His insights on taking action and overcoming procrastination have been featured in the Wall St. Journal, Forbes, CNN, Entrepreneur, Inc, and several other major media outlets. As a world-renowned speaker, His Tedx talk on "How to Multiply Time" has been viewed nearly 2 million times and he was recently named as one of the top 100 leadership speakers in the world by Inc Magazine.

Evolution of Procrastinate on Purpose

Rory’s new book evolved as a result of his last book Take the Stairs.  In that book Rory writes about two types of procrastination. 1.) Classic procrastination which is consciously delaying what you know you should be doing.  2.) Creative avoidance which is creating stuff for ourselves to do as a way of doing those things and feeling productive. His new book Procrastinate on Purpose focuses on a third type of procrastination called priority dilution.

“Priority dilution is when the movers and shakers, the do-gooder, the check lister, the leader, the entrepreneur, the person who is making stuff happen; it’s people you wouldn’t think normally struggle with procrastination and yet the have the very same net result which is they leave the officer at the end of the day with their most significant priorities left unchecked, not because they are lazy but because we have allowed our attention to shift less important but perhaps more urgent tasks. ” - Rory Vaden

 

Game Changer

Time management appears to be logical given all the tools we have to work with but in today’s world time management is emotional.  There are so many things in our emotions that dictate our time. Additionally, everything changes when you add the component of significance.  Rory shared that importance means how much will this matter, urgency is how soon will this matter and significance is how long will this matter.

“Everything you know about time management is wrong. ” - Rory Vaden

Creating Timeless Value

Posted by Aaron Walker on Aug 12, 2019 9:27:36 AM

In today’s show, Aaron Walker interviews John Lee Dumas.

John came up with the idea to launch a daily podcast interviewing today’s most successful and inspiring entrepreneurs when he realized no one else was doing it.

All of his favorite podcasts – ones that shared interviews with individuals who were doing amazing things and leading inspiring lives – were once per week, and some of them only once every other week.

As a Commercial Real Estate Broker, John found himself in the car every single day driving back and forth to appointments wishing there was more motivational content available to him on-demand.

That’s when he had his own AH-HA moment and decided that he would be the one to create that content.

The name EOFire, short for “Entrepreneurs On Fire”, was inspired by the late, great Stuart Scott, who was famous not only for being an incredible sportscaster, but also for a phrase he loved and used often: “HE’S ON FIRE!” Scott would use the term in reference to a player who was on such a roll that he couldn’t be stopped.

When John heard Scott use the phrase during the 2012 playoffs, he knew it was a perfect fit for his podcast that would share the journeys of entrepreneurs who couldn’t be stopped.

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode here and learn more at viewfromthetop.com.

Show Highlights:

  • The highs and lows of living in Puerto Rico
  • The EoFire transition after 2000 episodes.
  • Are you listening to the new Master Classes or Variety Shows offered on EoFire?
  • JLD’s shift from success to significance
  • People listen when you’re passionate

  • JLD’s love for quotes and gratitude
  • The power of batching

 

“I want to create a stand alone, valuable course that people can come back to time and time again.”

Market the Problem, Not the Solution

Posted by Aaron Walker on May 24, 2019 9:00:00 AM

Morgan Wright is an internationally recognized expert on cybersecurity, strategy, cyberterrorism, identity theft and privacy. On today’s episode, Morgan discusses how he’s marketing himself a little bit differently and how this strategy got the attention of Seth Godin.

 

Highlights from This Episode:

● Morgan recently spoke to Seth Godin. What was that conversation like?

● As demand for video has increased with law enforcement officers, it’s become harder and harder to be more transparent due to information overload. More surveillance isn’t always the solution.

● Seth was impressed by the conversation he and Morgan had.

● When we need to search something we always say, ‘Just Google It’. Did you know Microsoft has spent 10 billion dollars over the last 10 years trying to make a dent in the ‘search’ market and they haven’t succeeded?

● When you own the category of your industry, you put yourself in a very powerful position. You get 76% of the economics of it. Morgan explains further.

● What advice can Morgan give to the listeners about effectively marketing a problem, not just the solution?

● Does Morgan have any advice on how listeners can be better fathers, husbands, and men?

● The older we get, the smarter we get, especially when it comes to raising our kids.

● Remember, consistency over time adds to something big.

● Don’t wait till you’re in trouble to give your wife some flowers! Do it just to do it.
