    Get Things Done (GTD)

    Get Things Done (GTD)

    Get Things Done (GTD)
    I’m a fan of David Allen’s Getting Things Done. His book spawned an entire industry. It also causes a lot of stress.
    A few years ago, David was speaking at a conference, and folks asked how he managed to get things done:
    1) Nothing gets done until I process everything. No cheating.  
    2) I process everything into a single “trusted” place when I have time. Some folks use a journal. Others use software or an app. 
    3) I review my potential work weekly and decide if I still need to do it.
    Nothing added to your list is more important than tasks already there. Processing everything together will reveal the best path. Stay focused, my friend.

    Specific, Time-based, Goals

    Specific, Time-based, Goals

    Specific, Time-based, Goals
    It’s the time of the year when people want more success in their life and start setting goals. Frankly, it doesn’t matter if you achieve your goal. The mere act of setting a goal will drive you closer to what you want - but you need to be careful:
    1) Goals should be painfully specific. I say “painfully” because most people find difficulty in choosing a particular outcome. They don’t want to limit their options. But isn’t that why you set goals?
    2) Goals should be outcome-based and not time-oriented. Keep working toward your goal until you reach it, not when your self-imposed time limit runs out. 
    3) Long-term goals should not be a variation of your short-term goals. If you want to make a million dollars a year, setting a goal to increase your income by 100k a year may make sense. In reality, your mindset is ten percent of what you need, and it will take you ten times longer to reach your goal.
    There’s no need to achieve one goal before going for another. Decide what you want and get it today. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

    Year-End Success Hacks (Part Two)

    Year-End Success Hacks (Part Two)

    Year-End Success Hacks (Part Two)
    Yesterday we spent a few minutes on practical ways to succeed in the future. 
    Here are a few actions that will provide a HUGE advantage over almost everybody.
    Oh, you may not like these no-brainer daily practices - but they will make you a peak performer:
    1) Eat right. 67% of the population eats fast food daily. 60% are obese. Simply eating a better diet will deliver an energetic and mindset boost.
    2) Exercise. 77% of the population does not exercise beyond daily duties. 100% of top performers exercise. Which do you want to be?
    3) Sleep lots. You need 8-10 hours of sleep per night. The average is now less than 6 hours. You’ll have more energy than 60% of the population by going to bed a little earlier.
    4) Be careful with alcohol—77% of adults drink - 50% regularly. One glass of wine will stop real progress. More than that, you’ll be less productive the next day. People who do that for a lifetime have no chance of reaching their dreams.
    Being more “Gooder than Badder” on these items will give you an advantage over 70.25% of the population. Who said you could never catch a break?

    Year-End Success Hacks (Part One)

    Year-End Success Hacks (Part One)
    As we move toward the end of the year, how about a bit of motivational tough love? 
    Before I get going -
    No matter what you desire in the future, remember that life and business are about solving problems. The bigger your dreams, the bigger your problems. If you want what nobody else has, you need to solve problems nobody else will.
    So, how do you begin with a bang?
    1) Decide what you want in the future. Be specific. Anything less is what ordinary people do.
    2) Decide to pay the price of your success. You’ve heard it before, and it’s true. Short-term pain leads to long-term gain. The future value of your life depends on the current value of your effort.
    3) Own your goals. You don’t need to ask permission from anybody. You don’t even need to say a word. Put your head down and get to work.
    4) Since you’ve decided what you want. Don’t accept your excuses. 
    When it’s time to get to work -
    5) Start your day early. Do what is important to you before the day begins.
    6) Set your focus and starting point. Pick the first task, finish it, and move on to the next. Keep going until you get what you want. 
    7) Hold space for what is essential for you.
    8) Develop the habit of deep work. Two hours of uninterrupted work per day will change your life.
    9) Don’t get caught up believing you need networking, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships. Yes, you need some - but not many. Trust yourself and start creating. Let everybody else catch up.
    10) Apply never-ending massive imperfect action. Don’t worry about the mess. You can clean it up later.
    Tomorrow we’ll chat about how to gain a HUGE advantage while accelerating your success.

    Success at The Highest Level

    Success at The Highest Level

    Success at The Highest Level
    No matter your life goals, there is a good chance you are striving to be the best at something.
    Whether it’s the best Mom or Dad, excelling in your career, or winning at the game or sport of your choice. Being the best always comes down to:
    1) Do what you love and are good at naturally. You’ll have the edge over others. Stay in your wheelhouse.
    2) Commit your focus toward mastery. Being a Jack-of-all-trades won’t work. Specialists always win over generalists.
    3) Spend more time doing than learning. There’s a big difference between knowledge and wisdom. Experience is what matters. 
    4) Hire a Coach. When you’re at the top of your game, working with your Coach will take you from second place to first.
    5) Keep going until you get what you want. Never stop, and never make excuses. 
    It was your idea to pursue your path. Enjoy the privilege of being able to make that choice.

    Do Anything for 30 Days

    Do Anything for 30 Days

    Do Anything for 30 Days
    Call me crazy, but everything I've ever done had its roots in a 30-day sprint - and it's a long time.  
    A week is easy, crossing several weekends and life events will make it seem like forever.  
    Here’s how you do it:
    1) Set what Napoleon Hill calls a Major Definite Purpose, otherwise known as a big-ass goal.
    2) Stop that silly negative self-talk. Others may throw sticks and stones; don't throw them at yourself.
    3) Start thinking of all the reasons you CAN be successful. Make a list.  
    4) Decide that you will do whatever it takes to reach your goal for the next 30 days. Nothing will stop you.
    Decide that you will do whatever it takes to reach your goal for the next 30 days - and you will.

Just started listening with my mom.

I only have listened to one of his podcasts with my mom, and he already sounds the the best. The way he talked about clutter reminds me of stuff I need to let go and this podcast will help my grandma a lot too, but thank you for making this podcast Scott! Means a lot.
