Is there any room on your calendar or in your energy bandwidth for emerging strategies that unexpectedly come across your path? How can you allocate enough time and energy to execute with excellence the planned strategies you are responsible for and also have space for emerging strategies that are opportunities you believe need to be pursued as well?
Time & Energy
There are different areas of life that pull on our energy. When you are tired or overwhelmed can you diagnose which tank may be low and needs to be topped off? Use this concept as a tool to use when you first feel the overwhelming feelings coming to see if you may be able to diagnose what is going on and resolve those feelings.
Do you ever have a gap between intention and behavior and wonder why you can’t seem to take action? You reflect over it and wonder why your thoughts are holding you back. What if it may have more to do with reflecting over your behavior in those situations to see where the obstacles may be vs. just what you are thinking about a situation? Perhaps it can lead to better decision-making strategies to help you move forward into action.
There are times when you have to make a decision regarding what to do in a certain situation. Do you dig in, persevere, work harder and push through? Or is it time to stop? It is common that if you decide to stop that you are a quitter. A very negative thing in our society. Yet what if you are not quitting – you are making a wise, strategic necessary ending? How do you discern when it is time to persevere and when it is time to stop?
Leading Through Conflict
When things are constantly changing and there is a lot of uncertainty how can you have confidence in moving forward with decisions?
In the space between stimulus and response, there is a space. You get to decide how you show up in various situations. Especially the tough ones.
Each of us has a preferred time frame reference. Being aware of those preferences can help with friction that may emerge with others.
