Instead Greg was courageously vulnerable in sharing his own family struggles over the last two years as they navigated a scary road with their daughter struck by a mysterious brain condition that doctors had no answers for. Hear how Greg found the lighter path and now has an even deeper appreciation for the moments that matter. @gregorymckeown Effortless: Make It Easier to Do What Matters Most What’s Essential Podcast More at www.notimetowasteproject.com or follow @notimetowasteproject

Turning Habits Into Rituals to Live an Effortless Life with Greg McKeown

The Dad Edge Podcast (formerly The Good Dad Project Podcast)

Greg McKeown is a husband, father, author, public speaker, and leadership and business strategist. He is the author of the books Essentialism and Effortless and the CEO of McKeown Inc. McKeown is a renowned LinkedIn Author for the Harvard Business Review and his writings have appeared in the New York Times, The Huffington Post, Fast Company, Fortune, and Politico. Greg’s main purpose is to help people and teams discover what drives success and what doesn’t. McKeown thrives off of challenging conventional wisdom and focuses on what you really need in order to be successful. Mistake-free living is not something we should be interested in, either for us or our children. Honesty, humility, and leadership are the key elements that allow us to come back from our mistakes and better ourselves so that we can strengthen our relationships. Our children learn from our actions, so if we make mistakes and recover quickly from them, they learn how to do the same.  Greg is a huge proponent of gratitude. He talks about following a complaining statement with a statement of gratitude; this can make a vast difference in mindset. Mindset is the key to going from a chore, to a habit, to a ritual. These three things are how we can achieve a state of effortlessness in our lives.  For the show notes and exclusive links mentioned in this episode go to https://gooddadproject.com/effortless/ ———— Join the Free Dad Edge Facebook Group at gooddadproject.com/group.

Feel Better, Live More with Dr Rangan Chatterjee

We’ve been conditioned to believe that the path to success is paved with relentless work. The more important the goal, the harder we have to grind. That if we aren’t perpetually exhausted, we’re not doing enough. Now, working hard is more exhausting than ever and many of us are stuck in an endless loop of “Zoom, eat, sleep, repeat” and we’re often working twice as hard to achieve half as much.This week, I’m joined by writer, speaker and podcast host, Greg McKeown who believes that getting ahead doesn’t have to be as hard as we make it. In his new book, Effortless: Make It Easier To Do What Matters Most, Greg explains that no matter what challenges or obstacles we face, there is a better way: instead of pushing ourselves harder, we can find an easier path. And that it's absolutely vital that we find it so that we can fulfil the most important missions of our lives.This conversation is full of relatable anecdotes and actionable advice for making the most essential activities in your life the easiest ones, so you can achieve the results you want, without burning out. There is so much freedom to be gained from Greg’s advice and I’m sure your life will be better for hearing it.Thanks to our sponsors:http://www.vivobarefoot.com/uk/livemorehttp://www.athleticgreens.com/livemoreShow notes available at https://drchatterjee.com/183Follow me on instagram.com/drchatterjee/Follow me on facebook.com/DrChatterjee/Follow me on twitter.com/drchatterjeeukDISCLAIMER: The content in the podcast and on this webpage is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
