Distractions and depressions are a normal part of a productive person's life.
A blog reader of mine recently asked:
"Some weeks I'm pumped, focused, energetic, and productive. Life is good and I am checking off my goals one by one. Then I have a week when it feels like I get nothing done. I have no energy or focus. I'm watching TV, reading the news, and sleeping in. What do I do? How do I get consistent?"
Have you ever lost your focus and wondered, “How can I get it back?” That's what today's episode is all about.

To this day the sound of velcro tearing on a golf glove draws me to attention and puts me in a zone.
Why is that? Well, in a way, that's what today's episode is all about.
Today, I'll share with you six ways to help you get in the zone.
What is "the zone" exactly? Perhaps in 2014 terminology, we could call it a "flow state" or just "focused."
I've always liked the phrase "in the zone" though because it conjures up an image of being in a physical and mental place (the zone) that I can actually go to.
So, how do you get "in the zone?" Listen below to today's episode to find out the six strategies and techniques I use to get in the zone and really focus.

Competition is a powerful fuel for motivation.
Competition helps us to get and stay motivated. It helps us generate new energy when we are stagnated.
Let’s face it, most of us are competitive to some extent. We are competitive with each other, with ourselves, with time. If we are playing a sport, I want to beat you, plain and simple. Sure, I will enjoy the game either way, but the fact is I will get more enjoyment out of it if I win.
Today, we’re going to discuss how competition can be the fuel to drive you to success.
PLUS, fives ways that competition pushes you to the next level in business and five ways you can use competition in your personal life.

Have you ever found yourself in a funk and not been able to get out, no matter what you do?

It's easy to get into a funk. But how do you get yourself out of it?

What are your passions?
If you read my recent post, Do You Even Know What Your True Dreams Are?, you know what I am truly asking. Even if you didn’t, you still know what I mean on some level. What wakes you up in the morning. What keeps you up at night? What has always fascinated you? What questions do you want answered?
Now, how can you make money from those passions? That’s what today’s episode is about.
Today, I interview former rockstar (seriously, he toured the country in a rock band) A.J. Amyx.
We discuss his background, what it was like to give up is identity as a rockstar and trade it for something so much greater, and how to get paid for your passions.
Aj Amyx is the Creator’s Mentor, Host of AMYXtv and founder of the Passionpreneur Academy.
Some people say he’s a business coach, smart marketer, consultant, brother or a free spirit. At his core, he just wants to help people get paid from their passions and make a difference in the world – since that is what he gets to do everyday.

I've made a ton of mistakes as a leader. Just ask anyone I have ever led…or read some of my previous posts here.
Ask my wife, my co-workers, my direct reports, my business partners, and bosses. You might want to block off a week or four to do it though.
But I made one big mistake that I didn’t even realize until now. One that led to almost every other mistake I made.

Team members at work want the same things we all want in every aspect of life.
I want to be trusted. I want my boss to believe in me and trust my judgment.
Replace the word “boss” with “spouse” or “parents” and the sentence above is still true. The leader-team member relationship is no different from any other relationship.
I want to control my own destiny. I want to have a voice in my career.
Replace the word “career” with “marriage” or “education” and the sentence is still true. We all want a sense of control and we all want a voice.
We’re continuing the series on the 8 Things Your Team REALLY Wants with part two today, #5 through #8.
