Ep.52 | 5 Minute Drill | Zone In to Break Out

Busy is an excuse.

Took me 30+ years and a LOT of coaching to realize that. 

For some reason, being busy has become a badge of honor. 

In reality, it’s a right of passage…to BURNOUT.

The ultra-successful aren’t burned out…they’re bold when it comes to what goes on their calendar. It’s how they achieve BIG things.

In today’s 5-Minute Drill, I share a strategy that will help you get more of what you want done and eliminate all the BS causing chaos on your calendar…

So YOU can achieve BIG things.

CHAOS leads to CRISIS…


I know which one you prefer, so let’s get after it today.

  • #1: Download my template, then grab two pieces of paper (or create two Google Docs. Whatever you prefer.).
  • #2: On the one doc or piece of paper, create a list with four columns, labeled Sweet Spot, End Zone, Red Zone, No Zone. Put it to the side for a minute.
  • #3: On the other doc or piece of paper, title it “My activities” and think through and write down all the activities you complete throughout your typical day and week.
  • #4: With that list of activities in front of you, pick up Doc #1 (with your four columns containing the four Zones) and organize every activity you wrote down into one of the four Zones.
