You Cannot MultiTask

Over the past 12 years, one of the things that I have been fortunate enough to learn out of necessity, combined with how the brain works, is ‘time management’.

 

Well, you see, time management is really a misnomer, how we use our time comes down to our energy.  And our energy comes down to our attention.

 

Too  many people think they can multitask, not realizing the tremendous amount of energy they waste switching back and forth between objects.

 

Think of it this way, if you were to run 100 yards straight away or run 100 yards, but broken up between 5 yards and back, ten times, kind of like a shuttle run; which one would be harder?

 

Metabolically it’s a no-brainer, the shuttle runs will tax you  much more, even though the total distance in the same. Your brain works the same way metabolically.  Starting is the hardest part of focus or exercise.  When you constantly start and stop, you are burning precious brain fuel.

 

Stop multitasking and focus on the 1 thing that you must do first.  Simple but effective.

Member of the Month: Craig Batten

When we offer certain 6-week contests like Ripped Dads, it happens that clients believe they are just coming for the 6-weeks.  And for some, that’s all they need.

 

But Craig, after seeing the changes he was making in those 6-weeks, knew he had to continue.

 

Yes, Newell Strength ‘costs’ a lot more than other places, but in today’s video, you  can see how Craig made the decision that this was an investment that had a better ROI than anything he has ever tried.

 

Keep inspiring Craig!  You can take a look here: https://youtu.be/9wu6hR3M7uc

The Inspiring Story of Gori

I cannot tell you how proud I am of this man.

 

He came in to Newell Strength and the first time around, he didn’t succeed.

 

He came again, after a humiliating life experience and that was all the fuel for the fire that he needed.

 

In today’s episode, I talk about the remarkable turnaround this man has made in his life, let his fire light your torch today.  You can take a listen here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2019/12/02/The-Inspiring-Story-of-Gori

Mindset Monday: One Thing to Kill Overwhelm

I can remember the day, 9 and a half years ago.

 

I went into my Principal’s office for some advice.  I just needed someone to listen.

 

I had a laundry list of things to do, my thesis for my master’s, I was getting ready to open the first facility for Newell Strength and the list went on.

 

There were way too many things and BIG things, that I became frozen.  Totally not like me, but it happens to me from time to time just as it does to you.

 

The thing with overwhelm is that we are focusing on  multiple things at once.

 

We can only do 1 thing at a time though.  Multi-tasking is a myth I will blow up in another email this week.

 

So, how do we gain clarity on that one thing?  You put pen to paper.  Writing and journaling is one of the best things we can do for clarity, vision and emotional health.

 

When we put pen to paper, we bring logic and the human brain back to the table and we slow down.  We quiet the ‘noise’, the headtrash as my good friend Vince calls it.

 

Give it a try, take out a pen tonight and start to write.  Aim for a paragraph and see what happens.

The Mysterious Rice in the Salt Shaker

A few weeks ago, Devon told me that she was putting some salt into the boy’s bedroom diffuser and rice kept getting in there somehow.

 

I chuckled, because I had been putting rice into the salt shaker since it gets very humid back near the creek where we live and the salt gets clumpy.

 

It’s an old restaurant trick.

 

Devon’s mystery was solved.  Surely she knew that rice couldnt’ spontaneously appear out of nothing, right?

It’s no different than thinking muscle weighs more than fat (they weigh the same, a pound is a pound) or that thinking you can turn your body fat into muscle.

 

Pick the main goal, building muscle or losing weight, and focus on that until you  get to where you are happy and then address the other side of the coin….

Member Showcase: From Nervous to SuperWoman

I remember the very first time that Linda walked in to Newell Strength.

 

She happened to come by during a very busy athlete training session, which meant there were primarily big, strong dudes everywhere.  Add to the fact that Newell Strength is in a warehouse and she simply couldn’t get her head around this place being a fit for her.

 

She had to think about it.  However, Coach Dana reached out and was able to calm her fears and get her to commit to just 30-days.

 

Welp, that was 3 years ago.  Linda is one of the great success stories of Newell Strength.  She feels better, has lost a ton of weight and has become an important part of the Newell Strength community.

 

Here Linda tells you in her own words why you should never judge a book by its cover: https://youtu.be/9NO_3C8gv9M

The Circle of B.S.

Unfortunately, the fitness industry is loaded with ‘fake fitness experts’.  I’d say 99/100 fitness professionals fall into this category.

 

Lucky for you, the Coaches at NS are your fiduciary fitness experts, always learning and acting with your best health in mind.

In today’s episode, I talk about how the circle of BS starts in fitness and faulty advice and what you need to watch out for.

 

If you don’t deeply know the truth of a concept, you will always be reliant on an outside source.

Mindset Monday: Where Your Attention Goes

A few weeks back, I scheduled the next in line seminar of our heart health series that is proving to be quite popular.

 

The date was to be January 10th.  Dr. Andrey and I were off and running.

 

I shared the date with Mike, my good friend and our head trainer and he informed me he wouldn’t be able to make it.

 

What?!

 

Turns out, he is getting married on the 11th and the rehearsal dinner is on the 10th.  And I knew this, because I am in the wedding party!

 

But, as humans, we tend to give what’s front and center of our attention at the moment more significance and importance.

 

Nonetheless, the date is switched to the 17th, stay tuned on that.

 

Remember, where your attention goes, energy flows and results will follow.

Amazing Case of Mistaken Identity

2 weeks ago, I was doing a quick Cost-Co trip for the party Newell Strength was having at the winery the following night.

 

When I got in line, this dude Chuck came over to help load up my times.

 

I asked him for a box and he said, ‘For you, anything buddy’.

 

This wasn’t the first time he came over to seek me out.  We always make small talk and he tells me about his time in the state pen.  Nice guy though.

 

Anyhow, he says to the clerk, Melanie, ‘You know who this guy is, right?  (Pause) This is so and so’s grandson, you know, the CEO of CostCo…’

 

And he wasn’t joking.  Now it all made sense.

 

I had to do a double take as they both sized me up and I rolled with it.  Why not right?!

 

So how’s this relate to you?

 

Have you been feeling like a stranger in your own body, knowing that you want to make a physical transformation but you don’t know where to begin?

 

Knowing that somewhere under the extra weight, is the slim, trim, old you?

 

Know that you can regain that, if you just take the first step (remember, it’s not the distance that is the hardest, it’s just the first step that’s the hardest).

 

In the meantime, I will continue to pretend to be the CEOs grandson:)
