The “90% Rule” That Puts You 100% In Control (Of Everything)

Have you ever heard something that, technically, you’ve “heard” before — but this time, it hits you square in the heart?

That happened to me a few months ago with a quote. The underlying concept was something I was familiar with, and to some degree even live by (though, I do fail often).

It’s one of those big ideas that should be taught, and re-taught, to all human beings throughout our entire lives. It’s deceptively simple, yet deeply profound.

The impact that any outside situation has on your life depends on how you react or respond to it. Click To Tweet

And, it’s particularly useful for those of us who like to feel “in control” of things (my hand’s raised!), because it gives us a healthy place to direct that desire. A way to steer what is perhaps the only thing in this life we can control.

Have a watch and I think you’ll agree…

How To Do It All: My Unconventional Advice to Fit It All In

Today’s episode may fall under TMI and, admittedly, my approach may seem crass to some.

But it’s my honest answer to what appears to be a staple of modern life: a massive and ever increasing pressure to do more, be more, create more and achieve more.

Between all the things you ‘should’ be doing to be your best (meditation, juicing, working out, etc.) and the professional demands on your time (writing, selling, marketing, working, social media, etc.), and the responsibility you have to family, kids, pets and friends…

It’s no wonder many of us feel like we’re barely staying above water. That’s why I was excited to hear from Angela, who wants to know my personal method for getting everything done.

When you know what’s important, it's a lot easier to ignore what’s not. Click To Tweet

While we’ve talked about productivity a lot before (and will continue to) I’ve never answered in a way that was quite so personal.

*Headphone alert for parents watching with kiddos or readers watching at work. Some bleeped out explicit rap lyrics appear in this episode.

While we had a lot of fun making this one, don’t let the good times gloss over the importance of the message. This episode shines a spotlight on one of the most crucial building blocks of living a full and meaningful life. A lesson that sadly, most of us don’t learn until it’s far too late.  

You must know what’s truly most important to you and live accordingly.

How To Be Consistent: 5 Steps To Get Things Done, All The Time

Ahh, the power of being consistent.

It’s heralded as the strategy for achieving long-term greatness in almost any category: your body, business, art, relationships, emotional health or spirituality.

The problem? It’s the one thing we mortals can struggle with the most — especially when we’re trying to improve, well, anything.

Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally, it comes from what you do consistently. Click To Tweet

Like it or not, being consistent is essential if you want to make any significant change in your life. It’s also a must have skill if you’re looking to kick some serious ass and become world-class.

That’s why I was happy to tackle this subject to help Kat, who wrote in because she’s struggling with her ability to stay on track. While I’m not perfect, I have been able to master consistency in a few key areas and, I gotta say, it’s made all the difference in the world.

The 4-Minute Method To Massive Productivity

I can’t help it.

I’m obsessed with finding methods that help me get more done, in less time and with less stress.

Partly, because my brain just doesn’t quit. It’s like a 4-year old who just ate 3 brownies.

There are soooo many things I want to create, see, learn, read, watch, and experience — that if I don’t give myself daily support and structure, I’d spontaneously combust.

If you plan on having a successful life, start by planning your day. Click To Tweet

The other reason is my ever-changing schedule. Between travel, shooting and the constant ebb and flow of life — there’s no “typical” day.

And, let’s be honest. As much as my inner good-girl dreams of having a set, uber-productive schedule (Snoozing by 11pm, meditating by 7am Marie!)…

My inner real-girl needs her chance to dance in the sunshine too. “Wait — what time is it. 1am? Of course we can watch another episode of Orange is The New Black!”

On today’s MarieTV, learn one of my most simple productivity habits for making sure I get the right things done everyday — no matter how wacky my schedule is.
