John Assaraf’s “Exceptional Life Blueprint”
According to his website, Assaraf is “one of the leading behavioral and mindset experts in the world”. He is an author, an entrepreneur, and has developed a neuroscience-based brain training program to help people master their mindsets. I love anything to do with neuroscience and was instantly hanging on his every word. My biggest takeaway from this interview was the fact that he sets comprehensive goals for himself and reviews them everyday – something I’ve been meaning to do but hadn’t found the right framework for.
To clearly and thoughtfully record what you want for yourself, as well as what you need to work on, is a great way to stay on track and dedicated to your goals. It also makes me feel like I can lock into a productive mindset whenever I choose. It isn’t always easy to stay present day after day, so rituals and habits become key. Assaraf notes that 100 days is the amount of time needed to repeat and practice a task in order for it to be set as a habit. I go through spurts of focus and hustle and my motivation can be a bit difficult to muster at times. I’m looking forward to seeing what this particular way of recording goals, in detail, will do for me. I’ll let you know in 100 days!
