Carve Out Some YOU Time
"Important thing you can do for yourself is to carve out some time just for you and it's that time when you're supposed to be working and you cheat and you start googling things. I'm not talking about that time. I'm talking about carving out a genuine time saying thirty minutes. That is going to be time for me to have a cup of tea and journal not at night. I mean during the day why because we used to have time for our thoughts. When you're walking into the office when you do you know when you were you know. Having a lunch break you could take a stroll but now that time is sort of just gone because now your lunch break you to make sure people have and maybe homeschooling as well and you know all of these different things so finding that thirty minutes minutes even to spend time with yourself. Maybe it's first thing in the morning when you're against super energized to really spend time on you now i can tell you what to fill that time with if it was up to me. I'd be like yeah. Plan your goals. Make sure you're connecting with people. That can really help you. Create the right but that time is your time if you just want to sit that and breathe in and out and do nothing. It's completely up to you but the most important thing is in order for you to feel energized daily. You need that time. One of the this comes from something that i learned from dance dance talks about how our free time arrest time. Everybody always treats it like it's a reward. You once i do. Will this hard work then. I can rest. But dan says actually. It's the rest time that allows you to do your work so once you've rested then you can do great work not once done great work then. I can messed because that's just sort of shattered. But if you look at it at refueling energizing rejuvenating yourself just by carving out that time feed my only advice in terms of you time is. Don't use it to take information like news or something. Negative really use. It took for something that will give you energy. Even if it's the watching something funny so you can laugh for what something that gives you positive energy and leaves you feeling alive. Maybe don's and just really do something for you in that
Andrei Vasilevskiy delivers consecutive shutouts, Lightning top Stars 2-0
"Vasilevskiy was once again dominant. He stopped all 20 shots He faced supposed to shut out in his second straight start and earn his second shutout overall this season that earned him the first star of the week in the NHL. Is now posted shut outs and back to back starts five times in his career, and he's gone seven consecutive periods without allowing a goal. When you talk about the advantage the Lightning has in net every game. It's pretty wide, especially in this division. Vasilevskiy is head and shoulders better than everyone else. Ben Bishop might have a say in that, but he's injured right now for the stars Brian and Blam from Sun Sports and My partner for The Last Call, which is presented by Jack Daniels told Dave Michigan and me on power lunch yesterday. That vast Celeski has grown so much as a netminder. He's a machine. He really s vasilevskiy. That really interesting character. And, of course, is a hockey player. He's very quiet with us. Naturally it apparently he's a real riot with the players, you know, on practice, days and days in between got a great sense of humor. But he is all business. When he shows up first thing in the morning, you talk to other players and go. You just leave Vasi to himself. He's he's already in that zone. He's got the body for it. It's 63 and well over £200. He's got the long legs and long arms. You know, we're talking about circuits have an experience exactly the same thing of front, John Goaltending coach talked about it recently saying that you know, vastly going all the way and winning the cup. It solidifies everything that they've talked about all the way along How your off season training regiment right through to the very last save in Game six against Dallas to win the Stanley Cup. Your gold center. Oftentimes is your best penalty killer and the Lightning had to kill off six power place from the stars, and that was big, according to egg blam, and he loved what he saw. Thought Alex Killorn had some sequences. I would point him out, especially. I thought he was incredible. He had four if not five. Individual plays where he just dismantled their attack. Turned the pack over and either shot out of the zone himself or made availability for somebody else that he was playing with the get the park and get it down. But they all were in great sequence when the pressure when not to That was a big part of the game and then getting on the scoreboard first two now, But Andre, polite, just has an affinity for that, And then he starts on time all the time. And that's always a big deal. Doesn't matter who you're playing. Whether it's Dallas and the team you played in the Stanley Cup finals or the last place team, Callie always seems to start on time and a that gives you a big advantage.
Are we going to meet our vaccination target or what?
"Hello this is karina. Cost a daily podcast. All about the coronavirus. I'm health reported teigen thailand physician and journalists dr norman swan. It's wednesday the third of march and norman. We're already more than a week into our vaccine. Roll out here in australia. Which makes us old hands at it now but there were reports over the past few days. That strategy hasn't quite met the targets that i was expecting to in terms of numbers. Vaccinations delivered in this first week. And we've got a pretty big target for october as being sort of the end of the roll out the end of the first big sizes of the rollout. What are some of the issues that have cropped up. I mean it's such early days. It feels a little unfair to stop critiquing the performance when we're on the awakened but what are some of the issues that have been identified as maybe slowing us down a bit. So far rove is clearly been a major cities of hiccups with the commonwealth rollout in aged care. As we've been saying in current cast in fact the main game is boorda. Workers airport workers flight crew and hotel quarantine workers and what we should be doing but we're not as their families in households. So that's the main game securing our borders. And doing that hyper quickly. And you've really got to do that with the vaccine because it's going to take you twelve weeks to complete it with the astra and it's not going to be as good coverage with the with the new variant possibility so there's been a cold up in aged care because the commonwealth doesn't run anything have his own services therefore they've got a contract they probably should have contracted it to the states. But they've going into private providers and been cups which have been well publicized so it's to take the commonwealth a bit of time to get their act together and also some of the states have been a little bit slow so this combination of supply of scene. But also as marion kane or imply. Just today the bookings haven't gone quite as quickly as they imagined. And they could cope with more bookings. And i think there's been a hint of that in some other jurisdictions so people have got to come forward when they're booked and have that but around the world there has been a problem with people. Not turning up for bookings people don't turn up for their appointments and that means that you have a system in place where you've got people on standby people that you can take a. We've got jobs over. can you. At five o'clock in unexpectedly get your vaccine. So we saw we had the new south wales primary gladys and yesterday criticizing the maybe lack of communication between the states and federal government. Is there improvements. That could be made there. Probably and the minister of sought yesterday to have a press conference which is probably in part induced. By the new south wales premier having criticized the federal government for not being clear with the doses. And how they're going to arrive. I mean i think some of the surprise here is that if i had a long time to develop this. And it's still not clear how the next phases are going to be rolled out how people are going to be told what booking system is going to be like. Gp is still not clear how they're going to work into it. They've had their letter saying they've been accepted as a as a center for you know the practice to deliver vaccines but even then the ph primary health. Networks are often not clear whether or not the four thousand six hundred practices are indeed the ones that will end up doing it. So there's a fair bit of uncertainty another area of uncertainties that third pretty good administration stopping doctors commenting on the relative efficacy of vaccines. Because they're calling it. Advertising saying the vaccine come to my practice sits behind that there's a lot influx. We'll get our act together. We're good immunizing country. People will come. Forward is just that. We don't want to lose momentum.

A production of iheartradio good morning. This is laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to think of progress. When we're talking about relationships rather than basic tasks progress is motivational sadly the converse of that is also true when progress is less obvious. It can be hard to feel motivated. Fortunately there's some ways to recreate a sense of progress no matter what kind of work we're talking about. Today's tip comes out of a question. I got from a before breakfast listener. Who had recently left her job partly to spend more time caring for her daughter who is on the autism spectrum. The listener noted that her daughter was needing to interact with people more and this was definitely challenging. She wrote she needs more support to cope with. How exhausting elementary school is. The listener was also studying to pursue a new career as chaplain. All of these are worthy endeavors. But as she noted. I'm so used to measuring valuing my time by tasks finished. Parenting and researching are both activities. That are not task oriented. I find myself struggling to measure my progress and feeling unaccomplished. after lots of time well spent. Do you have any tips. For how to measure time and progress in these non task oriented settings. It's a good question. The nature of parenting or for that matter being chaplain is to spend a lot of time with people simply being available to them. The quantity of time is a key part of the job and while we can track time. And i recommend checking time. The outcome of being available is not always clear. One of the things that people who decide to be fulltime parents most struggle with is this transition from turning in a report at the end of the day to getting to the end of the day and wondering what actually got done. This can make it hard to stay motivated. But i think we can create concrete tasks within these sorts of time that allow us to feel a sense of progress and motivation. Yep it's quality time within the quantity time. I've been thinking about this a lot lately as all five of my children have been home with me for the past two months. I know that theoretically this extra time together can allow us to deepen our relationships but so much of the time is just managing. Chaos heaping the five year old from breaking things in between feeding the baby and keeping the other children from hurting each other so to keep my sanity. I've come up with distinct projects. Each of us can do together. I'm sure that simply spending time together is more important in the long run but keeping mom motivated is important too. So we've ordered a bunch of legos. I recently finished a whole rocket launching the ten year old plus a farm set with the five year old. My twelve year old has become my writing accountability partner. He's writing a novel and we check in with each other. On how many words we've done and our creative projects my eight year old daughter and i are undertaking a grownup dollhouse project. Not for playing in for building and enjoying the miniature scenes even the baby can have some projects. We've been reading through all the old issues of baby bug magazine that kept from previous children. I know that it doesn't particularly matter that i'm reading. A child focused magazine versus the dictionary with the baby. But it makes mom feel better that yes. I read through two issues today. And i will do to issues tomorrow and so forth if you likewise are looking for ways to stay motivated and relationship work you might try setting some particular tasks that you can do and then celebrate completion. A chaplain for instance might set goals for numbers and types of visits. Follow in particular passages to read or spiritual exercises to do when it feels appropriate. Sure the main point is being there and listening and offering comfort but we can create tasks for ourselves within that our listener who wants to support her daughter with social interaction might set goals for how to handle welcoming her home from school or sending her off to school or planning activities on the weekends that might gently introduce certain social interactions. She can note her progress and celebrate what she's done quantity and quality. Time are often presented as being in opposition but really relationships are made up of both. A lot of the real work is done in the quantity but the quality part keeps us motivated. And that's a good and it's in the meantime this is laura. Thanks for listening.

Who Needs the Europa League Title Most?
"Here's your to win. The europa league manchester united installed his early favorites. Actually co-favorites with spurs english teams. One two three even arsenal getting a better odds to in the euro league van c milan. Let's focus in on those three english clubs specifically their managers. Craig i'll start with you. Which is three need to win the europa league. Most i suppose seventy one hundred in milan because the book is going through. That could be the only reason i passed. Thank josiah marines. When there's the most. Because i think he's the mine under most pressure. His league possession at moment stinks the team's performances have been pretty rotten in terms of on the eye on the country mile off the top four. At one point the talk was others team in the title race and so he needs to deliver something otherwise. He's under severe pressure. I mean you could say well attack. The does he's got cut behind them transition to ask no. I think he's pretty safe there and they talk for. There's no doubt about so. I actually think marinas the mon- needs it. The most stevie you agree they still got a shot at hardware in the league cup final. They got a shot at top six. Maybe an outside shot at top four spurs really. Need this most absolutely think so. Yeah arsenal. yeah we think point lead over you. He's he's got an f. e. cop behind them less than two months ago so he's fine creek said during transition marino. Another honda is is is not in my opinion going to be in the top four. That's why he was brought and it wasn't brought in to do anything else so it's important that he does produced. So we're because that will deflect away from what has jaw was and the premier league and unfortunately for him yes. He's a the problem is they'll position gsa city who nobody wants to face. So i'm one hundred percent we create. This is absolutely marino. And tom mark from the manchester united perspective. Just how important is this to jar. His record and cup. Tournaments is well documented over four in finals. Big without first trophy be. I think it needs to win one soon. Because it's now four years when united trophy on a long time and they always have the opportunity in the kaaba cup of one. One that need is more than tottenham because five years at the champions league. The asked really really the champions football. I it's sick of being semi-finalists are knocking on the door. They're not gonna win the primarily this season to trophies. This is man united. We're talking about. We're talking about the process itself alongside by munich real madrid barcelona as one of the biggest club in the world. The biggest clubs in the world win trophies and is now four years since one. United one one-stroke trophy with the minor the minor cops. Let's be honest. The league company europa league in two thousand seventeen. They haven't won a big trophy since whilst explosion retired. Let's be honest. The two thousand thirteen primarily because even fa co-ops and the von hall didn't really count towards the biggest trophy so united. Need over the start winning again. And i think social really needs it but if he doesn't win a trophy this season i don't think it'll be the end of their old firm. I think you'll still be there. But i do think the to kick on become this team is going to challenge for the majors. They have to win something. So craig no no i just think off the bucket marks point that yet yeah financially obstacle. But we're talking about modules marina for the reasons that steve and i say and and say well and it's a big f because it's not you know some good teams in there. They say it was a year in the league and we lost hurricane and we will see all these excuses. You'll save won the europa league a nuts champions league football because that's the carrot dangled for when the euro league note from a united perspective. As augie said you know when you're polite for them and their historical standpoint is neither here in the last good marino himself. He delivered second-place mandated. Emily he delivered the gop league undesirable cup. So they've done recently. They really need to be the primarily title at least go neck and neck all the way until publiz reasons you take a trophy as a manager and you would take if you united but really the dining a much. Bigger table than the europa league
Twitch's Recent Sports Properties Show Longterm Plan for the Platform
"On Sports properties and recently we've seen big moves towards that goal. I'm a dream since the Esports minute from E Sports Network, which is of course the home for Esports now will always be the platforms origination. But clearly the platform has been evolving firstly. There is a massive rise in just chatting as a category and in a lot more casual games and politicians using the platform. So there's that Evolution but there's also the evolution towards traditional Sports and we've seen this as well during the time when Twitches found Newfound competition, there are major leagues and major creators that are moving off platform over the last two years while the mixer experiment Network YouTube live has snatched up the CDL and o w l will also grabbing some big streamers in the process, but I honestly don't think twitch really cares that much they still are the dominant force in the mark. And command the largest audiences plus they have these grander plans. This isn't really a super controversial take twitch has been experimenting with more traditional sports events on the platform for the last few years. Most notably Thursday football games Coast trained with creators from the last few weeks two pieces of news have shown Twitches interest in traditional Sports and how it's continuing one was FIBA and the other was the kickoff of the fan control football game. Let's start with viva viva is the international basketball association the Federation dial international basketball amateur is where the FIBA acronym came from and now it's just the international basketball association today. They signed a multi-year deal with twitch people as far away from the NBA when it comes to viewership or relevance, but it does around the qualifying tournament for basketball at the Olympics as well as the bass World Cup and the World Cup and Hoops is definitely not the same as the World Cup in soccer, but it's still an important Sports property as part of the deal with twitch feeble broadcast 600 hours of basketball games on Twitch every year wage. Also be lighting up deals with Co streamers and creating more interactivity during broadcasts that interactivity is what twitch could offer and is also makes the fan control Football League pretty unique. The FCF is a new property that is not a few weeks on Twitch to pretty good viewership. It's cool because fans call the plays live during the game literally they vote on them and then the team runs them fans also have control over branding and player decision as well. The FCF utilizes Twitches ability for interactivity to basically play Madden in real life. Even Johnny Manziel is in the league for now. These are basically see tears Sports properties, but they show a month for twitch going forward the next time the meteorites come up for one of the major sports leagues Twitches definitely going to be having discussions. They've already cut in by having some of the NFL
Interview With Kfir Yeshayahu
"Our guest. Today is kafir yahoo. Who's the senior vice president of products. Advair atone so high kefir on. Thanks so much for joining us today. One it's gonna be with you today the We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at their tone of course so under the product invade on of busy building. I will which is the alternative system for high as well as accompanying tools to really solve some of the toughest problems in adoption today. In general one of those challenges that were focused on is open holder tising. Ai which is a fascinating topic for me. Having started with data science many many years ago. I've seen how data science was done in some of the most sophisticated data organizations in the world back in the israeli intelligence community. And i've been living the sort of evolution mini revolutions fe. I ever since in loud companies like microsoft and has of groups in the and others before joining the verizon i managed devops oriented boorda in. Aws the amazon cloud so my perspective on 'em at all is coming from both sides from day iside and Devops and now. I'm saying that the dan's in the space who both the perspective of on itself. And i don't own business units as well as Without many customers of the iowa who are in various stages of the junk. That's really very insightful. Because we've been definitely spending a lot of time talking about machine learning operations. Emily obstinate model management. And all these things that have you have to deal with once. The model is as building. People tend to think of of sort of all the work that has to go into training a model making the model happen which is definitely a lot of work. No doubt about it especially even the data preparation even before even build the model right. That's a lot of work but now that you know these models are out there in the wild in in production people are realizing the challenges of keeping these models relevant and high performance. And just doing what they're supposed to be doing. So maybe you could talk to us about what you see. Some organizational challenges as they tried to bring machine models into production of course so different studies and surveys though talking about some little between fifty to ninety two why blamed but fifty two nine hundred projects. Don't actually make it phone. Put that to production regardless of where you fall in the way. It's a pretty sad ratio. Now what makes it even wolves. Is that a project. Take a long time to demand often six months to a year. And you know they'll be walked by Most expensive in the organization we invade have experienced the same thing in the past the first day i projects and applications developed by our business units to literally month to complete. Now we're looking at fox and the stakes were sometimes too high to even start. The border. don't going directly a question about challenges until recently. A lot of the buzz in the industry was about talent shouted. I think this issue is is going away. The market is is balancing itself and good talent is coming from all sorts of different defections into the will. it did not cheap way more accessible than before. The challenges didn't have shifted in my opinion from talent gaps to both insistent cups. And i'll try to gonna show that in four different buckets. So one of them is is portions. How do i estimate the ally often. Ai project how do i define the budget endgame. That's very different than than traditional software projects. Why d- projects the second bucket is integration applications and and solutions in genoa. Now this may sound of sideways from from but it's out of the whole challenge of production izing. How with to play with the application. This is interesting for me especially from extent point because naive. Boches don't always walk because of the nature of the modern. They'll give you one of many examples. Ai models often produce results with degrees eleven of confidence.
Bell close to Elliott on Road Courses
"Nascar cup series road course racing from the infield at daytona and this thing was amazing and we have another first time winner. Christopher bell crosses the line i picks up his very first career cup series win and number twenty car and he's essentially now locked into the playoffs as well as the all star race at texas to win my first race center. Of course is you know. I didn't expect that to happen now. And i've always had a tremendous amount of respect for the guys that are racing because it's a showcases talent artists especially just surreal to be as competitive as we were. Today i felt like delegates kind of. We're pretty well there. So that was really cool. Chases the benchmark for racing at the moment. And i feel like we're we're both my group is close. Say we're i mean my group might receive my arm honestly able to stay home and the myself for doing that because it's hard to do and especially at a record sri have so many heavy braking zones and ariza plenty of opportunities to make a mistake. But that i would. I would say that this was do my first julia bowl winner. Ride been in that position so many times and i was anxious nervous and then just focusing on it so that it was. It was definitely there but i was thinking that i was able to often mistake
Overwatch League Releases New Format, Schedule for 2021
"Quite a few changes for the league that likely at the toughest twenty-twenty seeing multiple players retire in entire roster is being dropped to cut costs and stagnant viewership while the o w l sister lead. The CDL has actually just kicked off the o w l won't start up until April 16th the goal I think was way out ahead of the covid-19 demek and what we won't be entirely Out of the Woods by April things are actually trending pretty quickly in the right direction. Thank God still the owner of the wall is putting forth a hybrid format that can be played online or in physical locations first off instead of a regular season format like traditional Sports b o w l will be following the CDL into a more tournament based regular-season structure. The structure will feature three weeks of qualifiers, then a mid-season tournament repeated 4 times. So to make that more clear the weekends of April 16th, April 23rd, and April 29th will be the first qualifiers then the first name Tournament will be the main melee on May 7th that schedule repeats through May June July and August. Each tournament has kind of a silly name may may lay is fine. Even if it's a little bit hard to say. Some people might assume to Smash Bros event. There's also the summer Showdown and the countdown cup which are both solid alliterations will give you that but they really Force the alliteration with the June just like white jesting. I don't think it makes sense names aside. This format will likely be easier to follow for fans on YouTube you sports events do well when they crowned some sort of champion at the end of it. Only League of Legends has really been successful creating a regular season format in Esports the c d l o w l and even our LCS have all abandoned their attempts to do so in the last one or two years this year will also see three Western o w l teams competed in Asia the Valiant fusion and New York Excelsior are all moving operations to Asia for this year that brings the divisions to 8 Eastern teams and 12 Western ones.

"Tip is about some smart things to stash in your car so that all trips or weights are more comfortable unless you've lived in a few big cities if you've got a commute or kids or both. You probably spend a fair amount of time in your car. I used to think. I didn't a work from home and my kids. Schools are less than ten minutes away. But then i started tracking my time and realized. Wow all this short trips add up. That's one reason. I started the before breakfast. Podcast i wanted to give people something they could get through on a short trip anyway. After my recent episode on using a gift cards i got a note from a listener named april. She wrote that. I kept ending up at target or cvs or some other store on an errand and realizing i didn't have the gift card or running home for an in and out gift card before we made a rare impromptu gift card stopped for dinner so one day last summer i grabbed a credit card wallet. I had put all of the gift cards. I might use outside the house in it. Then put it in my glove compartment now. If april needs to stop by target she can just reach in there and grab the cart. This got me thinking of all the other things that it's wise to keep in the car. I don't think it's a coincidence that my family has gotten sick less frequently since we started keeping bottles of hand sanitizer in the cup holders of our cars. We also keep some paper towels for the inevitable messes and small garbage container in our family minivan. There's a bottle of water or to hydration emergencies. Usually some granola bars sunscreen for sunny days. An umbrella for rainy ones. I keep a handful of quarters. In case i'm somewhere with old fashioned parking meters. I thought these were pretty smart ideas. Then i asked my twitter followers about their car. Stashes and i realized. I'm pretty much rookie level when it comes to preparedness the most common out of the box idea. People mentioned a big towel is as useful for messes as paper towels. The can also be used for drying off anyone who has wet or putting under anyone who has wet for whatever reason that wetness has happened. A large towel also enables an impromptu picnic. Or if you need to be outside can be wrapped around someone who is cold. A few people mentioned garbage bags. These are useful for the inevitable. Garbage that builds up and that people forget to cart out of the car but can also make reasonable ponchos first downpour. That said actual punches aren't that expensive either. Might be worth keeping around a first aid kit or at least band. Aids is never a bad idea. People with teenagers mentioned the importance of extra phone chargers you're young passengers might need to restore their batteries. So they can text each other across the back seat of course not all. entertainment must be electronic. One person mentioned book of mad libs another suggested. A book of crossword puzzles both require pen. So be sure to have that to either of those or a sticker book for little kids can provide a lot of entertainment for a small amount of car volume. A few people mentioned frisbees and april. Who wrote in with the gift card hack mentioned that she kept a deflated beach ball in the car so she and her family could bat ball around if they found themselves waiting somewhere like a sibling sports event with time to kill. Now that i'm back in the newborn stage people reminded me of the importance of extra clothes. An extra sweatshirt should suffice and helps with unexpected cold and finally extra socks cold feet make people miserable. And that's the last thing you need on a car trip. As i read through this list i realized that it sounds like a lot of stuff but the good news is that none of it takes up that much space. A small crate in the trunk could corral at all. And then you'll be ready for whatever life on the road throws a you. So what do you keep your car. I'm sure i'm forgetting something. Brilliant so let me know what it is at before breakfast.

Good morning this is laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about why and how. You should build reflective time into your schedule. I find time as consciously chosen moments when you pause and think about your life. You think about what you've done with your time and what you'd like to do with your time and sure people wind up ruminating unintentionally those moments at two am when your thoughts are spinning about something regretted or dreaded. But i'm talking about something more intentional which generally involves planning journaling for those with the more spiritual bent. Meditating or praying in my research. I found that choosing to carve out these moments is associated with feeling like you have more time for my book off the clock. I had nine hundred busy. People track their time for a day. I asked questions about how they felt about their time. I found the people with the most abundant perspective on time. Were highly likely to engage in these reflective activities whereas the people who felt most star for time we're likely to never engage in these activities and by the way it's not that the former group had more leisure time the rushed inherited sorts actually watched more tv and spent more time online. But if you think about it time keeps passing whether we think about how we spend it or not. We're all on canoes in the middle of a rushing river. Unless you pull yourself over to a calm spot. It's really hard to figure out how to direct our crafts through the current reflective moments. Give us a chance to do that. And so it turns out that spending discretionary time reflecting on life makes time feel more calm than using the same quantity of time to say. Peru's twitter so that's the why now let's get to the how the first approach and what will work best for. Most people is structural reflection. Doesn't need to take a ton of time but we do need cues to remind us to do it or else will just flip from one thing to the next longtime listeners. Know that. I like to plan my weeks on friday afternoons. Think this is a great time in general to think about the week that's just passed and the seven days or so to come. What needs to happen. What i like to see happen until you get in the habit it might help to set an alarm for certain time say three. Pm on friday. If that doesn't work because you're still stuck in a meeting set a backup time but spending a mere ten to fifteen minutes on this weekly planning will absolutely change your life then. You can build in smaller structural moments for reflection. I like to think through the next day as i'm ending the day before you can do this before you leave work or at night before bed. Think about what went right and wrong in the previous day. And what would you like to see happen in the coming. Twenty four hours. When can those things happen. Some people might prefer to start their days in reflective mode. If that's used set your alarm for ten minutes before you have to be up and use this time to read something uplifting or to set your intentions for the day between a weekly reflective time and smaller daily reflective times. You can start to feel a lot more calm. And then if you'd like to take things up a level you can try to find other reflective opportunities. Some people pray or meditate in the shower. It's time our minds. Tend to wander anyway so why not direct that wandering you can count your blessings while stuck in traffic and any bit of found time like while you're waiting for a phone call to start could be good for writing in a journal. The good news. Is that as you build in these reflective moments. Your relationship with time. We'll start to change. You'll start making more positive choices. You'll feel more like you are directing time rather than it directing you and you'll probably feel less rushed inherited. These are pretty amazing. Outcomes for what amounts to less than five to ten minutes a day so why not give it a shot today. Think about when you can build in reflective moments into your schedule. Hold yourself accountable for today and then do it again tomorrow. I'm betting that the payoff will soon. Have you hooked in the meantime. This is laura. Thanks for listening.

"Old fashioned forms of fun. Many of these were deliberately about filling time or some might say killing time. Modern often feel. We don't have time for such things but over the past few weeks. Well we've learned otherwise. The circumstances aren't ideal but the good news is that on the other side. The world's lockdown to slow the spread of the coronavirus. We'll have expanded our repertoire. A fun if you've read much literature written before the advent of radio and television. You've probably noticed something authors such as charles dickens jane austen or herman melville stories in a slightly less economical fashion than modern authors. The plots take longer the sentences are more involved but honestly why not. They weren't competing with cable. People didn't have other things to do to fill the hours after dinner and before bed so links wasn't a downside in the way that modern publishers sometimes considered to be links was often an upside. Anyone listening to this. Podcast presumably still has access to the internet but with school and activities canceled. Many people have more hours to fill than in the past screens. Fill some of it but even the best shows get boring after a while. So it's time to recall how people used to kill time and realized that in many cases killing time isn't a bad thing at all. One of my favorite. Our filling activities is big puzzles. Well a two hundred piece puzzle might fit in a busy day long days. Call for big ones a thousand pieces. Fifteen hundred pieces. Why not gather the family around a big table and chat as each work on your sections. I'm also a fan of giant. Lego sets over the past few months my ten year old and i have been working on a replica of the empire state building. We flagstar lego building muscles on christmas. Gingerbread house set and now we're feeling more capable of bigger things sets that take more time because time is kind of the point. Baking can fill lots of time. My husband's been baking bread. I collect magazines from the nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties and some of the recipes and old issues of good housekeeping. Literally require all day but if everyone's around the house all day this might be less of a downside than it seems at first glance. Of course you can really get into the little house on the prairie lifestyle and take up sewing or other needle crafts every time. I read the laura ingalls wilder books a picture. The family sitting in front of fire with pa. Reading playing the fiddle and moss ditching something so enclosed for a family of six certainly takes a lot of time. We don't have to make our clothes from scratch these days but cross-stitching an elaborate pattern can fill many happy hour especially now that no one is supposed to be going out of the house for happy hours. There are really all kinds of old fashioned time. Killing options crosswords card games. Long board games like monopoly or risk scrapbooking quilting when running around from place to place. It's easy to assume we have no time. And so he filled the time we do have with the easiest thing available hence the two hours daily that even people with fulltime jobs and kids clock watching tv if you're trying to work from home while whom schooling your kids or chasing toddlers all day you may not have energy for anything else i get it but if you're not in that situation these long hours present an opportunity to try something else and maybe just maybe when life gets back to normal will remember that a great many other projects are possible. What sorts.

We are going to be going on Hiatus off for a couple of months at the beginning of next year to give us and all of you are break. So Martin, would you like to explain what's going to happen with our patreon while we're off? Yes, so the first thing that's going off. And is there will be a payment taken on January 1st or whatever, you know, the first week of January is and that will be the money that we use to pay for the team member production costs, but then we will pause patreon taking money for a boon to podcast until we return or if indeed we return that and because you know, we haven't had our career yet and decided if we're going to do this again, but we will be pausing the patrian whilst we're off the air great. So yes, if you're subscribed and you'll continue to support us then continue to be subscribed. We won't take your money without giving you podcasts. And in the meantime, Alan what have you been up to recently? Well just in time for the exhaust episode. I have removed the audio noise that was plaguing my system and also doubled my speed on my desktop PC. Wow. Is this the same fix for Bose? It was it was one fix that did both things. It turns out I use ethernet over power adapters tp-link devices because my office is like the complete opposite end of the house from the internet connection and to get it here. I didn't run ethernet. I just use ethernet over power and I've been using it for years and there's been this background like crackle for a while and I couldn't pinpoint what it was and I thought it was cables crossing over or something like that. And also the internet in this room is 50% of what it should be. I get paid for like hundred hundred and ten Meg or something that I get home forty eight fifty something like that. And when the kids are out one day, I unplugged loads of things and Shuffle things around and it turned out it was the ethernet over power device which has a through socket was plugged into a four-way thing and I moved it. So it's plugged directly in the wall. Magically the audio problem goes away and my internet is now twice as fast off. That's all I did was. The only thing that changed was me moving the ethernet over power socket to be plugged directly in the wall. Suddenly. Everything's faster and better. Wow, great. Well, I'm glad you got that down time for one recording. Sorry Joe Martin what we even up to I have been playing Hotshot racing with my friends on that their Internet. It's a good game. This is a driving game. I imagine it is. I think I may have mentioned it earlier in the year, but it's having a bit of a Revival at the moment. It's a low poly retro arcade style game racer available on Steam and you can play it under proton. And now now I'm not working for you know, the Christmas break. I was looking to have some fun so long I've started hosting some Linux game nights and this is the game. We're playing at the moment doing an excellent romp around the tracks and can people watch you playing even if they don't want to play they can wage. I've started a second YouTube channel just for playing games on Linux and it's all streamed there and everyone who's playing along with me has a voice in the room and it's a group effort. And in fact, some of the others are streaming as well. So you can even own overlay multiple angles of the game being played at the same time brilliant. And with that let's get on with the show you as it's the last show of the year. We thought we would have a big fight respective on all of the good news that happened in 2020. So let's begin back in episode one or the 24th of March Martin. What good news did you find? I was delighted by Alain running. The urban too long will paper World Cup and Hardy heroine being voted as the all-time favorite a bun to desktop wallpaper who would possibly have seen that result coming off but what transpired is I did a bit of archaeology and we dug up the original artwork for that and we were able to reproduce a 4K version which was included in the focal fossa. LTS release later in the year nice brilliant and speaking of that LTS release. We had more good news in a purple. Yes, indeed April was of course the release of the the focal fossa LTS release and you know, I think for Alan as much as for me, you know, this is a landmark for us off. The LTS is a very important but you know personally this was my first time around being, you know engineering

What's in your wallet. Limited time offer terms apply see capital one dot com for details Welcome to before breakfast. A production of. I hurt radio. Good morning this is laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is about how to build and maintain close ties. People you mostly see virtually in the past few weeks. Plenty of people have been trying remote work for the first time. It's necessary under the circumstances. But i know that for many people. There's an assumption that it's a poor substitute for an in person connection whole industries of business. Travel have been built around the idea that in order for people to work. Well and creatively together. They need to spend a lot of time face to face as someone who's been working from home since two thousand and two. I think this is kind of ridiculous. As one example i co host. My other podcast. Best of both worlds with sarah. Hart unger who's a practicing physician who lives in florida. I live in pennsylvania. She and i have seen each other in person. Just half a dozen times over the last five years. But we've managed to start and run an enterprise together and have quite a bit of fun doing it. These things don't need to be either. Or i'm certainly not saying that. You never need to see people in person. But we won't all be engaged in social distancing forever when we are on the other side of this we can all recalibrate what should happen in person. And what really doesn't need to thus saving time and wear and tear on our planet. So how do you maintain close virtual relationships. I found that video conferences are a key part of it. Sarah hughes squad cast to record our podcasts which allows us to see each other and our guests even though were only recording audio. I have zoom pro account to which i use all the time facetime on your phone is good for one on one type stuff before. There were good video conferencing options. It's true that remote work did feel more distant but now this isn't true at all and unless we're talking about someone you're planning on touching allot. The human brain has no way of knowing that interacting with someone via video is different than interacting in person. Because how would it know this. It's not like our caveman ancestors would have had a way to see people without them being right there. This is why people who are on television a lot report that when people see them on the street or in a restaurant they act like they know them as if the relationship is mutual. Rather than one way. It's kind of funny but you can use that knowledge to your advantage. Whenever you possibly can do video calls. Yes this means you need to build in time to brush her hair or shave but so it goes as a side note. Video calls massively cut down on the multitasking. That happens during audio calls. They're much more efficient. Second building socializing time into your video calls. I actually think it's wise to build and social time to meetings in general but this is doubly important when you're not going to be able to grab a cup of coffee or go to lunch afterwards. I run one monthly video meeting where we usually start with an icebreaker question. If the agenda is planned well you can still get through everything and given that meeting as much about the relationship as the stated agenda. This is a good thing. Third be more systematic about reaching out. The human brain doesn't naturally think of people that we don't see frequently again. That's just the way were built if someone disappeared from our caveman tribe for six months. Well the odds weren't good. That person was coming back so in our modern world. You need a mechanism for thinking about the people you'd like to maintain relationships with even if you're not physically seeing them all that often. Some people are kind of funny about this. I get regular emails from people at a certain time every three months and i know that they've probably made it a goal to reach out to the people in their broad networks every quarter. Yes kind of humorous. But it's also effective. I remember these people. Frequency of contact makes you feel closer than you might actually be so built in time to go through lists of your social media connections old colleagues people on your christmas card lists whatever if you can come up with a decent reason to send a note then do so and of course take advantage of random opportunities to subscribe to lots of industry newsletters and anytime you see someone mentioned that you know reachout while none of this means that we never need to see people in person. I that these in person meetings can be relatively infrequent and you can still feel quite close. I have a small mastermind group. That i've run for awhile. And i realized that i can count on one hand the number of times. I've seen its members in person in the past five years. I would consider all of them my good friends and colleagues. I believe they'd say the same about me all the self isolation doesn't actually have to be isolating if you're smart about it. I'd love to hear your tips for staying in touch.

"Who discovered how to write much more efficient emails. Email is a great tool I love hearing from before breakfast listeners for instance, email can be sent and received at whatever time works for the sender and recipient. This is very efficient. But e mail can also cause a lot of confusion people skim long messages and missed the last line asking for what the message was really about or people read along message trying to figure out what the center wants only to get to the end and realized that the sender doesn't need anything. The email could have been processed at a less urgent time. In any case before breakfast listener Peter wrote in with an email format that he uses it forces the writer to be more thoughtful gets to the NUB of the problem quickly and allows the recipient to deal with it efficiently, and effectively he says. Here's how it goes. I put in the subject line what you want the recipient to to if the email. Example phrases include for approval for Info for endorsement for action update to previous email and so forth. After you've written what the person should do with it then you write the subject. Peter notes that this allows the recipient to sort win to deal with it. So an office refurbishment project for instance, might inspire an email with the subject for approval new furniture purchase. Then, you start the email with what Peter Calls A. B. L. U. F.. Maybe we'll say that's a bluff that stands for bottom line up front one sentence only. Our furniture email might contain the bluff seeking your approval to purchase new office furniture in line with new office plan budget. If. This is all the recipient needs Peter notes than he or she can just reply approved no need to wade through anything else to get to the action required. Perhaps the person choosing furniture has done a great job with the last round of furniture purchasing and it's not worth the managers time to wade into the details. All is good. E mail has been read quickly and responded to quickly. Now if the situation needs more explanation than the next paragraph should be a what this is a one to two sentence expansion on the bluff. Remember that's the bottom line up front. After that, you can include eight. So what paragraph now this might not always be required Peter Peter Notes. But if the person receiving an email needs to know why they're being asked why this needs to be done by a certain point, this paragraph can explain it. Then the final paragraph contains the what next statement This describes the next required action. Probably, this was explained in the bottom line, upfront the bluff but in case there's any confusion you can spell it out again here. and. Then you're done. I like Peters approach and I think it's a good idea in general for emails. There's a place for long conversational notes but when someone gets two hundred emails or more day that place is probably not his or her inbox explaining exactly what you need in the subject line and putting the bottom line up front increases. The chances that the email inspires the action.

"To fill all available space. And just as you will never get and stay at Inbox, zero. Never arrive at a perfectly clean house that will then fall prey to toys, junk mail, and dirty dishes. Email. And Housework. Will both take any amount of time you give them. That means that any hacks designed to lessen impact are going to be of limited use. And yes. you can write shorter emails. He probably should. You could even right instead of okay in your emails and yes, you can develop a system for emptying the dishwasher that makes it take five minutes instead of seven minutes. Awesome. But fundamentally, the only way to make these activities take less time. is to choose to give them less time. The good news though is that this approach does work. When I've managed to convince people to limit themselves to three to four email checks per day done at certain times they do in fact, spend less time on email. And I think tours are best approached the same way. Batch them and designate certain times. When chores aren't always options, then you can enjoy the rest of your time without feeling guilty. Here's how this can work. Spend some time today thinking about the chores and errands you normally do over the weekend. Be Judicious what truly needs to happen. And what's not critical? While you might need closed for the week you probably don't need to wax your floors. Or you might need to go grocery shopping. You don't need to cook all your meals for the week ahead of time. Choose to make simple meals that you can whip up in fifteen to twenty minutes on weeknights instead. Now, estimate how long these tasks will take. And what can overlap? If all household members participate. How much time would it take to get through these things? Perhaps one party could switch clothes from the Washer to the dryer and run the vacuum while someone else goes to the grocery store and drops off the dry cleaning. Once, you've figured out a rough window. Designate a block of time in which you will do almost all of these things. For instance maybe you decide that from ten to twelve on Saturday morning, you will do the bulk of these weekends at. Make sure this is a time everyone can participate. Make a game plan. Then assess what things will need to happen outside the window. Ideally, not too much. If, you've got a reasonably sized family. You'll still need to do some dishes in empty the dishwasher on Sunday. Even if Saturday from ten to twelve is the official chores errands time. And perhaps, the laundry that was washed Saturday during this window is still in the drier outside the window and might need to be put away. But make sure to prevent scope. Creep. If one party is assigned to pick up and vacuum the basement playroom from ten to twelve on. Saturday. And this is in fact on then. Do not go redo it on Sunday just because there are toys out. Of course, third toys out it's a playroom. That's what happens. But. So what? No one is going to come around at eleven pm Sunday night to give you demerits for having toys on the floor. So. Just let it be and relax and have a glass of wine instead. There was a time for picking up the playroom. And now is not that time. If you start thinking this way. I promise your weekends. We'll start feeling much better. Do, designate a time for weekend chores. If so I'd love to hear about it. You can email me at before breakfast podcast at iheartmedia dot com. In the meantime. This is Laura. Thanks for listening and here's to making the most of our time. Everybody I'd love to hear from you. You can send me your tips, your questions or anything else.

"It to make your bed in the morning to clean your desk before quitting time. To pick up the house before bed. I know lots of people feel strongly about this, but I think that this has more to do with personality then whether there's an objectively correct answer. A few years ago like many people. I listened to Admiral William mcraven commencement speech telling graduates that if they want to change the world, they should start by making their beds. The idea is that how we do little things and the order we create around us through these little victories is what allows us to big things in the long run? Lots of people agree with the admiral his speech has been viewed more than ten million times. I'd point out that his speech was actually more about various other lessons he learned in his military service, but most people are never gonNA face harsh combat conditions or survives special forces training. Everyone, on the other hand can make his or her bed, which is why that's the lesson that's often repeated from the speech. So is this a wise idea? Is Making your bed the first step to conquering the world. I know it's a popular idea magazines devote cover lines to the idea that you can clear your clutter and Change Your Life. Marie condos life changing magic of tidying up became a cultural phenomenon with its charge that life begins when you put your house in order. But as someone who doesn't make her bed every morning or clean her desk most days or particularly care if the house was cluttered when I go to bed I have to say I'm not sure. I'm not sure that spending time creating these signs of outward order is the universal cutest success. Instead, I think that some people are more bothered by untidiness than others. There are neat types and there are let it go types. One is not better than the other. There are successful and unsuccessful people in both camps. However since I focus on the twenty four hours, we all have a day I. do know this. If you can get yourself to a place where you are slightly less bothered by a lack of visual tidiness, you can save quite a bit of time. Here's one way to find out what sort of camp you fall in. Does it. Bother you to have a high number of unread messages on your inbox. ICON. I don't get worked up about deleting stuff, and if I have no new messages that I haven't dealt with are only a handful, my icon generally says somewhere around six thirty. Six thirty messages to me six thirty messages basically means zero it doesn't bother me that it isn't actually zero. But when I tell this to some people or they see my phone, they say this would drive them crazy. They say I should go through and delete all these unread messages would say zero but I fail to see why This would not change my life in any way if my icon six, six thirty or it's zero. Likewise. No one sees my bed during the day. Sometimes, I make it and sometimes I don't. I'm not more productive on the days that I do it. I don't work near my bed where would enter my world view anyway. As forgetting that bed at night, I can fall asleep whatever's going on the floor whatever the bed looks like just view it as irrelevant. But in my talks and workshops on time management I know that many people feel differently. People's time logs will show thirty to sixty minutes cleaning the house before bed. So I. Ask why? Is there going to be an eleven pm. Home. Inspection. Is. Someone coming around to give demerits for having toys on the floor. Well. No there is no eleven pm home inspection and nobody is giving out demerits. In fact, those toys are just GonNa come out again the next morning and you'll never get that our back. That might make rational sense but people tell me they simply cannot relax if their house houses a mess and similarly I'm sure that some people would feel incredibly distracted and ill at ease by that six, hundred, thirty number on their inbox an unmade bed might make them worry that life is falling apart. If that is you well, then you'll need to spend time on it or you can find someone else who will whether voluntarily or for pay, but there might still be ways to save time. For instance, if you really need a neatly made bed, don't have an elaborate bed one sheet on comforter and only as many pillows as you and any bed mates need for sleeping. Arranging a dozen throw pillows is the way of madness. Turn the bed making process into a thirty second ordeal Max, and if you really can't relax if there's a mess in the house, I suggest this clean one room shut the door and sitting there. Frees up all kinds of time. Do you make your betty today. Are, you in the neat.

"Snoozing is a terrible idea. Either get up the first time or set your alarm for the time. You actually intend to get up. But one listener Carlo road into. Remind me that snooze button can actually be used for good as long as you're not using it to go back to sleep. Carlo for instance uses his snooze button to segment his morning activities in a more efficient way. He and his kids need to leave the house that certain time, so he segments the hour before they leave into six nine minutes segments with a little time change leftover. He uses one segment to get himself dressed. He uses another to help. The kids get dressed. He uses a segment to eat a quick assed. He's a segment to do some morning house chores and a segment to make lunches for everyone. Then the last segment is devoted to gathering everyone and everything together to get ready to go. This way he doesn't have to keep watching the clock, but he also knows quickly if the running behind and he can course correct before the morning goes off the rails. Carla. Snooze Button at work to when he's in a time crunch. I set up an alarm at a specific time. Say Four o'clock and use the snooze to plan two or three activity bursts. He says such as answering complicated email by the first news sending all his meeting invitations for the next day by the second snooze and planning the next morning tasks by the third snooze. As he reports this way I have finished several menial tasks and I can feel organized for what comes ahead. I think this is a great idea. Of course, if nine minutes doesn't work for, you feel free to set your phones timer for any other amount of time. Lots of people swear by the door technique where you set a timer for twenty five minutes focused on something intensely for that time and then take a break. You can set alarms for other things to. Say you're in a meeting and you know you need to leave on time, but you really want to focus on the other person. Instead of trying to sneak peeks at the clock here and there set an alarm for a few minutes before you need to go. The other person will hear the alarm to, and so it provides an opening to move things along and and things, but you can completely relax up until.

"Breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to save time by picking up the phone. Once upon a time in thirty years ago, people who wish to communicate instantaneously with someone generally had to pick up their phones and call them. There were downsides to this method. Sometimes people were out and before cell phones that meant their phones weren't with them. Sometimes people were busy doing other things explaining what you want on, the phone has never been easy. You have to put yourself out there. The recipient of the call would have to respond in some way even if she or he hadn't been anticipating the question. Email and text have solve many of these problems. People can read and respond when it's convenient for them, you can explain what you want in disembodied words, so any rejection or stated responses. Don't hit you so personally. Because of these upsides we have a tendency to email or text to the exclusion of phone calls. Indeed, there are some people who are basically never pick up the phone to call someone, and that's a shame because calling is often the most efficient way to do anything complicated. Arranging dinner with a friend, the back and forth on scheduling restaurant choice a reminder that your friend was going to ask her roommate to join, but she's got a shellfish allergies, so maybe not the crab shack, but how about that Mexican place across the street? All this can easily stretch to a dozen emails or texts. While ringing phone technically interrupts whatever you're doing. It does so once you chat through the shellfish allergy issue and make a plan. Then you are done. Whereas those dozen tax will interrupt you a dozen times. That's not more efficient. The phone also allows you to hear emotions and react based on that. You can soften responses and reassure people. So that makes it a good choice for any conversations. That might be sensitive. There is some evidence that emails are perceived more negatively than the sender intended. The vocal calibrations you hear on the phone, allow you to interpret the sender's true intentions. Why does this matter for efficiency well, misunderstandings waste all kinds of time. Your colleagues spends hours wondering whether you're mad at him rather than on advancing your team's project. So go ahead and pick up the phone next time. You need to work through anything complicated. If you know the person, you actually don't need to arrange a time to call, you can just call. The sheer logistics of arranging a time can eat up anytime. Savings instead learn to communicate through this relatively old fashioned method, and you can spend your save time doing other things like cleaning out your inbox.

"Is about how to make time to mentor. Many of us have been helped by mentors in our careers and we'd like to pay our gratitude forward. Like everything though mentoring takes time. It's easy to shove it to the bottom of the priority list when life gets busy. But I think even busy. People can make time to mentor. Indeed, I hope busy people will make time to mentor for a few reasons I i. think it's important to show that even people with full personal and professional lives can contribute to the community. But. Let's admit a selfish reason to. Few of us have so arrived that we can't be helped by other people. The People you mentor early in your career may go on to become fabulously successful, while you are still working, and it will be great that they think fondly of you. So, how can you build this into your schedule? One of the best things you can do is to be choosy about who you mentor. Well we do have time for whatever matters to us. Time is ultimately limited. You can't mentor everyone see you want to mentor the People who will blossom best with your help? You can definitely be strategic about this. If you're in a desirable industry and particularly, if you're in a position where you hire people, you will probably get a ton of requests to pick your brain. This is really a terrible image. If you think about it, and it can be easy to feel resentful about these requests, so one of the best ideas I've ever heard for. People in the situation is to create a list of frequently asked questions. Take half an hour or so this week to create a document with the most common bits of advice people ask you for. Send this list around to anyone who asks to pick your brain. Invite them to read it and then send you any. Follow up questions. Here's an interesting discovery. Most people won't bother to follow up. I have no idea why this is I. Think people kind of hope that if they get a coffee meeting with the right person, great things will just magically happen, but in any case by sending a list of frequently asked questions around. You've been helpful, but now you're off the hook. However there will be people who read your document and then follow up with intelligent questions. Those. People by all means meet with them. They're the folks who are serious and are the best use of your time. As for those meetings feel free to make them convenient for you. You might designate a time like every other. Friday morning for these sorts of meetings. Anyone who asks can be put their. Limiting the timeframe it easier to make mental space for these meetings rather than having anytime be an option. You can also have people come to you. Feel free to choose. Whatever location minimizes your transition times like the coffee shop on the first level of your office building. You can also look for ways to fold people into what you're already doing. I've heard many creative examples over the years such as inviting men ts to go from morning walker run with you or sharing a ride to the airport. Many years ago, one of my editors drove me back to the side of Washington DC where we both lived from our office in Virginia most days I tried to keep her entertained and traffic, and she taught me a lot while doing something that she had to do every day anyway. Of course, I saw her at work to, and that's really the best way to fit mentoring into your life. Ideally you work with a lot of high potential people that you'd like to see succeed. Ideally these are the sorts of people you're hiring. If that's the case, then mentoring is really just part of managing. Every time you work with someone, be generous and gracious with feedback. ASK ABOUT THEIR LIVES! Ask about their desired career. Trajectories look for ways to make opportunities for them, because careers are long and so our memories. Time strategically invested this way. We'll definitely pay off. So. How will you make time to mentor? In the meantime. This is Laura thanks for listening and here's to making the most of our time.

"Delete or start a new email chain second. Don't use sarcasm without alerting people sarcasm and humor in. General can be fun ways to bond person. They're also almost impossible to convey in the written word. One study found that whether people were emailing friends or strangers the people receiving the emails or wildly inaccurate in determining what sarcastic. And what was serious. This can go wrong and all sorts of ways. The person receiving your message might think you're being deliberately mean rather than making a joke so don't be subtle either. Put in the word sarcasm or put a smiley face next to anything that should be interpreted lightly if emojis don't feel right then don't make your joke in the first place. Save it for the in person meeting when your comedy act as far more likely to shine third and a related point be more positive than you think is necessary email. In general reads negatively. It's unclear why this is possibly when we talk in person. We send reassuring nonverbal cues that the relationship matters and we're not trying to be aggressive but these cues are completely absent in the written form that means that if you right the way you normally talk what you write be interpreted more harshly than if you're in person so over the years I've learned to write the email naturally send then go back and make it look like it came from a happier bubbly version of Laura even a short greetings such as hope. You had a great weekend tour. I was so glad to hear from you can go a long way toward making the e. Mail. See more positive if you don't intend to flame someone. Finally there's the question of when you're sending the email. The original genius of email was that it was a synchronous communication. I read an email at a time that works for me. You read and respond at a time that works for you. Alas we've now devolved into a situation where email is treated with the urgency of a phone call but people email with prolificacy. They'd never manage on a telephone in any case. This has some important ramifications. If you're in management you should understand that anyone who reports to you will feel like she should respond to your e mails as soon as possible. That's human nature. But maybe your email wasn't urgent. Maybe you're emailing at ten pm because you like to catch up on work after your kids go to bed you might wanna save the email as a draft and send it out at eight. Am You can also tell your employees that you generally don't expect them to respond at odd hours. You'll call if you need them. Respect for boundaries means you'll have employees who are happier and more recharged. So how will you be more careful with your emails? It's worth the time to think it through when we talk. The words are generally gone but in email can last forever best to get it right. In the meantime this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.

"Maybe it's saying or writing in a journal. It can be very powerful to make these decisions automatic but building habits is hard. That's why I'm always on the lookout for ways to make habit building easier so I love this suggestion that I received from before breakfast listener. Peggy she wrote in I. I have a habit that helps me with getting little things done. That can be overlooked. I try to combine two or more tasks so that I don't forget one of them. She gave me a few examples of pairings that worked well in her life. When I make my bed in the morning she says I pray if I see. My bed isn't made I know I forgot to pray. Also Peggy notes that. She injured a muscle in her leg at one point and knows she needs to stretch it. I was forgetting to stretch it. After running as I'm usually short on time in the morning she says I found when I am in the shower and conditioning. My hair after a run. I just stretch that particular muscle for a few minutes while I let my conditioner set. I had problems for years with this muscle but once I started this routine. It hasn't been a problem. Praying and stretching are frequent tasks but other little things. Don't need to be done nearly as often there are few tasks I have to do. Once a month peggy rights. I finally realized I needed to combine them all on the same day. The first of each month I put in a new pair of contacts budget and write out checks to my kids music and dance teachers wash my vacuum filters and do the cleaning cycle on my washing machine. I have written down my monthly items on my phone and I do them all at once. I think these are great ideas. All sorts of little habits can be paired with others for instance. I've suggested in previous episodes that people keep time. Logs it's empowering to know where the time goes but it's also easy to forget to write down where the time went until so much time has passed that you no longer remember so. I suggest that at least during the Work Day. People pair time tracking with bathroom breaks when you come back from a bathroom break right down what you did since the last one or here's another opportunity for pairing. I don't know about you but my car has a tendency to accumulate a lot of trash now and I'm putting gas in my car. I set the handle to keep pumping and then I clean out the car. This feels like a real win. Because I wasn't using that time for anything important anyway and now ever much cleaner vehicle. I don't watch TV much. And I almost never watch it live. But if you're watching something with commercials this can be a great time to do something like stretching or strength training or you can use the time. We'll food heats up in the microwave in our house. We Stack Mail on the counter under our microwave and it has a tendency to pile up if I sort the mail anytime using microwave. I can avoid losing important notes in the mess now to be clear. I don't think we need to pack every minute of every day. People can go a little overboard with Paren- I've personally been mocked in more than one article for the idea of using microwave. Sign for anything but I also do that. Small things done repeatedly add up. Habits are powerful but relying on our conscious minds to remember to do all the things we know we should do is just asking for failure. Pairing new habits with things we already do greatly increases the chances that we stick with them. Just ask Peggy his leg. Injury is no longer bothering her and keeping a spiritual commitment. She decided to make to. What habits do you pair together? I'd love to hear about them. Please email me your pairs at the breakfast. Podcast AT IHEARTMEDIA DOT COM in the meantime. This is Laura.

"Only on who the series follows the intertwined fates of the picture perfect Richardson family? An enigmatic mother daughter duo who move into town and append their lives with devastating consequences. Now streaming check out new episodes every Wednesday only on Hulu. Welcome to before breakfast. A production of iheartradio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Today's tip is about how to make more time to read when I asked people what they want to spend more time doing. Exercise always comes up. I don't worry we're GONNA talk a lot about that in future episodes but reading is a close second indeed. If you'd asked me a few years ago would I wanted to spend more time doing. I would have said reading books. I would've told you I was busy. And I had very limited time to read then I tracked my time for a year a year incidentally when I had four children under the age of eight including an infant which I thought was a pretty good excuse. My time logs were clear. My problem was not a lack of time to read. I had spent three hundred twenty seven hours reading that first year which is almost an hour a day. But I couldn't remember many good books I had read. The truth is I had spent the vast majority of those three hundred twenty seven hours reading online news stories and gossip magazines. Why well that's what was easy and available when I had opened time so that is what I read. It makes sense but it's also kind of sad as three hundred twenty. Seven hours is enough. Time to read more than fifteen thousand pages of real stuff. I could have read Warren piece ten times. Let's just say that did not happen so I resolved to do better and over the next two years. I didn't spend much more time reading but the quality of my reading material massively improved. I actually did read Warren piece I read Moby Dick. I read Middle March Infinite Jest Kristen. Lavender one q eighty four ulysses a number of other amazing books on my reading bucket list. I did not magically find more time Laura who had no time to read and Laura who read Warren peace were the exact same person living in the exact same universe. It was just about being more strategic with a time. I had so if you'd like to be a better reader. You might try to do what I did. I make sure you have really good books to read readily available. Now you might think this sounds backwards. I can just hear people yelling at this podcast Laura. They're all these wonderful books that I knew time to read. This is not my problem. Let me ask you this. If you were to turn off this podcast. Could you be engaged with the book you really wanted to read? And the next thirty seconds because I know you could be on instagram and the next thirty seconds. If you don't have that same ability to dive into a book then this is GonNa limit your ability to seize time to read so make a list of the books. You'd really like to read not what you think you should read. You're not in high school English class anymore. You don't have to read what you don't WanNa read even if that cuts out some good books. I'll put this out here. I don't like false accusations stories and I don't like the sort of awkwardness. That's endemic to romantic comedies. Also I feel like there's enough violence and cruelty in the real world that I just can't stomach too much of it my fiction even though I know this. Put some really good books off my list. Id Me You. Do you figure out what you'd like to read building twenty minutes a week or so to find book recommendations? I like to check out the modern Mrs Darcy. Blog and her podcast. What should I read next? I look at the Wall Street. Journal's Review Section and magazine for ideas. I welcome your suggestions to then. Get your hands on the first handful. Physical books are great. But here's the real breakthrough for me. I put the kindle APP on my phone this is Amazon's EC reader APP. And guess what? I always have my phone with me. Since you're listening to a podcast. I'm guessing this is the case for you to putting the kindle APP on my phone meant that I could immediately by any book I saw recommended and I could turn my headline and social media scrolling time into reading time. People turn out to have a lot of time. You probably pick up your phone at least fifty times a day if you want to check the exact number. Just look at the screen time function. If you have an iphone so you pick up your phone you junky mail and then what you probably look at social media or headlines. But if you spend six of those five minutes spurts reading. That's half an hour a day of reading right there and then the funniest thing happens when you're really into a book you start magically finding more time to read. Instead of spending ten minutes puttering around with the male pile looking at catalogs you read instead of Channel Surfing. You read your the exact same person but time starts to open up. Of course there are ways to build more reading time. It's your life. Structurally too if you've got a long commute definitely put audio books into the mix. Maybe you listen to this podcast for a bit and then listen to a chapter in a book. You know if you've got a forty five minute commute. You're going to spend seven and a half hours in the car this week. You're going to spend forty five hours in the car of the next six weeks anyway so you might as well listen to Doris. Kearns Goodwin's team of rivals which clocks in at just under forty two hours reading also a great way to wind down at night. I try to get ready for bed at least twenty to thirty minutes before lights out time a few days per week then I can use that time to read finally one of the most motivating things I did was to start keeping track of what books I'd read. There are fancy books journals out there. But you don't really need anything like that just a notebook or a file on your computer or your phone is going to do just fine. You can also start sharing your list of books. Read with friends. Not only will people see what you like and start recommending titles. It's a great way to hold yourself accountable because while I really did enjoy reading Warren piece. I also get a kick out of telling people. I read Warren piece. I'm guessing this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time. Hey everybody I'd love to hear from you. You can send me your tips your questions or anything else.
