We may be busy all day, but we may not always be productive, right?

  • So, it's important to prioritize tasks without becoming sidetracked by less important tasks to complete them swiftly.

[00:11:00] “There's a chart called The Four Quadrants by Stephen Covey. The Eisenhower Box is another name for it. And that's where you have these quadrants of what's urgent and important, and you're breaking it down and trying to get away from the less urgent and move on to the things that are essential but not urgent.  So, when you're looking at that, there's an adage that says, "If you can do it in two minutes, do it now." That was something I used to believe as well,” says Blaine Oelkers.

It makes a huge difference not to let other people decide how you schedule your time. That was a game-changer for Blaine a few years ago.

[00:15:00] “One of the most beneficial things you can do is to get to know yourself and then schedule time with yourself. And don't allow anyone to get in the way of it.”

Keep a check on your daily practices.

“If you check your emails first thing in the morning, you will become irritated and damaged in the long run.”

[00:24:00] “My favorite way to start the day is to take a mental shower in the morning. The majority of people shower every day, but the first thing I like to do after waking up is Meditate- to clear my mind. Sure, I enjoy a ten-minute shower, but guess what, I'll do it even if I only have one minute or three,” says Blaine Oelkers.

Do you have a favorite meditation app for a mind-clearing session? (Recommendations)

[00:25:00] I think these are the top three apps for mindfulness: Headspace, Calm, and Insight Timer (which is a free one, and then there are the premium versions),” says Blaine Oelkers.

“The mind shower has several benefits There are certain physical benefits, such as feeling calmer, less agitated, and like you've reset yourself, your blood pressure normalizes, so it offers numerous health benefits,” he further adds.

[00:29:00] “At the end of a mind shower, I begin to wonder, "OK, what's most important this day" As a result, I choose a word each year. This year my word is Vital, so when I get up in the morning, I look at my schedule and ask myself, "What's vital today" If I only accomplished one thing today, I would consider that a successful day,” Blaine Oelkers.
