    Take a moment and pay attention to what you’re doing right now. Do you have Slack open while you’re composing an email? Are you scrolling through social media while you’re listening to this episode? One of the most frequent questions I get asked is how do I maintain my focus in a world full of distractions.

  • How can you triple your time-management capacity?

    We’ve all had days where time seems to fly. Or a morning where we’ve gotten more done in a few hours than the last two weeks combined. But time isn’t elusive and the one thing all super productive individuals have in common is that they’ve learned not just how to control their time but maximize it.

    To talk about this important topic, I’m thrilled to have Ed Mylett on our show today. Ed is an entrepreneur, keynote speaker, philanthropist, podcast host, and best-selling author of #Max Out Your Life: Strategies for Becoming an Elite Performer and The Power of One More: The Ultimate Guide to Happiness and Success.

As technology progresses, your twenty-four hours isn’t the same as it was one hundred years ago. Listen in, as Ed talks about how to shift your time-management perspective and unlock limitless productivity.

  • How do you become a master of your own behaviors and habits?

    All habits begin with small, simple steps. That’s why I break down my morning routine into bite-sized actions and periodically turn them into easy challenges for you to do every day. One tiny action can compound into big change.

    This week’s Kwik Challenge is to stay hydrated. You can lose up to a pound of water while you sleep, which means you’re likely dehydrated when you wake up. Drinking water is vital for brain and body health—especially as we head into peak summer heat.

    Change doesn’t have to be difficult. I often talk about how the treasures of your life are hidden in your daily routine, and you can uncover them by making small adjustments to your behaviors. Listen in, as I go over the six benefits for staying hydrated and give you some Kwik tips on how to incorporate more water into your daily routine.

  • How do you remember your seed phrase for your crypto wallet—or any password—easily and effortlessly?

    Have you ever come up with a password, PIN number, or code only to forget it when you need it most? Or maybe you haven’t forgotten it, but you worry that you will. We live in a technological world, where online security is vital in ensuring your personal, professional, and financial information stays safe.

    Today, I want to walk you through a memory exercise to help you remember lists in sequential order. When it comes to certain things—like your crypto seed phrase—the specific order is key. This method is designed to help you learn any series of words, events, places, and more.

    I believe the two most costly words in life are “I forgot”. Every time you forget something, you lose time, productivity, relationships, and potentially wealth. Even if you don’t have a password or phrase you need to memorize, this exercise is a great way to stretch your memory muscles. Listen in, as I teach you a fun and effective technique to recall twelve random words.

  • How do you turn burnout into your personal breakthrough?

    When you’re passionate about something, it’s common to jump in with both feet. You become obsessed with your project—going all in, all the time. But that often leads to a lot of stress, which can turn your energized flame into ashes, and induce a state of burnout.

    This is a topic I’m really passionate about and I’m excited to have Jenna Kutcher on our show today. Jenna is a mother, an entrepreneur, and host of the top-rated podcast, Goal Digger. She’s also author of her brand-new book, How Are You, Really?: Living Your Truth One Answer at a Time.

  • How do you breathe during stressful times?

    That might seem like a strange question. After all, breathing is something we do automatically. But how you breathe can change the physiological response you have to a situation. Practicing breathwork can help you experience stress safely so that you can learn to modulate your breath during any scenario life throws at you.

    To talk more about this important topic, I’m happy to have Chuck McGee III on our show today. Chuck is a breathwork instructor who has dedicated his life to helping people discover the power conscious breathwork can have on their lives and health.

  • What is the best approach for treating and preventing Alzheimer’s Disease?

    After my traumatic brain injury, my grandmother became my primary caregiver because my parents had to work multiple jobs. From a young age, I watched her struggle with Alzheimer’s, and I saw firsthand how devastating this disease is. It’s why I’m so passionate about brain health and work with leading experts in their mission to understand, treat, and prevent Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases.

  • How do you transform the life of your child with special needs?

  • How do you begin your day to jumpstart your brain for greater productivity and peace of mind? One of the most consistent questions I get from our community is how I start my day. I believe that if you can win the morning, you can win the day. And it all starts by establishing a set of routines and habits that create positive momentum to move you forward.
    In today’s episode, I’m going to walk you through some of the habits I’ve created that make up my ideal morning. Notice how I said ideal. My goal is to do as many things as possible, but keep in mind that every morning is different. The important thing is to start the day with self-love and self-care, so remember to be kind to yourself as you work towards change.
    Creating a morning routine takes advantage of the science of momentum, which helps you avoid decision fatigue. Instead of having to make constant choices, you let your routine generate energy to carry you through your day. If you want to learn how to begin each morning with clarity, vision, and direction, this episode is for you.

  • How do you remember more of what you read?

    Have you ever read a page in a book and forgot what you were reading? And even if you go back and reread the page, you still can’t remember?

  • What if you were one action away from achieving your goals and changing your life?

    You already know that mindset is the beginning of everything. But limiting beliefs can be tricky to identify, and they often work to subconsciously hold you back by making you feel overwhelmed and unprepared as you make progress. And sometimes all you need to do to overcome these obstacles is one more thing.

    To talk about this powerful mindset, I’m thrilled to have Ed Mylett on our show today. Ed is an entrepreneur, keynote speaker, philanthropist, podcast host, and best-selling author of #Max Out Your Life: Strategies for Becoming an Elite Performer.

  • How do you unleash radical confidence?

    Confidence is a subject that comes up a lot in our community and there’s a misconception that it means you no longer have doubt, fear, or insecurities. But building self-assurance doesn’t mean you get rid of those feelings. Instead, it’s a series of steps you take to overcome these internal struggles.

    To talk more on this subject, I’m delighted to have Lisa Bilyeu on our show today. Lisa is cofounder of Quest Nutrition, cofounder and President of Impact Theory, and host of Women of Impact show. She’s also the author of the brand-new book, Radical Confidence: 10 No-BS Lessons on Becoming the Hero of Your Own Life, where she shares exactly how radical and life-changing self-empowerment can be.

  • How do you train your attention and stop your mind from wandering in only twelve minutes a day?

    Maintaining your attention and focus in a world filled with distractions can be very difficult. The constant disruption of notifications can start to feel like you don’t have ownership over your own mind. But solutions like avoiding technology for periods of time rely on external intervention rather than giving you control over your ability to concentrate.

    To go in-depth on this topic, I’m thrilled to have Dr. Amishi Jha on the show today. Dr. Jha is a neuroscientist and professor of psychology at the University of Miami. She’s also the author of the bestselling book, Peak Mind: Find Your Focus, Own Your Attention, Invest 12 Minutes a Day. Packed with over fifteen years of research, her book gives you practical steps on how to use mindfulness training to regain your ability to be present in any situation—in only twelve minutes a day.

    Technology is a necessity in the modern world. Instead of removing access to digital devices, you can train your attention to be distraction-proof. Listen in, as Dr. Jha gives you actionable steps to start training your focus, notice where your attention is at any given time, and learn how to redirect to get back on track.

  • Is setting goals the best way to unlock your true potential?

    We talk a lot about the importance of goal setting and how to set smart goals. But sometimes fear of failure can create unintentional limits within your goals, and that can actually end up holding you back. What if there was a better way to look at your goals so that you don’t just reach them, but achieve so much more?

    I’m thrilled to have Emmanuel Acho on our show today to talk more in-depth about this topic. Emmanuel is a former NFL player who earned his Master’s Degree in Sports Psychology during his off-seasons. He’s an Emmy Award-Winning Fox Sports Analyst, host of an acclaimed video series, and author of the New York Times instant bestseller, Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man. Emmanuel’s newest book, Illogical: Saying Yes to a Life Without Limits, breaks down how to defy logic so that you can dream bigger and break through your limitations.

    Fear of failure often fills the space between where you currently are and where you want to be. To overcome that fear, you have to redirect your perspective of failure by letting go of logic so you can keep pushing yourself beyond what conventional wisdom says is possible. If you live in a world where you compare yourself to a standard, this episode is for you.

  • How do you work smarter and not harder?

    If you’re like the rest of us, you want to become more efficient by working smarter—not just harder. You already know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed with long to-do lists, stressful demands, and the pressure of not having enough time. This burden can feel even heavier when all of these tasks feel high-priority and can’t be ignored.

    Today, I want to talk about how to focus on the things that matter the most so that you can exert the same amount of effort but yield the highest possible rewards.

    When you’re weighed down with an endless list of tasks, it can feel like you’re being held back and aren’t able to pursue the things you really want to do. Even worse, it can lead to burnout. So if you’re struggling to identify how to apply your efforts to produce maximum results, this episode is for you.

  • How do you go from stressed to motivated?

    When you’re under pressure, you may not look beyond today’s circumstances for what’s causing your stress. But the truth is, how you react to challenging situations now is directly tied to events you’ve already faced. The key to overcoming that stress is figuring out how your present feelings are being influenced by your past.

    I’m thrilled to have Dr. Don Wood on the show today. Dr. Wood is a clinical psychologist and founder of the Inspired Performance Institute. After years of research, he created the TIPP method as a holistic approach to heal the effects of trauma on the body and mind, and is the author of You Must Be Out of Your Mind: We All Need A Reboot and Emotional Concussions: Understanding How Our Nervous System is Affected By Events and Experiences.

    We all have stress on a day-to-day basis, but how well you handle today’s stress depends on how you managed your earlier stress. Fear and stress are signposts your mind has created based on these past experiences and how you coped then will influence your stress levels in the current situation. Listen in as Dr. Wood shares insights into recognizing these patterns and gives you actionable steps so you can transform the stress in your life into motivation.

  • What is the power of a having bittersweet outlook?

    If you’re like most people, you’ve probably felt the pressure to always look on the bright side and act happy no matter what. While there is a place for optimism and positivity, you may actually be doing yourself a terrible disservice by burying your sad and melancholy feelings all the time.

    To explore this topic deeper, I’m thrilled to have bestselling author Susan Cain on our show today. Susan is the author of "QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking" and "Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts." Through her powerful TED talk, she has helped millions of introverts feel seen and understood. In her latest book, "Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole," she discovered that sadness and melancholy are key to achieving transcendence and feeling connected to others.

    Susan’s journey began by wanting to understand why people are drawn to rainy days and sad songs. She discovered that tapping into those bittersweet emotions can help you open your heart and see the world through new eyes. Listen in as Susan explains how finding beauty in sorrow, heartache, and longing can help you feel less alone.

  • How do you recover from COVID brain?

    Most people are familiar with the physical symptoms of COVID, but it also affects the brain. Things like memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and loss of taste and smell can last much longer than the initial infection. With more information emerging every day, it can start to feel overwhelming and increase your overall stress. But there are actionable steps you can implement in your daily lifestyle to reduce these symptoms and maintain your physical and brain health.

    To go more in depth on this topic, we’re excited to have Dr. Daniel Amen back on our show. Dr. Amen is a physician, double-board certified psychiatrist, and founder of Amen Clinics and BrainMD. He’s a twelve-time New York Time bestselling author, including his latest book "You, Happier: The 7 Neuroscience Secrets of Feeling Good Based on Your Brain Type."

    As a physician and psychiatrist, Dr. Amen saw first-hand the emotional and mental impact COVID had on his patients. By using the over 200,000 brain scans in his clinic, he developed several practical recommendations to help you reduce COVID-related inflammation and maintain your overall brain health. If you or someone you know has been struggling with long-term COVID brain symptoms, this episode is for you.

    Please remember to consult a physician or other health practitioner before making any major decisions regarding your physical or mental health. This episode is not intended to treat or diagnose any medical conditions.
