🍋 2. Stop Asking “Can I Squeeze This In?” – Article from Quartz

There’s a reason we keep getting busier and busier.

Every time a new project, request, meeting, task, or idea comes along, we ask ourself:

“Can I squeeze this in?”

And we always say, “I’ll make it work.”

But “making it work” usually means cramming one more thing into an already packed schedule.

But there’s a hidden cost.

And it takes place in our brain.

When our schedule is 100% full, we rarely activate the Default Mode Network (DMN) in our brain.

The DMN “activates old memories, swaps between the past, present, and future, and recombines different ideas.”

Without engaging the DMN, we stop having creative ideas.

You may notice that you get your best ideas in the shower.

That’s the DMN at work for you.

If the DMN isn’t activated regularly, that’s a big problem.

So what’s the solution?

Less busyness.

Next time you think, “Can I squeeze this in?,” I want you to try this:

It’s called the “One In, One Out” Rule.

It comes from a minimalist way to reduce clutter in your home:

Every time you bring something new into the house, you must remove an item.

Let’s apply it to our schedule as well:

I call it: “One Task In, One Task Out.”

When you commit to another task or project, you must remove one as well.

If you apply this, you’ll find you:

  • Are less busy
  • Are less stressed
  • Have more time to think
  • Take on more activities and projects that you actually enjoy

Try it out this year, and let me know what you think.

🤖 3. Using AI To Work Less In 2023

If you’re not up to the minute on the Twitter discourse, 2023 is the year of AI.

We are in VERY early stages of AI.

If you want a primer on where this could be headed, check out this video from Alex Hormozi.

AI will be an indispensable part of the creation process in the coming years.

Use these 5 AI tools to work smarter, not harder, this year!

  1. Midjourney – Use to create social share images, blog post cover images, or concept art.
  2. ChatGPT – Write just about anything. Video scripts, blog posts, social media content. The uses are endless.
  3. DALL-E – Create layouts and color palettes for designs (Instagram, landing pages, etc.)
  4. vidIQ AI Title Recommendations – Use to riff on high performing video titles, hooks, and content starters.
  5. Hemingway – Make your text more readable.
  6. Tweethunter – Use AI to write high-performing tweets and social media content.

🧘 4. Free Online Yoga Class I’m Taking This January – CENTER by Yoga With Adriene

I’ve been doing yoga on and off for the last 12 years.

I’ve had times where I practiced every day for more than a year straight.

And other years where I only did it once our twice.

I’m diving back in this year.

Each January, Yoga With Adriene on YouTube does a 30 day yoga challenge.

My wife and I have done the challenge before in past years, and really enjoyed it.

This year’s theme is CENTER.

It’s a totally free 30 day challenge, with a new video every day on her channel.

Worth checking out if you’re trying to get back on the mat, or if you’re a beginner who is curious.

It’s not too late to join!
