In this episode, hosts Kevin Palmieri and Alan Lazaros talk about the art of task management and the liberating concept that not everything is as important as it seems. They shine a light on the societal conditioning that often pressures women into believing that every little thing is essential, leading to unnecessary stress and burnout.They talk about eliminating tasks that contribute little to your overall vision. It's about automating, delegating, and eliminating tasks that don't align with your purpose. This approach affords you more time to focus on what truly matters.Links mentioned:Next Level Nation - https://www.facebook.com/groups/459320958216700Next Level Hope Foundation- https://www.gofundme.com/f/next-level-hope-foundation-2023-holiday-event ______________________Website
As kids we had real needs. And when those needs (appreciation, validation, listening, approval, for example) were not met by our caregivers, they set up a series of suppressed unmet needs.Because we were kids and didn't know how to process through these unmet needs to heal the wounds, we repressed them. So now, we're adults. With real needs unmet, from childhood. So what do we do? We begin to chase false needs in the hope of trying to feel safer and happier, unaware that we are doing this to satisfy our real needs.[In my mentoring work with billionaires, celebrity athletes and startup titans I call this “The Top Performers Disease” and it's a sad affliction because nothing is ever enough for the person struggling with it because, at the root, the person doesn't feel enough]. That's not because you're not successful enough in the world. It's because you don't feel successful inside. And nothing on the outside will fill that hole within.

I've been talking a lot about planning lately - an obscene amount honestly, but that's ok. Ironically, today is Workbox Planning Day! We're starting off the month getting those purple projects completed and ready for more GREEN in 2024! In today's episode I talk about how this week I'd love for you to come up with a list of planned neglect. It's been a long time since I've talked about planned neglect. I remember the first time I ever heard about this concept at a Creative Memories conference. I want you to think about all of the things that you've done for the past 11 months of this year. Out of all those things, what are the things that you are NOT going to do in order to create more margin, more bandwidth, more breathing room for you to actually enjoy the holidays and enjoy the end of this year? Really, honestly think about it - what are the things that you are going to purposefully put off from right now until the end of January? Just like right now with getting my PhD, I know I'm neglecting a lot of things in my life for the next 2 years (I'm almost done with year 1!) This doesn't mean I'll never do those things again, just not right now. Figure out what you can do, when you can do it, and how long it is going to take. What are all the roles and responsibilities that you have inside of your life and what are things you can do to make those easier?

In this episode of the Well-Oiled Operations™ podcast, Stacy shares a simple hack called "projects versus routines" that can help business owners avoid overwhelming their team and increase productivity. She explains that as a visionary, business owners often delegate tasks to their team without considering the impact on their workload. By distinguishing between routines (repetitive tasks) and projects (one-time tasks), business owners can better prioritize and allocate their team's time. Stacey emphasizes the importance of understanding the hours spent on routines and ensuring they are non-negotiable. She also recommends conducting regular time audits to identify efficiencies and adjust workload accordingly. Implementing this hack can lead to better delegation, improved results, and reduced overwhelm for both business owners and their team. Also in this episode: Distinguish between routines (repetitive tasks) and projects (one-time tasks) to prioritize and allocate the team's time effectively.

Hey Winner, Today is all about the Sabbath rest. You may go, well that's an old testament regulation. We're in new testament times, I'm not into being legalistic... What if I told you that the Sabbath day is a gift from God? It's not really a regulation, more of a promise. Now, it is in the 10 commandments... and those are actually still good to follow. But it really is a promise. A promise of rest for our physical bodies and our souls. God rested on the seventh day of creation to model for us what the Sabbath looks like. Let's talk about it.

As human beings, it's ever so easy to sit on the summit of high-judgement and self-righteousness on seeing another human being doing something we consider wrong. Yet, as we spend more time in meditation, reflection and awareness building, we often and generally realize we do the same thing. Fascinating, yes? Maybe it looks slightly different than the thing that we do yet the main idea here is that we too are regularly guilty of the very acts we get so troubled by. When someone else does it. By practicing the practice of seeing someone displaying one of the flaws that make us human and praying for the power to forgive them because they are “just like me”, we relax. We breathe. We ground. And then we reach the serenity that makes our days so much richer.If you'd like to learn the tools, habits and daily routines of warriors, billionaires, sages and superstars then read (or listen to) The Everyday Hero Manifesto today.

In this episode "from the vault", originally released in November 2021, I had the pleasure of chatting with Juliet Funt, author of "A Minute to Think: Reclaim Creativity, Conquer Busyness, and Do Your Best Work". Together, we delved into how the often-overlooked concept of whitespace is crucial for creativity, productivity, and a balanced life. Juliet's insights are particularly timely in our fast-paced, performative world where busyness often masquerades as effectiveness. Our discussion ranged from tackling the misconceptions of work-life balance to the innovative concept of 'time sketching' versus traditional time management. Juliet's approach to productivity isn't just about doing more; it's about creating space for what truly matters. This conversation is a must-listen for anyone looking to revitalize their approach to work and life. Key Discussion Points The detrimental effects of "performative busyness" on well-being and productivity. Rethinking the concept of work-life balance and insatiability in the workplace. Creative strategies to boost productivity, exemplified by unconventional sales methods. The vital role of whitespace in fostering creativity and effective work habits. Juliet's unique approach to time management: "time sketching" for flexibility. Addressing the 'thieves of time' like social media, email, and meetings. The importance of integrating whitespace into daily life for focus and creativity. This episode with Juliet Funt was an enlightening journey through the realms of productivity and personal growth. Her perspective on embracing whitespace and thoughtful time management is a game-changer for anyone feeling overwhelmed by the hustle culture. Remember, it's not just about doing more; it's about creating space to do what's truly important.

Productivity in business requires your time. If you can devise ways to free up more of your time capital, you can live a more balanced life. Which is precisely the reason why a significant 64% of businesses believe that artificial intelligence will help increase their overall productivity, as revealed in a Forbes Advisor survey. This demonstrates the growing confidence in AI's potential to transform business operations. Furthermore, A quarter of companies are adopting AI because of labor shortages. As labor shortages become a pressing concern, 25% of companies are turning to Aasadoption to address this issue, according to an IBM report. AI helps businesses optimize operations and compensate for the lack of human resources. Laura Bowers is the CEO of The PMO Boss. “After 20 years of leading projects and teams I've witnessed some of the best and worst practices out there.

I absolutely love talking about making project management simpler for already overburdened entrepreneurs, and the impact of great leadership at all levels.“ “Much like the rest of the world, Covid got me thinking about things.

I took this as my opportunity to leap into launching my own AI project management and productivity consulting business, The PMO Boss.

Is productivity just about getting as much done as possible, or is it about getting the right things done in the best way? HOW do you KNOW when you're being productive? Maybe a better question is how do you differentiate from being productive vs. just being busy? I'm excited to have Amber De La Garza on the show to help us answer these questions! Amber has more than a decade of experience helping small business owners maximize profits, reduce stress, and make time for what matters most by elevating their productivity! Amber is a sought-after coach, trainer, speaker, writer, host of the Productivity Straight Talk Podcast and creator of Leverage Lab® and she's here to help us choose productivity over everything else. Others will always have advice about what you should and shouldn't be doing, what's the most valuable use of your time, and where you should be spending it… But there's a difference between an expense and an investment. Like money, you can't get time back once you've spent it. But also like money, you CAN invest your time into things with the greatest ROI, with the hope that it will appreciate and generate something even greater. Being busy (but not productive) is an expensive way to live. Being PRODUCTIVE is an investment in YOU, your future, and what matters most. YOU ARE THE ASSET.

SEO, YouTuber, and AI expert Julian Goldie joins the podcast to give us a masterclass in AI jam-packed with actionable tips and free tools to help boost our productivity. He begins by discussing two ways to scale content using AI: one-click article generators and AI-assisted editing by virtual assistants. Julian recommends using ChatGPT and its plugins, such as Web Pilot, to generate optimized content outlines for articles. He explains that training ChatGPT involves inserting custom instructions to make it act in a certain way, such as using personas or following specific writing styles. API access to ChatGPT is another useful tool for scaling content production, as it allows for the generation of hundreds of articles per day. Julian also explores other applications of AI in content creation, including density analysis, expert citations, and topical maps to build topical authority. He highlights the power of using ChatGPT for various tasks, such as creating topical maps and generating keyword ideas. Furthermore, Julian emphasizes the importance of using AI tools like WebPilot and Dali3 to enhance content by adding videos, images, tables, and other forms of media. He shares his personal experience of leveraging AI to streamline his marketing efforts, replacing a five-person team with himself and a few virtual assistants empowered with ChatGPT. To implement AI effectively, Julian suggests taking a systematic approach, starting with a time audit to identify tasks that can be automated for maximum efficiency. He encourages content creators to focus on one high-leverage task at a time and gradually incorporate AI into their workflow. Julian concludes by recommending his YouTube channel for actionable insights and real-world examples of using AI in content creation and marketing. In summary, Julian Goldie provides valuable insights into the impact of AI on content creation and SEO. He discusses various AI tools and techniques, such as ChatGPT and its plugins, API access, and AI-assisted editing. Julian emphasizes the importance of using AI to enhance content with media elements and shares his personal experience of streamlining marketing efforts with AI.

I'm excited to announce that the Complete Sunday Basket® will now be offered at a lower price of $179!! Do you budget for organization? No, most people do not budget for organization. And when you think about spending money on organization, it usually means a professional is coming to your home to complete the organizing or you will be purchasing cute bins to make everything cute. But this, the Sunday Basket®, is a system for organization. We have not traditionally budgeted or thought about purchasing organization in this way. The Sunday Basket® is a system for your home that you are purchasing that most homes do not have. Placing value on learning the skill of organization is a new phenomenon. Same Great Basket with the Same Great Value You as the person considering the purchase has to decide if this is of value or not, right? But it's hard to determine that until you have used it and experienced all the benefits. But once you have, you realize I should charge a lot more because it's chalked full of value and transformation. For only $179, you will still get everything you got before…the community, the online dashboard, the workbook, slash pockets, and of course the basket in the color you choose. But what you don't know yet is the confidence you will get from being organized, the relief you will have knowing all things are taken care of or planned for, less negative self talk, and the time you will have for other things than just panicking about being organized. What Lisa? Why? In the beginning, I was able to offer lower pricing because I was personally mailing each box out from my home. Now I have the warehouse, labor, and supplies… you know - all the things! So as Organize 365® grew and I was able to offer more, I also needed to increase the price to cover those costs. And if you are feeling like you have no time, no money, like you are under water and overwhelmed…then I want to be able to help. This price point should be able to make this more accessible to more people out there who need more time so they can explore and do what they are uniquely created to do. Get Your Sunday Basket® now for only $179! After you use your Sunday Basket® for 12 weeks, I promise you will have recouped the price of your Sunday Basket®!
