28: time-brain expansion hack
In this week’s podcast you learn how to intentionally constrain your available time to produce the highest quality work in a fraction of the time. It’s all about understanding what I call the “time-brain expansion.” It looks like this: if we give ourselves 6mo to do a project, we’ll take every bit of 6mo to get it done. If we give ourselves 3mo to do the same project, they’ll take every bit of 3mo. Our brain expands into whatever time we give it. The solution is SIMPLE. Here’s what you get in this week’s podcast: ✅My writing hacks that helped me HALVE the time of writing books, even when I was covering more complex material. Use this recipe for ANY project ✅The secret sauce behind THIS podcast production ✅The secret sauce behind THIS podcast production ✅Why having a specific deadline is ESSENTIAL ✅What to do when you don’t make the deadline Click the button below for this week’s podcast.   PS. Want 56 MORE DAYS A YEAR??? If so, join us at the How to Breakup & Makeup with Your Phone Workshop. We'll cover the latest tips on how to have more FREEDOM while still enjoying our phones. We're talking more CALM. More PEACE. More TIME. More ENERGY. Bring your friends, especially the ones who reach for their phones the SECOND they have to wait for the elevator to arrive. At the end of the session, for those interested, I'll be introducing an ENTIRELY new way to work together. Be the first to see it, get first dibs, AND possibly get a fun freebie by attending live.

11: Solving Indecision-Exhaustion

11: Solving Indecision-Exhaustion
Indecision is exhausting. It presents as 1) a very busy mind that’s never still, 2) lots of confusion, 3) poor sleep, 4) overeating, overNetflixing, over-scrolling, and 5) emotional reactivity. Most physicians solve for indecision by working harder, researching more, consuming more books, talking it through to all the people, sleeping on it, taking a class, “giving it more time,” and overthinking again. The answer to indecision is NOT more work, information, or time. The answer is to DECIDE. In last week’s episode we discussed a 5-step process to get to ZERO decision drama. This week we talk what to do if you literally can’t make a decision right now: DECIDE to box up the indecision. This IS a decision. Here’s exactly what I do: I put my indecision and all the associated thoughts and feelings into a metaphorical Tiffany’s Box on my desk.  I know it’s there, I know I’ll get to it, and I’ll give myself space to figure it all out. I only allow myself to entertain the issue at my weekly private coaching session with my coach. This way, I have a mind expert to help me investigate my thoughts and NOT get lost on the spin and despair. When I open the box, I have a decision waiting for me. I didn’t have to think 24/7 on it. I don’t lose any sleep. I just had to lovingly put it in a box. Constrain the indecision. Let my brain rest. You get all this in this week’s podcast where you get all this: ✅Two ways to know when you’re stuck in indecision ✅Three myths BUSTED ✅How to constrain indecision ✅What to do while your indecision is contained ✅How to let the decision find you Click the button for this week’s podcast.   PS. The best way to constrain indecision, hold space for possibility, and make impossible things happen is in community. We do this work everyday in my lifetime group coaching program.

10: Zero Decision Drama

10: Zero Decision Drama
In this week’s podcast, you’ll know how to make good decisions FAST. Decisions, themselves, are easy. We look at all the options. We pick one. That’s it. It’s the DRAMA surrounding the decision that’s hard. The faster you get out of decision-drama, the faster you’ll feel better. When we have decision-drama, we spin in confusion, suffer with painful stories, feel trapped with no choice, and start shutting down. Instead of focus at work…we’re distracted, clinic takes longer, and we get home later…exhausted from all the overthinking. Instead of presence at home… our brains are constantly thought looping on all the issues. We’re quick to yell about the dirty dishes in the living room and then feel terrible about that too. We go through dinner-bath-bedtime routine but don’t actually hear what the kids are saying. Instead of enjoying our dream vacation in the Bahamas…we’re worrying about a disaster work schedule that hasn’t even happened yet. We’d never bring our boss on vacation with us intentionally, and yet here she is in our mind 24/7 in the Caribbean. Yuck. The key is to know how to make good decisions FAST. In this week’s podcast episode, you’ll do just that with this brand new tool: The Zero Decision-Drama Drill. Here’s how it works: ✅Simplifies the process. ✅Eliminates the drama and stories. ✅Creates total clarity. ✅Syncs three key perspectives. PLUS you’ll get a reliable tool to confirm your decision. This is how you make good decisions FAST. More focus at work. Get home sooner. More presence at home. Actually hear the kids tell you about their day. More connection and FUN on vacation, while the boss stays in her own dang zip code. Decisions aren’t hard. Drama is hard. Ditch the drama with The Zero Decision-Drama Drill. Let decisions be easy. Click the button to get started Today.   "But what if I can." The first response of any human brain is usually “no” followed by all the reasons why something can’t possibly work and YOU can’t possibly do it. Expect the resistance. It means you have a normal human brain, just like mine. Avoid the urge to believe your brain and quit on yourself. Quitting is basic. You are not. Meet your brain with this new sentence:  "But what if I can." Let this sentence open you up to possibility. Let the possibility show you all the options, help you take your next step, and then go out in the world and CREATE the results that will build your belief IN YOU. Every time your brain says you can’t, keep bringing your brain back to “but what if I can.” Because here’s the stone-cold truth: You totally can.
