    Four Thousands Weeks – Time Management for Mortals

    Four Thousands Weeks – Time Management for Mortals

    Alex looks how as life is finite for everyone finding a way to do the things that really matter and experience them completely is the way to achieve what really counts and brings you joy

    With the average life being made up of around four thousand weeks managing your time in the best way should be what’s really important but often we become overwhelmed and make choices that are about being busy instead of meaningful. Alex has great advice listen in and hear more

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The average life is around four thousand weeks
    To remove existential overwhelm make a list of  your twenty-five life goals in priority order and then focus only on the top five
    Concentrate completely on the first five goals on your list
    You need to create vacancies on the closed list before you move anything from the open list
    Adopt  strategic underachievement and concentrate on doing a few things really well
    Focus on doing well the things that are meaningful
    When you slow down and eliminate being busy all the time everything becomes more meaningful
    Everything becomes more meaningful when you experience it as if you are doing it for the last time
    Get lost in the time and feeling of the experience and it becomes more meaningful

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘You can get caught in the efficiency trap. Stop and break the existential overwhelm’

    ‘Get beyond yourself and put yourself in an emotional state of understanding’

    ‘Embrace the finiteness, get lost in the moment and enjoy the experience’

    Annastasia Janna, Pamela Naphiyo, Irene Berete, Gillian Kachikondo, Samkelisiwe Ginindza and Nozga Phiri of the H,E,R (Here Enough Ready) Group

    Listen in to hear about how emotions are linked to the chemical makeup of your body and how changing your thinking can change your emotional state. When you understand your emotions and how to respond to them you can change your world and achieve balance

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    When energy is in motion it continues to gain momentum until something stops it
    There is a link between your emotions and the chemical makeup of your body
    The brain doesn’t distinguish between what’s real and what’s not so you can manipulate it in whatever way you want
    You can change your thinking and think happy to change your emotions
    Your emotions are a guide and feedback to you about how things are going
    It’s important to feel the emotion but not let it take control of you
    To be the most use to society you have to be balanced
    Those who thrive are those who can see both the negatives and positives and create balance
    As humans, it’s vital to stay in the present and enjoy the journey
    The universe is like a mirror and it reflects back what you give to it
    The best way to change the world is to deal with negativity with love. The world changes when we change
    It’s a waste of energy to worry about the things that are out of your control
    Control your mind, control your body and control your life

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘As human beings we are perfect and we can shape ourselves in any way we want

    ‘You have to express and not suppress your feelings’

    ‘Be in the present and the moment and enjoy it’

    Hate – The Why, The Purpose and the How to Deal With It (Hint: It’s Not About You!)

    Hate – The Why, The Purpose and the How to Deal With It (Hint: It’s Not About You!)

    Alex looks at hate, sharing an informative insight into the reasons why people hate from low self-esteem through to envy and failure and explains why it’s not about you it’s about them.  He also looks at how  you can empathise and receive criticism in a way that helps you to grow because when you understand where it’s coming from you can be the change that you want to see

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    You can learn to master your understanding that it’s not about you
    Hate can have a purpose and you can use it
    People will hate because they hate themselves
    Those with low self-esteem and self-worth reflect this into the world
    People who hate are trying to pull others to their level
    Be the change you want to see handle everything with love
    Hate can come from envy
    If you show love and see people in a different way you can help them to see things differently
    Where people perceive you as being above them they can want to pull you down
    You can see everyone as equal and at this level, there is no hate
    Understand what is triggering the hate in people
    You can grow by using criticism as feedback and looking inside yourself
    You need balance to be at your most useful in society
    You can empathise with it and be the change

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘If you don’t see people as above or below you then you are balanced

    ‘You get back what you give to the world’

    How To Stop Procastination and Finish What You Start - The Mindset and The Rules

    How To Stop Procastination and Finish What You Start - The Mindset and The Rules

    Alex explains why people procrastinate and how it can potentially mean you end up with lots of unfinished projects

    He also provides great content on how to stop procrastinating and develop a finishing mindset so that you can be someone who not only finishes but also learns from every project you begin

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    In week 1 of a project, you are full of enthusiasm and inspiration  but by week 3 you lose interest and abandon the project
    You can end up with multiple projects that you never finish
    You need the four follow through muscles of focus, resisting distraction, persistence and taking action when looking at a project
    In week 1 your follow-through muscles are at their optimum
    Psychological roadblocks are the expectations you create around perfectionism
    It’s insecurity in disguise it gives you what you perceive as valid excuses to not to take action
    You need to adopt a finishing mindset
    In the process of getting to the end, you will be learning
    Finishing always equals learning and keeps the psychological roadblock of perfection at bay
    Have a finishing manifesto – a set of rules that means you always finish
    ‘I want’ is what you want to achieve, ‘I will’ is the actions you will complete, ‘I won’t’ is removing the distractions so you can achieve

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘It doesn’t have to be perfect because when you finish you have always learnt something’

    ‘It’s a mindset that will help you to keep learning’

    ‘Have an implementation intention and you will be more likely to take action’

    Erupting into Your Peak Version - Next Level Human Performance Acceleration with Former Star Athlete and Bull Rider Wylie McGraw

    Erupting into Your Peak Version - Next Level Human Performance Acceleration with Former Star Athlete and Bull Rider Wylie McGraw

    Wylie McGraw is a former star athlete, competitive bull rider, 3-tour combat veteran and Founder of Radical Performance Acceleration specializing in accelerating performance for those in leadership.

    He talks with Alex about his experiences and how they helped him to understand his superpower – being able to eradicate the stress of others, get them to reach their potential, and optimize in all areas of life.

    When you understand the stresses in your life and face them head-on, there can be a resolution which translates to living in an optimal state that produces results beyond expectation.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    External pressures impact us more than we like to admit.
    We are unfortunately afraid of the stresses and chaos of life; we spend our time suppressing things rather than resolving them.
    Resolution is the only way to achieve optimization.
    Your performance in life should be about advancing who you are and optimizing yourself.
    We have become lost in overthinking and disconnected from other valuable aspects of ourselves when it comes to achieving and reaching our peak success.
    Your intuitive mind is a precious gift that will make the difference on your way towards bigger successes.
    You must evolve your understanding of stress and recognize the limits it has on you.
    Acute stresses are the recurring life experiences that keep happening to us and they are tied to your unresolved chronic stresses.
    The only way to resolve chronic stresses is to face them head-on.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘Who you are, impacts your ability to operate’

    ‘The only way you are ever going to have what you say you want is when you can eradicate the chronic stress in your life’

    ‘Peak performance starts with your ability to surrender and optimise your life’

    ABOUT THE GUEST

    Wylie McGraw is a former star athlete, competitive bull rider, and 3-tour combat veteran.

    It was through those intense experiences that he discovered his crazy superpower of being able to expose blind spots, erupt & eradicate stress, and fully unleash the untapped potential of high achievers.

    He’s the founder of Radical Performance Acceleration and for well over a decade now he’s been behind-the-scenes doing life-altering work with powerful CEOs, Entrepreneurs, Leaders, and Public Figures accelerating their performance both personally and professionally.

    His work is the proverbial “Navy SEAL Training” equivalent to high performance and leadership development – pushing even the elite beyond their limits so they not only hit their peak but sustain it.

    Wylie’s formal title is Performance Accelerator. He has been named a “secret weapon” by some of the most influential leaders across industries from Wall St., Hollywood, Professional Sports, Fortune 500 companies, Personal Development, and everything in between.

    His work is about giving an elite edge to high achieving individuals while ending their cycle of stress, sacrifice, and suffering that’s unfortunately associated when reaching their levels of accomplishment and success.

    When Wylie’s not travelling the country to meet his clients, this family man enjoys skydiving, mountain top sunsets, and occasionally sipping on an 18-year-old single malt scotch pondering the philosophies of life, the cosmos, and beyond.
