Memorable Quotes from Allen:

  • “There’s two flaws in the model. What we’ve done is flipped that to make goal setting short term based and specific.”
  • “It gives you enough time to make progress on something but it’s short enough to always see the end in sight so you don’t procrastinate.”
  • “I want to make sure I get all my physical, mental, spiritual and emotional needs done first thing in the morning. That way as soon as I’m done and complete in the morning, I can focus on strictly business.”
  • “High achievers always think about what’s next. Reflect on those small wins.”
