How I Achieved 500 Percent Productivity and How You Can Too...............

Before you read this EPIC story, do me a favor. Please enter your email to the right to subscribe. I have FREE E-books, infographics, and a TON of great goodies I give away. I'd love to share these with you periodically. Thanks!! - Dr. Rob 





If you are reading this, you are CLEARLY a new friend. I have 26 subscribers as I write this. That will change today (Dec 29). The Tipping Point has been achieved. But that's another story.

To set the stage, I have been on a two week spree of INSANE growth. I have been waking up after sleeping for four hours and doing 12-15 hour days like nothing. Its pretty exciting when you see the results of 12 years of work finally. So sleeping four hours and waking up at 1230am to do this is not really unusual. The results WERE and that's why you are here.

The Situation:
I am an expert in speed learning/productivity. In order to gain proof of concept with my tribe, I wanted to conduct an experiment that would show people what habits multiply productivity and which ones MURDER it. Hence, the "Dr. Rob Hell Day Challenge."

The Rules:
Wake up naturally and complete a 16 task checklist by 6pm. The tasks are to be completed within an hour each and the entire thing has been designed for the following ratio:

76% tasks that create a PS (possible sale)
24% tasks that create E (exposure for my performance coaching, current 2 week business boot camp and my magazine SHIFT Advanced Life Design) SHIFT Magazine SuperCoach Issue Link










I decided to throw in a few challenges as well to see how they would add fun. You know, easy stuff like write an E-book from scratch, design it, and create the landing page and start selling it......DURING THE TRIAL. Throw in 2 free coaching calls I offered in the middle and it got interesting.
Checklist or "Why I don't have a girlfriend"

The Experience
My eyes pop awake at 12:30 am. DAMN. I have to follow through. I swing out of bed and take a cold shower. Remember when the cops sprayed down Rambo with that ice cold firehose water and he beat up 6 of them, fought off a 200 man National Guard Unit single-handedly and blew up a town? Ice cold water generates testosterone and puts your body in survival mode. For those new friends reading this, I take cold showers 7 days a week. 
Bad Idea


0130 - Sit down in front of computer. First post to Facebook. First task due at 0300. Stark Industries shirt selected because I AM TONY STARK. Minus the models, sports cars, mansion, self esteem, a mother's love etc..........
Oh You Poor Ignorant Bastard

0230 - This is AWESOME, coffee is kicking in and I'm going to KICK ASS. AMERICA!!!!

0400 - First video up. How to Balance a 9-5 and Your Side Hustle Plus Freebie 


0600 - I am blacking out and typing much slower. By this time I have written two posts, and made a custom video for a biz group. Still on task.

0630-0700 - Cheat nap. I sleep like I just ate a bowl of Valium flavored applesauce.

0900 - So delirious that I mix up days in my private Facebook group, First 30 ELITE. No one notices. I have stepped into a warp of the space time continuum and honestly think its a different day.

1100 - Going strong, tasks done on time. Fascinated with friends on FB that can devote 4 hours a day to arguing about Trump, pit bulls, Monsanto, things that they have no control of. 

1330 - First coaching call. Runs a little long, I am 1.5 hours ahead in my tasks so I allow it. Client tells me she got four sales the day after a strategy call. I am VERY happy. 

1500 - Have now made two videos, a blog post, several targeted FB posts and given away 3 freebies.

1600 - Power nap. Have a scary dream about cars driving backwards.

1630 - Second call. Start thinking about E-book concept while talking to client with AMAZING story.

1700 - Still working on E-book. Slightly behind schedule. Choose a pic for cover that will INFURIATE my graphic designer friends who let me know I have the design skills of a person fighting severe drug issues and possible Parkinson's. I start to tremble knowing I HAVE TO DESIGN THE DAMN LANDING PAGE, link to E-junkie and then do connection tests to make sure its working.

1730 - Third video created and posted. "Diagramming for Business" 

1800 - Time is up. Not finished, I'm going to ride this out. My clients deserve a coach that never effiin quits. 

1930 - Post E-book to Facebook and private group with a cryptic message telling them to expect a GREAT story in the morning.

The Results:

26 Possible Sale Events from Postings 

8 Exposure Events from Postings

Made posts in SIXTEEN Facebook groups

2 content videos created on the spot and posted

1 blog post created on the spot and posted

2 coaching calls completed

1 Productivity based E-book written, designed, and published to landing page PLUS delivery system completed 

Nikki Scroggins did NOT make this cover and I'm sure she will hate it. Sorry.
Ill never stop being a fancy girl with my covers.  

5 freebies given away

BONUS: Creation of an awesome Excel sheet that lets you type in your desired annual income and 
automatically breaks it into monthly, weekly, and daily totals so you can set your sales goals (available on yesterday's blog post if you want it)

BONUS: Creation of a ten point business diagnostic checklist that is ALREADY changing the game for my clients

BONUS: Created reference sheet of Facebook groups in niche, number of members


Lessons Learned: 

1. Checklist with TIMED taskers is essential and creates sense of urgency.

2. Prepare checklist the NIGHT before.

3. First ten minutes awake, walk around and think. Then take notes and adjust checklist.

4. Stricter time requirements are needed for client calls, overlap affects progress on harder tasks

5. Mitigating dead end Messenger convos is CRUCIAL. No I don't want to hear about your cat, Random Friend that has a lot spare time.

6. Action based results helped out a lot. Thinking about the WHY was huge. Thanks Simon Sinek.

7. If one easy task was done early, start tough task early.

8. Posting a premade video saves a TON of time.

9. E-book plus landing page took 2.5 hours.

10. Phone is biggest distractor with texts and noises, keep upside down, vibrate off to get things done.


Final Thoughts

Thanks for reading this, this was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I love teaching people how to be more efficient. Despite my efforts to get some rest today (Thursday, Dec 29th), I got up at 4am and completed THIS:

3 stage business diagnostic used to create exposure and maximum profits

The outline for this blog

My three tier system for categorizing what tier a business is operating in

The formula for strong business health

Tasker list for today 4/15 complete plus 4 calls

Results of self diagnostic of my business



I'm still amazed I failed out of high school and two colleges.

Five FREE Tools Every Entrepreneur Needs to Get Ahead

Hey there!! Want to be notified when I am posting AMAZING business/life articles or giving away tickets to see Michael Mcdonald? Well, I can promise ONE of those things. Subscribe on the right to receive the Blue Dragon Blog twice a week!!! WOOOO!

Today's blog post is exciting. I gathered a lot of resources from my own business practice and am going to hook you up with the ESSENTIAL tools for working at a much higher level. I'll explain what each one does, its rationale and how to best use it. I'm excited for you because once you start using these things, you will see a HUGE change within a week. My results have been unbelievable since assembling these items. How unbelievable?

"I GOT THE BATEMAN ACCOUNT!! WOOOOO!!
1. Income and Reverse Breakdown Generator

Description: The IRBG is a great tool for comparing your desired income vs sales performance. You just write down your sales goal for the year and it helps you break down to month, week, and day goals. VERY useful for lighting the fire on slow income days. 

Rationale: The IRBG is more than just creating an income goal, which is a bare minimum requirement for serious entrepreneurs. Its a way to tell EXACTLY how much money you should be earning every day to reach your goals

What's that you say? "Dr. Rob, I don't have an IRBG and I'm getting carpal tunnel from using the calculator obsessively to run these numbers."

I did something REALLY nice for you. Something so nice you should buy me coffee today. 



Type in your desired yearly goal and BOOM!! All done. 


2. List of Prospects

Description: Your list of prospects are people that have emailed or private messaged you on social media about your services. This list is VITAL because you can start building the rapport even if they are not in a position to buy immediately. A loyal customer will turn back to you when they are ready to purchase if you build a strong enough bond. 

Rationale: Your LOP can be a GREAT strategy if you have to meet a last minute sales goal. Check in with them and see if you can close a sale by offering a small discount or freebie if they didnt purchase initially.


3. Current Projects

Description: A current projects display is a figure that shows all active projects, timeline, and next logical step towards completion.

Rationale: Your current projects display will keep you reminded about deadlines and the next step can help you when deciding on daily taskers. This is best done on a dry erase board.


4. Media and Speaking Schedule

Description: This is a VITAL tool for keeping track of your PR appointments.

Rationale: Your media and speaking schedule keep you in the spotlight increasing your visibility and earning you potential new paying clients EVERY appearance. Here is one example of how to create one: 


5. Daily Schedule

Description: Your daily schedule is used to both delegate taskers and to keep track of social media posts. 

Rationale: The schedule helps you to remember what groups you need to post in, keeps you balanced, and gives you an easy to use template for posts. It can also be used to compile influencers that you can partner up with. 

STEAL ME DAMMIT


So there you have it. Five tools that can help you get organized, keep track of your sales goals, locate your prospects, and more. If you need a SERIOUS boost to creating an organized system, I offer strategy calls that have a valuable multi tiered approach:

1. 20 minute free pre-qualifying call to make sure I'm the best candidate for you before you pay
2. A custom 10 point business diagnostic that alerts you to weak areas in your business
3. My new E-Book The Next Level which has 16 ways to speed learn ANYTHING plus 5 celeb interviews
4. A one month power strategy for your business augmenting your areas for improvement
5. Assistance designing YOUR custom daily scheduler. 

All this with your one hour call. Email me at dragonsgold76@gmail.com to set up your FREE 20 minute pre-qualifying call. - Dr. Rob

How to NOT Get Ripped Off When Buying Life Coaching

Sign up on the right to receive these amazing blog posts. I shall then sell your emails to a murky Eastern European conglomerate -------bwahahahahaha (rubbing fingers together) No, just kidding, Ill just show you how to be successful and wildly amazing.


Life coaching can be a great investment. The industry itself has grown by huge numbers in the last decade as popular top tier coaches inspire with their lifestyles and wealth. But there is a downside. Due to low barriers of entry, a very small percentage of low impact frauds have infiltrated the industry and are causing harm to the very perception of everyone that is a life or performance coach .

This post isnt to call anyone out .I'm too classy for that, and lawsuits are expensive. I'm going to do THREE things.

1. Reveal the shady shit that is going on so you can educate yourself before losing thousands.

2. Give you a five point diagnostic system for coach evaluation.

3. Make you an offer that will AMAZE you with its awesomeness (no, its not a free puppy).


Popular Scams

Coaching essentially comes in two forms:

1. You hire someone to teach you how to BE a coach

2. You hire someone to teach you a skill

Here are some of the ways that the frauds are stealing your money:



1. Lie and Bail - Coach posts in Facebook groups about how much money they are making and how great their lifestyle is. Client signs up. Coach immediately blocks them after payment, refuses refund and moves to next mark. (The SAME person has ripped off 7 of my friends this way)

2. Bait and Switch - Coach promises  how they can give YOU a luxury lifestyle, financial freedom, blah blah blah. When you sign up for their membership site, the content is written at a 7th grade level with very general advice that doesn't help you do a damn thing. Refunds are purposely VERY difficult to achieve.

3. Pay to Play - "Guru" pays a high visibility business podcast's "Make Me Famous" fee. Lies about earnings and continues to coach despite hundreds of consumer complaints about poor quality of content.

4. Empty Promises - Coach promises specific results and has either NO experience in field or NO techniques to help client grow their business. When threatened with refund, coach pulls their head out of their ass and promises to return calls on time, pay attention to client or you know, EARN THEIR FEE. This one pisses me off the most because its very common today.


Now that you have seen what is going on out there, you realize how important it is to SCREEN anyone before investing your hard earned money into them. You wouldn't buy a car without a test drive, checking price against Blue Book prices, and asking friends about what they think, right? RIGHT?

So why in the hell are you plunking down money because of what some coach TELLS you? That's like walking on the car lot and buying the FIRST car the dealer suggests.

Does that sound smart to you?


5 Point Diagnostic Before Hiring a Coach:

1. Google the coach to see what pops up. Combine their name and "scam". This will at least let you see if there are complaints, FTC actions, possible criminal background etc.

2. Find someone that has hired them and HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH THEM. Ask about the experience, any negatives and their overall results from working with the coach. Testimonials can and WILL be faked by the duplicitous.

3. If you are purchasing training, do they have content you can review? There is NOTHING worse than dropping 4k and finding out this person lifted everything from Jack Canfield.

4. Do they have credibility like news appearances, contributions in their field, appearance on a variety of media?

5. Do they ask questions about YOUR goals during discovery calls, or do they just try and get a sale as quickly as possible?

Amazing and Awesome Offer

You read this post because you are interested in coaching. You clearly want someone that can help you be more successful or guide you to life success.

I can absolutely get you there.

I'm a high school dropout from a bad family thats now an Ed.D, keynote speaker, 8 time author, and magazine owner.

Google Blue Dragon Rob Garcia.

That's the level of exposure I can help someone gain. My network is formidable and helps me to develop HIGH level strategies to make you more money, get more sales, and be better at ANYTHING.

I give a FREE discovery call to make sure that I'm the right guy for the job. Then we discuss what strategies are best for your goals. No money is ever exchanged until I have a plan mapped out with timelines, milestones and appropriate tactics.

In ten years of coaching I have never been asked for a refund. I'm very proud of that because it means my clients have purchased VALUE.

So if you are ready to move forward in 2017 with some AMAZING programs and training, find me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bluedragonrob/

or email: dragonsgold76@gmail.com

If you arent ready to invest just yet, I ALWAYS offer free general advice. You deserve abundance, we all do. Contact me if I can help you with anything in business or life.

Why Being Nice is the New MBA

I had a huge shift in my business a few months ago. It wasn’t anything difficult or groundbreaking. In fact, it was rather easy and started yielding HUGE results. My friends on Facebook noticed immediately.

“Are you on Prozac?”

“I don’t know what you are doing but keep it up”

“This is who you always should have been”

All I did was get a “Degree in Nice.”

Taking a cue from a few friends, I modified behaviors and focused on helping others.

*I stopped venting on Facebook

*I stopped posting divisive things that isolate people into groups. No more memes about pit bulls, gun control, politics, Monsanto, religion, or gay rights.

*Started showcasing my friends and recommending them to people that would hire them

*Reduced my online profanity by 95%

People that hadn’t contacted me in YEARS started quietly sending messages supporting this new me. Business owners started recommending me to clients. I got invited to podcasts and FB business groups.

We have forgotten the fundamental qualities of being nice and selfless. It took three people to bring me back. I want to publicly thank them. They pulled me back from a dark precipice and let the real Dr. Rob out. The guy that smiles at people during his morning run. The guy that pets cats and waves at kids. The guy that sees someone struggling to lift something into their car and helps them. That’s the guy I like being.



Lewis Howes is the host of the School of Greatness podcast. He is a bestselling author and makes his living helping people and connecting them. When he is not interviewing celebrities, he gets involved in companies like Pencils of Promise and travels to places like Ghana to help build schools for impoverished children. He is the epitome of nice and the kind of guy that you want as a friend.







Dennis Langlais is the host of Five Minute Bark, a video podcast in La Jolla, California. He is a former professional BMX rider turned media giant and gives hundreds of hours a year helping to promote others. He uses his high aptitude video skills to help other people reach their dreams and is a top level connector. The great thing about Dennis is that he will IMMEDIATELY help you and never ask for payment, he just does it to see you succeed. He is the epitome of selfless and I am grateful for meeting him. You can find him at www.codiedog.com.






Steve Simeone is a comedian that has been referred to as “The Nicest Guy in Hollywood.” I have met Steve three times in person and this is definitely an understatement. Steve is generous, has traveled overseas to entertain the troops. raises blood for hospitals and reaches out to sick children. Steve GENUINELY loves everyone in his life and his podcast, “Good Times With Steve Simeone” takes you back to the good memories of childhood, funny relatives, and the dynamics of hilarious family interaction. I cannot recommend it enough. You can find Steve at www.awesomesteve.com.






In closing, I just wanted to say thank you guys for teaching me far more about succeeding in business than I learned from a graduate degree. Being nice is already paying huge rewards and I can’t thank you three enough.

3 GREAT Things We Can Learn From Prince



We lost an icon today. Prince was one of the most talented and versatile performers in musical history. He was literally at the level of Madonna, Springsteen or Michael Jackson.

If you tried to explain Prince to someone in 1984, it was just, well..................different.

"Yeah, he's a short black man dressed in white ruffled pirate shirts, a purple crushed velvet jacket and high heeled boots riding a purple motorcycle around Minneapolis.............and playing rock."

The universal appeal of Prince was that he represented all of us that felt alienated by society. Purple Rain hit SUCH a chord with most people because it was about his struggle as a musician while enduring an abusive family situation and resistance from everyone around him.

As his fame grew, he changed his look, he evolved, but he was still in essence, the same guy we all loved and adored. A musical genius that never got too arrogant, that still LOVED performing and reaching out to fans.

Here are three things I LOVED about Prince.

1. He Walked His Own Path

Prince never let the opinions of others sway what he was going to do. He set out to write sexy, intriguing music that captivated people. He took huge risks including changing his name and leaving a major record label. He never doubted himself because he realized a fundamental truth. His true fans would follow him NO MATTER WHAT. The critics would complain as usual, and Prince would just ride his motorcycle up Sunset laughing in the wind. 


2. He EMBRACED His Creativity

Prince experimented with many musical sounds. "Let's Go Crazy" sounds VERY different from "7."
Prince wasn't scared to write songs about deep intense love and passion and ballads then turn around and write something SHOCKING like "P Control" or a party jam like "1999."


3. He Kept His Humility

I have to be really honest. I never met Prince. But I heard plenty of stories. He would embrace his Jehovah's Witness roots and go door knocking to try and save others. He would show up in a dimly lit club unannounced in Hollywood and play for hours. He would have meaningful and deep conversations with fans. He kept it together and despite being larger than life, never became arrogant or brash. 

I loved Prince. I always will. Because he's a part of all of us. We will always have Purple Rain, his amazing albums and some very odd posters. We should all try and emulate him by being bold, by taking chances and going out of our way to be..................... abundant.


Thanks guys, do me a favor and share this post if you love Prince. Let's keep his memory alive.

Dr. Rob.

*Bullying* A Tribute to Evan Ziemniak. Warning: Language Alert

I read tonight about a story that broke my heart. 12 year old Evan Ziemniak hung himself after months of bullying. His family reported these incidents and school officials did little to nothing to deter it.



I see a lot of myself in this young man. I was subject to years of bullying and a lot more harassment than most kids are subject to. I wanted to take my own life in 9th grade often because EVERY. SINGLE. DAY there was a group of people waiting to make fun of me or treat me like garbage.

I had a rough family. I didn't have a lot of money growing up. 90% of my family members were drug addicts or alcoholics. It wasn't a fun time.



I wish I could talk to Evan, to tell him that it gets better. I wish I could give him a hug and reassure him that one day, he's going to grow up and lift weights and no one will DARE harass him. That he would go to college and those assholes, those cowards will get what they deserve, because LIFE catches up to people. 

I grew up. I lifted weights. I took martial arts. I became a teacher and I protected my kids. When I saw bullying in my class, Mr Garcia would have a very direct and very unpleasant convo, explaining in great detail what a weekend surprise home visit would be like.

I wrote a teen book called Teen Juggernaut and included a chapter on bullying and how to deal with it. I made it free online here: http://www.bluedragonent.com/books.html

But its not enough. Because this shit still is happening. 

Evan, you were a great kid. You were probably just like me, quiet, polite, and didn't want to bother anyone, just finish school with some awkwardness and see what the future held. I read that you liked 
collecting coins and you had pet rabbits and cats. 

But that's what bullies do. They find quiet kids that cant defend themselves. They act in a revolting and cowardly fashion. I would give anything ANYTHING to catch someone doing this to you. To catch them harassing you on the bus. I wish I could have been your big brother Evan. Because you had a big heart. You had a lot of spirit. I'm writing this with tears in my eyes, because you were so close to my own life. I'm sorry for your pain, I'm sorry that there are bad people out there. 

And I'm sorry that you suffered alone. But you'll never be truly gone. We will remember you. And Amanda Todd. And every teen that decided they couldn't take the pain anymore. 

I'll keep speaking in schools, Ill keep writing and Ill keep mentoring. I'll do it for kids out there, just like you. That need my help. Your story really moved me. And I hope you're at peace.

4 Tactics That GREATLY Improved My Company

*Don't Forget to Enter Your Email For a Chance to Win Donald Trump's Toupee--->

It's the ceiling that gets me. Every time. 

I take a nap around 2pm every day. Since I usually wake up at 3-430am daily, I need a mid day power nap to recharge. When I wake up, this is what I see:


I smile every time. You know why? Because the same three thoughts enter my head:

1. Rob, you live in a cool apartment in a great part of town. No more wolf cot, no more dark studio.

2. You are done with your Ed.D, DOCTOR. 

3. You are your own boss. 

Seriously, for 7 years, I lived in a tiny studio. From age 30-37. I BARELY remember any of it because it was doctoral research, reserves, day job, sleep on wolf cot, repeat. 
"Do not envy my decadence"

Once I moved, I started developing business tactics that DRASTICALLY improved my life coaching company and helped me to evolve. I'd like to share my best four to help you in your journey. 

1. Learn to court influencers and offer a 3:1 value ratio

An influencer is someone that can create serious waves for you. They either have a major media platform, thousands of social media contacts, are well known in business, or have some type of high value "hook." Reach out to them and offer to promote them, ask for mentorship, or have an offer of value. Remember, they DO NOT need you, so be interesting and focus on the giving, not the taking, Greedo.
"Not so fast, Solo, Jabba wants ALL your Facebook friends"

2. Celebrate Your Friends/A Rising Tide Lifts All Ships

If you are lucky enough to have an inner circle as I do, focus on THEM first. Every week, I try and do something that directly helps my team. I pay attention if they are having a bad day and I write them internal memos that remind them how awesome they are. In return, they promote our group project, reach out to me, recommend people to me for business, and we all share the wealth as our businesses grow. 

3. Develop Resources

There are SO many tools out there that can shave off HOURS off your schedule. Hootsuite lets you auto-post to your social media. Canva helps you create graphic design related material. Skype can help you coach clients even overseas. Youtube, Blogger and Lulu help you create material so that you can sell content online. Get in the habit of exploring and cataloging whats out there. The more resources you can offer clients, the better you look. 

4. Develop a Fitness/Nutrition Plan

This one is crucial. Fitness will help you have better moods, raise your self esteem and give you a better quality of life. If you exercise a few times a week, cut down on flour and processed foods while eating more veggies and proteins, you will see HUGE changes. Take it to another level and start intermittent fasting (only eating 8 hours in a day) and REALLY see drastic change. 

That about wraps it up for this week, guys, have a great week and get hustling.
