Now that we're heading into summer, and most of us want more time with our kids and families, I thought it would be only fitting to bring on a guest who could help us hack our time. get more done, all without the hustle. Today's guest is Vikki Louise. Let me tell you a little bit more about the key because I am thrilled she's here with us today. She's a reformed hustler. I love this term. Turned time hacker.

Vikki!
Vikki Louise 2:30
Thank you so much for having me. I'm so happy to be here.
Yong Pratt 2:33
Before we dive into this juicy topic that is time hacking, can you take us back to before you were a time hacker? What did your life look like? And how did you get on this journey of yours?
Vikki Louise 2:45
Yeah, so I've always been ambitious. And I think a lot of your listeners are like that, too. And it's just always wanted to like have impact and like be out there in the world and be doing things. And a lot of like, even remember the fiction books I would read when I was younger with these like, main female characters. And they were like hustling and working long hours and doing all the things and I was like, Oh, that's what it is. That's what I want. And so I approached my work life really like that. I mean, even when I graduated university, I went straight into three jobs at the same time to save money to go traveling. But it was like no question that I would work seven days a week and evenings to do that. And then I went into corporate and worked in finance and investing. And you know, it's like my first day, you have to sign a document saying that you give up your rights to only work 40 hours a week. And I was working and always studying and always advancing and doing all the things but like, I was moving very fast. And my career wasn't moving as fast. And I really like I literally left finance twice. But the first time I was like, I don't understand it's not happening fast enough. So I really put myself in this super fast race when no one else does myself and this life that I thought I would arrive to one day. And then when I went into entrepreneurship and into coaching, we're actually at a startup before coaching as well. I brought that same energy and it was really like, I will be in the office seven days a week 10pm at night doing events, like hands on everything. And it's just unsustainable. It's not fun. And it's not what makes us move faster. Like literally we live in a world where we can reach 1000s of people off one podcast episode. And we're still living in the mentality of like 100 years ago, where to reach 1000 people you have to do all the things like think about how many social platforms we have now. So for me it was really about letting go of being busy and attaching my relevance or worth or importance to doing things and then when that happened then I ended up like succeeding a lot more I was like, Oh, this is this is what I want to help people with.
Yong Pratt 5:04
So good. And there's so many parts of that story that I can resonate with personally, and I know my listeners can as well. We've been taught to hustle and to do great things, you have to work harder and harder and faster and achieve more. And that I love that you reach this point where we thought, what if I just give this up? And then to see the success you had after getting rid of the hustle. I think if we can all get to that space where we can just let go. And yes, I agree that it's, you know, having goals is really important. But we all need to get there. In our own time, we're not running a race, like you said against anyone else. This is this is our life, we should be able to enjoy this journey and not have to go as fast as we can missing all the goodness that happens in every single moment. I love it. So tell me about who the people are that you love to serve? Why did they come to find you?
Vikki Louise 6:00
Yeah, they are typically they're doing all the things that I can do and everything become literally doing everything and it's not working. And they've reached that point of diminishing returns where like, there's a point where doing more actually starts to not only not move you further up, it starts to cost more. And it costs in terms of feeling tired and having space for creativity and being present and your other relationships and being able to be present in your business instead of 15 tabs open and all of that things. So...I know that?
Yong Pratt 6:35
Yes, for sure.
Vikki Louise 6:37
So my people tend to find me from this place of like, I'm doing all the things and I've reached this plateau and like, how do I get passed this? And I do think it's kind of like, great that they that we do reach this plateau of like you can't burn yourself out. You can't burn yourself out as a way to success. Like, that's not how it works. And I guess for me, I really want to help people without having to go through that really negative place of like, collapsing everything. So really just I also do attracts actually some new new people new to business, because again, I think like me, when we go from like what we're taught in school and what we're taught in corporate cultures into like our own business, we take all of that mentality of like 40 Hour Work Week and being available 24 seven and responding to emails and all of these things. And we bring it in instead of realizing like you've just entered a playground. Like this is the fun part. Although I will say not all of my clients are business owners, because I think time hacking time impacts everyone.
Yong Pratt 7:51
Yeah, for sure, for sure. And I wish I had discovered you years ago because there was a time in my life when I was going so hard and so fast. And I just kept thinking I needed to do more and be more and have more things. And I really reached this point where my health decided to take, you know, a huge, a huge dive. And for for months, I didn't know what was going on. And it was a scary place to be. And so I can totally relate to this, this mentality of you know, the more and more and more go because that's how I was raised to and and I think as entrepreneurs, that's the biggest lesson we learn or just in life in general, is that we have to unlearn the things we learned in school in order to make life work for us, and not try to put ourselves into that mold that everyone says we have to fit into.
Vikki Louise 8:37
Yes, exactly. That's exactly it. Yeah.
Yong Pratt 8:41
So let's talk about this juicy topic I know what my listeners are probably waiting, like, get to the good stuff already. Let's talk about time hacking. What is time hacking? Let's start there.
Vikki Louise 8:51
Yeah, so I always like to start with like the definition of hacking itself, which is really like a way of achieving something in non-standardized methods. And Time Hacking is actually all about removing, removing time from the success equation. And one of the things we mean you spoke about before we recorded was how like time like is no longer it's kind of no longer a bottleneck, right. And I think about how much time it used to take to get in front of 10 people. And now you can do it in a millisecond. Like most people listening can do this in a millisecond. So our issue is no longer like time of transporting messages or time of transporting ourselves or all of these things. Like they don't take time whereas it used to it used to take two and a half months to transfer a letter from like the UK to the US. And here look at us communicating in real time with video. So there is as an example, what we then have to get over is actually our fear of being judged by other people. And I call this the first step of time hacking, which is really managing our mindset. And really specifically, our thoughts about ourselves, like having your own back what you think about you, if you think you're not good enough, it doesn't matter that you can go live on Facebook and reach 100 people, you are not going to do it, for example.
Vikki Louise 10:16
And so the three steps to time hacking are managing your mindset and really building your story around you and your belief about you. The second one is making quick decisions and actually implementing them. Because when we are in indecision, we are not doing anything, right. So we can be like, I don't know, who my target audience is, and your brain loves that kind of thing. Like, it's just, it's gonna come to me with time, it's not going to come to a time, it's going to come to you with making a decision, I started out as a relationship coach, true story. And then I made that decision. I knew it wasn't right, and then pivoted, right, like, it's really being willing to go out there and do it messy, which takes us to the third step of time hacking, which is really failing forward, that you will fail, you will get rejected, like, but learning from that is the value. And when you focus on those three things you are able to do, why pull the needle movers in your business or in your work or in your life or in your relationships or in dating, however, it shows up the uncomfortable stuff where you have to have your own back and make those decisions. And then you end up achieving a lot more in literally a fraction of the time, because we can busy ourselves all day long with like just social media platforms that we want to post on or consume on. So but those things, the things that are gonna move us forward.
Yong Pratt 11:43
Yeah, and those needle movers are so important that I think we lose sight of them throughout the day, because there are all these distractions. There are the 15, tabs open. There are all the devices trying to get our attention all day long. So focusing on those things. I think if we all were to let go of all the extraneous things and just be in the moment, get into that state of flow, and be able to just to create, wow, can you imagine how much more productive how much happier how much more joyful, life and business could be?
Vikki Louise 12:17
Right. And I love that you mentioned flow, because that's it right? Like four hours a flow is worth like, is working whole week, like studies have shown it's like 500%, more productivity, something ridiculous. And we can't get into flow. One of the flow creators is focus. And so the moment we have 15, tabs open the moment we have our phone nearby, the moment we get out to the fridge, whatever it might be, we are literally blocking flow, which is like hyper productivity. And it's about minimizing those distractions, because our brain loves that satisfaction of crossing offer to do and responding to an email or message is cheap, upfront victory, right? It's like, Yes, it did that thing instead of like this uncomfortable thing that's gonna take me four hours.
Yong Pratt 13:11
For sure. And I cannot tell you the number of days when I reached the end of the day thinking, gosh, I was busy all day and I look back and there was nothing that was accomplished because I never let myself be in distractible. I never let myself get into that flow state. I just, my mind kept telling me why I'm busy. I'm doing all these things. But they were not the needle movers. And when I started shifting what that looked like, and working less, which is super counterintuitive, and making things easier for myself and really simple. Yeah, it's those little things that that seemed too good to be true, almost because we're taught that things are not going to be easy. Not that everything in business and life is easy. But there should be this sense of joy and lightness. And, and I know for myself now, I've I've been in business long enough to know that when things start feeling challenging when they feel hard. I either know that I'm working on the wrong thing in the moment, or the path that I'm going down is not the right one for me. And I'm trying to be like somebody else because I like what they're doing and want to have that. So how when you're working with clients, and you're going through this time packing activities, all the all the things that you do I know you have a lot, you have a whole membership based on this. There's a lot of modules, a lot of content they can go through when they're going through your content, and they see that there's a lot because this is this is something that my brain does too. And I think we all do. You got you log into a membership site. And all of a sudden there's so many options are so many things kind of like every day. And you have to choose these things. How do you help them I'm going to use this word which I know it's not a great word, but these the sense of overwhelm we sometimes feel when there's a lot to do, and we feel like there's a little bit of time to do it. How do we overcome the objection of time versus reality?
Vikki Louise 15:02
Yeah, it's such a great question because I really like one of my big things in everything I create is like everything you need, and nothing more. Like it's easy to continue to create. And really how I teach my people, my hackers how to use the portal is literally like, you can come in and get everything you need from one of the five minute videos that you can binge it if you want over a weekend. But like, typically, it's broken down into like answering a specific question. You're going to go in and get what you need and go out or like, like, literally some of the people are like I've not, I've not used the portal yet, I'm just showing up for the live coaching, or just showing up in the Facebook community. And some people I'm not using the live coaching, but it really is a pick a mix. And because it's like a lifetime access program, there's no urgency to like, I must do it all now. So that immediately releases the overwhelm and the pressure and allows for, like self learning through that practice. Now, at the same time, part of what I do teach people is how to manage things like overwhelm, because obviously a lot of people come to me doing all of the things and we want to unhinge overwhelm, before we make decisions, we don't to be making decisions from a place of Oh, wow. So like if someone literally was experiencing overwhelm, they can also go into the portal, or go to the Facebook community and ask for coaching direct from, you know, direct from me and get the coaching that they want on the overwhelm they're experiencing so that we can reduce that first.
Yong Pratt 16:27
Oh, that's so good. And yeah, that's just seems like it to be a recurring theme in my life, too. I know that I can feel it coming on. So yeah, I have to kind of step away from things to say, Okay, this is not the time to do this. Because whatever I create, with this mindset from this place from this energy is not going to be great. And I'm probably going to do it over again. So might as well just step away and do something else. Go outside play at the dog play the kids just go for a walk do something else. So let's let's shift a little bit and talk about content creation, because I know as a membership creator, a course creator. First of all, what is your favorite way that you like to create content?
Vikki Louise 17:09
As in like, what's my favorite platform like video voice?
Yong Pratt 17:11
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Vikki Louise 17:12
This. I literally love talking to people I like it's my favorite thing to do to be in conversation with humans. And I'm happy for it to be on video. I'm happy for it to be on podcast. And like, sometimes people bring me in and they'll do like a q&a for their community or a q&a for their employees, or whatever it is. Like I love just like being asked questions and answering it. Now in saying that one of the things that I've been working to and I love I love creating my podcasts, of course. But one of the things that I've been working with, for the love is writing, like, I really do enjoy writing, and I came at it with so many stories from school of like, you were good at maths, not English, and you not a good writer. And so I am having fun playing with that as well. But I think like you say like I'm really at a point in my business now where my team literally today like we're just you know repurposing a lot of the content. I now have over 100 podcast episodes, even if that's 10 minutes each. That's like, a lot of content. I have, you know, hundreds of emails and social posts and all of this stuff. Like, I do think that comes a point. And you can probably tell me more about this. And this even ties in with time hacking and time optimization of like, do we need to say something new all the time? Or can we like I love reading a book a second time, same book, and the third time and beyond? Because we take something different from it depending on where our head is at that time. And I think so often with content, and you'll tell me more we do sit in the psych more is more culture. It's like yes isn't always true.
Yong Pratt 18:52
Yeah. And I recently just did an episode all about the Myth of Myth and how that leads to overwhelm and, and confusion. And usually, the idea of stopping everything you're doing and I'm sure you can hear my chickens right now. They're actually going a little crazy right now. So for all of you listening, you get to hear what the chickens sound like if you don't have the, the opportunity to have them near you. So I'm going to let them do their thing for a moment. But yeah, the idea of the Myth of More and what I do with clients a lot now is we talk about do you really need more? Or can you be like the rock star that gives a concert in 50 cities across the US and the playlist is the same? It doesn't matter that the people who are coming to listen have all the CDs have watched all the YouTube videos. Yourknow download podcast episodes, whatever they're doing, they're still paying money to come and see this person live right just a different medium a different way to connect. And so when it comes to content, yes, I I really love helping my clients to dig into this content goldmine where they can take these podcast episodes and you know, there's there's five of these that are kind of on the same feed. They weren't recorded next to each other, they were, you know, they were months or years apart. But what if I put them together in an exciting new way and offer that up as a freebie or, you know, a low cost offer, you know, $7, $17, just to give people the opportunity in a way that makes sense for them, to connect more with you. And that's what I, what I love to do. So when you're talking about repurposing content, I get so excited about. Wow, we probably do this. And you can do this. And I love to help people monetize the content they already have. Because if we can get off the cycle of creating more and more and more and more, and focus on what we already have, like, there's so much goodness, just in that bit.
Vikki Louise 20:45
Right. And it's so funny, because twice I've done it when I recorded a podcast published there, and then said to my husband, like I've literally used the same title. Because I've been so in that space of like, there was one I did you know, it was before it was even before time hackers existed when I was still coaching one on one call, create more time. And then there was creating more time 2.0. And I was like, Oh my god, it's two weeks apart. But like, what, because I've been focusing that two weeks, I'm thinking about the creation of more time. And it happens. So exactly what you're saying I'm sure I'm sure I'm not the only one that has that, like content, repeat or how you would call it. Very funny.
Yong Pratt 21:30
Yeah. And last week, I did an episode all about my three step framework to to really dive in and monetize your content. And it was about this. About if you were to put all your content in one place and look at it, you probably be surprised at how many themes are are woven through your content four, or five or six, probably themes that you didn't realize you created them, because maybe even if they were two weeks apart, maybe they're two months apart, or two years apart. I know I've gone backwards, you know, we're on episode, you know, over 300 now, so I mean, when I go back, I'm thinking, Oh, I did a very similar episode. But there's something in your brain that you know, wants to be shared, and you know that it's going to resonate with people. So you just keep creating from these same buckets? And what if you took these buckets, and then group them together and offered something new and exciting. So yes, one of my favorite topics. So let's talk about content creation and time. I, this podcast has listeners all over the board but in entrepreneurship. A lot of course creators, a lot of coaches, a lot of consultants, people who work one on one or group progress with people. So they're having to create content. But what I hear sometimes, too, is it's so hard to come up with these ideas. So first of all, I want to know, where do you get the inspiration to create your podcast episodes to share?
Vikki Louise 22:52
Yeah, so firstly, like I say, I think it's like a you, I would say to anyone that's like, it's so hard to come up ideas. Like are you giving yourself space and play to be creative? Or you shoving your creativity hour, like in between answering emails and phone calls, like, this is what I speak about, like really the value of like giving yourself space, create such higher quality content that differentiates you from the market, which is why like producing 100 pieces of content isn't like literally just, you know. I see these things like download, like 30 templates, or content or whatever it is, they can totally do that, it's probably going to be a waste of time.
Yong Pratt 23:30
Vikki Louise 23:32
And in that time, if you were to create three pieces of like you really connecting with your experience, your expertise, your people, like it would just blow up blow things out of the water. And so in saying that I get a lot of my content from my own experience, and having coached hundreds of clients and now having a community and, and it can be the simplest thing. Like someone messaged me, like messaged my Team a while ago and said, I would love to join, but I don't want to get into more debt. And I sat with and I thought so interesting. Like because we're all therefore she's basically saying I'm gonna get into time debt. And so like sometimes like someone could just say one thing. And if your brain is clean and empty, it doesn't have to take time to create content. It's the last thing it creates. In fact, I would challenge anyone, like what if spaciousness creates content. And another thing that you touched on, which I think is true is like, it doesn't all have to be brand new content. I feel like I'm in a particularly creative time right now I'm slowing myself down. But really like for me, I can just speak about failure and rejection. I can just speak about, you know, outdated time practices. I can just speak about, you know, managing our minds and our thoughts about us. And I can just speak about decision making. And I can do those four topics in like 100 different ways each because, and I hope. My husband's training to be a pilot and he's studying right now. And I heard him yesterday, you're like, Oh, got it on this exam, these failed ones. And it's, you know, it's in lots of times studying it, but it just clicked in one moment, what makes those moments happen, right. And that's what time hacking is. And that's what I think we create for our people as well, like, saying something to someone, once. It's like, very nice, we get it, we get the theory. But when you keep saying the different ways, at some point, they're gonna have the moment that he had, which is like, Oh, my God, I get it now.
Yong Pratt 25:31
Absolutely. Just like being in school and having and struggling with a subject I struggled with, in with math in school, and I got to college and kind of had the struggle. And I had this teacher, this one teacher, and all of a sudden, all those years of struggle kind of melted away. So I think we all have these moments. But you said something really important. And I think that is the word space, in spaciousness. What if we just gave ourselves space, and the freedom to just think about stuff? Or just let our minds wander? And let our let ourselves be curious about stuff and not have to be restricted on? Okay, it's Monday, I have to create my content for the week, I have to schedule it out. Yeah, what if? What if we could be inspired by more because we know we've tapped into so little of our brain? What if we just allow that space to happen? So let's, I'm curious to know, because everyone that I interview has a different way they like to create content. So are you a batcher? Are you a someone who likes to do spur of the moment? What is your philosophy or your the way that you are most productive with your content?
Vikki Louise 26:39
I do, I am, I do tend to be a batcher, especially because I tend to do like serious. And I do like to be a few weeks ahead on my business at all points. So like, again, that creates lots of spaciousness. And like, you know, alleviates that like I have to I need to do this thing today. And so I tend to be a batcher. And I also for me, I really prioritize my like hours off, like my hours not working. But again, I do think it's one of those things where I really encourage everyone to like play with what works for them. And I would even say, like, what used to work for me was like strictly in the calendar. And that's what I'm going to do it. And it can evolve with you. It's kind of like, and this is a funny example. But like our relationship with food, like you can like one food five years ago and not like it anymore. We're constantly evolving and changing. And when we are living today, based off of like, not only like global practices, 100 years old, but personal practices that are like five years old, like this is what I mean giving ourselves time to play. So for me, it's definitely batching. But in saying that, recently, my podcasts I have not been matching. So I'm willing to like, play with that side of things as well.
Yong Pratt 28:02
I love that, because I think a lot of us get so hung up on, we have to do things a certain way because it didn't work before. But if we try different things, I'm always trying different things. You know, there was a time in my life when I had social media batched out for a year. And that was okay. I mean, it felt good. And it said, Good. It felt good to say out loud, and like sort of I wore that as a badge of honor. But at the end of the day, it didn't really matter. And right now, you know, I may be a week ahead my podcast, you know, I used to be months ahead. So yeah, giving yourself that space to try different things. Because there is no one-size-fits-all. I have tried a lot of programs trying to go be that square peg in that round hole. And it's never worked for me, it probably hasn't worked for any of my listeners either. When you try to do it exactly like somebody else has laid out because that is their lived experience. That is not our lived experience. Oh my goodness, so much good stuff. Yes, this idea of time. So if you were to give somebody a piece of advice on the idea of how they view time and how they can create more of it without having to do more, what would you tell them?
Vikki Louise 29:13
So the one thing that is like something simple to like leave people with I guess to start with is like, think about this a bit maybe it's a bit too much for some people but think about time is there was like a person like, What's your relationship like with time? Because a lot of people come to me with like a shitty relationship with time. I tell is never enough. It's like you know, it's like thinking like if you if you were to replace time with like Sarah, and you're like, literally get all your thoughts about time. There's not enough because like she's always doing it. I'm always spending it wrong, like the days are flying by like, whatever it is like how are you showing up for that relationship with time? If it's complaining, you know, and shoveling lots of things on it at once. You just want to step back and think like what is the only thing that you need? To change is just your relationship with time.

And the second thing that I want to give people because it's also another way that I speak about time hacking is, and maybe you'll notice it like as a society, we widely accepted time excuse, there's never enough time, we need more time, it's not the right time. Like, it's really you'll hear it everywhere. I hear it everywhere. And so we're giving time responsibility for any of the things so we don't want and then what we subconsciously do is give time responsibility for any of the things that we do, which is why we slow ourselves down so much when, on the one hand, it's like times, the reason that I don't have the job that I want, or the client that I want, because I've not been in business long enough. They were also saying, like, all time, like it was just the right time and timing got me this client, which is like stealing confidence away from ourselves. And so I just really challeng everyone to also think like, if it wasn't time, if you couldn't use the word time, which is what we do in time hackers, what is underneath it? So if I created this higher, not by being somewhere at the right time, by what? By listening. by being creative. By presenting their problem better than they understood it themselves. By, you know, trusting them by trusting myself, but what was it? That's how you create a repeatable blueprint, which is really time hacking.

Ah, so good. Yes. Take back your confidence. Take ownership of that, and don't give time so much responsibility in your life. I love that. Just that idea alone of not not giving that power away to this idea of time, which is very, which is very esoteric, right. It's not really what we think it is. It's just kind of there. So I love that. So Vicki, I want to make sure that people can connect with you and find out more about how you serve and your membership, where is the best place for them to connect with you?
Vikki Louise 31:52
Yeah, you can go to my website, www.VikkiLousise.com. It's V-I-K-K-I-L-O-U-I-S-E. You can connect with me on Instagram, which is @VickiLouise___ And you can I definitely recommend listening to the podcast, it's F*ck Anxiety and get an image that will come up soon. It's the only one with that name.
Yong Pratt 32:16
Amazing. Yes. And I'll make sure I put all those links in today's show notes as well. All you have to do is head over to my website, www.YongPratt.com. You can just do a search of Vikki's name or anxiety. I'll tag it with all those good things that you can find her because time hacking, especially moving into summer is something we all need to think about. We all need to take back control of time, however we do it. And we need to do it in a way that works for us. So Vikki, I want to thank you so much for your generosity today, and sharing all these great tools and hacks with us. I so appreciate you for being here.
Vikki Louise 32:51
Thank you. I'm so happy to be here. And I do think it would be fun to share with the listeners just before we go that this was an example of time hacking. I got an email from you yesterday saying, You're opening up to emails, I replied. We made the email today. Like it all happened within 24 hours. And that's just a powerful example of like, things don't take time. Once I like open my calendar, I could have been like, when's the right time? Maybe next week, maybe the week after? You know, there's always a filler versus I could do it tomorrow.
Yong Pratt 33:20
Absolutely just being open to the possibilities of it. And yes, and just embracing the opportunities that are in front of us, and making space for that in our lives. So thank you so much for being here. I really appreciate it. Cheers, everyone.

Oh my goodness. Do you now think of time differently after this episode? I know my mind is racing. And I have notes on my desk from during the interview, about time and how much we're actually giving away our power to this idea of time, which which is really a fictional concept. It's something just a construct that we all have learned throughout our growing up on how to relate to it and how we have too much or not enough. What if we like Vikki said, give ourselves some space? And we just allow things to happen and the world no longer slaves to time. Okay, my friend, I'd love for you to come and share your biggest takeaways, your biggest ahas. You can do that on today's show notes over on my website, www.Yong Pratt.com and you can just search up Vikki's name or you can head over to my Facebook community, the Arena of Awesome, it is still free and we are accepting new members.
