3 Easy Strategies for Improved Productivity

podcast May 10, 2019

In this episode, I discuss three things you can do to improve your productivity. And these are easy to understand but whether or not they are easy to implement is up to you.

Happiness

I run every day and right now, I’m listening to the audio book, The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor (affiliate link). Get this book! How happy are you? Now what you tell your friends. Not what you tell yourself. The truth.

Sleep

I talked about this before but it needs repeating because the data shows so many people around the world are not getting enough sleep. Minimum is 8. I’ve read estimates up to 10 hours. You need to sleep as long as you need to … as long as it is at least 8 hours. Read Arianna Huffington's The Sleep Revolution (affiliate link).

Movement

You gotta move. Every day. No excuses. I don’t care what you do to move…just move.
