Everyone, if she is good. Andy Griffith It was the heart of any scam or fiddle -- keep the punter uncertain, or, if he is certain, make him certain of the wrong thing. Terry Pratchett The best, very best scammers will always ask for your advice. This is their favorite technique. It makes them vulnerable. It flatters your ego.

DEMYSTIFYING THE DIGITAL DETOX #147

8/27/2023
If using electronic media causes you to have any of the following experiences, it’s a sign that you may need to disconnect. · Depressed mood. · Increased irritability, frustration, or anger. · Feeling insecure. · Loss of sleep or interrupted sleep. · Feeling obligated to consume, respond, react, or check in.

Once Facebook had a permanent place in my pocket, it became a permanent portal—able to transport me away from my family. Even if we were physically in the same room, I wasn’t necessarily there with them. Facebook was no longer simply a naptime vacation but an all-day form of escapism. Wendy Speake A red flag is if you’re losing interest in being social in person because you’d rather just connect with people online.

DIVING INTO DEEP WORK #146

8/20/2023
Cal Newport's book "Deep Work" serves as a counterbalance to the distractions of today's world by providing strategies and principles to reclaim focus, productivity, and meaningful work in an environment characterized by constant interruptions and information overload.

Cal Newport What we choose to focus on and what we choose to ignore—plays in defining the quality of our life. Cal Newport I build my days around a core of carefully chosen deep work, with the shallow activities I absolutely cannot avoid batched into smaller bursts at the peripheries of my schedule. Three to four hours a day, five days a week, of uninterrupted and carefully directed concentration, it turns out, can produce a lot of valuable output. Cal Newport People need to stop thinking about one task in order to fully transition their attention and perform well on another. Yet, results indicate it is difficult for people to transition their attention away from an unfinished task and their subsequent task performance suffers. Cal Newport [Great creative minds] think like artists but work like accountants. Cal Newport Clarity about what matters provides clarity about what does not.

THE SPOTLIGHT EFFECT #145

8/13/2023
The Spotlight Effect is a cognitive bias that often leads us to overestimate the extent to which our actions or perceived flaws are noticed and remembered by others. It's well demonstrated by this quote "You wouldn't worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do." Eleanor Roosevelt For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/ Show links: OFFICIAL WEBSITE: https://www.filmproproductivity.com/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/FilmProProdPod FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/filmproproductivity CONTACT: https://www.filmproproductivity.com/contact INDIE FILM HUSTLE: https://indiefilmhustle.com/ifh-podcast-network-filmmaking-and-screenwriting/ YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqo0Zld2Lm2lJDpDh3GsuZg QUOTES: You wouldn't worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do. Eleanor Roosevelt Self-importance is a trap because the moment we start to think that we actually matter is the moment when things start to go wrong. The truth is that you are supremely unimportant and nothing matters. All of man's striving is for nothing; all effort is wasted. To realize that everything is meaningless is tremendously liberating since it then leaves us completely free to create our own lives and ignore the plans that others have for us. Tom Hodgkinson I am forever grateful that I got some training in the theatre - it reduces performance anxiety. Julia Stiles If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

CUTTING IT UP WITH OCCAM'S RAZOR #144

Albert Einstein Entities should not be multiplied beyond necessity. William of Ockham Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things. Isaac Newton That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.

THE SECRET OF TIME BLOCKING #143

7/30/2023
Time blocking is a productivity technique that involves scheduling specific time blocks for different activities or tasks throughout your day. By dedicating focused periods of time to specific activities, you can enhance your efficiency, prioritize important tasks, and minimize distractions.

Stephen Covey A 40-hour time-blocked work week, I estimate, produces the same amount of output as a 60+ hour work week pursued without structure. Cal Newport Time blocking is about being intentional with your time rather than reactive. Cal Newport Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.

DON'T BE A USEFUL IDIOT #142

7/23/2023
The Cambridge Dictionary describes a useful idiot as a person who is easy to persuade to do, say, or believe things that help a particular group or another person politically. It typically refers to individuals who are perceived as unwittingly supporting or promoting a cause or ideology that may be against their own best interests. It suggests too that they are being manipulated or used by others for their own agenda.

7/16/2023

That is pattern recognition in its most easily recognised form, but how many of you time and time again find yourself falling into that pattern, in your day-to-day life?

Marshall McLuhan If we keep doing what we're doing, we're going to keep getting what we're getting. Steven Covey. It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. Aristotle The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success.

THREE PEARLS OF INVALUABLE WISDOM - #139

7/2/2023
A Pearl of wisdom is a piece of wise advice, that is metaphorically as precious as a pearl. The phrase has been about for centuries and came about I believe as pearls themselves take a long time to form, just like the wise words of knowledge that they are compared to. This is another short episode, but it’s packed full of invaluable advice.

It's a moral obligation to dig deep and find that little glimmer of hope or pearl of wisdom. Andrea Pirlo It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.

MALICE or INCOMPETENCE #138

6/25/2023
Hanlon’s Razor is a mental model, often quoted as ‘Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by neglect.’ And it is derived originally from something Napoleon Bonaparte famously declared in 1774: 'Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.” For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/ Show links: OFFICIAL WEBSITE: https://www.filmproproductivity.com/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/FilmProProdPod FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/filmproproductivity CONTACT: https://www.filmproproductivity.com/contact INDIE FILM HUSTLE: https://indiefilmhustle.com/ifh-podcast-network-filmmaking-and-screenwriting/ YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqo0Zld2Lm2lJDpDh3GsuZg QUOTES: I would add a clumsier but more accurate corollary to this: ‘Never attribute to malice or stupidity that which can be explained by moderately rational individuals following incentives in a complex system of interactions.’ People behaving with no central coordination and acting in their own best interest can still create results that appear to some to be clear proof of conspiracy or a plague of ignorance.

LIMITING MIND VIRUSES #137

6/18/2023
A limiting mind virus is simply a limiting belief - a state of mind or belief about yourself that restricts you in some way. Today I talk about these limiting beliefs, how to identify them within yourself, and how to get around them. Do you have a limiting belief or more than one? Not sure? Then ask yourself this question: WHAT IS THE DISCONNECT BETWEEN WHAT I DESERVE AND WHAT I BELIEVE I DESERVE? For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/ Show links: OFFICIAL WEBSITE: https://www.filmproproductivity.com/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/FilmProProdPod FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/filmproproductivity CONTACT: https://www.filmproproductivity.com/contact INDIE FILM HUSTLE: https://indiefilmhustle.com/ifh-podcast-network-filmmaking-and-screenwriting/ YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqo0Zld2Lm2lJDpDh3GsuZg QUOTES: There is one grand lie - that we are limited. The only limits we have are the limits we believe. Wayne Dyer You can't escape from a prison until you recognize you are in one. People who have chosen to live within the limits of their old beliefs continue to have the same experiences. It takes effort and commitment to break old patterns Bob Proctor If you raise your standards but don't really believe you can meet them, you've already sabotaged yourself. You won't even try; you'll be lacking the sense of certainty that allows you to tap the deepest capacity that's within you... Our beliefs are like unquestioned commands, telling us how things are, what's possible and impossible and what we can and cannot do. They shape every action, every thought and every feeling that we experience. As a result, changing our belief systems is central to making any real and lasting change in our lives. Tony Robbins If you accept a limiting belief, then it will become a truth for you.
