Published by HarperCollins in October 2021. He is a keynote and TEDx speaker and a business consultant, and host of a podcast. Joe is also a PsychCentral contributor published in the Huffington Post, Forbes, GOOD Magazine, Reader's Digest, Entrepreneur on Fire, and Yahoo News. Joe Sanok assists private practitioners in developing novel strategies for starting, growing, and scaling a private practice. Joe is also the founder of Podcast Launch School, a nine-month program that teaches budding podcasters to get incredible guests and monetize their show. He provides one-on-one consulting, Mastermind Groups, and other services to help businesses start, grow, and scale. In this episode, Joe Sanok shares some ideas about slowing down to gain more time and productivity. Joe discusses his previous position as a college counselor at a community college. He also maintained a side counseling practice and a developing podcast. However, Joe's fortunes changed when his eldest daughter required open-heart surgery. Joe was diagnosed with thyroid cancer shortly after his daughter was successfully healed and given the "all clear." Joe required radioactive iodine treatment to address his cancer following thyroid removal. He is currently more than ten years cancer-free. In 2012, with the death of Joe's grandmother and the diagnosis of his best friend's wife with cancer, he reconsidered his professional decision. It was difficult to give a breakdown of his profession because he adored it. It was not your standard corporate job, which employees despise. To accomplish our best job for the world, Joe believes that we must slow down and recognize when we are burned out or maxed out. That is never when we have good ideas or are most creative. Often, it's as though we're in the shower and have a brilliant idea. We're on a trek, or a long drive, or praying or meditating. That is when our best ideas occur. And so, starting with the big picture, we need to slow down even more than we have in this hustling culture. For many people, meditation is a significant part of their lives. It may include prayer or reading and ensuring that they are putting good nourishment into their bodies. Joe is always drinking some green smoothie, making him feel better—sleeping between eight and nine hours per night. When we start from the beginning, it's those fundamental elements that unlock your brain and enable you to do the finest work you're supposed to do in the world. When someone has a spiritual perspective of anything more significant than themselves, that will allow you to realize just how you can make an impact in the world and that there's plenty in the world that you have no control over. Being able to think beyond yourself and say, "You know, things are unfolding in the universe that is beyond your control," regardless of whether you believe in a deity or spiritual being, or whatever your belief system is. There is something outside of you that you have no control over. Let go of the expectations, of the clutching to how the world is supposed to develop, or else you'll going to be unhappy. And it will just serve to make you sad all the time because you have your one vision of the universe, and there is no way that version will unfold in the manner in which you believe it will. Often, we live in a town where there aren't many people who think like podcasters or entrepreneurs, and building and cultivating that network of individuals who will impact our lives is critical. Thus, by not being stressed out and not being pressed for time, Joe can actively call friends and check in with people who are doing fascinating things in the world. And he's not doing this to pick that person's brain for business purposes; he's doing it to learn how they're doing. The Beyond Adversity Podcast Episode 167 is a must-listen for everyone who feels pressed for time due to the amount of work needed. This episode reminds listeners how critical it is to slow down, especially in a fast-paced world where impatience is typical, and waiting is no longer regarded as a virtue.
