invest in yourself. First. It is the most selfless thing you can do. If you want to be a better husband or wife, love yourself more.”
