We have the power to choose our response. Where we want to focus.
And it is that space that allows us to create and choose that response. Choose our focus.
But what if you are not sure where that space is right now? Do you ever feel that your running around, from here to there, and there is no space to even consider that response?
I’m guilty for taking on too much (what can I say I just love being out there with you guys….) and eek…I realise that I’m on autopilot (ever driven somewhere and don’t quite remember how?….Or is that just me). Remember that studies have found that only 2% of people are truly effective multitaskers.
But sometimes I realise that I have stopped taking a considered view of what would be most powerful for me to working on right now.
That sometimes is usually when I find myself snapping at my hubby, and hiding myself away – urgh…
One of the quick ways I assess how focused I am and where I need to focus my energy is to use this 3 question approach. It helps me put a number on where I am now, and measures the gap to where I want to be.
This 2 minute video is from a speaking engagement I did back in March in Dubai to a mix of business owners and corporate individuals. You can adapt the questions to suit any situation, but best to leave the third questions as is.
You can apply this three question scenario to any number of situations just by replacing the subject.
- On a scale of 1-10 how did I deal with/manage/grow my business/self development/personal wealth in the last 12 months?
- On a scale of 1-10 how is my focus on my business/self development/personal wealth over the next 12 months?
- On a scale of 1-10 how are my energy levels?
So did you get your number?
The next step is to work out what you need to do if you were to:
- Who would you have to be if you were to raise your number by 10%? How would you behave, what would you be thinking?
- What would the very next action you need to do to get your number to move forward by 10? (Be specific, it easier if it is taken in small actionable steps.
If you need some clarity on how to get your number moving forward then why not talk it through with me and book a complimentary clarity call right here.
