Oh boy, I haven’t written anything on here since ages, probably this is my longest non-posting period since the start of MySupremacy.com.
Why is that?
It is because I am doing what needs to be done. You see, this blog and all my activities under John Deus are not meant to generate considerable income. While I, like every sane human being, leave the door open to the possibility of monetizing this in case my other ventures failed, I am not focusing all that too well on it now.
Now, I am doing this to help you guys, to share what I have learned through the years, learn from your experience and provoke a beneficial thinking and self-improving session to everyone interested.
As much as I do enjoy this when something of more importance come my way, then I will do needs to be done regardless of which is more enjoyable or easy.
And this is the message I want you to understand today.
We have this limited willpower battery, the more comfortable our life is, the more it shrinks, the harder and more difficult our life is, the more it expands.
Ironically, left alone, this willpower battery will give us a tiny little bit less energy than needed to go through our day, and it will expand and shrink accordingly.
Now I, like many of you, would like to spend this energy wisely until I accumulate more charge in this battery to suffice me to do other tings as well.
I don’t want to be the best at one thing only, I wanna be great at many different things, I want to get money, be healthy, have a great social lifestyle, learn a new language, improve my piano and guitar skills, paint, etc.
So what is the logical solution to this dilemma???
I have heard a quote about big data recently that I think it also fits perfectly on Time Managment.
Fixing that quote will give us:
Time Managment is like teenage sex: everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it…
I do suck at managing my time, I suck so much that I am now certain that it is not my fault, that thing is just not manageable!
Regardless of how much planning you do, accidents and surprises will come your way and it will mess up everything!
And apart from that, even in those 3 days a month you get your time schedule right, you might feel like you did so much, but each thing you did was just mediocre and not moving you that much forward.
This notion of dividing your day into parts and do all the things you want to do in their tiny portion of time doesn’t work.
The reason of our constant failing at this time management thing is that, apart from time, our willpower battery will not be enough to cover all those activities and so it will cause us to give up on them ALL!
How to achieve great things in real life?
Give you all to one thing and one thing only.
There is this book called:
The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results
That awesomely cover the topic of “One thing only” really well, I highly recommend that you grab a copy of it and give it a read.
But how will you cover many aspects of life if you are going to give your all to one thing only?
well, here is the trick.
Give your all to one thing only until it: 1-beomes so easy and not expensive on your willpower battery.
1-beomes so easy and not expensive on your willpower battery.
2- You achieve some degree of mastery in it.
Then and only then you jump to the other thing you want to do and give it your all, and then you sync all your activity to how much that area of your life is suffering and how urgent it is to fix it right now.
This is what is happening to me right now.
I started from point zero, like almost everyone else, worked my way to achieve a body that makes me proud, jumped to kicking it in my studies, jumped to working on my business and start-ups, jumped to challenge the boundaries of what is possible for an average guy like me to achieve in the area of success with women, and finally moved to try to leave a mark on this world, maybe leave it a little tiny bit better than I found it.
But somewhere along the way, I lost touch with my financial situation and how well I was doing on that part, fortunately, I caught on with the situation and now I am giving it all I got until I unlock yet another level, I want to reach an income I have never had before, and then, only then I will go back to taking care of my other parts of my life.
Right now, my fitness and health level are taking the most damage out of this burst in the financial area, I have gained at least 20 pounds the last couple of months, while this sucks, it is certainly ok, and I will come back to that and fix it when it is the time to do so.
Right now, I will be doing what has to be done.
The only area that is surviving this emergency is Dating and success with women, as you can tell if you follow me on Instagram!
The reason for that I guess is that I pushed myself in that area so far that I somehow created this safety net that will allow me to drastically reduce the effort I am putting in that area and still manage to pull off the same results, I will talk about that in another article.
With all the weird schedules, methods and secrets to success, there is one and only one fact, there is something that has to be done.
You know it, you have a clear answer to it right now, why do you want the sun to rise tomorrow?
What does the passing of time mean to you? what are you waiting for?
If you don’t have a goal, for now, it will be, Health, money and social life, it is not that complicated.
And if you have the answer in your head, start, start now, drop everything else and focus on that one thing.
Fail and try again.
The time is passing anyway, and you are going nowhere unless you put in the effort.

John, how can you become a master at something if you are working 12 hour days 5 days a week? Is it possible to become mastery level at something if you only have 2 days out of the week?
