Schedules of the Less Famous 1% Rich, and You

How are life and business treating you, today? I hope, in both, you spend time with those who encourage you to fly. I want to reiterate what this title states, in case you've missed it. You don't have to have extreme publicity to become successful - whether in wealth, health or time. With that clear, whether you're an introvert who thrives on silent success or the prince(ss) of popularity who feeds on fame, there's a schedule that works with Your energy. On either end of the spectrum, let's celebrate You. I hope to continue to encourage you, here. 

Why Not You? How do You work?

Warren Buffet talks about why the most productive (and wealthiest) people have empty schedules. An executive client of mine works and plays hard, with 8-10 weeks vacation - he and his peers all do this - I agree. Jason Fried gave a tap on the wrist reminding that "no sleep" is not brag-worthy. People laugh, but Tom Ferriss' 4-Hour Work week sales keep skyrocketing. Why? Because the wise among us have realized that Henry Ford's 8-hour workday does not work for the Age of Thought. How Liberating!

You have optimal productivity when you give yourself permission (i.e. guilt-free) to step back when you're less productive. I talk about "your feasible schedule" and "how your natural rhythm feeds productivity"Still, it all falls flat if, within yourself or in talking to others, you have to Defend down time, OR you feel Guilty about it. Self care isn't about rebellion - so you have nothing to defend - it's about being healthier and productive for a longer time... for yourself, your family and those who rely on you. Isn't it?

What do You need? Why not take it?

More inspiration from Warren BuffetJason Fried, on health & environment, and where Henry Ford's 8-hour day falls short. P.S. Kudos to these men who get it! Ladies. I invite you to do it too.

(2016-Aug-18) On paper, my career began in 2001, spans Successiory (2009), my MBA from the Schulich School of Business (2010), two countries and several industries, including business strategy, social media consulting, environmental and engineering consulting, higher education and more (see LinkedIn). 

In 2015, I was nominated for Canadian Association of Marketing Professionals (CAMP) Awards,Entrepreneur of the Year and became an bestseller on August 9th 2015. I spoke at 12 events in 2015 alone, including several GroYourBiz Advisory Boards, Bank of Montreal (paid), Iler Campbell’s Tools Conference and Toronto Public Libraries’ Small Business (sometimes paid) series. I think I love speaking!

On a personal note, I'm an MBA, entrepreneur, millennial, dancer, author and so much more yet, like you, I don't fit the stereotypes. After years of workaholism and the health and relationship losses that go with that lifestyle, I've stopped 'paying lip service' to terms like authenticity, self care and sustainability. My health scare pushed me into living them. Here's hoping I can inspire you to live and work better without learning the hard way. Welcome. Still curious? More here...
