    Best Practices Joe Sanok Used to Write Thursday Is The New Friday

    How does one enter a flow state? How can you prepare your environment to sustain productive work? Why should you protect your brain?
    As Joe was about to start working on his book, he safeguarded his mental clarity by not watching any news, going onto any social media, or doing anything that could regear his brain into a different state than it was in when it was fresh in the morning.
    Here are a few safeguard methods:
    Have a nutritious breakfast and take care of your physical health and well-being. Create a space to consistently work in when you are wanting to go into a flow-state and keep it the same. Structure a routine for that day or when you are working on that task and stick with it. Get creative with drawing and writing with your hand on physical paper or a whiteboard and get analytical by writing on a computer. In this episode, I speak with Angie Morgan about:
    Protect your brain before you enter a task Environment prep Use both sides of your brain

    How Joe Sanok Decided to Design His Life

    How Joe Sanok Decided to Design His Life

    What can we learn from what we used to do? Do you explore your options? How can testing ideas help you incorporate them into your life?
    Even in college, Joe was already working a four-day workweek and did not take any classes on a Friday. He would work productively and structure his years to save money to travel internationally.
    In the beginning, career transitions were off-putting to Joe because they represented becoming fixed on one job with a certain timeline.
    Joe started exploring and listening to a bunch of podcasts to find out how other people had strayed from the norm and made a living for themselves doing what they wanted when they wanted.
    Joe tested what he was learning from those who he admires and began to slowly incorporate their knowledge into his life until he was able to take the lead and create it how he wanted it to be.

    How Fear Prevents Us from Trying New Things

    How Fear Prevents Us from Trying New Things

    Does your fear often stop you from pursuing your goals? Is fear only a messenger? Can you trust yourself to look at what is on the other side of uncertainty?
    1 – Social fear: being afraid to do something foolish that could get you kicked out of your group or community.
    2 – Physical fear: being afraid of physical pain and harm to the body.
    3 – Ego fear: being afraid of feeling bad about yourself.
    When people look at the reality of the fears and question it, we come to find that the fears are not nearly as big as we think.
    Through challenging our fear, we come to find that we catastrophize them. We may be worrying about worrying, instead of feeling anything specific that relates to our current reality.
    Question your fear to find what the root cause of it is, gift yourself with objectivity, and move through it towards your goal.
    Fear should not stop you from doing anything. Fear is only a messenger that is telling you what is important to you, and that can also be a gift.
    In this episode, I speak with Angie Morgan about:
    Three types of fear Worrying about worrying Look what is on the other side Thanks for listening! I'd love to connect with you over on Instagram!

    Response to Naysayers of Thursday Is The New Friday

    Response to Naysayers of Thursday Is The New Friday

    How do you respond to the idea behind Thursday is the New Friday? Does it challenge you? How can Thursday is the New Friday challenge the working status quo?
    If you are unsure about the message behind Thursday is the New Friday, then question it. Poke it where you think it should be poked and try to find places where it can improve.
    At the same time, it challenges you back and asks you why things should stay the same, why the status quo is the better option.
    Even if the change seems foreign now, remember that the future is expansive, and change is slow.
    Never say never because things can change. What was normal one hundred years ago was people working 60-hours a week, and what is normal to us now is anywhere between 20- to 40-hours a week.
    If a four-day workweek is something that does not sit well with you, then you do not have to adopt it, but look at the studies.
    Recent research has shown time and time again how taking small breaks in between working boosts your capacity for focus and productivity.
    In this episode, I speak with Angie Morgan about:
    Challenge and be challenged Never say never Look at the studies

    Stories Inside Thursday Is The New Friday

    Stories Inside Thursday Is The New Friday

    What would previous generations think of the possibility of this much freedom? How can the work schedule of previous generations alert us to the current opportunities for freedom? How can we set up the lives of our children to have more freedom and joy than we do? 
    Writing the book brought opportunities for learning and gaining a deeper understanding of time. With that understanding comes the knowledge that we have the power to change it to suit us.
    One of the stories inside Thursday is the New Friday is about Joe Sanok’s grandfather and the intensive work schedule that he lived by.
    Seeing the progression over generations from what previous family members did to what people are doing now is humbling and inspiring.
    The work that can be done now is what people can leave behind for their children. Currently, we are in the position to create a flexible space for future generations to make their schedules into what they need them to be.
    In this episode, I speak with Angie Morgan about:

    How Thursday Is The New Friday is Structured

    How Thursday Is The New Friday is Structured

    How is Thursday is the New Friday structured? How does each section of the book support the philosophy behind Thursday is the New Friday? Who is this book for?
    Time is deconstructed at the beginning of the book to show that almost all modern-day work time has been made up.
    The next section of the book discusses why slowing down is necessary for both human satisfaction and health, as well as productivity.
    What happens in the brain when people slow down? How does that encourage creativity?
    Once you have learned how to slow down and welcomed the lessons that it brings, the next step is taking those lessons and setting a faster pace for yourself that is informed by your well-being and revved up to accomplish your wishes.
    In this episode, I speak with Angie Morgan about:
