E0015 - Accomplish Everything With Mini Habits - Stephen Guise (S0001)

When I decided to start exercising consistently 10 years ago, this is what actually happened: I tried "getting motivated." It worked sometimes. I tried setting audacious big goals. I almost always failed them. I tried to make changes last. They didn't. Like most people who try to change and fail, I assumed that I was the problem. Then one afternoon—after another failed attempt to get motivated to exercise—I (accidentally) started my first mini habit. I initially committed to do one push-up, and it turned into a full workout. I was shocked. This "stupid idea" wasn't supposed to work. I was shocked again when my success with this strategy continued for months (and to this day). I had to consider that maybe I wasn't the problem in those 10 years of mediocre results. Maybe it was my prior strategies that were ineffective, despite being oft-repeated as "the way to change" in countless books and blogs. I was right. Is There A Scientific Explanation For This? As I sought understanding, I found a plethora of scientific studies that had answers, with nobody to interpret them correctly. Based on the science--which you'll find peppered throughout Mini Habits--we've been doing it all wrong. You can succeed without the guilt, intimidation, and repeated failure associated with such strategies as "getting motivated," New Year's Resolutions, or even "just doing it." In fact, you need to stop using those strategies if they aren't giving you great results. They don't work because they all require you to fight against your subconscious brain (a fight not easily won). It's only when you start playing by your brain's rules and taking your human limitations seriously--as mini habits show ...

Fascinated by the leaders who make impact in the world, companies and politicians with the capacity to inspire, Simon Sinek has discovered some remarkable patterns in how they think, act and communicate. Described as "a visionary thinker with a rare intellect," Sinek has devoted his professional life to help advance a vision of the world that does not yet exist; a world in which the vast majority of people wake up every single morning inspired, feel safe wherever they are and end the day fulfilled by the work that they do. ...

E0026 - A More Human Approach to Productivity (S0002)

Chris Bailey has been obsessed with the subject of productivity for more than a decade. In this talk, he argues that productivity doesn't have to feel cold and corporate—and that it’s possible to get more done every day without hating the process. Drawing from a decade's worth of research, as well as his yearlong productivity project, Chris argues that the best way to become more productive is to manage our time, attention, and energy better. In addition to sharing this more human approach to productivity, Chris concludes by providing 5 practical ways we can all get more done every day. Chris has experimented with every productivity technique under the sun including what it’s like to live like a caveman! His book "The Productivity Project" is based on his innovative research and underlines the claim that Chris might be the most productive man you’d ever hope to meet. When Chris graduated from University, he received two full-time job offers but decided to decline them both to dedicate a full year of his life to exploring his passion: productivity. Over the past decade, his experimentation continued and his work has received national and international media attention from The New York Times, Fortune, Fast Company, Lifehacker, New York Magazine, and countless others. Every month his work is read by about 200,000 people from almost every country around the world. Y ...
