Rank #2: Episode 43: What Successful People Do: before breakfast, at work, and on the weekend with Laura Vanderkam – BTTDL043

Podcast cover
Read more

Laura Vanderkam is a nationally recognized writer who questions the status quo and helps her readers rediscover their true passions and beliefs in pursuit of more meaningful lives.

Covered in this episode:

The first step to a makeover of your time is to keep track of how you are spending their time. - @LVanderkamClick To Tweet
Mornings don’t occur in isolation. What we do in our mornings has an effect on the rest of the day. - @LVanderkamClick To Tweet
You’re not going to get out of bed early for something that you don’t want to do. - @LVanderkamClick To Tweet
Every time we think we’re multitasking, we’re just inefficiently mono-tasking. - @LVanderkamClick To Tweet
When we’re doing work that we find important and meaningful our inboxes are naturally less attractive. - @LVanderkamClick To Tweet

  • Ask yourself: “What would make this a great work day? At the end of the day, what would you have liked to have changed in the world that would have made it worth showing up?”
  • Part of embracing the mindset of mono-tasking is being being careful about our time. It’s about understanding that you want to do things that matter. If you’re finding that you want to do others things than what you are doing,  it may be that what you are doing isn’t important to you.

Make sure to tweet to Laura thanking her for what you learn from this episode.
