We all want to be more productive.

After our morning coffees, we have great ambitions for the day. And at the end of the day, we are disappointed with not reaching our morning’s goals. The trick to productivity is diagnosing where you go wrong during your day and fixing it. From becoming more selfish to giving yourself praise to working smart vs. working hard, there are many strategies you can integrate into your daily routine.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Daymond John. He is most well-known for his appearance on the hit show Shark Tank. As a teenager, he started the hip hop-inspired clothing line FUBU, while working his job at Red Lobster for $30,000/year. In this interview, we hear his insights on entrepreneurship, productivity, and what money actually means. He is the author of Rise and Grind. Tune in to hear his insights and take your daily hustle to the next level!

“Obsession with your business is the same as obsession with your kid. You don’t look it as a daily job; you look at it as the process. You know you’re not going away, just like you know you aren’t giving your child up for adoption.” - Daymond John
