In this episode, we are joined by productivity guru and business giant Michael Hyatt. Michael shares the counterintuitive secret behind why his company grew by 65% last year.

In this episode we discuss:

1. Why working less could actually help your business grow more.

2. How to eliminate distractions and focus on what really matters to your growth.

3. How to use the ingredients of play, rest, and delegating to thrive as an entrepreneur.

Favorite quotes:

1. Constraints are not the enemy but our friend.

2. I want to win at work and succeed at life and I think both those things are possible.

3. Focus is a superpower. Especially in a day and age where the average person is so distracted, we really have an opportunity to stand out if we can regain our focus and do the task that drives the results.

4. Our time is fixed. It’s a zero-sum game. When I say yes to one thing, I’m going to implicitly say no to something else. I gotta understand the tradeoff and there is a tradeoff so what am I willing to trade.

5. When you’re not rested you’re not focused, you’re not productive. You’re easily distracted.

6. Productivity is more about managing your energy than managing your time.
