Engagement Question - Love

What part of your organization, company or business do you love the most?

There must be one part that you absolutely love - what is it? And as you answer that, take it a step further and answer two more questions for yourself:

Why love it?

and

How can you get to do more of what you love today?

Now - put it into action and bring more joy into your day. Not only will your team, clients, family and friends be excited to see you doing more of what you love, but you'll feel more energized throughout the day while having peace that you were successful at the end of it.

Clearing the Mental Clutter

Here's a productivity hack that's a quick and easy way to clear away the mental clutter by capturing your thoughts whenever they come to you - use a voice recording app on your phone.

I don't know about you, but there are plenty of times when an idea comes to me, and I don't have paper or a pen nearby. Instead, if you use the notes app on your phone, or open an email to send to yourself, you can voice your thoughts out as much as you need to, then send the email or open the notes app later when you're ready to work with it. It gives you something to start with and helps you to clear away the mental clutter, so you have more space to focus on what's going on in the present.

Styling with Confidence

When you get ready in the morning, do you just throw anything that's clean on or do you take some time to thoughtfully pull your look together? 

Do you iron pieces that would look even better when they're pressed or do you skip that part because it feels like it's an extra step? 

Does the idea of letting go of clothes that no longer really work for your body type or position make you feel excited to update your wardrobe by bringing it in alignment with where you currently are or does seem like one more thing to do?

Your clothes - your style - is the first impression that anyone gets when they see you. When you dress in a way that makes you feel good on the outside, it amplifies the goodness that’s happening on the inside. It shows that you value and respect yourself because you take care of yourself.

It's a form of self-care.

Here are five ways you can ensure you're exuding confidence with your style:

  • Choose colors that complement your complexion
  • Choose...

What Kind of Difference Will You Make?

“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” – Jane Goodall

I love this quote!

It puts into perspective how we as leaders influence our businesses and organizations every day with every interaction and every decision. This quote also reinforces the guiding principle behind one of my all-time favorite books, The Magic of Thinking Big by Dr. David J. Schwartz, which is “You are what you think you are.”

Take a moment and think about that for yourself – you are what you think you are.

What have your thoughts been?

Empowering?
Confidence building?
Solution-oriented?

Or

Defeating?
Limiting?
Doubting?

Our thoughts are powerful and shape how we see ourselves.

That perspective shapes our filter on what we see, what we say, and what we do. We all have times when we can get into our heads and not even realize that we have started down a path of self-doubt.

And could thoughts have influenced your decisions?...
