Ep. 121: Interview with Productivity Master Chris Bailey

Chris Bailey published an incredible book called The Productivity Project, Accomplishing more by managing your time, attention and energy.

I'll let Chris tell you a little about himself:

1. I’m Buddhist, and meditate for 30 minutes every day. I first became enamored with meditation and Buddhism through my yoga practice, and haven’t stopped practicing since. (It might seem weird that someone who’s into productivity is into Buddhism and meditation, but I think the two can work together in really interesting ways.)

2.  He graduated University with a business degree with specializations in marketing and management.While I’m into some things that seem hippie-dippy on the surface (like meditation), I think my business-y mind helps me cut through all of the bullshit out there so I can focus on the practical side of everything I write about and experiment with.

3. I grew up in Canada, and have lived here all my life. If you notice a lot of politeness in the way I talk, this is why. I currently live in the nation’s capital, Ottawa, and absolutely love it here. If you come to visit, I’ll treat you to poutine and a beaver tail.

4. I have had some cool work experience, even though I’m 25. I was fortunate enough to work a few fun co-op internships throughout University, including one where I independently hired about 200 co-op students for a global telecom firm (my school named me their Co-op Student of the Year for this job). I also worked a few corporate jobs throughout University so I could graduate with as little debt as possible.

5. A few of my favorite things in the world: Green tea, writing, typography, space, technology (I’m a huge nerd), em dashes (they’re so versatile!), and Oxford commas.

Get a copy of his book at http://alifeofproductivity.com/

Some great articles he's written- http://alifeofproductivity.com/best-things-ive-written/

Ep. 115: Be extraordinary. Learn how today from leadership development expert Mark Sanborn

Mark is a NY Times best selling author, a member of National Speaker Association’s Hall of Fame, professional speaker and president of a studio for leadership development. His client list of over 2400 clientsis like a who’s who in the corporate world and includes Harley Davidson, FedEx, HP, IBM, Microsoft and ESPN. Here are some things we learned from Mark today: 

It's important to be a nice guy, but sometimes you need to let the world feel your weight.

What you do is not as important as how you do it.

The difference being normal vs. being extraordinary can be just a few simple thinks that you do every day.

Using ABCD can help- Go "Above and Beyond the Call of Duty."

Personal responsibility, authentic relationships and respects for others make a triangle for success in life.

Don't think "I have to do this", change that to "I get to do this", inject fun into whatever you do.

Nobody can prevent you from choosing to be exceptional.

Everyone makes a difference, what kind of difference do you choose to make?

Ep. 111: Today's interview with author and Super Agent Ron Shapiro

We have spent the last 20 plus years admiring Ron Shapiro from a distance, became fascinated by his philosophy when he negotiated Cal Ripken’s contract with the Baltimore Orioles and have always felt a level of satisfaction because Ron is truly a nice guy and has been negotiating and winning big for his clients for decades. USA Today called Ron "one of baseball's most respected agent-attorneys Ron is also, a speaker, educator and a family guy too."

Here's what we learned about Ron today:

He was selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America® for the 21st consecutive year.

Received his 4th Championship ring and 2nd from San Antonio Spurs in recognition of Power of Nice contributions. 

And some great tips:

Achieve your goal without destroying the other guy.

Instead of “I win- You lose”, Ron proposes a “win-win” style.

Good deals echo, they lead to more good deals.

It’s not the sale, it’s the relationship that counts.

You have a system of Prepare, probe, propose and Listen.

Shapiro Negotiations- http://www.shapironegotiations.com/

Ron’s book, THE POWER OF NICE: How to Negotiate So Everyone Wins, Especially You!, is available on Amazon, with a great forward written by Cal Ripken Jr.

Ep. 105: Mindhacking master Sir John Hargrave went 21 days without food just to prove he could do it. Hear the story on the show today

 I interviewed Sir John Hargrave in the very last hours of his 21 day fast. Hear all about it and how you can hack your mind yourself on The Nice Guys today.

 

Here's what we learned on the podcast today:

Identify and change the thought loops that may be holding you back in your business and life.

Don't let others plant bad seeds in your mind.

Positive thought loops can help make your mind stronger.

The limitations you put on yourself are largely self-imposed.

It is incredibly important to stop, and breathe sometimes.

You can train your brain to focus on the positive and avoid the negative. 

Play "What was I just thinking?" all day to improve your attitude and outlook.

Always remember- You are not your mind.

Sir John Hargrave, author of the new book MIND HACKING: HOW TO CHANGE YOUR MIND FOR GOOD IN 21 DAYS, is going without food for 21 days, to show how ordinary people can achieve amazing feats of willpower, by hacking their minds. 

According to Sir John, mind hacking can be used to reprogram any number of behaviors or habits, from conquering anxiety, to improving relationships, to building careers. The trick is rooting out "problem thinking," a process he likens to "debugging" a computer.

"When I tell people I'm going 21 days without food, the first thing they say is, 'Don't die,'" he remarked. "That's a scary thought: this experiment might kill me. But the mind hack I quickly put into place was, I will not die, and in fact will become stronger. That is one of the dozens of mind hacks I will use to survive this extreme mental trial."

Sir John, who started his career as a computer programmer, has a step-by-step system for learning to reprogram the mind. These are presented in his book MIND HACKING as a series of easy "lessons" that anyone can use to rewrite their thought patterns, and in turn, their lives. 

"Your thoughts create your habits, your habits create your actions, and your actions create your life," he said. "In order to change your life, you have to start where your life begins -- in the mind."

Ep. 104 "The Go-Giver" Bob Burg, Interviewed today

I never realized how powerful, motivational and inspirational one little red book, one email and one long distance exchange could play in my life, but that exact time in my life, September 30th, 2013, was a pivotable point in my career.

The first email contact I made with Bob Burg, author of The Go-Giver (coauthored by John David Mann), was brief. I wrote, “Dear Bob, Literally standing in Barnes and Noble, reading the first few pages of Go-Giver, and I am hooked. Any advice for an up and coming speaker?” While I was hoping to get an answer, I was not expecting to get one in under 30 minutes. In addition to the wonderful advice provided by Bob, it was obvious it was not a “canned” response, leading me to believe Bob truly was a giver, his real life principles mirroring the description of his book, “Heartwarming and inspiring...brings new relevance to the old proverb ‘Give and you shall receive.’”

Over two years later and dozens of email exchanges, Bob has lived up to his book title, he really is a Go-Giver. Bob has provided priceless advice via email, countless tidbits of sage wisdom through his blog and soon, Bob will sound loud and clear, as I interview him on The Nice Guys on Business podcast. His spot (Episode #104) airs February 5th.Subscribe to the podcast via iTunes (or your favorite podcast provider) and it will automatically be sent to you. 

Everyone I meet that has had an opportunity to come in contact with Bob Burg genuinely feels as I do, pleasantly surprised by how accessible and gracious he is. His contacts on social media, colleagues, podcasters, other professional trainers, coaches, consultants and even competitors love this guy because he is genuine, caring, empathetic, compassionate and giving.

Bob's view on the importance of personal relationships in this high tech world today. “All things being equal, people will do business with, and refer business to, those people they know, like and trust. No matter how big you grow your business via social networks, do not lose sight, people do business with people, and not computers. It’s the person in front of the social platform they are doing business with, and it’s something you should never forget” 

Highlights:

Doug - Do you personally connect with everyone that reaches out to you? And if so, how?

Bob- We all have to put a value on what we believe. I hold personal connections to be of high value to me. It’s worth the extra time for me to make the personal connections.

Doug - How does giving as a means to getting really work? Is this a trend or is this something that is here to stay?

Bob- I think that people who have always conducted their business by looking to provide value to others, have been successful. Early on, when the book Go-Givers came out, the early adopters, the people already doing this, the leaders and top business people, the very successful business people, said the book didn’t teach us anything new. We take that as a compliment.  But this is what they have tried to teach their people about. Their people wouldn’t really listen to them but the book was like third party validation.

Doug - What is the key to being successful?

Bob  - Being successful is the result of doing the correct things in the success process in a way that allows you to be successful. Being nice is great. In fact, it’s hugely important. However, if you were nice but did not dowhat you promised,  or put no effort into follow up, or were not able to find sufficient ways to add value to others, it won’t work.

Doug - What is the basic premise of the Go-Giver?

Bob - It’s simply that shifting your focus from getting to giving is not only a nice way to live life, but a very financially profitable way, as well.

Doug -  How can you make it so you don’t get taken advantage of as a Go-Giver?

Bob -  Being a Go-Giver should never be confused with being taken advantage of. It simply means you are going to focus on what you do, providing value to that person. 

Doug - What are some of the obstacles standing in the way of someone choosing to become a Go-Giver today?

Bob - Someone who has grown up with or has been exposed to a really lousy way of doing business or thinking they must take advantage of others in order to be successful to get the limited pie (in order to get someone else has to give up), they will have to make a shift when they acknowledge there is an issue in the way they are currently doing business. That it’s not resulting in the success they want, both financially and in their enjoyment of what they’re doing. Of course,  if they don’t want to change; in other words, if they don’t feel there’s anything they need to change, they probably won't.

Doug - Give me one nugget for the people that want to take action. What’s the takeaway that they can put into place today.

Bob - Ultimately, as Dale Carnegie told us in his classic, How to Win Friends and Influence People, "People do things for their reasons, not our reasons." I think if we will always keep that in mind, whether we are dealing with somebody in the sales process or dealing with someone socially or emotionally, or in any way, if we understand that anything they are going to do they are going to do for their reason, then we’re on the right track. 

Bob is passionate about providing the Go-Giver message and has inspired people worldwide through his book and his keynote speaking. Bob also teaches other speakers via his Certified Go-Giver Speaker Program licensing and training others on his great philosophy. His programs, books and any information about his company can be found by visiting his website atwww.Burg.com . To listen to the full interview, go to DougSandler.com or subscribe via iTunes. Air date is February 5th, Episode 104.

Special thanks to Bob Burg for giving so much and adding a generous supply of value to our relationship.

Ep. 103: Ted Rubin is a connector, relationship builder, speaker, and a really nice guy

Ted Rubin has more good advice on business than we could squeeze into 25 minutes, so we let him talk longer. Hell, Doug was begging Ted to stay on the show longer. Amazing info that you have to listen to on The Nice Guys today. The "F" bomb is dropped, Ted gets so passionate.

Here's what we learned from Ted on the Podcast today:

It's all about "RonR" - Return on Relationships #RonR

Focus on who you are and what you're saying, not on how many followers you have.

Look people in the eye digitally- Connect in the same way you would face to face.

Measure the ROI of Trust and the ROI of Loyalty, they both lead to ROI

Brands are from Mars, and consumers are from Venus.

A network gives you reach, but a community gives you power.
