Yesterday, I spent quality time with my niece and nephew who are visiting us from Los Angeles. Early in the day, I didn’t think I would be able to meet them at the aquatic center in town.
But, by using the same techniques I’m teaching this month at www.GetMomentum.co, I freed up 75 minutes, stopped working early, and enjoyed time practicing my diving board moves with the kids at the pool!
How do you get things done so that you get to a place where you can stop and feel
good about leaving work and...
play with the kids?
go out on a date?
read a novel?
ride your bike?
go to the beach?
You get momentum...
Take this month’s Town Hall webinar as an example. In just 45 minutes, you will learn at least 5 ways to get more things done each day.
This month’s topic is: Productivity Through Technology. This is the most popular seminar we present for corporate training departments. For Get Momentum members worldwide, I also add all kinds of Bonus Tips in the Monthly Module and Town Hall webinar.
Get Momentum members in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Norway, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Italy will finally get some answers on how to:
1. Maximize the technological tools they have at work and in life;
2. Save up to 1 hour/day using these tools;
3. Feel much more productive, as they make improvements to their personal organization, productivity tools and workplace strategies.
At the heart of Get Momentum is a focus on developing your self-awareness. The more you know about the 12 professional skills we study each year - one skill each month - the more successful you will be.
The key to this success is the information PLUS the accountability support.
Become a member by 9am PST on Wednesday, July 25th so you can attend the LIVE presentation of our Town Hall. By showing up to the live webinar, you make it responsive to your own interests and get your personal questions answered. We design it to be interactive.
If you join Get Momentum after the date I present the webinar live, you’ll be able to watch a recording of it, as well as gain COMPLETE access to the ENTIRE archive of Town Hall webinars.
Welcome, you’re about to Get Momentum.
As Steve Jobs once said, “I think this is the start of something really big. Sometimes that first step is the hardest one, and we've just taken it.”
Based on a conversation I had recently with a Get Momentum member living and working in Europe, we recognized that “making habits” may just be one of the least productive things someone can do.
Are you looking to build new habits? Be careful…Ok?
Surely you’ve got something on a project or task list that you’ve not had time to “do” just yet. Now, when you think about WHY you haven’t done that thing - whatever it is…be it personal OR professional - surely you could claim that you “haven’t had the time to do it.” That would mean that you’ve got OTHER things to do that are getting in the way of that ONE THING you want done. So, this begs the question:
Are the things you’re doing being done because (and only because) they’ve always been done? If the answer is anywhere on this shade of “yes,” I challenge you to question this things.
Good morning from Bali (well, for most of you it’s good afternoon…Right now, I’m 15 hours ahead of California!),
This is my 8th morning of waking up to the tropical, cultural experience of Bali. Since arriving here last Sunday night, I’ve learned a lot about religion, meditation, movement, breathing…Oh, and I’ve learned three things that make the world a better place.
All three of these lessons were taught to me while staying at the Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay.
Have you “mis-communicated” this week? Maybe you said something to someone really, really close to you that looking back, you wish you had not said. If you have had any "mis-fires" in communication recently, you know what happens: the body tenses up, the mind starts spinning, the mouth opens up, and…well...
I got some great advice (on marriage and getting along) from my grandpa on my wedding night on July 4th, 1999. The one idea he shared with me way back then led to this “Element” of studying habits and routines. I have realized over the years – simultaneously – that Jodi and I rarely argue about the “content” we’re discussing; instead, we realize that it’s all in our approach.
There are THREE more things to think about, when it comes to making next year better. Want to read them?
I opened my email up to an article titled, "Are you faking it?" and laughed out loud.
Then…I read about a study designed by some heavy-duty psychologists and thought, "Wow, there's something here."
Why do you want to be more productive? Really?
I read an HBR update recently, a quick note about a study coordinated by Francesca Gino and Michael I. Norton of Harvard Business School and Dan Ariely of Duke University. For quite some time, they have looked at the psychological effects of what happens when people are faking success.
Or are you spending time “getting organized”? Or are you buying a new
app or tool to “make things easier”? Do you need to attend or call yet
You are not alone.
These are ways people typically “manage” their time. But when you
really look at the results, is your approach working for you? Are you
happy with the speed at which you are moving toward your goals? Do you
know what you are moving toward? Is it enough?
Have you ever had a day that was, well, AWEsome? What happened? What did you do, or who did you see, or…where did you go? And, perhaps more importantly, how do you set yourself up to have it happen again?
