Marissa’s mom, Gail, stops by the show to share what it’s like to not be a goal setter in a family that literally wrote the book on goal setting.
It is the last episode of Focus on This with Verbs and Blake as your intrepid hosts. They, along with a very exciting surprise guest, reflect on what they’ve learned through doing 200+ episodes. They also talk about what’s next for them and we meet the new hosts of Focus on This.
Ken Freire stops by the show for the first time today and the crew talks about the importance of finding your purpose – in ways both big and small – and how that can boost your productivity.
What is your go-to task when you’re supposed to be doing another more important task? Is it organizing your desk? Checking Slack messages? Folding laundry? Whatever your go-to task is, it will lead you to the same place: The Distraction Zone.
When we want to get something accomplished, we tend to think of skills, habits, or tools that we can add to help us reach our goal. However, often times, the real trick to goal achievement isn’t what you can add, but what you can subtract.
You dive into the day with a burst of energy—and you get stuff done! Until lunch, that is. Afternoons are a different story. You’re tired. You can’t focus. Your productivity goes into the tank, so you wind up working in the evening and on the weekend.
It doesn’t have to be that way. In this episode, we’ll show you how to manage your energy, just like your time. When you do, you’ll quit feeling spent every weekend and regain the energy you need to be more productive. Better yet, you’ll finally have the vitality to invest in your other interests and most important relationships.
