Ep. 187: Russians, Strick’s Routine Meditation, and Sunny sneaks one in


Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Sunny Lake sneaks her "Sunny Side Up" business minute in at the last minute (at least SOMEBODY is giving business advice this episode!)

  • Russia and their doping athletes
    • 119 athletes were found to be faking drug tests
    • International Paralympics bans Russia
    • Sports that weren't banned: Badminton, table tennis, volleyball, golf and handball
      • What example is this setting for the kids?
      • Downside: National disgrace, millions of billions down the drain and setting a horrible example for the younger generation

How to Avoid "Overwhelmed"

  • Break it down into chunks and prioritize those chunks
    • Completely hone in on those top 5 chunks and GET THEM DONE
    • Then focus on the next 5 and the next
    • Keep the Schedule
  • Strick's Morning Routine
    • During the school year, Strick is up at 6 am and the girls are out of the house by 7 am
    • Strick has committed to do a 10 minute morning meditation and morning Yoga stretches
    • Strick needs to watch less television
  • Look at what you have to accomplish in the next 30 days and work backwards from that
    • Don't get sucked into the whirlwind of shit that other people have going on
    • Base your schedule on the things that are important in your life
  • When you stick to a routine, you are saving energy!
    • Every decision uses some brain power
  • Try some meditation (just 10 minutes) for a week, see firsthand the results
    • Meditation can help clear the "overwhelming schedule" fog
  • What's done, it's done
    • Our priorities change when we get older, and there is nothing wrong with that
