Tiffany Taylor, Schedule Optimization, Time Management

Great to be joined by Tiffany Taylor this week. She’s a productivity and time management coach.

There used to be a time when working more hours yielded more income, but there will always be a cap on time, as you’re seeing. The key is to scale results without scaling stress and workload. We all want to get more done in less time, but your scheduling and prioritization skills alone will determine your level of success.

How did we end up here? Productivity in the Industrial Age was all about getting more done in less time, but when the internet came around, the traditional school of Time Management taught humans methods that were fit for computers. That led to blaming individuals for lacking motivation and discipline when they couldn’t keep up. (Ouch!) This really applies to those of us in sports.

Today we’ve finally made it to the Knowledge Age where Entrepreneurship & Management are being introduced to Single Tasking, Flow State and Deep Focus. While times are changing, much of our programming for Productivity is archaic and unfit for life in today’s fast-paced world.

Hustle Culture pushes phrases like #TeamNoSleep and #WorkHardPlayHard and it’s no wonder hard working Americans are left scrambling for therapists & psychiatric medications to stabilize their sanity.

Your Transformation…

Imagine waking up every single morning full of energy, without an alarm clock. Your mind is still and you go about your schedule without a scattered mind spewing thoughts at you in every direction. Your morning routine is optimized not based on the most recent book you read, but based on your biological needs to optimize your brain function. As you sip on fresh mineral water, you reflect on the days that sleep used to be a luxury and realize that you’ve finally reached a place where you can sleep, exercise & get proper nutrition without feeling guilty for not working during that time. You’re mentally strong and prepared for a high-caliber day where you have all the time you need to complete a day’s work.

Tiffany is here to help and explain.

Bob Boylan, Author ‘4 Ideas with Actionable Wisdom’

Our thoughts define who we are. But for many of us, thoughts of work and the things we need to get done consume our waking hours. How can we achieve a more balanced life if we are so overwhelmed?

This is where Bob Boylan and his new book, 4 Ideas With Actionable Wisdom, come in, offering concrete, actionable suggestions from which readers of all ages can benefit.

Rick talks to Bob this week!

“People don’t realize that they’re actually living in ‘white water,’” Boylan says. “Busyness has become their normal. They don’t realize that they can improve their lives by just spending a little time each day in ‘calm water thinking’ to help generate fresh, thoughtful ideas and improve focus.”

Bob Boylan is a retired presentation skills trainer, professional landscape photographer, seasoned traveler, and the founder of Successful Presentations. He has been self-employed since the age of 31, which has given him the flexibility to travel, explore, and live his life outside the box. A lifelong encourager, Boylan wrote 4 Ideas with Actionable Wisdom to help people see their lives through different eyes and to realize that there is so much more they could be doing to live more effective, “calm water” lives.

Written in short, digestible chapters, 4 Ideas with Actionable Wisdom offers insight that readers can act on now. Readers are encouraged to learn to balance their lives, to be more grateful, to make changes more effectively, and to be more creative. Boylan’s included discussion questions help readers pinpoint exactly where they can change their own thinking, find calm and focus, and take more effective control of their lives and what they will become.

“No matter how young or old you are, you can always take steps to change your life for the better, and Bob has some excellent, wisdom-filled advice to offer. Highly recommended!” – Rachel Song, Editor and Writer

“My goal is to make sure that readers not only understand my ideas but use them,” Boylan says. “We become what we think about. Ultimately, you are in control of what you think about and how you think about it.”
