We Know You Have All of The Answers!

Yes, you know better.

Your experience has allowed you to learn so much and you can really help by telling your people what they don’t know.

Spending lots of time telling people what to do next and how to do it is your speciality and man, does it work! Your people are off and running.

Running away! Being talked at is not a successful way to improve skills. Maybe you even talk about growth mindset and how experience is the best way to learn…and yet you don’t allow your people to make mistakes and learn by experience.

Yes, you, Coach.

Talk less, ask more and let’s see what they come up with.

Go With Your Strengths*

Should you work on your weaknesses or bolster your strengths?

Do you know what pieces of your game are in those categories? Are they the same as they were at some point in the past? Does it matter?

How about considering the things that are central to who you are, making decisions about what direction to go in and then doing what you said you would?

Too often we spend time and energy thinking about what we’ll think about and little time doing things and learning from the outcomes.

Go.

Be Your Best > Do Your Best

Let’s do our best. Great advice and we should strive to perform at all times.

Big picture, however, I say let’s working on who we are, and how we impact others with the totality of who we are and how we impact them.

Step one is to gain awareness of who you are and what makes you tick. Your bottom line internal self is always there, work to know and understand it and then you can make improvements if you’d like, or simply accept and be great.

What’s the How on Who?

It’s about the people. The ones you’ve learned from, those who have learned from you and the ones you haven’t met.

Do you know who you want in your life in the future? Who is the most impactful person you have yet to meet?

What’s with the crazy questions, I hear you ask!?

The Laws of Attraction say that you can bring what you want into your world with strong use of intention. Who do you want to be in your world?

Even if you don’t believe in what some have said is psuedo-science…what if it’s true that your thoughts can impact your future?

I’m in for believing.

Love The One You’re With

“Find your passion” is heard everywhere these days. It’s as if our passions are hiding on us…ollie ollie oxen free! (or is it ‘in come free’?)…come on passion show yourself so that the rest of my life will be great!

COME ON! Really?

How about going full steam ahead with your current passion? What are you really in to now? What do you want to learn more about, fuel your body with or build?

Have faith in and support your current ideas and see where they take you.

We Highly Recommend…

Recently, I went on a paid excursion in which there were a few add-on things for sale. Like wetsuits for snorkeling in the really warm waters of a tropical place.

“I really recommend it,” says the young guide who has become our friend on the microphone. She had gained our trust and so many forked over the $ rental fee for the wetsuit top and felt smarter for doing so.

That got me thinking about trust, and following people without feeling the waters. Literally. How do you become the person others trust? Is it your voice, your knowledge, your reputation? What needs to happen to damage that or make others doubt you? Can those things turn on a dime?

If you want to be trusted, or need to be trusted, what do you have to say, or do, or be? Is that enough?

As always, I encourage you to think these things thru. Use your #10minsaday
