🌼Warren Buffett’s 5/25 Rule WILL Sky-Rocket Your Productivity(HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
If time is money, Warren with his $100+ billion net worth is a productivity tycoon.
A trait that Buffett and every successful person have in common is clarity.
When you lack clear direction, you’ll run around in circles.
Trying to go everywhere = You end up going nowhere.
So elite “productivity” burns down to “pro-DIRECTivity”—where you know your priorities and direction in life.
That’s where Warren’s 5/25 rule swoops in — a 5-minute exercise to understand your topmost priorities.

Let’s do the exercise together:
Step 1: List down 10 of your top goals. Don’t overthink — go off the top of your head.
Step 2: Add 7 more to the list. Now, you might need to think a bit.
P.S: Here are a few ideas to help you out — Bagging a pay raise. Losing weight. Building a side hustle. Journaling regularly. Spending more time with your mother. Finding love. Improving your health. Mastering the guitar. Improving your work-life balance. Building an aesthetic physique.
Step 3: Take a deep breath. Sit back. Now, jot down 5 more.
Step 4: Wrack your brain and squeeze out another 3.
25 goals down. Half of the battle’s done — now for the easier subtracting half:
Step 5: Strike out 10 goals — not in order, but the ones you deem the least important.
Step 6: Left with 15? Cut out another 7 darlings.
Step 7: Last round — murder another 3 goals.
You’ll be left with 5 goals — these are your current highest priorities in life.
That’s where Warren stops, but I like to go a step further — cut out yet another 2 goals.

What I ended up with
Dedicate ALL your time and resources to the 3 goals you’re finally left.
If you pull that off, success is guaranteed — but sticking to them without letting distractions creep in is the real challenge.
Print and paste them on your wall. Bullet-journal daily. Make them your phone wallpaper. Reaffirm them every morning.
Incessantly talk about them with your friends and family.
Do whatever’s needed to keep yourself focused — fancy or weird, doesn’t matter.
Godspeed, my friend!
