As Formula 1 Grand Prix comes to an end, they will reflect back on the ups and down of the season. Sebastian Vettel wins the championship I smiled, he always kept trying even though he had never once seemed to be a contender for the Driver championship. By taking this race as it was nother opportunity and never giving up he won.
For those who know me you will know that I consider my life to be a bit like F1, a mum of teenagers, a new business etc. can result in the odd crash/clash. Like F1 drivers I take breaks and create opportunities to celebrate.
This week I took some time out away from the track of life and did some planning and reflecting. I am lucky to have surrounded myself with people who do listen to me, that help me understand what I need for maximum performance.
it has resulted in 81% increase in sales this quarter and we now have even more stretching and exciting goals ahead.
Who is listening to you? Well I am? and of course you can educate yourself to listen to you more effectively.
It is crucial to every high performer to have breaks, for them to have people they trust to pour out some thoughts to allow room for some new thinking to come in.A space to reflect and learn without judgement, criticism. Someone kindly shared with me this week that their head was like an overcrowded commuter train where all the ideas and energy are being pushed out the windows.
Can you relate to that ?
Is your head is feeling like it is reaching maximum capacity?
Would you like a slick first class electric train that peacefully, efficiently glides into and out of each station knowing exactly what needs to happen next and where it is heading.
Where passengers excitedly jump on and enjoy the journey with you, bringing their friends along the way. ( none of that begging at the station please come and play on my train for you the slick electric train)
No none of that!! people have heard about your wonderful train and they are on the platform just waiting for their turn.
Want to know how to be a slick electric train try these questions.
Only do this if it appeals to you to:
- work harder and smarter not longer
- increase your capacity to earn more
- grow your company organically
- get better balance between work and home
- reduce stress and improve health and well-being
- love working
- live with confidence and not fear of failure
- have no guilt
Then it is all in the questions you ask others and yourself.
- Make no assumptions, ask questions to check out what you really want and mean.
- Ask more questions of those around you. Gaining complete understanding.
Here have a go:
What would you like to have happen?
What needs to happen for that to happen?
Anything else about that?
Then what happens?
Do let me know which kind of train you are right now and what happens next?
Thanks for Listening
