Optimise To Prioritise

By  Ange Fonce

Do you test yourself... do you test your beliefs... your thoughts... do you "invest" your "time" to IMPROVE your life?

I am a great tester... from testing what I eat to running multi variables in my business,... and personally in my own life... I test as much as I can.

This is for good reason.... I have found through years of testing that often little adjustments... or life hacks... can mean HUGE benefits to me... also I get "know" that at least half my theories are wrong... and the only way to tell which ones are right is through testing. 

Some of the most "creative" and "intelligent" people I know also use  "testing"... and "experimentation" in their everyday lives to "learn" more... live a "healthier" lifestyle... manage hugely "successful careers"... and build "wealth" for themselves.

Testing does not have to be complicated... usually it is just a simple notepad of a couple ideas you are working on improving... and the results can be huge.

Now I work long hours in building a business... and I wanted to get a good balance of sleep... so here is how I mastered the "15 minute nap"... and become even more "productive" in a shorter time... I love daytime naps... and it is tough to find 2 hours for a luxurious nap...  plus I would always wake up sluggish... I wanted to know how to take a nap for more energy in a short window... I wanted to master the 15 minute energy nap.

I started off by trying to get a baseline:... I gave myself an hour... and napped just fine... when I woke up …. and yes I had used an alarm clock... I felt good... and when I tried to go right down to 15 minutes... I did not fall asleep at all... now I knew that I had to work on falling asleep quicker.... I started tracking a bunch of variables... it looked like this:


Early afternoon
Late afternoon





After experimenting with all of these... I got down to falling asleep in about 10...12 minutes... I learned that eating right before a nap in the early afternoon worked best in helping me fall asleep faster... working out had no impact at all... and after a 15 minute nap where I only really slept 3 minutes... I would just wake up frustrated.

That is when I started playing around with all kinds of things....

Should I nap on the couch? 

In my bed? 

Put the pillow over my head? 

The single best "technique" for me was carving out 30 minutes in my daily schedule... 15 to nap... and 15 to wake up... and get back into my day... I do not know exactly why,.. somehow... consciously giving myself that extra 15 minutes after the nap let me fall asleep faster... now I can nap for 15 minutes... and wake up energized. 

You will hear people say... 

“I wish I could take naps.” 

And there was nothing magical about this... just simple testing to “find out”... and KNOW what was best for me.

Now... when testing a new system... try many different "variables"... and continually tweak your approach for maximum benefit.... the result for myself is that I am twice more "productive" in a shorter "time"... getting twice more things done... which has in effect given me more free time to enjoy myself.

A WIN WIN for me.... more "productivity" in "producing"... and more FREE time.

As always... leave a man or woman all the "better" for "knowing" you.

Thank you and may you enjoy a Prosperous and Dynamic day!

Train Your Brain to Think More Accurately And Clearly 

By Ange Fonce

Neuroscientific research is showing that being “precise” and “accurate” in "how" you “speak” and “write” also “sharpens” the way you “think.”

The latest neuroscience research is showing that the human brain uses “neurons” in the “left visual cortex” to process “written words” as “whole word units”... the "brain" combines these words and their “stored meanings” to “remember” and “und...
