MeaningfulHQ.com • EP114: Simplifying Success: "How Do I Get Motivated and Achieve My New Year's Resolutions With Simplicity?"

ABOUT THIS EPISODE: 

Q/A EPISODE: 

“Hello Dean, I’ve been binge-listening to your podcast for a few days and I’m loving your insights on productivity and meaningful work. My self-development question for you is on simplifying my way to success in the coming year. I want to adopt a simple yet effective system for achieving my goals and maintain my motivation to stay focused every day. But what I struggle with most is, that I can’t get myself to follow or stick with a complicated system like GTD. I know GTD works, but I really just want something simple. My question: If there was one single productivity tool you would recommend to get myself in order this coming year, what would it be?”

—(Question submitted by: Eileen E.)


In my 10 years of studying self-development material on topics like human motivation, productivity, and peak performance; I’ve only ever come across one single productivity tool that’s been reliable enough to recommend oner and over again…

The tool I’m talking about is

  • more flexible than anything I’ve come across,
  • is incredibly portable,
  • and it never—ever—runs out of batteries.

What’s this magical piece of productivity technology I’m speaking of?

Today I’m super-excited to introduce a new content line-up to the mix—and we’ll be calling it the FlashClass — Big ideas from popular books, condensed into actionable audio lessons, about 5-minutes in length.

Each FlashClass is …

  • designed to help you get more knowledge in less time
  • focuses on a single big idea from a popular business or self-help book from the getflashnotes.com library
  • made to make hard-to-grasp ideas easy and actionable

FlashClass: Protein Powder, The China Study, and Turning Cancer Off

  • Book: The China Study
  • Category: Health

Today’s FlashClass is inspired by The China Study, and it’s all about protein consumption…

In case you’ve never heard about the book, The China Study is the largest epidemiological study ever conducted. In a nutshell: 650,000 researchers catalogued and analyzed the death rates for 880 million Chinese citizens—96% of China’s population. Dr. Colin Campbell then, took the findings from the study, and wrote this book so that people everywhere could benefit from the findings… Especially those of us in the western world, who are amongst the un-healthiest people on the planet.

MeaningfulHQ.com/dont-think-outside-the-box.html • EP111: The Boxed Life  

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Almost every day, for four excruciating years, I was living in a box…

I woke up to a little  digital box sitting next to my bed stand… After slamming the snooze button on my little box, I’d finally rise, get ready, and head downstairs to eat a box breakfast.

Then I’d climb into my box car. Sit in traffic for 3 hours with a bunch of otherboxes. Drive to a big box building. And walk into my box of a cubicle.

Then I’d work within that box for a few hours; breaking every now and then forbox-related activities of various kinds—like the bathroom box, or the break roombox—until it was time to eat my box lunch in a box cafeteria with my co-workers who were also eating out of their very own boxes.

After lunch, I’d head back to my cubicle box to do more unexciting work—which sometimes involved shifting from one box to another or using the phone box to call other people in other boxes to talk about boring box things.

Sometimes though, I’d get so stressed out about catching up on all of my unexciting work, that I would stay in my cubicle box and eat my box lunch while working or talking on my phone box.

 

Obviously the boxed life wasn’t for me… Which is why I chose to leave it behind. But hundreds of thousands of people in the US, and millions around the world, are still living the boxed life… Maybe, *you’re* listening to (or reading) this right now, realizing that you’re living in a box… And if that makes you feel like you’re wasting away you’re life, then I’d highly suggest you decide to do something about it before it’s too late.

 

It never seizes to amaze me, that people can spend 65% of their waking hours working in a box building, in a box cubicle, only to be told that they should “really try to think outside the box.”

Are you kidding me?

Think outside the box?

 

How the hell could anyone be expected to think outside the box when everything they do is inside the box?”

 

They live in a box

They work in a box

they even shit in a box

 

And then they’re told to THINK outside the box!?

 

NO. You cannot “think” outside the box if you live your life inside of one. Click-to-tweet
