Yes they worked their crafts, invested in their acumen, found the right mentors and exercised the grit to get their audacious visions done.

But one thing every single icon who has ever graced our precious planet has had in common is the ability to install systems that release their greatest productivity.

Having worked with many billionaires as a leadership + elite performance advisor, Robin Sharma has watched how they do what they do. And he has taught them a series of “peak performance protocols” that have caused them to x100 their results, impact and contribution.

hi it’s Robin Sharma author of the
00:06
leader who had no title founder of the
00:08
Titan Academy and welcome to this
00:10
mastery session this mastery session is
00:12
all about a method to times 100 to
00:16
increase by a factor of 100 your
00:19
productivity and we live in a world
00:21
right now where productivity and in
00:23
particular what I call exponential
00:26
productivity has never been so important
00:28
here’s a brain tattoo for you to
00:30
consider an addiction to distraction
00:33
will be the death of your creative
00:35
production here’s another brain tattoo
00:38
for you to consider we live in a world
00:40
where focus is more valuable than even
00:43
your intelligence I mean if you watch
00:45
most performers today you watch most
00:48
people in business today you watch most
00:50
people in your community today and they
00:52
are walking while checking their social
00:55
feeds you know they are addicted to the
00:58
entertainment of video games they are
01:01
spending the best hours of their days
01:03
watching dancing cats on YouTube I mean
01:07
it is incredible right now how consumed
01:09
people are with their tiny white screens
01:13
and yet if you look at the a player’s if
01:15
you look at many of the most creative
01:18
and productive people on the planet
01:20
they’re doing and working in such vastly
01:24
different ways because if you want to
01:26
achieve the results only 5% achieve
01:29
you’ve got to think and produce and
01:31
behave like only 5% of the people on the
01:33
planet and the best people on the planet
01:35
in terms of creativity and productivity
01:37
are not spending their finest hours
01:41
addicted to distraction they are doing
01:44
work that matters they’re not doing fake
01:47
work they’re doing real work and so in
01:50
this mastery session I want to walk you
01:51
through a number of protocols that will
01:54
really help you multiply your
01:56
productivity in the finest of ways and
01:58
I’m going to get right into the first
01:59
one which is the ninety ninety one rule
02:03
now I’ve become pretty well known for
02:05
this I’ve taught it to a lot of people
02:07
who attend my annual event the titan
02:09
summit and they have used the
02:11
one tool alone to create vast amounts of
02:15
productivity that have scaled their
02:17
businesses scaled their impact on the
02:19
world and created world-class lifestyles
02:22
so I really invite you to pay even more
02:25
attention to the 99 one rule and what’s
02:28
that all about it’s pretty simple like
02:30
any great rule for the next 90 days
02:32
spend the first 90 minutes of your
02:35
workday on your single most important
02:38
opportunity to move the needle in your
02:41
industry and I’ll repeat that again with
02:43
great respect because it’s so important
02:45
I believe to your productivity the
02:47
ninety ninety one rule is simply for the
02:49
next 90 days spend the first 90 minutes
02:53
of your workday on your single most
02:56
game-changing opportunity because what
02:58
happens a lot of us get to work and we
03:01
spend our best hours on our least
03:03
important activities we get to work and
03:06
we start checking our social feed we get
03:09
to work and we check our texts we get to
03:11
work and we chitchat at the water cooler
03:14
about the latest TV show that we watched
03:16
last night and research has shown that
03:19
the morning hours are when you have the
03:22
most focus when you have the most energy
03:24
and when you have the most willpower and
03:27
so you want to use that first 90 minutes
03:29
you know that is that is game time
03:32
that’s show time the second piece of
03:34
technology to create exponential
03:37
productivity is what I call tight
03:39
bubbles of total focus your environment
03:42
is so important and if you look at be
03:45
performers or see producers they really
03:47
don’t pay a lot of tension to their
03:49
environment and so they get very
03:51
distracted there’s lots of noises their
03:53
phones are going off maybe there’s news
03:56
in the background maybe there’s messy
03:58
environments all around them maybe
04:00
there’s toxic people what I’m suggesting
04:03
to you is the second piece of technology
04:05
to really 100 times your productivity is
04:09
this install environments of tight
04:13
bubbles of total focus the way I run my
04:16
work life on certain days I am very hard
04:20
to reach and I challenge you with great
04:22
love and respect be very hard
04:24
reach during key times of your week I
04:27
mean I see a lot of people and it’s not
04:30
judging them it’s just observing them
04:32
every time their phone rings they check
04:34
it or they have you know these loud
04:36
notifications so they’re constantly
04:38
being distracted and we know what the
04:40
research says the research says we spend
04:43
2.1 hours a day in distraction we spent
04:47
and it takes 21 minutes to refocus your
04:50
focus after you’ve been distracted so if
04:53
you are being distracted by
04:55
notifications checking your phone
04:56
checking your Twitter feed checking your
04:58
Facebook feed looking on Instagram
05:00
checking all the different platforms
05:02
that is going to destroy your focus so
05:04
the second piece of Technology’s create
05:07
these tight bubbles of total focus and
05:09
the way I do it is I have certain days
05:12
that I label as creative days and on
05:15
those creative days I actually go device
05:17
free and on those days I’m very hard to
05:21
find and on those days I’m in total
05:23
solitude and on those days I go to
05:25
certain places
05:26
I call them my Menlo labs just like
05:29
Edison had his Menlo lab and these
05:31
places are very minimalist and there’s
05:33
no one there and that’s where I do my
05:37
best work so install these tight bubbles
05:39
of total focus and create these Menlo
05:42
labs where you’re sorry you’re
05:44
completely distraction free and then you
05:46
will find your brain will drop from the
05:49
beta state into the alpha state where
05:53
you will do your best work and get your
05:55
best ideas the next piece of technology
05:57
that will help you create exponential
05:59
productivity in your work life so you
06:01
truly impact the world around you is
06:03
choose your peer group really really
06:06
well there’s a lot of excellent science
06:08
coming out and a lot of excellent
06:10
research coming out that says the number
06:13
one way to improve your behavior is to
06:16
surround yourself with a peer group or
06:19
social circle of people who are also
06:21
playing at the level you want to be
06:23
playing at so if you want to be a high
06:24
performer in terms of your product
06:26
productivity populate your life with
06:29
high performers now here’s the science
06:31
behind it in the brain we have something
06:33
called the mirror neuron system of the
06:36
brain and it dates back to thousands
06:38
years ago when we were living on the
06:40
savanna and this mirror neuron system
06:42
allowed us to model the behavior of the
06:46
dominant people in the tribe so if
06:48
someone figured out a tool or figured
06:50
out fire or a better way to survive
06:53
subconsciously this system in the brain
06:56
allowed us to model the behavior and I
06:58
think this is pretty fascinating
07:00
information now here we are in the
07:02
modern world and what happens
07:04
subconsciously we are modeling the
07:06
behavior of the people we spend most of
07:09
our time with and so if you are around
07:11
victims you will start behaving like a
07:13
victim if you’re around people who are
07:15
mediocre performers you will
07:17
subconsciously start behaving like them
07:20
if you around people who gossip who are
07:22
not a players who do not produce very
07:24
much you will subconsciously because if
07:27
the mirror neuron system in the brain
07:29
start performing like them why else is
07:32
it important to surround yourself with a
07:34
pure set or social orbit of a player’s
07:38
emotional contagion and that’s a
07:41
scientific phenomenon that simply says
07:43
we pick up on the emotions of the people
07:45
that are around us and so if you are
07:48
around a social circle of people who are
07:50
inspired people who want to do great
07:52
work people who want to be ultra
07:54
productive people who want to be
07:55
innovative people who are relentlessly
07:58
optimizing their work their thinking
08:00
their creativity just being around them
08:02
will allow you to adopt their energy and
08:05
their ways of being and then the final
08:07
technology for you to create exponential
08:09
productivity is what I call learned
08:11
minimalism so you know minimalism is
08:14
often considered as a design philosophy
08:17
right it’s like very stark very sparse
08:21
sometimes industrial lots of white not a
08:24
lot of things it’s you know like you go
08:26
into a boutique hotel and you know it’s
08:28
designed by Philippe Starck the great
08:30
French designer and it’s very minimalist
08:33
what I’m encouraging you to do with
08:34
great love and respect is to be ultra
08:37
productive adopt the mindset of learned
08:41
minimalism now I’ve worked with a lot of
08:44
the most creative and productive people
08:45
on the planet I’ve worked with
08:47
billionaires and CEOs I’ve worked with
08:49
true Titans
08:50
here’s one thing I’ve observed in them
08:52
they understand that the secret to
08:57
genius is not complexity its simplicity
09:01
if you look at a Picasso of any industry
09:05
if you look at a great artist they
09:08
didn’t fill their work days and their
09:10
personal lives with a lot of things they
09:13
filled them with a few things I guess
09:14
what I’m suggesting to you is one of the
09:16
secrets to iconic productivity is B mono
09:21
maniacally focused at being world-class
09:24
ed just a few things and if you look at
09:28
any great artist any great entrepreneur
09:30
any great business builder any great
09:32
author any great humanitarian they were
09:35
mono maniacally focused on one thing
09:37
they were minimalist and so what I want
09:39
to leave you with is this maybe this
09:42
year rather than having 50 projects that
09:45
you want to achieve at the highest level
09:49
maybe pick three this year rather than
09:54
having a thousand Facebook friends maybe
09:57
go deepen develop three really great
10:00
relationships this year or maybe the
10:04
next few months rather than trying to
10:06
read 20 audiobooks 50 e-books go to five
10:10
courses why not focus on one course and
10:14
one audio book and why not study one
10:18
great autobiography maybe it’s
10:20
Isaacson’s autobiography of Steve Jobs
10:22
maybe it’s Nelson Mandela’s
10:24
autobiography I’m going through the
10:27
autobiography of Martin Luther King jr.
10:29
right now which actually wasn’t written
10:31
by him but it’s called the autobiography
10:33
of Martin Luther King jr. I am
10:35
encouraging you to really adopt this
10:39
thinking protocol of becoming a
10:42
minimalist even your home filled with
10:44
just a few things right even your work
10:46
life just a few projects even your
10:49
clients just the highest leverage
10:51
clients and especially your days focus
10:55
focus focus on just those few priorities
10:59
that when you roll up your sleeves and
11:02
go deep in them and
11:03
vest what I call the Trinity of your
11:06
assets your focus your energy and your
11:10
willpower on those few things they will
11:12
allow you to birth art into the world
11:15
which will allow the world got to call
