    Steven Kotler - Living in "Flow" to Reach Your Peak Performance (Ep 319)

    Steven Kotler studied journalism, poetry, and writing in school. When he told others about his plans to conduct a neurobiological study, some literally laughed in his face. But Steven’s interviews with Flow State experts made him an authority on the subject, and he set out to help others reach peak performance.
    He now works with entrepreneurs, athletes, and leaders of some of the biggest companies in the world, helping them reach this state of “Flow” to become up to 500% more productive. He is also a 4 x NYT Bestselling Author. According to Steven, Flow is how you turbo boost your results beyond all expectations.
    In this episode of Why Not Now?, Steven and Amy Jo talk about overcoming imposter syndrome, how to get into Flow and how living a “Flow” Lifestyle can bring more purpose and happiness into our lives. They also talk about the difference in mindset between peak performers and non-peak performers.
    Steven tells Amy Jo that we have 5 major intrinsic motivators: curiosity, passion, purpose, autonomy, and mastery. To perform at our best, they must all point in the same direction. That is when we reach our Flow State.

    Amy Jo Martin - Part 3 How To Reinvent Your Day & Relationship With Time (Ep 315)

    Amy Jo Martin - Part 3 How To Reinvent Your Day & Relationship With Time (Ep 315)

    This is the final episode of Amy Jo’s 3 part series all about reinventing your relationship time and money. We encourage you to listen to Part 1 (Ep 313) and Part 2 (Ep 314) before pushing play on Part 3.
    In this last installment, Amy Jo focuses on the money side of things. To be clear, this is not investment advice, but you will learn how to potentially earn more and save more.
    Amy Jo shares her specific money story and how that has changed over the last ten years. The net/net? Sacrifice does not equal success. Period.
    Our earning potential is highest when we are expanding our capacity and optimizing our bandwidth. Sometimes that means spending money to create more time. Amy Jo explains how. She also shares what she is looking at specifically in her budget, and how she uses that data to determine if she is operating at her full earning potential.
    You’ll learn the importance of assigning a value to your hours, and start making decisions based on the value of your time, as well as the difference in approaching finances from a confident place as opposed to doing so out of fear, and with a scarcity mindset.
    Finally, Amy Jo takes you through the 5 Renegade Rules as a refresher so you can apply the rules to what you’ve learned over the last 3 episodes and beyond.

She has been doing this exercise for over ten years. These actionable items go hand in hand with her goal to reinvent her relationship with time and money. It’s not too late to do this exercise yourself. Amy Jo dives into the “now what?” and how to execute on your goals for the year.
    You’ll learn the tactics and indicators on how to know when you are tapped and trapped, how to know when you are creating momentum and when you are on the right track to increasing your capacity and expanding your bandwidth.
    Amy Jo explains what the Ruthless Red Pen is and how you can use it, as well as how to deal with what she calls Bandwidth Bankrupters. You’ll learn the important questions to ask yourself before you decide to take another “hey can I pick your brain?” meeting.
    Lastly, Amy Jo shares the Three S’s and what they mean for your bandwidth and capacity.
    This episode is packed with tactics to get you on your way to your reinvention goals. In Part 3, Amy Jo will breakdown how these tools and reinvention mindset applies to money.
