Hey Career Hackers!
Welcome to this week’s edition of The Weekly 6, where I go into 6 things I’m pumped on this week.
It’s a lovely morning as I write this hanging in Long Lake, Wisconsin, sipping my morning SUTRA, and expressing gratitude for the work I get to do day in and day out. Be sure to check out my Insta Story to see more!
This Week’s Podcast Episode
Due to some big life/career changes coming down the pipe, I’m pausing the podcast for a few months. Let’s call the first 14 episodes Season 1 and I’ll be in touch soon about when to expect Season 2.
You’ll see some bigger announcements in the next few weeks, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I’m going to keep doing the newsletters every week. So count on that! If you like them, please share and forward around.
Career Hack of the week
Scaling and creating Leverage. In order to advance in your professional career, and rise through the ranks at your company, you must find a way to scale yourself. This means offloading tasks to more junior employees, automating things, or outsourcing them as soon as they become easy.
The best way to do this is by creating the process, detailing the process, and then handing the process off. This is also how you will continue to learn and grow as a person.
Quote I’m Pondering
“Strong opinions, held weakly”
I like this quote because it means that you’ve done the work and research and diligence to really believe what you know is true. That your opinion of something is strong because it’s backed by data, research, or validation of some sort. But, that opinion is held weakly, so it means you’re flexible to change it if better information comes along.
I think a lot of people have strong opinions but aren’t flexible at all. They believe what they believe and you won’t be able to tell them otherwise. You can’t grow like this.
*Can’t recall where I heard this quote the first time.
Trip I’m Looking into
Bozeman, Montana. Anyone ever been? Seen me recos!
It looks beautiful and I’ve really been indexing for nature these days. I’d like to make it a road trip and do a bunch of Montana, Wyoming, and maybe even get up to Banff, but not sure I’ll have the time for all of that this year. But will definitely get to Bozeman.
Something New I’m Trying
Celery juice first thing in the morning. It resets the digestive system.
“Celery contains compounds called coumarins, which are known to enhance the activity of white blood cells and support the vascular system. It also helps to purify the bloodstream, aid in digestion, relax the nerves, reduce blood pressure, and clear up skin problems.”You can see more here.
Books, Courses, Podcasts, or Educational Resources of the week
The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino. My dad gave me this book when I entered the workforce and I kept it on me for years. Whether you’re in sales or not, everyone in business should read it. It’ll take you an hour and is super quick and easy.
It’s a story set in ancient history about the journey of a poor camel boy Hafid, who follows a path that leads him to a life of abundance through a story that illustrates easy to follow life lessons. Great read and a ton of value for a short book.
And as always, please let me know your requests and suggestions on Instagram. What do you want more or less of? Let me know. Just send a Insta message to @hackitmax and put #TheWeekly6 in there so I can find it. See here for past Weekly 6 Editions.
