Each morning, I take several long breaths. The deep inward, hold for a four-six count, and deep exhalation. I find that this has a similar effect as when I consume a bunch of coffee. It also knocks the groggy feeling out quick. I like you have a ton to get done each day. What is one way to get you going in the A.M.?
Productivity tip of the day. What are the three things you are looking forward to doing today? Do them ⭐️, When I journal, I list the three things that when accomplished will move towards my goals. There are other habits, that pop up (like take meds), but this helps me concentrate in a world of many potential distractions. The below is from the book I'm reading now from Tiago Forte.
Taking a few moments each day to capture what is important has been an important component of my life. It takes me all of fifteen minutes top. Sometimes it is structured (I use a template in Evernote). Other times it's just me writing what I'm grateful for and what I'm looking to in the day. I find that it gets me going and more productive. What do you do each day to get you going?
"Quiana's Voice" will be amazing. I'm so excited about the planning for our first signature event. It breaks my heart to see people not use their God given ability to be creative. This will be a celebration of our spirit and we hope to give one deserving person some technology to get their journey going. Click here.
These days getting back to where I've been spiritually, I needed to create something that energizes me and hopefully the world. Hip Hop changed my life and creating a story about it, is the medicine I needed. I'm confident that when you come to check out the reading of the first act, it will give you some as well. Hip Hop not helped to mold me, but the whole planet. "Lyrics" gives us hope about the greatest genre of art in the last four plus decades.
Come check me and the amazing actors on August 20th.

Many times our productivity system is focused on what we wish to accomplish. In this premiere episode of Productivity Cocktail, I share with with my thoughts and recommendations about people. Those family and friends that are important to us sometimes comes after we do what we deem important. My hope is to challenge you on this a bit. I love productivity as it brings me immeasurable joy to see things that are important to me get done. This gives me the time to be present with my family. Thank you and keep painting that masterpiece in the mirror.
I'm so honored to be named the President of the TOASTMASTERS club for my day life. I started as a guest less than two years ago and I’m excited to serve my colleagues as we develop collectively this important skill. Each of us at some point will have to communicate to a group an idea, a process, or a belief. For me, it’s exhilarating each and every time. Speaking makes my brain work faster and I truly love it. I was chatting with a good friend today about having a "purpose stack" when you can integrate things you love . In this case for me it’s speaking and educating. It creates for me explosive energy. Every day I wake up with a pain somewhere, but the key is I woke up. I believe God wakes me up each day so I can find a way to love my fellow man. The Schisms that exist between us are real, however when we use that platinum rule, each day we have an impact even if we can’t see it. I’ve another article in SHOUTOUT Atlanta magazine in which I’m thankful.
Every day if I get the major item from the day accomplished, it is a success. I tell you, living a life in which you think about what is important to complete was initially stressful when I started on this journey over twenty years ago. Over time, I realized how much I can grow my ability and it becomes addicting. It becomes a lifestyle. If I can help you, please reach out to me. If you get the one thing that will move your life forward it is totally worth it. That's a successful day.
Our world shares that we must be focused on ourselves first. For many of us, that is extremely difficult. It may fly in the face of our productivity goals and our daily time management aspirations. In this video, I give you my thoughts on some ways to think about requests. If we are living a life in which we help and support others, they are going to ask for help. Hopefully you find this helpful.
