Goal Setting

My blogs are all about showing you examples of antimimeticisomorphism – the goal setting video below is a classic example. I agree and disagree with it, because there is a subjective element to it, but for now – watch it and make up your own mind.

This is the kind of video I will have my clients watch and we’ll discuss it in a MasterMind Session to reveal key nuances and distinctions. If you’d like to participate at this level, give us a call.

From ‘Just A Job’ To Finding Your Calling

I come from a family that valued higher education, hard work and integrity. I can’t say that it’s all that common these days.

One of the foundational principles I was brought up with was the understanding of the hierarchy shown below. This Professional Mastery Blog is all about helping you migrate from having ‘just a job’, to developing a great career, accelerating in your profession and ultimately finding your calling – the reason you’re here and the only way you get to feed your spirit living the dream life you’ve always wanted.

It’s what I describe as

living a life of revolution by design
rather than evolution by default
to avoid extinction by stagnation
” — Dr Marc Dussault

Career Change: Lessons From an Eagle

Someone sent me this link which is a great metaphor for someone contemplating a career change.  The average person will have multiple careers, changing jobs every 6 to 10 years and careers between 2 to 4 times. Furthermore, people should expect a career change to take between 2 to 6 years to implement. Click here to get a priceless lesson.

3 Quick productivity tips

Productivity Tip #1

When traveling, test traveling at different times of the day to test and determine which one is MOST productive and efficient for you. Contrary to popular practice, taking an early flight (when you have the option not to) is not the most productive option – especially if you sleep on the flight. Also, you want to consider traffic to and from the airports and coordination considerations. I now travel more often at midday – avoiding traffic as well as getting things done prior to the flight, being wide awake and working on the flight and then picking up loose ends when I arrive at my destination. It’s all about “Perfect Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance.”

Productivity Tip #2

Upgrade your hotel room and/or pick a different hotel or apartment when traveling to familiar cities. You’d be amazed at how different each choice can be. I vary my hotel selections from trip to trip for variety as well as based on what I am doing. If I am meeting with several clients, I will rent a 2-bedroom suite or apartment so that I can have visitors in a comfortable environment. The point is TEST the options – sometimes an upgrade is less expensive than hiring a separate boardroom.

Productivity Tip #3

This one’s a personal favorite of mine, it’s been called time shifting – recording your favorite TV shows or sports and watching them without commercial interruptions (saving you time) when it’s convenient for you. With Tivo and Digital Video Recorders, there is no excuse not to do it. I simply will not watch live TV anymore. If it’s sports, I’ll start to watch it 15 to 30 minutes after it starts and “chase play” through the commercials. I simply cannot afford waste associated with commercials.

I am not the only one doing this – the entire world has embraced time shifting. All it takes is the foresight to plan ahead and make the commitment to stick with it. Trust me, once you start, you will never go back.

These productivity tips are important because we all have the same amount of time – 24 hours in our day. The difference between successful people and less successful people is their use and leverage of time.

The more productive you can be, the more time you gain to do what you really, really enjoy.

The more you do, the more you can get done

When I talk to my clients about productivity, efficiency and effectiveness, I triangulate or combine the Pareto Principle, Goal Setting and several other strategies in a concept I call Voluntary Simplexity. It has its foundation in the movement from the 1980s called Voluntary Simplicity that was made popular with the International Bestseller “Your Money Or Your Life”.

When you apply it, it slows your life down, much like the slow-motion effects in the movie The Matrix.

Imagine being able to live life with that level of confidence, peace and serenity, all without compromising results but improving them. Have a look at my personal mastery website and you’ll see the holistic approach I take to business growth.

How Are You Thinking?

I created this diagram to illustrate different ways of thinking… To adopt and Exponential Mindset™ takes time and exposure. As a blog reader, you are passively involved in the process, to kick it up another notch, you really should get proactive and attend the only FREE event I have scheduled this year – the Exponential Extravaganza scheduled for Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.

Exponential MasterMind Mindset Thinking

Exponential MasterMind Mindset Thinking

Nothing beats being in a room full of like-minded people who ‘get’ how this works. As you can see from the event page, this is a first-time-ever and one-time-only event.

Imagine what it would be like to have “World Class Exponential Thinking™”…

How different would your results be?

How much less effort would you need to put out to get better results? After all the ultra rich and super successful have exactly the same number of hours in their week as you do…

It’s not what or who you know that creates results – it’s HOW you think.

When you have an Exponential Mindset™, it means that everything you do increases at an increasing rate…

Can you imagine that happening to your bank account?!?! Hmmm…

Now you’re starting to think Exponentially!

Failure is a sign you’re stretching beyond your comfort zone

This short 1-minute YouTube video says it all. Failure is a sign you’re stretching beyond your comfort zone and expanding what I call your Sphere of Influence – a concept I explain in my Entrepreneur’s Success Book. Anyway, for today and right now, I just want you to take 1 minute out of your busy day and be amazed at all the super successful people and how they failed before they hit the big time. It’s truly inspiring.
