When we feel overwhelmed and stressed, it's often best to start with what might be wasting our time. We should take a reflective moment to assess our actvities, attitude, thoughts, and relationships. To get started, Cynthia Bazen suggests 8 Things Successful People Never Waste Time Doing (and you shouldn't either).

Productive, successful people DO NOT:

-get sucked into social media

-go through the day without a plan 

-do emotionally draining activities

-worry about things they can't control

-hang out with negative people

-dwell on past mistakes

-focus on what other people are doing

-put themselves last in priority 

Personal Application:

-Where in your life or from the above list can you unload what is weighing you down? What kind of activities, attitude, thoughts, and relationships will positively fuel your life? 


 

DON'T DO IT!

I overheard someone ask the question, "What do I need to say 'no' to so that I can say 'yes' to something I'd really like to do? We often forget that we have control over what we say 'yes' to. When reminded about this fact, it's refreshing to realize the possibility of rearranging our lives into a healthier pattern. 

Consider this excerpt from Edward Dayton's Tools For Time Management...

It's an American proverb:  "Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today." The European approach is quite the opposite:  "Postpone everything you can. You may not have to do it tomorrow!" There are two basic ways to save time. One is to do the things we should do more effectively or efficiently and in proper priority. The second is not to do the things we shouldn't be doing at all. Make a list of all the things you are doing in your life right now. Examine your calendar. Check off each thing which you really shouldn't be doing. DON'T DO IT!

Personal Application:

What should you be saying 'no' to today, each day, and this week? 

 

Your Attitude Equals Power & Potential

We tend to believe that our performance and productivity are the most important. In fact, we find equally important is our ATTITUDE and how we interact with others. The chart below illustrates how various attitudes may impact a team:

ABILITIES + ATTITUDES = RESULT          

Great Talent + Bad Attitudes = Bad Team

Great Talent + Bad Attitudes = Average Team 

Great Talent + Average Attitudes = Good Team

Great Talent + Good Attitudes = Great Team 

(John Maxwell's "The 17 Laws of Indisputable Teamwork) 

If you want outstanding results, you need good people with great talent and aweseome attitudes. When attitudes go up, so does the potential of the team!

Personal Application:

-What is your attitude portraying to others? In what ways are you impacting and raising potential of the team?
