Scott’s foundational texts are: The One Thing, Compound Effect, The Twelve Week Year, and Getting Results the Agile Way. Scott has boiled the messages from these influences down into a central approach. His method starts with a long-term goal, which then gets broken down into smaller chunks, all the way down to the level of the daily. Scott’s idea of a good daily schedule should begin with physical wellbeing and mental clarity, leading on to attacking three tasks, and ending with reflection on these successes. Scott sees this method itself as a kind of safety net to land on, even in the event of a deal not working out. Another central principle behind some of the sticky situations Scott has tweaked to his benefit is self-belief. Tune in to hear more about Scott’s unique approach and valuable influences.
