Our mindsets determine the way we see the world, as well as, the way we behave and who we are as people.
It’s very easy and normal to stay stuck in fixed mindsets - limiting beliefs about our abilities and skills that prevents us to learn new things.
We can intentionally cultivate a growth mindset that allows to stretch our mind and amplify the realm of possibilities of what we do, and who we are.
Amplifying our mindsets is one of the secrets of success, from most entrepreneurs, freelancers and self-employed professionals and professionals out there.

To conclude my series of podcast episodes about the importance of “Focusing”, I was honored to interview Greg McKeown, author of the New York Times Best Seller Book – Essentialism: the Disciplined Pursuit of Less.

Greg has taught at companies that include Apple, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Salesforce, and Pixar.

He is also an amazing keynote speaker that I had the opportunity to meet at the ICON15– The InfusionSoft Annual Conference held in Phoenix, Arizona.

Here are some of the topics we spoke about:

  • What is “Essentialism”?
  • Information and opinion overload
  • Emails in mobile devices as a distraction
  • Discern between the vital few and the trivial many
  • Becoming an essentialist is not an event, it’s a process
  • Importance of pressing the pause button
  • Small changes produce big results
  • The power of a short breathing exercise
  • The paradox of success
  • Essentialism is not one more thing
  • Essentialism is a journey
  • Three Simple Daily Practices to Become an Essentialist:
    1. Press the pause button – Breath slowly for 3 breaths
    2. Top Six Priorities – Focus on the first one: The Priority
    3. Write Down Five Successful Trade-offs and Celebrate that!
