Episode 338: The Best Productivity Routines with Mike Vardy and Chase Reeves

The Fizzle Show

Shownotes: http://fizzleshow.com/338 Which strategies help us stay productive with the bulk of our time? What do we do when one of these strategies loses its effect? What is the right balance between being focused on productivity and actually being productive? In the online business world, there is more than enough literature and content offering you ways to be more productive! These ideas can often be really helpful, sometimes seem like noise and can distract you from what is important. We want to assess where the general productivity conversation is currently situated and help you to gauge where you are with it! In this episode, we break down the ever-evolving inner and outer world of productivity. A common experience for many people seems to be that tactics and systems can help a lot but that their effect can wear off over time. So one of the main issues here seems to be how to pivot at the right point to a new way of doing things. Today on the show we are joined by our old bestie Chase Reeves and past guest / great friend Mike Vardy. Mike is a productivity expert who runs Productivityist and has some great, sometimes strange, routines that we cannot wait to share with all of you! We also talk about maintaining focus, virtual assistants, the negative side of productivity and what theming your time can offer you. For all this and more, join us today for another great show! Today’s episode is brought to you by Podia. Podia is a Swiss Army Knife for selling anything you need online.

14: A Stress-Free Approach to Getting What You Want with Chase Reeves

Courage & Clarity

Are you ready for this bonus episode?! It's a little out there and incredibly raw... and while it's a departure from the classic C&C format, I'm still a little electrified from this conversation.  As we prepare to kick off Season 2 of these podcast (YAY!), I was having a conversation with my teammate and friend, Chase Reeves. He asked me one important question:"How do you want Courage & Clarity to feel?" The question gave me pause for a few different reasons.First of all, it was refreshing. Questions like, "What should our goal be for this podcast?" often leave me scratching my head -- uhh, 1,000 people listen to it? A million people? Having Oprah on the show?? But how I want it to feel? That's a question I can actually answer. This conversation isn't about shirking results. Results are big time important mile markers -- I'm starting to see them as the guard rails that help ensure a project is on track. But I see them less and less as a guiding light. You see, "results" or "goals" as we traditionally define them are burdened with energy-draining traps laid by ego, comparison and doubt. Those goals want to keep us on the hamster wheel, chasing "success" without ever really feeling great.You have to start with how you want it to feel, not just when it's over, but while you're creating. Here's how Chase put it:"If you want some outcome, spend time practicing how you want that outcome to feel." I know it might feel like a stretch, but all the things you want to feel -- joy, competence, excitement, security, safety -- you don't have to wait to feel them. You can feel those things right now, before you reach "success" (<-- which, by the way, what the hell is this anyway?)"This is about excavation, not education." That's another nugget of wisdom from Chase, and we go deep on finding your own internal guidance versus constantly relying on the pressures of what the world around you says you should do. This was such a cool conversation, and I can't wait to hear what you think. If it's not your cup of tea, I totally get it -- Episode 15 launches on Monday, and we're back to the Courage & Clarity format you know and love! Let's get into it -- I'm talking about how to take a stress-free approach to getting what you want with Chase!
