1. Find Your North Star: Embrace Your Values

Often, you can feel lost when you don’t fully know your values and you’re not acting in accordance to them.

When you know what gives you light and meaning, it’s easy to know where to put your time and energy.

Do you value family?




Diving deep into your top values will help you take the first step toward what it is you really want.

Then, you can audit your life.

find your north star values

Are all of your actions in line with your values?

If not, where can you start to change things and switch things up? 

Discovering your North Star is the first step towards achieving meaningful goals.

This is where meditation, support and having a sounding board to self-reflect are super helpful.

When your goals are aligned with your values, you'll experience a profound sense of purpose and drive.

Things start to snowball and fall into place.

2. Carve Out Time for Joy: Fuel Your Creativity

Amidst the hustle and bustle of goal pursuit, it's crucial to prioritize activities that bring you joy.

It’s not about working harder or putting in dreadful hours on end.

That’s the fast track to burnout.

By dedicating time to do things you genuinely enjoy, you nurture your creativity and recharge your energy.

Carve out time for things that light you up even if you don’t think you have time.

If you claim you don’t have enough time, start to take a look at what you are giving time to.

See if you can start with finding 5 minutes in your day.

When you take time to recharge and prioritize your joy and creativity, you will actually find that you are more productive, full of ideas, and ready to take on the world from a whole new angle. 

In my Brain Hacking Blueprint, I always encourage you to embrace hobbies, indulge in self-care, and explore new experiences.

Remember, when you give yourself permission to find joy outside of work without any pressure, you'll discover a vast abundance of inspiration that enhances your productivity and overall satisfaction.

3. Pomodoro Technique: Boost Focus and Productivity

Say hello to the Pomodoro Technique, a time management strategy that optimizes your focus and productivity. 

When you are feeling recharged by creativity, a great way to manage your time is by breaking your work into manageable intervals.

Typically 25 minutes of intense focus followed by a short break, you create a rhythm that maximizes your efficiency. 

You can do 2-4 rounds of 25 minutes of deep focus followed by 5 minutes of pure rest.

After 2-4 rounds, you can go for a walk, exercise or take a longer break to recharge. 

This is a great way to get your most important tasks done. 

Try one round first, and see how it goes for you!

4. Tranquil Triumph Technique: Prioritize and Conquer

Amidst a sea of tasks and responsibilities, I created the Tranquil Triumph Technique to feel less stressed as you prioritize your day.

This technique has a few steps in order to optimize it.

First, put a timer on for 10 minutes and list out all of the things on the top of your head that you need to complete.

Then, start to prioritize these by writing down when these tasks need to get done.

Once you get a feel for priority, start to schedule in the highest priority tasks into your week… putting them in spots that you would have the most energy.

Only give yourself one big task a day.

After you complete this task, you can move on to smaller tasks, but the goal is that you commit yourself to one thing a day.

This builds trust with yourself and you have tangible evidence that you’re moving toward your goals.

By focusing your energy on this pivotal task, you'll experience a sense of tranquility and triumph as you make meaningful progress.

5. Visualize and Schedule Your Success

The power of visualization is truly remarkable when it comes to achieving your goals.

By deliberately imagining how you want your day to unfold and taking the time to proactively schedule your activities, you set yourself up for success.

Take some time at the beginning of your week to plan out how you want your days to look.

Where can you schedule in things you enjoy, exercise, and spending time with family and friends. 

When you engage in visualization, you tap into the immense power of your subconscious mind.

By vividly picturing yourself accomplishing your goals, experiencing the desired outcomes, and embracing the emotions associated with success, you activate your brain's reticular activating system (RAS).

This powerful mechanism heightens your awareness, attention, and focus, directing your energy towards opportunities that align with your goals.
