In this podcast episode, Joe Sanok speaks with Steven Griffith about doing a time cleanse and how to be productive without sacrificing your happiness.

Relationship with Time

As a culture, we are operating with outdated tools and tactics for time. We have been conditioned to believe that time is outside of us, which is not true.

Steven realized that was people were not present, and the use of technology changed the relationship with time.


Is this activity contributing or contaminating to my happiness and success.

Be present in the moment, increase the quality, experience, and performance with time. This starts with slowing it down and getting really clear on what’s important to you.

The Time Cleanse

Working hard is great, working smart is even greater.

  • What’s really important to you and why?
  • Time evaluation
  • Look at where the best return on time is
  • How to set up your day to perform – be clear on your top 3 priorities, then set the intentions behind them, have a period of self-reflection.
  • Start clustering tasks
  • Work rest intervals
  • Predetermined reset strategy
  • Prep for the next day

Hangover and Compound Effect

Every minute you do something that isn’t in your best interest for time, you have a hangover effect. This is the same as being around someone who is constantly negative.

The opposite of the hangover effect is the compound effect. This is when you’re investing in those areas that matter the most.
