Stop Trusting Your Brain and Be More Productive

podcast Oct 30, 2019

As a productivity expert, I have a lot of tips for how to become more productive. But without a doubt, my #1 tip is to help your brain by capturing everything you need to remember to do someplace…immediately.

Why is it so important to capture thoughts immediately?

You’ve probably heard of Murphy’s Law: whatever can go wrong, will. But my productivity version of this is: that which you need to remember the most is the first thing you’ll forget.

Here are four ideas for helping your brain out so that your productivity doesn’t suffer.

How to be Productive When Working Remotely

podcast Oct 23, 2019

A May 2018 study by Zug, a Switzerland-based serviced office provider IWG found that 70 percent of professionals work remotely at least one day a week, while 53 percent work remotely for at least half of the week.

A survey by Global Workplace Analytics and FlexJobs indicates that remote work has grown 91% over the last 10 years, and 159% over the last 12 years.

There’s working from home and there’s working from home and being productive. There is a difference.

Here are seven ideas for how to be productive while working remotely.


If you went to work at a “real job” (whatever that means) in a corporate office, you’d have a dedicated area in which to work. This may be an office, a cubicle or an area.

You need the same for when working remotely – like at home.

This could be a spare bedroom converted into an office or a corner of a room such as a dining room or kitchen.

Why this is important: it’s a mindset thing....

How to Have Energy to Be Productive

podcast Oct 16, 2019

Have you ever had one of the those days when it feels as if you’re dragging concrete blocks around all day?

No matter what you try to do to get more energy – drink an absurd amount of caffeine, splash cold water on your face or jump up and down shaking your arms, nothing seems to work.

That’s because you’re too late.

The time to create energy is before you need it.

Here are five ideas for you to get more energy so you can be more productive.


The experts recommend 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night.

Not sometimes.

Not whenever you can “fit it in”.

Every night.

Your body needs 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night.

There is a lot of research out there for how to get a good night sleep but instead of me summarizing it here, do yourself (and your productivity) a favor and go grab Arianna Huffington’s book, The Sleep Revolution (affiliate link). It’ll rock your world…and help you get the sleep your body needs.

How to F.O.C.U.S.

podcast Oct 09, 2019

According to a 2015 study from Microsoft Corp., people generally lose concentration after eight seconds.

I read that last sentence out loud in what I consider average speed and it took me eight seconds.

Eight seconds is not a lot of time.

I decided to search what can be accomplished in eight seconds and I discovered that most people can tie a tie, run up 25 steps and insert their debit card into an ATM and enter their PIN.

I also discovered that I could throw our 16-month old and very active puppy her tennis ball to the other side of our yard and have her bring it back to me.

No matter how you slice it, eight seconds is not a lot of time.

But your attention (focus) is needed in order for you to be productive.

Here is how you can become more focused and therefore more productive.
