Urgent things are killing you!

priorities time Oct 11, 2016

Sometimes, it's confusing to know what things we SHOULD do and what things we shouldn't even mess with when we get into time management, scheduling, and planning. Here's why in a nutshell: The most important things don't beg for your attention.

The important things-

  • They don't text you
  • They don't chime on social media
  • They don't constantly remind you that they need you NOW!

You have to intentionally set aside time- and stick to the commitment- if you're going to see progress. The most important things in life is that, well... they don't usually beg for your attention.



Stephen Covey writes about a concept he calls the four quadrants in his book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. He argues that all opportunities are not equal. Some things are more important than others. Really, we all know he's right. 

To categorize important things from unimportant things, he uses four quadrants. Every activity you do fits in one of the four. No exceptions, no...

The Domino Effect // Dream Big + Small Actions = Extraordinary Outcomes

advance the ladder Oct 04, 2016

In 1983, Lorne Whitehead wrote (in the American Journal of Physics) that a falling domino- all 2 inches of it- can push over a domino that's up to 50% larger. In other words, 2 inches can topple 3 inches. And, by the same logic, 3 can topple 4.5, 4.5 can topple even more...

A 2001 experiment at the San Francisco Exploratorium confirmed this. They used 8 dominos that looked like this:

* Domino 1 = 2 inches tall, standard size

* Domino 2 = 3 inches...

* Domino 8 = 3 feet tall

And, of course, it fell... they all fell. 

Watch and see a similar experiment in the video above we conducted at the Advance 6.0 event in September 2016. You'll see what I mean.


What if you kept the chain going?

In their book The One Thing, Gary Keller and Jay Papasan argue that, using the logic above, you could continue knocking dominos over indefinitely. And, if you went beyond the sequence of 8, you would have the following:

* Domino 1 = standard size, 2 inches tall

How I lost 35 pounds in 2.5 months- and how you can, too!

weight loss Oct 01, 2016

Here's the overview of how I lost 35 pounds in the 2.5 months...

Disclosure: this is the most un-fancy weight-loss plan you've probably ever seen. It's common-sense and simple, though.

(By the way, the humorous version of how I decided to go for 30 pounds is in one of my books...  read page 4 for the story. It's online -The Husband's Field Guide: Navigating Your Wife's Essential Oil Habit.)


The story

Anyway, here's what happened- 

1. I looked in the mirror and didn't like what I saw. I havdn't jumped on a scale in a long time. Every now and then I would do it, but would be disappointed with what it said, so I pretty much avoided it.

Over the holidays I tried some pants that didn't fit (I needed larger ones), and I saw myself in a few full length mirrors. Then I saw myself again while I was in Hawaii on a free trip we took with Cristy's new essential oil business back in March 2014.

2. I defined the goal. I decided that I was going...
