NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “No wheat, no sweats and only meat and your fat will retreat.” – Clay Clark

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “I find it remarkable that I can explain the reality of a situation to people and still not change their point of view. The facts are very plain and the reasoning is very clear, but they still won’t agree with the conclusion. It’s crazy. Rather than learn from their experiences, they choose instead to engage in wishful thinking. Perhaps it’s more comfortable than reality. But I think that wishful thinking is one of the most profound human failings, the major reason that people adhere so strongly to wrong ideas. This doesn’t mean that you can’t be optimistic. You simply have to be realistic as well.” – Elon Musk (One of the founders of PayPal and the man behind Tesla, SpaceX, and SolarCity)

  • Family – Schedule weekly meetings for family

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “You either pay now or pay later with just about every decision you make about where and how you spend your time.” – Lee Cockerell (The former Executive Vice President of Walt Disney World Resorts who once managed 40,000 employees and 1,000,000 guests per week)

  • Faith – Schedule weekly meetings for church

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?” – Matthew 16:26 (The Bible

  • Finances – Schedule weekly deliveries of office supplies

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.” – Benjamin Franklin (The famous American Founding Father who achieved success as an author, a printer, an inventor a diplomat, a scientist, and as the inventor the “skullet.”)

  • Friendship – Schedule weekly meetings for date night

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “If you can’t find happiness in the ugliness, you’re not going to find it in the beauty, either.” – Chip Gaines (From Chip and Joanna – Fixer Upper) –

Robert zoellner, and he ussba entrepreneur of the year and business coach clay clark get ready to enter the thrive time show on talk, radio 1170, anything specific on your radio and they were talking about enhancing the efficiency of your life. But before we get into the details, z, you are probably the most efficient time manager I’ve ever seen outside of lee, cockrell and cockrell is a rare breed. This is the former executive vice president of walt disney world resorts, and we were driving I pick them up from the airport in the hummer, we’re driving to your house we’re going to have a staff party at your at your home, yes, i, remember we’re driving on peoria passed a place, that’s an auto car wash because you should pull over and I said. What do you need to wash this car and we’re right near one? We should you should pull over that way like one your car dirty? Why is it true regarding driving past it through this? The most efficient move? I mean that’s how you manage your business coach company like disney world, with a million customers a week and 40,000 guess what you’re a pretty close. You? Don’t listen, I thought that was going to be a little different than what it said. Yes, because because you are the perhaps the worst driver I’ve ever been with in my life, I’m scared in my life I took a little to get a little bit of chicken left on the bone. Here. My life took out 2 years ago, north of 70 I think that I was white-knuckling it and trying to be really really safe. Swipe redeploy the airbags, slow I mean it was hard to hear lee through his helmet I’m stuck I’m, not sure, if you’re the worst driver in the history of the world for sure, but perhaps right now, I don’t get in car accidents. If you look at my driving record, you would say was kind of like any cards. It’s because other people are swerving.

Yes, of course, I care about how many hawks, and so many we were downtown chicago and my wife declare that she wants organic soup and, if you’ve been around, my wife and my wife hasn’t eaten for awhile. If she wants organic soup, I’m like okay, I’ll get it for you just go once it gets into that hole. If you don’t get to be organic soup, I’ll couch eyeballs once it gets into that like smeagol ever want that to happen, that’s not good! For once. You pass that threshold fastidious about making sure that she keeps a steady intake of healthy foods and she eats consistently interval sore body never goes into fasting mode, and she has a diet that skewed high protein low carb. But it’s all this stuff that makes her look younger every year. Wedding photos I like what is,, how are you getting? Younger. You’ve been a guy in the last I’d say 18 months last 2 years you become very intentional about what you’re eating or not a health expert, but you become very business coach intentional, so why? Why is it important that everybody get you to get becomes intentional about what they’re eating and what are you doing on a daily basis? What’s your deal. Are you in the iv drip move. Where you are you going all meet all the time. Do you have a? What are you doing about 18 months ago? As you said, I met with the new kind of dr. Khan cheers doctor until they did this happen to tricia ness and they have an exercise person. They have until I get an 8-hour. You know your dog, organic lobster at least. Take on sierra mean. Is that where is that the food chain is healing mantra service tonight, and so they outlined a good. You know healthy diet exercise program to do cardio how long to do cardio the heart rain. For my cardio, we want to know where, if I just I just two to three times, we could do some cardio I’ll go down to have one of those electrical kind of things. You know anybody wants to want to work out. Song is right wow, that’s a mental picture right there, people listen this podcast radio show. They need the super moon supposed to last today. So, what’s your boobs right now, what are you doing for months now?

There’s a low-carb diet, but I’m not so low that I’m going into ketosis. We can talk about that from the show that you’re, not so low, i, correct, okay, I mean hello, carbs and I can’t eat anything. Basically, that’s white willow, except it’s a racist thing. Are you politically correct on the show? How do you know bumper sticker on his car says that if you’re white you’re wrong? That’s what he’s text bigfoot? What are the correct, clarifier? Okay? So here is the deal. We have multiple clients that we work with who own businesses were in the fitness industry, and if you sit down with him, we have a lot of doctors who work with you sit down with him and you said:hey I want to get in better shape. They’ll all tell you listen when you business coach eat, when you eat carbohydrates, it turns into is spike insulin levels which causes you to get back so just cut out the carbs. Don’t need to wait, don’t eat the sweets. Try to eat clean meats and there you go there you go and think about. It is and also you might have a sleep center. If people aren’t you listening out there you’re not sleeping well. That really lowers your efficiency to get stuff done in the next day. Do you make a lot of things scheduled-and you may say, I’ma have time, show time to schedule my life, but now I’m going to get all the stuff done.

I hate eating right. You don’t feel right and it’s hard to do the right thing. Next super moves. You want to schedule weekly meetings for your family. I, see this happen all the time, leacock roll. If you were here, the former executive vice president of walt disney world resorts. He talks about this, but if you’re, not careful, it’s not your friend or your sisters that there’s always one more deal. You could do hypothetically. If you’re, a residential, real estate investor turn to duplex investor turn to shopping center investor, there’s always one more deal. You could do. What happens is then you have like a wife and the kids and family, and you got a dj company. Carpet cleaning company you’ve got a haircut business. You got optometry clinic whatever you’re doing, there’s always one more deal and lee cochran would tell you this. He says you either pay now or you pay later later, with just about every decision you make about how and where you spend your time so. Eventually, even though we are capitalist pigs, we would recommend you would turn your phone off see and focus on family time. I think that’s when the keys is that when you’re with your family you’re with your family or not you’re, not working, you have your laptop out and not like I’m answering emails for import I’m, going to be okay and i. Think also, two of that’s where the business coach questions I can ask the most from young entrepreneurs is. How do I know if I’m spending too much time at work? How do I know that when you’re come home in your and you don’t remember that your kids names I have 5? So if you would look at them and go hey you over there big shooter picture guy, I love you, we start using those church names, even the church, two or three sundays in a row when you venture dude, you been introduced three or four times yes to somebody in passing and now you’re like is it dave? Is it doug said he is he? Is she i? Don’t know?

Why don’t we start calling your son brother, brother, brother or whatever your name is call susie? Also what happens what happens when you went to work too long? What happens if your significant other will? Let you know so that picture work, work, work, work, work, your significant other will let you know that they need a little bit of you time and listen to that then go. Do it and be be present, be there take turn your phone off, don’t have a laptop to have an ipad turned everything off and I should be with them, because that way, it’s meant to be with him a couple hours, but don’t feel like much more I want I want to do this next, one of her marshall cuz marshall. You are a guy. Your your man of faith you’re, also an effective your the tim duncan of business. The fundamentals, you’re known for getting being a guy who gets things done, you’re very diligent, you’re, a great steward of your of your time, and but you also understand, if you do not schedule time for your face, it won’t happen. So matthew 16:26 read what good will it be for someone to gain the whole world yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give exchange for their soul to marshall? The two questions I have is what have you given in exchange for your soul into? Why do you not go to church anymore? I, don’t go to church anymore because of all of the business coach people. Okay, I do is I watch td, jakes sermons from td jakes in the as part of my meta time every single morning and then for all of the big more orthodox church events is my mom was raised catholic, and so it’s very meaningful for heard for me to attend church with her on sunday. So we’ll go to a church to listen to td jakes. How do you have time? These? Are the questions I have?

How do you have time? I mean you shouldn’t you be working on a business plan or shouldn’t you be chasing chasing. The ladies. Around marshalls kind of a unique quadrant of single can I order. You marshall you down to 23 z’s it still safe. As can he go down in the dating pool 220? What’s the lowest, you could go and dating limbo for a guy like marshall 27. What’s the lowest we going to live the rest of my life like this 21 is probably using ego. I mean I’ve, seen others, ladies now, that are into their sixties and probably not a bad news,.

We come back from the break, get really detailed about his scheduling time to make sure that your your office supplies are automatically delivered chip. Why would you want to have your office supplies automatically delivered as opposed to going to office depot every single? Because you could do what I did when I ran the concrete company and just have to make that trip when you run out of paper or ink or whatever, and it kills an hour and a half of your productivity? And then they charge you with all the specials in the sales in the staples rewards? Are there trying to business coach review in there? So you just automate that stuff, so you can automate the delivery of your office supplies and z I know he mentioned it yet.

They have product line in the ton of different stores. There books can be found in all the books to all the book stores out there, any notable quotable that I read one of his books. That really jumped out to me is he says if you can’t find happiness in the ugliness you’re not going to find it in the beauty either. So here’s a guy who professes and by all accounts other people are saying this. As you get famous more more people come out of the woodwork to say well, this is how they really are. This is how they really are. All these people are coming out of the woodwork to say he’s sincere has been a happy guy, although hopelessly broke for a long long time before you finally figured out how to flip houses profitably before he finally figured out his niche, but he’s always been a happy guy. I think one of the keys to that is what the business coach relationship you have with this with your kids, your spouse, your neighbor, your cousin. Whenever you want to stay in a relationship with, can you talk to me check with with the household how you guys scheduled date night? Is it once every 6 years, saturday nights and then all day sunday? You know if we’re not doing anything for the show or anything, but we typically like to go out to dinner.

This last weekend was my wife’s birthday. So we went to the oilers game, went to dinner tonight his game and then, what’s that little place across from the bok, whatever cupcakes it’s been, so we went there with my daughter we like to go to in a local festivals movies, mostly what we do is like to have people over just have people over hang out in a fellowship grill, something and just hang out and talk. Are you still mixed up in the whole carney saying I made a new wife, get you out of hole, kearney know, but she said go ahead and take tackle that by myself. She kind of you know, I mean so it’s it’s very well, he’s managed a construction crew for years and he’s he almost got caught up in the kearney community it was. It was a thing where we rescued him from that after you leave help, you manage your own business. Like cabbage for the longest time yeah. It was a fork in the road of my life for sure. I was left to right, but luckily one with you guys, so it’s got to be on the radio show or be a heckler he does and and he you know, you can tell you been in that culture, cuz I always smell like cabbage, but you need to do you need with your with your significant other or the person you’re taking on the date. Both of you make need to make a list of things you would like to do if, if, on your date night, cuz they’re going to take turn to when every other week deciding you introduce this moved to me approximately four and a half years ago, and it really does work. This is a great mood to let say my on mine, I would put have a steak dinner and see an action movie. Business coach Steak dinner, action movie doctors, these days and I might put on there is to you know, maybe go to seafood, restaurant and then go bowling. You know you like seafood i, like steaks or you have a ball with a rose in it, I mean if you taking a live rose and gone to the process of putting it in yes, I built by built to fall myself. So I can never seen doctors a picture of the movie kingpin. That’s what it’s all about. Okay back to you and then she would write down her list. You know maybe go to one of her favorite restaurants, maybe red rock, canyon or and then go see a good target for like 4 hours look around on the list. You have to go shopping, put on shoes to walk from all those things you got to be like you said earlier, be engaged right and the thing about it is now so one week I take her list and I design a date night. You can either do it with her knowledge of it. I could surprise her or I know, so you don’t want. Maybe a boat ride or dinner at the lake in a boat ride, or something like that and so you’re on the boat.

When did she need to know she’s on about? You would do what I told her or some point to the whole day. That’s the case, that’s step one. So that’s kind of fun and it shows that they’re engaged and it’s not. This is not the same date night every every week, you’re going what you doing, who you want to do, i, don’t know what you want to do. That’s so true, I think a lot of people lose the momentum to go on a date. With that ridiculous conversation, what do you want to do you want to eat? I, don’t know, I’ll tell you this. We got to do today. Listen to me, thrive nation today sit down with your significant other and or brother and sit down and make a list of these things you enjoy doing because it just adds a variety. It’s a different copia in items and then and then what happens is this is then time when you’re going on the date night? Just the two of you, you don’t take 1/3.

And you have an attitude of it’s the two of you. It’s you against the world so tall that shadows cast of sugar, while you’re putting shoulders in the world. It just shows up shows up. Those are some super moves for your date night. Try it I promise it’ll, give a little bit of fun to your date night, getting those into a sexy. Thank you for that. You bet, and they just don’t make a difference. You know, because probably a lot of people do a date night, but they don’t really give me the don’t it’s. It’s not the same punch, my wife and i.
