    115 Jeff Sanders: The Power of Saying No

    · Wellness Force Radio | Discovering Physical & Emotional Intelligence To Live Life Well

    There's more to time management than meets the eye. In fact, productivity and good time management are key to unlocking greater health and wellness. When we have our energy, focus, and clear mind, any goal can be accomplished with a head-on approach.  In a world where it's easy to be overwhelmed by messages, meetings, and task lists, how can we get it all done and avoid decision fatigue day after day? Many of us are trapped by the belief that to be productive, we have to continue to stay busy and say 'yes' to every task, opportunity, or event that comes our way. However, that's the exact opposite of being good at time management. Being busy doesn't necessarily lead us to be productive or successful. It's just adding on more and more stress that we have to struggle to handle.  In fact, deciding to say 'no' to something doesn't just allow us to take time back into our own hands, but it also liberates ourselves from unworthy distractions too. JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | REVIEW THIS PODCAST On today's episode, public speaker, productivity coach, best selling author, and host of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast, Jeff Sanders, joins us once again to teach us how to be more productive, say 'no' and take our time into our own hands. We'll learn from Jeff about different tools and life hacks that can help us get from Point A to Point B, schedule time into batch or theme days, stay clear from distractions, and discover our own purpose behind staying determined to move forward in our goals.  Whether it's e-mails, task switching, or you're all over the place to get a project done, Jeff has the perfect piece of advice to help you manage your time.  Listen To Episode 115 As Jeff Uncovers: How he became such a thought leader in productivity. What you can do to create the reality you want regardless of the reality you have. What Jeff did to let go of the habit of being his own worse critic. How can we be more productive? What does productivity even mean? What is a batch day as far as productivity? How do theme days come into play? How can we commit ourselves to having a regular batch day? The importance of having a why or a reason for becoming more productive. How to segment time blocks during batch days. What tasks are better to do early on in the morning? How the tool, Freedom, is helping Jeff stay clear of distractions like social media, emails, and more. What are the benefits of theme days and how can they apply to anyone? How we can give ourselves the freedom to dive deep rather than hold ourselves back. The top excuses we tell ourselves that hold us back from being more productive and accomplish more each day. Why we don't have to fall victims to saying 'yes' to everything that people ask us to do for them. How does Jeff plan everything out while still having the time and energy to focus on his wellness? Why health and wellness are so pivotal for our productivity and success. Jeff's advice on how to get started on being more productive and creating better results: Make a list of what's coming up in the near future. Combine different tasks that have the same theme or are similar. Find times in your calendar and assign batch or theme days. Jeff's 2 Minute Rule for answering e-mails. How can we switch from one task to the next without losing our focus? Why we should give ourselves enough mental time to switch from a creative task to an analytical task. How to know when it's time to rethink how we're managing our time. Jeff's mantra that helps him become productive when he's busy or stressed. The most important part of the day for us to change our state. The power of saying 'no' or cutting tasks from your schedule. Top 3 Takeaways From The Show Batch days can help us take advantage of the time that we have in a week. By focusing on related tasks on one day of the week, we can make better use out of our time and move forward with other tasks that we need to focus on for the remaining days. Having a why or reason behind wanting to become more productive is vital for the entire process. You don't need to get a jump start at 5 am to begin the day. When you love an activity or task and have the motivation to do it, it'll be so much easier to commit yourself to getting something done. Saying 'no' to different tasks or distractions will help you stay on track with your goals and move you forward. You can schedule out your tasks according to you energy cycles. Like Jeff, if you find that you're more productive in the morning compared to the afternoon, plan ahead to get strategic work done first thing in the morning before moving onto other basic tasks. Power Quotes From Jeff Sanders [tweetthis]"Once you realize that you control your own time, you control what you let into your life." - @JeffSandersTV[/tweetthis] "If I can build myself up from nothing to five miles a day, a marathon is the exact same thing. You just keep growing and building. And in the same sense with my life, I ask myself, 'How can I add a little more each to day to what I'm already doing?' If I can see a little growth each day, then those bigger goals that once seemed unachievable, are actually possible." - Jeff Sanders on recognizing that any goal is possible.  "When I stay committed to daily, incremental growth, it's much easier to envision what my next move is going to be." - Jeff Sanders on completing goals and tasks that can help us envision our future.  "Productivity is very much like success. It's the progressive realization of our worthy goal or worthy ideal. All in all, making progress itself is success." - Jeff Sanders on what being productive means to him.  "Rather than looking to your distractions as an excuse, think about what you could do with what you have." - Jeff Sanders "Theme days allow you to stick to one specific project or idea for an entire day. Theme days not only help you schedule for when things are going to happen, but they also allow you to say 'no' to an activity or distraction because you've already chosen how you're going to spend your day. It gives you a clear sense of priority so that you know what matters today and what does not." - Jeff Sanders on the benefit of theme days.  "Once you realize that you control your own time, you control what you let into your life. All of a sudden, you can shift gears completely and start to be more proactive on how your time is scheduled. Once you reach that point, your day becomes your own." - Jeff Sanders on how we can take control of our day and the time that is available to us. "Health and wellness is what makes productivity possible. Health is really the number one goal because it makes everything else possible. If you want to get tasks done, you have to be healthy enough to do so." - Jeff Sanders on the importance of health and wellness when it comes to our productivity.  About The 5 AM Miracle by Jeff Sanders The 5 A.M. Miracle is a resource guide for high-achievers. It is for anyone who has a wild passion for life and is in search of a structured system that will hone those passions, clarify their big goals, and produce real, amazing results. 1. Begin Your Day the Right Way Yes, it's true, I'm a big fan of early mornings. But, more importantly than waking up at an arbitrary time like 5:00 a.m., I'm a strong believer in intentionality. Choosing to wake up with a written plan is something most people just never do, and it's astonishing how much it can change your life once you embrace this single habit. 2. The 5 AM Blueprint: 7 Steps to Extraordinary Productivity The bulk of the book breaks down my blueprint for unprecedented progress. From healthy habits and productivity strategies, to review systems and professional-grade daily routines, you will find more actionable content than you could possibly imagine. 3. Built-In 30-Day Action Plan Let's not forget that at the end of the book I summarize the multitude of ideas into an easy-to-follow 30-day plan just so you have a clear plan of action.

    091 Jeff Grant: Activating Your Inner Coach

    · Wellness Force Radio | Discovering Physical & Emotional Intelligence To Live Life Well

    When working on our wellness goals, it's easy to forget we all have both an inner coach and an critic inside our mind. The inner coach encourages us to do our best, while the critic can shut us down- dissolving our state of flow.   "There's a voice inside of all of us that tells us to accomplish what we desire and never quit. This is our inner coach. This is a voice that tells us to believe in ourselves." - Jeff Grant   Fortunately, we have the power to bring out the best inner coaches within us and soften our harshest inner critics. On this episode of Wellness Force Radio, coach, mentor, writer, and ultra-endurance athlete, Jeff Grant of Hillseeker,  shares several hacks on how we can tap into our mind and emotions to become better athletes and more productive. Our emotions can easily distract us, but with the right mind tools, we can learn to use those emotions to our advantage.   Owning Your State of Flow   "In positive psychology, flow is the mental state of operation in which a person who is performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment during the process of the activity.” - Jeff Grant   Being in the mental state of flow means that we are both amazed and inspired to be our your best. It's the natural high we feel when we're on a mission or have completed a goal such as completing a great work out, finishing a race, or finalizing a project at work. Experiencing a state of flow means that we are present in the moment. It can be difficult to get into a state of flow, but there are several tools that we can use to help cultivate more flow into our lives. Once we understand what helps us get into the state of flow, we can jump right into it when we want or need it in our lives. When Jeff finds flow during a run or through music, he tries to transfer it to another part of his life or within his work as a coach and author.   The Four Stages of Flow   To find flow and stay within it, there are four steps: Struggle, Release, Flow, Recover. 1) Struggle To begin our state of flow, we need to struggle on purpose. We can do this by taking ourselves out of our comfort zone and placing ourselves in an unfamiliar place, situation, or thought. Once we have struggled, we can release. 2) Release We can release ourselves from our struggle by finding something to laugh at or something that distracts us from it. 3) Flow This state of release places us in a state of natural flow and euphoria. When we're in the state of flow, we can find immense happiness and feel like anything is possible to achieve. 4) Recovery Once we're in the state of flow, we never want to let go of it again. We think that we always need to have this euphoric sensation 24/7, but recovery is part of the process as well. Recovery is important because it allows us to connect each cycle of flow. A lot of us are looking for our next great achievement: a place on the podium, a best time, or a new goal accomplished. But if we're just focusing on pushing ourselves to our limits with new goals, we might push ourselves too far, too fast. By focusing on recovering, we're give ourselves permission to take time off and not push ourselves to do more than we can handle. With goals and technology, we focus so much on the quantitative numbers that we forget that qualitative facts are just as important to our health and wellness.  Flow isn't just applied to athletic performance, but to life performance and job performance as well. The 4 Stages of Flow can truly be applied to anything that we want.   Discover Your Best Inner Coach   To start discovering and using your inner coach to your advantage, think of the coaches or teachers that were or are still part of your life today. They most likely all have different voices and different teaching methods from giving cues and instructions to building confidence or being aggressive with a military manner. What did coaches or teachers do in the past do to help you? What were their voices like in different scenarios? If you can identify the inner coach voices in your mind, then you can learn how to build the best inner coach to help you stay focused and accomplish your goals. So, how do we begin to tap into that inner coach voice? Think again about different coaches and their styles of coaching. On this episode, Jeff shares 5 different coaching styles: Bouncer Teacher Guide Muse Motivator What's the Purpose of the Bouncer and Muse Coaches?   "The inner critic loves it when we worry about what other people think. It loves it when we highlight our fears. It has a strong dislike of the flow state." -Jeff Grant   The inner bouncer coach tells our inner critic to be quiet. Visualize a bouncer at a club who doesn't let others inside and acts as a bodyguard. Disarm your inner critic by giving your inner bouncer coach one new thought to help redirect your thinking. Our inner muse coach is the voice that reminds us to play and be creative. Jeff likes to tap into his inner muse by leaving the running trail and taking a different path. When he's listening to his muse coach, he may skip and jump around or go down on a slide at a playground. When we're so focused on quantitative results, sometimes we need to take a break and just play during our workouts to get into our state of flow. Playing can help snap us out of our stressful thoughts and help us experience a new state of flow.    Put Your Inner Coach to Use   You can practice listening to your inner coach by practicing meditation. Focus on what the voices sound like and pay attention to how they motivate you. As you meditate, concentrate on what your inner coach is telling you to do. Be sure to take your time and listen to each of the 5 inner coaches to create the perfect one. You may need a different inner coach for different moments and situations.   Tap Into Your Performance With Emotions   What emotions do you experience during a race or workout? Do you ever feel anger, joy, love, jealousy? We can face many emotions while we're exercising, but we don't tend to intentionally put ourselves into a state of emotion to see what positive and negative results may happen. Jeff likes to put emotions to the test by having his students focus on different emotions during a workout to discover what impact they have on them. With amazing results, Jeff discovered that different emotions can either improve or hinder our performance. By purposely tapping into emotions during a run, we can become aware of which ones serve us better.   What Else You'll Discover on the Show:   What inspired Jeff to write Flow State Runner Jeff's transition from a corporate career to running coach and author Jeff's experience as an Ultra Runner and Marathoner How to become the best coach for different students Jeff's personal meditation and visualization tips Jeff's favorite basic wellness technology   Win 1 of 5 FREE Signed Copies of Flow State Runner We've got 5 signed copies of Jeff's book, Flow State Runner, to give away!

    S3E2: Jeff Baker - 'Can an Ocean Rise Up from the Desert?'

    · Travel Stories Podcast

    Welcome to Travel Stories Podcast, bringing you Immersive, Inspiring & International travel stories of freedom and adventure from world travelers as well as actionable travel tips. Let's dive in!   When you reach a certain age, many people think it becomes their job to settle down at home and leave the living to the young people. Jeff Baker is not one of those men. When Jeff and his wife reached that certain age, and they saw their kids doing fun and exciting things with their lives, they said to themselves, “Why can’t we have fun?” So, they gave away most of their belongings, sold their house, and decided to travel while they still could and share their adventures as they went. “It’s like we’re 25 again,” Jeff said of their travels, and he was right - their lives are not average, but they are adventurous. Jeff is a radio host in his “typical” life, hosting the show Savory Road, which is part of an NPR public radio-affiliate station in Southern California. His philosophy is that everyone partakes in food, even if they do not partake in travel, so logic dictates that everybody who listens to his show can relate to it. Jeff knows that people seek narrative and reflection, just like they do when they come to the Travel Stories Podcast, so he strives to put that into each of his shows. In between talking with Hayden about starting your travels, working through your financing, and managing the travel lifestyle, Jeff shares a story which he believes addresses expectations. While he considers expectations to be a double-edged sword, he also knows they are important to any travel experience. His story, titled, “Can an Ocean Rise Up From the Desert?”, follows Jeff as he visits the less-traveled parts of Peru and realized that reaching the “next level” of travel does not necessarily need to be any specific event, but can just be what it is. Jeff Baker knows that bravery, optimism, and having an open mind while you travel are vital to having an enjoyable experience. Even though you may reach a certain age, and society may expect certain things of you - in the end, you live your own life, and travel is an essential part of that rebirth.   1:16 - Stay tuned for live streaming on our Facebook while Hayden is in Brazil, and you can ask questions for the end of season Q&A at our website. 2:32 - Hayden introduces Jeff Baker, who hosts a travel and food show on a local NPR affiliate radio station. He’s one of those people who reached a certain age and thought, “What do we do now?”, and the answer was, inevitably, “travel.” Jeff also has a great, baritone, radio-esque voice that Hayden very much enjoys. 6:27 - Hayden and Jeff talk about starting your adventures and your fun, exciting travel life even when other people your age think you should not be. It all started with a family backpacking trip through Europe in 2004, and Jeff caught the travel bug from there. 9:00 - Hayden talks about working with your finances and making big decisions in order to figure out how to travel in your life, and how not to give in to excuses. 12:00 - Hayden and Jeff discuss the benefits to having both the “typical” suburban lifestyle and the adventurous travel lifestyle, and how you can manage merging those worlds. 14:58 - Jeff’s story addresses expectations, which he considers a double-edged sword. Jeff titled the story “Can an Ocean Rise Up From the Desert?” Jeff visited the less-traveled Peru on his quest to become a master traveler while he was spending a month journeying through South America. Jeff went to a plantation in Peru, and met a man who had lived in Atlanta for a few years, so he knew fluent English. The plantation was beautiful, and the scenario around it astounding and mesmerizing, even though the roosters liked to keep him awake. Jeff and his group traveled to Paracas and saw, quite frankly, a whole lot of nothing - no life, they said; acres and acres of flat, sandy nothingness. They saw a number of locations - La Mina Beach, Red Beach - and Jeff was captivated by the sea and the far-off mountains. Jeff could not remember the last time he felt such a sense of rightness. It was here that Jeff realized that reaching the “next level” of travel does not necessarily need to be any specific event, but can just be what it is. 28:06 - Jeff talks about finding answers to the questions he has asked himself and the decisions he has made in his travel life. 31:16 - Hayden and Jeff discuss the necessity behind bravery, optimism, and having an open mind while you travel. 36:51 - Jeff talks about his radio show, Savory Road, which is part of an NPR public radio-affiliate station in Southern California. His philosophy is that everyone partakes in food, even if they do not partake in travel, so logic dictates that everybody who listens to his show can relate to it.

    EP070: Jeff Casebier – Mastering Self First

    · Stepdad Success Podcast - Leaders Raising Leaders

    Does your family stand for something? Jeff Casebier, a stepdad of two and a father of three from southern California, will discuss how he and his wife intentionally set their family on a positive path by establishing core values for their household. He’ll discuss his relationship to his stepkids and how his biological children adjusted to their new siblings.Finally, Jeff will talk about his ongoing commitment to self-improvement and how it has helped him to build a strong blended family.POINT #1: Your Family Can Stand for Something When Jeff and his wife decided to get married, they recognized a unique opportunity to set the tone for their blended family and their relationship by leaving the past behind them. Jeff said that from Day 1, he and his wife made sure they were on the same page about household values and how they wanted to raise their family. Jeff and his wife wanted their family to “stand for something,” so they established standards in their household. The family’s core values of Honesty, Faith, Grace, Togetherness and Respect are displayed on a white board that hangs on their dining room wall. Jeff said that having these core values removes the need for day-to-day management and discipline. He also noted that his children identify with these values.POINT #2: Have the Kids’ Best Interest at Heart Jeff’s stepkids spend half their time with their biological dad and enjoy a great relationship with him. Jeff said he is very supportive of his stepkids’ relationship with their biological father; their biological father also is open to the kids having a relationship with Jeff. Jeff views the kids’ biological father as one more person who can give them love, perspective and attention. Jeff said that he tries to see things from the perspective of his stepkids’ best interest and said that having two happy households is beneficial because it provides the kids with extra support. The kids’ biological dad will soon be getting remarried, and Jeff said the kids are excited about having a new “mom” in their lives.POINT #3: Guide and Mentor; Don’t Control Although many of today’s parents hover over and manage their kids, Jeff believes that he should play the role of a guide/mentor instead of telling his kids what they need to do. Jeff strives for an open and conversational relationship with his kids. He tries to let them find solutions to problems instead of telling them the answers and believes that this approach makes the results “stick.” Jeff said that his oldest biological child was challenging and got into some trouble, but recovered and came away from the experience with some important lessons. Although it was stressful to watch his son try to figure things out on his own, Jeff said it was important for him to deal with the consequences of his actions and learn from his experiences.POINT #4: Embrace Continuous Improvement Jeff said that when he met his wife, she motivated him to do everything he could to be a better person. He said that reconnecting with his faith made positive things unfold in his life. Jeff believes in continuous improvement and has participated in numerous programs to help him become a stable, positive role model for his kids and a better husband for his wife. Jeff participated in therapy to help him overcome trauma that he experienced while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. He learned that it is important for him to deal with his past emotions to prevent problems in the future. Jeff and his wife got intentional education on their marriage and participated in groups at their church to strengthen their relationship. Participating in the Warrior program gave Jeff clarity on what he was working on, as well as what it means to have a happy home and be a leader.“My wife and I sought tools for our family because we wanted our family to stand for something.”Meeting His Soul Mate

    Jeff Brown is the host and creator of the Read to Lead podcast, a top-ranked business and career podcast in iTunes. He spent 26 years in radio, and for 6 of those years he co-hosted an award-winning and nationally syndicated morning show. Using his background and talents, Jeff’s mission is to help you bridge the gap between intentionality and implementation. He does this through public speaking, mentoring, teaching, and most often through the Read to Lead podcast. Jeff is a firm believer in the mantra, “Leaders read and Readers lead.” TWEET: “Getting the #job wasn’t as difficult as keeping the job.” @theJeffBrown Changing paths: How do you react when circumstances force you to change what you THOUGHT was your path? It’s something many dream chasers face, and it’s important to be aware when new opportunities present themselves. Jeff shares how he went from studying to be a music teacher to an “accidental” radio career. It all started with a crash course and led to his first radio job over 30 years ago! TWEET: “I’ve been #fired from almost every #radio #job I’ve had.” #Overcomer @theJeffBrown The Reluctant Podcaster: Do you have an idea you’ve been hesitant to try out? Jeff first had an idea about podcasting LONG before he had the nerve to jump into it. He knew he had skills to learn, plans to make, and research to do---and it took one step at a time. It turns out that losing one job opened the doors for him to launch into podcasting. He admits that it took some poking and prodding from others for him to take the leap, but podcasting has led him to coaching and teaching about creating content and honing interviewing skills. TWEET: “It took poking and prodding from others to convince me to start #podcasting.” @theJeffBrown Inspiring people: Do you know how to REALLY listen? Jeff shares his personal experience in his mastermind group and how each person was able to share skills that helped the others. In your group or on your team, the two most important skills are being present and listening. Learn how to block out distractions and protect “sacred” time, and learn to listen and let the conversation flow. Jeff says that mastering these skills will make you a valuable part of your team! TWEET: “I had to get over the mental hurdle of what “reading” really is.” @theJeffBrown   Guest Recommendation: ONE action for a dream chaser to take—“The baby steps you take now may not feel like they make a big difference, but over time, they add up and they will be impactful.” OUTLINE OF THIS EPISODE: [1:58] Sharing gifts, giving value, and impacting others [2:46] How Jeff’s radio career began by accident [5:33] Getting and keeping a job in radio [8:13] Fighting for a job he loved [9:51] How Jeff “clicked” with the fickle field of radio [12:02] Jeff’s sign to move on [13:50] The plunge into podcasting [18:13] Surround yourself with positive people who are smarter than you [22:07] Realizing it’s time to move on [24:50] Two rules for your group or team [28:36] Jeff’s mantra and how Read to Lead began [31:27] The podcast episodes, authors, and the books [34:37] What it means to “give yourself permission” [37:13] When you don’t feel ready or worthy: Take action!

A couple years ago, he decided it was time to take the plunge into social media.Driving home from a long road trip, Jeff was listening to the Social Media Marketing Podcast episode with Cynthia Sanchez, and got intrigued by Pinterest. Once he started playing on the platform, Jeff noticed it was driving a lot of traffic to his relatively new blog.After Jeff's Google+ post, called Manly Pinterest Tip #1, about sharing a secret board with his daughter, did really well, he wrote Manly Pinterest Tips #2-5.  Jeff explains that his concept for Pinterest was a play on the fact that everyone thinks Pinterest is for women. His "manly" version really took off.Jeff did an initial version of his podcast with four other guys. They did seven episodes before switching formats. At the beginning of the year, Jeff brought back the Manly Pinterest Tips podcast as a solo, weekly show, and has interviewed Pinterest experts, like Peg Fitzpatrick, Rebekah Radice and Cynthia Sanchez. He's done about 30 episodes.Since the Manly Pinterest Tips podcast did well, Jeff embarked on an experiment in branding. He figured it took a year to grow a good, manly beard. So he decided he would launch the website and build the brand for a year. "If it doesn't work, I can shave the beard off, it'll be fine," he says. "Well, it worked."Jeff explains the concept of secret and group boards. A secret board is something that only you or you and other people you designate can see. They are a great way to gather info for yourself or for collaboration. You can also create public group boards. Jeff has a board with Peg Fitzpatrick about bacon and an Instant Instagram Tips.Listen to the show to hear more about Jeff’s secret boards.Men & PinterestContrary to popular belief, there is tons of stuff for guys on Pinterest. Jeff explains that men are the fastest growing demographic on Pinterest. In 2014 the number of men on Pinterest doubled. In fact more men use Pinterest in the United States every month than read Sports Illustrated and GQ combined.To make his point about good content for men on Pinterest, Jeff calls out boards from the National Hockey League, the National Football League and Major League Baseball. Jeff also mentions his popular woodworking board, DIY boards (from Lowe's and Home Depot, for example) and more. All of this content appeals to men.Listen to the show to discover why Jeff finds the stereotype about men and Pinterest funny.Buyable pinsBuyable pins are a way for people to purchase products through Pinterest. It's rolling out this summer, starting mostly with major brands like Macy's, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, and ecommerce platforms Shopify and Demandware.Buyable pins will be huge for business,

    The Cookie That Ended Jeff Garlin's Sobriety

    · Death, Sex & Money

    For over thirty years, Jeff Garlin has been a film and TV mainstay—writing, producing and starring in comedies like Curb Your Enthusiasm (coming back for its ninth season this fall) and The Goldbergs. He's also had a long career in standup comedy. He's so comfortable on stage that he says he often doesn't prepare at all for his sets. But that doesn't mean that Jeff takes his job lightly. "It's a real important thing, comedy, to make us human and help deal with pain," he says. "Life throws a lot of pain at people. My job is to ease people's pain." Comedy has helped Jeff deal with his own pain. He had a stroke at 37 and has struggled with his weight for years. He views food as an addiction. After seven years of sobriety—which for Jeff means staying away from sugar and processed foods—Jeff fell off the wagon when he indulged in a celebratory cookie. The occasion? One of his sons was guest starring on The Goldbergs. "Anything with a feeling brings about wanting to eat," Jeff told me. "I always say I eat Pop-Tarts raw because I don't have time to toast them. I need to shove down my feelings."  I also talked to Jeff about dealing with attention deficit disorder as an adult, slowly losing a parent, having sex in his 50s, and maintaining a fulfilling marriage. Jeff says the key to it all is being present, and tries to stay focused on whatever is in front of him. "When I sit in quiet moments and just stare at the stars, nothing pops in my head of looking back on my life," he says. "I don't like overthinking."
