How things go in the first hours of the day and its impact on your day isn't just luck––it's science!

Establishing positive habits in the morning can positively influence these physiological processes and set a constructive tone for the rest of the day.

So how do you master a productive morning routine? Let's discuss some key elements to elevating your performance through habits and intention in the early hours of the day.

Why You Need The Highest Potential Planner

We live in a digital world, where paper and pen is often considered “old school.” If you aren’t naturally a person who loves to write things down and check them off (guilty!) then the thought of using a paper planner may not appeal to you or may even sound like one extra task you need to check off every day.

Here's How to Get Rid Of Distractions & Up Your ProductivityĀ 

Do you ever feel like you’ve spent your whole day warding off distraction rather than “winning the day?”


I have felt this on many occasions. 


For me, I know I’ve won the day when I’ve successfully planned ahead, connected with my people and when I know I showed up to the best of my abilities. But some days, distractions limit me from accomplishing that winning plan. 


Some days giving into distractions has a domino effect and, soon enough, the end of the day feels like a bust. When I do this, I look back on the day and realize, I basically gave up by giving in! (Let me be clear - giving up IS okay if you’re not going in the direction you want to go! Maybe you need to re-route! But giving up on something you love in order to avoid the discomfort of discipline, that’s another thing entirely and I’m here to tell you… as a High Performer, which I know you are...we don’t give up on the things that...

Do these sound familiar? As entrepreneurs and business people, we are all challenged with making the most of the time we have each day because many of us don't have someone managing our time for us and telling us what to do.

How to Simply Decrease Distraction and Increase Discipline

productivity Mar 25, 2020

As a High-Performance coach, I deal with clients who tell me all the time that one of the biggest obstacles to greater success is distraction. They talk about how their attention gets pulled in so many directions and that they are easily distracted whenever they have to step out of their zone of genius.


Is this you?


The definition of distraction is “a thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else.” While the explanation of what a distraction is remains the same for everyone, what distracts us differs greatly from person to person.


We can be distracted by too much noise, too little noise, large crowds, being alone, and let’s not forget our devices. With plenty of social media to keep us occupied in all the wrong ways, we are used to constant mental stimulation.


As business owners, we can sometimes be distracted by keeping up with our clients, tech issues, product problems, or in other ways. We can even allow...

Increase Your Productivity With This Hack

productivity Mar 11, 2020

No matter how much you have to get done, we are all working with the same time restrictions: 24-hours in a day.


Sometimes, this amount of time can seem like an eternity––especially if you’re taking care of boring or menial tasks. But most of the time, we’re all hurrying around at the end of the day trying to get everything done before bedtime.


How often in that timeframe are you thinking about your future goals?


How many of your completed tasks are getting you closer to reaching your goals?

3 Ways to Change Your Habits to Reach the Success You Want

clarity productivity Mar 04, 2020

Everybody wants success. And wanting success isn’t a bad thing, but sometimes we forget that the little decisions we make today are either helping or hurting our chances for success in the long run.


Think about it...if you keep doing the same thing every day but wanting different results, it's not going to happen! It's time to change your habits. While change is uncomfortable, you can’t expect new results if you keep doing the same thing, day in and day out.


It sounds easy, but I’ll be the first to admit that changing habits is difficult. After all, habits are almost mindless–– we do them without thinking! Habits are powerful but they can be reshaped if we take time to learn about why we do them and then become intentional about change.


Here are a few ways to start changing your habits so you find the success you want.


1. Find clarity.

People often think that they lack motivation when it comes to achieving their goals....

How Multi-Tasking Is Killing Your Productivity (& How to Fix It)

productivity Nov 21, 2019
If you prefer podcasts, listen to my podcast episode on this same topic here.

Ask a busy person how they accomplish so much and they will probably tell you that one of their secrets is multitasking. After all, why focus all your efforts on one thing, when you can evenly distribute yourself among five? As tempting as it is to take on the mindset that doing multiple things at once is better, research suggests otherwise.
First, let’s discuss what multitasking is and just how its counterpart, focus-tasking, may just be the wiser of the two.

What is Multitasking?

Switch-tasking, interrupted tasking, and multitasking––they are all similar ways to describe the ability of a person to handle more than one task at a time. If you’re a visual person, imagine how your computer has the capability to have multiple programs open and several tabs plugging away on your internet browser.
The biggest illusion of multitasking is...
