How I Dealt with my Paralyzingly Long To-do List

Buddha and Focus

  1. Impure intentions disappear & bliss is achieved
  2. Activities of the mind come to an end and only bliss remains
  3. Bliss itself begins to disappear
  4. All sensations, including bliss, disappear, and only complete peace of mind remains.

Reframing focus

My goals don’t matter…

My goals don’t matter for the reasons I used to think they matter.

Is there a way for us all to have a coach to help us achieve our wildest dreams?

What is Depth?

Depth is your coach. You’re the high-performance athlete.

  • Physical
  • Creative
  • Analytical
  • Planning
  • Problem-solving
  • Reactionary (Emails, etc.)
  • Admin
  • What type of task is this?
  • What’s the smallest increment of this task?
  • How difficult is this task (Fibonacci number rating system)
  • How long might the smallest increment of this task take?
  • Is this task worth your time and aligned with your long-term goals?

Depth is for craftspeople who want to work towards mastery of their discipline through focus.
