We were looking for "safe" TV programming for our viewing pleasure on the nights our 8-year-old daughter, Elli, is with us. We decided on a few episodes of Netflix's "The Crown" series that, in Season 1, chronicles Queen Elizabeth's first years as queen. Very enlightening.
I never thought about it from the perspective of the burden it placed on her shoulders and the sacrifices made by her loved ones. Of course she was tempted (and attempted) many times to impose her own will on a situation...
Getting what you want has but ONE prerequisite...a DECISION.
What shall YOU decide to do?

We are all dealing with social distancing in our own way. And...it's pretty predictable if you know what predominant style each team member possesses.
I thought I'd throw in a little DISC humor today...Do any of these sound familiar?
SOME BACKGROUND: DISC is a widely accepted model of communication and behavior first identified by American psychologist William Marston. Millions of people have taken it to better understand their (and their team's) behavioral tendencies and maximize their...
What if it were easy? I mean, we tend to make things so hard, and overly complicated. And then we ruminate on how hard it is. Ever catch yourself doing that? That's when I ask myself "What if it were easy?"
That question is what we in the coaching arena refer to as a "pattern interrupt."
A Pattern interrupt is a technique to change a particular thought, behavior or situation. Behavioral psychology and NLP (neuro linguistic programming) use this technique to interrupt and...
You're having to make decisions...FAST.
Faster than you'd like.
In the past you've made the tough calls, and been very confident about it.
You had time to consider and weight the options. You consulted your executive team. You had considerable knowledge about what you were up against. You had time to get used to the idea of the consequences of your decision. And you delivered your decisions confidently - even the bad news.
Whatever it is you want...to get it you must make a daily practice of it.
Like a line from FOX's cheeky show Lucifer...What is it you desire?
Whatever it is...we'll see just how bad you really want it. It will be...
Innovation is happening NOW!
NASCAR and Coca-Cola have been innovating...check this out.
Coca Cola was already sponsoring iRacing. Then NASCAR, with 7 races postponed this spring, got in on the action bringing some of their well-known drivers into the mix creating the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series.
Basically, this was a virtual race on a NASCAR-sanctioned track with NASCAR drivers on...
I totally understand the desire to bury your head in the sand during this whole ordeal.
But seriously - not a good move.
You know as well as I do that it's not going to help you in the long run to ignore whatever sh*t-storm is happening in your life. Alas, better to face it.
It gets worse in reality (physically & fiscally) as in no solutions = things keep getting further and further off track.
Many business owners and employees had their cash flow slow to a trickle...or completely dry up. And bills are stacking up. Those that had the foresight to save and are fortunate enough to have adequate savings are dipping into it to cover expenses.
Yet others are doing okay financially. Normal to better for some. Their paychecks are still coming while working at home or being furloughed.
Some businesses are even booming right now because they meet very specific needs and the conditions...
