You better have your calendar and then you got to know that if you’re going to add something to it, you have to take something off first.

So here we go on saturday I went to h-e-b recorded a podcast podcast here saturday at 5:30 in the morning at 5:30 till about 7:30, then I got into the, and I drove all the way to downtown tulsa to go to watch a cheerleading event, because it was in my schedule right so I watch my three daughters, performance, cheerleading event in the performingi left, because it’s not on my schedule to watch the other people perform all day, because it’s not something that I feel called to do, and my wife agrees with me. So I was able to leave the house getting back fast forward. To my time, then I came back to tulsa, came back to tulsa back to the man cave back to the to the thrive. What kind of studio away from the studio the man cave studios at business coach camp clark in chicken, palace, yeah and I got out my book. I got my book a little notepad from a journal. I took that with me and my daughter, havana she’s 13. We went to all three elephant in the room:men’s grooming lounge doors because I wanted to because I had it in my schedule because I wanted to. Why are you saying it like that? I must say it that way. People will remember why you need to put these things into your schedulecan. My father and I write down the things that I want to improve. Three stores in my sched kaizen. Then after I did that I came back to my house and I proceeded to read cover-to-cover a book that is a fabulous book at the back of a start. It’s on my desk. This I just finished reading this book and I read it years ago, but I wanted to finish it. It’s the it’s the startup book. It’s got, the the the startup play who’s, the author of that things started going through its startup playbook with david a kidder which I cool, as he interviews like a reid hoffman and elon musk, the founder of honest tea and only sara blakely, and so I wanted to finish reading that and then tab it up so that for the show notes, I can make it easier to access some of the words of wisdom from that.

A few days before that you had me put hey, grab my to do list and put plastic or book tabs on there. Soon, as I went to atwoods with my wife after that, and we had a great time at atwoods walking around looking for things like they could sell us and we’ve decided to order 15, silkie chickens that are being delivered to my house. 15 silkie chickens are kind of like a cat when you see them tickets, yet so I can check in before i. Believe you show me a picture. Silkie chickens are like divas and they are just there all about hanging out with you and they want anything. What we want you to pet him. We bought those the silkie chickens and then after we bought the silkie chickens, then we did. We came back to the house and then we went to the church and my son was dj. My son was dj at christian chapel. He wouldn’t watch them, beat you twice then after we did that after we did that, then we did. We went out to andolini’s on our date, which we do because my wife and I get to goweekly basis and we design our week scheduled until we designed the new org chart for elephant in the room, and then I hung out with my kids a little bit and I finished reading the book and I went to bed around way too late, because I should have finished the whole book and then I set my alarm for 5:30 and got up and have full business coach command over my schedule to the things I didn’t do now.
Steve jobs like to talk about that steve jobs has people think focus means saying yes to the thing you got to focus on:that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good idea is that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually is proud of the things we have it done, as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to a thousand things. This is steve jobs, the co-founder of apple and the former ceo of pixar. To reason why I was able to achieve my goals for my faith, my family, my finances, my fitness, my friend took my phone. Your coach can help you do this. It’s because I did not respond to a single text. Message cuz, my phoneand I did not respond to a single social media message because my phone was off and nobody came to my house. Cuz I have a gate in front of it, and so I was completely uninterrupted. It’s on the show notes will put a note here but jumping in june of 2016. A study reported that the typical smartphone owner typically gets interrupted 85 times per day, and they came to the conclusion that your smartphone now reduces your cognitive processing skills to the level that most people who have a smartphone on during the day now can only process wife in a 3rd grade level.

The ideas are not that complicated, but it’s about being steady and diligent with those ideas you turn your phone off. 80% of the dayactually yesterday was off of a hundred percent of the day and so I turn my phone off, probably more than that, but I would encourage. You drive nation to turn your phone’s off unless it on, for specific reason, do not very active and live that f6 life now
