Develop Perfect Timing with Dan Pink

Today I want you to learn from Dan Pink, who’s convinced that there’s a perfect time of day to do almost anything.

He discusses how most people function throughout the day in regards to timing, arguing that each person has a high point, a low point, and a recovery period. Analytic work should happen during the peak, administrative during the trough, and brainstorming/ideation during the recovery.

Knowing when to do things, and not just how, can make all the difference in your daily productivity.

“Most of us move through the day in three stages: a peak, a trough, a recovery.” 

On this episode of My Quest for the Best we’re sharing this interview with Dan, who’s teaching us how to have perfect timing.

Think Differently about Subscription Models with Anne Janzer

Today I want you to learn from Anne Janzer, who’s showing us how a subscription model can be the right choice for every business.

She walks us through how business can make the transition from a traditional model to a business model and argues that leaders in every kind of business – with a bit of patience and tinkering – can create one that works well for their company.

What it comes down to is, instead of focusing on transactions, in a subscription model, the focus in on relationships.

““The fundamental shift that I think we need to make when we think about selling things one-off versus selling a subscription to something is this: a subscription sale isn’t a one-time transaction, it’s actually the beginning of a relationship.” 

On this episode of My Quest for the Best we’re sharing this interview with Anne, who’s teaching us how to think differently about subscription models. 

Click here to listen to this interview.

In this interview, Anne not only discusses how subscription models work, and how to adapt them to your needs but also what it takes to build relationships with customers within this model.

Using High Sensitivity as a Strength with Heather Dominick

Today I want you to learn from Heather Dominick, founder of a Course in Business Miracles, whose research with entrepreneurship has led her to discover a fascinating statistic: 20% of all entrepreneurs are highly sensitive.

As a highly sensitive entrepreneur, there are things you can do to combat the coping mechanisms that come automatically with being an HSE, and Heather gives some great insight on how to do this.

“We have to learn how to embrace this and how to really use it to our benefit and our advantage than having it work against us.”

Do More with Less with Essentialist Greg McKeown

Today I want you to learn from Greg McKeown, the bestselling author of Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, who believes that the key to success has nothing to do with having more, but doing more with less. But wait, doesn’t success mean more business, more clients, and more of the work you want to be doing?

Greg McKeown says no. Instead, the idea is to pare down what you’re doing to that which is most essential, focusing your efforts on prioritizing things that you’re doing that will bring about the best results.

“The undisciplined pursuit of more does not produce the freedom, the joy, the results that people are promised.”

On this episode of My Quest for the Best we’re sharing this interview with Greg, who’s teaching us how to stop being so busy and start focusing on the essential.

In this interview, Greg also discusses time management and how to make trade-offs to do less of what you don’t need to be doing, to do more of what you should be doing – and spend less time doing it!
