Build Your Own Daily Routine to make create progress every day.

Food For Thought: The Progress Principle

💡  “I have no motivation today…” Hands up if you’ve ever said that to yourself or a friend during the work week whilst having tight deadlines to meet in business (or anything)❓ 

I know I have…and guess what, it’s completely normal to feel unmotivated at times, especially when we see a mountain in front us versus a hill in light of our end goal. 

The next time you feel this way, remember the following:

✅ Tiny steps are required when shooting for the moon – small wins build motivation. But, this doesn’t mean we simply tick off to-dos or answer emails and feel motivated to push on. 

✅ Rather, its about being crystal clear with our end goal and ensuring we are productively achieving measurable outcomes considering those goals.

✅ Connecting our emotions to our end goals helps us understand our purpose for achievement e.g. if you been itching to start a business, but don’t know WHY you want to do it, identifying with that emotional connection opens up a reason for us to push through when we may lack motivation

✅ Lastly, building a daily routine where we use our most productive hours to make progress on something we’ve been putting off, can help drive us through the rest of the day.

💧 When making plans, think big. When making progress, think small 💧

Food For Thought: The Carrot or The Stick

Food For Thought: The Carrot or The Stick

What do you use as motivation? The carrot (joy of reward) or the stick (fear of punishment)

Food For Thought: The Carrot or The Stick

💡  We’re all motivated in different ways. Some people may use sticks (the risk of punishment) to drive motivation; whilst others may use carrots (the satisfaction of rewards)…

The question many may ask, does the carrot and the stick really get the same result❓

✅ The short answer (in my experience both in business and personally) is “it depends” – rather, the more important matter to identify is what motivates us (and our people) in life i.e. is it risk or reward❓

✅ By connecting emotions to goals and outcomes, our actions automatically align to yield the results we see i.e. there is no need to rely on motivation to drive us any more

✅ To determine whether the carrot OR stick approach is the right one, consider the following steps:

➡️ Set a goal(s) ➡️ Connect action plans to those goal(s) ➡️ Identify the “purpose” behind achieving that goal for yourself (and your team if you’re in business)

💧 The greatest ability we are all gifted with is to get along with others and influence each other’s actions 💧

Why you need to know YOUR WHY?

Why you need to know YOUR WHY?

💡 There is a motive behind every action we take. Sometimes situations in our lives or businesses may get complicated, and in these instances, it is important for us to consider our motives for action.

When we recognize what motive drives us, we free ourselves to choose one motive over the other and this allows the very best intentions to take the lead and transform our lives.

And, so why is it important to understand our own motives

✅ We avoid situations and courses of action that conflict with what we decide is the primary mission (and purpose) of our life i.e. knowing our WHY for existence is important to live a fulfilled life and lead a compelling purpose driven business.

✅ We understand who to associate ourselves with in life and business to avoid (potential) disastrous and dangerous situations and relationships.

✅ Studies have shown the most successful people in life and business (Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Vishen Lakhiani, Warren Buffet etc) go beyond wealth creation, fancy tech widgets, having titles to their names. They are people and businesses that are built around a driving to help people and change the world. 

💎 Constant and consistent #motivation comes when we build a life and business around an idea that’s bigger than just making money. Build a life and business that makes an impact on the lives of those we serve 💎

Authentic leadership brings fulfilment, purpose and❓

💡 Authentic leadership emphasizes transparency, genuineness and honesty. Authentic leaders build authentic relationships that inspire trust and motivation.

What are then the key characteristics that true authentic leaders (such as Virgin Founder Richard Branson and Mindvalley Founder Vishen Lakhiani) have in common?

Self awareness. Authentic leaders regularly assess their strengths and weaknesses and consider how these factors affect their ability to lead.

Consistency. Authentic leaders do not change their leadership style or apply different values to different situations. Consistency promotes reliability and team members place their faith in genuine leaders.

Integrity. Authentic leaders must hold true to their values and practice what they preach within the workplace to be taken seriously and earn the respect and loyalty of their employees.

Transparency. Authentic leaders do not hide things from their team or tolerate an environment of secrecy. Instead, these leaders focus on open communication and encourage their team members to voice concerns.
