Chapter 3: Losing the Friction by Ed O’Keefe


One of the biggest problems with self-help and success programs is that you leave with more on your to-do list than when you started.  It’s time to “Lose The Friction” as we dive into the third chapter of Time Collapsing.  When you lose the friction, you eliminate the meaningless work or relationships that are holding you back.

We’ll discuss:

  • How removing the friction in your life can help you pick up speed
  • The steps to letting go of the friction
  • Using zero base thinking to decide what you need to let go of
  • Why emotional control is so vital
  • Behind the scenes of the stories in this chapter

Ed O’Keefe: The Art of Speeding Success Up! You don’t have to accept the conventional rules about the way things are “supposed to” progress. Create your own rules! Flip everything you think you know on its side and rethink your assumptions. Stop and ask yourself crucial questions about who you are and what it is you really want. When was the last time you did that?

Creating The Tsunami Effect! Guaranteed System To Succeed In Business and Life! Do you want to know why you haven’t reached your ideal level of success yet? Maybe it’s because, instead of digging in and grinding away at one goal, you were giving a percentage of energy to a bunch of different passion projects and business ideas. Maybe it’s because you gave up when things got hard or took longer than you expected. Whatever the reason, there is a way back to the path of success.

Gary LaFerla: Vital Factors People love Gary’s stories and I’ll tell you, any business that grows beyond the one-person operator, even though I could argue that even if you are a one-person operator, you need to know these numbers. You need to know how to focus on what’s really important. And that’s why we call it Vital Factors!
