Finding the Still Water

LEARN | TWELVE, JUNE 2019 

 

I recently listened to a lecture about turmoil in life. We all have it. We all hate it.

The person giving the lecture walked into the room with a glass of water. He proceeded to shake the water in a circular motion within the glass explaining that this is how most of us feel - how most of our brains are functioning right now. Constantly thinking…constantly juggling a million priorities…. constantly adding to our lengthy list of what’s next and all of the things we have to do to get there. This constant stress can be felt both personally and professionally. “I’m one big sale from stability in my life” OR “I just need help in these areas to achieve my goals” OR “If my children would only listen to THIS, things would be so much easier!”.

Time Blocking Strategy

LEARN | TWELVE, APRIL 2019 

You know the what and the how, but do you know the when?

Like most professionals, you’re probably a planner.  You have your “to do” lists and your carefully laid out directions on what to do and how to do it.  But do you plan when to do those things?  If not, you may often find yourself jumping from task to task, maybe feeling a little overwhelmed by your “to do” lists and not getting as much accomplished in a day as you’d originally intended.  Have no fear, time blocking is here to help! Elon Musk does it, so does Bill Gates, you’ll be in good company!

Too Much Buffering? How to Structure Your Time, Systems and Accountability for Better Focus

The definition of a good Buffer Day is a day focused in preparation for upcoming Focus Days.  True “Buffer” Days are meant to be spent on delegations, putting out fires and working on the business so that when Focus Days come, we have the capabilities in place to truly focus.  Without careful planning though, every day can quickly become a Buffer Day, ever creeping into our focus time.

Growth takes a backseat because the majority of time is spent cleaning up urgent messes rather than focusing generating new revenue.  A friend of mine refers to this place in business as “Marshmallowland;” a place where time stands still and we operate in a chronic state of trying to move forward, but stuck in a sticky, grabby mess that keeps us immobilized and bouncing around endlessly in our business.

4 Simple Inbox Tips To Gain An Hour (or more) Of Your Day Back!

LEARN | TWELVE, SEPTEMBER 2018 

Inbox dread. We’ve all experienced it. After a weekend away, or even a lunch break, and you dread seeing your inbox filled again. Researchers at Carleton University recently reported business professionals now spend one third of their time at the office, and HALF of the time they work at home in their inbox. 30% of the time the emails were not important or urgent. That’s 11.7 hours spent at work and 5.3 hours at home — every week. I don’t know about you but I would gladly spend those 17 hours NOT in my inbox. Not only is it a drain on time it’s a drain on energy.

HELLO | TWELVE, FEBRUARY 2018

Believe (in) the Hype! 

It's an e xciting start to the weekend  here in Philadelphia.    Our Eagles are Super Bowl bound , and our city's energy level is at an unprecendented height.   To the right, my son- Underdog Nathan- headed off to school today.  :)

I've been a rabid Eagles fan my entire life.  Growing up, I remember the days of Buddy Ryan.   My grandmother, a die-hard Iggles fan, used to sit outside in her green satin embroidered Eagles jacket listening to the game on the radio and cheering on our team.  Even before I really understood the game, I had an ingrained love for the Eagles and the sport.
