Life can get crazy.

I get it. 

Work, family, kids, school...

Where do you fit it all in?

I get that question a lot.

I now can relate even more with a 2-month-old at home. 

Family, your spouse, kids, work, etc...

We all have a long list of things that keep us busy each day. 

How do we get it all in?


It seems simple, but it's easier said than done. 

Follow One Course Until Successful. 

Right now, this e-mail is the only thing I'm focusing on. I'll be 100% all in until it's done. 

I'll then move on to the next thing that needs my attention. 

I get it, things come up, babies start crying, phones start ringing, etc.

Address those when needed... 

But take advantage of every opportunity you can to put your head down and focus on one thing. 

Control your environment as much as you can. 

Can you put your phone in the other room when you're working?

Can you take REALLY take advantage of the 2 hours today that you don't have the kids?

You see, it's like a bragging right to be busy. 

I don't get it. 

I know a lot of people that are "busy," but at the end of the day what did you actually get done?

It's not about being busy, it's about being productive. 

No distractions. 

For me..that means I block everything. 

I work in 50-minute blocks. 

I build in procrastination. 

I have a meeting for 50 minutes. 

Then I check my phone for 5-10 minutes, check social media, listen to voicemails, etc.  

I write a blog post for 50 minutes. 

Then I check the latest sports news for 5-10 minutes. 

However, for those 50 minutes, I'm ALL IN.


I think a lot of people get caught up in thinking they're busy...

Yet when you look at how they spend their day it involves a lot of multi-tasking, checking social media at the same time, having the TV on in the background, checking e-mails just for the heck of it, etc. 

At the end of the day, nothing really gets done. 

There's a reason why you'll very rarely see me at the gym before noon time....

I still love our morning peeps but between the hours of 7:00 am and 12 noon, I work undistracted. I lock myself in my office, I have a punch list, and I hammer it out like no one's businesses. The TV isn't on, there're no distractions. I would bet I get more things done in those five hours then some people do in a week. 

I challenge you to really analyze your day. 

Are you actually productive, or are you just busy?

It's the same thing with fitness...

Did you know when you focus on just one goal of habit the success rate is 90%?

Yet when you focus on two goals the success rate drops to 30%.


1% Better.
