Feel Better, Do More


“How have you been?”

“Good! Super busy.”

That’s the common answer to what is probably the most common question … and that makes me sad.

We love being busy. If we’re busy, we must matter, right?

I’ve never been good at being busy, which is probably why I didn’t last long in the corporate world. I like to have time to do the things I like doing, not the stuff I feel like I have to do.

So that’s my focus in today’s episode of No Meat Athlete Radio: not a time management system in the traditional sense (those have never worked for me) but an approach to making choices that maximize the time available to you. So that you can find the time to eat well, exercise, and be happy … all without being “super busy.”

Here’s what I talk about in this episode:

  • Why time management systems don’t work for me
  • Our modern love affair with “busy”
  • How to ruthlessly cut the activities that drain your time and energy
  • Creating time by adding new activities
  • Does eating healthy save me time and make me more efficient?
  • Why Steve Jobs wore the same shirt every day

  1. I love your website, and I’d like to get into all your content, but its not possible for me to listen to the podcasts. I really wish your content was transcribed.

  2. Yeah, what’s with everyone being “super busy” all the time? I really think happiness is underrated, and being busy is overrated. Literally everyone is saying that these days, and besides that, I know for a fact they’re not that busy. 😛
