    7 Tips to Enhance Your Performance in Life

    The need for a balanced life is more important than ever. Too often, our work life and personal life overlaps, so enhancing your overall performance can only benefit both aspects of your life. Having a growth mindset can help you to overcome any challenges you may face, both professionally and personally. By following these seven tips to enhance your performance in life, you'll be more likely to maximize your potential and reach your goals in the timeframe you desire. Are you ready to start implementing changes into your life that will increase your performance and help you grow as an individual? If yes, then keep listening! 1. Set Crystal Clear Goals As a business owner, you may be constantly thinking about setting your team up for success, but don't forget about yourself! Set yourself up for success by setting clear goals. You set your annual goals and review your progress every month to help you know where you are against your annual goals, so you can course correct, if you are off track at all. If you're not sure where to start, you can start by setting longer term, larger goals and breaking them down into smaller and more manageable goals. For example, you can set a goal of running a half marathon in the next year. Break that goal down weekly by starting small and running 3 miles a week, then build up slowly until you're running more and more each week. By the time the half marathon comes along, it'll be a breeze for you to do! Another example is, instead of setting a goal to “increase revenue for the year,” set a specific goal with an actual number, such as “increase revenue to $120,000 by year end.” Then break that down into smaller goals by month, such as “hit $10k in revenue per month.” Once you have a more concrete goal, you can plan out the actual steps it takes to achieve that goal! 2. Practice Effective Communication Effective communication is so important in both our personal lives as well as in business. Practicing empathy goes hand-in-hand with communicating effectively. Whether you're speaking with a loved one or a co-worker, approach the conversation with empathy and an open ear. Start by trying to see where they're coming from, and use phrases to describe how you feel, not what you don't like about the other person's actions. Listening well is a very important skill that needs to consistently be practiced to be refined. It can be easy to hear something and react immediately. It's much harder to listen, take time to reflect on what someone says, and then respond with intention and kindness. With practice, it can become second nature and enhance many different types of relationships in your life! 3. Set Aside Time to Rest and Recharge Performing at your potential doesn't mean going nonstop 24/7—it means having the self-awareness to know your body and its limits. Take the time to rest and recharge. Get enough sleep, and also take moments throughout the day to give your brain a break. Whether that means taking a walk around the block or stepping away from your laptop for a coffee break, taking breaks will actually increase productivity. When you do take a break, work to clear your mind of anything work-related. Do something fun, meditate, get some fresh air outdoors. If you have someone who can take a break with you, it helps to have that accountability and be able to interface with someone face-to-face throughout the day. On a larger scale, plan out vacations for yourself! It could be a road trip, a staycation—nothing necessarily extravagant. Taking time away will help recharge your batteries, so you can come back ready to tackle whatever comes your way! 4. Define Your Top Three Tasks Each Day Do you ever find yourself continuing to add to your to-do list throughout the day until it's long and overwhelming? It's not realistic to think we can get through everything on our list. Start your day by defining the top three tasks you want to accomplish for that day. It could be an errand you've been putting off, a proposal you've been needing to send, five calls to prospective clients, or a dish you've been wanting to cook. Stick to those three first—when you get through them, then great! Either give yourself time to rest or knock out more to-do's that are next on the priority task list. You'll feel more productive getting those extra activities done, and at the very least, you'll know that you've accomplished the three top tasks on your list. 5. Practice Gratitude Each Day Gratitude is a powerful emotion. When we express gratitude, our brains actually release dopamine and serotonin, which are the neurotransmitters responsible for making us feel good. Expressing gratitude can lead to better health and bring us happiness. When life gets overwhelming, it can be hard to consistently practice gratitude. Which is why it is what it is—a practice. Some people start their day with something they're grateful for, and others prefer to end their day reflecting on what they were grateful for that day. Whichever one you prefer, write it down and speak it aloud. If you have a partner you can do this with, even better, as you can remind yourself to reflect on the day and ask each other what you're grateful for. Practicing gratitude can help you put things into an even more positive perspective. As hard as things may seem, they could be worse. There is always something to be grateful for. You just need to be intentional about acknowledging it. To download my complimentary Gratitude Journal Exercise, go to https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/gratitude/. I hope you get value and insight from using this Gratitude Journal exercise. 6. Revisit Your Definition of Success Often As you go through different stages of life, your definition of success will change. Perhaps at a younger age, monetary success was your only definition of success. But as you get older, that definition may change as spending time with loved ones becomes more important to prioritize. Whatever your definition is, revisit it often to make sure it aligns with your current values and goals. By taking time to think through how you define success, you can check how you're progressing towards your goals or if you need to pivot. Keep in mind that “success” is subjective–someone else's definition of success is not your own. It will look differently to everyone, and it's important to build your own definition of it. 7. Get Enough Sleep Each Day Never underestimate the power of getting enough sleep each day. Being well-rested enhances your performance in many ways. It can improve concentration and productivity, and leads to a healthier lifestyle, and also decrease long-term illnesses. For optimal performance, aim for 8-9 hours of sleep per night. Make it work around your schedule! If you tend to work better at night, stay up a little later and sleep in a bit later. If you're an early riser, get to sleep earlier, so you can wake up earlier. Your body will thank you for it and you will be more focused and productive. By incorporating these 7 tips into your daily life, you'll enhance your performance in life in many ways. To recap, set clear goals, practice effective communication, set aside time to rest and recharge, define your top three tasks each day, practice gratitude daily, revisit your definition of success, and get enough sleep every night. Not only will you be more successful, you'll also be able to enjoy the benefits of a truly balanced life!

Turns out, when it comes to gathering some wisdom about improving our perspectives… children can be our greatest teachers. In this interview, Hal shares many terrific tips about how we can often change the future by simply changing a few words in our standard responses to greetings like “How are you?” Or, how we can put a spring in our step and the steps of others with simple conversation openers like, “You know what I like best about you?” This episode gets to the heart of the quiet aspect of the Conspiracy of Goodness of our times by pointing out the characteristics most of us admire and love in others.

    5 Tips to Trick Your Mind into Overcoming Procrastination

    The Business Accelerator: Accountability | Productivity

    Play Episode Listen Later Sep 22, 2022 8:58


    Mind over matter, right? Sometimes, that's easier said than done. When we're faced with a laundry list of to-dos and with not enough time in the day, it can be easier to distract ourselves and push things off to the next day. And when more items get added to our list, it becomes overwhelming, and we continue to procrastinate even more. A vicious cycle, but one that can be overcome. In order to overcome procrastination, we have to first understand it. Start with perspective—procrastination may not be something you can ever fully get rid of. And that's okay. When you accept that it may be a part of your process, that's the first step to figuring out how to work through it. The reason why many of us procrastinate is because we choose to do something that's more immediately gratifying than something we know we need to do, but it is probably not as fun. Procrastination is an emotional reaction, and we put off necessary tasks in order to stay happy in the moment. So, how do you overcome procrastination and move on to a mode of productivity? Here are 5 tips to trick your mind into overcoming procrastination. 1. Make It Super Easy to Get Started on Your Task The hardest part of completing some tasks is getting started. Sometimes thinking about a task can snowball into feeling overwhelmed because of what the task entails. If you're going into the task with a dreaded mindset, that will make it harder to get started. It's much easier to get started if you don't think about it as much. For example, if the task at hand is getting out of bed to go work out, you might find yourself thinking about how you have to find your workout clothes, then you need to make sure you have clean socks, and by the time you work out, half your day will be over—before you know it, you've convinced yourself to stay in bed. Set things up ahead of time so it's super easy to get started. If your goal is to work out in the morning, make sure your clothes are laid out the night before. Then, when you wake up, just get out of bed. Don't spend time thinking about whether or not you want to work out, or you'll fall into the same pattern as before. Just get up, get dressed, and get out. If the task at hand is making prospecting calls to potential clients, start with making a list of people to call and the script you will use for what to say. Once you have that list and script, set it next to your laptop (or open it in a notes document on your laptop) the day before you even start the task. Now that your prospect list and script are ready and waiting, all you need to do is pick up the phone and call! You can also open up any CRM you use ahead of time, so you're ready to take notes on your calls. The less you need to think about it in the moment, the easier it will be to get started. 2. Remove All Distractions Yes, I'm talking about your phone. That's probably one of the biggest distractions from doing our work. Want to know a super-secret strategy for not being distracted by your phone? Either flip your phone over, turn it off, or remove it completely from the room. The simple act of not having your screen in front of you, with notifications popping up and noises sounding, can make a huge difference in making sure you are able to focus on the task at hand. If you wear a watch with notifications, the same suggestions apply to that. Have a browser window open with dozens of tabs but need to get started on that blog post? Separate out one browser window and just focus on getting your writing done, so you're not tempted to see the other sites you were browsing. The bottom line is, simplify your environment and pare it down as much as possible to remove any and all distractions, as much as possible. 3. Think of a Reward for Completing the Task If there's no light at the end of the tunnel, of course you'll want to push it off! Think of a reward for when you complete the task. Maybe it's a drink at your favorite smoothie place, or tacos for dinner. It could be something larger, like that shirt you've been eyeing. Having a reward gives you not only something to look forward to, but something to work towards. When you think about how much you're going to enjoy the reward once you complete the task at hand, it can help you make better decisions about getting started. Your reward could even be the completion of the task, especially if it's something you've been putting off for a while. Think about the relief you'll feel once it's done! 4. Set a Timer to Work on the Task Sometimes it's not knowing how long a task is going to take that can deter you from even starting. What if it takes longer than you think? What if that keeps you from doing other, more important activities? Might as well push it to tomorrow. Set a timer so you know exactly how long you'll be working on the task. Start with 25 minutes and see how you feel, and if you're in a good flow, set the timer for another 25 minutes. That way, there is an end in sight. The Pomodoro timer is a good one to check out to keep you focused on the task at hand for 25 minutes at a time before reminding you to take a break. If you have a deadline the next day and absolutely need to finish today, try setting timers with breaks in between, if you can. That way, you're at least breaking up your day, so there is an end in sight after each time the timer goes off. You can even make a game out of it. Set a timer first for 10 minutes. If you “beat” that timer, try setting another timer for 15 minutes. Keep going for as long as you can, and before you know it, you'll be done! 5. Give Yourself Permission to Try Again the Next Day Some things are okay being put off, and it's okay to give yourself permission to try again the next day. It's easy to get into a cycle of feeling disappointed or discouraged because you didn't get something done that you meant to get done. But if you forgive yourself and give yourself permission to try again, you'll approach it with a better mindset the next day. You'll have less negative feelings around what you're putting off, and you'll be less likely to procrastinate again with self-forgiveness. Once you understand why you procrastinate and accept it as a natural part of the process, you can figure out the best way to deal with it. By practicing these 5 tips, you can go forth and conquer procrastination! To summarize, make it super easy to get started, remove all distractions, reward yourself for completing a task, set a timer so there's an end in sight, and if you don't get to something, give yourself permission to try again the next day (just don't make a habit of this).

    Mind over matter, right? Sometimes, that's easier said than done. When we're faced with a laundry list of to-dos and with not enough time in the day, it can be easier to distract ourselves and push things off to the next day. And when more items get added to our list, it becomes overwhelming, and we continue to procrastinate even more. A vicious cycle, but one that can be overcome. In order to overcome procrastination, we have to first understand it. Start with perspective—procrastination may not be something you can ever fully get rid of. And that's okay. When you accept that it may be a part of your process, that's the first step to figuring out how to work through it. The reason why many of us procrastinate is because we choose to do something that's more immediately gratifying than something we know we need to do, but it is probably not as fun. Procrastination is an emotional reaction, and we put off necessary tasks in order to stay happy in the moment. So, how do you overcome procrastination and move on to a mode of productivity? Here are 5 tips to trick your mind into overcoming procrastination. 1. Make It Super Easy to Get Started on Your Task The hardest part of completing some tasks is getting started. Sometimes thinking about a task can snowball into feeling overwhelmed because of what the task entails. If you're going into the task with a dreaded mindset, that will make it harder to get started. It's much easier to get started if you don't think about it as much. For example, if the task at hand is getting out of bed to go work out, you might find yourself thinking about how you have to find your workout clothes, then you need to make sure you have clean socks, and by the time you work out, half your day will be over—before you know it, you've convinced yourself to stay in bed. Set things up ahead of time so it's super easy to get started. If your goal is to work out in the morning, make sure your clothes are laid out the night before. Then, when you wake up, just get out of bed. Don't spend time thinking about whether or not you want to work out, or you'll fall into the same pattern as before. Just get up, get dressed, and get out. If the task at hand is making prospecting calls to potential clients, start with making a list of people to call and the script you will use for what to say. Once you have that list and script, set it next to your laptop (or open it in a notes document on your laptop) the day before you even start the task. Now that your prospect list and script are ready and waiting, all you need to do is pick up the phone and call! You can also open up any CRM you use ahead of time, so you're ready to take notes on your calls. The less you need to think about it in the moment, the easier it will be to get started. 2. Remove All Distractions Yes, I'm talking about your phone. That's probably one of the biggest distractions from doing our work. Want to know a super-secret strategy for not being distracted by your phone? Either flip your phone over, turn it off, or remove it completely from the room. The simple act of not having your screen in front of you, with notifications popping up and noises sounding, can make a huge difference in making sure you are able to focus on the task at hand. If you wear a watch with notifications, the same suggestions apply to that. Have a browser window open with dozens of tabs but need to get started on that blog post? Separate out one browser window and just focus on getting your writing done, so you're not tempted to see the other sites you were browsing. The bottom line is, simplify your environment and pare it down as much as possible to remove any and all distractions, as much as possible. 3. Think of a Reward for Completing the Task If there's no light at the end of the tunnel, of course you'll want to push it off! Think of a reward for when you complete the task. Maybe it's a drink at your favorite smoothie place, or tacos for dinner. It could be something larger, like that shirt you've been eyeing. Having a reward gives you not only something to look forward to, but something to work towards. When you think about how much you're going to enjoy the reward once you complete the task at hand, it can help you make better decisions about getting started. Your reward could even be the completion of the task, especially if it's something you've been putting off for a while. Think about the relief you'll feel once it's done! 4. Set a Timer to Work on the Task Sometimes it's not knowing how long a task is going to take that can deter you from even starting. What if it takes longer than you think? What if that keeps you from doing other, more important activities? Might as well push it to tomorrow. Set a timer so you know exactly how long you'll be working on the task. Start with 25 minutes and see how you feel, and if you're in a good flow, set the timer for another 25 minutes. That way, there is an end in sight. The Pomodoro timer is a good one to check out to keep you focused on the task at hand for 25 minutes at a time before reminding you to take a break. If you have a deadline the next day and absolutely need to finish today, try setting timers with breaks in between, if you can. That way, you're at least breaking up your day, so there is an end in sight after each time the timer goes off. You can even make a game out of it. Set a timer first for 10 minutes. If you “beat” that timer, try setting another timer for 15 minutes. Keep going for as long as you can, and before you know it, you'll be done! 5. Give Yourself Permission to Try Again the Next Day Some things are okay being put off, and it's okay to give yourself permission to try again the next day. It's easy to get into a cycle of feeling disappointed or discouraged because you didn't get something done that you meant to get done. But if you forgive yourself and give yourself permission to try again, you'll approach it with a better mindset the next day. You'll have less negative feelings around what you're putting off, and you'll be less likely to procrastinate again with self-forgiveness. Once you understand why you procrastinate and accept it as a natural part of the process, you can figure out the best way to deal with it. By practicing these 5 tips, you can go forth and conquer procrastination! To summarize, make it super easy to get started, remove all distractions, reward yourself for completing a task, set a timer so there's an end in sight, and if you don't get to something, give yourself permission to try again the next day (just don't make a habit of this).

    I think you will find my guest to have valuable insight about helping business owners hire, train, and retain high-value staff to help you take your business to the next level. Quality Assurance Manager at Coca-Cola turned entrepreneur, Denise Cagan, of DCA Virtual Business Support, my guest today. She has owned one business or another for 20+ years. Denise was running a virtual workforce before the pandemic forced companies to do so. Listen in to hear what she has to say about sustainability of staff in the hybrid and remote business models. Here are a few questions I asked Denise Cagan that you will benefit from by listening to her interview: • When hiring support team members, you always want to find the A Players to be on your team, of course. In order to find the best people, what exactly would a game plan for success look like? • What do you need to do differently, if anything, in the interview process for a virtual person and a person who would be physically in your office, or a person who might be virtual and in the office? • What tools have you found helpful to manage your remote team? (How do you hold them accountable and know exactly what they are doing for you?) • What technology recommendations do you have for helping business owners and their staff be as effective and efficient as possible as a team? • Now that you've hired your talent, what is the best way to train them, so you only have to teach them something once (ex. Having them create/update a procedures manual)?

    The Business Accelerator: Accountability | Productivity

    There is an entire industry dedicated to fighting cyberattacks and making sure other companies have solid cybersecurity systems in place. Cyberattacks have become increasingly common, and typically involve some sort of breach of information systems to steal sensitive data or deny users' access to their data. Many attacks have a financial motive, so it's crucial to protect your company against the possibility of a breach. It only takes one attack to bring down a network and do serious damage to your business, but if you take the necessary steps to protect your systems, you have a much better chance of thwarting any hackers' attempts. There are several different types of cybersecurity threats, and it's important to know what they are so you can understand how to fight them. 1. Malware Malware, or malicious software, is an umbrella term for all sorts of programs designed to hack, disrupt, or damage a device. Malware breaches the security of your device and can steal data or control your device. It works by tricking users into clicking something they shouldn't click, which then downloads malicious code into their system. Types of malware can include viruses, trojans, spyware, bots, bugs, and ransomware. You can prevent malware by using tools that detect a breach early, such as software that scans your network, and removes any malware it detects. Never click on a link you aren't exactly sure where it came from. Even emails that may seem okay and legit, are not. Malwarebytes offers a free and an affordable paid version to help with possible malware issues on your computer. Check it out by going to https://www.malwarebytes.com/. I personally use this software on my computer and on my phone. 2. Ransomware Ransomware is exactly what it sounds like—your data is taken hostage until you pay a ransom to get it back. It can be considered a type of malware, and is spread throughout your network through various ways, such as phishing emails that have malicious code attached, or drive-by downloading, which is when a user visits a site that's infected with malware and unknowingly downloads it to their device. Once ransomware has infected a device, it encrypts the user or company's data so they can't access any of their files. It spreads quickly across the database and servers, and the attacker holds a private key needed to decrypt the files until the ransom is paid. There may be some situation in which the attacker refuses to release the private key, so it's important to back up your data regularly, along with implementing other tips to increase your cybersecurity. 3. Phishing Phishing is when cybercriminals pose as legitimate companies and send users emails, phone calls, or text messages to get sensitive information out of them. A common example of phishing is a password reset email, where the attacker pretends that your account is under a security threat and asks you to reset your password. When you click the link provided in their email, it goes to a website that isn't legitimate, and your new password gets saved. They can then change it on their end and use the information to log into your account. Other types of phishing emails to be suspicious of include notifications of winning a prize, urgent requests, or emails from people you don't know with attachments you don't recognize. 4. Man-in-the-Middle Attacks Using free public Wi-Fi is a good way to leave yourself vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack. Generally speaking, a MITM attack is when the attacker positions themselves between the user and platform the user is trying to visit, and essentially intercepts and hijacks that connection. When the victim gets on the free Wi-Fi network, it allows the attacker to have full visibility and access into their online activities. The best thing to do if you can't get onto a secure Wi-Fi network in public is to use your phone as a temporary hotspot. 5. DoS and DDoS A Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack works by shutting down web servers and essentially denying users access to it. It does this by flooding a server with traffic until it crashes, rendering it unavailable and unusable. Some signs of a DoS attack include slower network performance or a loss of connectivity to your site. A DoS attack uses a single system to launch the attack. A Distributed-Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack, on the other hand, uses multiple systems to attack a single system. Running tests regularly on your internal systems can help expose any vulnerabilities, so you can protect against future DoS or DDoS attacks. Implementing things like anti-virus software, firewalls, VPNs, employee training and cybersecurity solutions can help protect your company against cybersecurity threats such as malware, ransomware, phishing, MITM, DoS, DDoS and more. By understanding what dangers these different threats pose, you can be proactive about preparing your systems to recognize and remove the threats as soon as they're detected.

It only takes one attack to bring down a network and do serious damage to your business, but if you take the necessary steps to protect your systems, you have a much better chance of thwarting any hackers' attempts. There are several different types of cybersecurity threats, and it's important to know what they are so you can understand how to fight them. 1. Malware Malware, or malicious software, is an umbrella term for all sorts of programs designed to hack, disrupt, or damage a device. Malware breaches the security of your device and can steal data or control your device. It works by tricking users into clicking something they shouldn't click, which then downloads malicious code into their system. Types of malware can include viruses, trojans, spyware, bots, bugs, and ransomware. You can prevent malware by using tools that detect a breach early, such as software that scans your network, and removes any malware it detects. Never click on a link you aren't exactly sure where it came from. Even emails that may seem okay and legit, are not. Malwarebytes offers a free and an affordable paid version to help with possible malware issues on your computer. Check it out by going to https://www.malwarebytes.com/. I personally use this software on my computer and on my phone. 2. Ransomware Ransomware is exactly what it sounds like—your data is taken hostage until you pay a ransom to get it back. It can be considered a type of malware, and is spread throughout your network through various ways, such as phishing emails that have malicious code attached, or drive-by downloading, which is when a user visits a site that's infected with malware and unknowingly downloads it to their device. Once ransomware has infected a device, it encrypts the user or company's data so they can't access any of their files. It spreads quickly across the database and servers, and the attacker holds a private key needed to decrypt the files until the ransom is paid. There may be some situation in which the attacker refuses to release the private key, so it's important to back up your data regularly, along with implementing other tips to increase your cybersecurity. 3. Phishing Phishing is when cybercriminals pose as legitimate companies and send users emails, phone calls, or text messages to get sensitive information out of them. A common example of phishing is a password reset email, where the attacker pretends that your account is under a security threat and asks you to reset your password. When you click the link provided in their email, it goes to a website that isn't legitimate, and your new password gets saved. They can then change it on their end and use the information to log into your account. Other types of phishing emails to be suspicious of include notifications of winning a prize, urgent requests, or emails from people you don't know with attachments you don't recognize. 4. Man-in-the-Middle Attacks Using free public Wi-Fi is a good way to leave yourself vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack. Generally speaking, a MITM attack is when the attacker positions themselves between the user and platform the user is trying to visit, and essentially intercepts and hijacks that connection. When the victim gets on the free Wi-Fi network, it allows the attacker to have full visibility and access into their online activities. The best thing to do if you can't get onto a secure Wi-Fi network in public is to use your phone as a temporary hotspot. 5. DoS and DDoS A Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack works by shutting down web servers and essentially denying users access to it. It does this by flooding a server with traffic until it crashes, rendering it unavailable and unusable. Some signs of a DoS attack include slower network performance or a loss of connectivity to your site. A DoS attack uses a single system to launch the attack. A Distributed-Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack, on the other hand, uses multiple systems to attack a single system. Running tests regularly on your internal systems can help expose any vulnerabilities, so you can protect against future DoS or DDoS attacks. Implementing things like anti-virus software, firewalls, VPNs, employee training and cybersecurity solutions can help protect your company against cybersecurity threats such as malware, ransomware, phishing, MITM, DoS, DDoS and more. By understanding what dangers these different threats pose, you can be proactive about preparing your systems to recognize and remove the threats as soon as they're detected.

    Native Digital + Native Analog: Unlocking Gen Z
    Smart Leadership, with Mark Miller, VP of High-Performance Leadership at Chick-fil-A and Multi-Best-Selling Author

    Native Digital + Native Analog: Unlocking Gen Z

    Chick-fil-A is renowned for an amazing customer + employee experience, but what type of intentional leadership does it take to earn that reputation? To answer that question for us, I've invited on Mark Miller, VP of High-Performance Leadership at https://www.chick-fil-a.com/about/who-we-are (Chick-fil-A), and the author of over 8 books on leadership; the most recent being Smart Leadership: Four Simple Choices to Scale Your Impact We discussed aspects of his book on today's show. Mark has spent a large part of his life helping leaders build skills to enable them to reach their highest performance level. In his words, "poor leadership knows no level, neither does great leadership". Mark On Being an Accidental Author.Interestingly, while working at https://www.chick-fil-a.com/about/who-we-are (Chick-fil-A), Mark stumbled into becoming an author. “My team and I were trying to figure out how to accelerate leadership development. This is because overexerting the existing leaders would eventually have been disastrous. We worked on this project for a couple of years and just when we were rounding off, we had a crisis of confidence. At this point, we realized that a professional had to be brought on board. I took what we'd put together and showed it to Ken Blanchard, bestselling author and a friend of mine, asking for his input. The first thing he said was "this has got to be a book". Of course, I brushed off his comment but some years later, I went back, this time asking him to mentor me. That's how I published my first book.” Mark On Gen Z's Servant Leadership Misinterpretation One of my questions for Mark was about servant leadership. As a native digital, what I've experienced is that some young leaders will exchange courage for “servantheartedness.” Mark's response was fascinating. He said that real leaders must have the basics covered: Courage, strong decision-making, and the ability to drive towards a vision. But balancing that, servant leaders must also foster humility. According to Mark, servant leadership is the highest form of leadership, but presently, there is a general misconception that it is inferior to traditional leadership. We must realize that servant leaders are skillful, service-oriented, and resilient. They put others first, they are not weak, and they value relationships and results. "Leaders should be willing to work with their team and team members should work with their leaders" ~ Mark Miller. Mark On Performance Reviews and CoachingThe success of every employee is the responsibility of the leaders. While they dedicate their lives to ensuring that the organization grows, the leaders and bosses should put measures in place to ensure employee growth. Mark says it is very important to treat people as individuals, watch out for their unique personalities and treat them accordingly. Performance reviews are one of the ways to monitor employee progress but organizing periodic coaching sessions and calibrating from time to time would have an effective result on the leaders, employees, clients, and organization. "Leadership at the end of the day is about people," he says. Speaking On the Defining Leadership Moment of His Career:Mark learned from one of his supervisors that "your capacity to grow, determines your capacity to lead". To continuously add value to those around you, grow your income and make a difference, commit to love long learning. This doesn't guarantee automatic promotion. He said, "we only control our readiness, the organization controls our opportunity". "If you are thinking about yourself, you want to walk into a room and take charge, if you are thinking about others, you want to walk into a room and say to yourself, how can I add value?" ~ Mark Miller.About Mark Miller Order Mark's newest book: https://www.amazon.com/Smart-Leadership-Simple-Choices-Impact/dp/1953295754 (Smart Leadership) Mark Miller is a leader concerned with adding value.

    Having dreams and goals is an incredible thing; it keeps you motivated and gives you purpose. But without a well-thought-out plan, a goal rarely executes well. Planning is a fantastic way of staying focused on your goals and achieving personal greatness. Vision boards are helpful and inspirational tools that make your dreams and goals feel more accessible. These boards can be a fun art project that maximizes your motivation and pushes you to try harder. Vision boards are like a sacred visual space that displays all things you want to achieve in life. Therefore, it helps you stay on the right path. Let's discuss how you can set a goal-setting vision board and effectively use it as a visualization tool. What is a Vision Board? A vision board is a physical reminder of things you want to achieve in a specific timeframe. Typically, vision board ideas include photos, words, and virtually any other visual displays. These boards act as a visualization tool to help you hit your personal, professional, and material goals. By placing visual representations of your dreams in one space, you can look at them daily and even activate the Law of Attraction. How Do You Use a Goal Board, Dream Board, and Inspiration Board to Set Goals? Vision boards are the perfect tool to picture your dreams and goals. Goal boards, dream boards, motivational boards, inspiration boards, and various other different types of vision boards serve the same purpose: to inspire, to motivate, to help you achieve great heights. Vision boards help you set goals in two ways: • Tap into your receptivity and imagine all that could and can be. These visions include color, feelings, words, or sensations • Unlock your space of intention and find your deepest desires by engaging in expressing, exploring, and representing them What is the Difference Between a Vision Board and Goals? We are all guilty of making extensive lists of goals and resolutions. We all create plans, set goals, and make resolutions- but more often than not, our goals may not always be realistic, and our plans and resolutions fall apart. Whenever our goal doesn't go the way we planned, we feel defeated, hopeless, and unworthy. And then the next year comes around the corner, and we repeat the cycle. Vision boards help you break the cycle. Vision boards include the big picture of the years ahead and inspire you to take action, so you will be on the path to achieving and enjoying what you put on your vision board at some time in the future. These boards are collages of images and words representing your dreams and goals, and serve as inspiration. As humans, we are more likely to remember something if we retrieve or recount it multiple times. Thus, repeatedly looking at your vision board helps you achieve your goals and dreams. Here are some reasons you would want to create a vision board and keep it current: • Ensures you don't get sidetracked • It helps you stay intentional about transforming your mindset • Keeps you from feeling overwhelmed • Aids you in making the right decisions that moves you closer to the achievement of your goals What Materials Do You Need to Create a Vision Board? Here's a vision board checklist you'll need to create your vision board: • Magazine cutouts, catalogs, postcards, old photos, and any symbol that represents your objectives to help create a collage of images • A large corkboard or posterboard • Scissors • Glue, pins, thumbtacks, or magnets • Ribbons, flowers, leaves, stickers, or stones • Crayons, markers, or colored pencils • Motivational quotations, poems, or affirmations that match your vision board ideas 3 Category Ideas for a Vision Board Let's discuss the top 3 vision board ideas to set goals: 1. Home and Family Home and family vision boards include your family plans, values, and upcoming adventures. You may even incorporate your desires to reinforce your relationship with your child (children), partner, parents, or grandkids. 2. Dream Job and Career Goals Since most of us are working to create our dream career or business, it's wise to create a dream job or career goal vision board. These boards are typically text-heavy and include career and business affirmations. 3. Health, Wellness, and Self Care Ask yourself: How do I want to look, be, and feel in the coming year, and in the future? Answering this question will help you identify your health goals. Perhaps you want to feel stronger or get more flexible. Either way, include relevant images of the muscle group you want to target, or a yoga position you would like to be able to do. In addition, add self-love affirmations and motivational quotes. What Goals Should You Include in a Vision Board? The purpose of a vision board is to inspire and motivate you- it helps you breathe life to your goals. Thus, you can include anything that drives you to achieve your objectives. Typically, vision boards help you achieve your goals in the following areas: • Career or Business • Finances • Home • Health, including emotional, physical, and mental • Relationships • Personal growth, such as spirituality and education Let me walk you through a simple step-by-step guide to creating the perfect vision board: 1. Create an extensive list of goals you want to achieve in the coming years 2. Collect old magazines and catalogs with attractive pictures that inspire you 3. Find pictures online or lying around your home that represents your goals 4. Get rid of all distractions and get in the right frame of mind 5. Create a comfortable and welcoming environment by clearing your space and putting on some relaxing music 6. Make a vibrant and inspiring collage using your photos 7. Add motivational affirmation words that motivate you to strive for your dreams 8. Take time every week to contemplate your vision board will help you How Does a Vision Board Serve as a Visualization Tool to Help You Achieve Your Goals and Dreams? Vision boards are the perfect visualization tools that represent your ideal business and ideal life. These boards allow you to feel good about setting goals via pictures, images, and words. This way, you can strengthen and stimulate your emotions, feel good about your future, and boost your chances of achieving all of your goals. How Does a Great Vision Board Activate the Law of Attraction to Help You Reach Life Goals or a Specific Goal? Poster boards are inspirational collages of pictures and words that help engage your subconscious mind. These boards are a powerful way of activating the Law of Attraction to make your desires more attainable. Here's how you can activate the Law of Attraction to make your life and personal goals a reality: • Look, hold, and imagine your vision every night • Add affirmation statements to your vision board to feel good, full, and confident • Wake up early and go through your vision board to ensure your goals and desires are at the top of your mind • Carry a recipe of words describing who and where you want to be • During hard times, look at your past achievements and celebrate them The Bottom Line As time passes and you start achieving your goals, don't remove the images that represent the goals you've already achieved. Achievement of your professional and personal goals in your vision board is a powerful visual reminder of the fantastic things you've attracted in your life. Don't stop there, instead keep updating your vision board to transform your dreams into a reality.

These boards can be a fun art project that maximizes your motivation and pushes you to try harder. Vision boards are like a sacred visual space that displays all things you want to achieve in life. Therefore, it helps you stay on the right path. Let's discuss how you can set a goal-setting vision board and effectively use it as a visualization tool. What is a Vision Board? A vision board is a physical reminder of things you want to achieve in a specific timeframe. Typically, vision board ideas include photos, words, and virtually any other visual displays. These boards act as a visualization tool to help you hit your personal, professional, and material goals. By placing visual representations of your dreams in one space, you can look at them daily and even activate the Law of Attraction. How Do You Use a Goal Board, Dream Board, and Inspiration Board to Set Goals? Vision boards are the perfect tool to picture your dreams and goals. Goal boards, dream boards, motivational boards, inspiration boards, and various other different types of vision boards serve the same purpose: to inspire, to motivate, to help you achieve great heights. Vision boards help you set goals in two ways: • Tap into your receptivity and imagine all that could and can be. These visions include color, feelings, words, or sensations • Unlock your space of intention and find your deepest desires by engaging in expressing, exploring, and representing them What is the Difference Between a Vision Board and Goals?

We all create plans, set goals, and make resolutions- but more often than not, our goals may not always be realistic, and our plans and resolutions fall apart. Whenever our goal doesn't go the way we planned, we feel defeated, hopeless, and unworthy. And then the next year comes around the corner, and we repeat the cycle. Vision boards help you break the cycle. Vision boards include the big picture of the years ahead and inspire you to take action, so you will be on the path to achieving and enjoying what you put on your vision board at some time in the future. These boards are collages of images and words representing your dreams and goals, and serve as inspiration.
