We can thank Ron Popeil for our “set it and forget it” mentality.

Rotisserie chicken? 401K management? Email autoresponders? Landing pages, Facebook pixels, and live streaming video services? Yup. We want to set and forget all of them.

In fact, many of the business owners I talk to are so wrapped up in constantly searching for the next exciting auto-thing that they neglect to do some of the proven manual-things.

Step away from the latest buzz apps and marketing methods to make sure you’re taking care of the basics that matter:

  • Sleep well.
  • Eat well.
  • Exercise.
  • Find the creative and productive schedule that really works for you.
  • Do something fun and personally rewarding each day.
  • Spend time with people you love.
  • Meditate.

All of the latest trends and tools won’t do a thing for you if you’re not maximizing your own well being first and foremost.
