Cross train to reach goals faster

Cross training is typically defined as an exercise regimen that uses several modes of training to develop a specific component of fitness. Cross training includes to train (a worker, athlete, etc.) to be proficient at different, usually related, skills, tasks, jobs, etc.  A company or organization that teaches your employees the skills and responsibilities of another position increase their effectiveness.   How does that relate to personal development and growth goals?  A cross training program for personal growth provides the tools to increase resilience to stress and maximize productivity.   There are six lifestyle areas; fiances, physical health, emotional health, relationships, spirituality and recreation.   If you were to evaluate your satisfaction in each of these areas what would you learn about how they impact your overall life goals, your resilience, and ability to manage stress?  Cross training drives innovation, engagement, and creates sustainable results.  If you are unsure of how you will reach your 2018 goals and would like help with cross training,  register for the Lead with Passion retreat.  Click here to sign...

Who Knew I was Soooo Defensive?!

When my sister asked me a simple question, (Do you know where the toothpaste is?) my response was full of energy and intensity. It was not proportional to the question or the situation. I completely over reacted. I was stuck in my own shame of being perceived that she was criticizing my organization.  All that internal dialogue around what she meant and how could she question me and what on earth can’t she see it right in front of her, happened in a split second. My response was was aggressive and hostile. Watch the video for more examples of my over reactions and why I have them.

Are these good ideas?

Paying the deductible before you can schedule medical appointments to ensure you attend.   Having credit cards that stop working when you reach a pre-set budget per category to keep you from over spending.   Allowing restaurant servers to not serve you additional food once you passed your meal calorie count.   Having the car onboard system like Onstar call a parent when teenager is driving above speed limit or erratically. I have been reading Predictably Irrational, a book about the hidden forces that shape our decisions. This book is research based and explains that our misguided behaviors are not random, they are irrational and predictable.   Basically these questions above are intended to elicit your thoughts about pre-commitment strategies.  Based on the author’s research, we have the best chance of reaching our goals if we have dictated deadlines that are reinforced by someone else.  We are predictable in our demonstration of poor self-control. It’s a struggle trying to make life changes. You don’t have to do it alone.  Click here to join one of my accountability...

Do YOU and have more FUN

Do you and have more Fun! How often do you stop yourself from being silly, goofy or just plain cray cray? Why is it that only children are allowed to have fun? I declared August my month of fun.  I went on a spontaneous girls trip to Jamaica where we had many laughs and adventures in spite of not having our luggage for most of the trip. (It was lost with the airlines.)  We were able to just enjoy each other and explore the island.  Why do we put off fun? Then,  I traveled with family to Puerto Vallarta.  We have an annual family trip to reconnect and spend time together. We enjoyed relaxing in the warm water.  Two very different trips but both were exactly what I enjoy doing with my time away from working. What do you do for fun? What keeps you sane and wanting to do it over and over again? If you don’t know, reach out to me and we can uncover it together.  I share a quote in the video that reminds me that it’s okay to do what you enjoy and so what if other people have criticism.  Just Do YOU! It’s a struggle trying to make life changes. You don’t have to do it...
