Creating processes then working them fully

May 24, 2020

Putting the basics in place is key to achieving anything and, by creating processes then working them fully, we are doing just that.

Systems, workflows and processes tested and tweaked to maximize results can save us time, energy and even money in certain instances. We don’t need to worry about how to face routine issues. By creating processes then working them fully we are operating in the most productive manner we know.

What’s more, creating processes then working them fully for day-to-day activities means we are better positioned to engage unexpected items as they crop up.

Having the discipline to map out best practices to guide us each day is another question. For now, thank you for reading this ‘Creating processes then working them fully’ post and I hope it has offered some food for thought.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Using the achievement of one goal to reach the next

May 21, 2020

Instead of returning to point A, as it were, when attempting to complete a new undertaking, we can go about using the achievement of one goal to reach the next.

And using the achievement of one goal to reach the next ensures we maintain a certain consistency in our efforts.

Although a new endeavour might require us to employ different skills than those needed before, we are, in any case, operating with momentum and maximizing the experience of past accomplishments to lead us forward.

Furthermore, keeping our focus on winning, we build our ‘success muscles’ by using the achievement of one goal to reach the next. For now, thanks for taking time away from your activities today to connect here.

Being specific with our actions

May 17, 2020

Pick up any self-help manual or inspirational book and sooner or later we will come across the idea of being specific with our actions. That so many authors, leaders and mentors promote this point suggests it is worth, at least, exploring.

Being specific with our actions is opposite in thinking to the ‘hit and hope’ approach. Clarity of intention acts as a guide to how we prepare and implement activities aimed at producing predefined results.

Of course, there are few guarantees, but invariably success is built on the foundations of preparation, practice and being specific with our actions.

To explore the issue of being specific with our actions as part of a coaching conversation, get in contact.

In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘Being specific with our actions’ post and please don’t hesitate to like and share it.

Living beyond the nine-to-five routine

May 14, 2020

As much as we can associate with our daily activities, living beyond the nine-to-five routine suggests we are embracing life in the full sense of the word.

Whereas we might find comfort in doing things ‘because we have always done them’, at times it is worth reflecting on the value and direction they are providing. Living beyond the nine-to-five routine taps into the idea of connecting with our life purpose and working consistently to achieve it.

By living beyond the nine-to-five routine we give ourselves the opportunity to, as a wise person once suggested, keep our toes in the details and our eyes on the bigger picture.

Together these positions offer us an approach to dealing with the challenges of the present while continually striving towards our future objectives.

As ever, your thoughts on the ideas raised here are much welcomed so please feel free to leave a comment below. In any case, thanks for stopping by to read this ‘Living beyond the nine-to-five routine’ post.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Listening carefully before speaking clearly

May 10, 2020

There are some actions we undertake automatically, listening carefully before speaking clearly is unfortunately not always one of these if we consider the amount of poor communication swirling around us nowadays.

Listening carefully before speaking clearly offers many benefits, including:

a) a demonstration of respect for those engaged in the exchange;

b) certainty regarding the subject of the matter under discussion;

c) the opportunity for learning to occur;

d) a reduction in the need to repeat messages, details, instructions and the like.

You may be able to think of other reasons for listening carefully before speaking clearly. If you’d like to share your ideas, feel free to leave a comment below.

Right now, thanks for connecting here to read this ‘Listening carefully before speaking clearly’ post and please don’t forget to like and share it.

Being clear regarding what we do

May 7, 2020

Knowing our strengths and weaknesses is advantageous when looking to improve ourselves. Yet when faced with several professional opportunities, being clear regarding what we do is beneficial.

Attempting to do everything is rarely a wise option. Without being clear regarding what we do, we might make a rash selection and then spend considerable time and energy regretting our choice.

Being clear regarding what we do involves being honest with ourselves concerning our abilities as well as our passion. After all, when confronted with various possibilities it is sensible to consider the extent of our engagement with each. Limiting the question only to money won’t sustain our interest for long.

Or not. To share your thoughts on the issue of being clear regarding what we do, please leave a comment below.

In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘Being clear regarding what we do’ post and don’t hesitate to like and share it.
