Show Notes

In this episode, I distill four themes gleaned from interviewing my first 100 guests.

#1: Self-care is non-negotiable & yes you do have time.  
#2: There is joy to be found in exploring new & different ways of thinking.
#3: Productivity is a choice. Where you are going to be productive & how productive you are going to be is in your hands.
#4: Curiosity makes life way more interesting.

Practical tips:
1. Start your day with a morning routine -  even 10 minutes will have an impact (see episode #3).
2. Delete all Social Media apps from your phone.
3. Articulate a philosophy around technology by asking how it aligns with your values &  then make changes  - like #4 & #5.
4. Delete social media accounts that aren't serving you.
5. Claim an honest day of rest (Daniel's book: https://amzn.to/3iEzHkT)
6. Learn to say NO  (episode #71).
7. Remember that productivity is a choice.
8. When memories take precedence over school/work goals enjoy those times - don't beat yourself up for not meeting goals that can wait.
9. Set a schedule that capitalizes on your personally productive hours
10.  Get curious when you are triggered and ask “Isn’t this interesting?” Or, “I wonder what I might be learning here?”

My Mantras:
1.     In the end it will be OK. If it’s not OK, it’s not the end. 

2.     Energy goes where attention flows.  

3.     Own your impact.
