Delegating work to other people?
The people you are asking to do the work don’t own the business, blog, album, book, piece of art.
They can never love it as much as you because you own it, not them. Their upside is less, so expect a little less.
You will be more successful and productive if you manage expectations better!
Will today’s emergency even be remembered? Will that thing you’re particularly anxious about have been hardly worth the time you put into it?
Better question: What could you do today that would matter a year from now?
We “See” a lot of things and ignore ..but when we “Look” at it we pay attention.
Lot of the things we do in “See” mode and to conformity. But that’s fine since we are lazy beings.
Trouble starts when life’s critical decisions we do in “See” mode like Career choices (Copy from others), or getting married.
Successful people do these two things to the mark:
#1 Identifying what’s critical for you – Your dreams, goals, mission, etc.
#2 Use your bests “Look” mode for what’s in #1. Grind it hard… to figure out the path for it.
Remember hard work does not come in the first two if you can figure out the first part, and do your bests. Working hard comes naturally to fulfilling your dreams!
Do you want to grow in your career or do you want to be right? The two are mutually exclusive. The need to be proven right in arguments and discussions shuts you out to learning and course correction while you come across as arrogant.
The opposite is your need to grow which makes you open to suggestions, different ideas, and criticism. Some of which will add to your learning while leading to better results.
So, remind yourself each time that you are better off being wrong and learning something new for the future instead of being perceived to be right temporarily.
You can tell when an audience has stopped listening to a presentation. Phones come out, people slouch in their seats, maybe someone dozes off. If you notice this happening during your talk, try a few techniques to grab people’s attention.
Lower your voice, or even pause. Speaking in a monotone isn’t very engaging, of course, and neither is always speaking at the same volume. To regain attention, try speaking softly so that people need to focus in order to follow along, or using a well-timed pause to create suspense around what’s coming next.
