Here’s the second part of my video interview with John Hunt of Smead’s Keeping You Organized online show. The topic is “Cinderella Actually Had Three Ugly Step Sisters: The 3 Blocks to Success.” You can listen to it as a podcast or watch it as a video. It is only 15 minutes long but packed with high-quality content.

This is Part 2, which covers an overview of the 3 blocks and delves deeper into blocks 2 and 3, The Comparison Trap and The Imposter Syndrome. Part 1 covered the first block, Perfectionism. If you missed it, be sure to go back and watch/listen to that one first.

Hopefully, this topic will help you identify the blocks to success, and how to avoid or overcome them.

I had the chance to hang out with Smead and two of my fabulous organizing/productivity colleagues a few weeks ago. We did a video chat using Google Hangout and answered questions submitted all about organizing and productivity around the general theme of Spring Cleaning. It was a lot of fun! And we shared lots of great information to help you be more productive this spring in your home, office and life. Get the 411 here!

 

I’m very excited to share my interview with you as I was a guest expert for Smead’s “Keeping You Organized” series.

Check out my podcast and video, “Principles of Productivity” for powerful organizing and productivity tips that will shift your thinking and behavior. I talk about the relationship between physical and mental organization.

Take a quick 20 minutes to watch or listen to this relaxed, lively discussion filled with cool, helpful topics on not only organizing, but common hurdles when starting or running a business.

I love partnering with Smead and enjoyed the discussion about Smead products with John (my interviewer).
