Those Optimize Guys Episode 6 - Maximizing Life and Business Roles
Maximizing Life and Business Roles
This week, we take a bit of a turn from the usual tech based tips to methods for thinking about maximizing your ability to "scratch your itch" in life. The gist of the discussion is: are you working "on" your life, or "in" your life? These ideas include:
Maximizing your enjoyment and satisfaction with your personal and business life.
Examining your life when you are part of the hive.
Defining the things in life that you can control.
We also talk about the steps necessary to define your muse:
In order to make the most impact with your life, you need to take time to examine it. This must be a deliberate effort.
In order to figure out what you need to do to scratch your itch, you need establish your core values. What are the beliefs and values in your life that are non negotiable?
Defining "Critical Success Factors" - What do I need to do absolutely right in order to succeed?
Defining "Key Performance Indicators" - How can I figure out how I am doing in the areas of life that are critical to me?
We also discuss:
Management by paying attention.
The importance of writing your ideas down as a commitment.
Dealing with toxic clients.
Your wishes and goals are infinitely editable.
Books we're Reading:
Doug - Decision Points
- Memoirs of George W. Bush and an Agatha Christie mystery
Sergio wants a Steno Machine! Writing a book is hard work, and it would go alot lot faster if he would type 200WPM. He will be working his butt off this summer to learn Plover, the open source steno program.
We would love to hear about your progress as you tackle the things mentioned in this week's podcasts and in the next four podcasts to come. Please keep us in the loop and send in questions or comments, and we will be sure to address them.
