This post is part of the πŸ“– Start From Zero series.

Today I continue reading Chapter 7 of the book Start From Zero.

The goal of this book is to build the brain of an entrepreneur, one that can create meaningful businesses and income streams from nothing.

Align your environment

To gain exponential results, you need to optimise these 4 things.

Thought, Feeling, Environment, Schedule

Author Dane says, ask yourself.

  • What primary thought can I hold to pursue my dream of X?

  • What primary feeling can I insert to pursue my dream of X?

  • What primary change can I make to my environment to pursue X?

  • What primary change can I make to my schedule to pursue X?”

An example will look like this when you apply four of the above in your life.

Here’s an example from a fellow entrepreneur.


Thought: I am a humble entrepreneur. I love making profits so I can solve more problems and help more people.


Feeling: I am already taken care of.


Environment: I’m hanging out with the right crowd so the right people will show up.


Schedule: In bed at 8: 30 p.m.

Here’s another example:


Thought: I can have financial and time freedom.


Feeling: Joy.


Environment: I can put my computer on the dining room table so I can work on my business after everyone goes to bed or first thing in the morning.


Schedule: I can go online and provide one solution to one business right away in the morning just for the practice of serving.”

Key Takeaways

As an entrepreneur, we have to self-love. The ideas need to be simple. We want our living circumstances to aid us, not destroy us.


You need to optimise the four things in your personal life to get the most out of your business journey. Those are your Thoughts, Feelings, Environment and finally Schedule.
