Facts / Strategy learnings:

  • the goal is emerging into the best version of you and live up into your full potential 
  • to take a stand and be authentic who you are takes courage but it absolutely rewarding
  • having a different opinion is fine, skip the Yes-sayer and fake play, it is healthy also to not agree
  • to set your mind back up the best is to work in chunks of 60-90 minutes and then take a 10-30 min. break to be productive, nobody can work 8 hours straight
  • set up systems to escape the trap of trading time for money
  • share your opinion and accept others, to be fully aligned is illusionary

Tips & Tricks / Secrets:

  • schedule your day and week and plan also creative time into it to dive into your deep work
  • block free time and focus on the big things first, imagine a jar, start with the big rocks, then the middle and then fill it up with the small pieces and sand as otherwise the big things do not fit in any more
  • fill your schedule with the tasks that move the needle for you, if not, somebody else will
  • do not start your day with acting on other people´s agenda like reacting on mails …
  • my strategic coach Dan Sullivan always says, do not plan more than 3 major things a day
  • Listen in to interview episode # 003 and learn the success habits of highly successful people, when Corey Poirier describes what he found out interviewing 5000 people 
  • set up barriers for others to reach you in order to get the most important tasks done
  • esp. as a small biz owner you need to apply the principles of success and outsource, delegate and automate to prevent being stressed out and near burnout
  • in order for you to become legendary start with becoming authentic and live and work fully in your zone of genius
  • the modern myth of our age is independence, that doing everything on your own will lead to success, as a leader you are responsible for the overall outcome
  • leadership means to graduate from dependence to interdependence, network and collaborate so you can do what you´re good at and look for other leaders within your organization to delegate and you stay the overall leader


  • every great lesson comes from stories as our mind processes mostly in images, we then can envision the story 
  • do what you are passionate about, pivot things and adapt them
  • in order to solve the worldwide problems such as global warming etc. we are facing, we need to live authentically with our strengths, collaborate and unite
  • when everybody is working in her/his zone of genius, we can all become greater than any individual and we can all help to save this paradise here
  • e.g. Cody and myself, by providing our stage as podcaster and hosts of Online Summits, we educate and inspire others and bring awareness to others sharing their voice
  • settle matters today rather than leaving disconnected
  • do not base your life on perceptions, get to the reality of it and then act
