135. How to Honor Your Time Blocks without Getting Distracted (Part 2)

Apr 19, 2018 | 0 comments

Have you ever blocked out time on your calendar for something that really mattered, and then life got in the way?   We know it happens to us, and has happened, at some point, to all of the 1,700 people who attended the keynote that we are sharing in this episode.  

This is part two of a two-part series on time blocking secrets. In part one, we discussed some of the changes you can make in your life to move forward on the road to mastery. In this episode, we answer questions about what people just like you are struggling with when it comes to time blocking.  

In this episode you will learn…

  • [2:45] How you can create an environment that supports your goals.
  • [14:45] Why saying yes to yourself first (and no to everyone else) will give you time to say yes to everyone else, later.
  • [23:30] How you can protect your time by setting expectations with the people around you.  

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

How will you endure the monotony of success?   We mentioned in the last episode that this is a road to mastery, and that means you have to adopt the mindset of a student. You have to take action to learn, every day, and every day you will fail – and you will make progress.   If you’d like support in taking the next step in your journey, consider joining the Living Your ONE Thing Community.
