If you're like many podcasts you want to reach your maximum potential, but how how do you make Google podcast stand out from all the rest join doctor Barrett Matthews as he talked to a girl who are doing it on the productive podcaster. Hey everybody, welcome to another episode of the productive podcaster. I am dr. Matthews and I am just thrilled. I'm just itching to get started. I can't wait. This is going to be a fantastic show for you today. We're excited to get this thing going out of a good guest coming on. Who is someone I'll let you know what the secret is later. I'll let you know later. But the thing is off we are ready to get this thing started because productive podcaster is a podcast for podcasters. It is designed to help you to be more productive in a way that you don't have to worry about some of the things that people do because we're going to help you to maneuver and navigate through those trials and tribulations. So we don't want to focus on how many viewers do I have how many lists do I have how many downloads do I have money? How much money did it make on your podcast? It's yeah if you want to do all those things, but we want to help it started as less of a worry for you and more of just part of your daily business. So that's what we do dead. At the productive podcast and we start off every episode with a segment that we like to call pros and cons pros and cons. So what is pros and cons pros and cons is our way of giving you some tips to help you to be a professional podcast for so that you don't end up having problems later on the edge of the things we realized with a lot of podcasters is that when they talk to other people when they talk they don't know how to communicate via podcast to make it sound natural and I thought the easiest thing I can tell you is be natural, but when they said after someone, you know, it's like saying don't look down because they're gonna do it and it's going to get them even more nervous and Afraid. So one thing we we tell people to do is tell stories think about like when you're talking to your friends or your family and you want to get something across and you tell a story off with it and when you tell that story it gives them to relate because they can see themselves in the story. That's what you have to do as a podcaster tell a lot of stories I mean Thursday Think about this they imagine if you're with your your best friends or hanging out you may be going out getting something to eat. And then you have something if you want to relate to them and they're all off, you know, just have them talking but you want to get everyone's attention and you say something. Hey. Hey. Hey remember when this happened remember when you did that and that happened and we got in trouble now all of a sudden everyone's listening wage because they're remembering and they're seeing themselves in that story that same thing can happen when you're doing a podcast that same thing can happen. If you tell a story that brings them in all of a sudden they are your audience and they are hanging on your every word when you do that. It engages them as well. They want to contribute. They want to be a part of it off. Now. Another thing you can do is use some analogies your some metaphors like this. Remember how how that happened because it reminded you of this Smile Smile Dog Re-engaging make sure that people want to talk to you and put some humor in. It's okay to put humor in your podcast. It is quite all right for you to laugh. It's okay to laugh on your podcast. I know many of you did not know that cuz you want to say so straight and buttoned up and you want to make sure that this sounds so professional and so straight-laced know you can laugh in your podcast because guess what I stayed all the time if your show it's your show.

Barrett Matthews and I am fortunate enough to have a very very special guest know. Why is he so very special could it be because he and I went to the same college that could be one reason but let me tell you something about this gentleman I have a name is Eric Twigs now Eric is the author of a book called The discipline of now twelve practical principles to overcome procrastination. So they you know, that's near and dear to my heart. That's subject matter right there. And what he's able to do is he's able to give a blueprint to be procrastination. Now some of you are sitting there watching this going gosh, that's me with me. So you can make more money, of course beyond that you can get more business if you can be procrastination an Eric is here to help you to do that because he feels bad as Divine Purpose now, he has led organizations of 500 km, Four people in Corporate America, and he shared his message with corporations all over and associations and congregations all across the country. He's a certified life and business coach and you conducted over 28,000 coaching sessions 28,000 Hillman Executives and leaders and entrepreneurs then they moved from Billings being frustrated cuz being fulfilled now, he's also the host. This is why I wanted them here. He's the host of a podcast with I had the pleasure to be a guest on called the 30-minute our I'm telling you guys. It was a lot of fun. If you get a chance check it out. If you get a chance to be on there, that would be even more fun cuz I had a ball with Eric but I want to bring to to productive podcast but none other than Eric Twigs Uncle Eric, welcome aboard man. Hey Barrett, thank you for having me on your show. It's really an honor man. It's an honor to have your brother said I don't have you now. I want you to talk a person off. Your book about tell us about you. But what what prompted you to write a book on getting over procrastination? Well, it just so critical. So the book is the discipline of now twelve practical principles wage overcome procrastination. So in all of my work, I've noticed, you know, like you mentioned I've had 28,000 coaching sessions supervise all these people you're going to have someone that gets good results and then you're going to have someone that get great results. And here's what I found is interesting is that a lot of cases. They have a simular know how level then they know a lot of the same things off, but I feel that the difference between the good and the great the great they just have this uncanny Habit to do what they need to do whether they feel like it or not. So I wanted to put a tool in people's hands that can help them go from good to great and really become aware of those things that trigger them to procrastinate so they can move forward with the dog. One of now that's great. One of my mentors he puts it in a simple term. He said the reason people don't do things because they just don't want to be in the great ones. There's something they just do it whether they feel like they're not they do it. And and that's the thing. I I agree with you a hundred percent on that. That's interesting. So tell me how the book done so often it's it's twelve chapters. It's a hundred pages. I wanted to make it, you know an easy read. So just mean I know of someone's got a procrastination issue. They don't want they don't want to read War and Peace it went something that simple to digest and the book is is got exercises. Oh affections to help you to be like, for example, when I talk about creating a vision is a couple of different exercises that I have in the book to help you wish that so it's meant to be interactive. But the bottom line is when you're done reading it you'll become aware of all those thoughts. Is that trigger you and you'll be able to put a plan in place to move forward now, you have a great podcast a 30-minute our was the book something that prompted you to do the podcast or the dog had cast prompt you to the book. Well not had the book first, but I was just looking at other ways to get the message out and I just happened to be the CEO friend of mine that you met Ted feels. Yeah, we would always talk. You know what we have to find a way work together. You're doing great things. Like I'm doing great things we have to work together and we literally sat out of the Starbucks wage and came up with the idea for starting a podcast and we came up with the name the 30-minute our I'm sure you're not the first one to have a meeting at Starbucks and have it turned in this so I won't be the last time you were better the blood that's right. Exactly exactly. So as far as the podcast, how did you come up with the format? Well, we we say that it's not your everyday podcast. And so one of the things with the book I've interviewed all the time on various podcasts and I listen to different projects gas and I noticed that a lot of them didn't have the personal humor element, right? Yeah, you bring the guests on you talk to them. We definitely left. Right? Right. Right, right. So that's one of the things that we wanted to make it. So Ted now, we have a great relationship, you know, as far as we're friends. Yeah, and that comes across on the podcast. So it's it's a mixed bag. It's a mix of humor. It's entertaining but we also make a point to throw in content that people can take away. Oh you do wanted to make it different from all the other podcasts are out there, and that's what you have to do. And if you're going to do a podcast if you're going to any type of broadcast any type of Any type of way to get your content out. You're going to have to make it something that people don't say. Oh, it's just like this one or just like that one. So that's good that you do that. I want to know how you come up with the name. The 30-minute. Our home was interesting. We were going our original name was going to be shooting from the hip right because we didn't want it to come across and so scripted and so she like every other podcast but then we were dead or alive shooting going on during that time. So we may want to think about that name. You have the wrong audience. We ended up deciding on the 30-minute hour is because like a funny thing is most people think that the interview is 30 minutes in most cases. It's an hour, but we we wanted to feel like it's only 30 minutes you wanted to feel like the end of the our main office ready because the entertainment the humor and then the content so that that's how we landed on the 30-minute our okay, let's let's go so when you started it what challenges did you hear me? You run into. Oh, I I have patience issues sometimes right? I like I like to see results immediately and not I'm thinking, you know, at first we need the first couple of episodes and people would tell them that these good things. So I'm I'm expecting a we have a hundred thousand followers right away, but but not seeing the same instant following I think is a challenge and I think just, you know having just we learned kind of knew this but it we were reminded of the fact that just have to stay consistent wage really gather people's attention. So I think the shower and then just you you kind of go through a trial and error face as well, you know, as you get as you get more experience, you start seeing things that work better and you start to see things that may not work as as well. And so yeah, so we just kind of we've been we learn along the way so long Doing that and going through trials and errors. What would you say to someone right now? They were starting a podcast to kind of ease their either the little attention that they have and starting it off. Well, I just think the podcasters I think you brought this up when you're an outside cat like the typical podcast listener. They have a higher median income. They they tend to be home and get it when it comes to investing in themselves. So I think it's an ideal medium and I think it's a great opportunity to get your message out there, right? You don't have to wait to get paid. You don't have the not like you're waiting for this big publisher to say you're good enough. So now you can jump right out there and you just never know who is listening. You said, you know, we get I've been guilty with this right, you know caught up in numbers. But if it's one person, let's say that one person is Oprah a good point off. I think the focus has to be just getting your message out there and not not worrying about how many listeners and if it's not perfect. Just getting your message out to people. I agree that that's the key tell people. The biggest thing you can do is get started. Yes. That's the biggest thing you can do is get started with the podcast because you never know where it can take you someone told me a long time ago. You gotta be bad boy get good. So just started you're not going to be a year from now. You won't be in the same position, right? You will go you're going to be forced to grow because you're doing over and over and over again know what would you say is your biggest growth in that in from the time you started to now well, so we've added video. Okay, and and some of that is because of the pandemic right? We were forced cuz at one point we were meeting in this conference room, and we were just doing audio. We did YouTube things. Yeah, we weren't doing live off. Video, right we were forced to change and the good thing is the timing was perfect because we had already had forty-five or forty six episodes under our bill with the timing down. And so we went to live video. It was like perfect timing and oh our views and I follow it followers it just grew back up going to ask. That's what I was going to ask me cuz you know, a lot of people I get that question all the time from people about should I add video notice that it can't hurt to add video Gane video people. Here's the thing about video versus audio is that people may not have the attention span to always just listen to something but when it catches their eye, they get hooked Thursday afternoon, they'll one don't want to turn the sound up cuz they want to know what's going on if they see you laughing on camera. They want to know what you laughing at. It's just one of those things that I'm glad to hear that I'm glad they did. Say that page. One of the the biggest thing the biggest growth things about about your podcast the 30-minute our now what type how do you how do you vet your your guess? How do you figure out who who you want to be against your podcast? Well, I just look for like what value are they going to add to our listeners? And I'm just we're fortunate from the standpoint that the one thing I hear from them by casters is a struggle to get guests. I hear about that but but 10:00 that we have never had that problem. That's good. Like literally we have the opposite problem. That's great. That's a great great problem to have you gotta bring maybe never move in a struggle for it. I think some of them is because of our networks, you know, we're tied to so many different types of people. I mean for me between the hangout in connection between the fraternity between all the people I meet when I'm out with my book and doing speaking engagements and what's happening and I think this is a good sign that your podcast wage. Traction when people are always reaching out to you wondering how they do on your show. That is very good. You're absolutely right. You're absolutely right and you're doing a great job and doing that and you did mention the fact the Hampton connection. Yes, we went to have the university. We we both are alarmed. How about how many guests have you had from our prestigious University? Oh man. It's been quite a few. I mean, I'm not allowed to at least 15 at least wow now and I'm bringing that up for those of you who are listening or watching this to let you know that you do have something tap into it may not be, you know half University. It may be something else but you have something to tap into if you're looking for guests, even if you're looking for Content, you can go to those people and get content from so so that's great job. I didn't ask to me to ask this earlier. How when did you start and how many episodes have you done? So now we're on episode number 58 so we will start it was it was last year. It was like last in the January of last year when we started bombing nineteen years. Wow. So the 10th feel the same thing. As far as the biggest girls being video would he would he say something else now? He'd say the same thing. You said the same thing here now we talk about it all the time. So it was down there any apprehension about using video. A lot of people have apprehension about it. Not really I think there maybe they would have been if we if it was episode number three and we were starting to go live off but the good thing with us is even when we were recording it. We always handled it like it was live. So if we made a mistake, we just kept going that's it. We just most of the time people know we will even call each other out if we make a mistake during an episode and it's but it's fun. It's like and I think that's that's the big takeaway for anybody that's out there watching wage. Don't worry about the mistakes don't understand us know it's going to happen. You know, he'll just keep just keep moving forward. I mean I think stumbling is a sign that you're on the right track when you're out there trying to make it happen. You're going to have mistakes. You just have to keep moving forward and I always say cuz my background is in television. I tell people the people watching want to know that you're a human being like them off then they can relate to you say that it's okay to stumble over word. It's okay to do that. It's okay to laugh. But let me tell you I did a presentation of the day and in the middle I had to stop and sneezed. Okay, people want to know that you humans. That's that's a great thing about what I like. No. I wanted to ask you what made you go from recording to going live. Well again, I think just the situation and we just saw the benefit of utilizing that Facebook live tool and as we as we're talking to people you're starting to see people commenting in real time and you can interact back with them in real time and just adds another element and every now like we did a Q&A session with this business consultant. He's you know, seven years here. Yeah. So yeah people just firing in questions and it went very well and it would have been the same if we if it was just recorded in the studio. Right? Right, right. So that's good. I like that. I like that that element that you decide to change from going live to I mean from from going video to going live so that way you can get more of a a real mess with absolute a realness about it and don't get me wrong guys. If you're watching doesn't mean you have to do that. But if you also heard him say when he did it recorded, he did it as if it were a lot so long You don't have to cuz sometimes I know a lot of people think I keep messing up to keep messing up. Once again. You still want to stay human. But if you mess up you can record and do it over again. It's okay. No one's going to crucify you gave me add something to you know, what I got that from so and I started out as a professional speaker and I had a speech coach his name is Ed Tait. He's actually been on a on off the podcast and he would always tell me when you're practicing even if you mess up just keep going. Yes, even if you're in the Mirror by yourself at home and you practice you mess up just keep going and then it's just stuck with me. Yeah and see my background is from from the media. If you're if you're going to a news broadcast, you can't stop and say can we start over you gotta keep going live you gotta keep going. So I appreciate I appreciate that. So Eric tell people how they can find out about your podcast to see it or listen. However know a couple of ways you can go to Facebook page. Just type in the 30-minute hour and that'll get you right to our page we go every Monday at 7:00. We do the 30-minute our we also on Wednesdays at 6:00.

There's no military Secrets, but she's giving away. She's a talking to some of the spouses and actually page as she puts. It might be sometimes therapeutic for you know for their marriage for them to talk to somebody and it's it's a fun way of just getting it out there to people getting a message out living spouse's know.

Quote, I love it cuz it's kind of funny as well. If from douglas hofstadter douglas hofstadter. He has Hofstadter's law house. His lawyers. If it all takes longer than you expect. Even when you take into account Hofstadter's law what pops out of law it always takes longer than you expect when you take into account off status a lot of table so funny when the day so understand this cuz this resonated with me when I read that a lot of people when they start a podcast they get so concerned about how slow it's growing. Oh my God, should I quit because no one's listening right now. It takes time to build and guess what it takes longer than you expect. Even when you take into account Hofstadter's law. So understand that it's not a Sprint. It's a marathon your podcast has to grow it has to build you don't give birth to an adult you give birth to a baby and it grows into a toddler a child a team so forth. It has to grow. Why aren't you giving your podcast the same privilege to grow? Let it grow your people will grow with you and when you do when that happens, you will see that it can blossom into something beautiful. If you give it the time, you can't rush the caterpillar out of the Cocoon. You gotta let it run its course and grow into the caterpillar same thing applies to your podcast. It can be something beautiful if you give it a time, but understand it's going to take longer than you expect.

Their businesses is also created a lot of millionaires this. This is someone who definitely WanNa hear and he has a podcast is doing wonderful because doing great work as well. So I want to introduce you to none other than Mr Myron Golden Myron. Walk through productive podcast. Thank you. Thank you appreciate that it's my pleasure beer while I'm glad to have it. I tell people what it is that you do as Marengo the. Business in soccer you do. I teach people how to sell from stage teach people at a Celtic and high offers, how to grow their business exponentially. But to do all of that using biblical principles, wounds now biblical principles of you in my opinion probably one of the most knowledgeable people on the Bible that I have ever ever met. Desperately, need to meet more people. Do will people but you will, I mean, let's face it. It gives you tell yourself you've been studied sending a Bible we were a teenager. Tina for forty two years according to. I don't know too many people. That look that can still move around have been studying that law. Touche. NASA I mean. Most of us, you know we are familiar with the Bible at sixteen, but we don't steady at that eight and you began studying that eight looks like I said, and you'd never stopped so that that right there put you in a different stratosphere as far as I'm concerned with people who who are. Biblical scholar. So to speak now, because of that, you decided to take that into another era which his success with your your podcast. Of Baba success principal with Bibles Success Secrets Secrets Secrets. Obviously the secrets thousands secrets now now the thing is. When it comes to. Success. outed. How did you put that word in it with about why? Why did you tie that together? That's a good question so Because everything that God ever created he created to succeed. You created the Sunshine Chines birds to fly they fly wind blow it blows water flow flows great human beings to be in dominion. And human beings are the only thing that God created. The oftentimes don't succeed in the reason we don't succeed I believe is because we have a choice. Room and the ad I really agree with their well said now bio success sex secret. So what what a secret? Why Secrets? Well. They're not secrets because God wants to keep keep them secret secret because few few people know about them. And few people talk about them for whatever reason, and so therefore, they don't get the benefit of those secrets and another another concept of a secret. A secret is something that is valuable. A few people know about well, there's nothing more valuable. I believe than the than the practical principles inscription people think the Bible is a book about religion. The Bible Governmental Document and it governed governs every molecule in this universe and some people say why don't believe the Bible? That's okay. The Bible doesn't need you to believe it any more than oxygen easy to believe in oxygen or for you to back is when it and. And so. So. I. Believe that God has given us principles on how to make the work we do work. In scripture in if we do it the way he said do it. It works every single time in. So y Bible success secrets because when we we discover these secrets and then we develop ourselves according to the secrets and then we deploy ourselves into marketplace using these secrets. The success that we have is absolutely dynamic. You said that we don't know these things for whatever reason what is your opinion? Is the reason why we don't know. Because when we look at the Bible, look at it through religious covered colored glasses. Were looking at it for something to know instead of for something to do. And so so many people. WanNa know quote no, the Bible. Yeah what Christ himself said he said if any man will do his, will he shown no the doctrine in other words if you don't do you. You don't get to know any more than you know. In some things can only be learned by the doing of the thing. Wow. So that being said, what made you begin a podcast on this? Because businesses a passion of mine who I love business I, think, this is a good idea because businesses are got idea. I like the the game challenge. if you will the exercise of making money, I like that. And the Bible speaks a lot about it and most people think that God is against people having money they think God against business anything you know God would never create something like that. They think like. Wealth in money in prosperity is satanic. Well, the reality is Christ said I am come that you might have life in the you might have it more. So abundance is godly. He said the thief comes not but for to steal to kill him destroy. So lack is actually evil. Not, implying that people who lack are evil but definitely. Not, just implying what stating insisting that if you practice evil, the end result will be some form of lack or poverty. Got It got a guy now with with your podcast. I love it I love the Pike I listened to it. When I'm driving done, I've been on road performed this listening to your podcasts auto Love it, and you you take a lot of this research you and your tied in with. Life and business as well. Because it's not just about is just about life. As you said, the Bible is is a manual on on what to do and doing that what kind of. Be. have. You gotten from people who listen to your cats everybody who communicates with me about it? I'm sure this is not the case for everybody but everybody who communicates with me about the feedback is always mindful. And it's interesting like a lot of people say what you said well. You know I tied the scriptures together with business principles or practical, but I don't tie it I just don't. I don't tie together I just never untied. A CPA I think I'm making the connection I'm not making the connection. The connection was already there. I just didn't remove the connection because I had tear motor. So. What it says in other words, other people have already untited that they think there's a a tie there like. Yeah that's why they think that I've done something because all of the teachers they've ever heard have already untied the application that was already there. I didn't I didn't. It was already in the by this morning. I didn't. Let Astro because most of us when we bank Bible, we don't think business. In. We don't think Bible so yeah. I get an don't. Only think family that don't think Bible and within when they think friendship, they don't think Bible. But when I think of anything. The best way to have a good anything. To do it according to biblical principles. I agree with you. I totally agree with you and. With your with your podcast, how long? How long have we been running it now? So shame on me. Shame when you came on me thing I did twenty nine episodes. Okay. Twenty nine episodes a year and a half ago. Wow. Well, here's a great thing about America in that same. All you. Have Not Jane. They have not changed. A. So they still. May still apply, but I also have a facebook group. Called Bible Success Secrets will and I teach the same concepts in there. The same kinds of concepts in there that I teach, teach my podcast and I've been doing that for six years and you never buy low according to it's in the facebook group. Bible. Success Secrets and there are literally hundreds of hours of me teaching Biblical success principles. The League won't be that into the PODCAST. Whale. Content for something else. Yeah. I. Got You all right I. Am for something else, and that's why it's not a part of the those there will be a repurposing on at least. Latin, that rain not from back to that rather repurposing from. Something else. I wanted to bring this up because your podcast topic in subject matter is different than most by guests and it definitely a a blue. Ocean. Our concur you. Bring this up because a lot of people that I talked to who are. Cautious about starting podcasts always wonder do I have an audience? Does anyone WanNa hear what I have to and I know you've never thought that way but what do you say to those people that think that go to the? Grocery store. Go to the magazine Rack. And just count the number of categories that there are magazines on. Turn on your television. And count the number of channels there are and count the number of shows on all kinds of different topics, and that will let you know that if you are doing. Green eyed cats. From. Where from Antigua? You're GONNA have somebody. WHO's an audience for that subject matter through? That I told someone recently I think mentor don't WanNA. Episodes that I went to a conference earlier this year. On podcasting. And people from all over the world they're a you'll pike. Some of the weirdest topics I had ever heard of absolutely I'm not talking about this people who were like, no got your pockets I'm Donald these are the speakers neither the presenters at somebody oddest topics and I'm like, wow, there's a podcast everything everything. Absolute. It's amazing to me. So I mean please listen to what Myron said go to grocery store look look into magazines, change your channels. The podcast for everything now. Bible. Success Secrets now. There are different versions of the Bible. Sure. How do you approach that? So. First of all, I understand that translation. Is, commentary. So what I mean by that is impossible to translate. Scripture from one language to another. Without. Adding some form of commentary, for instance. If I were to say to you what was Jesus was occupation you would say he was A. Carpenter. Right. But the reality is. Biblically speaking it wasn't a carpenter he was a builder. Now. Why do I say that? Well, if you've ever been to Israel, you know they have no forest right with beans. If you don't have four, you don't have. Would you don't have lumber you don't have lumber you can't be a carpenter, right? Right. But when they translate the Bible into English because the resource in Israel almost every house is built out of stone right now almost all the House Bill Esto, you're not gonNA find wooden buildings in Israel anyway. I. I've been Israel I don't. Two or three times I've never seen a wooden building in Israel. There's very little would right and the would that is, is like olive trees that have liked the the trunk is not that big around, right so Myron, what's your point? My point is. When the English people translated from builder. into. English. A builder in England was a carpenter so they translated carpenter. So what I do, when I'm studying the Bible I use resources to help me study. The original word definitions of the original words in the original language I use the King James version of the Bible predominantly use the complete Jewish Bible, and then I use resources like strong's concordance like an inner linear Bible light the etymological biblical dictionary of Hebrew in these different Bible study tools to look up the words in their original language in the original meaning of those words in the original language so that I don't get somebody's interpretation. Of what God said? They know exactly. What gets it? Again. I totally get and I I already talked about that before I remember talking about this I wanted to add netflix because I know someone out there listening to. Same woodworker the Bible is you teach on it and it's it's. Enough I'M GONNA have you delve into that a little bit? Is Why the? Game Dangerous? While it was the it was the I speak English. Right. So it was the first. Language, I mean, it's the first translation into the English language the King James Bible. Even, though it's impossible to change to translate the Bible. Word for word from Greek from Hebrew to English, because there are some Hebrew words for which are no English words by. The new, testament was written in. Greek because Alexander the Great had taken over the world and Helen is the world of made Greek, the worldwide language, the one world language. and. So the New Testament was written in. Greek. There are some Greek words for with their English equivalents. and so. I use the King James. Because the it's. Laid. From. A more accurate original text. So the original text. I'm not going to go into great detail. The original affects the King James King James. Is translated from is called the Texas Texas receptors. Which means the received text tax authorized received text. The translation with an IV, some of these other translations translated from what's known as the West cotton. Hort? which was corrupted translation. Corrupted from the standpoint that. They use. Some of the same terms to describe Christ and Satan for instance. In the West Cotton Hort it says that a young woman shall conceive and bring forth a son. But in Texas receptors said Virgin shall conceive and bring forth a son will you can be a young woman and not be a virgin or you version be a young woman So so to me. If you're starting with. A text that is. Corrupted and I believe the Wisconsin I mean I believe the Wisconsin is corrupted. Then when you translated in English, you're going to have not just a mistranslation but you're gonNa have things that you don't have the Bible saying things. The Bible never intended to say the other reason is because Satan is a master changing words. Changing the meaning of words and what Satan has done from the beginning of time. Is He has used. God's word out of context to confuse people, and so that's why I people will say. Yeah. But but the King James Versions too hard to understand and my question for people who say that is always win making something easier make it better. That right there. I asked him that question everybody because I wanted to give you a reason to life listened to bow success secrets. The way he does broke that down is what you get. We listen to his podcast. Montella one before we go to this podcast. You can find it on I tunes or. Google play or wherever you find your podcast.

So guess what guys it is time now for pod quest pod quest. Hike with all of your loved the segment, some of you always have questions for pod question I. Appreciate you so much podcast is basically the segment will allow you podcast and our audience to ask questions from our guests and for me about podcasting about what you may be looking to do some of the issues that you may be facing. We let you bring them up on pod quest here so podcast today, it's a question for Mr Eric Twigs Eric with one of our guests and he talked about productivity. He does pipe a COUPLA. He does podcast himself and he'll he'll just pop up on on any time. He wants to go podcasts I love Eric, and he's also a graduate of Hampton University like myself would a question for Eric, and five is how do you maintain work schedule with the PODCAST? And, that's a great question. So we put it to Airi`Q. And one of Eric's answers is that You have to plan it. We have to schedule IT and I. Agree with you you have to put it down, write it on paper and stick to it yet schedule it. Of course, if you have a nine to five, you know when you have to be at your nine to five, you don't have to do a daily podcast. You don't even have to do a weekly podcast you can do a monthly podcast want to but. Of course, the more consistent you are the better. So people know it's coming once a month you better build up so that they know that once a month they wanNA listen to your podcast. If coming once a week same thing if it's coming barely you still want to promote that podcast but you have to schedule it may show your schedule your work at around your podcast and your podcast around your work you can do both. But you have to schedule a lot of people are trying to fly seat of their pants and do it, and by doing that, that's when they run into the problem I don't have time bull you have the time you just haven't made the time to do the podcast and to do the work, make the time trust me you have the time when your day your podcast does not have to be an hour long. It doesn't even have to be twenty minutes long. It could be a ten minute podcast a good friend. Shave. Brown who who's been show Shave Brown used to do a ten minute podcast. Before he became having nor he was doing a ten minute podcast every day it was building and he had people tuning in every day. So you can do the same thing I went to this to focus on together schedule and sticking to that schedule. Thank you, Eric, and thank you for the question. We appreciate that it's now time for the podcast profile.

Brian s arnold back. Another one people are here gene. Depressed nation procrastination. Yes you are the project and we want to slap thirty to your name. And here's how we're going to be today. We got very twin for your how you doing. My friend fantastic. Glad to be here the here. We are excited to get into this topic. Now you've got the title called five steps do five. Single steps to being progressively. But here's the entire title that he gave me a first so here. Here's the here's the shore full extended version inside the discipline of now into be oppressed and incheon. Mukhin make more money in more done more confidence in a lavar that so before we dive in. Please tell us who you are personally and professionally. Yes so. I'm eric twigs. I m your procrastination prevention partner. I'm the author of the discipline of now. And i'm the host of the thirty minute. Our podcast and do hell. I help entrepreneurs an executive leaders the beat procrastination so they can make more money. Get more done and feel more confident in on the personal front. I knew i did it backwards but on the personal front i am a husband. I am a father and the thing. I'm most proud of the family side. I think that's really the priority at the end of the day. Absolutely i totally totally agree with that so next. Can you tell us what your current project is that you were at the moment so my most current project is also the president of the what now movement and we. We help people to pivot right. Because i was talking to a lot of people that you they ran to a pandemic for example we had comedians. I would talk to a comedian. And they say. I can't go to the improv anymore. Everything is shutdown. So i'm just gonna wait until you back to normal thing to do. You wanna you wanna keep moving. You should be asking yourself what now right. And that's how we came up with a wet now moving. I'm the president. I've got to business partners and it really ties into my mission to overcome procrastination because we've helped people who are just waiting for things to get better now. They're pivoting now. They're focused on what they can do now to ask themselves the question. What now that. My latest my latest project. And we've got the what now university masterclass it's coming up. It's like a series of seven different masterclasses to help you to keep moving. I love it. I i always use that freeze after someone might go through a course of mine. Or course you go through the court so you read a book and you say what now because the action has some type of action has to take place after that right over. Sure i love. I love that movement awesome. So can you tell us before. We dive in to the procrastination being procrastination. What your daily routine is okay. So what i do is. Here's the most critical part of my routine the night before. I have a three by five card. And i write down the five critical things that i have to do for the following day and then so when i go to sleep now. My subconscious is working when i get into the following day. My priorities are the five critical things. That i know. I need to get done. And that really just clarifies. So i'm working on my five things. But i wake up. I always start with prayer and meditation just to make sure. I'm in a good positive state by have i go and i work out and exercise and then when i come back i'm ready. I'm talking in my day varies after that talking to clients. I'm doing coaching sessions. I'm writing but those things. I'm doing it all ties back to this little card. You ever seen it like when we're not in a pandemic if you ever see me. I've always got three by five card on me for that reason to help with my day to day. That's something that you just originally originally of yourself. That's something that you learned from someone else in the past. I've seen very asians from various mentors. But it's something that that really just helped me to prioritize. We talk about overcoming procrastination. I just find that the things that i write down and the important thing is the writing for me putting it in a phone isn't the same between when you're writing you carving it right from your brain and so i'm going through my day and i feel compelled to do those things that i put down as my priorities awesome. Okay great. so let's. Let's go ahead now eric. Let's dive right in to this five. Step plan discipline of now. How do we be procrastination. Go carre so. This is based off of my book. I've got a model that i created in. The model is based off of the twenty eight thousand plus coaching sessions. That i've done with entrepreneurs and executive leaders so as a five step plan. I started going over at around chapter seven in the book. Where give you the overview and then we get into it in a back half so the first step in the five. Step plan to be procrastination. It's all about your attitude so it's a pyramid and at the bottom of the pyramid. The foundation of the pyramid is your attitude because your attitude is the foundation of your success and the the studies show that for the typical person. Eighty percent of their mental thoughts in self talk is negative. You really have to address your attitude and if you're if you're so pessimistic. You're more likely to procrastinate so you need to so we have this habit. We have this negative habit of just thinking about negativity and thinking of the glass half empty so the best way to overcome bad habit is to replace it with a better one and the better habit is focusing on gratitude so really being intentional about what you what you're grateful for and focusing on so you attitude is critical and then also starting with your wins so people that coach i have them. Tell me they're wins the first thing we're gonna talk about the thing that are going. Well you victory your successes because it's so important first key you really have to check your attitude in the book. I go and much deeper as far as other things that are related to the attitude. That's number one number. Two is awareness bright awareness and i talked to people who say oh eric. I always procrastinate procrastinate all the time that's not true i have yet to meet anyone. Ever who just always procrastinates comes to everything. Certain thing like the person that thinks they're chronic procrastinator. When it comes to something with their kids they're right on it. So you keeping is you need to be aware of your patterns if it takes writing down what you're doing from time to time but you need to be aware and you'll find that there are certain patterns for a lot of people they procrastinate. One is a they just. They just don't like doing it. Deep is not pleasant to them. They don't like to do something that's unpleasant. they'll just put it off. So so that's you need to figure out what are your patterns and some people procrastinate when they're going toward something that's aspirational something going to move them forward. Maybe the big reason tation and he started listening to the negative voices inside and then from other people. So you so really. You need to be aware and you also need to be aware of your power times right so you. Some people are morning people. You have energy first thing in the morning. Some people are night owls but the key is you need to schedule your high priority activities during the time of day. When you have the most energy i like how you say pattern. 'cause i i asked one of my big key key words because when i'm driving i can tell the people that are dragging in front of the whole groups could be slow in my way. Could you pass this guy you know your patterns and you can see it right away right. You don't have to the second guessed that or whatever is obvious. What's your patterns are. If you're really if you really are you say true to yourself. Your patterns are right. I guess you're seeing write them down. Make sure that record track correct. Yes yeah if it helps a mentor. Coach semi aware of your blind spots like when i coach people that again. There's pads i i know. Turn things that some of my clients. Just don't want to do. it is necessary. They don't wanna do it. They don't like to do it so i know then. I know some people when they're afraid of something. They're going to procrastinate and me knowing them. I'll does ask i'll say okay. What are you afraid of. And then it comes out and wants to get it out. We address it now. We can move on. I like that. Those are the two so far. Let me know when you're ready to continue. Let's go let's give so as we've talked about the attitude. We talked about awareness so number. Three steps three is about animation. And that's really about energy right if you think about if you look back at the time but you're procrastinating. It's usually some type of entity cycle. You really not feeling you're feeling like you energy down and if you look at it like a lot of indiscretions happen on fridays and the reason for that we go onto the you week and a lot of you. Get off of your priorities. You're you're more likely to procrastinate but so you need to be aware of how important energy is and so you need to be doing things that produce energy. You need to think about the foods that you're eating. You need to think about having a consistent exercise routine. That's why you'll find that. Most high earners in high achievers consistent workout routine because they know it gives them more energy and they'll start to feel better and you also need to understand the need for recovery. okay. I just can't support work. You need to be able to manage transitions in know that you need recovery a even if it's something as simple as taking a nap like lamm. I'm the big fan of naps of england and so like my energy cycle. I'm an early morning person. But i find when i take a nap and then had to go do a podcast. It's like my energy cycle. Starts over again. I take a nap and so again. But it's all about that. An asian and focusing your energies in a good place. Do you need a multivitamin coletta people. It's rest it's making sure you're working out and just being aware of those things. So you're you're not a proponent of going fortune our days do whatever it takes. Were working to you drop. That's not your thing now. I think the difference between being active and being effective right. So i think even if you have to work a long day at good to be aware of your energy and good to unplug from time to time right even if you're not even if you don't take a nap if it's just getting away for thirty minutes forty five minutes. Just allow your mind to to relax. If if you notice. I know for myself like my creative energy my creative juices on another level after i take a vacation and go take a vacation. I'm just hanging out with the family. I'm naturally thinking about things. Like i normally when i come back i just had this influx of ideas Because again it's all about that recovery and understanding how transitions work but energy is so important absolutely awesome. That's three okay. So we've talked about attitude. Awareness animation next is automation right and i wish someone would have told me this early in my career right there just because something needs to be done. It doesn't mean that you need to do it right. So can you set up systems. Can you automate things so that certain things are getting done without you having to do it because the ideal goal especially if you're an entrepreneur you should be operating in your zone of genius. Ideally you're spending the majority of your time doing the things that are in your area of genius. It could be writing. It could be speaking. It could be coaching but if probably not administrative tasks like most level entrepreneur. That's not there now. The administrative tasks they still need to be done and bad things can happen if you just put them off right so it's about. Can you automate certain things. It just as simple as getting a virtual assistant it could be that and a lot of people are are overwhelmed with email for example. So could it be as simple as setting up the automated files in your emails or certain email just flow right to your folders that you don't even have the process it my procrastination. Just out of pure exhaustion or mundane task. Just you just you. Just don't the point for the worst phrase ever known to man you feel like it because you you do it so often right right right. I mean you're you're touching so many things so there's something it's called decision fatigue and so you willpower and it's like a muscle and the more you have to make these decisions the less of it. You have why it's good to set up these systems where you don't have to touch these things if anybody is listening and you work in an office environment and you wanna same email and you have those people to reply all to every email now. You get these emails in your inbox so you can take. You can take reply. All ron and chris special folder him so he sends an email. He goes to special folder. And you can take a look this up you need to read you read that you can delete it so but that's just an example but definitely be thinking about how i can automate my life so that things are getting done without me. Having to touch everything. Gotcha gotcha this for the first step to be beating. Procrastination activity and i put that at the top of our pyramid. Because if you really want to get to the top you have to take action and then there's just no way you can get your goal poster. Your vision board. You can sit around being funny and all of that but at some point you have to do something right right so wet now and it's all about taking action but it's about taking the right action. That's eight area. We've all heard of the eighty twenty principle and really is a twenty percent of the things you're doing are getting eighty percent of your result though it's about figuring out what are those priorities and focusing their. I love it okay. So dust for five done so will will some of that. Some some up again. Leader sean. Joe but talk to us about getting things done over time as opposed to last minute safe. You have an accountability partner and you like just going to for next week. We have one task that you're going to do the main task you're going to have done and then you wait to the last minute just to put it up to criminal in there before you like. Where the nighttime trying to do this. How why is they ineffective to you. As i went to your book. A little bit was ineffective for entrepreneur. So so here's the thing we. We are bad at predicting how long things really take right. We assume best case scenario we assume that nothing is ever going to go wrong and so it the challenge one of the many challenges with waiting until the last minute you put yourself at. You can become a victim. Circumstances is something happens that your computer crashes that day printers network. What whatever if you wait until the last minute is going to be tough to recover from that as opposed if you start early in some happens you get enough time. I mean it's just like people that you live fifteen minutes from your intended destination. Leave in fifteen minutes. You're not anticipated is going to be traffic or it's going to be raining or anything like that. Yeah there's there's there's a there's a pleasantness say when you know you've done everything early you know. Everything's ready to go that the day before two. Today's before you're like almost set. There's a weight off your off your mind. The stress has gone so they're trying to scramble. I wish people could really understand the emotions of that. Because so so speech that what emotions come about when people wait and hesitate hesitate. H h like an talk about the emotion. Emotional stress on this of this procrastination. Yeah baby comes as a like a stress cycle right. So let's say you find out there's something that's do so you're feeling anxious about that and then you put it off and then as the days are getting closer. You're feeling anxious about the. Maybe it's a presentation but now you feeling even worse. Because the deadlines coming up in your ear focused more on the clock then you are on quality and yeah. It just becomes a stressful situation. Okay so i've just started to coin a phrased it was talked about but i call it. Comparison syndrome we have people look at somebody else's work some someone that they look up to the model in they'll procrastinate because they want to make sure that their work is just as perfect as that person that they're looking at so they'll wait to try to tweak. It tree can make it better and better. Can you tell you. Tell the people how dangerous this is to try to be so perfect in the beginning and then things just don't get done. Here's the key. And this is something that i had to figure out and really this is the part of the show. You really need to lean in on. Can't allow perfect to become the enemy of progress. I decided yeah. You can't allow perfect to become the enemy of progress. You have to focus on okay. What's the next step. You're not gonna always have everything totally figured out when you move forward and then the other thing you mentioned if you ever just said okay what can i do to feel bad about myself star hearing that can accomplish that somebody else and say oh my goodness but here's the challenge though but that's not necessarily an apples to apples comparison one. That person could have been doing this for thirty years. Maybe doing it for four months true. You can't expect that your work is going to be equivalent to that person and the other thing is you have no idea. Would that person is dealing with true and may have challenges. That have you eight. He'd be like oh. I feel better about myself now. You don't see the whole picture. You're only seeing the front stage. You don't see what's going on what it took to get to that point or the sacrifices that person had to make so that's definitely that if you wanna come if somebody wants to make a comparison compare yesterday's version of yourself. today's version. I like to ally that so. Do you think people's expectations are too high. When they start so they wait. Wait they feel like maybe something in the past has caused them to be like. This isn't gonna work anyway. So i'm i'm going to wait until i figure it out in that one stores still stood up projections thing but they they've had things in the past that didn't work out so now this makes them wait in linger because they had no good expectations for to be to be any better. They won want high expectations. But they feel like you know is just not going to get there. Somebody say that. I think sometimes we don't look at look at the path of the right perspective. We're not thinking about okay. What can i learn from this. And that's something wear mentors and coaches can help you. Because the key is everybody had setbacks. And everybody's head things they just haven't worked out especially people that steph started companies. I mean i years of just they'd use a failure that you don't really see you see them now when they've got the this excess but they learned the difference is that they learn from the failures and really the only failure is the failure to continue that the failure to move forward. So i i do. I think you're right though. I think people they look at it and they say fail with this or this didn't work out so yeah i'm sure this isn't going to work out either. Get learning process. Negative negative connotations. I think like you said having their daily routine where you're like affirmations of something that you're watching something to get you into into the right attitude that you say is the foundation of each day correct. Oh yeah so. Far would ask the typical person. Hey tell me everything that went wrong yesterday from this customer and oh man yeah traffic but when i ask people tell me about your wins. The silence media crickets. Because we're so focused on fixing if you're not even business. You're so focused. On problems solving problems overcoming these things so but what i find the people like i have people. They start to wind log. Said he'd take like a sheet of paper and they're going through their day. They're right now. The positive things they observe in still more wins. You write down the more winds you'll have to right there with great stuff man. Okay i have one last question for this has been awesome. So far bro. Awesome so one last question in excess of all of my guests. Go up this people listening to you. The watching you and they love which would which you're bringing to the table and they want to be a mentor teacher. A coach to help people with their procrastination with their with their lifestyles. Make them better. Can you tell them in your own words how they can become an authority in this space. I would say fine number one. Find mentors fine people. Who have the result that you want of if it's an on procrastination or productivity find people and these can be mentors that you you watch. Listen to their podcasts. You can read their books and just basically see what you can learn and start practicing it naturally keep you. Don't be a lone ranger that that will be the biggest advice. I would have find. Mentors mentor that you can meet with in person mentors that you can study if you can read their autobiographies the coming the study. Show that if you in any niche if you read three or more books on that topic you actually no more than seventy five percent of the people that are actually within your niche. So i would encourage you to steady. Studied the people that have the results that you want in that particular area if procrastination if it's whatever it is so that would be my vice. You wanna be a mentor. You want to be able to help. Someone else does awesome perfect. That's perfect bro. So i have no more questions. Let's come up with some of the game.
