“In this situation, I make it about me and take a stand for the people I serve: “I only have X number of spaces available in my practice, so I reserve them for clients for whom I can create the most impact. And I don’t feel like I’m the best match/choice/resource for you.” And whenever I can refer them to someone that would be a good fit, I absolutely make that connection.”
“Before I go to bed, I write down the five most critical tasks to be done the next day. In the morning, before checking email or making calls, I do those (and only those) tasks until they are complete, or until I hit a logical stopping point (e.g., when the next step is reliant upon external input or resources). Having accomplished this, I have much more energy to tackle the remaining list. Success breeds success.”
On today’s episode, David and I talk about some really practical ways to:
- Shift our beliefs to fulfil our potential;
- Approach problem solving in a juicy new way;
- and How we can quit being hardholics, already. Not everything has to be difficult to be worthwhile.
Some of my favourite bits of the show include:
- Paranoia vs. Proanoia (say what?)
- How to shift the sucky belief that if success is easeful, the outcome can’t be any good
- An instant 3-step process to handle a challenging situation (it works!)
Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #152 — The Science of an Art? Much has been written about the science of leadership. And I’ve written, spoken, and ranted about it quite a bit. I am not at a loss for opinions on and theories about it, myself. AND … what excites me most is actually…
“You’re not alone in feeling alone. Loneliness is a common experience for entrepreneurs. The first step in combating loneliness, as in all challenges, is to acknowledge your feelings. The most critical step is next: Remove the judgment. Once you’ve acknowledged where you are and have given yourself a break for feeling that way, then you can begin to reach out and take action to change it.”

Episode #150 — Know Your Currencies! All too often, people use a single currency to evaluate success: money. That metric may show up as ‘deals closed’ or ‘projects won’ or ‘net worth’ or ‘savings amassed’ or even ‘money spent.’ No matter how people choose to label it, they’re still using money as their metric. Speaking…
Mark and I discuss the concept of ‘mindset’ where our perceptions of the external are influenced by our own internal attitudes. I reveal why most people struggle with changing their mindset and explain how my recent book is designed to combat their resistance to change. I discusses the need for allowing time to learn new patterns of behavior where a ‘first go’ at new habits usually doesn’t stick. I also share my tips on setting boundaries around your own time resource to allow you to allocate your attention and energy to the different sections of your life in a more productive and rewarding way.
