In this episode, I sit down with the co-creator of Lifehack Bootcamp, Demir Bentley, as he walks us through how an illness forced him into systems, automation, and productivity which helped him go from working the 9 to 5 to working the 5 to 9. We discuss why you need all four pillars of the F.A.S.T. Time Management Model to excel in time mastery, why occasional acts of radical self-care is absolutely necessary, and why you need to lean into a scarcity mindset with your time.
We also talk about how removing distractions will help you “fall” into focus, how your attitude acts as the operating system of your day, the concept of extreme ownership, and the zombie effect you may be suffering from.
This was an awesome discussion with Demir I hope you enjoy. Now let’s jump right in and get to the straight talk!
