This week's video grapples with a question every entrepreneur eventually faces: When you're hiring, should you buy back your own time or ramp up business growth?
It's a nuanced dilemma—like choosing between upgrading the engine versus the handling in a race car.
Both are essential, but which one needs your attention first? If you're revved up and ready to shift your business into the next gear, you won't want to miss this week’s insights.
The answer may surprise you, and it'll certainly make you think before you make your next hiring decision.
Not getting the results you want?
You might just be bored. And boredom is tough.
But let's diagnosis why the enthusiasm for your original entrepreneurial dream started to decline.
It's because your task list is disconnected from your core values. It's because your current environment is not relevant to your true goals.
In this week's challenge, we will discuss building the bridge between to-do's and the dream. Decide. Believe. Connect.
There's a great (free) resource brought to you by someone I highly regard and mention in the video.

By adopting the mentality that you genuinely love what you do at the onset of your day, you not only elevate your mood but supercharge your energy reservoirs.
Think of it as flipping on a switch in your mind to turn on your enthusiasm for the work you were about to do anyway.
Participate in this week's productivity micro-challenge, and witness a transformation that takes less time than tying your shoelaces. Watch it here.
I was traveling when I recorded this.
And I forgot my computer power cord. It got me thinking about things that typically go wrong in my work life.
As much as I have refined my own productivity methods to work effectively, I'm still forgetful!
This is when I coach myself and you at the same time. What could go wrong? How am I going to prepare for it? And how are you going to?
A river doesn’t use willpower to flow through the landscape. It just glides downhill effortlessly.
Just like that river, your focus can flow in the right directions when your environment is molded for success. This week's video challenges you to re-engineer your surroundings.
Instead of solely relying on willpower, make your environment pull out the most productive version of you.
Think of it as creating a riverbed for your daily energy, directing it where you most want it to flow.
All productivity comes down to is decision-making.
Let's break that down in this week's challenge.
Decision management is more important than time management. And I have just two rules to help you make better decisions when it comes to how you use your energy, focus, and time.
In this video we'll explore:

Even the accomplished farsighted entrepreneur can find themselves in a moment of depleted willpower.
You don't feel like doing anything. But at the same time you know your action is required to get to your goals.
How do you flex your self-control muscle? How can you take the plunge when motivation isn't there? You can develop this skill and act before you FEEL like it.
This week, we dive into the energy-sucking quicksand of suppressed emotions. Think of it as a leaking pipe in your hydraulic power supply, slowly draining your mental horsepower and charisma.
But, there's a remedy: Reappraisal, our brain's own Swiss Army Knife.
It's not about denying your feelings but masterfully reframing situations, debunking faulty assumptions. Building this small cognitive habit will impact your mental horsepower, and that's what our video is about today.
Imagine yourself as an explorer on a quest for new opportunities.
On that journey, you’ll need to make it past a treacherous swamp called “Fear.”
This week, we unveil a compass that can guide you past fear, into the heart of confident decision-making.
It's all about following a strategy that not only charts new territories but also promises a safe return, even if you stumble into a dead end. Empowered by this, you operate from a base of confidence and control, rather than fear.
Curious? Our latest video serves as your navigational guide to this empowering strategy.
Are you ready for a truth bomb about your tendencies?
Your brain is getting satisfied when you take action. It feels good to check something off the old to-do list.
But your brain isn't always your best friend.
It's intentionally putting off tasks that are the most important because they take your energy and full effort. Procrastivity is a tricky game you play to avoid meaningful productivity, and it can be an even bigger issue for people dealing with ADHD.
