Often it seems like other people are getting a lot more done than we are. But what are they sacrificing? We all have limited time and doing one thing means giving up another. We have to set the right goals and sacrifice the right things to accomplish them. For all we know, someone else could be sacrificing personal health or family, yet all we see are the accomplishments. While it is dangerous to compare, sometimes seeing the success of others can provide a needed reality check on the various time-wasters we have that keep us from getting more done.
We talk about all of this in today's podcast episode.

I love this message!
They might be more skilled, or they might work smarter. In this case they might be sacrificing less even. ❤ the typography, the m letter from the 3rd row in particular :)
i just blame it on their rich parents.
@Paul Ungureanu working smarter of being more skilled often means taking more time to learn/investigate how to become better/smarter at doing something.
Which means going the extra mile for the extra accomplishments.
Word (on the quote).
@Richard de Ruijter If it would have said "they've sacrificed" I would have agreed with you :)
What an amazing perspective. Never really thought about time like that.
Hats off to those who knock it out day in and day out, but there is work/life balance which is often weighted heavily on the work side for those killing it. But hey, if you can handle it, do it ;) I can't.
A good perspective on time is incredibly valuable... Very well spoken Sean!
True. But some people get a to have a good head start or have initial advantage compared to other people.
Great and true message!
I like the idea of the message but it's not always true and it's usually not a 1:1 ratio in sacrifice:accomplishment. I wouldn't want to say that to the people who sacrifice a lot and yet don't get the return anyway.
@Michael It's definitely not always a 1:1 ratio. There are many facets to this topic, and a ton more than can be surmised in a simple quote. This is the reason for the link at the end of my description which I recommend checking out for some much-needed context—both the written notes and audio podcast.
@Sean McCabe I'll listen to that today. Probably should have before my comment.
I dig it!
I like this.
The people that get more done than me don't have kids... is my excuse. :)
I needed that!
I started listening your podcast, and I just can't stop. This is the podcast i've been looking for so long! Thank you dude.
i'm in a deep stress now :(
