FFP 011: Micro Missions and Powerful Payoffs

Make the Most of Your Time with Short Bursts of Action!

In this episode of the Future Focused Podcast, Kelly will focus on how to make the most of your time, by utilizing a strategy called Micro Missions, based on the ancient Japanese Philosophy of the Kaizen Way.

By using short burst of focused action on one centralized activity or outcome, you will make impressive growth, build impressive habits, and open doors to productivity pathways you never knew existed.

The key to productivity may very well be centered around “micro” concepts of action, consumption and time.

If acted upon, the concepts within this short podcast could put you and your future self in the driver’s seat to a new direction and new possibilities.

Hit “play” to get results and focused, future focused.

FFP 005: What Does It Take Today?

What does it REALLY take to be successful?

Everyone wants to know the answer to the question, “What does it take to be successful?”

Too few people, I fear, actually ask themselves this question, and even fewer try to discover the answer.

In this episode, I share my thoughts on how to better frame this question, and offer you some insight on how to make significant progress in achieving your goals. I’ll explain: why you need a proverbial “leg day”, how to make sure you have the advantage of an end-of-year review statement on yourself, the questions you really need to ask yourself, and offer up some advice on some things you really need to stop doing.

My One Word for 2018

How Choosing a One Word Theme for the Year Improves Life

For the past few years, I have watched with fascination on social media as people proclaim there “one-word” theme for the upcoming year. The concept is to choose a word that represents the theme you want to focus on, in this year of your life.

The idea clearly works upon the knowledge that as we improve in one area, that improvement bleeds into other areas of our life.

There are blog posts, videos, books, and even jewelry that embrace this concept of a one-word, annual theme.

The concept I used this year was to find one word that covers three important areas of my life.

This is my first year embracing this concept.

My one word for 2018 is “FIT”.

I believe the word fit sums up much of what I wish to accomplish in 2018,

In 2018, I want:

  • to be physically fit.
  • to be financially fit.
  • to fit time each day for my projects and family.

So, what are you waiting for? Choose your one word for 2018 and use it to help measure the next decision you make. We are each trying to make the next, best decision in our life. If mine doesn’t align with “fit” I hope to summon the strength to pass.

Remember, choosing your one-word is a great start, but you have to live it each day.

Here are some books that go much deeper into this one-word for the year concept:

Seven Ways to Address Teen Mobile Device Addiction

I just read an article in USA Today citing a report from Common Sense Media that 50% of teens say they are addicted to their mobile devices.

I am sure if you think about it, you would most likely agree with those finding as well. It seems everyone has their head in their device.

So, what do we do about it?

Here’s my advice:

  1. Model the use of mobile devices that you wish to see. They are watching us.
  2. Limit their alone time with their devices.
  3. Encourage “creating with their device” over consuming with their device. Work with them to create movies and other creations.
  4. Enforce bedtimes for devices. That’s right, the device is put away at a certain hour for the night and it does not go with them to their bedrooms.
  5. Establish device-free zones and device-free times. (e.g. No device in the bathroom or during dinner.)
  6. Have them show you what they do on the device. Sit with them. Remember that time you spent with them when they were little? Get that back.
  7. Create alternatives for your children and play with them. (Board games, walks, workouts, any type of social interaction will trump device consumption. They grow up so fast!)

These seven methods to help address teen mobile device addiction may be a little challenging to set-up at first. I recommend not trying to implement all seven at once. Start with one, but be firm.

Ultimately, begin this conversation with your child using a mobile device regardless of their age.

Technology is awesome when it is used well, and it can be destructive to families and lives when it is used poorly. Teach your children and students to use their devices properly.

This same advice can also be helpful to you.
