DON’T DO ME A FAVOUR - Episode 39

 
Today I’m going into another in my TELL IT LIKE IT IS series of shows which have proven to be very successful in the past – These are episodes where I talk about a problem which it’s likely we may all have come up against but which out of politeness or awkwardness or some other reason we just don’t discuss. This is one which has bit me in the ass a good few times over the years. Before I get into it though, I am increasingly conscious that I may come across as a moaning old git, but I do draw upon my own experiences for these shows and offer them up in good spirit not in the name of negativity but as signposts of danger, and with the hope that through my failures you will prosper.

HOW DO YOU EAT AN ELEPHANT? - Episode 38

In today’s episode, I’m going to be talking once again about HABITS. I’ve gone into them before in episode 13 - HABIT FORMING FOR A BETTER LIFE and I will be coming back to them again. The more you do something, the stronger and more efficient the connection becomes. Habit-forming, you see, is yet another essential part of self-improvement.

Quotes:

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle

“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” - Aristotle

“Habits are formed by the repetition of particular acts. They are strengthened by an increase in the number of repeated acts. Habits are also weakened or broken, and contrary habits are formed by the repetition of contrary acts.” - Mortimer J. Adler

“Never remember to floss? Work it into your existing habits by flossing right before brushing your teeth. Assuming you're remembering to do that one that is...” - Esquire magazine

“The goal here is to chip away at a simple but time-consuming project in five to fifteen-minute daily increments.” - Steven Scott

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” - Jim Rohn

SWIM FOR YOUR LIFE - Episode 37

Today I’m releasing release two shorter more on point episodes. This episode SWIM FOR YOUR LIFE is the first show where I’ve talked about fitness… it’s a very limited immersion (pun very much intended) in a topic that I feel may make a big difference to your life if you can go with it. There’s plenty of other stuff in here too if you are a non-swimmer so stay tuned! Now not only is STAYING ACTIVE one of the ESSENTIAL 5 A DAY FOR GOOD MENTAL HEALTH elements, but it’s also vital if you are to be as productive as you possibly can be.

DEVELOPING A SENSE OF URGENCY - Episode 35

I talked about A SENSE OF URGENCY last season in my episode entitled DRIVE, but for me, it’s really one of the cornerstones of productivity itself. John Kotter’s quote there says it very well. This is not about panic, anxiety or fear (although you may have to fight them off a wee bit along the way) it’s about killing complacency and replacing it with something else. An "inner energy" that drives your forward, to complete on your plans, to hit deadlines and to achieve great things.
 

For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/

 

Quotes:

“A higher rate of urgency does not imply ever-present panic, anxiety, or fear. It means a state in which COMPLACENCY is virtually absent.” - Professor of Leadership at the Harvard Business School, John P. Kotter

“If your bias for action is to put it off till tomorrow then you need to start reprogramming yourself and get rid of that delaying crutch. Change up your tempo to something a bit more lively, and as I’ve warned many times before - don’t wait for the planets to get into just the right alignment before you move – if you do that, THE RIGHT TIME will slip through your fingertips. BUILD MOMENTUM – remember it’s much easier to keep a body in motion than it is to initiate that motion.” - BRYAN TRACY

“Everyone should have a sense of urgency – it is getting a lot done in a short period of time in a calm, confident manner.”  - Bob Proctor
