How to perform in a state of distraction-free concentration that pushes your cognitive [thinking, reasoning, or remembering] capabilities to their limit. These efforts create new value, improve your skill, and allow you to do deep work to grow your small business. David Begin and Henry Lopez discuss the practice and habit of concentrated time blocks of focused work, which is critical to completing valuable work and yet becoming increasingly rare in our current lives. You may call this Time Blocking, or Time Boxing, although it's not just about time management. You may also refer to it as Focus Time or as Call Newport named it: Deep Work. We will discuss just a few of the key points of the book “Deep Work” by Cal Newport – we encourage you to read this book to learn more about this important topic. Henry Lopez is the host of The How of Business podcast – helping you start, run and grow your small business. The How of Business is a top-rated podcast for small business and entrepreneurs.

This episode is inspired by two books, So Good They Can't Ignore You by Cal Newport and Born Standing Up by Steve Martin.  If you're ready to achieve wild success in anything you do, you need to become great at it.  This takes time, dedication, and a willingness to be uncomfortable.  Overnight success rarely happens. And when it does, it's not sustainable. ----------------------------------------------- Welcome to Ever Better Today: the daily podcast for creating your optimal business, career, or overall life in ten minutes or less. I'm Lisa Conners Vogt, Executive and Leadership Coach and founder of Ever Better Coaching and Consulting. Let's jump in! --------------------------------------------- Here's how Steve Martin became so good… He honed his magic and entertainment skills in a variety of “unglamorous” jobs.  He started performing for very small audiences and learned from negative feedback. He refused to give up and continued to hone his skills as a stand-up comedian. He went on tour at colleges and universities which led him to perform on much bigger stages, stadiums, and venues.  He recognized that performing in very large venues left him empty and unsatisfied because his passion was to connect with his audience.   As a comedian, he created transferrable skills that he applied to acting, producing and music.   When he reached financial success he became a philanthropist and an art collector. Steve Martin's advice, “be so good they can't ignore you” was the inspiration for Cal Newport's book.

6 Top Routines of Highly Successful Entrepreneurs

Work Life Balance Podcast: Business | Productivity | Results

Every businessperson typically follows some kind of routine. Whether this routine means getting out of bed at the same time every day, taking a hike every weekend, or simply going to the same place for their coffee. Routines are created to give order in a disorganized world. It brings clarity and focus to your daily life. It also provides the absolute satisfaction of having laid-out steps and processes to follow every day. Routines feel like a planned-out day where everything is scheduled to go ahead without a hitch. Successful entrepreneurs make use of routines in their lives. This has helped them organize their activities, improve their productivity, and give them a clear and uncluttered focus of their life and business goals. To align your business goals with your daily activities and tasks, these are 6 routines of highly successful entrepreneurs you can emulate. 1. Morning Routine Do you have a morning routine? Do you wake up early in the morning, or do you sleep late into the morning? Most successful entrepreneurs wake up very early in the morning and have a morning routine. It can be meditating, exercising, or having a leisurely breakfast. A routine can be responding to emails, or reading business memos and industry updates, which I don't recommend you do first thing after waking up. It can also be reviewing and planning their time blocks and scheduling other activities for the day. When you get up early, you have the advantage of being aware of an unencumbered peace and quiet. This can allow you to focus on personal or business activities without interruption. It also allows you to be available and ahead of demands. Having a morning routine also helps you feel confident and focused on the challenges the day may bring. 2. No Limit on Workdays Though it is very important to have rest days, successful entrepreneurs are known to work when they don't have to. Weekends blur into holidays and vacation days blur into workdays for many successful businesspeople. This shows that they are highly focused and committed to the tasks that they are ready to achieve. They have no set limitation on a day and are set to work whenever inspiration strikes. Carry a notepad and a pen to jot down innovative ideas that may strike when you are doing something unrelated to work, or take notes on your phone (whichever works the best for you). The best ideas cannot be controlled and confined to a specific time slot. 3. Challenging Tasks are Handled First Successful entrepreneurs typically handle more challenging tasks first. Unlike most business professionals who procrastinate on the important tasks and handle all the easy tasks first, high achievers understand the benefits of handling challenging tasks first. Most people start the day with smaller tasks such as emails, messages, memos, easy client service tasks, etc. However, the mornings are when the brain is at its peak for most people. When they decide to handle the more challenging tasks, the brain is working at a less optimal rate which easily causes exhaustion and lesser quality results. Handle your challenging tasks when your brain is working at its peak. By doing this, you can formulate better plans, make better decisions, solve complex problems, and generate creative ideas to set your business on its path to even greater success. Brian Tracy wrote a book called Eat That Frog. “Eat that frog!” basically means to start your day with the biggest, most important, and most dreaded task. It's also the task you are most likely to procrastinate on. Brian Tracy is also about disciplining yourself to eat that frog first thing in the morning every single day. 4. Calendar Time Blocking Practice Instead of planning your personal and business activities in different calendars, successful entrepreneurs make use of calendar time blocking practices that comprise planning all their activities in one place. Online planners and calendar schedulers make it easy to practice this routine. Since they can be easily accessed from multiple devices, this type of scheduling is the preferred choice for successful entrepreneurs and allows them to be as productive as possible. Did you know that some of the most productive people in the world swear by time blocking? Ever heard of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Michael Hyatt, or Cal Newport? Yep – all time-blockers. They're squeezing every drop of productivity from their days, and you can do the same. 5. Rest after Tasks are Completed It is one thing to have tasks to complete. It is another when you can take a break after these tasks are completed. Successful entrepreneurs understand the benefits of resting after tasks are completed. They understand that the brain needs to rest and refuel. There is also the satisfaction and motivation of completing tasks efficiently and successfully. If you are challenged and often feel overwhelmed by all the work you have to do, set a small reward at the end of each completed task or every 90 minutes. This can help increase focus knowing that you get a break. The break can be meditation, a short walk around the building, a power nap, or whatever will give your brain a quick rest to rejuvenate. 6. They Value Teamwork Successful entrepreneurs understand the value of teamwork. They understand that different people have different strengths and weaknesses, and the right team can make up for each other's flaws. When you understand that you cannot go at it alone and achieve your goals, you gain important teamwork skills such as active listening, delegating, and compromise. Successful entrepreneurs understand that being successful has little to do with being independent but harmoniously utilizing valuable skills from different people.

Today we spoke with Ben Darwin - Director Gain Line Analytics, Former Australia Pro Rugby Player and Coac. Ben had to retire from professional rugby prematurely due to a severe neck injury. Here's the story about what he's done since, and why he went this way...examining team cohesion and teamwork indices that contribute to consistent winning and on-field success. Ben propped for the Brumbies and the Wallabies, before embarking on analytics and forward coach positions with teams such as Western Force, Melbourne Rebels and Suntory in Japan. His company, Gain Line, founded in 2013, is changing the game around data analytics revealing that great teams are the product of the connections and linkages within. There is a wonderful dialogue around the structural layers that drive cohesion in teams, namely shared experiences, combinations and the overarching system - one for pro sport and business. As distinct from other operations and management consultancies in the industry, Gain Line places a strong focus on data analysis and quantitative research. We really appreciate this as the solutions are backed by evidence and real-world experience, like our worlds in physio and sports medicine. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Highlights

Work Life Balance Podcast: Business | Productivity | Results

Rarely is anything an overnight success. It can take years of hard work before it pays off, and that can be a hard truth to accept. But there are tips and tricks, or habits really, that you can implement into your daily life to pave the way to a successful future for you and your company. These tricks, that I'm about to share, are a mix of productivity hacks as well as personal life hacks to help you perform at your best and build an extraordinary legacy. With practice, they'll become second nature, and allow you to free up your mental bandwidth to tackle the tasks that will grow your business exponentially. 1. Prioritize Taking Accountability As a business owner, you're responsible not only for your own outcomes, but the outcomes of the people you hire. A great leader has insight into the day-to-day operations of their business and has the ability to empower their team as well as step in when needed. Additionally, you can't expect your team to take accountability for their actions and decisions if you don't set an example first. Taking accountability in everyday situations helps you to learn how to take responsibility for your destiny overall. You are in charge of your success, and when you get into the practice of taking action instead of making excuses, you'll go further than ever. 2. Take Care of Yourself Greatness can't be achieved when your body and your mental health aren't performing optimally. The idea of hustling 24/7 and wearing burnout as a badge of honor is outdated. In order to succeed, you need to take care of your body. That might mean incorporating a consistent workout routine into your day, whether that's early in the morning or later in the afternoon. Some people prefer to start their day by getting their body moving, which may actually promote greater productivity. Pay attention to how your body feels throughout the day. Are you getting enough sleep? Or are you powering through on a bad night's sleep? According to a 2016 business school study, leaders who prioritized sleep were perceived as more charismatic. 3. Turn Off as Many Notifications as You Can Phones can be the primary way in which you do your work, but they can also be incredibly distracting. Turning off notifications to the apps that you don't need to be looking at can help you focus and be more productive. Even if you use social media for your business, block off some time each day on your calendar as the designated time to engage with your social media audience. That way, your train of thought and workflow aren't interrupted each time your phone pings with a new like or comment. You can even check out some apps that help limit your screen time, so you can spend your time building your ideal business. One trick to avoiding distractions is putting your phone face down, turn off sounds and vibrations, or even put the phone in another room, while you work on the task at hand. 4. Never Stop Learning The true secret to greatness is not being someone who knows everything, but being someone who is curious about everything. When you acknowledge what you don't know and ask questions to learn more, you have the potential to increase your knowledge exponentially. Being open to learning helps you stay relevant to current trends. Not sure why you should use a specific platform for your business? Instead of writing it off because you don't know how to use it, spend some time diving into the opportunities to reach your audience on a new platform, or grow your audience base into a newer demographic. Being able to admit you don't know something is a strength, and it frees you of the fear that people will think you don't know everything because by your own words, you don't. 5. Block Off Your Time It can be hard to hop from one task to another, or deal with multiple people asking you questions. Take control of your own schedule and block off time for the various tasks you need to do. That way, you can streamline your workflow and free up mental bandwidth to deal with whatever's in front of you during that time block. If you're more productive in the mornings, set aside a couple of hours to work on bigger tasks. Include blocking off time for things like visionary strategizing. Being able to brainstorm and have the space to read, listen to podcasts, or just let inspiration strike you in general, is hugely beneficial to the growth and success of your business. An example of time blocking on your calendar could be exercising from 7am to 8am, working on the next quarter's strategy from 8am to 10am, responding to emails from 10am to 10:30am, answering team questions from 10:30am to 11am, and so forth for the rest of your day. Blocking off time also gets you into the practice of setting boundaries, which are necessary for making sure you get the time or support you need to achieve greatness. Some of the most productive people in the world swear by time blocking. Ever heard of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Michael Hyatt, or Cal Newport? Yep – they are all time-blockers. They're squeezing every drop of productivity from their days, and so can you. 6. Surround Yourself with People Who Inspire You When you surround yourself with people who inspire you, you create an atmosphere for growth. A successful mindset is contagious, and you will learn more from people who have strengths to complement your weaknesses. Running a business can be isolating at times, which is why it's important to connect with other business owners and entrepreneurs. Not only will they understand what you go through with your business, they'll be able to support you as you inevitably face challenges while building your legacy. Together, you can continue to inspire and motivate one another. 7. Keep a Notepad By Your Bed You never know when a great idea is going to hit you. The most practical tip of this list is to keep a notepad by your bed, or just near you at all times. Maybe it's easier for you to track ideas on your phone, though that could undermine tip #3 if your phone just serves to distract you further. Entrepreneurs tend to struggle with perfectionism, so make sure that doesn't happen when you jot down ideas. They don't need to be fully fleshed out—just get them down, physically on paper, so you can revisit them and think through them later on. Writing things down, instead of thinking them or even typing them out, can enable a higher level of thinking. 8. Embrace Making Mistakes As cliché as it sounds, making mistakes is a part of life. But what can be debilitating is letting a fear of making mistakes limit your ability to grow. Instead of fearing mistakes, embrace them! When you fear mistakes, it makes you unable and unwilling to try new things. Instead, when you embrace failure, it takes away its power over you. So, you might fail….so what? You'll learn from it and get even stronger. By following these eight tips, you'll find yourself even stronger as a leader and as an individual. You may not notice the changes overnight, but they'll be there. Stop being stagnant in your growth and take actionable steps to hack your way to greatness.

10 Consistent Habits of Successful Entrepreneurs

The most successful entrepreneurs have a foundation of creating good habits or setting up a system to make tiny changes that deliver big results. With everything you have to do each day, your time is very precious, and it's incredibly important for you to be intentional with each minute that you have. Creating daily habits will not only help your efficiency, it will also help you to grow and become a better person over time. Here are ten habits of successful entrepreneurs that you can implement into your daily life or implement even better. 1. Create a Routine When you have a set routine, you know what comes next and don't need to spend time figuring out how to make the most of your day. Start with a set morning routine, whether that's exercising in the morning, taking the dog for a walk, enjoying breakfast with your family, or going straight into your workday. If you're a morning person, your routine might start with a 6am jog, breakfast, and coffee while you read a motivational blog or watch a YouTube video. Whatever your routine, stick to it for success that lasts. 2. Use Time Blocking for Ultimate Productivity Time blocking is the act of scheduling out each moment of your day on your calendar (https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/how-to-increase-your-business-efficiency-with-calendar-time-blocks/). You can set aside time for your morning workout, a time for emails (which I strongly recommend is not first thing in the morning), or a time to work on the vision for your company. By focusing on each activity during a specific time block, you can and will increase your productivity, rather than being pulled in many directions. Did you know that some of the most productive people in the world swear by time blocking? Ever heard of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Michael Hyatt, or Cal Newport? Yep – all time-blockers. They're squeezing every drop of productivity from their days, and so can you. 3. Push Yourself Out of Your Comfort Zone The most successful entrepreneurs are constantly pushing themselves out of their comfort zones. Make a habit of going out of your comfort zone, whether it's saying yes to things you normally wouldn't, or taking something just one step farther. Do something that scares you—if you have a healthy relationship with fear, you will grow as both an individual and a successful entrepreneur. 4. Break Down Large Goals into Smaller Goals When you create habits for yourself, you want to make sure you're setting yourself up for success. You can do so by breaking down large goals into smaller, more achievable ones. In fact, sometimes even the smallest changes lead to the biggest results. Bigger goals can be intimidating, but setting and reaching smaller goals can give you a sense of accomplishment that propels you forward. Track your progress along the way, and tweak your goals from a micro-level as you learn from the process. 5. Practice Daily Gratitude Practicing gratitude should be a part of your daily routine as a successful entrepreneur. It can have a positive effect on your energy, your resilience, and ultimately, your business. Studies have shown that practicing gratitude can lead to positive emotional and physical health, which can lead to greater productivity. It is a mindset that needs to be cultivated regularly, and you can do so by keeping a gratitude journal, expressing gratitude daily to team members, clients, family, friends, or peers, and appreciating the people that have helped get you to where you are today. To download my complimentary Gratitude Journal Exercise, go to https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/gratitude/. 6. Set Boundaries Setting boundaries is a habit that may take more time for some more than others to practice. It's not always easy, but it can show you where your energy is best spent. Your boundaries may range from not checking your phone too often, to deciding how much time to speed on one task versus others. Once your boundaries are defined and set, you can more clearly see the priorities and goals needed for your success. 7. Invest in Your Team While investing in your team financially is a great practice, it's even more important to invest in the well-being of your team. Take time to check in on your team members each day and be transparent about what you're working on, especially if providing context will help set them up for success. A truly motivated team is one that knows with absolute certainty that their leader is behind them 100 percent. 8. Set Aside Time for Creative Thinking A great habit to practice is setting aside time for creative thinking. One of the best things you can do for yourself and your business is to allow space and time to innovate, without taking immediate action. When you're blocking time on your calendar, set aside a few hours each week to think about your vision for your business, other companies you can collaborate with, and the initiatives you think will lead to greater success. 9. Stay Physically Active Studies show that regular exercise can increase happiness and improve your energy levels and overall mental health. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs, including Sir Richard Branson and Tim Cook, include exercise among their daily habits. Exercising can also increase creativity and give you the energy needed to tackle the mountains of tasks you have throughout the day. 10. Never Stop Learning Curiosity is an underrated key to success, and it's important to never stop learning. When you're learning new things, you're constantly generating new ideas or innovative solutions to problems. Having a growth mindset allows you to find success by learning from your mistakes and improving upon them. It also helps you to welcome new challenges and increases your resilience to failure. When you never stop learning, you increase your own potential for growth and increased success. Start simple and don't try to change your life overnight. Choose several of these habits and commit to doing them daily (or doing them even better than you are doing them now), and then increase the length of time you are practicing them. When you make the habits easier to achieve in the beginning, you may experience a rush of dopamine as you accomplish them each day, which will lead to a cycle of continuing to do them until they actually become habits you incorporate naturally into your life.

You can do so by breaking down large goals into smaller, more achievable ones. In fact, sometimes even the smallest changes lead to the biggest results. Bigger goals can be intimidating, but setting and reaching smaller goals can give you a sense of accomplishment that propels you forward. Track your progress along the way, and tweak your goals from a micro-level as you learn from the process. 5. Practice Daily Gratitude Practicing gratitude should be a part of your daily routine as a successful entrepreneur. It can have a positive effect on your energy, your resilience, and ultimately, your business. Studies have shown that practicing gratitude can lead to positive emotional and physical health, which can lead to greater productivity. It is a mindset that needs to be cultivated regularly, and you can do so by keeping a gratitude journal, expressing gratitude daily to team members, clients, family, friends, or peers, and appreciating the people that have helped get you to where you are today.

Set Boundaries Setting boundaries is a habit that may take more time for some more than others to practice. It's not always easy, but it can show you where your energy is best spent. Your boundaries may range from not checking your phone too often, to deciding how much time to speed on one task versus others. Once your boundaries are defined and set, you can more clearly see the priorities and goals needed for your success. 7. Invest in Your Team While investing in your team financially is a great practice, it's even more important to invest in the well-being of your team. Take time to check in on your team members each day and be transparent about what you're working on, especially if providing context will help set them up for success. A truly motivated team is one that knows with absolute certainty that their leader is behind them 100 percent. 8. Set Aside Time for Creative Thinking A great habit to practice is setting aside time for creative thinking. One of the best things you can do for yourself and your business is to allow space and time to innovate, without taking immediate action. When you're blocking time on your calendar, set aside a few hours each week to think about your vision for your business, other companies you can collaborate with, and the initiatives you think will lead to greater success. 9. Stay Physically Active Studies show that regular exercise can increase happiness and improve your energy levels and overall mental health. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs, including Sir Richard Branson and Tim Cook, include exercise among their daily habits. Exercising can also increase creativity and give you the energy needed to tackle the mountains of tasks you have throughout the day. 10. Never Stop Learning Curiosity is an underrated key to success, and it's important to never stop learning. When you're learning new things, you're constantly generating new ideas or innovative solutions to problems. Having a growth mindset allows you to find success by learning from your mistakes and improving upon them. It also helps you to welcome new challenges and increases your resilience to failure. When you never stop learning, you increase your own potential for growth and increased success. Start simple and don't try to change your life overnight. Choose several of these habits and commit to doing them daily (or doing them even better than you are doing them now), and then increase the length of time you are practicing them. When you make the habits easier to achieve in the beginning, you may experience a rush of dopamine as you accomplish them each day, which will lead to a cycle of continuing to do them until they actually become habits you incorporate naturally into your life.

10 Consistent Habits of Successful Entrepreneurs

The most successful entrepreneurs have a foundation of creating good habits or setting up a system to make tiny changes that deliver big results. With everything you have to do each day, your time is very precious, and it's incredibly important for you to be intentional with each minute that you have. Creating daily habits will not only help your efficiency, it will also help you to grow and become a better person over time. Here are ten habits of successful entrepreneurs that you can implement into your daily life or implement even better. 1. Create a Routine When you have a set routine, you know what comes next and don't need to spend time figuring out how to make the most of your day. Start with a set morning routine, whether that's exercising in the morning, taking the dog for a walk, enjoying breakfast with your family, or going straight into your workday. If you're a morning person, your routine might start with a 6am jog, breakfast, and coffee while you read a motivational blog or watch a YouTube video. Whatever your routine, stick to it for success that lasts. 2. Use Time Blocking for Ultimate Productivity Time blocking is the act of scheduling out each moment of your day on your calendar (https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/how-to-increase-your-business-efficiency-with-calendar-time-blocks/). You can set aside time for your morning workout, a time for emails (which I strongly recommend is not first thing in the morning), or a time to work on the vision for your company. By focusing on each activity during a specific time block, you can and will increase your productivity, rather than being pulled in many directions. Did you know that some of the most productive people in the world swear by time blocking? Ever heard of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Michael Hyatt, or Cal Newport? Yep – all time-blockers. They're squeezing every drop of productivity from their days, and so can you. 3. Push Yourself Out of Your Comfort Zone The most successful entrepreneurs are constantly pushing themselves out of their comfort zones. Make a habit of going out of your comfort zone, whether it's saying yes to things you normally wouldn't, or taking something just one step farther. Do something that scares you—if you have a healthy relationship with fear, you will grow as both an individual and a successful entrepreneur. 4. Break Down Large Goals into Smaller Goals When you create habits for yourself, you want to make sure you're setting yourself up for success. You can do so by breaking down large goals into smaller, more achievable ones. In fact, sometimes even the smallest changes lead to the biggest results.

Today we spoke with John O'Regan - International ultrarunner, Martial artist, and Running coach John has conquered 7 marathons on 7 continents. This is a story of how a recreational runner learned about his body, studied physiology, and educated himself on the importance of preparation and planning…to conquer remarkable running feats, ultimately representing Ireland in several categories now. He competes in ultratrail, 100k and 24 hour and has a podcast called 'No Finish Line'. John defined ultrarunning for us and discussed why this sport is not crazy - it is about passion. He loves to run and loves where it brings him. Hear about a journey from the Marathon des Sables to Swedish survival training, to the Yukon, Poles - and what's next. John leaned into resilience, how to build it…and how to overcome the moment after the race, when you feel low - when the race is over. We learned about the value of discipline and sticking to a course for a specific goal, and how to listen to your body when you are physically and mentally challenging yourself.

Leading Learning  - The Show for Leaders in the Business of Lifelong Learning, Continuing Education, and Professional Develop

We all know that books play a critical role in both personal and professional learning. They have the power to transform your life and help you achieve your potential in all areas of life. And when it comes to lifelong learning, there are quite a few that stand out as classics. In fact, Jerel Bonner, managing director and co-founder of Corralling Chaos, recently reached out to us to share the particular books he's found most valuable in his work focused on creating authentic leaders and high-performing teams. In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, co-host Jeff Cobb talks with return guest Jerel about four classic books he believes to be essential career resources: The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey, So Good They Can't Ignore You by Cal Newport, Mindset by Carol Dweck, and Grit by Angela Duckworth. They discuss key concepts from each and how to use them to maximize their impact and value.

Cameron, an artist, storyteller, and writer, has been a CEO for 25 years with experience with Melbourne Football Club, Richmond, Fremantle Dockers - and leading the AFL also as CEO. His company, Design CEO, a leadership and strategy business, focuses on helping leaders navigate the hardships and ambiguity of modern leadership. Cameron, a graduate of Harvard Business School today spoke about being a leader, rather than doing, and what it was like holding the role of CEO at the age of 24, the youngest to hold this position in AFL history. He proclaims to “never forget how hard it is”…the travails of a leader, and Cameron opened up for us, displaying remarkable vulnerability - unpacking the lessons of being a father to a trans child, broken families, and having had mental health challenges himself. He spoke about how the hard moments define us, his leadership equation, what he looks for in people, aptitude - and why being in your element is massively important. Highlights

Today we are talking about consistent habit #2 of successful entrepreneurs, which is to Use Time Blocking for Ultimate Productivity.

By focusing on each activity during a specific time block, you can increase your productivity, rather than being pulled in many directions.

I'm happy to have you on I think you're quickly becoming my most regular guest and I'm really happy and thankful for it. So welcome back. Oh, thanks, Karen. I   00:14 appreciate being invited back and I am honored to be a regular it's like the old school while I'm dating myself here with the Johnny Carson Show. I mean, that's, that's going back and I don't want to date either one of us, but it's like, you know, the regular guests that's on there. They can't find anybody. There. Schreier. He's a felon. He didn't come in there and fill up some time.   00:38 Oh, that's so funny. I think I was watching Seth Meyers and Rachel Drac was on and that's what they said, Rachel Drac is like, you know, someone else was supposed to be there. But I don't know if they got sick, or they couldn't make it. And so they called her that afternoon. She was like, Sure. Tell me about her.   00:55 Oh, I've watched a sports show called PTI. Pardon the Interruption around it takes place right in DC. And one of the guys is called Phil and Frank. It's like, if they ever need anybody, someone's out sick. You know, Frank, I saw he, he jumps in and fills in at any, you know, at a moment's notice. So, you know, I don't know if I'll fill in Jamie. But well, well, you're   01:17 not, you're not filling in, you're just a regular guest.   01:22 Thank you, thank you,   01:23 not a fill in. It's just a regular guest. So today, we're going to talk about something I don't think I've really talked about on the podcast, at least, I can't remember talking about this in great detail. And that is, how to hire people how to retain staff, which, you know, as we were speaking before we went on is a problem, not just in physical therapy right now, but in a lot of industries across the board around the country. So let's dive in. So you have four surprisingly simple ways to hire and retain staff. So let's get to it.   02:03 Yeah, I mean, you know, as we know, it's a difficult marketplace. And I think, you know, this shift isn't just a shift that is, oh, they're gonna have a shift, and it's gonna be all fine tomorrow. No, I'm not gonna say it's not a permanent shift, as far as we're always going to have this difficulty, you know, really finding good people. But I do think it's a shift that is going to stay around as far as what people are deeming important, what people are deeming valuable. And I think it's important for us in the hiring marketplace, that we begin to shift how we as business owners, and that's kind of the position, I always come from being a business owner, and you being a business owner, is how we need to shift our way how we think about employees. You know, it's interesting, you know, I speak to so many people every day, every week, whether there are clients or, or just people out and about and in the business industry, and, you know, I can't tell you, Karen, how many times people talk about employees as a cost, right? It's like, oh, how much are they going to cost and, and I don't know if I can afford them, and all they care about is wanting more money, and this and that, and, um, you know, and it, it kind of, it hits me, because I think the first thing we have to do collectively, at least as a group of business owners is start to shift that your employees besides you, your employees are the most important people in your life and your business life. And if you don't mentally look at them as an investment, just like you look at any other investment you're doing, that will bleed into other things. It'll bleed to how you treat them, it'll bleed into some of the things you say are some of the things that you create or benefits or whatever the case is. And I've seen that so often, I used to do that, because I used to kind of think that way is they were a cost come in, do your job, shut up and just leave me alone type of thing. And you know, that is not the right way. It's never been the right way. But now more than ever, that's kind of the premise of all of this is shifting in these people are an investment. And investments are things that you want to nurture. You want to help you want to grow, you want to be assets. And I think it takes that fundamental shift before anything, because if not, everything just becomes an empty strategy or something but it won't hold. It won't have teeth to it. If there isn't that shift and how we think you know what I mean?   04:54 I do I do and I think that's a really great distinction that you made that you for employers to look at their employees as a real investment, because if that employee is nurtured and you help them grow, if they can help grow and expand your business in ways that you never thought could even be possible.   05:17 Exactly. And it sounds simple, it's easy to read in a book or listen on a wonderful podcast, but actually doing it in the moment is not as easy to do. Because we have wiring ourselves, we have thoughts, we have biases, we have upbringings and influences in our lives, as we all do. And these things, you know, whether you call them, you know, limiting beliefs or negative biases, we have all of these things that start to affect how we think and how we communicate. And how we ultimately, you know, put into action, some of these things. And if you don't feel that way, you don't think that way, it will come out, during how you interview how you post an ad. I mean, you know, I can be very honest with you, I know, you know, my ads used to be going on, I don't even know if it was indeed at the time, but going on whatever the latest thing was Craigslist or something, and just looking at another company and just copying their ad. I mean, I didn't know what to say, I didn't really know what I was doing. But I just thought, hey, if the hospital, you know, put an ad up, they must know what they're doing. Because they got you know, a lot of money and they hire good people. So my ad was basically a hospital ad. And what's interesting is, so many so many people continue to do that they, they put up some vanilla job ad on indeed. And they're like, well, this used to work, it ain't working anymore, you cannot do that anymore. It's not going to get you people, and it's certainly not going to get you the right people. You know, the real, the real thing right now is, you know, truly differentiating yourself leading with the positives. And, you know, I know we'll get into this in a second, but really looking at these people looking at these potential employees as investments and learning, how do you meet them? Where they are, right, there's an old marketing term is, you know, you know, meet your prospects, where they are joined the conversation they're having in their brain, which really means is, understand them, perhaps better than they can understand themselves, do your do your research. And, you know, I never knew anything like that. But I think that that's, that's what we all need to do is pause for a second and really understand the type of person that we're looking for, and learn as much about them. And when you're able to do that, you're able to put together what's what's called an employee value proposition, you know, you've we've heard and and we talk marketing, your unique selling proposition, all kinds of different propositions, but this idea of a an EVP and employee value proposition, yes, our job is to seek out and actually sell people on what we have to offer, why they should buy quotes, what we're selling. And it is a different way of looking at it. And for a lot of people, it's uncomfortable, and it's like, I shouldn't have to do that as as some of the things I've heard, you know, I shouldn't have to do that. They should want to work for me, you know, we give the greatest care and, and we're the best at what we do. And we really care about our people and all that it's like, yeah, but so does everybody else.   09:08 That's what I was just thinking doesn't everybody?   09:11 Yeah, I'm okay. And I know you care just a little bit more than I do about quality care. And I know that I mean, but that's, that's the mindset we come with. What we don't come with is we need to put our best foot forward. And we need to understand these people that we are trying I know we hate the S word. But we are trying to I'll say the P word and said persuade them for coming to interview with us. And then if we liked them, persuade them to commit to working for us. And you know what, when you have the ability to get pretty much any job you want out there, you put a posting out that you got 10 potential offers maybe 20 You're in competition with A lot of other people, and you have to realize that and have to do the work. It's not hard work. But it's focused work to understand more about who you're trying to get than you ever needed to do in the past. So that's kind of the premise of the whole thing. Yeah. Yeah. So   10:19 I was gonna say, Is this part of these, like, we mentioned the top kind of simple ways to hire and retain staff, is this part of it? Or is this the background you need to do to get to?   10:32 I think, I think it's the background. I mean, if I mean, you could put it in there. But you know, for this for this conversation, I'm kind of setting the stage of, of the background of where people need to be coming from. I mean, the bottom line is, why should they work for you? It's really that simple. Why should they work for you, because they can work for someone else, no matter what you say, one an hour to an hour. But there's, there's already 10 other people doing the same thing. So you know, one of the things that now we're gonna get into the specifics, you know, one of the things we talked about, you know, we need to treat them like an investment. But it goes beyond that, we need to understand number one thing that every owner needs to do is understand what their worth is. I did some research on this. There's a recent Gallup poll. And they said 60% 64% of employees said that a significant increase in income and benefits. Was there number one won't. Now, which is interesting. It wasn't necessarily number one, a little while ago, it was never number one. For many years, it was never even a top five money was not the focus. Well, it is now and you can't blame them. Because let's say education is a fortune. Right? Some people No, in our industry are saying, it's not even worth it. If you look on paper, just money, you invest in education. And when you get it back, you might be in debt for 20 years before you actually pay it off. Depending if you have 234 100,000, you have inflation, it just cost more to live in some of these cities like yours, and mine, it costs a lot to live wow, you know, you adjust for the insurance that you get, if you do take insurance. It's not covering that. So they expect the employer to do that. So this, this question of, you know, what is their worth? I've heard from so many people that say to me, you know, I can't afford that. And I say, Okay, well, what can you afford? Well, I don't know. And there's the problem. You need to know what this person is worth to your company at the level that you want them working. So for instance, I like to use a three multiple and a typical outpatient example. So if you're a typical outpatient, orthopedics, not, you know, insurance based, most likely, but it really depends. And your multiple of salary, not benefits, not taxes, and it just salary. It has to be at least three times, meaning that if you pay someone 75,000, that person should produce 225,000 in revenue, a three multiple it's just a ballpark. Could it be less than a three? It could be? It really depends how what your expenses are like, what's your rent, like?   13:42 You know, your other overhead and all that kind of stuff to make sure that you can cover all that and still have money for profit, let's not forget, profit. If it's greater than that, you should be really clear you should be fine. So it's our job to really dial in, what can this person generate? And then use that ballpark three times to determine what you can afford. So this shines a light. Karen and I and I've had some recent conversations with people and analyzing their business is shines a light on people's business models, some people's business models, they have this altruistic will I want to do one patient an hour, I'm like, hey, you know, we don't tell people what your model should be. We just tell you whether it's going to be profitable. And it's going to achieve the goals that you want, especially especially to financial goals. So if you do one patient an hour at $100 a visit, I can tell you right now there is no way you're ever going to be able to afford the people to work for you. That stay with you. It's It's literally impossible, because there's not enough money. Let's say it's one patient an hour that's at the greatest 808 A day Don't eat everyday, which is not going to happen. So let's say it's 30 or 35, you know, a week at 100 bucks 3500, that's 14,000 a month, that's 120 450 $160,000 Eat, you're gonna afford $50,000 therapists. And most people don't look at it like that care. And they go into this. And they look at it in the Yeah, but I want to deliver, you know, quality care one an hour, but they don't they haven't done all the numbers, whether they can actually build a business on that. Now, can they work for themselves and be like you and I were talking about before the show solopreneur? Sure, they can do that, you can just give yourself a job. And you might be able to make some decent money, but that's the job, right? That's just a self employed job. And if that's what you want, that's fine. But if you want to hire people and actually build a business, where gives you freedom, you're going to have to make a decision. But that's, that's so many times where people kind of have the wake up call and be like, oh, man, I need to change kind of how we're doing No wonder I don't have any money in the bank, even though we're 90% utilization. And that's a horrible feeling. When you're working your butt off, everyone's working their butt off, and there's still no money. That's a fundamental flaw. So that's, that's kind of the surprisingly simple way is just get clear on what you can afford. Use the three times as just a guideline and see what a you expect them, how productive do you expect them to be? Is it 80% 85%, whatever visits you want, multiply that by how much you get paid per visit, and just see what that looks like. That's where you need to start, then you can answer the question how much you can afford, you can answer the question what the therapist is worth to your practice, how much they can generate. And at least it gives you more data to know if the person says 80,000, and you never given anybody more than 72 You know what you might be able to afford that. And it might be a really good hire if they're a good fit. So anyways, that's that's kind of a the the number one thing that I'll start with?   17:13 Yeah, I think that's great, practical, easy to understand. What's next, what else can we do to hire the right people?   17:20 Yeah. So number two is a biggie. And this is, comes to Forbes magazine talks about this, I call it be on purpose, be on purpose. According to Forbes, employees want to work for a company that has a purpose, right. And we have a such a deep purpose. Us as as therapists, caregivers, we are healers. We're healing the world. And sometimes that message gets lost. Sometimes we forget that message about what we're really doing. Sometimes we speak about metrics and productivity, and we lose the message about what we're doing this for. And other times, it's all about the quality of the quality. And we have a business that is in financial instability. So how do we become on purpose? Well, the first thing is we have to get a vision, we have to get a vision as Simon Sinek talked about a vision as a just cause there was an interesting TED talk that he was talking about, or maybe it wasn't a TED talk, it was just a video, but he was talking about having a just cause a vision needs to be your Northstar. A vision needs to be inspiring. And the first person your vision needs to inspire is you. If you're not inspired by envision, like, you know, caring if it's like, what's your vision, you share a vision and you're like, so, you know, how do you feel about there and like, whatever. If you're not inspired, you're not going to share that vision to others. And if you don't have a vision, we'll put in values. Your values don't have to be these company values that you see in whatever commercials and they're on some rock outside the thing. Values are your beliefs. What do you believe in? What do you believe about the work that you do? Why is this work so darn important to you? People want to be connected to something they can get a job working anywhere. So why do they want to work for you? What are you about? What is your story in your business? I share my story a lot I've shared it on on your podcast many many times. And more people come up to me and say oh my god, I resonated with your story. I didn't have a fire and burned down my place but I've had some really difficult times. We are story people we love movies. We love plays. We love dying. Begin to stories. What is it about your business? How did you get started what it means to you, because during an interview, that's what people are going to connect to. That's what's being on purpose. So take some time and write down what your vision is, what your story is, what your values are, what does this mean to you? And use that with your current team, of course. But also you can use that in your interview process.   20:30 Yep, I love it. That was a huge part of what I did. You know, maybe two years ago, I was really being intentional and looking at mission, vision and values, and really understanding why I do what I do, why I started my practice, why I decided to go out on my own. And it was really enlightening, and made me appreciate the business that I have so much more. So if if you are a business owner out there, and you haven't, like maybe you've written down like a mission, vision and values A while ago, just to have it on your website, or just to do it, I would suggest go back, revisit it and really think about who you are as a person why you decided to start your practice what is really important to you. Another thing that I talked about at ascend, and that we did in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 small business program was they had us find like a totem. So this totem could be, it could be a phrase, it could be a physical object. It could be a mythical creature, if you will, whatever you want. That encapsulates why you do what you do or encapsulates your vision. And I remember thinking, told them, I don't know what I don't know what that what do I told them? And they're like, yeah, just let it. And then I was like, Oh, of course I do. Because it's been my sort of guidance for, I don't know, 18 years now. So even before I moved to New York City, before I started my practice, I was sort of obsessed with the cathedral by Rodin, which is two right hands coming together. So when you look at it quickly, it looks like a right and a left hand is actually two right hands. So it's two right hands coming together, not touching. So I always looked at that is like therapist and patient coming together with space in the middle to kind of grow and move. But you could take that into you and an employee, it could be you and a partner, but it's coming together, but not fully. But having that space in the middle having space for new things to come. So that was kind of my totem. And I didn't even realize it until I did this went deeper into this process two years ago. So I highly suggest people if you've already done it, do it again.   23:08 Yeah, you know it. I love I love your story in a lovely, what you're sharing, you know, I think that as as highly left brain analytical, very smart people. I think sometimes we have a difficult time going deep. Cal Newport, who actually is here in Georgetown universe, Georgetown, you know, talks about deep work going below the superficial. And we have a tough time with that. I don't know if we have a tough time being vulnerable, which I know we do. A lot of people do. But vulnerability is power. That'll be maybe my next talk here. But I you know, we have a tough time of going below the superficial and going into the real deep, where the real work happens. The feelings, the emotions, the connections of why do you do what you do? You don't have to you can do anything you want. Why this? You don't have to start your business. No one forced you to why it's bigger than I didn't like my boss. That's why he started. It's bigger than that. You have to go deeper. And when you do you get such clarity. And because when clarity happens, you get power. You get confidence and you get dialed in. And when you have that kind of focus, that's where magic happens. Because other than that, it's a noisy world and it's easy to get distracted. I mean it's easy to get distracted by everybody else's stuff. So, so important, because here's the thing when you when you are dialed in on your your vision, your story, what who you are I'll tell you what One thing is going to happen, these people are going to come into your world candidates or whatever they're going to know who you are, they're going to know what you're about, they're going to know where you're headed. Now, whether they choose to be a part of it or not, that's their choice. But there's not going to be a confusion about what you're about. And you know what, give me that every day of the week, because what I don't want is there. They're just there. It's kind of like, everybody else, stand for something, draw a line. And it starts by doing that deep work. So that's number two. My next one is, is one of my favorites. It's higher for traits train for skill. I feel as as an industry, that we have become infatuated with advancement. And I don't, and if   25:52 you mean all those initials after your name,   25:56 well, we'll carry on, let's just say it we've become infatuated with, with with certifications, with initials with with almost to say, Karen, I got 28 initials. Karen, I'm better than you. I'm a good person. I'm a great therapist, because I'm really, really smart. Well, guess what, Karen, you were smart, when you graduated, you're smarter than better than 1%, you know, then the other 99% of the world, you were already smart? How much more do you need for you to look in the mirror and say, You know what, you're good enough. You're okay, because you can't remember 90% of the stuff that you're learning anyways, I don't know where that certification and that more and more is better. I mean, there's definitely a financial part there. Because, of course, people get paid for the more education and there's people that are doing that, that are highly paid. But you know, this idea of the more letters the better all be. Now, here's the problem with hiring with that, because you're like, Jamie, we're gonna how's the connection? The connection is this. Because you can get enamored with a resume with someone that has two things, one, a lot of experience, we love that. And to a lot of initials, because in our head, we've taken that, and I've had people tell me that on so many occasions, well, will they have experience in a ton of certifications? I go, and well, I just assume I go, Yeah, I just hope that they would, I thought that they would what? Well, I just thought that because of that they would just be this amazing person that walked in, and they would do things the way that I would do them. They would just own it. And they would just be amazing. And I said, yeah, no, that's not what makes them amazing. You see, being a professional is not about having all that stuff. It's okay to have it if you want to have it if you want to learn, but you know, what? What are the traits, the characteristics that you're looking for with a person? Whether it's a front desk, whether it's a therapist, whether it's a clinical director? Who are they? Who are you looking for, because that the person that's going to walk in, and that's the person you're gonna get. The other aspects the skill, let's face it, we can train someone for any skill that's out there. There is a course for it. There is of course, a certification for him. There is a continuing ed for which you can't really change who someone is. If they're not a timely person, then they're not a timely person. If they're an introvert, they're an introvert. I mean, if you want an extrovert people person and you hire an introvert with a great resume, you're gonna get an introvert with a great resume. But if you hire someone hungry, if you hire someone that just has the, the, the, the characteristics, the character that you're looking for, who believes in what you're doing, who shares your values, of integrity, of timeliness, of commitment of just doing what's right. Give me that person every day of the week, and I will train them on the other stuff. But Karen, here's where some of the challenges occur. What if you don't actually have a training process?   29:33 What if you don't really have a hiring and onboarding process it's kind of some I don't know just something you kind of do. Their lair lies the problem. The real challenge is you don't have that. And if you don't have that you do the hope and pray method. I hope I the worst that kill me is Jamie. I think I hired a rockstar and I go oh boy. Here we go. Because hiring a rockstar is the hope and pray method. In your mind, they're a rockstar because you are hoping that they are because you don't have time to deal with this. Because you need to move on to something else because you are overwhelmed. Give me someone who's passionate about playing the guitar, and I will turn them into a rock star, but a rock star at my place. I don't need a rockstar at someone else's place. Because rarely, if ever, does that convey in someone being that a player at my place. So that's the biggest thing. really sit down, write down what are the characteristics that you want for this position? Are they outgoing? Hi, Quickstart, you know, talk about their emotional intelligence, are they detailed oriented, they follow through communication skills, you know, relational skills, like really get clear again, on the type of person that you want. And if they're not that person, no matter what their resume says, then maybe they might fit another position. But you want to be really careful about bringing them in, because it's an expensive endeavor that you're making. You don't want to make the wrong investment.   31:14 Yeah, absolutely. And I think I'm just gonna repeat that one more time. Hire for traits train for skill, just so people have that embedded into their freight train for skill. Yeah, yeah. Excellent. Okay, what's the last one? Last   31:31 one, expand your reach? Look, marketing is about awareness. The more you create awareness out in the world, the more opportunities and people come to you, we are in the marketing, of looking for candidates. So we have to use that same mentality, we're trying to find good people, we need to ramp up our efforts. So we need more effort. And we need to expand our reach, we need to explore every channel and open every door that's out there and apply a massive amount of action for a long period of time, this doesn't end we are all Talent scouts, it never ends. As long as you're trying to grow, you're always looking for talent. And if there's a if you find someone, you'll figure out a way to bring them in, because you'll know what they're worth to you. So what are some things you can do LinkedIn, had a friend of mine do LinkedIn strategy, which is basically connect with with people connect with I mean, LinkedIn is a 24 hour, seven day a week networking site, they just connected with people just generally connected with people. And then, you know, said, Hey, by the way, you know, I'm looking for this particular type of person. Do you know of anybody? Would you mind sharing the this as sharing his job description? With your network? I'd really appreciate it. They're like, sure. Now, all of a sudden, he had 567 people 10 people sharing this. Within a week, he had someone in Texas, saying, actually, you know what, I'm just finishing up my rotation, which was kind of weird, because it was at the same place that he actually did a rotation at, you know, some massive sports place in Texas. And the person's he's flying them up for an interview here. I mean, that costs nothing. It costs nothing. So LinkedIn, your staff, if you have a decent staff, they like working there, well guess what their staff there, your staff has a network of people, especially your therapists, give them a referral bonus. Ask them to reach out to their people, you know, great way to network. And we've hired lots of people through people that already worked for us. Your past patients, your contact lists, you know, again, sounds simple. Put it out there, hey, we're growing we're looking for and be specific. We're looking for someone to join our team, someone that has these qualities. If you have to every state has a list you can purchase. Right? I did this several times I purchased a list. It wasn't very expensive. They give you addresses, they don't give you email addresses. It's funny, I can actually go to your home right now, Karen, because you're on that list. I can go to your home in New York. But God forbid I can email you. And you can just you can just say unsubscribe or or just delete me, but I can go to your house. I never really understood that one. But that's the way it is. You can purchase a list, you can send them a letter, hey, put your best foot forward send them a great letter about the position. Are they interested? Do they know someone and guess what? Nobody really gets any good mail anymore. They're going to open up your letter. So that's a little more expensive, but it's still worth it. And of course your network pass candidates students. A longer term approach would be have a student program it is the best way to do a 12 week interview with them. And then you know, you know, obviously there's there's companies out there, there's recruiters out there, definitely a bit more expensive. But if you know what the value is of them of the person that you're going to bring on board, then it might be an investment that's worth it to you. So the key is, if you are a business that's growing, then you can never stop looking for talent. And once you do that, you will start to bring in people quality people, look, most of us aren't these massive companies that need 1020 therapists, one or two people can make all the difference. So let's shift your mind out of the idea that there's nobody out there, there's no good people out there, there are, you don't need a million people, what you need is to get very clear on who you're looking for. And you need to put a massive amount of effort behind it into networks. And I promise you'll find somebody a lot quicker than you think. But don't just put an ad on, indeed, that you got from another person. And think that's all you need to do. It definitely takes a lot more effort these days.   36:11 Yeah. All right. So I'm gonna recap. So yes, understanding what would their worth is. So that's that three times, rule. Be on purpose, make sure you have a purpose, be clear on your vision, values and mission. Hire for traits not trained for skill, and finally, expand your reach. So in all great ways, for owners of any business, of course, here, we're sort of talking about physical therapy. But I think great advice for any business owner in this atmosphere that we are currently in, in an economic downturn in a time where it seems like man, I cannot find good talent, right? So it's looking inward at yourself as to what you're putting out into the world and then putting yourself out there to find those right people?   37:08 Absolutely. I got a fifth bonus one if you want. Yeah, let's do it. Bonus one here, slow it down. Kind of contrary, to put massive effort, but hear me on this. So the biggest challenge we have right now, as people, especially as business owners, the biggest challenge we have is a lack of focus. If we could just focus on what we wanted to get done, we'd get it done, because we're doers, and we can get things done. But we can't because of all of the distractions that's going on. Well guess what, most people hire out of reaction of something else happening. Either someone quit, or Oh, my God, we have an influx of people. So you're reacting to that. And when you react to something like that, this becomes emotional. And when it becomes emotional, we basically just want to solve the problem and move on because we're overwhelmed. When you slow it down, you slow it down in the form of a process. It's a hiring process. Right? One of the one of the most important things that I learned that I did is have actually a clear step by step process and not miss any of them. Because when I did this before, quick little story, I didn't have a process for a long time. You know, I had an ad and I put it out there, whatever, and I hired people. But when I was interviewing people, I wasn't interviewing them. I was basically trying to sell them to come in, I would literally ask them a question and give them the answers to it. Hey, Karen, you know, our values is integrity and honesty. And, and you know, we like to have fun. Is that is that? Do you believe in that too? I mean, that's an IQ test. All you have to do is say, Yeah, I do. I don't I thought you did. Hey, this is a great place. I'd love to have you would you want to come on board? I'll give you whatever you want. Like, just, I don't have time for this crap. I got other things to do. Let me bring in probably one of the most important people that I'm ever going to hire. This was for a clinical director job that I did a half hour interview and that was it. That was the entire interview process, half hour hire the person. Unfortunately, the person ends up getting arrested six months later. Why? Because let's see person improperly touched a woman during a screening process. Well guess what my board found out in Maryland. And I was called in an investigation and asked 156 questions and learned a lot about HR learned a lot about having processes, learn a lot about having policies and procedures. And then I started doing much more of a background check than I ever did. Oh, I did his check to see if he had a license in Maryland. Oh, guess what? In another state. He was on probation for doing something very similar. But he didn't report it to me which was on him. He was supposed to but I didn't even check right out of the have, you know, I just assumed that his references were good? So it sounds like well, Jamie, you're a moron. Well, maybe so. But what I ended up creating was a very clear step by step process that slowed me down to make sure I did a resume review, and did a checklist on it. I made sure I did a phone interview, knowing what questions to ask, then I did an in person interview, then I did a work interview on a work shadowing, then we did background checks. And then we did, I slowed down everything to a process. Now you can go through the process pretty quickly. But you're still checking the boxes, because it was a protection for the company. You see this person getting arrested and doing this stuff. That's on me that's on the owner. And then I come to find out that he was a little creepy to the rest of the staff, who of course, never told me anything, because I was very high on this person. So having a process and slowing things down is critical. Because once you do that, you then can continue to do that for every person you're hiring. And eventually, you can delegate that. So that's my fifth thing is, is slowing it down and creating a process in this. Yeah,   41:20 great advice. That's a crazy story. Holy cow. Oh, yeah. So it definitely behooves you to do a good background check, and really make sure this is the right person for your practice. Wow. All right. So as we wrap things up, what do you want people to leave with?   41:37 Well, I mean, look, this, this is not easy, right now in our world. And, you know, I gave you I gave you, you know, five actual things that you can do right now. And, you know, it's, it's hard. And you know, one of the things that I've that I've created during my turmoil as a business owner for 15 years is I created my own process. And I turned that process, actually into a program into a course called the right fit hire course. And I've used it in my own business ended up hiring really great people, you know, quadrupling my business and ended up selling it. And now I've used it with hundreds of other people. And what I'd like to do is I like to offer that to your audience. The courses is normally for 497. But I'd like to offer your audience take $200 off, you know, just just, you know, you'll, you'll you'll put the link up there. But you know, it's, this is going to save you a ton of time, ton of energy. It's already split up into how to, you know, recruit great people attract great people qualify them, what the interview questions are, how to do the checklist, it even adds job description, sample, job description, sample ads, sample offer letters, it has all the done for you templates, I did all of that stuff. It even has an onboarding process, and even a training process. So it goes through all four of those components, how to bring in people how to qualify them, and onboard and train them. So it's, it's 297, you'll see you'll see all the things that includes on there. But that's, you know, I want to help people during this trying time, and it's just something that I've used, and so many other people have used successfully that I think would be very beneficial   43:26 to your people. That's incredible. So again, if you're listening, head over to podcast dot healthy, wealthy smart.com. In the show notes of this episode, we'll have a link. So one click will take you right to this, this is a great opportunity. So if you are in the hiring mind, I highly suggest for you to check out this course from Jamie, thank you so much. Now, Jamie, where can people find you?   43:49 Oh, they can find me at Jamie at practice freedom. you.com. If you want to email me personally, you can go to the website, which is practice freedom you the letter u.com You can check that out. And yeah, and I'm all over social media, you don't have to look far. And you'll see me all over there. And yeah, if you want to reach out, say hello, feel free to do so.   44:11 Perfect. And again, we'll have all those links in the show notes as well. So last question, what advice would you give to your younger self? Now you got to keep coming up with new pieces of advice.   44:22 This is the hard part. No, I mean, the pieces of advice is you know, and I think about this more and more. It's like, Jamie, be vulnerable. Be open. One of the books I read, you know talked about being a broken, broken, open heart warrior. Be a broken open heart where we all are broken, we're not perfect, but just open your heart allow the good stuff coming in. There's a lot of great people in the world who want to help you. But it's hard to be helped when you think you know it all and you're closed off and you're and you're just resistance and And I've been like that for so long for so many years and my world changed when I just started to be open and vulnerable and saying, You know what, I don't have all the answers. And that's when so many good things started coming in to my life. And I always try to remind myself when I start to get a little bit of too much ego and remind myself a little bit of, you know, be vulnerable. It's a powerful thing.   45:22 Yeah, I love it. That is excellent advice. Jamie, thank you so much for coming back on the podcast. I know this information will help so many people. So thank you so much.   45:33 Thank you, Karen. Appreciate being back. Absolutely. And   45:37 everyone. Thanks so much for tuning in. Have a great rest of your week and stay healthy, wealthy and smart.

132. Getting It Wrong Sometimes

The Anxious Morning

Many members of our community get caught up in doing recovery right. Some get REALLY caught up in that, becoming highly entangled in reading, watching videos, listening to podcasts, and asking questions about the correct way to recover. This can lead to choppy waters in recovery when the drive to do it right starts to overshadow the principles of recovery and the reason you’re doing the work to begin with.Sometimes I will say that we do not recover so we can live. We live so that we can recover. I stand by this statement and will repeat it from time to time.In life, sometimes we get things wrong. We make mistakes. We misread cues and make less than optimal choices. We get lazy or unmotivated sometimes. We get confused. This is all part of being alive. All humans make mistakes and get things - even important things - wrong sometimes. Recovery is no different.In fact, I might argue strongly that an ugly, imperfect recovery can be more valuable in the long run than somehow reading all the books, understanding every word, then executing a flawless recovery plan and racing back to “feeling better”. I mean, everyone wants to feel better and I would love it if you felt better, but the magic in recovery is not in figuring out how to feel better. The magic is in learning how to DO better. We live so that we can recover. This means that we start doing life to the best of our abilities so that life can reveal our competencies and our strengths for us. Part of being competent and strong is learning how to fix mistakes, change direction when needed, and navigate through errors or mis-steps. “Helicopter parents” catch heat for robbing their children of the lessons of resiliency and flexibility. If we try to engineer error-free perfect lives for our children, how will they learn to rise to meet a challenge or pick themselves up when they fall down. The same applies in recovery. Are you “helicopter parenting” your way through your recovery, or are you willing to accept that part of this process is sometimes getting the process wrong?Especially for our friends driven by overachiever, perfectionist, or hyper-responsible self image issues, getting it wrong can feel really uncomfortable sometimes. Reading, then doing without confirming the correctness of said doing seems irresponsible and like throwing caution to the wind or inviting disaster. But I promise, it is not. Doing recovery this way, by working to understand and apply the principles without demanding specific foolproof techniques or instructions is hard. It means that you will make mistakes sometimes, but it is far more productive and in the end far more rewarding.How can you allow yourself to get it wrong sometimes? Try something without asking for verification first. When you want to seek specific instruction or technique, ask yourself what principle of recovery applies to your situation at the moment then try to build your own instructions from there. When you fee like you must confirm that recovery is possible or that someone has solved the problem you’re trying to solve act first even in the face of this uncertainty and state of not knowing. Expect and accept the discomfort this brings and practice moving through that discomfort. I’ll leave you with a common example.“Am I supposed to literally sit with my fear, or should I try to get on with what I was doing and let it tag along?”My answer to this common question is … “sometimes”. This means that you’ll just have to try it both ways and see what happens. You’ll also have to learn when one method applies and when the other applies. You’ll have to work out when that might flip depending on context, then flip back.You might get it “wrong” sometimes, so strap in. But really, as long as you learn something from the experience, there is almost no “wrong” anyway.I’m currently just getting started on “Reclaiming Conversation” by Sherry Turkle. I found this one when it was referenced in Cal Newport’s “Digital Minimalism” so I was encouraged to give it a try. It’s a more academic read, but I have a real interest in the impact of digital media on how we related to each other so I’m enjoying it.Every Tuesday I’ll let you know what I’m currently reading. I read quite a bit on psychology and philosophy, but really you never know what I’ll have in my Kindle or Audible libraries!

6 Top Routines of Highly Successful Entrepreneurs

Goal Setting & Achievement Podcast: Business|Productivity

Every businessperson typically follows some kind of routine. Whether this routine means getting out of bed at the same time every day, taking a hike every weekend, or simply going to the same place for their coffee. Routines are created to give order in a disorganized world. It brings clarity and focus to your daily life. It also provides the absolute satisfaction of having laid-out steps and processes to follow every day. Routines feel like a planned-out day where everything is scheduled to go ahead without a hitch. Successful entrepreneurs make use of routines in their lives. This has helped them organize their activities, improve their productivity, and give them a clear and uncluttered focus of their life and business goals. To align your business goals with your daily activities and tasks, these are 6 routines of highly successful entrepreneurs you can emulate. 1. Morning Routine Do you have a morning routine? Do you wake up early in the morning, or do you sleep late into the morning? Most successful entrepreneurs wake up very early in the morning and have a morning routine. It can be meditating, exercising, or having a leisurely breakfast. A routine can be responding to emails, or reading business memos and industry updates, which I don't recommend you do first thing after waking up. It can also be reviewing and planning their time blocks and scheduling other activities for the day. When you get up early, you have the advantage of being aware of an unencumbered peace and quiet. This can allow you to focus on personal or business activities without interruption. It also allows you to be available and ahead of demands. Having a morning routine also helps you feel confident and focused on the challenges the day may bring. 2. No Limit on Workdays Though it is very important to have rest days, successful entrepreneurs are known to work when they don't have to. Weekends blur into holidays and vacation days blur into workdays for many successful businesspeople. This shows that they are highly focused and committed to the tasks that they are ready to achieve. They have no set limitation on a day and are set to work whenever inspiration strikes. Carry a notepad and a pen to jot down innovative ideas that may strike when you are doing something unrelated to work, or take notes on your phone (whichever works the best for you). The best ideas cannot be controlled and confined to a specific time slot. 3. Challenging Tasks are Handled First Successful entrepreneurs typically handle more challenging tasks first. Unlike most business professionals who procrastinate on the important tasks and handle all the easy tasks first, high achievers understand the benefits of handling challenging tasks first. Most people start the day with smaller tasks such as emails, messages, memos, easy client service tasks, etc. However, the mornings are when the brain is at its peak for most people. When they decide to handle the more challenging tasks, the brain is working at a less optimal rate which easily causes exhaustion and lesser quality results. Handle your challenging tasks when your brain is working at its peak. By doing this, you can formulate better plans, make better decisions, solve complex problems, and generate creative ideas to set your business on its path to even greater success. Brian Tracy wrote a book called Eat That Frog. “Eat that frog!” basically means to start your day with the biggest, most important, and most dreaded task. It's also the task you are most likely to procrastinate on. Brian Tracy is also about disciplining yourself to eat that frog first thing in the morning every single day. 4. Calendar Time Blocking Practice Instead of planning your personal and business activities in different calendars, successful entrepreneurs make use of calendar time blocking practices that comprise planning all their activities in one place. Online planners and calendar schedulers make it easy to practice this routine. Since they can be easily accessed from multiple devices, this type of scheduling is the preferred choice for successful entrepreneurs and allows them to be as productive as possible. Did you know that some of the most productive people in the world swear by time blocking? Ever heard of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Michael Hyatt, or Cal Newport? Yep – all time-blockers. They're squeezing every drop of productivity from their days, and you can do the same. 5. Rest after Tasks are Completed It is one thing to have tasks to complete. It is another when you can take a break after these tasks are completed. Successful entrepreneurs understand the benefits of resting after tasks are completed. They understand that the brain needs to rest and refuel. There is also the satisfaction and motivation of completing tasks efficiently and successfully. If you are challenged and often feel overwhelmed by all the work you have to do, set a small reward at the end of each completed task or every 90 minutes. This can help increase focus knowing that you get a break. The break can be meditation, a short walk around the building, a power nap, or whatever will give your brain a quick rest to rejuvenate. 6. They Value Teamwork Successful entrepreneurs understand the value of teamwork. They understand that different people have different strengths and weaknesses, and the right team can make up for each other's flaws. When you understand that you cannot go at it alone and achieve your goals, you gain important teamwork skills such as active listening, delegating, and compromise. Successful entrepreneurs understand that being successful has little to do with being independent but harmoniously utilizing valuable skills from different people.

6 Top Routines of Highly Successful Entrepreneurs

Every businessperson typically follows some kind of routine. Whether this routine means getting out of bed at the same time every day, taking a hike every weekend, or simply going to the same place for their coffee. Routines are created to give order in a disorganized world. It brings clarity and focus to your daily life. It also provides the absolute satisfaction of having laid-out steps and processes to follow every day. Routines feel like a planned-out day where everything is scheduled to go ahead without a hitch. Successful entrepreneurs make use of routines in their lives. This has helped them organize their activities, improve their productivity, and give them a clear and uncluttered focus of their life and business goals. To align your business goals with your daily activities and tasks, these are 6 routines of highly successful entrepreneurs you can emulate. 1. Morning Routine Do you have a morning routine? Do you wake up early in the morning, or do you sleep late into the morning? Most successful entrepreneurs wake up very early in the morning and have a morning routine. It can be meditating, exercising, or having a leisurely breakfast. A routine can be responding to emails, or reading business memos and industry updates, which I don't recommend you do first thing after waking up. It can also be reviewing and planning their time blocks and scheduling other activities for the day. When you get up early, you have the advantage of being aware of an unencumbered peace and quiet. This can allow you to focus on personal or business activities without interruption. It also allows you to be available and ahead of demands. Having a morning routine also helps you feel confident and focused on the challenges the day may bring. 2. No Limit on Workdays Though it is very important to have rest days, successful entrepreneurs are known to work when they don't have to. Weekends blur into holidays and vacation days blur into workdays for many successful businesspeople. This shows that they are highly focused and committed to the tasks that they are ready to achieve. They have no set limitation on a day and are set to work whenever inspiration strikes. Carry a notepad and a pen to jot down innovative ideas that may strike when you are doing something unrelated to work, or take notes on your phone (whichever works the best for you). The best ideas cannot be controlled and confined to a specific time slot. 3. Challenging Tasks are Handled First Successful entrepreneurs typically handle more challenging tasks first. Unlike most business professionals who procrastinate on the important tasks and handle all the easy tasks first, high achievers understand the benefits of handling challenging tasks first. Most people start the day with smaller tasks such as emails, messages, memos, easy client service tasks, etc. However, the mornings are when the brain is at its peak for most people. When they decide to handle the more challenging tasks, the brain is working at a less optimal rate which easily causes exhaustion and lesser quality results. Handle your challenging tasks when your brain is working at its peak. By doing this, you can formulate better plans, make better decisions, solve complex problems, and generate creative ideas to set your business on its path to even greater success. Brian Tracy wrote a book called Eat That Frog. “Eat that frog!” basically means to start your day with the biggest, most important, and most dreaded task. It's also the task you are most likely to procrastinate on. Brian Tracy is also about disciplining yourself to eat that frog first thing in the morning every single day. 4. Calendar Time Blocking Practice Instead of planning your personal and business activities in different calendars, successful entrepreneurs make use of calendar time blocking practices that comprise planning all their activities in one place. Online planners and calendar schedulers make it easy to practice this routine.

127. Why Does "Regular" Anxiety Become A Nightmare So Often?

The Anxious Morning

Play Episode Listen Later Jun 28, 2022 4:09


Yesterday we talked about recognizing “regular” anxiety in your life. This is anxiety in many forms, triggered by external influences, that all humans experience from time to time. Learning to identify regular anxiety when you feel it can help you in your recovery journey.But for so many members of our community, this is is a difficult task simply because regular anxiety almost automatically spins out of control, goes off the rails, and becomes the disordered anxious response that is the hallmark of issues like panic disorder, OCD, or agoraphobia.What is the difference? What is disordered anxiety? Well for our purposes we will define disordered anxiety as anxiety that originates internally with bodily sensations or thoughts that you have learned to interpret as threats over time. This is important. Disordered anxiety is based on interpreting your own body and mind as sources of danger or threat. Why is this so important?Because when humans experience life stress, we respond physically and mentally to that stress. Sometimes that response is what we might call regular anxiety. Other responses might be anger, despair, disappointment, or fear. In all of those cases, those responses will likely trigger physical responses in our bodies. This is normal and to be expected. Some extra thinking is also bound to happen when under stress, so that is also normal and to be expected.But when we’ve become conditioned to be on alert for threats originating in our bodies and minds, sensations and thoughts - even those that are normal and expected - can quickly trigger an exaggerated threat response. We get “regular” anxious because of life, then we roll into disordered anxiety territory when that regular anxiety itself becomes a threat that we’ve decided we must respond to .When this happens, it’s common to misinterpret things by concluding that your nasty co-worker makes you panic. In reality, your nasty co-worker triggers a normal anxiety or anger response in you, which in turn gets interpreted as a threat worthy of panic. I know it might seem like this doesn’t matter, but it does. When we incorrectly declare that the entire world is direct panic trigger, we more readily engage in avoidance and retreat rituals. We see our ourselves as unable to handle any stimulation, sensation, or emotion, and will declare even normal, healthy human reactions to life as strictly off-limits.This is why understanding this process, and working on recognizing regular anxiety, can be a huge help. We can reframe our situation within this more accurate context, which gives us some room to work in. If you can see your normal responses and understand how they morph into disordered responses, you can work on putting some space between those two things rather than trying to avoid the universe at large because you think it is full of “triggers”.I’m not implying that this knowledge or understanding will wipe away your anxiety disorder, but it always helps to have a grasp on the principles and mechanics of the process rather than simply being reactive and hoping for specific instructions on how to overcome every specific sensation, thought, fear, and situation.I just finished reading “Digital Minimalism” by Cal Newport. I’ve been working for quite a while on being more intentional with my use of social media and electronic devices in general so this book was right up my alley. I found it both theoretically and practically interesting.Every Tuesday I’ll let you know what I’m currently reading. I read quite a bit on psychology and philosophy, but really you never know what I’ll have in my Kindle or Audible libraries! If you’re on Goodreads and into books, you can follow/friend me over there. Here’s a link to my “currently reading” shelf. I’d love to see what you’re reading and what you recommend.

Today we spoke with Mike Brown - English professional rugby player, with 72 caps for England Mike has amassed 340 appearances for Harlequins (and 500 points), 12 for Newcastle and 72 caps for the England national rugby union team. Predominantly a full back, Mike has won three 6 Nations titles with England and two English Premiership titles with Harlequins. He won the 2014 RBS Six Nations player of the championship award...and is renowned for his work ethic, tenacity and ability to attack with ball in hand. Today we unpacked the full back position and why that was the position for Mike (he started as a 10, has the heart of a 6). We discussed leadership, culture and high performing teams, all areas of interest for Mike, which he is studying as a part of the Sports Directorship, at Manchester Metropolitan University. Mike explained the intricacies of bringing club players from different environments and playing styles together for the national team, and the challenges of that for England. Mike dived into his playing philosophy around training, his preparation - and the nuggets as to how we can all catch a high ball better, with mentions to Irish legends like Conor O'Shea and Gavin Duffy. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Cal Newport doesn't like the distractions of technology. In fact, Newport thinks that our focus on technology and how it dominates modern business is holding us back. His book, A World Without Email: Reimagining Work in an Age of Communication Overload, takes a sledgehammer to how technology runs the modern enterprise and, ultimately, our lives. The idea is not to jettison email but to make it smarter. Instead of the back and forth, you get collaborative tools. You don't even need to be a business owner or work in tech to have some of the messaging resonate with you, and stay with you long after you have finished. A World Without Email invites you to scrutinize how useful these tools are in your lives and reflect on the best practices.★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★
