Ep. 191: Get ahead by being lazy with Laurence Shorter

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Laurence @TheLazyGuru

The Lazy Guru: A Half-American Scot Who Lives in England

  • Stress can be created in any moment
  • The moment where all stress dissipates, where there are no problems/pressures…. never ever arrives
  • Life is going to continue to be complex, difficult and unpredictable so you might as well just relax right now
  • As some point, the ‘balance’ achieved during meditation has to become a continuous state
  • This is as much about enjoyment of stress as it is avoiding stress
    • Stress does not ever go away, you just have to learn to manage it
  • Everyone has a Survival mechanism that has 2 states:
    • A hyper-engaged state/hyper alpha state of fighting stress
    • An “in-denial” state

Action Steps

  • Often when we are selling something, we feel that we have to ‘push’ something
  • ‘Push’ ourselves
  • “Push’ our product
  • BUT THAT IS THE OPPOSITE OF AN Effective SALES TECHNIQUE
  • We often do things that we think we need to do because we have been told that that is a good thing to do
  • When you are really into something and can add value you to it, the money will follow
  • Do not focus on your agenda in a conversation, just let the conversation go where it is going to go.
    • Let go of your expectations in a conversation

The Heart of the Lazy Guru - Making Space

  • People who are genuinely creative have a whole bunch of practices that people who uncreative people can benefit from massively
  • Creating space for something magical to happen is something that we all need to do
    • Creativity and spirit is essential for an entrepreneur
  • Making space is the discipline of carving out little spaces of time, daily, to do nothing
    • Most of us have a bunch of mind talk that gets in the way - it is chock full of concern and anxieties
    • Try to listen to them, not talk to them
  • Things will happen to you naturally in a way that will surprise you

Ep. 172: E-Mail MUST-dos, Doug loves our National Parks (Strick hates them), eating a bison, some federal employees that suck, and Doug almost gets stuck in Canada. The CIA is watching Strick!

 

Doug -  @djdoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Just shy of an hours worth of Email tips, Secret Service flags, rants on federal employees, trusting the president, bison, tunas, Trump, Doug tours 3 National Parks and Strickland wants to turn them all into sawmills (not really) Hear all about it on The Nice Guys today.

Go to Nice Guy Community sign-up and we'll send you the free E-Book "The 5 biggest (relationship) mistakes in business" AND be one of the first 100 people to sign up for the Nice Guys Community to get an invite to our first (to be scheduled) live podcast.

Go to Overcast and please click "Recommend" for every episode you listen to (and the ones you don't for that matter) because we want to overtake NPR and Tim Ferris in the Podcast rankings. Let's show those slackers who really runs this podcast thing. 

- Canada lets Doug in, but getting back into the U.S. was not so easy.

Which weighs more- a ton of bricks, a ton of feathers, or a ton of E-mails?

E-Mail Etiquette:

Reply quickly and clearly.

Keep Emails to 2-3 sentences.

Keep subject lines to 3 words.

If you ramble on (like Doug and I tend to do) your E-Mail will not get read.

- Add video and links to keep Emails shorter

So….Back to the National Parks, and you have to get 44:30 into the podcast before we really go off the rails.

Strick would rather be in Vegas (or just about anywhere else) on vacation.

Doug digs on federal employees and Strickland triggers the CIA to download the show.

We want to hear from any Trump supporters to hear why you support him.

Shout out to http://www.centauruscomputers.com/ for a great Email and great customer service.

Strick wants to get rid of the National Parks and hates animals (not really).

Denis Leary- Animal Auditions

Jordan Harbinger Interview - Podcasting Icon

Jordan on Twitter - @TheArtofCharm

Doug on Twitter - @djdoug

Strick on Twitter - @NiceGuyonBiz

Jordan Harbinger hosts one of the most popular podcasts in the world, The Art Of Charm (WAY more listeners than we have!) Hear how he got where he is on The Nice Guys podcast today.

Jordan Harbinger started out as a lawyer. Then he worked on Wall Street. Now, he makes more money than he did at either of those jobs, recording a podcast.

Starting out, you need to do most of your own work, so you can hear your mistakes and learn from them.

Jordan's podcast talks about confidence, networking, relationships, business topics and emotional intelligence. but he also show people the HOW tos and the WHYs as well.

Jordan talks about topics like relationships, social perceptions, men and women. But as I listen to your guests, I start to get sucked in. Like KimSeltzer and Dr. Welch who was just on. People need this stuff.

Check out his podcast- http://theartofcharm.com/category/podcast-episodes/

And his company:

I'm kind of a big deal
