Sometimes we need a little down-time to just relax, but this isn't the opportunity to fill your mind with worthless garbage
I refer to most mainstream television as "junk food for the brain" because, just like junk food, it fills you up but has very little nutritional value. Television will fill your mind but it has no beneficial value. It's like cotton candy, a lot of fluff that tastes great in the moment, but it brings nothing of substance.
Keep in mind, there's very little wrong with treating yourself to a little guilty pleasure once in a while, as long as it's not the norm. I have people in my life who's daily routine involves several hours worth of junk television. They've litterally run-off a list of TV shows ... "Do you watch this... how about this... or this?" They're amazed when I say "no, no, no." I just don't make it a practice to mentally ingest that. But, I do love to sit and relax and be entertained by other peoples amazing creativity.
Here is my list of 4 TV shows which are incredibly entertaining but also have some redemptive qualities to them. I hope you'll take a look at some of them.
The Profit with Marcus Lemonis
This is probably my favorite TV show.
Marcus Lemonis is the CEO of Camping World, but now he’s the part owner of numerous small and medium sizes businesses around the country, because of this television show.
He heads out to struggling businesses and helps them become profitable, by using his business savvy and industry know-how. He can usually come in and see exactly what's wrong with a business. In fact, I find that in most cases, just about anybody could see what's wrong, but when you're in the middle of it all, it's sometimes difficult to figure out.
One of the things I love about Marcus is that he doesn’t take any crap from anyone. There is plenty of words bleeped out in just about every episode. He will let an owner know when they're making a mistake or being dishonest with him.
You will learn SO much about running a business and the three elements Marcus says are vital to business success, People, Product and Process.
He’s huge on getting the right people into place and treating them incredibly well. Marcus treats the right people incredibly well, rewarding them verbally as wel as monetarily when it's justified.
The product has to be great and you have to focus on the right product, not EVERY potential product. That’s a huge lesson. I've seen so many businesses which have expanded beyond their core expertise and ended up losing so much money on the fringe items, it eats into the profit of that core.
The process has to be streamlined and efficient as well. He’s a master at finding opportunities to become more efficient while raising quality as well. The process is vital.
The Profit is available on CNBC.
You’ve probably seen the Shark Tank. It’s on prime time TV on ABC. In fact, you can head over to ABC.com and stream previous episodes any time you'd like. I'm a huge fan of "on demand" televisions. That puts me in control of my entertainment schedule.
Multi-millionaire and even billionaires sit as “Sharks” while start-ups present their business and ask the Sharks to invest. They ask for a specific amount and in return offer a chunk of the business. But it's very rare for someone to get exactly what they've asked for from the sharks. After all, they're sharks...
The Sharks are
Mark Cuban - Dallas Mavericks owner
Lori Greiner - Queen of QVC
Barbara Corcoran - Real Estate mogul
Daymond John - Started FUBU
Robert Herjavec - I mentioned him in episode 114 - Cyber Security firm
Kevin O’Leary - Mr. Wonderful - all about making money. Made his fortune on software for kids.
You’ll learn so much about what it takes to develop a product that’s attractive to investors. They ask all the questions about finances and patents and marketability.
It's not just business though, the sharks will sometimes key in on someone who has such a tremendous passion and partner with them. They know that passion is something you can't teach to someone, but all the other business stuff, they can. It's a great lesson. But it's not JUST passion.
Take a look at Shark Tank if you haven't watched it yet.
American Ninja Warrior
Even if you don’t workout or play sports, the people competing on American Ninja Warrior will take your breath away.
The best part of this show is that most of these people are just normal folks with normal jobs and pretty normal lives. They don’t have massive sponsors and they usually build crude training facilities in their backyards. They practice after work and on weekends. They show that, if you want it bad enough, you'll find a way to get it.
So, what do they do?
They take on some of the most treacherous obstacle courses ever designed. These are just a few examples. There are usually about 8 obsticles in a city finals. Once they go on to Las Vegas for the nationals, there are even more and the difficulty level goes through the roof.
There are countless other obstacles and some of them seem nearly impossible. There have been times when we've been watching competitor after competitor fail on one particular obsticle and wonder if it's possible. The amazing thing is, once one person makes it, it seems even more follow suit. The amazing power of the mind when we finally believe something is possible.
Some of the stories are incredbily inspriring. One example is Kacy Catanzaro, who is just 5 feet tall but she shocked everyone by being the first woman to qualify for the finals in Las Vegas. She was an animal and I’ll tell you, if you have young daughters or granddaughters, have them watch these athletes compete. It is so inspiring.
This TV show will motivate you to push through and do what you originally thought was impossible. I’m not just talking about physical abilities, but all abilities. If they can push through and make it on this course, you can get through whatever obstacle is standing in front of you.
It’s on NBC or you can stream some of the best runs on YouTube or IMDB
America’s Got Talent
This seems like a circus show on the surface, but there are so many talented people who have stretched to get on this show. It’s so inspiring to me.
it's just a singing competition. These are people who do stunts, dances, magic, juggling, motorcycle acts, and more. Really, just about any sort of talent.
Yes, there are a few of the acts that are just worthless and the producers put them on for the pure entertainment value, but they wisely keep those to a minimum. Most of the performers are amazing.
One thing I really take away from this show is how little difference there is between good and great. One more practice session per week, or just a slight change in costuming or music and an act can go from good to great.
Just like life for the rest of us, the greatest determiner of success for these contestants is perserverence. The ones who make it are the ones who are doing what they love and never stop.
Relax This Weekend
Take some time to relax and be inspired this weekend. There are other great shows, but these are a fantastic starting point. I'd even suggest you open up that DVR and schedule these in so you catch the new episodes.
If there's a show I missed that should have been in here, reach out and let me know. I don't watch a lot of TV, but when I do, I want to make it time well spent.

I recorded this episode after taking a week off from most of my business work. In that week, I discovered a "tool" or even a "resource" which has increased my productivity several times over. It's also helped me with my self-discipline and mindset. I even feel a clearly understanding of my purpose. It's been amazing.
So, what is it? Well, it's the fact that I took a week off.
Seriously, I hope you're not disappointed. No, it's not something that you can download form the App Store, or purchase from the office supply store. You can't make it or buy it or even borrow it. This is one of those things you just have to go get for yourself.
Why It's a Struggle
I set myself up with the idea that I was going to put out a show every single day without fail. I love that I set that goal and I have kept to it, even when it's meant working later or extra days, but I did it. If I hadn't set that goal, it wouldn't have happened.
This past week, I "failed" to get out even one episode, but it was different. Why? Because it was intentional. I didn't just let a show slip by and hope I would catch up later. No, I said to myself (and announced to you on Twitter) that I was going to stop for a week. Then I did.
I set a return time and I held myself to it, which is what you're listening to right now. This is vital if you don't want to let a week turn into a month and eventually into a even longer. Set that return date.
Don't Take a Break in the Storm
Last week, in the past two episodes (147 and 148) I shared about a storm our family was going through at the time. It was part of the reason I needed a break, but I think an important distinction I made was to press on in the middle of the storm, until the winds had calmed and the seas had flattened. It was at that point that I said... "let's rest."
You never rest in the storm. You may not be able to do exactly what you were doing before it hit, but you do not want to curl up into a ball and hope for it to go away. That leads to destruction.
I hope you'll take a listen to this episode, because I share openly and candidly about the emotions I felt before doing this and how I feel now. The written word hardly does it any justice. So, scroll to the top and listen. It's about 19 minutes, so it won't take you that long.

You know that feeling… when you put on your favorite jeans and … uh oh, they’re a little snug.
Or you look down at your shirt and you notice the buttons are straining a little more than you’d like, to keep things closed up.
That’s what happened to me.
Why Physical Success Has Been a Struggle For Me
Two things that work against me… I LOVE food. Seriously…
The other thing, I don’t don't LOVE exercise. I love competitive sports, but just getting out and going for run around the neighborhood, or picking up some weights and doing some curls… It’s boring to me.
This Is Why I'm Using the MyFitnessPal App and Website
Here's how this fantastic app works:
You start off simple. How many calories go in versus many calories are consumed
How much do you weigh?
How much do you want to lose (or gain) per week (up to 2 lbs a week)
Then it knows how many calories you need to reach that goal
How active are you?
It then adjust your calorie goal based on that projected activity level and then adjust it based on your real activity level.
Now you know how many calories you can consume each day and still hit your weight loss.
For me, given my current weight, I can consume 1,427 calories per day if I want to lose 2 lbs per week.
I’m mildly active so it adds in 25-30 calories for exercise which brings me to about 1,450 calories per day.
It adjusts based on your actual activity level (iPhone Health app - MapMyRun - FitBit - More)
Set Your MacroNutrient Ratios
If you’re a low fat person, you your fat percentage goal at 20% - 40% Protein and 40% Carbs. It will give you a scale to monitor.
If you add a food item to a meal, it will tell you right then and there that you’ve gone over or that this food is high in a nutrient you’re trying to keep low.
You can monitor this closely
Adding Food You’ve Eaten
This is the beauty of this app. There are SO MANY items.
I love using the barcode scanner. It has yet to miss an item.
Everything I’ve scanned has been in the system. It’s amazing.
You can search for homemade or store bought foods
There’s a massive database. People are adding the most popular recipes from you favorite websites like Food.com, AllRecipes, Epicurious, MyRecipe, and more
If it’s not there…
You can add recipes
Easy to add recipes - Type in the web address of the recipe, make sure it’s imported everything correctly and tell it how much you ate. All done.
Checks your Step Count Automatically
As you walk through your day, MyFitnessPal will automatically update based on the number of steps you take. This is already built into your iOS device, and I believe into many Androids.
If you do more than walking, just enter it like you do your food. The database is full of exercises.
Crossfit WOD’s? They’re in the system.
Your favorite machine at the gym? It’s in the system.
This is the beauty of the app
Measure Your Results
Obviously, it tracks your weight whenever you update it
It can also track any other measurement you’d like.
Everything is easy to track.
There’s even a social element to the app as others you know who use the app see your updates and give you encouragement. It’s not on your Facebook page, if you don’t want it to be. They see it when they check in with their app, so it’s not public.
It’s a Great App to Make Sure You Stay on Target
Like your time meter
Like your financial budget
You don’t just use it when you’re in trouble… use it to keep you OUT of trouble.
Success is a well rounded life. Not a well rounded body…

If you listened to this past Tuesday’s episode, I shared with you some ways you can help yourself become more productive, as I do every Tuesday.
One of those ways I suggested was to create deadlines with very real consequences. The kind of consequences you’re going to do whatever you can to avoid.
Today I’m sharing with you and app that will help you do exactly that.
This is an app that comes out of Yale University. It’s legit. It’s got a lot of science behind it and it works!
Professor Dean Karlan teaches Economics and Professor Ian Ayers teaches law, both at Yale University. They partnered with one of their students, Jordan Goldberg, to create a tool they knew would help people achieve their goals, and it works. Here’s why…
Stickk gives you a platform where you can create what the founders call Commitment Contracts.
This is a contract you create with YOURSELF, but… there’s more to it than that. We’ve all tried that and seen it fail time and time again.
A Commitment Contract involves accountability and the power of “loss aversion."
You know what accountability is, but what about LOSS AVERSION?
You can figure out from the name, it’s about avoiding loss. But why? Why not just be motivated by gain?
Scientific studies suggest people are TWICE as motivated by avoiding loss than achieving a gain. People who lose $100 will be emotionally impacted more than someone who gains $100.
It’s because we don’t value what we don’t have. The potential to gain $100 will not motivate you as much as the real potential to lose $100. That’s the science, in a nutshell, of “Loss Aversion."
Here’s how it works:
Stickk has some predefined goals which you can use or even customize them to meet your needs. If those don’t work, you have the ability to build your own goal from scratch.
So, you start by creating a goal and then laying out the parameters of that goal. What will it take to achieve that goal and what are the specific things you have to do to get there?
Now, here’s where Stickk kicks in with some very real and powerful features.
Losing Money and Having an Honest Referee.
The creators of Stickk state that their data shows, people who have a referee to whom they’re accountable, are TWICE as likely to reach their goal. People who have something financially significant at stake are up to THREE times as likely to achieve their goal.
Put the power of both of those items together and you have Stickk.
When you sign in, you’ll have the opportunity to create a Commitment Contract where you can put something financial on the line. They don’t charge you ANYTHING unless you tell them you want to make the financial commitment and then only after you don’t achieve your goal.
So, what keeps us from cheating and just saying we did it? A referee who will look at your Commitment Journal to determine if you’re reaching your goal.
This journal is where you can post screenshots or pictures of you doing what you said you would do.
Now, it’s not just about having someone lord over you, it’s also about support. You can add in supporters who can see your commitment and progress and then cheer you along. It’s the perfect combination to getting where you want to be in life.
Your referee can be anybody you’d like.
Each time you take action toward your goal, you submit that information to Stickk and your referee will get an email saying you submitted something to your Stickk account. If they’d like, they can ask you for additional proof that you did what you said you did, or be satisfied with what you submitted.
You’re really empowering your referee. So, choose someone you trust but also make sure it’s someone you know will hold you accountable.
Here’s how you miss a goal:
You admit you missed it.
Your referee reports that you missed it
You don’t submit a commitment report in the time window you specified.
When you miss, if you have a financial stake included, your credit or debit card will be charged for the amount you set at the beginning.
As of this podcast, there is $21 million on the line for commitments.
There are just under 300,000 commitments.
That’s an average of about $72 on the line for each commitment. Make sure you choose an amount that’s going to HURT if you lose it.
Where does the money go?
You decide that. You can have it go to someone you want, or even have it go to a charity. Stickk holds the money for the charities and sends them all the stake money at one time at the end of the year. Some of the organizations they support are:
and several others.
Here’s a fun twist. You can create an Anti-Charity as a recipient of your stake.
This is a group or organization you would NEVER want to support financially. That adds a HUGE motivator for some people.
How’s this for some controversial groups?
Or if you’re in the UK:
Various football (or soccer) fan clubs such as
So, I’m sure you can see how this could be VERY motivating if you choose to put enough on the line. For some of these more issues, any amount would be agonizing… for a Chelsea fan to give a penny to the Man U fan club is traumatizing.
Create some of your own… maybe your ex-husband or ex-wife. Maybe your brother who’s living in your basement supposedly unable to get a job. I’m sure you can think of some people to whom you don’t want to send ANY money.
Call to Action
Sign up and make a commitment contract for yourself. If you’d like me to referee, I’d love to help out. You’ll find me in the system as “PDesmond.”

It’s Friday and we’re going to look at a few tools you can use to keep track of your time each day.
If you go back and listen to Episode 131 this past Tuesday, we talked about how we can find lost time in our day.
That’s what these apps are used for. They’re kind of like the diet or fitness apps that keep track of the food you eat each day.
Most of us don’t realize how many grams of protein, fat or carbohydrates we eat each day. But when we track them we can see if things are out of balance.
Same thing with your time.
If you don’t measure it, you won’t know if you’ve improved on it. Measure.
If you’ve ever used Mint on your computer or smartphone, you’ll understand this process.
You have to know where your money is going before you can really lay out an accurate budget.
You have to know where you time is going before you can really lay out an accurate schedule.
So, let’s look at two apps that I think will help you track your time, without being a time drain themselves.
That’s something you always run into when you are trying to improve. You have to make time for “sharpening your saw."
So Let’s Take a Look
This seem kind of basic, but it works great for quickly discerning where your time goes.
Don’t go crazy with too many colors.. that defeats the purpose.
Clients - Projects - Tasks
If you have clients you’re billing, this is very useful, but even if you don’t, this is still very usable because it helps when you’re looking at your reporting.
You can set the time tracking increments to as few as 6 minutes… that works perfect because it breaks each hour into 10 chunks. It also forces you to not worry too much about the accuracy. Don’t get crazy.
You may even want to track in 15 minute blogs. I talk about this back in Tuesdays episode. Go back and listen if you missed it.
You can manually sort where items are on the front page so the most frequently used are at the top.
The worst thing is making time tracking a task in an of itself that needs to be tracked.
These apps, both Hours and Jiffy, make it about as easy as possible. I love that.
Reminders! So you don’t miss time tracking
If you don’t have a task being tracked by a specific time each day, Hours will remind you.
I set mine to remind me every day at 7am and stop reminding me at 9pm.
It will also remind if I go 15 minutes without a task being tracked.
You can adjust all of these time.
This has helped me on a couple of occasions.
Of course, if you do forget to track a task, with both Jiffy and Hours, you can VERY easily go in and manually add it or start it and adjust the time it should have began.
I’ve done this a couple of times with driving. For some reason I get very narrow in my focus when I’m heading out somewhere.
The whole reason for tracking your time is so you can go back and see where your time is being spent and any areas that may surprise you.
The reporting looks like it’s a little prettier on the Jiffy app for Android.
Jiffy offers a more graphical reporting, while Hours just gives you the data
Both of them allow you to look at your time over the past day, week, month, year, all time or even a custom time window.
Another advantage the Jiffy app has is the ability to use Jiffy Tags.
These are physical tags which you can attach to certain items such as your computer screen, maybe your microphone (if you’re podcasting) and maybe something in the kitchen.
When you touch your phone to a Jiffy Tag, it will automatically change the task it’s tracking on your phone. Maybe put one in your car so you don’t forget to track your driving time (something I did frequently).
Jiffy also offers stickers which won’t change the task on your phone, but they will remind you to change it. This could help as well.
Not a Lifetime Commitment
I don’t think you need to track your time for the rest of your life.
I think a good typical week is probably enough to find any glaring time wasters in your average day.
Then you can refine your daily schedule, become more aware of those time wasters and become more efficient.
In a few months, you may want to go back and make sure nothing else has popped up taking more of your time.
But, basically, once you have it under control, you’re going to be done with this app.
Just like tracking your food, it’s a lot about awareness and making changes based on that data.
I Can’t Believe You Didn’t Mention TOGGL!
I know… if you use Toggl, you’re outraged I didn’t mention it.
Honestly, I didn’t really dig into but I do plan on giving it a try at some point.
Toggle looks great because it is a cross platform time tracker which allows you to start tracking on one device and stop tracking on another. This could come in VERY handy in some work environments.
Toggl also works great with team environments. It’s really meant for billable hours on projects.
You may have several team members working on one project and they all need to account for their time.
You can also use it just to make sure you’re pricing your services properly. Even if you’re not billing per hour.
It’s available for iOs, Android, Windows, Mac, and even Linux.
It will integrate with project management software like Trello or Asana.
It’s free for teams up to 5 people and unlimited projects.
If you want the ability to put in billable rates for each project or task,, or you need bigger team sizes, you’ll need to go up to the Pro version which is $5 per user.
Don’t COMPLICATE THIGNS
The last think you want to do is complicate this process. It shouldn’t become a burden.
Don’t stress if you don’t have the tracking down to the exact minute.
Also, don’t overanalyze your time or track time for too long.
Unless you’re required to track time for billing, this is going to be a short lived project for most people.

There’s an old Russian Proverb that says “If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either one."
This is the way life can feel for people like us. We’re idea people and we have ideas popping into our head all the time. We want to catch every single one of them and we end up catching nothing.
I just finished it up today and I can tell you, this book was MADE for people who listen to this show: Mindset - Productivity - Self-DIscipline - Purpose
These are all major heading in this book.
The authors do a great job of illustrating why it’s vital we focus on and FINISH The ONE Thing in our life at this moment which will make all other things unnecessary or a lot easier.
The Domino Effect
Gary and Jay talk about the Domino Effect. In fact, today I saw a video where someone illustrated this perfectly.
You have a MASSIVE goal, but you just have to finish the ONE thing that’s most important right now. When you know over that domino, by finishing that one thing, it will help knock over the even bigger domino that’s next. Then by finishing or knocking down that domino, we help knock over the next bigger one.
Watch the Domino Effect Video.
Pereto Your Tasks
If you go back to this past Tuesdays episode (#126) How to Pereto Your Way to Productivity, you’ll hear about he method Jay and Gary use to focus our attention on the tasks that are most important.
They use a tool I used as a development engineer in the semi-conductor industry. The Pereto Effect.
The 80-20 rule.
Why Discipline is Important
The authors scared me initially because they said “Discipline wasn’t important.” Well, I thought they said that.
They share why so many of us can’t sustain our discipline. Because we’re trying to be disciplined in too many areas.
Maintain your discipline in ONE area, until that area becomes a HABIT.
Once something is a habit, it is a lot less taxing on our discipline. Then we can use that energy on another area we’d like to make into a habit.
The Focusing Question.
This isn’t just a book of theory, there are real tools you can put into play right now. Like the Focusing Question.
The question you need to ask yourself in order to figure out what you should be focusing on RIGHT now.
It’s in Chapter 10 of the book…
This book is a book YOU would benefit from reading right now.
I listened to it on Audiobook and I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve implementing the processes they outline and I’m feeling a lot more clarity about what I should be doing right now. Like this Podcast… my ONE thing for today.

A recent poll by the American Psychological association indicates, the #1 stress inducer for Americans is money. It's not an abundance of money causing the problems, either. It's a lack of it.
This might hurt, but, the truth is, for most people, money issues are caused by spending more than you make.
Yes, I know, you may have lost your job prematurely
Yes, you may have had some surprise medical bills
Yes, there are a number of items which may have hurt you financially
Most of us are struggling financially because we’re spending more than we make. That's always been the case for me, when I've been struggling with money. Honestly, you'll have to answer this for yourself, but I have yet to meet someone, who was completely honest with themselves, who didn't have a major part in their money problems.
Even if you’ve been hit with a surprise bill, the truth is, we (myself included) didn’t have the money to pay it because we spent more than we made and didn’t have the money to save for those unexpected expenses.
So let’s talk about spending less than we make.
There are a lot of budgets out there. From a standard spreadsheet to a specialty app for our phone or computer. The Mint app is available in the iTunes App store and in Google Play. But, it's great for seeing where you money went, but it won't do much to keep it going where you've told it to go.
But, I’m going to give you the absolute easiest system available.
The envelope system
Before we talk about this, I want to stress with you, involve those who will be impacted. Your spouse and kids will need to be on board from the very beginning if you want to make this budget work.
The biggest reason a budget won’t work… You underestimate what you’re going to spend. So, take a moment and look at your previous bank statements to see what’s been going out. But, remember, this doesn’t set the number but it tells you where you’re at right now. It gives you a ballpark number.
From this ballpark number, you'll be able to look at where you need to tighten your belt and were you need to possibly loosen it and budget for more.
If you’ve been spending $800 a month in groceries, but when you set up your budget, you write down $500, you're probably setting yourself up for failure. That’s pretty unrealistic
Here’s what you do:
Pay the fixed costs
Rent or Mortgage
Other debt with a minimum payment.
Get all of those figured out and pay them immediately.
Put something away into savings. Do it NOW. You can’t avoid the fixed costs, but you CAN adjust the variables we’re about to go into. Make sure you take BABY STEPS in your effort to get yourself where you WANT to be.
The balance will be taken out of the bank in cash and distributed among some envelopes
You will have to evaluate frequently. For example:
Groceries (this may have to adjust)
Gas Money (this may have to adjust)
Clothing (don’t spent it ALL… remember Back-to-School)
Annual Expenses (Vehicle Registration, Maintenance, Holiday Gifts)
Travel or Vacation
Hopefully this all helps you get to the point where you have a basic budget that allows you to tell your money what to do, rather than it telling you what you can or can't do.
Budgets work if you make them realistic.
