HTB 035: The ONE thing to become truly successful. What do you FOCUS on?
How do you evaluate what to focus on? How do you decide what is important? What to give your attention? Know someone who needs a shift in focus…? Share this and be part of inspiring NEW habits or reengage existing habits that work. Transcription: We live in a world where we’re constantly bombarded with noise. Distraction, disruption and other people’s demands are flooding our minds on the daily. It’s on an all time high. And it’s not getting better, it’s getting worse. Whatever social media or news outlet you consume, the friends, family or community you listen to will strongly influence the narrative you choose to believe... How do you evaluate what to focus on? How do you decide what is important? What to give your attention? Today if we want to accomplish something meaningful, if we want to sustain our energy and be inspired and stay inspired we want to be in charge of our focus and be very selective of where we put our attention. We cannot let the environment, or our government, or small minded people living in fear dictate or control our future. You and I are here to fulfil on our mission, our purpose, whatever that may be, and we only have the time we’re given. And the clock is ticking. Take control of your time and focus or someone else will. Focus is a finite resource. It requires precision. Everything does not have equal value. Which is WHY you want to be selective. Go too wide, focus on too much and you’re slow. And slow is dead. Building a successful business and designing a fulfilling life requires that you know what you want, that you have clarity on what matters and equally important, on what doesn’t matter. What things do you say, “yes” to… and what do you say, “no” to? With some careful and dedicated thoughtfulness you will be able to predict your future because your yes’s and no’s will take you down a certain path. The one you want or the one you don’t. As a designer of your future where you can create more wealth, have a bigger impact on the people around you and create a deeper meaning for your life you want to become a master of removing unnecessary friction.

HTB 034: The biggest misconception about problems that every entrepreneur faces
The shift in thinking I had in my early 20’s is more relevant now than ever... The mistake the average person makes that separates many entrepreneurs is that they are not looking to avoid problems. They understand that problems are a part of life. And problems are there to be solved. Share this with those who could use a NEW perspective or a reminder of what is truly normal... Transcription: In my early twenties I made a very important decision. It was a pivotal moment. It’s one of those moments that changes your life. I decided to not end my life. I decided to live. Maybe your life didn’t make such drastic turns or maybe it’s been worse. Either way, I decided I wanted to be in charge of my life and I didn’t want to be confined to a boxed life and live according to other people’s norms. I wanted to pave my own path. I wanted to create a life on my terms, not a life that was dictated to me by the limitations of others. I wanted to earn as much as I wanted and not be limited by the value someone else put on me. I wanted to use my energy, my skills and my expertise based on my values and what inspired me. I wanted to help people my way. I chose the entrepreneurial life. Being an entrepreneur has not been an easy life, but easy is also not the goal. In fact when you search for an easy life you will be faced with a life full of challenges. Not any kind of challenge but painful challenges… (also known as problems) On the other hand, when you seek out challenges that inspire you will be supported and life takes on a whole new meaning. This is how you grow a meaningful and inspiring life. The mistake the average person makes that separates many entrepreneurs is that they are not looking to avoid problems. They understand that problems are a part of life. And problems are there to be solved. Every problem carries with it it’s counterpart solution. There’s no problem without a solution, just like there is no solution without a problem. Every problem births a new solution and every solution births a new problem. That is what real business and entrepreneurship is all about… solving truly difficult problems that add real value to customers. When you learn to love this natural evolution of life, nothing beats owning your own successful business and being in charge of your life. Why did you choose the career path or business you’re in today?

HTB 033: The secret to living more fully
Maybe you’ve felt the changes in the world impacting your life in more ways than one... Maybe you’ve stopped to think about WHO is important to you... Maybe you’ve reevaluated what really matters in your life... This is our way of inspiring ALL of us to live more, to unite and be in charge of our lives. Share this with those who are important to you and remind them you care about them. Transcription: What you focus on and where you spend your time, what you accomplish or fail to accomplish will be determined by the peers you choose. I often say, “You’re either influencing or being influenced.” There is no in between. In other words, every moment you’re interacting with the world, you’re either influencing the thoughts, emotions and behaviors of others or they are influencing you. Which is WHY you want to select and pick a peer group, be part of a community that both supports and challenges you. Supports you to live in alignment with your values so you can express who you are more fully, and challenge you, inspire you to grow and expand to your next level of living. It’s a natural part of evolution to want to grow and become more. Nobody wants to shrink, minimize or devalue who they are. Unless we’ve been living under a rock, we can all agree that the world has changed. I’m sure you have felt it, right? I know I have. Just a few minutes of conversation between us will reveal to me the narrative you’ve been consuming. If you have let fear or inspiration dictate your world. If you’re reactive or proactively creating your future. What are you watching? Who are you listening to? Fear will cripple you. Fear will compromise your immune system. Fear will have you abandon your dreams if you let it. Sometimes life and business can be a very lonely road. And if you’re trying to grow a business, create financial stability or build a healthy mind and body you want to be able to share those thoughts, struggles and opportunities with people who care. The right people who want to listen and give you NEW perspectives that make you grow and move you closer to your vision.

HTB 030: 5 Hacks To Boost Your Energy and Sharpen Your Focus
What do you do when your energy is low? What do you do when you lose focus? Well, most people just push harder and deplete themselves. There's a smarter way. In today's episode Satori will share his secrets to boost energy and get you aligned with your values. Let's get into the episode... Good morning, good afternoon, good evening wherever you are in the world and whenever you’re listening. It’s time for a brand NEW episode of halfass to badass. As an entrepreneur with a lot of moving parts, it’s easy to lose focus on what is important (there are tons of distractions looking for your attention) and sometimes it could be tough to maintain energy throughout the day. A lot of our clients that come to us, they want to be productive, they want to make more money and achieve more but struggle to keep the energy alive, they lose focus and build up a lot of stress and frustration. Many times they are very overwhelmed. Obviously this is very draining and taxing on their bodies and their minds. So in today’s episode I want to give you some simple, but effective and doable activities or actions you can do daily to boost energy and focus and watch your productivity and efficiency Sky rocket. Here are my 5 hacks to boost your energy and sharpen your focus. WATER Water is the best solvent to eliminate toxins, alkalize and remove inflammation from your body. I nourish my body and my brain. Anytime I feel my brain being tired or I experience some kind of brain fog, I drink water. How much water should you drink? Lots of people have different ideas around this and some even think you can overhydrate. For most people that will never happen. Of course it may differ depending on body weight, if you move a lot and which climate you’re in. But I have two simple rules you can adopt if you want. I drink half a liter (16 ounces) first thing in the morning. No matter what. That’s how I start my day. After that I do one of two things or a combo. Anytime I pee I drink a glass of water. Empty one way fill up another way. Or I drink water in combo with my time blocks. I’ll tell you more about that in a moment. If I sit and work for 50 minutes, then after that I get up drink some water. I don’t drink water after 7 or 8 pm depending of when I go to bed so that I don’t disturb my sleep I use my breath for relaxation But I also use it as a way to balance my nervous system. When we feel stressed or worried or overwhelmed we tense up, so by actively and intentionally breathing we start to balance our nervous system. Think about about it, you body gets tense automatically (unconsciously) you don’t have to think about it. But to relax you have to be intentional. BREATHING I do some stretching in the morning. I take walks in the morning and stack the breathing to it so I multiply the effect. Meaning intentional breath and walk together. MOVEMENT I was never a coffee drinker. Actually I was very against it for years because it is very acidic. I still believe coffee isn’t good for you. I used to work hard to get people to stop drinking coffee. But then I discovered a new way to drink it that has brain performance benefits and I made a new decision. I still believe you need to get quality coffee because a lot of coffee has mold. So here’s what I do differently. I brew coffee in a french press, I pour the coffee in a blender, add some organic grass fed butter, I add some kardemumma (for taste and because it is an anti-inflammatory spice) and mix it for 20 seconds. Then it’s ready. I do add cinnamon on top. Then it’s ready to drink. Why butter? Because the fat fuels your brain. So instead of having my brain get energy from sugar my brain is turned on by fat. Much more effective and keeps me balanced throughout the day. BUTTER COFFEE I connect to things that matter that inspire me. We all have things we value more and things we value less. I focus on filling my day with things that inspire me, fill me with energy and aligned with my values because that will make me not only productive but it will keep me fully charged throughout the day. This is also where the time blocking comes in which I mentioned earlier. I block 50 min for my most important activities. I have a timer on so I can focus on the task and not have to think about anything else at that time. Then when the timer goes off I do all of what I shared with you. I drink water, I breathe, I stretch, walk or do something to move and connect to the next inspiring thing I want to accomplish. CONNECTING TO WHAT INSPIRES ME Take what you’ve learned today and implement it in your day, your week, your month and watch your energy, productivity and inspiration grow massively. We can all have excuses or reasons why not to do something, but this isn’t one of those. You may have your habits in place, but if you add this into your routine you’ll be happy you did. If you’re focused this won’t take more than 2-3 minutes inside of your time blocks. I’ve got a lot of NEW and exciting episodes coming up so make sure you subscribe if you haven’t that yet, and share this podcast with people you care about.

Check out this one SuperPower to grow your success without settling for mediocrity or being apologetic… In today’s episode you will hear Satori share your one natural SuperPower. You’ll understand how to dominate your life and business and not let it dominate you. Here are some of the awesome things you will hear in this episode: Find out what’s costing American companies alone $450-$500 Billion. Find out how to take command of this one SuperPower that’s at your fingertips. Learn how to own the traits of the best to leverage your natural born leadership skills. So listen here to find out how Satori coaches the best and how you can have an opportunity to apply and talk directly to Satori about creating badass results in your life and business. --Transcript-- If you want to know the difference between the best and someone who’s name you’ve never even heard of, you better put away all the distractions and focus your attention right here, right now. What’s up my friends, this is Satori Mateu with a brand new episode of Halfass to Badas. Today we are going to tap into and understand one of your superpowers. The superpower I’m talking about controls everything around you, your results, or lack of results, what you do or don’t do. What you’re even willing to try. Before we get into the actual superpower, let's clarify a little bit of a current dilemma. We live in a world of mediocrity. We live in a world of low expectations, and victimhood. Today, that’s the norm. It's the norm we live in. The estimated annual cost of employee disengagement in the United States alone is $450-$500 Billion dollars. And of course, this impacts company growth, profits, productivity and the difference being made in customers and clients. If we want to engage ourselves, our teams and inspire customers and clients to make us the logical choice when they make a purchasing decision, and if we want to change how we live, what we stand for,we need to deliberately engage this Supowerpower and stop halfassing things. If we want to truly share our expertise and our knowledge, our wisdom, to be real authentic leaders in this world, we've got to step out of the mediocrity of the world. We've got to divorce ourselves of the low expectations and the victimhood we live in. Which means we can’t be the best in our field, to stand out, be badasses and victims at the same time. The truth is, we can't afford to be victims. Period. What is this thing we're going to talk about today? Own your best. This Supowerpower comes from understanding that you are born the best. You are born a Badass. That’s something to remember. This Superpower is an undeniable truth. Just remember it. No need to question it. Meaning you wouldn't even be here unless you had won the sperm race. We’ve talked about this in previous episodes. You wouldn't be here. It’s just as simple as that. Let's just own that. You were designed and born to compete, to win, to dominate, to be the best. It's in your DNA. Just own it. No need to apologize for it, anymore. But, it doesn’t guarantee your position. Just because you have everything, and you’re perfectly designed to win and you won once before doesn’t mean you can disengage and expect victory. Let me ask you, what happens when what is given to you goes unappreciated, unused, or even misused? It’s worthless, isn’t it? I know so many people who have lost important relationships because they didn’t nurture or appreciate them when they were in their life. No until when the person got tired of not being being seen and left did the person all of a sudden start paying attention. To own your best, to embrace all of you, means appreciating the miracle that you are. What else does it mean to own the best? It's to understand that all the human traits, every single one of the human traits, the characteristics, the qualities you have, everybody has. There's no trait lacking in you. Nothing is missing. With that said, it's interesting, if you look at the word, the definition of a trait; a distinguishing quality or characteristic. Here's the problem with that. We judge and minimize ourselves. We compare ourselves to others as a way to separate ourselves to be distinct. We look to create a unique identity for ourselves, we want to be different. This can go two ways, we either minimize and crush our worth that way, or we make ourselves bigger, we put ourselves on a pedestal, as a way to feel more important, more significant, more special. But in humanity, every trait in existence, you and I have. Nothing is missing. We have the trait and the anti-trait. Sometimes you’re up and sometimes you’re down. Sometimes you feel strong and sometimes weak. Inspired and uninspired, authentic and inauthentic. We got it all or you wouldn't even be able to recognize it. Whether we define it as good or bad, it's really more about our own judgment and perceptions, meaning every trait has its value in the right context. The problem is, we falsely believe we lack some traits. We often believe others have things we don't and that we're just born that way. More accurately, our traits come into optimal use when they’re in alignment with our highest values. I’ll show you persistence, creativity, resilience and dedication when it comes to fighting for our clients well-being and success and our family, but you put me in front of something I don’t like and you will see, lack of engagement, lack of focus, lack of dedication, low energy because it’s not important to me. But I have all traits. Is this making sense? We falsely believe we're lacking. The reality is, you have them all. To own the best is to own your traits, all of them, because they're all useful in different contexts. When it comes to eating crappy food, not getting sufficient sleep or taking care of my clients, with those kind of habits or behaviors I want to be inconsistent, lazy or procrastinate, you know what I mean? Because I want the opposite. I want to eat healthy food. I want to take care of my sleep and I want to take care of and nurture our clients. Are you following? You want to know how you can use your natural design, your best, in order to accelerate your wealth (which really means well-being), accelerate the results you create for yourself, your clients, your family, be able to love and connect and deepening your understanding of the world within you and around you. There's a problem. The problem is that you came out a winner, and as baby people were impressed just by you passing gas, mistaking it for a smile, right? "Oh, look at that cute little smile!" You were even celebrated for pooping. Believe me, that didn't last long. Think about it. Right? Later in life, after being praised for your mere existence, now people are fast to judge, true? People are inconvenienced by your ruthlessness, your persistence. I mean, this is how you came here. Unapologetically. People started judging it, being inconvenienced by it. They start rolling their eyes, sighing, trying to remove your unapologetic existence. "Oh, don't be so energetic! Don't be so loud! Don't be this! Don't be that!" Right? They try to have you apologize for everything. What happens? You slowly start accepting it and you dim your light. That's the problem and we've got to shatter that problem once and for all. Because if you don't, if we don't, we'll stay mediocre, and there's no growth in that my friend. There's no development. The world will stand still. Think about it, if there were no Steve Jobs, no Elon Musk, no Bill Gates, no Oprah Winfrey, no Richard Branson, and if there wasn't a you. Can you think about these people? They have the same traits as you. They're just using them differently. According to their values. According to matters to them. They're using maybe their persistence to innovate, being creative in their form. You have yours. They still have the same traits. Maybe they're using their focus differently. They're using their time differently. They are no different than you or I. How do we take this piece of owning the best and apply it daily? How do we engage this superpower, because it really is a superpower. What’s the kryptonite? Disowning your traits. When you disown your traits, you disown you. When you disown your traits, you disown your expertise, your wisdom, your knowledge, your experience, you disown your clients because you can't make your unique difference in their lives when you're minimizing yourself, when you are dimming the light of your SuperPower. When you're disowning you. Think about that, because if you get this, if you really understand this at the core, you'll stop minimizing, you'll stop apologizing. You'll stop procrastinating in sharing your gifts, your knowledge, and your expertise. This is how you change the world. This is how you leave a legacy. Changing the standards for those who come after you, this is how we play a bigger, more meaningful game. This is how you apply yourself. The best. How do we do it? How do we engage our superpower? How do we engage you, the born you? The one that is here right now? First of all, I want you to understand, we all have a tendency to dismiss or hide traits. So here is a simple yet powerful way to get going. Let’s identify and clarify a trait you admire in someone else. Why do I choose a trait you admire in someone else? Because if you admire it in someone else chances are you’re minimizing it in you. It's a simple way of doing it, a simple way of getting clear on it, so we can understand what a trait is. That's how we can distinguish it. We look at something someone else has, someone you admire or respect, a trait you admire, a trait you wish you had or had more of. Think about it right now. What’s the trait? Who has it? You see the trait? What is it? Who is it? You look for when and where and with whom you've demonstrated this trait. Go to a specific moment? Where are you demonstrating this trait right now? We'll talk about this and look through some examples. Thirdly, ask yourself, “Where do I want to demonstrate this

Today, we are going to talk about one of the most challenging, most questioned, and most provocative topics I see clients and their families, and business owners struggle with and I believe it's the one thing that runs everything you do. Today’s topic controls your beliefs, your perspectives, your focus and therefore, how you run your business, how you care for your family and whether you’re rich or broke. It literally filters everything you do and controls the impact you have. Your health, and your fulfillment hinges of you of you taking command of this area. Have I kept you in enough suspense? Good What we’re talking about today is to own, truly own, your dark side. The question then becomes, of course, what is the dark side? So let's talk about first, what it's not. It's not bad. It's not ugly. It's not wrong. It's not all those things you've been taught it may be. It's not something to move away from, but rather, something you want to move towards. Something you want to embrace. Because, this is where your true desires, your true dreams, your wants... live. Your secrets live here and so does your inspiration. More about that in a moment. Your instincts live here. Your imagination lives on the dark side. Your nature lives on your dark side. Your wildness, your spontaneity, your boldness, your loudness, your life force, your ruthlessness, your relentlessness, your persistence, your power, and your love lives in your dark side. Let me clarify what I mean when I say your love lives there. Your genuine care for other human beings live there. This is not the manipulative you trying to get attention. This is not the pretend stuff. Not the fake friendliness. Not that politeness, and fakeness which is not you, anyway. Think about that. When you're being polite, you're not being you. You’re trying to be something other than yourself. You’re trying to be something others want you to be. You're trying to placate and appease others. You're trying to do something so people will like you, respect you, appreciate you. It's a buying of love and affection, of respect or whatever you want to call it, but it's not you when you're being polite. That’s a mask. It’s prostitution. And we’ve all done it. Do you know what I’m saying? Hope you do because this is a critical understanding if you want to build a successful and fulfilling life, business, marriage or be an influential leader of any kind. I remember being a kid tippy-toeing. I remember being an adult tippy-toeing. I remember that feeling of talking to a client and being care-ful, rather than care-ing, working really hard to not say the wrong thing, to not make them annoyed, or disappointed. Listen, everything that’s part of your dark side, you’re hiding, you were taught to hide. You were taught it was bad, which is why you’re hiding it to begin with. Are you following? I think if you stop for a moment and become aware you can feel when you’ve said yes to something just to appease someone. It’s so nauseating and crippling because it’s not you. Are you with me? It’s some contrived version of you. It’s just inauthentic. And you’ll never feel in alignment with yourself and your highest values when you do. Again, I’m not talking about genuinely wanting to do something for someone. Wanting to care. That’s different. Your genuine love, your genuine caring, your authentic love lives in the dark side. The real you, not what you've been taught and conditioned by society or maybe your parents, lives there. The unpostured and unmasked you. Yeah, is this cool stuff? Now, the problem here is you've learned to shut that down, to minimize your nature. You've learned to tippy-toe, to apologize, so that people will like you, approve of you and feel comfortable around you. It’s been indoctrinated and conditioned into your very core since you were a kid. “Be nice. Be good. Say thank you. Be polite. Be respectful. Smile. Be happy. You’re such a good boy. You’re such a good girl. You make mommy and daddy so happy.” Or just reverse it… “Don’t say that. Don’t do that. Don’t ask so many questions. Just do what I tell you to do boy. Don’t question mommy or daddy because they always know best.” Don’t question authority. That’s how we are trained. You and I were trained to fit in. We were trained to please others and to live into their values and not make them uncomfortable. So I know it could be hard to strip away the mask and be you. How do you be you without it? I will have to dedicate an episode just for that. Today we’ll open up the eyes for it and give you something actionable to start making the shift. How do you do fit in? You do that by playing small, by not standing out, by trying to fit in. This is what you've learned your whole life. It's been like a requirement in order to receive love, to receive appreciation, and to receive the respect of your peers; of your family, your friends, and your clients. It's the place where you've been going for your survival. That's not the place to live or thrive. If you’re thinking, “I don’t do that.” Stop and ask yourself, “Where do I do that?” Because we all do to some degree, and I just want you to notice where and when you do so can free yourself from it. If you feel uncomfortable even hearing me talk about this, I get it. If you feel any resistance to what I’m saying I get it. Because your whole life you’ve been trained to not go against the grain. It’s natural. It’s normal. It’s what you know. But it’s also what makes you empty, unfulfilled, stressed out, overwhelmed and stuck. It’s what fuels perfectionism. I’m not talking about growth. I’m talking about the addiction of perfectionism. The constant futile chase for praise and acceptance, which just makes the gap bigger and bigger the more you try to fill the emptiness. I remember doing that with the people I admired. I did it most of my life; I would put them on a pedestal. Teachers, coaches, business icons, certain clients. I did it with my wife when I first met her. Most of us have done it so repeatedly, that it’s automatic and we pay no attention to it. This is not the place where we’re sharing and expressing our true gifts. Now of course, we’re smart, we don’t do things that doesn’t bring us some sort of benefit, some kind of pleasure, right? So happens when you don't own your dark side? You get the illusion of people liking you. At least, it looks like it on the surface. They're not liking you. They don’t even know you. All they know is your facade, your mask! You know what else? They're liking that you're doing and fulfilling their wants and desires, but for many people, if you didn't do that, they may not like you and they may not be so nice to you. Disowning your dark side, is actually not a service to them. It's a disservice, because they don't even get to know you, and they’re stuck living in their fake little bubble. Not good. Not good at all. So you'll have less enemies. You'll push less buttons. You're keeping homeostasis, so to speak, but nothing changes. You have no real impact on the world. You won't make any real money by doing that, because you won't stand out. You'll be part of the mediocre, the average person, so you won't be remembered. And if we’re talking about having an intimate relationship, it will be shallow at best, and parenting? Hmm fueled by disappointments on both sides. This is the consequence of not embracing all of you. People will guilt and shame you for not behaving the way you should behave. This is what humans have learned to do to control and manipulate other humans since the beginning of time. And it’s still happening. Why does this matter? Because you want to be a free human being. You want to be able to be fully and boldly you and never try to be anything else or anyone else. And not have to apologize for it. Just recently at the Golden Globes Award in Beverly Hills they were promoting flu shots. So they walked around all the celebrities and campaigning for people to get their flu shot. It was a very awkward moment and many celebrities looked very uncomfortable. Why am I sharing this? Because this is an example of shaming and pointing people out who are different or acting different than what is being promoted. They said, “Hey if you’re anti vaccines just put a yellow napkin on your head and we’ll know who you are. Companies, Government, society, the news use it all the time to control our behavior, control our focus. It’s time you own you. All of you. If you don’t you’ll just minimize your true nature which means you will never get paid your worth. Your business won’t grow at the level you want and how are you ever going to have an edge? People are not going to pay you for something that is not special, that doesn’t stand out. And the people who care about you, like I do, we want to experience your real genius. Even when I say that, you probably thinking, “Well, I'm not a genius”. Well, how do you know that? Who told you that? You can't really help and serve your clients or your family, if you don't own your work, if you don't own your dark side, because they won't get to the real you, the best of you. All they get is a muted version of you, a crippled version of you. Which means, they're not being served at a level they could be served. Which also means, you're not going to be known as the authority in your industry, because you'll keep minimizing your worth. You'll keep minimizing yourself, because you're disowning your dark side.

HTB 022: Why Balance Is A Lie
Here are some of the awesome things you will hear in this episode: Find out how to break the fantasy of living someone else’s life. Find out how to remove friction, stress and overwhelm. Learn how Satori sees work-life balance and how it looks in his life. --Script-- What is balance? So many entrepreneurs talk about work life balance and how important it is. But according to who’s definition? In today’s episode we’re going to talk about why a balanced life is a lie and why you don’t want to be seeking it If you ever find yourself struggling with how to organize your thoughts, maybe you’re overwhelmed with how to prioritize or feeling stressed about what to focus on I want you to know, first, you’re not alone. Second, if you want a more effective, more meaningful structure to your day, today’s little chat will give you clarity and give you a new perspective on the idea of work-life balance. I did a google search on work-life balance and I received 1,690,000 results in a heartbeat. Most entrepreneurs before they start working with us have a million plates spinning at all times, and they have a hard time structuring their thoughts, and don’t know how to remove the growing stress in their life. They work so hard to have a functional family. They want a thriving business, but there’s a constant battle between dropping and picking kids up from school, driving them to after school programs, keeping a clean home, cooking, having date nights, fitting in their meditation or yoga, making sure everyone in the family feels seen, keeping up with their social life, while not dropping the ball on their finances, making sure bills are being paid. You know what I’m talking about, right? So if we think about it, we can conclude that we’re all striving to keep the plates spinning without dropping or breaking any of them. True? It’s an aim to have a balanced life, fair to say? What’s killing entrepreneurs and families today is the fantasy and illusion of this perfectly balanced life with no stress and no complexities. Instead it creates complexities. Here’s what I mean. Why would we want to create a work-life balance based on some fantasy society, or social media put in front of us? Doesn‘t make any sense. It just creates unnecessary friction. Yeah, let’s overload our kids with activities and playdates so we can be good parents that give our kids opportunities, and let’s post on social media every three hours so we can stand out and won’t get left in the dust by our competitors. And let’s buy every course, attend every conference, and oh by the way, make sure you get those washboard abs and sign up for the next triathlon. That sounds intelligent. No. It makes no sense. So instead of overwhelming and stressing yourself out, judging yourself that you have to be or fit in to some kinda fantasy criteria, wouldn’t it make a lot more sense to strip away the friction, remove all the stuff that in the end just makes you mediocre because you’re not focused and you’re spread too thin. What if instead you were super clear on what really matters to you to your business, to your family and found those core critical areas that really moved the needle for you. The name of the game is called Precision Based Growth. We also call it Deliberate Growth. Here’s the big picture. We know if we can agree that the money you want, the family you want and energy you want to build a life that is sustainable doesn’t come from doing a million things and doing everything half-ass, but rather doing a few critical things right outside your comfort zone, with focus and intention and being very deliberate. Because this is where the real growth happens. It’s a scientific fact, well known in neuroscience. You with me? Knowing that, then we can also agree that it doesn’t make any sense to give everything equal importance. When you make everything important nothing becomes important. Nothing gets the necessary attention and focus to create momentum. So in the precision based growth approach, you ask yourself, what do I want? What do I really want? Not based on the all familiar past, not what everyone else thinks I should want or create? But based on an unknown, unpredictable future. You’re creating from a clean slate. Then you ask, in order for me to achieve this what are the core key activities that will help me get there most predictably?In other words, not all actions are equally effective. And what do I need to remove from my life to eliminate friction, to remove stress and overwhelm and accelerate growth? We’re talking thoughts, emotions, habits (internal and external) You may say, “Hey I want to make more sales, I want to bring in more business, have a bigger impact.” And you notice that the first thing you do in the morning is check your inbox because you “think” you have to and you feel bad if you don’t. So it becomes an addiction. But then you realize that you’re no longer going to be a slave and living in reaction to everyone else’s demand, right? So you’re like, “I’m in command of my business. I’m in charge of how I live my life, of my time and how I take care of my family.” So what do you do? After your morning routine (focusing on your well being, first, of course) your first timeblock for work is now dedicated to building key relationships and closing new business. This means, you’re now consciously focusing and giving attention to activities that will maximize growth and meaning. It creates a ripple effect. You’re helping more people. Bringing in more revenue. Growing your company. Removing stress. Sleeping better. You’re being more present with your family and more fulfilled. Got it? Here’s what happens when you do this. First, you get tremendous clarity, and we’re cutting out all the unnecessary, unwanted stuff; the thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and habits that got you stuck to begin with and you’re simplifying your life, your business and growing like crazy. You’re removing internal and external obstacles that in the past would’ve slowed you down and even making what would’ve been impossible to achieve, possible. How cool is that? You’re literally changing timelines because when you remove friction, and focus on what matters, everything accelerates. Are you getting this? I hope you do because this is so key to the entrepreneurial life and if you want life optimization. And we create and design this for our clients all the time. Because we know the other road leads to burnout, disease, divorce and disengagement. Not very inspiring. Do you agree? We could of course go much deeper on this, but I just wanted to give you something to spark some inspiration as you think about your life and how you design your work-life balancing act. Because that’s what it is, but it’s not what you’ve been indoctrinated to believe. It’s more like a counterbalancing act. To give you a peek into how this counterbalancing act looks for me. My office and my work life is mainly from home… and it’s intentional, that’s how I want it. I don’t have to spend two hours a day in L.A traffic, no need to plan when to best leave or come home. And since my 3 boys are world schooled, every morning instead of fighting traffic we take a family morning walk together. We have home cooked family lunches and dinners most days of the week. And very often I can take a break in the afternoon and play with my family in the pool. Have some fresh cut watermelon and enjoy their company. Does that mean I don’t have to focus and take command of my time? Of course not. I’m just very intentional about it. Does it mean, I never get interrupted? Don’t get asked questions, “Dad can you draw for me, dad can you find my backpack, dad can you wrestle with us? Can we watch a movie?” Are there moments when my boys are playing in the shower, being loud and splashing water all over the bathroom floor and need my help? Yes. But you see, it’s by design. It’s by choice. I have my blocked morning routine. I have my morning team meetings. My blocked key activities before lunch. My timeblocks for when I serve my client. I have my 20 min research time when I might read a book. I do that in the sun in my shorts so I can get healthy light on my body, feed my brain, get some vitamin D and be away from the junk light from my computer. If you’re wondering if I ever wish to get more done at the end of the day or if there are days when I wish I had more energy or didn’t have to be stuck on the phone with the bank for an hour. The answer is yes, or course. But I look at where do I invest 90% of my energy and focus? And honestly, because my life is by design because I have determined what truly matters to me, where I’m most productive. Where I make the biggest difference. And how I can serve my mission of creating millions of focused and deliberate entrepreneurs that produce more with less - where they have more meaning, productivity and more growth; a deliberate, simplified and fulfilling life and business, I am so grateful. I can’t even imagine doing it any other way. So many people leave for work early in the morning. Come home late at night when their kids are sleeping, see their spouse maybe for an hour if they’re lucky before it’s time to go to sleep. They only get a few hours to connect on the weekend. Not how I want to live. But nobody gave me this lifestyle or way of working. It was created. Sometimes people make themselves so busy because it makes them feel important. I rather let my mission be important and find the most efficient way to make it happen. You see, only when I have the illusion or fantasy that I won’t have any friction, or when I have imbalanced perceptions do I feel stressed and out of balance. The dream you want, the body you want, the business, the marriage may never happen if you don’t take command, or wait for the perfect time. What do I mean? When you think “some-day we’ll do that.” “When the kids grow up we’ll take that vacation.” “When we make enough money, then we’ll spend more time together…”. Don’t wait. Don’t wait for that fantasy life that is designed by someone else. It won’t work. It’s has to be your design. A Balanced life is determined by your va
