    003: 3 Ways To Create Simplicity In Your Life Right Now

    003: 3 Ways To Create Simplicity In Your Life Right Now

    You’re an ambitious human like me. That means, every now and then, the chaotic and complex side of life shows up.
    When that happens, here are 3 powerful tips to create simplicity in your life, right away:
    ✅ POWERFUL TIP #1: RECREATE YOUR SCHEDULE
    It can be an eye-opener when you look at everything that’s ended up on your schedule. Too many times we figure out that we’ve enthusiastically over-committed, once again.
    A good question to ask when looking at each entry on your schedule is, “Why do I do this?” Really answer that question for each thing.
    When I do this for my own schedule (every quarter), I’m usually able to restructure, or completely eliminate, at least one thing on my schedule.
    ✅ POWERFUL TIP #2: SIMPLIFY YOUR WORKOUTS
    You are getting your workouts in, right?
    What I’ve found, with my ambitious tendencies, is that it’s easy to get caught up thinking that more is better.
    Trust me: IT IS NOT!
    For most people, 30-minute high-intensity workouts are enough to get into, and stay, in great shape.
    Now, if you’re training for something specific, this may not apply to you.
    If you’re looking to lose some fat, get healthier, and establish a consistency, then 30 minutes is the way to go.
    ✅ POWERFUL TIP #3: FOCUS ON RIGHT NOW
    This seems way too simple, right? Once again, it’s not!
    Getting caught thinking about the past or stressing about the future is a common trait for us ambitious people.
    When that happens in my life, there’s a powerful one-two punch that I use to pull myself out of the hell storm.
    1️⃣ First, I take the mandatory DtDW Power Pause. That’s a minimum of 10 seconds of ‘eyes-closed-emotionless-breathing’ and zero decision-making.
    2️⃣ Second, after 10 seconds (sometimes more), I ask the question, “Where can I create simplicity, RIGHT NOW?”
    This question is powerful because it gives me permission not to figure out my entire life at this moment. Instead, it’s a commitment to JUST TAKE VERY NEXT STEP toward what matters most.
    Which of these 3 tips makes do you need to implement the most, right now?
    If this episode hit home for you please leave me a 5-star rating and review. I'll never take your time for granted. Thank you.
    Now, go DOtheDamnWORK!

    The After Show

    The After Show

    In the last episode I talked about a dark time in my life, where I ultimately ended up sitting on the edge of my bed, with my gun by my side, considering taking my own life. This moment created a massive breakthrough in my life and fuels the reason WHY I’m building DOtheDamnWORK. In this after show, I bring you behind the scenes on my thoughts about that moment. I’ll also give you an idea of where this is all headed (website, community, app, etc).

The truth is nice

As I get older, I like not having too find loopholes or tricks. Just do the work reminds me to focus on crushing.

GREAT, BITE-SIZED PODCAST!!

I have listened to a couple episodes tonight, and I’m really enjoying them! The tone is firm, authoritative and direct- no fluff (which I appreciate very much). I’ve subscribed and will be tuning in often!
