    042 – Overcoming Toxic Perfectionism with Harriet Waley-Cohen

    Hey, what’s up, everyone! Welcome back to another episode of the Daily New Year’s podcast.

    I’m so excited today because this episode of the podcast takes us to the UK. I’ve interviewed one other person from the United Kingdom before, Tomas, in episode #25, and it’s always neat to connect with thought leaders around the world.

    Today, Harriet Waley-Cohen and I are diving deep into a specific topic—one that has played a role in holding me back in my own life: perfectionism.

    Perfectionism is the enemy of done, and it causes confidence issues, procrastination problems, and so much more. Why tell you everything here?

    Dive into the episode and join Harriet and me as we wage war on perfectionism and not feeling good enough about ourselves. Here we go!

    041 – Nick Bolhuis, Maximize Your Performance & Your Brain Health

    041 – Nick Bolhuis, Maximize Your Performance & Your Brain Health

    Hey everyone, welcome to another episode of the Daily Newy Year’s podcast!

    Recently I’ve been releasing more content on health, wellness, mindset, psychology, sleep habits, and nutrition and less about goal-setting strategies, prioritization techniques, and other content that is zeroed in on goal setting.

    Why?

    Because, as Goal Getters, we can’t maintain long-term, high-performance in our lives without good health, both mentally and physically. External, physical health is easier to see, but mental health, more specifically, what’s going on in our brains, is nearly impossible to see.

    Poor nutrition, insufficient sleep, too much screen time, excessive exposure to negativity—all of these things can have lasting effects on the brain, causing poor focus, memory issues, and more. How can we Crush Our Goals if our brains aren’t operating at 100%?

    We can’t!

    Joining us today is Nick Bolhuis and he’s going to provide a mountain of valuable takeaways that we can all use to improve our brain health, our focus, our performance, and so much more.

    Are you ready? Let’s do this!

    Hey, what’s up, everyone! Welcome back to another exciting episode of the Daily New Year’s podcast. I’m so excited today because I’m featuring one of my self-published classmates from Chandler Bolt’s Self-Publishing School.

    Joining us today is Jennifer Teske. I was on the launch team for Jennifer’s book Live, Love, and Hack Life: A Fresh Look at Understanding Law of Attraction. When I read it, I knew I just had to have her on the podcast.

Whether you’re totally new to Law of Attraction, or you have doubts of your own, this episode of the podcast is for you. Tune in, check it out, and be sure to grab a copy of Jen’s book.

Julian Hayes II ,

Everyday is January 1st

I love the message that everyday is January 1st. Far too often, people lose track and sight of their goals due to utilizing a non-ideal perspective. I appreciate the practical and highly actionable advice that Austin and his guests share on this podcast.
