SPI 043: How to Have Laser-Like Focus and Stress-Free Productivity—Summer Marketing Mashup 2012

The Smart Passive Income Podcast Logo

In this session of The Smart Passive Income Podcast, I have not one, not two, not three, not four – but five guests in what is known as the Summer Marketing Mashup.

This is a round table session with myself and some of the top podcast hosts and online business minds, including:

For 4 consecutive weeks this summer, this panel meets live on a webinar and we discuss a different topic each week. Each person shares a tip about that specific topic and then we go to the live audience for questions.

This session is the second session we’ve had, which I’m happy to host here on the SPI Podcast and it’s all about how to have laser-like focus and stress-free productivity, which is extremely important for all of us who run a blog and/or a business online – especially in this world which seems to throw distractions at us all of the time.

The first session, which was all about traffic, is hosted on the Internet Business Mastery Podcast, which you can listen to here.

You can join us live on the third and fourth sessions, which happen at 6pm PST on Tuesday, August 7th and 14th, respectively. Click here to register for the free webinars. 

In this session you’ll learn about:

  • The #1 Multiplier for Dan and Ian’s business overseas.
  • How Jason and Jeremy use an Operation Manual to get things done much faster and done right.
  • Your best 20 hours and how that can take your business to the next level.
  • “Just in Time Learning” and what Jeremy would do if he could do it all over again from the start.
  • The two types of time and how to track and schedule a proper ratio between the two for maximum output.
  • How letting little bad things happen can actually help you focus on your bigger goals and become more efficient.
  • The power of walking for productivity and focus.
  • Where you should be spending most of your time in your business.
  • Why checklists are your friend.
  • The “big elephant in the room” that will motivate you like nothing else.

Questions we answer from the live audience:

  • Is there anything that you say to yourself to stay focused while doing work?
  • What percentage of my work should be allocated toward email, SEO, content creation, and social media?
  • How do you properly schedule writing several  blog posts a week and make sure they are of high-quality?
  • How do you get from dreaming to inspired action when you first started?
  • Are keeping track of analytics a waste of time? How to you make sure the time you spend checking analytics works in your favor?
  • If you only had an one hour a day to work on your business, what would you be doing?

This was a great session with a ton of focus and productivity tips. Like I mention at the end of the session, learning is great, but nothing will ever happen unless you take what you learn, and do something with it.

Cheers, thank you for listening and thank you so much for your support! Here’s to you and getting things done in your business and in life.
