Time Management #7: Do the Top 3 and Let the Rest Go!

Time Management #7: Do the Top 3 and Let the Rest Go!

The list is the origin of culture. It's part of the history of art and literature. What does culture want? To make infinity comprehensible. It also wants to create order…how, as a human being, does one face infinity?” —Umberto Eco 

There’s a famous photo floating around the Internet of one of Johnny Cash’s to-do lists that’s simply hilarious…

Time Management #4: Success Starts Now

Time Management #4: Success Starts Now

I often hear a lot of push back around planning your time. But let’s set the record straight. Yes, being in the present moment is “the way,” but it doesn’t mean NOT planning for your future or setting any goals. That’s too black and white. It means plan as much as you can to be in alignment with how you want to spend your time to be MORE able to live in the now. When you map out your goals and time frames, it actually produces more freedom to live in the present moment.

Time Management #2: Stop Putting Out Fires All Day

Time Management #2: Stop Putting Out Fires All Day

Sometimes in the evenings, when you’re looking back at your day, do you find that nothing on your “goal list” got done? This used to happen to me more than I’d like to admit. That’s why I’ve spent the last years intensely studying what makes us more efficient with time so we can knock out busyness and get on with the joy are lives are supposed to be made of. 

How many days do you spend the bulk of your time running around putting out fires?

How much closer could you be to your big dream if you stopped letting the tail wag the dog? There’s actually a way to work half the amount you are now and make twice as much money and time for things you love. Focus baby focus.  

Time Management #1: The Power of Writing Out Your Goals With Pen and Paper

Time Management #1: The Power of Writing Out Your Goals With Pen and Paper

Who reading this hates when asked to make a list of personal or professional goals? Like writing it with a pen/pencil on actual paper?

I used to despise it. I couldn’t narrow big ideas, didn’t know how to articulate others, and felt a few were just unattainable fantasy.

But the truth is the more you do this the more you’ll see your busyness fade into the sunset. Also, guess what? You end up creating your life by design — one that you truly love. Most people go through their whole lives never discovering their true desires because of some falsity that it’s wrong to have or want, and that if you do it means you don’t appreciate what you have. But it’s not “either or mentality,” but a “both mentality” that’ll create true joy, abundance and success.

Money Series Lesson 5: Math or Mind Drama... Which One Keeps You From Making More Money?

Math vs. Mind Drama

For example, let’s say you want to make 200 K. That’s the math of the equation.

Everything else is mind drama. Mind drama includes doubts about your capabilities, the “how,” of how you will go about making that 200 K and all your other beliefs surrounding making the 200 K. All of these beliefs really have nothing to do with making the 200 K.

How to Get Out of the Habit of Self-Sabotage

How to Get Out of the Habit of Self-Sabotage

Last week I talked to you about creating ONE impossible goal for 2019. Did you do the assignment? I really hope so because it’ll change your life!  

When you have a BIG goal it becomes even more important to understand the spiral of self-sabotage.

Self-sabotage defined. It’s the act of creating unnecessary problems for one’s self that interfere with your own goals.

How to Make the Impossible Possible this Year

How to Make the Impossible Possible this Year

You’ve probably thought about several goals for the new year. But have you thought about the ONE BIG one? 

I wanna help you plan 2019 not by planning every area of your life, but by planning just ONE BIG impossible goal. That may sound counterintuitive.

Why would I set a goal that’s impossible? And why just ONE?

By making it unrealistic or impossible you short-circuit or trick your mind into being “ok” with failure because you already know it’s impossible. By committing to just ONE big goal you get to go all in and put your heart and soul into just one focus.

Let's Get Comfortable With Discomfort

Let's Get Comfortable With Discomfort

Often times us buyaholics, busy ourselves because we just “DO” without thinking it through. We get so caught up in all of the tasks, or that new training, and that volunteer position that we don’t focus on the big picture.

Consider that what feels important today, is just a distraction from your true dreams and desires. If you examine your to-do list you'll find that some of the items don't even need to be done!

When you get to the end of your life would you rather have used your time to focus on your dreams, what it is that really matters to you, or on your to-do list? No brainer right?
