"What is the most valuable use of my time?"

The things that matter most must never be at the mercy of the things that matter least.--Goethe

My top 5 Hip & Tranquil Productivity Tips:

1. Unleash the Power of Goal-Setting.

2. Practice the Rule of 5:
Every day do 5 specific things that move your goal toward completion.

3. 80/20 Rule: 80% of results, outputs, or rewards are derived from only 20% of the causes, inputs, or effort.

4. Get Things Done.

5. Choose the Most Important Tasks and think of your day in dashes and dots.`

You are a remarkable person, possessed of incredible untapped potentials and abilities. Whatever you have accomplished in life so far is only a shadow of what is truly possible for you. – Brian Tracy

Hip Tranquil Chick Chat: “Just wanted to say thank you for turning my long runs into (even higher-) quality time. I listen to your fabulous podcast every time I hit the road (and have actually found myself looking forward to my runs as this means another one or two episodes of hiptranquilchick!).

I came to yoga a year ago and I think this is just right for me, not only as there are some parallels between Patanjali and myself - we're both doctors, linguists and yogis (even though I still need to work a lot on this one). Yoga helps me to lead a more balanced life, listen to my body and create a quiet yet intense zone when practising, and you help me in keeping my enthusiasm about it fresh and strong(er) and take new perspectives on old and new aspects of life in general and the yoga lifestyle in particular.

So thank you so much for being such a great source of inspiration. You rock, hip tranquil chick!”
