    Doing The Work w/ Athan Schindler

    Athan mentioned that you need to stay focused, dream big and aim for it and never forget to TAKE ACTION. Ideas will never work if they remain an idea and in pursuing these ideas you need to be more involved in what you do. 

    To maintain interest in your goals, never stop learning, be knowledgeable. It’s important to have a clear vision for each of the possible outcomes.  




    It is important to understand what your priorities are because it will allow you to have more attention to complete the big tasks that are more important than the less prioritized tasks. And it is as simple as: “if it doesn’t matter, then don’t prioritize it.”

    If we fail often, we will learn a lot of things for us to become better. Don’t be afraid to fail. Failure is normal. Without failure, we cannot learn and we cannot improve.
