Frank Bealer is one of the most productive people Carey knows, and he doesn’t say that lightly.
Frank deconstructs how he has grown his productivity in 3 distinct seasons of his life as a leader in his 30s. At 22, he became CEO, and over the last decade and a half has worked on the senior leadership teams of Elevation Church, ReThink and is now also the CEO of the Phase Family Center. Frank talks about he’s grown his productivity through high demand seasons.

3 Insights from Frank
1. Minor changes can lead to massive productivity results
Often times, the way your place of work is structured and organized can be the biggest enemy to your productivity. Workplace habits can make or break your bottom line. Find when you are habitually distracted or counter-productive and find a way to stop.
A little more discipline can produce a lot more results. Something as simple as not having chairs in your personal office can have a massive impact on your productivity. It changes all your meetings to standing meetings rather than sitting. Surrounding your workplace with those minor changes are a critical step to reaching your goals.
2. Hurry home
Highly motivated people are often tempted to “grind it out” and stay in the office for unnecessarily long hours. Eventually, you see that burning the candle at both ends does not lead to getting more done, but will probably lead to you burning out.
If you stay disciplined, you can accomplish the same amount of work in a 10-hour shift with a “hurry home” mindset as an 18-hour shift where you are “just grinding it out.” This is how you can win at work and at home.
3. If you don’t lean into a calendar you give yourself to chaos
Being a slave to your calendar ultimately sets you free. You are free to control what does and doesn’t make it into your life. If you live without control of your calendar, those things that are urgent will begin to take priority over the things that are actually important.
If you take control of your calendar, you can understand the fallout of your schedule-related decisions before you make them. Understanding the consequences is key to making the right choice.

Last Chance to Get the High Impact Leader at this Price!
Do you want to unlock more of your potential in life and leadership without sacrificing time with your family and your health?
Sounds crazy, but it’s not. I know because I’ve lived it. A few years back, I seriously crashed and burned because the demands on my time and life were bigger than the time I had to accomplish them. I promised myself that wouldn’t happen again.
Today, I still have bigger goals than ever before, but I’ve made fundamental changes that have led to a healthier, happier lifestyle without sacrificing my family and vastly increasing my productivity at work. I’ve taken what I’ve learned during this journey and put it into the High Impact Leader course.
You can complete the three-hour course at your own pace. It’s the most comprehensive content I’ve ever created for leaders to help you reclaim HOURS every day so you can become more effective at work and more present at home. When your time, energy, and priorities are all working together for you, it’ll impact everything you do.
- You become a better leader, because you’re doing what you do best when you’re at your best
- You become a better spouse, because you’re focused at home
- You become a better parent, neighbor, and friend, because you actually have time off to relax and engage
These principles will free you to thrive in every area of your life.

Next Episode: Rich Birch
Here’s a question. When 94% of churches aren’t growing, what do the 6% do that the others don’t? Rich Birch has worked at three growing megachurches, and distills the things they do that others don’t in a way that can apply to a church of 50 as easily as a church of 5000. Rich talks to Carey in particular about the nuts and bolts of growing weekend attendance.
