#283: Monday Mastery – Determination & Follow Through

Play

Welcome to our video blog and Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader Podcast with Brian Holmes! Each Monday, we provide a video & podcast audio segment designed to encourage, motivate, challenge, and develop you as a leader and influencer.

We’re unpacking the 11th of 12 factors that determine success, which is determination and follow through. A lot of us find ourselves determined to start things, but lacking when it comes to following through to completion. Don’t let perfection take precedence over progress. Press through. Finish what you started. Use the same determination that allowed you to start with such enthusiasm, to overcome resistance and see you through to the end!

Watch the video or download and listen to our audio file as well. Join us every Monday for a new Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader podcast, and every Thursday (beginning again in September) for a new in-depth episode.

#282: Seasons, Segues, and the Strategic Shifting of Priorities and Focus

Season Seasons

Few things are more constant than change. Change is inevitable. Anything living is in a constant state of change because when movement stops, life ceases.

On today’s episode, I want to talk to you about change, seasons, transition, and why it is imperative we recognize our season and steward it well.

We’re talking about Seasons, Segues, and the Strategic Shifting of Priorities and Focus.

When More is Not Always Better

Pursuing Less Can Lead To More

I am working on the assumption you’re somewhat like me here and can relate to the fact I’m a driven individual. I’m a high-achiever, I’m incredibly results-oriented, and I’m always wanting to do more.

In that drive and desire to do more, I tend to say yes a great deal more than I should, and I tend to take on more projects than I can realistically complete.

#281: Monday Mastery – Accountability

Success Factor #10

Welcome to our video blog and Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader Podcast with Brian Holmes! Each Monday, we provide a video & podcast audio segment designed to encourage, motivate, challenge, and develop you as a leader and influencer.

We’re unpacking the 10th of 12 factors that determine success, which is accountability. While isolation may appear an ideal, productive environment, it can cost you dearly. While you may have a clear vision of where you’re headed, that clarity may be based in tunnel-vision. You need to not only seek, but accept counsel and input from those you trust, and you need to surround yourself with those people. Listen in for more on accountability, and how it will take your success to the next level.

#280: How to Deal With Shiny Objects and Idea Overload

Play

shiny objects idea overload

To say distractions are rife would be an understatement. We are constantly bombarded with information in every form: advertisements, news, social media, bantering, etc.

With all we have coming at us, vying for our attention, it takes extreme discipline to stay on point, stay focused, and keep progressing.

In addition to the daily tasks that distract us, I’m really talking about shiny objects, rabbit trails, good work vs. great work, and so on.

If you want to win in your life, leadership, impact, you must develop the skills and the discipline of process, focus, and follow through.

That’s what I want to talk about today.

Your Life According To Seasons

When Change Happens And What You Need To Do About It

 

fall season seasons

When you’ve been around for as long as I have (does that make me sound old?) you may find yourself looking at life a little bit differently.

It’s no coincidence as we’re officially in autumn now, the topic of seasons would come up. There is such a thing as seasons of life. I know that in the natural we have four seasons. Where I live in Texas, we don’t get four distinct seasons per se. Sure, some days we get two or three seasons over the course of a day, but we don’t have the extremes other parts of the country – or world – experience.
