Play • 25 min

Hey, look here! No, over here!


Today, it seems we’re bombarded with more external distractions than ever before. Yet ultimately, it’s the internal distractions that really suck our attention and energy. 


Get focused with this deep dive on distraction:

  • What draws our attention? It can be things that are crass, obscene, surprising...
  • Self-deprecating thoughts are a distraction
  • The things you think about most often, and most intensely, build physical pathways in your brain that make them easier and more automatic
  • It’s not just a matter of “thinking positive thoughts”
  • Rick’s recent experience with a team member who got distracted by a shiny new automation tool that wasn’t supporting a top priority
  • What are the top 5 things in your life YOU need to live as your best self?


The Straight Truth: If you think you’re at the top of your game, but you’re not supporting your body with physical movement, you ain’t right 

The One Thing: Write down the top 5 must-haves for your life
