Podcast Episode 12 – Happily Every After with Janet Parks

Janet Parks - Relationship Stay or Go Coach

Janet Parks

Warning!  This is a controversial episode that will make you really think.   But that’s a good thing, right?

In this episode I interview Janet Parks, a Stay or Go Relationship Coach. I don’t want to spoil it for you because you really do have to listen for yourself but suffice it to say that Janet and I agree on a lot but also disagree on a lot.

One thing that is absolutely certain is that we have to pay daily attention and care to our relationships or they’ll end.  In this interview Janet goes through her 5 steps for getting out of relationship limbo.  It’s a must listen!

 Business Tip of the Week

If you’re like me you are always looking for tools, tips and resources to make your business and personal life more fulfilling and effective.  I’m constantly listening, learning and trying new things.

In order to get more of “the right things” done, try this:  Chunk the project down into 1/2 hours segments of concentrated production time.  Wondering what I mean by “the right things?”  The right activities are those that will make you money and that you’ve been putting off.  Likely you are overwhelmed at the size of the project or fearful of the outcome.  But I have found that those 1/2 concentrated time periods really help to get things done and fast because you know you only have to concentrate for 1/2 hour.

Here are some tips:

1.  Really commit to to taking a break after the 1/2 hour time period.  The break actually helps you to be more productive when you return to this or another project.  But don’t take too long of a break.  Maybe go get  a glass of water or take a walk around the office.  Take enough of a break, about 5 minutes, to clear your head, but not so much that you are breaking more than you are working.  🙂

2.  Eliminate all distractions for that 1/2 hour.  That means, no email, no social media, no phone calls, etc…  Just concentrate all of your attention and intention on the project at hand.  You’ll be amazed at how much you can get done when you do that.  Plus, it is so much less stressful to know that you’ll be able to check email or whatever after the 1/2 hour up.

3.  Try this for a week.  This work method takes getting used to but if you try this I think you’ll find it very useful and your productivity will soar.

I use a simple online timer.  Just click here to see the one that I use.  But you can use any old timer you want.    Go ahead and google online timer, there are thousands.  An egg timer works well too.  Your phone might even have an app.  Anyhow, just use whatever timer you like best.

Let me know if you try this and if it has worked for you.
