We´re Live. The guys start talking about a competition about Pomodoro, who´s more discipline who gets more Pomodoro done. John and Josh share strategies to work on this, using apps that block your social media or internet connection, but the guys agree that they are too smart for that, they will find a way around. Discipline is the key here.

Mani was participating in this, and couldn’t get much done because he was on vacation. Guys share a few laughs, John had a huge advantage and had way more Pomodoro, there was money involved too. Hilarious haha

On at all, the guys really get productive with this system, although there are losers, the productivity skyrocketed.

Thoughts of the Week

“Don’t bet against a person that has run a marathon with Broken ribs”

We´re Live. John is checking back with his 10 Pomodoro a day technique, and it's amazing how much of a difference it makes. It´s the equivalent of 4 weeks of work in 1 week, that´s something else. To put the cherry on top, between 5 Pomodoro break, he´s reading a book.

John talks about some real state he´s been making recently, that´s something that he can't stop doing and makes a lot of progress on it, it just makes a good revenue, on the other Josh asks him how are things with Bulldog Mindset, stable position but he´s been losing some subscribers. Emphasis on growing on youtube, the algorithm has changed so much which makes it really difficult to progress.

Social media has changed a lot throughout the years, one of the main reasons why is so difficult to grow, its because there´s so much content right now. There´s a lot and depends on the audience in the case of the length of videos, for example, some people prefer small curated content than a full contrast of one point.

Thoughts of the week

JOHN – “The best strategy in social media is to be prolific as possible”

We´re Live. Google Hangouts is finally going die and supposedly going to be replaced by Youtube Webcam, we´ll see how it goes. Other topics, Charles feel off a roof and really hurt his elbow, he has a really funny anecdote on it. He´s a little worried because he´s got a 5k really soon, his doctor will tell him.

There´s an interesting argument with the guys about how Doctors do stuff, are they really needed? They all agree that doctors (Medics) mostly work o tell you what is wrong and prescribe you medicine, but there´s an actual belief that they don’t actually fix the stuff that you wanted to be fixed. Charles says clearly that he will go to anyone who really believes that he can fix him!

Charles is getting really serious about running, Jonh has solid advice on how to push through the fatigue that accumulates off all the training. It's really a difficult job to do the only way to do it its to have the mindset for it.

John talks about the Pomodoro technique, It has been doing 10 Pomodoro a day, but the game changer here is that he´s not looking at his phone until he completes the 10 Pomodoro. The results are amazingly good.

Thoughts of the day

JOHN – “Put the phone down and do the work!”
