Listen: Eric Su, Neil Patel, Australia discussed on Marketing School
"I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about seven hacks we used to to perform at an elite level. Hack number one I'll start. I've been raving about this when I got a lot of engagement on Lincoln on this one I flew over to Sydney Australia lasts Monday day. Let it on Wednesday at eight thirty. Am I use. The APP called time shifter and it basically gives me a sleeping schedule that I follow and I literally had no jetlag and when I got back to L. A.. I was only in Australia for four days. GOT BACK TO LA on Sunday at six am stayed up the whole day had no jet lag. I'm fine right now completely early. Fine I mean you go into office on Monday completely no jet lag so time shift or you get the first one the first scheduled for free and it's like thirty bucks a year. Something like that so so if you find yourself traveling that is something that you should definitely get so hack number. Two that I've used is live convenient life and here's what I mean by. Hi this you don't need a lot of money you don't need to have all the things in the world optimized your life for convenience that what you focus on work and here's an example apple of this. We're hearing Eric's apartment. It's really nice amazing view. But what you guys don't see is he's very minimalistic. He doesn't need a lot of stuff. He doesn't need a lot of clothes you know. When I opened up his fridge he keeps them super simple? There's this water in there. He gets food delivered to him that is already premade right and he does is all of this stuff so that way he can live a very efficient life another buddy years ago. Who told me his name is Malik? He's like if you can't pack your clothes on a carry on suitcase the case you have too many clothes because then it just takes you too much time to pack. It takes you too much time to figure out what you're gonNA wear for the day. Sure not all of us can do the Mark Zuckerberg thing where everywhere the same thing every single day. But you guys get the point whether you have a lot of money or you. Don't you can still optimize convenience whether it's getting rid of clutter and access in in your life that you don't need so that way you can spend more time working or whether Ed's stopping yourself from doing silly tasks that you can outsource onsite task rabbit if they're still around to other around and outsource for pennies on the dollar so that way again you can be efficient with your time and focus on work number three so I am going to continue down the theme around sleep so when I think about sleep when I look at my room and we'll probably video on this later but there's this book called why we sleep you can and watch a Tedtalk on it for a Matthew Walker but it's a great talk because it talks about. How sleep is the biggest superpower that you can have and basically what I do is? I tried to sleep at the same time and I'm not going to say I'm like the most often my sleeper. But I do try to do as much as I can so I I sleep with the room at sixty eight degrees and I have or ring. Oh you are A and that tracks by sleep and trucks kind of you know where things are good where things are bad so for example last night I don't drink much alcohol lesson. I drank little by heart. Rate spikes usually see my wrestling. Explains the allergy. Now maybe yeah but my heart rate is usually resting heart is usually about forty two or so so it's a little on the lower side but what I drink. It spikes up to sixty which is pretty crazy so that does affect my sleep quite a bit. I'm just saying you're track your sleep and do what you can to optimize your sleep and indefinitely watched that Ted talk are another thing that I want you guys to test out is use it to do this so break down your day on what you need chief in that day before you go to sleep and break down those tasks where they can be done well with an hour so like ideally fifteen minute chunks thirty minute chunks at the biggest and if you do that what you'll find find is you know what you need accomplish each and every single day to start hitting your goals versus being like oh I got this big old that I wanna hit next quarter next year if if you don't break it down and literally bite size increments like task I'm not I'm a big task. I'm talking about things that you can literally do within fifteen thirty minutes. It's very unlikely that you're you're actually GonNa hit the goal and that's one of the biggest things that I've done in my life that helps me achieve a lot and you can ask anyone that knows me for a very longtime like Eric. I'm amazing execute an amazing executed. Because I'm breaking everything down in such small bite size chunks. I don't sleep until well I get them all done. This is true number. Five number five is I actually got this Guy that runs a company called Petra. His name's Andy. So there's this thing called a ten ten ten model so so basically the way this is set up. Is You spend ten minutes on meditation. Ten minutes on journaling. Ten minutes on reading right. I modified it a little bit. I'm calling this kind of the five through thirty model and starting to do this this week but trying to create your own version of this right so might be five minute journaling. Ten minute meditation. I might be fifteen minutes of fifteen minutes of just thinking right and thirty thirty minutes of Peleton bike or training or whatever but the whole idea here is that it's broken down into kind of similar to what Neil saying bite sized chunks right. I do like ten ten ten because it's very simple to remember our minds a little more complicated but and then what I do there is I basically track. I use the APP called way of life and I basically markdown with our finishing the task every single day. It's pretty like like if I'm doing like six or seven different things. Probably miss like one thing per day. Lucky enough if I can hit all the but that way I have that habit established so you know talking about bite size chunks talking about habits. That's how you can kind of combine the two together number six wake up early. Adjust your schedule. I'm not talking about you know. Yeah you need optimize your seat Air Cardi cover over that. I'm talking about more. So star worked at five. Am So if that means talk about four to get ready work how shower etc start your work death that five am. I start mine really early. I tend to wake up Brown for him every single day. Funny Enough I do it naturally. I don't even need alarm. Luckily I have a crying baby that helps without one on and I found that I get way more work done because less people bug you in the morning versus if you start your work day the same time that everyone else. Does you got a Shitload of people bugging you. Which means that you're focusing on putting out fires dealing with them doing with email versus getting ahead of the day? Yeah number seven is to batch your day. It's not even batches with Neil Tournament bashing up little task but I'm talking about bashing her days so you know typically. I mean we have Thanksgiving this week. So typically on Thursdays those are today's I try to record contents of video content podcast content. And whatever Neil and I have time we'll try to do this. PODCAST Thursdays I try to make them put a theme around it. Mondays are all my meetings. Usually by Mondays as I'm completely blasted by the end of the day. Which is why I like to talk to anybody after Monday? And then Tuesday. I tried to focus on click flow with software company. Same thing with Wednesday as well Friday. I tried to keep it completely blocked off meetings. And that's what I get time to kind of think like time to think but now I have this new thing where I spend time to think every single day so that helps a lot so batch out your days have a theme for each day if you can. I think you're starting out your your business. You probably can't do that. You don't have that luxury but as you get the leverage of having capital people around you you had to leverage of of code as well. You are going to be able to do that so you wanna be able to protect your time. Because that's the the only thing that that you have anyway. Does it per day. You WanNA close it out.
