To Learn From: Jerry Seinfeld


He has been regarded as one of the most successful comedians of all-time by Comedy Central. Not only was he the co-creator and co-writer of Seinfeld, he has syndicated several shows with recently signing a Netflix deal worth nearly $100 Million to air Seinfeld Show for the next 5 years.


What is most impressive about Seinfeld's career isn't the awards, the earning, or special moments with the soup nazi - it's his processes he had stayed true for nearly 40+ years. Show after show, year after year, he performs, creates, and entertains at an incredibly high standard. Jerry attributes most of his success to what he calls the "Seinfeld Strategy" which allowed him to maintain his consistency daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly.


The "Seinfeld Strategy" is basically a process to maintain consistency in your practice through few simple rules outlined below:


  • Don't Break the Chain (It doesn't matter if you're motivated or not. It doesn't matter if you're great at your practice or not. It doesn't matter if what you're working on will yield into a paycheck. All that matters is that you do not break your chain within your practice and keep consistent

  • Don't Overthink (We assume that excellence requires a monumental effort and that our lofty goals demand incredible does of willpower and motivation. But really, all we need is dedication to small, manageable tasks. Mastery follows consistency.

  • Small Achievements but no to 2 or more Days (It's ok to miss a day every once in a while if you are feeling overwhelmed, but regardless, do not break for 2 or more days. Even if you do your practice for 5 minutes, keep consistent and your mind will automatically want to do more overtime)
