    The Ultimate Vacation Auto-Email Responder

    The Ultimate Vacation Auto-Email Responder

    In an episode of the Tim Ferriss Show, there was a discussion about how to truly unplug during a vacation (https://tim.blog/2020/07/23/brad-feld/). This discussion was moving for me because so many of us need vacations and to truly get away from work but we don't technically. And that's because of emails. I don't mean that we're always checking emails while we're away. What I mean is they are always right there, waiting for us, when we return. They stare us in the face, all hundreds of those new emails, taunting us and making us essentially live out the past week. You might be thinking this is an exaggeration, and sure, it may be BUT do these emails NOT take away your time at the start of your week? Would you not be better served if you went into work WITHOUT having to spend your 1st day back managing emails? That's the point of the technique which they shared and now I'm sharing with you. Join me for this lesson and afterwards share any thoughts or questions in the comment section. Hit me up on social media @PhilSvitek if it's easier. I'd love to hear from you.

    Surround Yourself With People Whose Opinions Differ From Yours

    Surround Yourself With People Whose Opinions Differ From Yours

    It's super important to seek out differing thoughts and opinions within you life. Why? Because without them, you'll be unaware of your blindspots. And ironically, the more you think you know, the more blindspots you end up having. Investor Ray Dalio is successful with his Bridgewater Associates BECAUSE he employs such a technique with any investments they make. Conversely, NASA could have benefited from a culture of differing opinions. How? You'll have to join me for this lesson. I not only go over this bit of history but discuss how this thinking could affect you. Afterwards share any thoughts or questions in the comment section.

    Remove Filler Words From Your Podcast(s)! - PhilSvitek.com/PodcastServices (Advertisement)

    Remove Filler Words From Your Podcast(s)! - PhilSvitek.com/PodcastServices (Advertisement)

    Any podcasts that has repetitive filler words (um, you know, etc) feels unprofessional and detracts from the core message of the host or guest. But removing them is both tedious and time consuming. That's where I come in. I will remove them from your audio podcast for you - just click here: https://www.fiverr.com/share/1E65Dk.  It doesn't matter if your audio has 10 or 10,000 filler words—I will get it done for you quickly so you meet your deadlines!

    How it works is you'll send me your audio—you can either send me a single audio file with everyone's voices mixed together OR as separate tracks for each individual. If you send me separate tracks, make sure the timing of the tracks is the same. (I won't be able to sync them for you). Once I receive your file(s) I will remove the filler words for you.   When I'm done, I can deliver it back to you in these ways:  

    -A mixed down, single MP3 file 

    -Separate audio tracks for each individual person 

    -An Adobe Audition session along with all project assets  I have created packages based on the length of your raw audio. 

    The longer the audio, the more I have to charge since it's more effort on my part. But, besides the basic starter package, I'll also do noise reduction and volume compression on your audio so it sounds clean and smooth.

    Combat Decision Fatigue By Eliminating 1,000 Tiny Decisions With A Single Major One

    Combat Decision Fatigue By Eliminating 1,000 Tiny Decisions With A Single Major One

    Our brains, whether we want it or not, are limited in the amount of decisions we can make in a day. If we make too many choices, we end up with decision fatigue. This is an issue because you want to maximize your brain power on the things that matter in your life. So how do you combat this? You eliminate 1,000 tiny decisions with one major decision. I highlight how and provide you with examples. More importantly though, I challenge you at the end to come up with major decisions for your life that can get rid of unnecessary decision making. Join me for this lesson and afterwards in the comment section. Hit me up on social media @PhilSvitek if it's easier. I'd love to hear from you.

    Do We Overvalue Busyness?... Ep 113 with Phil Svitek

    Do We Overvalue Busyness?... Ep 113 with Phil Svitek

    During an episode of Yoga Girl: Conversation from the Heart, host Rachel Brathen talked about how society puts this value and pressure for us to remain busy constantly (https://www.yogagirl.com/podcast/conversations-from-the-heart/wherever-you-go-there-you-are). This really resonated with me because it does feel true. You hear phrases like "everyone has value" or "everyone is lovable inherently" but we don't show it. It is this idea that I unpack and explore in this episode. I'd love for you to join and afterwards be sure to comment with any thoughts or questions you may have. Or hit me up on social media @PhilSvitek. I'd love to hear from you!

Fantastic Insights

How does he keep coming up with new lessons each and every week??? I don’t know but the fact that he does is amazing because I learn so much from him. Thank you for all that you do. Highly recommend this series to anyone. Also, what’s great to see is Phil’s personal journey through all of this. He’s not just teaching me, he’s teaching himself and it shows. Keep it up.
