Say no to doing it all

Sometimes we think we have lost our mojo, but all we may need is to get some support and work alongside people with similar values and vision, and who are, best of all, people you like. And like a relay race it becomes a combined effort, creating many benefits at home and in your personal life. In How To Have It All I explain that having it all is not doing it all. High achievers, living fulfilled lives: 1. decide what are high value tasks and focus on these only 2. decide what doesn’t need to be done 3. decide what can be delegated 4. have effective people to delegate to 5. put systems in place to manage all of the above. We can’t do it all — it’s time to delegate or stagnate. Once you have delegated you are left with the high value tasks. Even if you are quite capable of playing the game alone it doesn’t have to be a solo effort. Working together can inspire you to achieve greater fulfillment and gain insight, momentum and energy, by: • leveraging success — pooling your smarts • getting there faster — with more hands on deck • finding friendship on the journey — working with people you like…

Look after your mojo!

Amongst all your hard work, take some time to feel the joy of your success. Do you bask in the glory when you accomplish something? Do you take time to celebrate and reward yourself? Why celebrate? When it’s all about the work we may have the achievement, but without taking a moment to celebrate we can become stressed and dull – being always focused on the busy. Similarly when it’s all play, we may have excitement and fun, but without results we can become drained and in denial about our life. Knowing that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy and all play and no work makes Jack a drained boy – Jack (and Jill!) need to look after their mojo. How to maintain your mojo? Our mojo is that special magic that keeps us moving forward and bouncing back after a setback. Sustain your mojo by creating a healthy combination of work, play and rest. Be proud and feel the joy of your accomplishments – take time to bask in the glory and be sure to say I DID IT! Create a life you truly value by reflecting on the past and being a powerful creator of…

STOP wishing!

We sometimes wish for a better life and that our current reality was different and hope that someday things might change. Problems can arise when our wishing becomes a habit of inaction that keeps us in a fantasy land. So don’t wait for past wishes to be granted – those who wish wait longer than those who decide and act. It’s fun to wish upon a star, to throw a coin into a wishing well and to blow a wish across dandelion seeds. But how often do our wishes really come true? As we cut our birthday cake each year and make a wish do those wishes get answered? Wishing reveals a desire or longing within us. But while wishing can be fun, it can also be a place to hide from the work that needs to be done to live our best life. Some even hope for a Genie to show up or wait for others to come to the rescue. It doesn’t mean we don’t wish, it just means we decide and take action to make our wishes a reality – we take personal responsibility. We decide to get things done that matter – the things we really desire….

Success needs accountability

They say if you believe you are half way there, possibly the second half is doing the work — taking action! But I think the second half is more about having a True Believer tribe to hold you accountable to do the work, to take action. I know that 2012 was my Year of Belief and 2013 my Year of Sweat and Effort. I worked hard implementing new projects and finding my tribe. In that year the focus was on doing the work, on persistence, and on getting the results by giving value to others and by getting the support from the right mentors who were able to hold me accountable to help me to deliver on my promises. Sending in my targets and intentions, and being held accountable for achieving those results, was an important step in creating my own success masterpiece. The sweat and effort was a choice — but being kept accountable by those keen to see me succeed helped the results of the hard work along. Often with my clients, I will ask them to do some pre-work — like working on their Value-based Directions before we officially start a program. Most send me their pre-work but a few don’t. You can tell someone’s commitment early in a…
