Our guest on the podcast this week is Simon Severino, CEO of Strategy Sprints and Host of the Strategy Sprints podcast. He has interviewed powerhouse entrepreneurs like Rita McGrath, David Allen, Nir Eyal, Perry Marshall, Verne Harnish, Brian Kurtz, and hundreds more on business, productivity, and growth. He helps business owners in SaaS and Services run their companies more effectively which results in sales that soar. He created the Strategy Sprints™ Method that doubles revenue in 90 days by getting owners out of the weeds. Simon leads a global team of Certified Strategy Sprints™ Coaches that help clients gain market share and work in weekly sprints which results in fast execution. His team is trusted by Google, Consilience Ventures, Roche, Amgen, AbbVie, and hundreds of frontier teams. He is a TEDx speaker and has appeared on over 500 podcasts. He writes for Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine about scaling digital businesses. Today Simon talks about his passion for ‘aliveness' in business, how important our energy is to how we show up to our work, and how creating sacred space is the key to winning teams. As he says, twenty years ago he fell in love with business, how we can start and enter the market, and how to win in business, whatever your interpretation of that is. Although he is undoubtedly a systems guy, he talks freely about energy and the frequency of potential and vibration - how a business needs to inspire people to feel more alive and how his simple methods get incredible results for his clients. Listen in as Simon shares some important yet simple perspectives on how you as a changemaker can fulfill your potential in business while also enjoying the journey and having a life. We discuss the ‘sacred' and how the best performing teams create sacred space, how words have energy, and the potential to shift people's mindsets when you use the correct ways to connect to people's emotions. And I loved it when Simon took a stand against using words like “leads' as he says they are not leads they are interested people so don't dehumanize them in your copy or approach. If you would like some tangible insights about how you can get better at business in ways that will make you feel alive, then I think you will gain some great insights from Simon that will inspire you to perhaps think a little differently about your current approach. I suspect you'll enjoy Simon's unique perspective on the energetic exchange of business and the truth and freedom that is just waiting for you to claim it. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. Key Takeaways The simple approach to doubling your revenue in just 90 days with strategy sprints How's not about the money, it's about the aliveness What simple steps you can take to grow your business in meaningful ways (and it's not the usual hot air we often hear!) How business is an energetic exchange of understanding, love, and deeply caring for others How to find your ‘sacred' - your way of doing business, your way of selling and marketing so it feels good. Memorable Quote “Most people have a very complicated approach to business and we keep it simple and direct. It's based on 2 very simple things, truth, and freedom. There are just 3 numbers to track, 3 goals, and maximum freedom in how people get there. It's not that hard.” —Simon Severino Episode Resources: http://strategysprints.com/ (Strategy Sprints Website) https://www.linkedin.com/in/simonseverino/ (Simon's Linkedin) http://sacredchangemakers.com/ (SacredChangemakers.com) http://coachesbusinessschool.com/ (CoachesBusinessSchool.com) https://www.instagram.com/jayne_m_warrilow/?hl=en (Jayne Warrilow on Instagram) Thank you to our sponsor: A HUGE thank you to the members of Coaches Business School who are our podcast sponsors, and also our extended community who are helping us to make a global impact aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, all visible on our website.

My daughter had just pulled the caramel corn out of the oven, and the sticky-sweet smell was almost irresistible. Despite knowing it wasn't going to help my diet, I was gnawing for a taste. But instead of kindly asking for a small bite, as I should have, I barked, “Damn this caramel corn!” Cursing my daughter's hard work earned me a scowl and, if I'm honest with myself, didn't set a good example for how a grown-up should handle himself. It wasn't my daughter's responsibility to manage what I put in my mouth, and it certainly wasn't the caramel corn's. Still, I blamed the caramel corn for tempting me, instead of taking responsibility for my urges.

Take a break! Caught up in the web of social media? Maybe it's time to snap back to reality to improve your mental health, just like Tom Holland. But are the clever designs of big tech the problem or do we have ourselves to blame? And when are online social habits an addiction versus just a terrible distraction? Is this the 'Big Tobacco' of our time... Nexus speaks to Anna Lembke, Professor of Psychiatry and Social Behaviour at Stanford University who featured in the 2020 Netflix documentary ‘The Social Dilemma' who says social media addiction is a reality for many people but abstaining completely is unrealistic for our times. Brian Primack is the Dean of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University who says we need to be very selective in the content we consume in order for it to be beneficial, and Nir Eyal, a behavioural design consultant believes we cannot wait for big tech to change, we need to be in control of our own behaviour.

This week our guest is lecturer, investor, and author, Nir Eyal, whose previous two books include Hooked: How To Build Habit Forming Products and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. Nir has a lot of experience teaching and discussing these subjects, so we were able to explore many different aspects of attention in a very short time. This include the triggers that drive us to get hooked to products, the morality of “hooking” people's attention, the distinction between addiction and distraction, why Nir thinks social media hijacking attention is a dangerous myth, how managing our attention is about managing our pain, and many ways in which we can bolster our defenses against distraction and control our attention.

You don't have to agree on everything, but you do have to align values in a relationship. Divorce sucks. My friend is going through one right now. The worst part is that he saw it coming. And he's not the first of my friends to tell me they ignored the warning signs of an eventual breakup. Although there isn't a surefire way to predict which relationships will last, there are some guidelines anyone entering or in a committed relationship should be aware of. They involve having honest discussions to make sure you're seeing eye to eye with your partner about hot-button issues.

Introducing Bill Ringle I'd like to welcome Bill Ringle, a former Apple exec who founded GrowBusinessNow.com. Bill works with leaders of privately held high-tech companies to work more effectively and serve a larger client base, without the drama, frustration, misunderstandings, chaos, and stress that is often the norm. He has dedicated his professional career to helping overwhelmed managers become admired leaders who can help grow and scale companies.  Bill is the author of the upcoming book titled, Grow Business Now, and he hosts My Quest for the Best, the podcast for ambitious small business leaders, with more than 400 episodes with top published thought leaders like Dan Pink, Nir Eyal, Doug Conant, Whitney Johnson, John Lee Dumas, and Dorie Clark sharing their stories, strategies, and tools with listeners. Bill travels from Philadelphia and can be found playing tennis, playing Wordle, or hiking with his border collie when not working. What problem do you solve? How to make your delegation better whatever your industry or where you are. Show Notes: People typically like to dump or pass off their least favorite jobs.  Delegation has three aspects that make it effective You are getting more done than you could on your own without spending more time. You are involving others. You are building bench strength throughout the organization. When you hit those 3 marks you are doing the job of someone who can be trusted in the organization. A sign that delegation is not going well is that the manager says they don't have time to delegate. It's a sign that they need to teach others. Also, consider where you are adding the most value and where it is not adding value that you do it. If it's not adding value that you do it, it is a job that you need to delegate. When you don't share responsibility, you lose access to very talented people. Envision the end result and communicate clearly and precisely what you want to the right people. Give credit so that you get the best results the next time you delegate as well. You have to be able to overcome your “control monster”. Have a review process to make sure the result that you envisioned is accomplished. This allows for feedback without criticism. Your ability to delegate is what managers look at to promote you. Steps to become a better delegator: Plan. Hire people that are different than you with different skills. Know who on your team has which skills. Make lists of things you do best. Know the things you should never be doing. Use a virtual assistant if needed Communicate the status of the work you are doing. Bill Ringle's Recharge Round What habit do you think has led to success in your life? To be prepared.  If you had one do-over, what would it be? He tries to embrace mistakes as learning opportunities. However, if he were to do things over he would do things sooner. Reach out for help sooner, ask questions sooner. He makes a policy to have his team reach out for help after trying to solve things on their own for 15 minutes.

Welcome to the 14th Episode of my Podcast – today we'll be talking about a recent personal experience and the insight I gained via it into managing expectations from yourself. This week, we'll discuss Thought errors – something we've discussed before and how they lead to feelings which might not allow us to do the things we want to do. We'll question the entire process of “procrastination” and why we don't do things we actually want to do. What you'll learn from this Episode? 1. What happens to your Emotional Landscape when you are faced with fear, anxiety, stress or specifically changes. 2. How our Emotional Landscape affects our Business and work journey. 3. What happens to the Brain when we are moving through various transitions. 4. The most important learning here – THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT WE WANT TO DO AND WHAT WE DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING IS THE FEELING OF DISCOMFORT. 5. Thought Errors and how they lead us on this journey of feelings which stop us from dealing with changes in the status quo. 6. You don't have to go through a healing process to change your life – sometimes a shift can just happen – an instant switch in your Nervous System. 7. TIME MANAGEMENT IS PAIN MANAGEMENT – How there are only 2 things behind some task – we want to feel a certain way or we want to stop feeling a certain way; so the only work we need to do for Time Management is manage the Pain we get from this transition. 8. You have to be willing to feel the pain so that you can process the feeling and shift into a place wherein you can do the tasks you want to do. 9. How to change your relationship with time – Time doesn't exist outside our body; it exists inside our bodies – we can transform our physical reality by becoming aware of our thoughts, enquiring about them and consequently changing them. 10. How in ATEPS – massive results and contributions are being created by people willing to feel the pain as in this Program, we build capacity inside our Body and Nervous System to do things consistently and get the results you want from your Work / Business. We also talk about the Book – “Indistractable” by Nir Eyal, the author of “Hooked – How to build Habit forming Products” and how the Chapter “Time Management is Pain Management” influenced my thoughts this week. And we discuss how Lauren Cash's Podcast inspired me to make Result Based Lists for the work I want to do instead of “To-Do” Lists which are Task Based. In ATEPS, you will learn much more about this and we have an entire Module on Nervous System Support for all of you. It's not just a Series of Audios and Videos but also a part of our Live Coaching Calls.

Are you afraid of being alone? Well, you're not alone in that. In a 2014 survey of 2,000 adults, one in three said they fear being alone: 40% of women and 35% of men. The world is riddled with distractions that prevent us from having to feel alone even when we aren't in the physical presence of another person. While no study pinpoints social media as a cause of depression and feelings of isolation—in fact, social media can be a tool for combatting loneliness—it, along with texting, television, and video gaming, can distract us from embracing solitude.
