    Three Ingredients to Your Better Self

    Three Ingredients to Your Better Self

    In this episode of The Future Focused Podcast, I discuss three important ingredients to your better self. 
    Getting better does not happen accidentally; it takes intention and some effort. Most people focus on dieting, lifting weights, reading books, budgeting, investing and other important areas, but overlook these very three "doable" daily actions. The results are immediate.

    Knowing the three is NOT enough. I want you to hear why you need them and how to put them to use.

    It's Not Time for That, Yet!

    It's Not Time for That, Yet!

    In this episode of The Future Focused Podcast, I talk about how to deal with lots of ideas and projects competing for your time. 
    I have been working hard on the skill of finishing. I get a lot of creative ideas. I take on a lot of projects and responsibilities. While all of that is good, I must finish what I start to get the results I and others need. So how can you stay focused when your brain gets flooded with other cool ideas, or others request your time for their project? Well, it can be a challenge, but I have found a few strategies that help me, and I think they might help you too.

    The Problem with 100 Percent

    The Problem with 100 Percent

    In this episode of The Future Focused Podcast, I outline how abandoning the mindset of 100% can help you create better habits and accomplish more. 
    This 40th episode of The Future Focused Podcast will help you level-up your leadership and design a more dynamic life by focusing on the power of a proper mindset and building habits that deliver. Unfortunately, too many people adopt a mindset that they put complete belief in, but in reality, actually hinders performance. 
    I'm talking about the problem of 100%.

    Five Financial Apps You Must Have on Your Phone

    Five Financial Apps You Must Have on Your Phone

    In this episode of The Future Focused Podcast I share the five financial apps you must have on your phone, and share a little on how to use each one to level up your leadership and design a more dynamic life. 
    Finances matter. They really do. You can't lead others nor live your best life if the weight of financial strife is holding you back and impairing your decisions. While these five apps are extremely helpful and will give you an edge, it takes personal discipline to manage your money. These are not get-rich-quick apps or anything like that. These are apps that help you spend less, budget, keep an eye on your money, invest, and learn about finances. 
    Money matters. To be a good leader and to design a dynamic life, you need to master your finances, and mastering your finances begins with mastering yourself. You need to be extremely disciplined. Rules I follow: Eliminate Debt. Build savings. Create multiple revenue streams. Invest.  You need these buckets. You do need to have fun too. 
    This podcast will serve you well. Let me know what app I should have included and why in the comments below.

    The Importance of Mindfulness

    The Importance of Mindfulness

    In this 38th episode of The Future Focused Podcast, I discuss the importance of inaction, stillness, and mindfulness in relation to leadership and living a dynamic life. 
    We live in a fast-paced culture where multitasking, overwhelm and frustration are not only the norm but are often spoken of as virtues and badges of honor. I challenge this notion in this episode and remind listeners that like muscles, our brains need rest, and like devices, we often need a reset. 
    Knowing about the importance of stillness and mindfulness is not enough; it must be scheduled and practiced. Too many people don't start because they feel they must study it and learn more. Nonsense! I'll share everything you need to know to get started NOW and share a couple of helpful resources too. 
    This episode is an important episode that I hope you will really put into action. If you want great ideas, and the end to anxiety, then this is the episode for you. 
    Unthink Before Bed is my newest book and it has made a tremendous debut across the globe by helping families teach their children (and themself while they’re at it) to learn the art of mindfulness. How do you expect children to become mindful, reduce worry, anxiety, and stress if you don’t teach it or provide the tools? Well, that is what my book does in a really fun way! Unthink Before Bed is the perfect bedtime book with over forty, beautifully colored illustrations and a whimsical rhyme reminiscent of Dr. Seuss. Follow the bedtime adventure of a young boy and his dog as they learn how to prepare their mind for bedtime. Written and illustrated by a veteran educator of thirty years and a father of four. This is Kelly Croy’s second book. Unthink Before Bed teaches children (and adults) how to slow down, build a routine, get to bed, and fall asleep. Woven into every stanza and illustration are the ten, secret lessons of mindfulness. Reduce anxiety, worry, and stress. Fall asleep happily. Get a peaceful night’s rest. It’s also two books in one…. There’s a QR code in the back which takes you to the audiobook of me reading it. Order your copy on Amazon today. 
    Please let me know your thoughts. 
    Have a great week. 
    Kelly

    Repetition is a Strength, Not a Weakness

    Repetition is a Strength, Not a Weakness

    Repetition is a strength, not a weakness.
    You don’t need a pandemic to start building good habits. You just need to start.
    Repetition is a gift when it is intentional and skillful. Any successful person is so because of one factor, consistency. What is consistency? Consistency is a disciplined repetition.
    This episode of The Future of Podcast is about how to look at the pandemic differently and positively. 
    When all is lost, repetition offers us hope. Routines serve us, not imprison us. They free us.
    I do hope you are safe and well. Thank you for listening to this episode.
