From the trenches, and at 33k feet up in the air, 5 simple places to look for creating bigger impact while feeling great. Ready? Coming in hot...
Be present. Right here, right now. Breathe. Consider this moment. And this one. Appreciate it. It's now. Not one minute ago, not a minute from now... Now. Your brain (and their's) will thank you for it.
Focus your attention intentionally. Are you focused on yourself? On the person you're with? Or on the intended outcome? All three have great value. Your job as a leader is to determine which area of focus is best, and when. Listen. (Presence helps here.)
While we're talking about focus... Are you focusing on what you want or don't want? Are you focused on what you're going to get or what you're going to give? Are you focused on how hard and horrible this "thing" is, or how grateful your are for the opportunity to grow? Where's your focus? Shift this, and ripple.
Set intentions. What do you want today to look like? How do you want to feel? How do you want others to experience you? How do you want to show up? Intend this, it may not happen perfectly, but it will certainly set you up for stronger success.
Show up. This is your life, you're leading it, no one else will do it for you. This is your day, your conversation, your meeting, your desire to step into and SHOW UP. Go.
Pick one, pick all. Integrate and enjoy. Let me know how it goes.
