30 days of focus: Jerry Seinfeld’s trick to focusing on long-term priorities

While a lot of comedians struggle on the comedy circuit, Jerry Seinfeld has risen to a level of success that puts him at the very top of the pile — with books and movies and endorsements and, of course, a television show that had a HUGE impact on our culture. Along with all of that, he also rakes in WAY more than most comedians. At the height of his TV show’s popularity, he was making $60 million per year. Later, he made $225 million from the syndication rights. (Note: I recognize that money isn’t always the best measure of focus but I’m writing for entrepreneurs and money tends to be a good measure of focus).

So what can you build a “chain of momentum” around? For me, there are a few habits I have (or would like to have) that I can do this with: Marketing, proposal writing, content writing for my clients, book writing (of my own book), inbox zero, working out… the list goes on and on.
