It's life hack Wednesday! When it comes to figuring out hacks to make life more successful, you go to one of the world's biggest success stories, Steve Jobs, the late Co-Founder of Apple. His Executive Assistant, Naz Beheshti, has written a book that offers the world a glimpse into what made him so successful. For one, she says he ate a vegetarian diet, mainly of sushi without all the "extras" on it. He ate a lot of fruits and vegetables for fuel. I've long heard that his simple black Turtleneck and gym shoes wardrobe was a contributor to his success. When you spend less of your thinking on the less important things like "what am I going to wear," you reserve more of your creative thinking for the important things that move the needle, like all of the incredible Apple innovations.
Another life hack that Naz shares in her book is that Steve didn't take meetings in his office. He preferred to walk and talk or hold his meeting in nature. Walking and talking gets those creative juices flowing and increases productivity. She, also, says that walking is "playful" in nature, which leads to more creativity. Beheshti's book is called "Pause. Breathe. Choose: Become the CEO of Your Well-Being."
