Become aware of what’s important every day. By: Barta IV
Become aware of what’s important
In our Business Success Dynamics Mastermind sessions, we have identified that every decision matters. When we think about all of the distractions and drains on our time and energy, it is necessary that we know our most productive time of day and focus on high outcome for that time period. We are also aware of planned events and appointments. It is our responsibility to schedule around those to maximize results. Purposefully set your own agenda. Concentrate on what’s important, not what’s unimportant. Know yourself. Make good choices.
Block off time for what’s important
Consider intentional time blocking. What will this mean for you? How will this impact your productivity? What can you let go of? What freedom and peace of mind will you enjoy?
“It’s not what you do one day; it’s what you do every day.”
The Today Show series on civility had a profound impact on me. The suggestion that we be more present in what we are doing and aware of the impact of our actions on the world around us is something that is important for us all.
Here is the first in the series that examines all the ways our culture is being changed and effected by our pop culture. This one aired on November 1, 2010.
Here is the video from the Today Show episode on November 2, 2010. This video discusses how technology provides opportunity for us to be rude.
On this video, the question of “what has happened to please and Thank You?” is discussed. Here is the video from November 3, 2010.
“Leadership is not so much about technique and methods as it is about opening the heart. Leadership is about inspiration—of oneself and of others. Great leadership is about human experiences, not processes. Leadership is not a formula or a program, it is a human activity that comes from the heart and considers the hearts of others. It is an attitude, not a routine.
More than anything else today, followers believe they are part of a system, a process that lacks heart. If there is one thing a leader can do to connect with followers at a human, or better still a spiritual level, it is to become engaged with them fully, to share experiences and emotions, and to set aside the processes of leadership we have learned by rote.” ~Lance Secretan, Industry Week, 10/12/98
Begin your journey to true leadership
Your journey to great leadership begins with an inward quest to understand your true goals and visions. As a coach, I assist you in the seeking and examination that can put you on the path of true leadership.
