“The healthier I am, the more energy I then have to apply to my work.”
— Jeff Sanders

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined once again by Jeff Sanders. Jeff is a keynote speaker, and the author of The Free-Time Formula and The 5 AM Miracle, which we talked about in our previous episode together. He is also the host of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast, which has ranked #1 in iTunes in the Self-Help and Business categories, been nominated for 6 Podcast Awards, and exceeded 6 million downloads. That is a very impressive number, let me tell you from one podcaster to another.

As you guys know, Jeff and I see eye-to-eye on many things, productivity and beyond. Therefore, this episode is a wide-ranging and casual conversation. We talk about Jeff's latest book, we talk about the anxiety and stress breakdown that led to writing that book, and we get into some philosophical questions about “what the point is” and “why you should free up your time, plus why you shouldn't”.

I really enjoyed the conversation, which is a pretty good indicator that you will do the same. So, without any further ado, go ahead and listen to the episode with my SuperFriend, Mr. Jeff Sanders.

Favorite Quotes from Jeff Sanders:

“I realized that a large chunk of what I had scheduled were things that I now consider to be nonsense.”
“It's really just about the priority and the order of which the things get done, to make sure that I can just say yes to what matters now.”
“It's important to push to know where our limits are, but without breaking ourselves.”
“If I can put in 4 to 6 solid, focused hours, I can get a lot of work done.”
