Springing into April
Well there’s a whole heck of a lot to update you on. So I’m going to do my very best to get it all out… spring is certainly time for change.
Three Hacks To Help Navigate Change
Wake up early, consistently and without hitting snooze. :)
It drives me bonkers to hear about people that roll around in bed, scrolling through Insta while the morning is just slipping away from them. Early bird catches the worm and it’s time to take action on your life. The morning is your first opportunity to establish your authority. Wake up, hydrate, get moving with intent (yoga, run, 100 squats + 200 jump rope) fuel yourself for the day, read or create and then organize three tasks you “Get To Do” that day!

Say “Thank You”
I ripped this one from David Meltzer. Try it before you go to bed, and when you wake up. Gratitude is the easiest way to radically change your life, yet we tend to be so far in our own way that we can’t even say thanks for what we have. An app I have used in the past is called Daylio. Check it here: www.daylio.com
“Take 5 minutes to give 500”. There’s lots of ways to meditate. Deep, real connection with oneself, allowing thoughts to permeate, sitting uncomfortably with stillness and being mindful and present has proven to level up your frequency to allow for you to attract the things that you want in life. If you invest more time into yourself, before always taking on the tasks of change or others’ BS you will ultimately be a rock star at this game of life in no time!

I’m happy to announce that I’m returning west. For a few minutes anyways. I’ll be leaving my residence in the GTA, where I’ve spent the past 8 months fostering what is now known as the Rock Doctor brand, making new friendships and wrestling with the stereotypes that all southern Ontarians drink copious amounts of Tim Hortons and smoke darts... (it’s more true than I care to admit) I have learned a ton, met some really amazing people and made lifelong relationships. As with any departure, it’ll be sad to leave the relationships I’ve made here and I hope I’ve made a positive impact on anyone I’ve come across since I ventured out on this adventure in July. I like to think of this as a “see ya later…” rather than a “good-bye”.
Now, the big news. Well, first off my band Robins Avenue released our debut single last month called “Home” and it’s doing pretty well. We are going to record new music with an award winning production team at OCL Studios in April. Check it out below!
Then, I am bouncing off to Hawaii, en route to Australia and later New Zealand. I’ve get to work on my new podcast, string together three more books to complete the Groovement Rx Series and get my speaking career really rolling. That’s my April-June. Outside of that, I was offered a tryout with the Melbourne Ice, one of the semi-pro hockey teams down under. I’m definitely training hard and making time for this opportunity. How cool, right?!
All of that considered, as you can imagine I have found it challenging to create the necessary space to stay creative and focused with the distractions of life buzzing. With the amount of technology at our fingertips nowadays, we tend to put off the larger, more emotionally demanding tasks until it’s far too late. Have you ever procrastinated and not met a deadline?
It’s scary to think that for 2019 I have three more books due to be published, a half dozen presentations that are either booked or in process and we’re not even out of March. Crazy. I love the productivity. And I’m asking for your help to make sure it all happens.
I’ve got a Patreon page set up where for as little as $2/ month you can help fuel the fire and keep my message alive and well. I’m looking for input as to what to include before I push it to the public. If you wouldn’t mind taking the time to check it out and leave some feedback I’d really appreciate it. www.patreon.com/thedocrocktor
That’s it for now! I know, lots going on. Thank you for your continued support. Please check out Patreon and message me if you have any tips. I’m new to this whole world and would love to make this as good for you folks as I can.
