This episode is sponsored by Zencastr, my #1 podcast tool. They provide a crystal clear sound and gorgeous HD video. I love that it records separate audio and video tracks for the guests and me. Plus, there is a secured cloud backup, so you never lose your interviews. It is super easy to use, and there is nothing to download.

Even though most often neglected, unplugging from this crazy, hectic world is a must. And not only when you go on vacation, but also in your daily routine. So today, Luis and Nicolai lay out the benefits they get from doing it — and how you can do it too.

After all, being busy doesn’t equal being productive. And in this day and age, with that little thing in your pocket (aka, your phone) vibrating and ringing all the time, not only do you get less done, but also enjoy the moments of your life way less by keeping looking at screens.

In this episode, you’ll learn how to tackle both problems. All it takes is setting some rules for you to get the most of your time. Whether that’s at work, getting important things done, or with family and friends, enjoying the life you’ve been given.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How often should you completely unplug? The answer is not what you think
  • The huge productivity, creativity, and sleep benefits of unplugging
  • Planning vacations and long weekends early on in the year — and taking them
  • The good and bad of using your phone
  • 4 extremely simple phone rules that can significantly boost your productivity
  • How to use your phone automation features to stop you from using it all the time
  • Why your phone home screen should be blank
  • And much more!
