  • More Marketing Time: How to Procrastinate Your Way to Success

    · 00:43:28 · Social Media Marketing Podcast helps your business thrive with social media

    Do you spend too much time on insignificant tasks?Want to have more time to do what you do best?To learn how to multiply your time as a marketer by procrastinating, I interview Rory Vaden.More About This ShowThe Social Media Marketing podcast is an on-demand talk radio show from Social Media Examiner. It's designed to help busy marketers and business owners discover what works with social media marketing.In this episode I interview Rory Vaden, the co-founder of Southwestern Consulting, an organization designed to empower sales pros. He's the author of Take the Stairs. His newest book is Procrastinate on Purpose: 5 Permissions to Multiply Your Time.In this episode Rory will explore how busy marketers and business owners can get ahead by procrastinating.You'll discover how the principles of time management have changed over the years, as well as why and how to embrace the focus funnel.Share your feedback, read the show notes and get the links mentioned in this episode below.Listen NowYou can also subscribe via iTunes, RSS, or Stitcher. How to subscribe/review on iPhone.Here are some of the things you'll discover in this show:More Marketing TimeRory's backstoryRaised by a single mother who sold Mary Kay cosmetics, Rory grew up around women who taught him the principles of success. Rory says it also means he knows more about makeup than cars.During college at the University of Denver, Rory was recruited to work in a program called Southwestern Advantage, where he sold educational children's reference books door-to-door and eventually managed salespeople. He says that's where he developed a passion for sales.In 2006, Rory and three others started Southwestern Consulting, with the mission to help salespeople achieve their goals in life. They now have 115 team members and are working with more than 1,000 people.Rory's first book, Take the Stairs, is all about the psychology of overcoming procrastination, improving self-discipline and getting yourself to do things you know you should do that you don't feel like doing. It answers the question, "How do the most disciplined people in the world get themselves to be disciplined?"Rory's second book, Procrastinating on Purpose, addresses the question, "How do the most successful people today think about time and do they believe the same clichés we often hear about time management?" Rory says a lot of them don't.Listen to the show to discover what launched Rory's speaking career.Why people struggle with time managementRory says there is no such thing as time management, only self management.In the world we live in today, time management isn't just logical, it's emotional. Our feelings of guilt, fear, worry and anxiety, as well as our desire for success and our need to feel valued dictate how we spend our time—as much as our inbox, our to-do list and our calendar do. There's also a new type of thinker that has emerged: the multiplier.Rory shares the history of time management.Era one time-management thinking is one-dimensional. It was developed in the 1950s and 1960s, and was all about efficiency. All things being equal, doing things faster is better. However, there is a point of diminishing returns with efficiency.Era two time-management thinking is two-dimensional. This was ushered in by Dr. Stephen Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, in the late 80s. Dr. Covey gave us the time-management matrix. The Y axis was importance (how much something matters) and the X axis was urgency (how soon it matters), so it was a way to score tasks and prioritize based on their score. While prioritizing is a relevant skill today, there is a massive limitation—nothing about prioritizing creates more time.Rory believes you cannot solve today's time-management problems with yesterday's time-management solutions.People who are multipliers, Rory says,

  • Rory McKernan: CrossFit Games Update Show Host PH65

    · 01:28:58 · Pursuing Health with Julie Foucher "When you and I were doing the Update Show for example [in 2011], was a year after I had testicular cancer, a major surgery, and a child. And that's just my personal life. But the CrossFit growth was going so fast. At that point it was myself, Tony Budding and then we added maybe three more full-time people. Like Heber [Cannon] had moved here by then for video stuff, Leif Edmundson was running publishing, and Tyson Oldroyd was in the house, but that was still a small amount of people for the magnitude of what we were doing. So we were consistently seven days a week for 14 hour days. And it was all a labor of love." – Rory McKernan on the evolution of CrossFit Media Rory McKernan is a well-known face of the Reebok CrossFit Games as the host of the Update Show as well as one-half of the infamous Ro vs. Boz CrossFit Games Open rivalry. We sat down to discuss his background and how he discovered CrossFit, how he became involved with CrossFit Headquarters as a member of the seminar staff and media department, and how CrossFit Media has evolved from its early videos to producing live coverage and top-rated documentaries of the Games each year. In this episode we discuss: Rory's childhood, growing up in Texas surrounded by football and playing many sports Rory’s college experience at University of Southern California studying political science His post college life skiing and fishing working in Wyoming, Alaska, and Europe How Rory found CrossFit through his passion for training and working at a gym How Rory found himself working for CrossFit Media Rory’s passion for CrossFit training and his experience teaching on the Level 1 Seminar Staff How his roles with CrossFit have evolved The Ro versus Boz rivalry; what it represents and how it has grown What it's like to work at CrossFit Media Rory’s battle with testicular cancer and a congenital lung condition Rory’s perspective on life balance and how it has evolved throughout his career His day-to-day routine and his family Potential future directions for CrossFit Media Rory’s advice for newcomers to CrossFit His thoughts on the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games in Madison, Wisconsin Three things Rory does on a regular basis that have the biggest positive impact on his health One thing he struggles to implement that could have a big impact on Rory’s health What a healthy life looks like to him You can follow Rory on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

Improvement isn’t about a change in process it’s about a change in thinking. To solve today’s problems, you cannot use yesterday’s tools and strategies. Use your time today to create more time tomorrow. Do NOT disregard the return on time invested. Efficiency has a point of diminishing returns.
