The First Sip
Every week, Sophie-Louise Corrigan lets her 5-year-old daughter, Amina, choose a stranger to perform a random act of kindness for.
The goal? To simply put a smile on their face.
It’s a tradition that started when Sophie-Louise’s was a child.
“Myself and mum used to always do it, whenever we had some money left from the weekly shop or if we really wanted to do it that week, we deducted something from the shop to make sure we had the money, we would always do it,” she recalls.
Now a mother herself, she continues the tradition by letting her daughter go to whoever she’s drawn to and “pick” someone.
“After I’ll ask why she picked them and it is always because she likes something about them either their top or their hair. I always let her pick,” Sophie-Louise says.
The two of them play this little “game” everywhere – even on a recent trip to Turkey.
They’ll buy a stranger flowers, chocolates, or a meal.
The reactions they get make it all worth it.
People will come up and give Amina a high-five or a hug – something she loves.
“There are others who have teared up and said that they’ve had such a horrible week either with bills or a family death and Amina will always say to me that although the person was crying, it was happy tears,” says Sophie-Louise.
“She’s understanding how acts of kindness work and how emotions work.”
1 Caffeinated Neurohack
While most advisors *think* they’re exceptionally talented multitaskers, research shows that just 2.5% are actually able to do it effectively.
That means…and I hate to burst your bubble…your penchant for multitasking is probably harming your productivity.
By one estimate, it hamstrings productivity by as much as 40%.
That’s because the human brain lacks the ability to perform two tasks at once.
So while we think we’re performing multiple tasks at once, we’re really just switching back and forth.
But what if I told you that you could beat biology and effectively multi-task for just $4 to $7 per hour?
The secret: Hire a virtual assistant.
Here’s my suggestion:
- Make a list of the top 3 time consuming tasks that you do each week that technically don’t require your involvement.
- Create a standard operating procedure (SOP) that explains how to do the task.
- Hire an international VA. (Shouldn’t cost more than $4 – $7 per hour.)
- Use your time to focus on the tasks that require your attention.
☕ TL;DR: Use this 4-step action plan to boost productivity by up to 40%
