There was a phrase in a recent episode of The Tim Ferriss Show in which Ferriss described "searching for the lead domino" when tackling a series of problems or tasks. The strategy: Identify the one problem that when solved, takes out all or some of the others.
Its simplicity is beautiful. What has made this concept so difficult to embrace in the past is my inability to start anywhere but the beginning. I blame it on OCD. But now I don't have much of a choice. I have to be more efficient.
I recently moved back to the burbs again (more on that later in the week), and as a result, my commute doubled. I didn't take a vacation from the blog last week. There was no time to post. Or was there? Was that just Resistance talking?
Consider this week a living experiment in searching for that lead domino. I still intend to get eight hours of sleep, five workouts in during the week and 1,000 words of the book written each night. Can I also update this blog five times? To be determined. But I think it can be done.
