For years, I've had a standing goal to read 52 books every year. But I recently learned something that has me re-thinking that.
The 5 AM Club, The: Own Your Morning. Elevate Your Life. (Robin Sharma)
I've decided to release a brand new episode every single day in 2021. Many episodes will be interviews with incredible guests but when there's not an interview, I'll release an episode to share my journey with you.
What do you do the first 60 to 90 minutes after you wake up?
I want you to think about that.
So maybe your alarm clock goes off, or maybe you naturally wake up.
What do you do?
Do you roll back over and try to get a few more minutes of sleep?
Or do you do what I do?
Something I learned from Robin Sharma's bestselling book, The 5 AM Club, is I get up at five o'clock in the morning, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
I get up, put my feet on the floor, immediately make my bed.
Then, I get...

Complexity is the gateway to procrastination.
Let me write that again in case you missed it: complexity is the gateway to procrastination.
So what do you do?
Simplify, simplify, simplify.
Make things as simple as possible.
I challenge you to look at your processes, your systems, what you do personally and professionally every day. Think about how you can simplify it.
We wear this badge of honor called complexity.
Oh, "my process or my system is so complicated. Yay, for me".

Should you use a to-do list or a calendar?
You should use both a to-do list and a calendar. They both serve a function. There are a lot of people out there who are productivity experts like me who will tell you that truly successful people only use a calendar. They don't use a to-do list. They put everything on a calendar.
And you can watch other videos and read other blog posts and listen to other...
My wife and I have an older car.
And so one of the things we have to do on a regular basis is to check the
When cars get older, sometimes they leak oil.
So, we have to check the oil because you don't want to be driving down the road and have no oil in your car because the engine will seize up.
And that's, well, that's not good.
So, are you checking your oil every day?
Now, I don't mean you have a dipstick and you actually check your oil,
But how's your attitude?
I'm a daily runner.
In fact, I have run every single day for over 1200 days in a row.
And I used to go out running listening to music, to a podcast, or to an audiobook.

By not listening to music or to a podcast or to an...
