FULL TRANSCRIPT


Elysium “Glam” Nguyen: Beautiful.


Sharon Pearson: Thank you. Let's drink.


G: I think we're on! Hello.


SP: Yes.


G: Thank you so much for being here.


SP: My pleasure.


G: Welcome to episode three of perspectives.


SP: Yes this is wonderful. It's so wonderful.


G: We’ve been getting so many comments and that's


SP: Have we? Good.


G: Yeah the last couple of episodes right. And I was imagining what the world and more than it was in the conversation.


SP: Yes. Brilliant.


G: And we had great response so far. And one of the things that I love to get you on today and that is the conversation around there's so many people who are starting out business now and you can see the success that we created and the culture and


SP: The overnight success


G: Yeah.


SP: That is higher.


G: Yeah.


SP: It was nothing, was hanging around and ended up on the beach. On that You know, Tim Ferris never meant the four hour work week to be taken literally.


G: Yeah.


SP: Did you know that?


G: I didn’t actually yeah.


SP: He’s spoken now on a couple of podcasts made it really clear it was never it was just the kind of the title that you did it's your local dish and is beginning to talk to let everybody risen most of it I’m telling you know, Tim has never done for heaven's sake. And he doesn't have his laptop at the beach just to be clear. So this whole kill the myth now early.


G: Yes.


SP: I’m such a motivational speaker but I can't keep, I can’t perpetuate that BS, so Tim he never has done the 4 hour work week unless on holiday.


G: No I don’t know anyone successful to do a 4 hour work week


SP: It was more a tag each, or a symbol of getting organised and delegating where you can


G: Yeah. And that's impossible.


SP: Well four hours as was a little bit so clear to that extent that he doesn't believe that he meant this is symbolic of how to think smart of your business.


G: Yeah.


SP: How did these virtual systems and how to access and stuff that it was never going to get?


G: Yes


SP: you know what. If you want to work for hours it’s probably not your thing.


G: Completely.


SP: What was the last time I did four hours on 18 hours away from my elevator is every

decade? I've does have always my thing.


G: Yes. And you want to put the time in. It lights you up.


SP: Yes people say they want to make all of money for this do for hours you want to get the rest of the way.


G: Yes, that is such a good point.


SP: It's not your thing. Then what do you do? It's like sort of a visual. Most people I know they just get bored of the beach after two weeks have really had a few days.


G: Yes.


SP: So we're two weeks five. We've done a lot of lifestyle. We've done eight hours work. Competitors have done that in a day.


G: Yeah.


SP: I'm sorry. No the world isn't wired that way and the world was one that way of a very unfair world because it I believe because you'd be basically saying no matter the effort it's not your results you're smart. If it was a big teams combined by again


G: And it has to be both put together anything especially at the beginning when you're when you start when you bring it to Rush you're getting things going. It's a different. I think one of the concepts that people mistake is they see the success that they have now for example and some people can sometimes misunderstand the journey that earns that success. You earn your days you can sit and write the book that you love and your days when you have you know you can put aside we can sit down have a cup of tea and do a podcast together. And at the beginning it's going to be everything we love over time.


SP: It's still not everything I love all the time, and that is such a great point to see. We have to be in love with this thing about Flow that’s huge. And I can’t say the name of the person that invented it, Joe?

Joe Pane: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi


SP: Yes yes. He's been studying Flow for decades and it's about having lost to the amount of challenge and the amount of enjoyment. We have enough enjoyment that you engage and you disappear in it. And a lot of commentators now say the idea is to be having flow experiences in your business. Stop again. Oh gosh I'm so motivational it can't all be flow. It is in the beginning. It's not all exciting because it's just hard and it can't be that right amount of challenge was not too boring about you because it's all hard. All of it is hard. Turning up to my first client session was hard. There was no flow. Flow is something we earn and the studies that he. This guy did. Whose name. That's it for this podcast. The studies show that they studied mainly elite athletes and artists and musicians and students completely engrossed in what they were doing. And now they've just they started moving recently studying workplace. But to get to a floor is that the first day in your job there's no floor on the first day. Yes that is earned. Even the people who love flooring. I'm in floor and I know you're in floor all the time man. We've had this completely and so it's all going to be flow. Oh come on. Yes. Suck it up princess. Do the yards do what it actually takes? Yeah. So you earned the right to have floor because you retreat you've achieved the late


G: Completely. And. So many many days as you get to that it's still not flow all the time. You know it is it's not. And those days have to be has with anything as far a reason why you you find this thing that you love. Yeah you find thing that you wanted for your audience is the time. Is it worth it? Yes. Flow is worth it yes.


SP: Yeah. Yes. And maybe they do turn into flow like sales is something was not flow for me. It was incredibly uncomfortable space to be in and I didn't engage with it in a healthy way and I brought a lot of my personal issues around that and whatever. I made it a very noisy dramatic space in my business until I got a handle on it. And now as you know sells is flow For me it's it's almost an effortlessness that doesn't make it flow. Yeah. Because I don't really find it hugely challenging but it's enough that I've got to be mindful of the pieces. Yeah but it wasn't like that in the beginning, I mean I avoided sells I win probably I don't know how true this is but a lot of my attraction to being a writer prior to going to business was the appeal of not going out and having to have that feeling of selling myself or selling a product not realizing of course all book sales come from sales
