What R U Doing Right Now?

What R U Doing Right Now?

By Todd Durkin

For several years, I have been texting my pro athletes early morning video messages of me talking trash while I workout. I call them my “What r u doing right now?” messages.

I do it to get in their heads before they come in for their session. And light a little spark in their day. (I also like talking some smack :-))

There are a few things that I always have in my “What r u doing right now” messages:

1. I always have a hoodie on.
2. I always start with “Yoohoo…yeah, you know who it is…”
3. I’m always working out in my garage when I film it.
4. I always have a message for the day.
5. I always finish with a “What are you doing right now” and then blurting out a funny “Ahhhhhhh””” to end it.

And it often triggers a ton of laughs…and responses.

Today, I have filmed a “What r u doing right now” message just for your Dose of Durkin!!!

Today’s message is on “5 Tips for Peak Productivity.” And besides laughing, I think you will like these 5 tips.

When I started these “Dose of Durkin’s”, I told you that I was going to keep them real, grainy, authentic, and FUN… and this one is as real as it gets.

Hope you enjoy and would love to hear your thoughts afterwards.

Much love,
