Welcome to another edition of Quick Hit Fridays!
 
In this episode, I discuss why the quality of information we consume is as important as the nutrition and environments we place ourselves in. After a powerful floating session, I was reminded how our state of mind affects what we want to consume. For example, if we’re always scattered and distracted we’re going to seek useless, fluff information that distracts us instead of empower us.
 
This may not make a huge impact for one hour, one day or one week — but imagine a decade of making wise informational choices and how this manifests in your life.
 
The purpose of the Quick Hit Episodes is to give you a 4-8 minute nugget of wisdom, inspirational, a lesson and combine it with a practical action step so you can finish your weaken absolute fire!
 
 
I understand not everyone has 45-60 minutes to listen to every full-length episode and will be hitting all kinds of new topics as well as taking feedback from you, my loyal listener on what to include during the next Quick Hit.
