Be productive, even when lazy….

Be productive, even when lazy….

In all of my training, healthy eating, reading and coaching clients, I've found one thing to give me the most powerful boost in energy.

I call this the 10 minute rule.

Here's the rule:

Go to work, for just 10 minutes, on a task you keep putting off

And this practice is what will help you improve the most, over time.

What do I mean by a task you keep putting off?

How to control your emotions.

How to control your emotions.

Not being in control of your emotions can have massive repercussions on your life.

Take, for example, the inability to manage your stress levels at work.

Say, somebody in your team does something wrong. Not catastrophic. But bad enough that you get reprimanded by your boss.

That will have a ripple effect in someone who is emotionally unstable. Leading them to feel MORE stress from their NORMAL workload later on that same day.

Sound familiar?

How to Know You’re Lying to Yourself 

How to Know You’re Lying to Yourself 

  • Keep setting goals - never look at them again, never mind hit them 

  • Sign up to a gym - never get off your arse and go train

  • Started at least one diet in the past 12 months - look the same if not worse

  • “like and share” motivational Facebook memes - don’t change your habits at all

  • Hate your life but share 1-2 social media posts per week showing you doing awesome shit

  • Understand meditation and mindfulness - but spend 3-5+ hrs per DAY on your phone (check the screen time app)

  • Know that massage and stretching is scientifically proven to improve aches & pains - choose to live in pain daily 

  • Go to bed early for a good night’s rest - Wake up and go on phone immediately

  • Buy the best gym kit and supplements around - don’t have basic sleep/food/training consistency

  • Want to be a role model for your kids - constantly use them as an excuse why you “don’t have time” to be healthy

  • Want to have your own personal trainer or coach - claim you “can’t afford” it then spend £200-500 per month on going out (clothes, meals, booze…add it up)

Why discomfort will save you

Why discomfort will save you

I believe a little discomfort will toughen you up

And being tougher means being happier

Reason is, we are wired for a challenge...

Not too long ago the human race struggled every day.

> water couldn't just be purchased in bottles whenever you pleased

> the next meal wasn't on-call, on-demand, contactless and delivered to your door

> you better be up early and grafting after food, water and shelter every day. Or the wilderness, wildlife or nearest enemy would kill you FAST

Sit obediently as your soul cries...

Sit obediently as your soul cries...

You collapse into the drivers seat, happy yet tired, with a soft ache in your stomach.

All week you've waited for this day, Friday, and a few moments of counting down the freedom.

This weekend is going to be different. You're determined of that. Hit the gym. Take up Spanish. Stop drinking alcohol. Take your family somewhere nice.

This is your time to step up and show the world who you really are. Enough of the corporate bullshit. Enough of the meetings. This is your moment.

You're driving home thinking of the possibilities.

Then it happens. You start to question yourself. If you were better. If you tried. What would they think? What would she say?

Suddenly, you feel your resolve weaken….

It's Monday, has the diet started?

It's Monday, has the diet started?

If not, don't worry - you're normal

Only 0.000001% of the population is out there instagramming their prepped meals

Most of us just can't do that

Here's why:

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
