0:00:23.670,0:00:27.090
productivity I’m Ray Sidney-Smith and

0:00:25.410,0:00:30.529
I’m joined here today with Augusto

0:00:27.090,0:00:34.200
Pinaud and Francis Wade welcome guys

0:00:30.529,0:00:37.410
good to be here good morning Ray’s great

0:00:34.200,0:00:38.850
we have a fantastic show today we are

0:00:37.410,0:00:41.129
going to be talking a little bit

0:00:38.850,0:00:43.170
philosophically today not that we don’t

0:00:41.129,0:00:46.320
philosophically talk on most episodes

0:00:43.170,0:00:48.870
right but but today we’re gonna be

0:00:46.320,0:00:52.170
talking about productivity and its

0:00:48.870,0:00:54.120
relationship to integrity and what I

0:00:52.170,0:00:57.420
wanted us to do is to start off with a

0:00:54.120,0:00:58.980
discussion about how we actually define

0:00:57.420,0:01:01.440
integrity because I think it’s actually

0:00:58.980,0:01:05.820
very different from person to person in

0:01:01.440,0:01:10.110
terms of what integrity is I think for

0:01:05.820,0:01:13.159
me integrity means having a system that

0:01:10.110,0:01:17.220
is complete so that nothing is missing

0:01:13.159,0:01:19.979
that there are no elements that are out

0:01:17.220,0:01:21.740
of place but I find with a lot of my

0:01:19.979,0:01:24.479
clients and people that train is that

0:01:21.740,0:01:27.590
their systems are are for the most part

0:01:24.479,0:01:29.460
self developed or self created and

0:01:27.590,0:01:31.409
somewhere in their teens they put

0:01:29.460,0:01:34.799
together a bunch of habits practices and

0:01:31.409,0:01:37.170
tools and they come into adulthood and

0:01:34.799,0:01:38.430
sometimes in late adulthood never really

0:01:37.170,0:01:41.369
having examined what they put together

0:01:38.430,0:01:44.220
and as a result sometimes something is

0:01:41.369,0:01:46.290
missing so for example I’m working with

0:01:44.220,0:01:47.430
one client one trainee who told me that

0:01:46.290,0:01:50.369
you know she was feeling really guilty

0:01:47.430,0:01:52.939
because she couldn’t remember all of her

0:01:50.369,0:01:56.340
tasks and I said well you probably

0:01:52.939,0:01:57.659
outlive and outstrip the boundaries of

0:01:56.340,0:01:59.850
your memory you probably need to use

0:01:57.659,0:02:01.860
something totally different like writing

0:01:59.850,0:02:05.009
it down or capturing it on a smartphone

0:02:01.860,0:02:07.290
or using some recording device or

0:02:05.009,0:02:09.660
something and she said oh I didn’t

0:02:07.290,0:02:12.660
realize that she thought that she needed

0:02:09.660,0:02:13.890
to use her memory so for her being all

0:02:12.660,0:02:15.660
of integrity menu

0:02:13.890,0:02:18.600
a system for capturing that couldn’t

0:02:15.660,0:02:20.940
keep up with the demands on her life so

0:02:18.600,0:02:23.790
for me integrity is having all of the

0:02:20.940,0:02:26.970
elements in place and having a complete

0:02:23.790,0:02:29.040
set that works for the individual that

0:02:26.970,0:02:33.600
makes a lot of sense and I think a lot

0:02:29.040,0:02:37.320
of people miss the idea that one can

0:02:33.600,0:02:41.250
have their system and still have areas

0:02:37.320,0:02:43.350
that need to improve and if you are in

0:02:41.250,0:02:45.750
some way shape or form feeling pain in a

0:02:43.350,0:02:47.730
part of your life then that means the

0:02:45.750,0:02:49.980
system itself is potentially lacking

0:02:47.730,0:02:51.690
integrity and and is something that can

0:02:49.980,0:02:55.620
be worked on and we’ll talk about that

0:02:51.690,0:02:59.489
later in this episode integrity is do

0:02:55.620,0:03:02.100
what you said you were going to do when

0:02:59.489,0:03:07.080
you said you were going to do it it

0:03:02.100,0:03:09.810
sounds simple but it is of people with

0:03:07.080,0:03:13.050
listening today Pro one of the hardest

0:03:09.810,0:03:15.840
thing to do and when you’re going to

0:03:13.050,0:03:19.440
talk about productivity systems and

0:03:15.840,0:03:21.690
integrity conscious or not that is the

0:03:19.440,0:03:24.690
reason that make people start looking

0:03:21.690,0:03:27.239
for a better productivity system or for

0:03:24.690,0:03:29.430
the first productivity system is the

0:03:27.239,0:03:31.739
fact that they are saying they are going

0:03:29.430,0:03:34.320
to accomplish they are going to do or

0:03:31.739,0:03:37.079
they are going to deliver things that

0:03:34.320,0:03:39.480
are not happening right now and they are

0:03:37.079,0:03:42.299
not happening at the time they’re even

0:03:39.480,0:03:47.430
offering them or they’re not happening

0:03:42.299,0:03:49.860
at all and they need to match what is

0:03:47.430,0:03:51.570
happening in their life with what they

0:03:49.860,0:03:52.200
are saying it should be happening in

0:03:51.570,0:03:54.540
their life

0:03:52.200,0:03:56.610
now as Francis said with his person

0:03:54.540,0:03:59.070
trying to remember everything the

0:03:56.610,0:04:02.579
problem is not if she was forgetting or

0:03:59.070,0:04:06.570
not forgetting and the problem is she

0:04:02.579,0:04:10.230
knows out of her integrity or his

0:04:06.570,0:04:12.480
integrity that he or she wasn’t doing

0:04:10.230,0:04:14.970
what she was saying that she was going

0:04:12.480,0:04:18.060
to do at the time that she was going to

0:04:14.970,0:04:21.209
do and that is the reason most people

0:04:18.060,0:04:24.890
look desperate into productivity is to

0:04:21.209,0:04:26.160
be able to work with that integrity

0:04:24.890,0:04:30.750
hello

0:04:26.160,0:04:35.330
and to be able to be more effective on

0:04:30.750,0:04:38.450
the send people is not looking to cross

0:04:35.330,0:04:43.320
instead of ten items out of their least

0:04:38.450,0:04:46.200
25 450 or more people is looking to

0:04:43.320,0:04:49.950
match what they said they were going to

0:04:46.200,0:04:52.590
do with what they are actually doing and

0:04:49.950,0:04:55.410
that what they are trying to do in a

0:04:52.590,0:04:58.680
more simpler way is try to match these

0:04:55.410,0:05:00.900
or to bring integrity to the table

0:04:58.680,0:05:04.670
and do what they are actually trying to

0:05:00.900,0:05:04.670
are saying that they’re going to do I

0:05:05.690,0:05:12.150
see integrity as an alignment of a

0:05:10.230,0:05:15.090
complete system sort of the alignment

0:05:12.150,0:05:16.950
and commitment to a complete system and

0:05:15.090,0:05:20.430
I think that’s really important for

0:05:16.950,0:05:23.370
people to truly be trusting of their

0:05:20.430,0:05:25.920
system right because integrity increases

0:05:23.370,0:05:28.380
trust both in an in an interpersonal

0:05:25.920,0:05:31.410
perspective right if you if you believe

0:05:28.380,0:05:34.320
someone lives with integrity you believe

0:05:31.410,0:05:37.740
they live with some moral code some

0:05:34.320,0:05:39.150
sense of ethics and therefore they are

0:05:37.740,0:05:42.510
they have the sort of moral uprightness

0:05:39.150,0:05:45.300
in personal productivity it’s really a

0:05:42.510,0:05:47.700
relationship with yourself and others to

0:05:45.300,0:05:50.810
getting things done and I believe it’s

0:05:47.700,0:05:53.880
that that alignment and commitment to

0:05:50.810,0:05:55.290
the systems that you’ve created that are

0:05:53.880,0:05:59.970
really important in personal

0:05:55.290,0:06:03.300
productivity so how does one integrate

0:05:59.970,0:06:05.010
personal productivity systems into their

0:06:03.300,0:06:07.890
life so that their there is this

0:06:05.010,0:06:10.320
wholeness and this relationship that

0:06:07.890,0:06:12.950
that seems to be right if you want to

0:06:10.320,0:06:16.830
call it that versus wrong in your life

0:06:12.950,0:06:19.170
my opinion is that most people don’t go

0:06:16.830,0:06:21.240
past complaining so they don’t they

0:06:19.170,0:06:23.490
don’t deal with themselves from the

0:06:21.240,0:06:26.610
point of view that their integrity is

0:06:23.490,0:06:28.680
important enough to stop complaining so

0:06:26.610,0:06:30.180
they may see it they see the problem

0:06:28.680,0:06:32.250
they see that for example that they

0:06:30.180,0:06:34.520
promise to be there at 6:00 and it

0:06:32.250,0:06:37.919
didn’t make it make it there at 6:00 and

0:06:34.520,0:06:39.660
they give an excuse and that that for

0:06:37.919,0:06:40.160
them is sufficient to cause the problem

0:06:39.660,0:06:42.860
to

0:06:40.160,0:06:45.770
that’s most people I think there’s a

0:06:42.860,0:06:49.820
handful of people a few who are willing

0:06:45.770,0:06:51.980
to say there’s something that is causing

0:06:49.820,0:06:54.440
me to be late and it’s something to do

0:06:51.980,0:06:57.320
with me most people don’t make that step

0:06:54.440,0:06:59.960
and start to reflect and then do other

0:06:57.320,0:07:02.720
steps like for example doing an

0:06:59.960,0:07:05.450
evaluation of their behaviors in some

0:07:02.720,0:07:08.180
kind of objective way to try and see how

0:07:05.450,0:07:12.560
can I take my system to the next level

0:07:08.180,0:07:14.600
so that I can have more integrity in all

0:07:12.560,0:07:16.280
the ways that we’ve talked about so they

0:07:14.600,0:07:18.320
they it doesn’t even occur to them as a

0:07:16.280,0:07:20.510
problem it’s just a circumstance of life

0:07:18.320,0:07:22.250
and everyone has circumstances that

0:07:20.510,0:07:24.950
everyone has stuff happens that you

0:07:22.250,0:07:26.270
can’t do anything about it and and

0:07:24.950,0:07:30.140
that’s that’s where they ended their

0:07:26.270,0:07:32.290
their sort of internal dialogue I think

0:07:30.140,0:07:34.610
again once again the exceptional people

0:07:32.290,0:07:37.130
deal with themselves at a higher

0:07:34.610,0:07:39.350
standard and they say I’m not gonna

0:07:37.130,0:07:43.400
continue to put up with the fact that

0:07:39.350,0:07:46.610
I’m always late I’m going to rigorously

0:07:43.400,0:07:48.740
try to figure out what the solution

0:07:46.610,0:07:52.040
might be and that you know that that

0:07:48.740,0:07:54.950
sends them to you know articles on the

0:07:52.040,0:07:58.550
internet or buying books to purchasing

0:07:54.950,0:08:00.919
apps to picking up a new device so to

0:07:58.550,0:08:03.590
whatever it might the action might be

0:08:00.919,0:08:05.480
but when someone has that problem it

0:08:03.590,0:08:07.730
takes the exceptional person to some

0:08:05.480,0:08:09.490
kind of search for solutions and it’s

0:08:07.730,0:08:12.980
always an internal search it’s not a

0:08:09.490,0:08:15.140
blame the world kind of think solution

0:08:12.980,0:08:17.200
it has to do with the individual I

0:08:15.140,0:08:22.010
I need to agree with a lot of what

0:08:17.200,0:08:26.120
Francis has said sadly we leave on an

0:08:22.010,0:08:29.570
instant gratification society where we

0:08:26.120,0:08:35.479
are looking for the simplest and the

0:08:29.570,0:08:39.110
fastest of the solution and integrity

0:08:35.479,0:08:43.360
and productivity it’s not accept of that

0:08:39.110,0:08:48.790
and people tend to spend more time

0:08:43.360,0:08:52.160
looking for those instant solutions than

0:08:48.790,0:08:54.050
spending the time working to find a

0:08:52.160,0:08:57.529
solution and

0:08:54.050,0:09:01.370
guilty of charge by the way I I wish to

0:08:57.529,0:09:04.130
say that in everything that caused my

0:09:01.370,0:09:06.170
realm I first looked for the more

0:09:04.130,0:09:08.360
complex solution and then I look for the

0:09:06.170,0:09:13.450
simple one but it Oh for the instant one

0:09:08.360,0:09:16.130
but the reality is we all try to find

0:09:13.450,0:09:19.250
some time or the other the simple

0:09:16.130,0:09:21.920
solution but as Francis said there is

0:09:19.250,0:09:25.850
only a small percentage of people who

0:09:21.920,0:09:29.230
after that initial search fail then go

0:09:25.850,0:09:33.830
to the next step and look for the other

0:09:29.230,0:09:36.860
difficult path years ago we’re talking

0:09:33.830,0:09:38.899
about but we are now going where I’m

0:09:36.860,0:09:43.880
going to be celebrating the 10th

0:09:38.899,0:09:48.470
anniversary of this next year I was I

0:09:43.880,0:09:50.870
weight around 400 pounds for the people

0:09:48.470,0:09:53.810
who’s not in the u.s. it’s a little bit

0:09:50.870,0:09:56.930
over 200 kilograms and and I look for

0:09:53.810,0:09:58.820
all the solutions to that I tried many

0:09:56.930,0:10:01.459
things at the moment I decided that I

0:09:58.820,0:10:04.100
was going to do something about it and

0:10:01.459,0:10:06.980
when everything or all those solutions

0:10:04.100,0:10:09.950
fail me then was the moment that I

0:10:06.980,0:10:12.589
needed to look and fit and make the hard

0:10:09.950,0:10:15.440
call on the hard decision or bring

0:10:12.589,0:10:18.160
integrity to the table this was a

0:10:15.440,0:10:21.320
problem I was going to look into

0:10:18.160,0:10:22.940
regardless how painful it was or it was

0:10:21.320,0:10:29.180
a problem that I was going to continue

0:10:22.940,0:10:32.089
ignoring ok today I am I weighed less

0:10:29.180,0:10:35.510
than 50% of that and I’m still working

0:10:32.089,0:10:37.339
on it but it was a plan that is easy to

0:10:35.510,0:10:40.490
say but if I said when I’m coming to

0:10:37.339,0:10:44.149
celebrate my 10th year anniversary with

0:10:40.490,0:10:48.529
that and some of these things required

0:10:44.149,0:10:51.680
you to go into this more complex and

0:10:48.529,0:10:54.170
long and painful process in order to get

0:10:51.680,0:10:57.560
it productivity sadly is one of those

0:10:54.170,0:11:00.790
you can kick you can complain you can

0:10:57.560,0:11:05.750
cry all that you want but the problem is

0:11:00.790,0:11:07.520
you can fool most people most of the

0:11:05.750,0:11:10.280
time you can say

0:11:07.520,0:11:12.290
a lot of people a lot of the time but

0:11:10.280,0:11:15.520
you cannot fool everybody all the time

0:11:12.290,0:11:19.370
and especially you cannot fool yourself

0:11:15.520,0:11:22.460
you can set Oh immaculate integrity and

0:11:19.370,0:11:25.100
look how great is my system and most

0:11:22.460,0:11:28.550
people will never know but the reality

0:11:25.100,0:11:32.240
is you will know 24/7

0:11:28.550,0:11:34.490
if in fact your system is working or is

0:11:32.240,0:11:36.740
not working if you are acting on

0:11:34.490,0:11:42.620
integrity or you are not acting on

0:11:36.740,0:11:45.980
integrity that element make it critical

0:11:42.620,0:11:49.070
for when you we talk about personal

0:11:45.980,0:11:51.410
productivity because the problem is if

0:11:49.070,0:11:54.410
you don’t look at personal productivity

0:11:51.410,0:11:58.210
and the relationship with integrity and

0:11:54.410,0:12:01.490
how that relationship affect your life

0:11:58.210,0:12:05.840
you will not know how the negative

0:12:01.490,0:12:09.320
affects crowd and really affect or in

0:12:05.840,0:12:11.240
fact everything on a negative point you

0:12:09.320,0:12:13.700
bring up a lot of really interesting

0:12:11.240,0:12:15.890
points Augusto and and Francis when you

0:12:13.700,0:12:19.100
talk about integrity I tend to lend

0:12:15.890,0:12:21.560
toward dr. Steven Covey the late dr.

0:12:19.100,0:12:23.300
Covey’s work when it comes to to the

0:12:21.560,0:12:26.210
discussion of integrity since he really

0:12:23.300,0:12:27.500
did focus on it so much in his works the

0:12:26.210,0:12:30.140
seven Habits of Highly Effective People

0:12:27.500,0:12:32.210
as well as the eighth habit for those

0:12:30.140,0:12:35.330
who don’t know the seven Habits by heart

0:12:32.210,0:12:38.110
like I do have it number four talks

0:12:35.330,0:12:40.670
about think win-win and this idea

0:12:38.110,0:12:43.580
encompasses three vital character traits

0:12:40.670,0:12:46.540
it really encourages needs it’s vital

0:12:43.580,0:12:49.880
it needs integrity maturity and

0:12:46.540,0:12:52.460
abundance mentality and in terms of

0:12:49.880,0:12:56.060
integrity I’ll just quote dr. Covey in

0:12:52.460,0:12:59.180
in how he defines integrity here

0:12:56.060,0:13:01.940
he says honesty is telling the truth in

0:12:59.180,0:13:05.660
other words conforming our words to

0:13:01.940,0:13:08.570
reality integrity is conforming reality

0:13:05.660,0:13:11.030
to our words in other words keeping

0:13:08.570,0:13:13.760
promises and fulfilling expectations

0:13:11.030,0:13:16.820
this requires an integrated character a

0:13:13.760,0:13:19.970
oneness primarily with self but also

0:13:16.820,0:13:21.949
with life so I think

0:13:19.970,0:13:24.139
Cuffy covers something really important

0:13:21.949,0:13:25.839
there that combines what your both are

0:13:24.139,0:13:28.339
talking about here and is really

0:13:25.839,0:13:30.709
important to personal productivity

0:13:28.339,0:13:32.480
systems I really do believe that in

0:13:30.709,0:13:35.329
order for you to be highly productive

0:13:32.480,0:13:37.459
for you to really overcome many of

0:13:35.329,0:13:40.759
life’s obstacles whether they be health

0:13:37.459,0:13:42.949
related or interpersonal which i think

0:13:40.759,0:13:44.629
is probably close related to your health

0:13:42.949,0:13:47.449
and all of the other things

0:13:44.629,0:13:48.740
technological technical and otherwise I

0:13:47.449,0:13:52.160
think it’s really important for you to

0:13:48.740,0:13:53.269
be able to identify problems have that

0:13:52.160,0:13:56.839
self-awareness that you talked about

0:13:53.269,0:14:01.069
Francis and then really start to think

0:13:56.839,0:14:03.560
about how the system is serving you as

0:14:01.069,0:14:06.350
opposed to you serving the system so

0:14:03.560,0:14:08.540
very dissimilar to leadership or at

0:14:06.350,0:14:10.040
least some leadership styles today in

0:14:08.540,0:14:11.480
management we talk about servant

0:14:10.040,0:14:14.149
leadership this idea that you’re

0:14:11.480,0:14:16.699
supposed to be supporting your staff and

0:14:14.149,0:14:18.589
the people who report to you in and and

0:14:16.699,0:14:21.319
your community in order to be able to

0:14:18.589,0:14:23.029
truly lead it I think it’s very

0:14:21.319,0:14:26.389
different for personal productivity I

0:14:23.029,0:14:28.639
think it’s because your system should be

0:14:26.389,0:14:30.529
continually supporting you you need to

0:14:28.639,0:14:33.589
maintain the system and I think that’s a

0:14:30.529,0:14:36.230
part of integrity but you really do need

0:14:33.589,0:14:38.709
to command your system and that means

0:14:36.230,0:14:41.300
identifying where there are potential

0:14:38.709,0:14:43.790
shortfalls in the system and then

0:14:41.300,0:14:46.129
shoring those up and in doing that

0:14:43.790,0:14:48.620
difficult work of saying okay well I

0:14:46.129,0:14:51.259
don’t have these skills do I need to

0:14:48.620,0:14:55.519
develop these skills and many times

0:14:51.259,0:14:59.149
people are unwilling to take the time to

0:14:55.519,0:15:01.250
look at what’s wrong and then and think

0:14:59.149,0:15:03.410
of it from a solutions perspective from

0:15:01.250,0:15:05.779
what’s a what’s an alternative to this

0:15:03.410,0:15:10.689
that’s positive and constructive as

0:15:05.779,0:15:13.339
opposed to I’m bad I’m stupid I’m

0:15:10.689,0:15:15.439
negative adjectives you just fill in the

0:15:13.339,0:15:17.930
blank of the negative adjectives and

0:15:15.439,0:15:20.089
nouns that we call ourselves and and I

0:15:17.930,0:15:23.720
think that negative self speak actually

0:15:20.089,0:15:27.290
starts to impede on one’s integrity it

0:15:23.720,0:15:29.929
starts to ruin it so one you need to you

0:15:27.290,0:15:32.640
need to lean into the positive side of

0:15:29.929,0:15:34.170
your productive skills

0:15:32.640,0:15:36.030
and then you need to actually do those

0:15:34.170,0:15:38.220
things right so sort of two parts there

0:15:36.030,0:15:40.830
right you have to this is not delusional

0:15:38.220,0:15:44.250
by the way I frequently talked to people

0:15:40.830,0:15:47.010
who well I don’t feel positive or I

0:15:44.250,0:15:49.530
don’t feel productive about this or that

0:15:47.010,0:15:51.420
well that’s okay it’s understandable and

0:15:49.530,0:15:53.190
even to the effect that some people say

0:15:51.420,0:15:54.270
well it’s not realistic well the reality

0:15:53.190,0:15:55.530
is is that the world has enough

0:15:54.270,0:15:58.200
negativity in it

0:15:55.530,0:16:00.150
you don’t need to add to it so my my

0:15:58.200,0:16:02.310
suggestion to everyone is just to lean

0:16:00.150,0:16:04.020
into the productive side as if some

0:16:02.310,0:16:05.970
therapists would tell you just lean into

0:16:04.020,0:16:07.650
the emotion but I would lean into the

0:16:05.970,0:16:09.510
positive side of things versus the

0:16:07.650,0:16:12.120
negative and I think that starts to open

0:16:09.510,0:16:14.820
up the opportunity for solutions and

0:16:12.120,0:16:17.340
then your ability to then say I’m going

0:16:14.820,0:16:19.230
to go do those things now I wanted to

0:16:17.340,0:16:22.320
move us along in the conversation in

0:16:19.230,0:16:26.640
terms of how we can how we can raise the

0:16:22.320,0:16:29.700
bar on integrity in our own productivity

0:16:26.640,0:16:34.260
systems and have sort of a thoughtful

0:16:29.700,0:16:36.810
discussion about how we all are doing in

0:16:34.260,0:16:39.570
our productivity systems and ways in

0:16:36.810,0:16:42.600
which we can potentially improve that

0:16:39.570,0:16:45.390
integrity that wholeness my current area

0:16:42.600,0:16:48.330
of productivity that I’m really trying

0:16:45.390,0:16:51.180
to that I’m trying to clean up right now

0:16:48.330,0:16:54.690
is that I frequently talk about this

0:16:51.180,0:16:58.890
concept of integration across digital

0:16:54.690,0:17:00.870
tools and today I use as we’ve talked

0:16:58.890,0:17:03.870
about before many different platforms on

0:17:00.870,0:17:07.949
a daily basis and across my entire

0:17:03.870,0:17:10.949
system I believe in having a uniform set

0:17:07.949,0:17:14.370
of categories buckets for things things

0:17:10.949,0:17:16.140
I call life categories and I really

0:17:14.370,0:17:18.000
think that level of integrity in your

0:17:16.140,0:17:20.550
system does a whole bunch of really

0:17:18.000,0:17:24.329
positive things so let’s just take a

0:17:20.550,0:17:26.880
very very basic basic example of home

0:17:24.329,0:17:30.330
health and work right just three very

0:17:26.880,0:17:33.450
basic categories if you had a system

0:17:30.330,0:17:37.470
whereby you had three calendars home

0:17:33.450,0:17:40.140
work health and you had three Dropbox

0:17:37.470,0:17:42.870
folders that were home health work and

0:17:40.140,0:17:46.410
if you had three Evernote notebooks

0:17:42.870,0:17:47.880
called home health work and then you had

0:17:46.410,0:17:49.890
your email and your email had three

0:17:47.880,0:17:52.770
folders home health work you see the

0:17:49.890,0:17:56.430
point that all of a sudden if you are

0:17:52.770,0:17:58.800
looking for something you now know there

0:17:56.430,0:18:01.290
are only three buckets in which you need

0:17:58.800,0:18:03.930
to really look for things in those very

0:18:01.290,0:18:07.230
broad categories and it also allows you

0:18:03.930,0:18:09.240
to be able to file faster that is when

0:18:07.230,0:18:10.740
something comes in if you need to deal

0:18:09.240,0:18:12.390
with it later you can anchor that in

0:18:10.740,0:18:14.160
your next action system or your task

0:18:12.390,0:18:17.190
list or whatever you might call it and

0:18:14.160,0:18:20.400
and then immediately put it into home

0:18:17.190,0:18:23.010
work or health and you don’t worry about

0:18:20.400,0:18:25.290
losing it there’s a sense of trust that

0:18:23.010,0:18:29.070
you now have to the integrity of your

0:18:25.290,0:18:31.320
system by being able to do so and I tell

0:18:29.070,0:18:34.560
you all of that to say that I am in a

0:18:31.320,0:18:37.650
massive rework of how I’m doing my own

0:18:34.560,0:18:39.810
system in that way that is renaming

0:18:37.650,0:18:41.940
things and recreating things so that

0:18:39.810,0:18:44.580
there is a little stronger integrity of

0:18:41.940,0:18:47.190
my action systems related to my

0:18:44.580,0:18:49.560
reference systems I use Evernote as a

0:18:47.190,0:18:51.930
reference system primarily and so I

0:18:49.560,0:18:54.990
really need to make sure that every note

0:18:51.930,0:18:58.170
matches my my task management system my

0:18:54.990,0:19:01.890
task manager and I felt like that really

0:18:58.170,0:19:03.360
wasn’t as well in tune and so that’s

0:19:01.890,0:19:06.660
where I’m working on it right now today

0:19:03.360,0:19:09.060
and I hope that by doing so I’ll be able

0:19:06.660,0:19:11.790
to get my hands on things faster and

0:19:09.060,0:19:14.220
I’ll also be able to get more things

0:19:11.790,0:19:16.680
done through the efficiencies that I’ll

0:19:14.220,0:19:18.990
be creating in making sure that my life

0:19:16.680,0:19:21.000
categories across the system are are

0:19:18.990,0:19:23.490
integrated well one thing I’ve been

0:19:21.000,0:19:25.200
struggling with recently it had a good

0:19:23.490,0:19:28.410
outcome because it helped me to identify

0:19:25.200,0:19:30.690
that it was an area that I could

0:19:28.410,0:19:33.150
articulate for my customers or my

0:19:30.690,0:19:35.730
readers that would make sense and what

0:19:33.150,0:19:37.500
it is is I noticed that in my schedule

0:19:35.730,0:19:39.330
there was often times when I would as

0:19:37.500,0:19:41.190
someone who more or less schedule

0:19:39.330,0:19:43.890
schedule everything their attempts when

0:19:41.190,0:19:47.310
I would depart from my schedule and not

0:19:43.890,0:19:49.860
account for it for a whole day or a

0:19:47.310,0:19:52.500
couple of days I just be way off my

0:19:49.860,0:19:52.980
calendar we’re operating outside of my

0:19:52.500,0:19:55.650
plan

0:19:52.980,0:19:57.330
without even referencing it now I have

0:19:55.650,0:19:59.580
the tools to be able to recover from it

0:19:57.330,0:20:00.180
in the form of sceptile which is an auto

0:19:59.580,0:20:04.180
sketch

0:20:00.180,0:20:06.940
but I wouldn’t have the discipline to go

0:20:04.180,0:20:09.220
back into sceptile and run it again to

0:20:06.940,0:20:11.350
reschedule my calendar whenever I

0:20:09.220,0:20:14.620
discovered I was off calendar which is I

0:20:11.350,0:20:18.790
was away from my plan so I tried setting

0:20:14.620,0:20:20.190
up a game to measure the times different

0:20:18.790,0:20:23.250
times in the day when I would be on

0:20:20.190,0:20:26.830
calendar versus off it would actually

0:20:23.250,0:20:28.630
prompt me to report whether I was on or

0:20:26.830,0:20:32.290
off at that particular time was a random

0:20:28.630,0:20:34.390
a random multiplication that helped but

0:20:32.290,0:20:36.190
as soon as the game finished I went back

0:20:34.390,0:20:39.040
into my old behaviors and that’s where I

0:20:36.190,0:20:41.710
am right now so III don’t have a

0:20:39.040,0:20:43.120
solution it’s a sort of an invented

0:20:41.710,0:20:45.130
problem because I haven’t never seen

0:20:43.120,0:20:48.820
anyone mentioned this particular issue

0:20:45.130,0:20:51.190
in their daily setup but it’s one that

0:20:48.820,0:20:53.950
I’m I want to fix but what came out of

0:20:51.190,0:20:56.410
it is noticing that there’s a super

0:20:53.950,0:20:59.290
power that people need to develop a

0:20:56.410,0:21:02.710
couple of them one is to detect when

0:20:59.290,0:21:06.250
their system is about to break so this

0:21:02.710,0:21:07.690
is this is beyond beyond just noticing

0:21:06.250,0:21:10.180
that you’re having a major problem that

0:21:07.690,0:21:12.850
you’re always late for example but it’s

0:21:10.180,0:21:15.400
noticing that there are some subtle

0:21:12.850,0:21:18.690
subtle signs that your time management

0:21:15.400,0:21:21.880
system is a is about to go bust and

0:21:18.690,0:21:23.500
notice what there was those sort of

0:21:21.880,0:21:26.310
signs happen to be so that’s the first

0:21:23.500,0:21:29.860
part the second part is taking those

0:21:26.310,0:21:33.670
weak signals and then converting them

0:21:29.860,0:21:35.500
into in-depth diagnosis kind of a like a

0:21:33.670,0:21:39.040
doctor hosts will do you know from the

0:21:35.500,0:21:40.960
TV show and then the third part is if

0:21:39.040,0:21:42.460
you’re able to do a good diagnosis

0:21:40.960,0:21:45.460
figure out what to implement and

0:21:42.460,0:21:47.380
implement it effectively so I recently

0:21:45.460,0:21:50.830
called them superpowers you know in a

0:21:47.380,0:21:55.060
poster I just did because they’re so so

0:21:50.830,0:21:56.950
much a part of everyone’s life but I’ve

0:21:55.060,0:21:59.200
never heard them quite said that way

0:21:56.950,0:22:03.100
that we need to develop these kind of

0:21:59.200,0:22:06.010
rare skills so that we stay far out of

0:22:03.100,0:22:08.170
trouble as opposed to figure out how to

0:22:06.010,0:22:10.660
dig ourselves out of trouble it’s kind

0:22:08.170,0:22:11.950
of like problem prevention in a way but

0:22:10.660,0:22:13.790
that came from the problem I’m having

0:22:11.950,0:22:18.020
the challenge I’m having right now

0:22:13.790,0:22:21.080
on schedule and that goes back to Q what

0:22:18.020,0:22:24.110
I was saying to integrity now on if I

0:22:21.080,0:22:26.420
tidy up this but very said honestly has

0:22:24.110,0:22:30.110
been able to honestly it’s been able to

0:22:26.420,0:22:32.390
admit that you go in a certain way out

0:22:30.110,0:22:35.960
of integrity would you stop flow in your

0:22:32.390,0:22:38.240
calendar and integrity is knowing that

0:22:35.960,0:22:40.310
you are not doing that and figured it

0:22:38.240,0:22:44.000
out that okay I need to go back to do

0:22:40.310,0:22:47.360
what I was doing but that’s that’s one

0:22:44.000,0:22:50.810
second is it’s important to mention that

0:22:47.360,0:22:54.230
one of the difficult issues with

0:22:50.810,0:22:59.390
integrity and they call that the bar so

0:22:54.230,0:23:01.520
everybody has amar and that said to you

0:22:59.390,0:23:03.140
know above this line and below this line

0:23:01.520,0:23:06.020
you are fine when you’re above the line

0:23:03.140,0:23:10.250
you’re not good with your below the line

0:23:06.020,0:23:12.410
so if if you think on what you just said

0:23:10.250,0:23:14.600
you know your line is sleep on the

0:23:12.410,0:23:18.590
calendar to a certain extent when you

0:23:14.600,0:23:21.500
are above that line then you’re fine you

0:23:18.590,0:23:23.330
are living into what you are supposed to

0:23:21.500,0:23:26.720
do you are doing the things they are

0:23:23.330,0:23:30.350
supposed to do same here the problem is

0:23:26.720,0:23:33.230
sometimes we don’t notice that we start

0:23:30.350,0:23:35.750
lowering that bar instead of raising

0:23:33.230,0:23:38.990
that bar problem is if you start

0:23:35.750,0:23:41.690
lowering the bar conscious or not a most

0:23:38.990,0:23:44.030
of the time it’s not you start also

0:23:41.690,0:23:46.010
lowering the bar on other areas when you

0:23:44.030,0:23:49.340
say you know what I have decided that

0:23:46.010,0:23:52.240
this work life is too stressful for me

0:23:49.340,0:23:56.390
and I am NOT going to work hard anymore

0:23:52.240,0:23:58.570
and I’m going to instead of try to you

0:23:56.390,0:24:01.850
know reach and girl I’m going to be

0:23:58.570,0:24:04.040
whatever is automatically lower in the

0:24:01.850,0:24:06.440
bar you are saying I’m not going to push

0:24:04.040,0:24:08.690
I’m not trying to improve and what you

0:24:06.440,0:24:11.470
may notice or not notice immediately

0:24:08.690,0:24:14.690
we’ve asked you start letting the bar

0:24:11.470,0:24:17.840
going down you may think it’s only

0:24:14.690,0:24:20.870
happen on your calendar but it will

0:24:17.840,0:24:23.300
start happening and influence many other

0:24:20.870,0:24:26.150
different bars that you have on your

0:24:23.300,0:24:27.470
life and everything will start coming

0:24:26.150,0:24:30.950
down and

0:24:27.470,0:24:34.730
and down there is an author and that it

0:24:30.950,0:24:38.629
says whatever is not growing is time and

0:24:34.730,0:24:42.529
the fact with this proverbial bar is

0:24:38.629,0:24:46.429
exactly the same thing you can go and I

0:24:42.529,0:24:48.740
wish to tell you after I don’t know how

0:24:46.429,0:24:51.919
many years reading and writing and

0:24:48.740,0:24:55.159
teaching productivity that I finally

0:24:51.919,0:24:57.769
reach the proverbial place and then my

0:24:55.159,0:24:59.000
bar is said and it will not need to be

0:24:57.769,0:25:00.980
move anymore

0:24:59.000,0:25:05.690
but what I have learned over the years

0:25:00.980,0:25:09.500
in personal productivity is that the

0:25:05.690,0:25:13.750
more you raise the bar the more you need

0:25:09.500,0:25:17.720
to raise the bar and it’s difficult

0:25:13.750,0:25:20.539
every time you need to raise that bar as

0:25:17.720,0:25:22.070
I explained and you need to revamp your

0:25:20.539,0:25:25.129
system and you need to rework your

0:25:22.070,0:25:28.629
system it is difficult and it is a

0:25:25.129,0:25:31.340
struggle doesn’t matter how effective

0:25:28.629,0:25:34.549
efficient and how much integrity your

0:25:31.340,0:25:39.519
current system has there is a moment

0:25:34.549,0:25:43.070
when that will not be enough anymore

0:25:39.519,0:25:45.559
well now you want to move to the next

0:25:43.070,0:25:49.250
place and in order to move to the next

0:25:45.559,0:25:52.009
place that assumption of integrity and

0:25:49.250,0:25:56.600
that proverbial bar need to be raised

0:25:52.009,0:25:59.299
again and if you choose not to and

0:25:56.600,0:26:01.669
that’s always a choice what’s going to

0:25:59.299,0:26:04.549
happen is that bar is going to start

0:26:01.669,0:26:08.600
coming down until you hit rock bottom

0:26:04.549,0:26:10.820
and Rock button can be the last time you

0:26:08.600,0:26:13.279
said or the private level you set the

0:26:10.820,0:26:15.679
bar or maybe three or four levels below

0:26:13.279,0:26:17.840
that I don’t know it will depend from

0:26:15.679,0:26:21.230
people to people but what I can assure

0:26:17.840,0:26:24.350
you is if you start letting the bar

0:26:21.230,0:26:26.629
going down the bar is not going down on

0:26:24.350,0:26:28.730
one area it’s not like oh well you know

0:26:26.629,0:26:33.049
I don’t follow the calendar anymore um I

0:26:28.730,0:26:35.840
work three will well I promise you that

0:26:33.049,0:26:38.539
your life is going to start being

0:26:35.840,0:26:40.770
influenced by those things it may be the

0:26:38.539,0:26:43.320
calendar and sooner now

0:26:40.770,0:26:45.840
areas of your life are also going to be

0:26:43.320,0:26:50.610
suffering from that lack of integrity

0:26:45.840,0:26:55.350
because the fact is that you are a one

0:26:50.610,0:26:58.560
person or one self and or you are or you

0:26:55.350,0:27:01.320
play with integrity or you do not play

0:26:58.560,0:27:04.650
with integrity you may have different

0:27:01.320,0:27:08.190
levels of integrity from different areas

0:27:04.650,0:27:12.720
of your life but you play with integrity

0:27:08.190,0:27:14.940
or you do not play with integrity just

0:27:12.720,0:27:18.570
in in summary I think it’s really

0:27:14.940,0:27:22.230
important for people to not lose heart

0:27:18.570,0:27:24.330
when you realize that your system may

0:27:22.230,0:27:26.820
not be as integral and that you may not

0:27:24.330,0:27:30.120
be living with the standard of integrity

0:27:26.820,0:27:32.550
that you might feel you should because

0:27:30.120,0:27:36.000
shoulds woods kids once those are all

0:27:32.550,0:27:38.600
not reality okay and the the the

0:27:36.000,0:27:42.090
circumstances what are you right now and

0:27:38.600,0:27:45.750
you either change it or you don’t

0:27:42.090,0:27:47.580
okay and thinking negatively about the

0:27:45.750,0:27:50.130
situation is not necessarily gonna bring

0:27:47.580,0:27:52.560
you a lot of positive movement it’s not

0:27:50.130,0:27:54.060
going to motivate you typically and I

0:27:52.560,0:27:57.360
and I tend to think that fear-based

0:27:54.060,0:27:59.520
motivations are attend not to allow for

0:27:57.360,0:28:02.460
lasting growth sort of I’m a positive

0:27:59.520,0:28:03.780
behaviorist in that sense so punishment

0:28:02.460,0:28:06.600
I don’t believe are though the ways

0:28:03.780,0:28:09.390
forward to a greater integrity with your

0:28:06.600,0:28:11.820
personal productivity system so I highly

0:28:09.390,0:28:14.430
encourage people to think positively

0:28:11.820,0:28:17.850
about it even when you first start out

0:28:14.430,0:28:20.430
with a negative a negative sense of the

0:28:17.850,0:28:21.840
system that is your your having negative

0:28:20.430,0:28:24.750
consequences you’re not getting things

0:28:21.840,0:28:26.480
done and you need to or want to well

0:28:24.750,0:28:29.640
that’s great now you can at least

0:28:26.480,0:28:31.710
recognize that but now look at it from

0:28:29.640,0:28:34.260
as I said before a positive and

0:28:31.710,0:28:36.570
constructive perspective lean into the

0:28:34.260,0:28:38.430
positive and constructive and I think

0:28:36.570,0:28:41.610
that you can then start to clean up the

0:28:38.430,0:28:44.610
system and look for gaps typically where

0:28:41.610,0:28:47.730
I see lack of integrity with clients is

0:28:44.610,0:28:50.760
them missing parts of their world that

0:28:47.730,0:28:52.999
need a system so that they look at say

0:28:50.760,0:28:55.759
they have a bunch of magazines that they

0:28:52.999,0:28:57.469
to read digital or paper and so they

0:28:55.759,0:28:59.359
either see the pile or they have a list

0:28:57.469,0:29:02.059
of magazines that they want to read or

0:28:59.359,0:29:04.669
list of books or list of articles where

0:29:02.059,0:29:08.089
they have read it later applications

0:29:04.669,0:29:10.069
like pocket or Instapaper or like for me

0:29:08.089,0:29:14.299
I have that in Evernote and it’s just a

0:29:10.069,0:29:16.189
you know a big pile of stuff right

0:29:14.299,0:29:19.129
things that want they need to meet or

0:29:16.189,0:29:20.959
want to do and it hasn’t been done and

0:29:19.129,0:29:23.089
that gives them that sense of overwhelm

0:29:20.959,0:29:24.529
and then feeling a lack of integrity to

0:29:23.089,0:29:25.999
their system they’re not maintaining

0:29:24.529,0:29:28.759
their system in a way in which they said

0:29:25.999,0:29:31.279
they would well that’s fine just don’t

0:29:28.759,0:29:33.469
don’t harp on the on the fact that you

0:29:31.279,0:29:35.509
know you’re not doing it really focus

0:29:33.469,0:29:37.759
that energy more productively and

0:29:35.509,0:29:39.679
constructively on doing something about

0:29:37.759,0:29:43.099
it which is are you gonna declare

0:29:39.679,0:29:45.289
bankruptcy on your the pile that exists

0:29:43.099,0:29:47.569
already or are you gonna process are you

0:29:45.289,0:29:50.089
gonna take today’s yesterday’s and the

0:29:47.569,0:29:53.269
oldest statement days materials and read

0:29:50.089,0:29:55.489
those and then tomorrow do today’s

0:29:53.269,0:29:57.709
anything you didn’t catch yesterday and

0:29:55.489,0:29:59.989
the oldest days material and you’ll be

0:29:57.709,0:30:02.779
surprised over time how quickly you can

0:29:59.989,0:30:05.509
regain integrity through maintenance

0:30:02.779,0:30:07.819
then you can through all the negative

0:30:05.509,0:30:10.129
thinking in the world okay so I really

0:30:07.819,0:30:11.209
hope that people can create greater

0:30:10.129,0:30:13.339
integrity and their personal

0:30:11.209,0:30:17.029
productivity systems through positive

0:30:13.339,0:30:18.709
constructive thinking using a it’s

0:30:17.029,0:30:23.149
better to improve your integrity when

0:30:18.709,0:30:25.189
you are in a positive space because you

0:30:23.149,0:30:26.959
must improve it it’s it’s just it’s only

0:30:25.189,0:30:29.359
a question of are you gonna do it when

0:30:26.959,0:30:33.799
you’re miserable or are you gonna do it

0:30:29.359,0:30:36.709
when you’re empowered you must do it

0:30:33.799,0:30:40.779
it’s much easier to do if you’re in the

0:30:36.709,0:30:43.249
latter if you’re present and you’re

0:30:40.779,0:30:44.269
confident or you have some momentum

0:30:43.249,0:30:46.549
behind you

0:30:44.269,0:30:49.879
you know inevitably that’s not what we

0:30:46.549,0:30:52.069
do but that is the best time to start to

0:30:49.879,0:30:54.319
deal with yourself and deal with all of

0:30:52.069,0:30:56.029
your different areas of your life at one

0:30:54.319,0:30:58.819
point I remember finished completing a

0:30:56.029,0:31:00.499
100 point checklist for integrity and it

0:30:58.819,0:31:02.119
was very very very useful it’s not a

0:31:00.499,0:31:04.099
really good time in my life also so

0:31:02.119,0:31:06.090
that’s that out on the line which you

0:31:04.099,0:31:10.170
just said and what Augusto said

0:31:06.090,0:31:12.930
I think we are in a weird agreement that

0:31:10.170,0:31:15.090
and I love that you can do it when you

0:31:12.930,0:31:18.330
are empowered when you can wait until

0:31:15.090,0:31:18.990
you are defeated but you are going to do

0:31:18.330,0:31:20.730
it anyway

0:31:18.990,0:31:23.390
or most people will need to do it

0:31:20.730,0:31:26.520
anyways going back to the beginning of

0:31:23.390,0:31:29.700
of our cast not only you are going to

0:31:26.520,0:31:33.210
need to do it it’s a five you can choose

0:31:29.700,0:31:36.120
not to do it and that is a five I mean I

0:31:33.210,0:31:38.040
have suddently most of the people who

0:31:36.120,0:31:40.860
will choose not to do it or not

0:31:38.040,0:31:43.140
listening to this if you are probably

0:31:40.860,0:31:45.990
listening to this is because you think

0:31:43.140,0:31:48.210
or you are doing something about it or

0:31:45.990,0:31:51.000
you need to do something about it or you

0:31:48.210,0:31:54.060
have done it already in the past and the

0:31:51.000,0:31:56.130
second and last thing I want to say is

0:31:54.060,0:32:01.980
that it’s important and write mention

0:31:56.130,0:32:05.520
this whatever time it took you to get to

0:32:01.980,0:32:08.280
the place you are it’s going to take you

0:32:05.520,0:32:12.420
double to get to the place you want to

0:32:08.280,0:32:16.890
go that is really really important to

0:32:12.420,0:32:19.950
remember because people lost those

0:32:16.890,0:32:21.870
tracks you know if I’ve Frances put up

0:32:19.950,0:32:24.990
an example where I go a couple of days

0:32:21.870,0:32:28.800
and I love struggle my column hey I have

0:32:24.990,0:32:30.960
done that okay or I get a fire you know

0:32:28.800,0:32:33.270
a week that I just fighting fire – fire

0:32:30.960,0:32:35.880
– fire – fire – fire and come Thursday

0:32:33.270,0:32:39.780
and I have not even opened my system

0:32:35.880,0:32:43.530
those happen but remember that when you

0:32:39.780,0:32:46.230
get to that point in order to get back

0:32:43.530,0:32:48.900
to where you want is going to take you

0:32:46.230,0:32:51.390
double of the time in other words it

0:32:48.900,0:32:53.610
took us four days to get to that level

0:32:51.390,0:32:55.950
of couch is not going to take you four

0:32:53.610,0:32:57.690
hours to get out of there it’s probably

0:32:55.950,0:33:00.990
going to take a good eight because you

0:32:57.690,0:33:03.900
will not be able to stop everything in

0:33:00.990,0:33:06.110
order to get out of it one of the most

0:33:03.900,0:33:09.420
foolish things we tend to think

0:33:06.110,0:33:12.390
Confessional productivity is tomorrow I

0:33:09.420,0:33:14.970
will have more time now tomorrow you

0:33:12.390,0:33:16.470
will have less time that’s a fact

0:33:14.970,0:33:18.300
because you are going to need to do

0:33:16.470,0:33:20.010
everything that you are green today but

0:33:18.300,0:33:22.320
every plus

0:33:20.010,0:33:26.070
everything that is just showing up so

0:33:22.320,0:33:28.860
remember when you get to that point in

0:33:26.070,0:33:32.100
order to get out it’s going to take you

0:33:28.860,0:33:35.390
double of the time you get there and the

0:33:32.100,0:33:38.280
reason I said that I mean force that is

0:33:35.390,0:33:41.100
because it’s important to remember said

0:33:38.280,0:33:42.720
you are kind with yourself because it

0:33:41.100,0:33:45.900
will not do any good

0:33:42.720,0:33:48.300
after did you go for days without

0:33:45.900,0:33:50.850
checking everything out of track and you

0:33:48.300,0:33:53.670
get to that place I spend the next eight

0:33:50.850,0:33:55.950
or nine telling yourself and remind me

0:33:53.670,0:33:57.630
yourself how behind you are hey you are

0:33:55.950,0:34:00.780
behind that’s a fact

0:33:57.630,0:34:02.640
move on now let’s plan to get out that’s

0:34:00.780,0:34:05.100
a perfect note for us to end this
