One of the greatest obstacles for people who want to go deeper into personal development is lack of time. J Cleveland Payne tries to negate that obstacle with the Ten Minute Life Lesson podcast, offering a complete and actionable lesson in personal development in ten minutes or less. Come out of the work week with a new lesson, as the podcast drops every Friday in your podcast feed or the website yourbetteryou.info.
Beef Up Your Reading Habits (TMLL 125)
Leader are readers. Readers are leaders. How ever you have heard it, those three words ring true. If you want to prove your agility to lead, you have to be read up. And not just with traditionally bound books.
Know Who Are You Going To Take It From (TMLL 124)
If you claim to want to reach some elite goal, you have to be ready to take out someone who is already in range to achieve the same goal.
We Are All Susceptible To 'Cults Of Personality' (TMLL 123)
Never put your full faith in any man (or woman for that matter). Humans are human after all. Which means fallible and destined to fail you eventually.
Perseverance (TMLL 122)
Perseverance is defined as persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. Two keys to perseverance are the reasons behind why you should keep going and distance (real or perceived) to where it is you want to go.
Well, I Guess I’m Back (TMLL 121)
Circumstances beyond my control led me to stop producing this podcast, again. As it happens, circumstances have changed, and opened a window to allow me back in to produce this podcast.
Set A Routine, Be Prepared For Distractions (TMLL 120)
Last week I had an extremely rough week at work, but a particular routine was interrupted that almost had me drop an especially important streak. As you work to progress in life and career, you cannot be scared to set a routine. But you also need to prepare for as many distractions as you can possibly plan for.
Solid, quick advice
These are quick bites of information and inspiration. Some of it you might have heard before, but it’s layered with different ways to look at things. Think of it as a springboard, a thought-starter.
Bite-sized nuggets to improve your life
I listen to a lot of really long podcasts, and it's such an investment of time. These ten-minute podcasts by J Cleveland Payne are such a revalation.The briefness of the podcast means I really focus the whole time, and I found myself reflecting on the podcast later in the day. I really related to the idea that being an expert is often more achievable than we think. I suffer from imposter syndrome, and it's helpful to think about how I can present myself as being what I aim to be instead of worrying that I'm not there yet.
Simple & actionable
Really like the quick 10-minute lessons I can walk away with couple times a week. Payne comes off as a pro with relatable examples; for example talking about the fitness trainer and how she was able to help her potential clients see beyond the cover.
