How to improve your productivity with ODAE. 

What now? 


ODAE stands for outsource, delegate, automate and eliminate. 

Here's an exercise that give my clients, my audiences and that I'm sharing with you now.

I want you to grab a notebook and for two days, I want you to write down everything you do over the course of the day in your business. 

Why two days? Because no two days are the same. And by doing this exercise for a second day, you're going catch those outliers that you didn't catch on the first day. 

If you write something down on day one, you don't have to write it down again for day two. Do this exercise for two days.

On day four, I want you to schedule a minimum of one hour as a gift to yourself to go through this process of going through every single item on your list that you...

The Danger of All Work and No Play

productivity Aug 01, 2019

In 1980, Jack Nicholson was in the horror film, The Shining.

If you're not familiar with the film, The Shining is about Jack Torrance (Nicholson), an aspiring writer and recovering alcoholic, who accepts a position as the off-season caretaker of the isolated historic Overlook Hotel in the Colorado Rockies. Wintering over with Jack are his wife Wendy Torrance (Duvall) and young son Danny Torrance (Lloyd). Danny possesses "the shining", psychic abilities that enable him to see into the hotel's horrific past. The hotel's cook, Dick Hallorann (Crothers), also has this and is able to telepathically communicate with Danny. The hotel had a previous winter caretaker who went insane and killed his family and himself.

I was 15 when this film came out and when I first saw it, it scared the crap...
