“Keep The Batteries Charged” with Anne Grady

We give a lot of lip service to taking care of yourself. For example, if your battery on your phone was down to 10% what would you do? You would quickly charge it. But we don’t have a charging station for ourselves. If we are not healthy, if we’re not well mentally, physically and emotionally, we cannot be a source of support and strength for others and we can’t be effective.

“Boost Your EQ” with Anne Grady

Your EQ, or emotional quotient is very different from your IQ. It’s a way to measure your level emotional intelligence. Think about all of the characteristics of a phenomenal friend, leader, or confidant, then think about the traits of a horrible one. What you’ll probably realize is none of their characteristics has anything to do with the person’s intelligence, but rather their emotional intelligence. Your IQ is important because it’s the reason we get into school, finish school, get a job, etc.  But it’s your emotional intelligence that is more likely to dictate your success than any other factor. Your EQ is your ability to understand your strengths, weaknesses, triggers, and blind spots, and be able to empathize with others and understand their emotional state. More importantly, it’s the ability to use that information to guide the way you act and behave.

“Plug the Leaks” with Anne Grady

Author Anne Grady says you don’t lose time generally in huge chunks, we don’t look up and 2 hours have gone by. Instead, we look up and 15 minutes have elapsed, and if we are not careful, that time adds up. It’s like springing a leak, it’s not going to sink your boat all at once but eventually it gets pretty difficult to cover-up all the holes. It’s important to become very deliberate about the small chunks of your time you’re wasting, and how you can focus your time and attention.

“Forget the Idea of Balance” with Anne Grady

Author Anne Grady says the idea of “balance” is antiquated. It was first introduced in the 18th and 19th centuries when people were working 16 hours a day, six days a week. Hopefully, our life has changed (if you are working that much it’s time to rethink some things.) Our goal should not be to be balanced. Our goal should be to identify our priorities, spend time focusing on those priorities, and not to feel guilty about doing so.

“Now Matters” with Peter Voogd

Bestselling author Peter Voogd talks about why NOW matters in attaining the success you’ve dreamed of. The #1 reason people aren’t achieving the success they’re truly capable of is they’ve never told themselves NOW matters. This ‘someday’ mentality is killing so many dreams and goals. In fact, Peter puts it near the top of the list of reasons why our society is filled with regret, frustration, stress, and unfulfilled potential. Unfortunately a lot of people live on "Someday Isle." “Someday I'll be successful…" Get off the "Someday I'll" island. Expect more for yourself and understand that if you want to be successful it starts with urgency and understanding now matters more than ever.

“Shift Your Circle of Influence” with Peter Voogd

Bestselling author Peter Voogd talks about why you must shift your circle of influence in order to reach the level of success you want. Having the proper circle of influence elevates your standards, while having the wrong circle of influence will pull you away from your ultimate goals in life. As difficult as it sounds, the reality is you have to evaluate those with whom you surround yourself, and if you want to elevate your income then you must elevate who you associate with.

“The Emotions of Time Management” with Rory Vaden

Rory Vaden says everything you know about time management is wrong. Time management isn't logical, it's emotional. It's not about fitting more in and doing more, or doing less, it's about accomplishing results that matter to you. It's about a life of significance, spending my life doing things today that will really matter tomorrow.

“Become a Time Multiplier” with Rory Vaden

Rory Vaden talks about the problem with most time management strategies…that prioritizing doesn't create more time. You can't solve today's time management problems with yesterday's time management thinking. The old way of thinking only fosters an inappropriate amount of weight on urgency - what matters now - which then puts us in a state of stress from the start. Rory introduces a new, innovative concept of learning how to “multiply your time” today, and create even more time for you tomorrow.

“Overcoming “One Day” Syndrome” with Alison Kero

Professional organizer Alison Kero talks about what tends to keep us stuck when we're trying to become more organized, and what we can do to move past the indecisiveness. For example: keeping something you're never going to use, thinking that "one day" it might come in handy, which then gives you permission to make no real decisions.
