Create Space For Your Best Work.

I exercise first thing every day. I haven’t missed a day since Sept 1, 2013!

I take my phone because I use it for music and to log my workout. After the gym I sit for meditation practice.

Then I do my most important “deep work” — writing, thinking about client problems and how to solve them, creating business development strategy, planning, etc.

TIP:
I keep my phone on Do Not Disturb.

As a general rule, I do not check email/social/phone or take meetings before noon. My phone stays on DND the whole time. I also keep it on DND when I’m with clients, so that it doesn’t interrupt us.

I do break the rule sometimes but I apply a lot of discernment to when I will do that.

This helps me get the important work done before I start responding to clients and dealing with everyone else’s urgencies. Before I did this I spent a lot of time doing things that didn’t move me forward in my business, because I was constantly reacting.

Not right now, too many injuries.  When I do exercise I always have my phone with me... because that's where my Pandora streaming music program lives.  When I was at the level of exercise where I was tracking all my workouts, my tracking app was on there too.  I'd typically ignore emails, texts and calls unless they were from my folks or someone I was waiting for a call from... and even then it depended on where I was in the workout.

I workout 4-5/week.  Unfortunately, my phone is glued to my hand, and my workouts often suffer.  Just the other day, I was mid-work out and learned that a property my client was about to submit an offer on was now in a multiple offer situation.  I ran out to my car grabbed my laptop, revised the offer and sent it back to my client for signatures, and then resumed my workout.  I think I may need to start utilizing airplane mode at the gym.

Always.

I'm out there making fat cry on a 10 mile run.

Some marketer calls and I'm huffing and puffing advising I'm in the midst of intervals.  They don't break their stride and keep on yapping. 

Yep, they invariably call back citing 'I think we had a bad connection."

I assure them they do have a bad connection and hit disconnect again.
