Interview with Lewis Howes
What is your best productivity tip that you use in business?
Delegate anything that you don’t HAVE to be the one doing it to someone else on your team (or a freelancer). Frequently look at what you are spending your time on and if anything else can be delegated.
Do you have a ritual that gets you fired up for work?
I try my best to workout every morning and do a short meditation. I’m not perfect at it, but it makes a huge difference in my energy and focus for the day.
Any routines or activities you do to unwind after a hard day’s work?
I really like going to the movies, even if by myself, to unplug from everything and get new ideas. I also like getting outside – going for a run or walk or playing basketball.
