Ep. 458: How to Change Your Life in 7 Minutes (with Allyson Lewis)

Get Closer to Your Goals Every Day

You’ve dedicated yourself to building your career, but have you given the same level of devotion to your personal goals?

Today’s Stay Paid guest, Allyson Lewis, found herself faced with those same questions. She felt adrift in life, despite all her hard work and previous success in her financial services career. After much reflection, she found a powerful and time-productive way to reach an entirely new level professionally—and obtain the personal fulfillment she was seeking.

Today, Allyson is a time-management pro, author of The 7 Minute Solution: Creating a Life with Meaning 7 Minutes at a Time, and founder of the professional development company 7 Minute Life. In this episode, she shares how she learned to use a few short but effective minutes every day to achieve her goals both in the short term and the long term.

The 7-Minute Life

Allyson first suggests giving yourself seven minutes each morning to set your goals for the day. You can do this by brainstorming what you want to accomplish and then paring it down to five tasks you know you can complete by 11 a.m. If you complete those five accomplishments day after day, you’ll likely find yourself getting closer to achieving what you want in life.

However, the important work doesn’t stop there—Allyson says you should also reserve seven minutes at night for reflection. While you do this, try to focus on what you’re grateful for and what you’ve learned that day. (Be sure to include your successes and failures!) Identifying what you did well and what you need to work on can help you recalibrate your path and increase your chances of finding success.

Let us sum it up for you this way: just 14 minutes daily—or a mere 1% of your day—might be all you need to meet your personal and professional goals.

We hope you enjoy this episode and act on the advice Luke offers at the end. We’d also appreciate it if you took a moment to leave us a 5-star review and comment on Apple Podcasts. (We read them on air!) Thanks for listening!
