Maybe you want to move or change careers; or maybe you’re ready to have your work provide not only a paycheck, but a sense of purpose. Maybe you’re not sure what you want and need guidance and inspiration.Download this easy-to-use guide to help you get clear about where you are now and where you want to be.
The four areas that need to be addressed to reach your Peak Potential are:
Below are some inspirational and useful tools you can use in each area to help you on your path to peak potential.
How many of you check email first thing in the morning (or know someone who does)? People wake up and turn on the computer – or – just as bad – the television.
Try experimenting with yourself. Just for fun – mix it up. Try for 3 weeks – it’s only 21 days – to get up, drink 8 oz. of water, do gentle yoga, and go outside on a walk for 30 minutes every morning, and see how you feel. If you feel better, keep doing it. If not, try something else that might help.
If you can’t walk outside, walk around your home or get a treadmill, but open a window to smell the morning air.
Every day, and throughout the day, ask yourself, “am I as healthy as I’d like to be?”
If the answer is no. If you are struggling to stay awake each day, or struggling just to out of bed, and find yourself living off of coffee and bagels, and maybe carrying a little extra holiday weight even though it’s Summer, you can change this.
Our bodies are meant to be strong. We are meant to run and jump and roll around on the floor or in the hay – we’re meant to MOVE. And if something hurts when you do move, it does not mean that you should stop moving. It means you should address the reason why it is hurting.
Every day, and throughout the day, ask yourself “What does this situation require of me right now?”
Notice, the question is not “what do I need right now, it’s basically, what does the situation need.”
This allows you to focus in on whatever is going on. Assess it, and respond from a deeper, more centered place within you.
People are happy to the degree that they feel in charge of their life.
If you can sit down and create a to do list that reflects the things you want to get done (as opposed to just reacting to the emails and people that are screaming the loudest) you will feel more in control of your time.
Prioritize important tasks, but also keep your bigger goals front and center. You can download the Productivity Schedule here.
HOW are you doing what you’re doing? How do you know if you’re succeeding or not? This area asks that you MEASURE and track your progress.
You can often measure performance by asking yourself:
- Did I do what I said I was going to do?
- Did I honor my commitments?
