One question I get asked a lot is how I'm able to get so much done. I sell products on Shopify, Amazon, have 50+ books, my podcast, work in a few niches, experiment with Twitter and Pinterest a lot, do coaching, develop software, etc... and more importantly, also have time for a life filled with travel, friends, and fun.

Today I thought I'd share my top 3 productivity tips with you. These are my biggest "bang for your buck" productivity habits.
Enjoy!

Tony Stubblebine is a very impressive guy. His company, Coach.me (formerly Lift) has been backed by Tony Robbins, Tim Ferriss, both co-founders of Twitter, and has hundreds of thousands of members.

We had such a great conversation that covered so much ground that I ended up breaking our talk up into 2 parts.

In Part 1 we go over:

- What the #1 biggest factor is when trying to reach goals

- What Tony says is the key to stress management

- How "priority framing" helps you get a lot more done every day

- The importance of meditation as a performance practice (not necessarily for spirituality, but for business)

- How to cope with a lack of motivation

...and a bit more about how Tony's been able to grow his business into the successful company it is today.

Today marks the 100th episode of A Better Life Podcast. And to switch it up, I’ve invited one of my favorite people on the planet, Kit Murray Maloney of O’Actually, to interview me!

Kit did a great job and asked me some awesome questions. Some of the things we cover are:

– The intention behind A Better Life podcast and why it means so much to me

– How you can choose to find breakthroughs even when you feel powerless

– The importance of establishing boundaries when it comes to your time and generosity

– My two-step process for moving away from misery towards courage

– Why you don’t need to ‘save’ people in your life (and why it’s delusional to think you can)

…and a bit more about the power of asking for exactly what you need in the moment, no matter how indulgent it may seem.

This was a fun episode to record, and I’m so grateful for your listening and being a part of A Better Life.

I originally became very interested in learning how to incorporate more exercise into your day when I read how harmful sitting for 8 hours a day is, even if you spend an hour a day at the gym.

Since I learned about that, I’ve done all kinds of things to get in as much movement as possible. I’m proud to say that I now average walking 8 miles a day.

In this post I’m going to share exactly how I do that, plus how you can fit exercise into a packed-to-the-brim schedule.

#1: If you can get a treadmill desk, get one.

#2: Reward yourself with walks.

#3: Pace.
#4: Get a FitBit if you can.

#5: Do 7 minute workouts.

#6: Schedule your exercise classes. Bonus: tell your friends about them.

#7: Incorporate it into your morning routine.

Today's episode is slightly different from my usual podcasts. My guest today, Laura Yamin, is happily employed in a regular 9-5 job and doesn't want to be a full-time entrepreneur.

We talk about:

- How to get paid what you want to get paid (with practical action steps)

- Why you need to be clear about what you want

- How trusting your intuition can help you realize your dreams, no matter how much of a stretch they may seem

- Why job hunting is like "defense dating" and how you can find the cream of the crop

- Why healthy boundaries at work are a must and the key phrase to say in order to successfully set them

- The mindset shift you need to make updating your resume and talking with recruiters fun and empowering tasks

...and a bit more about the importance of learning to say "no" at least 5 times a day.
