Today is another episode of Sudden Success. These are shorter episodes that you can listen to in about 10 minutes or less. In this episode, I discuss how to stay focused at work and at home so that you can get more done and have better work life balance. I’ve identified 18 ways to stay focused and share my top 3 on this episode. Grab the other 15 by going to

Remember how clear your goals were when you were competing? Well, for years after I was done competing, I struggled to get clear on my goals again and even how to stay focused on them- day in, day out- with all the distractions that come with life.

It was discouraging and I felt myself slipping into mediocrity. I knew I could outwork anyone but I didn't know what I was supposed to be outworking them on!

Then, after interviewing some of the highest performers on the planet--- Olympians, CEO's, billionaires--- I discovered how they do it. I discovered 18 powerful and sometimes weird tactics that they use to stay focused at work and at home-- focused on the right things-- so that they could live a balanced life and achieve the success they want. Shoot, if you started using just one of them today you'll get more done in the next 8 hours. Not tomorrow or next week. These will work TODAY. Immediately. I guarantee it... it's like magic but these are real solutions to what people like you and me want. Clarity on the right goals. Staying focused on them. This is a blueprint on how to achieve like you know you should be achieving because the success that you want comes down to being able to take focused action. Experts say that most people only get about 90 minutes of actual work done in a typical eight hour day. Isn’t that crazy? But if you think about it, how much do you get done in an hour of hyper-focused work before a deadline? Probably three to four times as much, right? So, let’s say you’re already twice as efficient as most people. Implementing these will help you get at least two more productive hours in your day. That’s ten hours a week… fourteen if you count weekends. What could you accomplish if you had an additional fourteen hours this week? Even if you only get half that, seven hours, what would you do with an extra seven hours? I use at least 4 of these every day and have used all of them at some point... now I'm able to stay focused while at work so that I can get 50-100% more done each day, I'm more present when I'm home with my wife and four kids so that I can have a stronger relationship with my family and I'm able to achieve goals I never even dreamed possible- like being chosen to give a TED Talk (at one of the biggest TED events in the world), launching a podcast and running a half marathon---- all while having a full time job that includes regular travel and working nights and weekends. You're going to find solutions on this list you never even dreamed of and you’re going to discover that by using these tactics that you’ll have the time to get the things done that you want.

About Your Host Jim Harshaw

My name is Jim Harshaw. And I know where you’re at. You’re working hard and qualified for what you do but you aren’t getting what you want. You have plans on getting to the C-suite or launching a business but ultimate success seems as far away today as ever. You’re at the right place because you can get there from here.

And I can help.

Who I Am

I’m a speaker, coach and former Division I All American wrestler that helps motivated former athletes reach their full potential by getting clarity on their what they really want and taking aggressive action to lead their ideal life not just despite their prior failures but because of them.

I’m a husband and father of four. And I’m a serial entrepreneur. I’ve launched multiple successful businesses as well as the obligatory failed one. I’ve been the executive director of a non-profit and have raised millions of dollars. I’ve worked in sales. I’ve even been a Division I head coach. While I was born in a blue-collar home I have spent my life surrounded by Olympians, CEO’s and millionaires.

Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

I’ve been lucky.

I’ve learned the habits of successful people and guess what. You’re just like them. I know because I know your type. You’re programmed for hard work, which is a prerequisite for success, but you’ve never been shown how to use what you know to create the life you want with the tools you have.

I will show you how.

Why You are Here

You've worked hard to achieve success. You’ve set goals and maybe even set records. You’ve definitely failed and you’ve at some point found yourself questioning if you were on the right track.

You need to understand this: You are far more prepared to succeed than those who’ve not tried, competed, struggled and overcome like you have. That’s the value of your education as someone who aims high. You are prepared to be as successful as your wildest dreams will allow.

Here I will teach you, with the help of brilliant minds that have been shaped by failure, struggle and adversity, to be who you want to be. I sense that you want this because you have read this far.
