Your work history is irrelevant

When trying to land a new job or tell someone the details of a situation you’re in, most of us dive deep into the past. It makes us feel validated and tells why we area where we are in life.

But your past only lives in the present. It has not impact on you until you think about it right now. Some of these thoughts are subconscious because our past can impact us so deeply. But if you are not thinking about it right now, your past is not living on.

If your past lives in the present, this means the future does as well. It has not happened yet, but you get to think about it right now and feel excited and motivated, or terrified and scared. You get to decide what you want to think about it.

This week we dive into why we all go to our past and why that’s not doing us any favors. Listen and learn more.  

 What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Where your past lives
  • How your past impacts and shapes who you are right now
  • Why you should focus more on the future
  • What focusing on the future looks like

Failure

Anyone who is successful and reaching their goals is sitting on a huge pile of failures. We seem to get this intellectually, but when it comes to actually being willing to fail at something, it’s a no.

Your brain is trying to protect you from failing so of course we are not excited and pushing to fail. But if we want to learn and figure out how to be successful, we have to figure out how to fail. When your desire to succeed is greater than your desire to not fail, that’s when the magic happens.

This week, we are diving into why failure is important, what most of us end up doing instead and what the true meaning of failure is. Make sure to subscribe because next week you are going to learn the step by step process to fail forward and fail fast. List and learn. 

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • What the true definition of failure is
  • What most of us do when fail at something a few times
  • When failure becomes a problem
  • Why failure is required to have true success

Insecure Overachievers

On average, do you work less than 50 hours a week? Are you satisfied with your success at work? Do you like your work/life balance? Are you confident you are not close to burnout at work?

If you answered no to any of these questions, this episode is for you.

We no longer work a 40 hour work week from 9-5. We are globally connected 24 hours and work with people around the world. Our “working hours” are fluid and all over the place.

It’s easy to overachieve and work crazy hours to be the top performer. Companies look for this in candidates. They even reward overachievers with promotions and more money. But if the reason why you are overachieving is to prove your worth, it’s an uphill battle.

Tune in this week and learn how stay driven and work hard, but not overachieve at the expense of your sanity. Burnout is easy to get to, but hard to walk backwards from. Listen and learn how.

 

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Where the 40 hours a week, 9-5 schedule originated from
  • How overachieving is encouraged and rewarded at work
  • Why overachieving can lead to burnout
  • How to not be an insecure overachiever

Stop being defensive with these 3 words

Think about the last time you were really upset and defensive about something at work that clearly was not right. We’ve all had these moments. They also tend to be when we are not at our best.

I’ve yet to see anyone show up as their best when they are feeling defensive. In sports, the defensive players are there to stop the opposing team. The same thing happens at work. When we’re defensive, we’re no longer working as a team and trying to reach the end goal together. Are a just made and feeling very justified in feeling that way.

But the thing is, there’s not upside to being defensive at work. It just slows you down. It slows down your listening abilities. It slows down creative ideas to solve the issue. And it slows down your growth as a leader.

In this episode you are going to learn the 3-word phrase to stop getting defensive. Every time you say it, it opens up the issue and helps to quickly find a solution. Not saying it just makes your work unnecessarily harder. Listen and learn what this powerful 3-word phrase is.

 

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Why we all get defensive
  • Why it can sometimes be a problem for us at work
  • The most powerful 3-word phrase that shuts down feeling defensive
  • How to apply it in real life

How vs. What

Take a minute and think about what you really want. Like really big want. What happens when you think about it?

If you are like every other person, you probably got excited and then distracted. Because when your brain can’t figure out HOW to get there, it shuts down and moves to a problem it can solve.

The way to overcome this is to focus more on the “what” and less on the “how.” This not only works with your personal goals, but it also is the key to stakeholder alignment, project prioritization, and moving faster at work. List and learn how.

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Why your naturally focus on how to do something
  • Why focusing on the “what” is more important
  • How the “what” enables you to move forward faster
  • Real life examples of focusing on the “what” and not the “how”
