Own Your OWN SPACE – What is the impact you have on the world through your own unique set of skills and the way you have put them together?

We are all unique and our uniqueness is what allows us to differentiate ourselves and stand out from the crowd. Besides becoming world-class in one skill, talent can come from having a unique stack of skills that no one else has.

Your edge is who you are! What seems normal to you is absolutely amazing to everyone else.

Own Your OWN SPACE

You just need to believe in yourself and have absolute clarity on your vision and then you and your unique set of skills, will become attractive to your target audience.

How can you combine different skills to create value in a way no one else can?

Wouldn’t it be great to become one-of-a-kind in your own league?

Two key aspects that stand out to develop a skill and achieve skill mastery are: you need deliberate and repeatable practice.

7 Steps To Achieve Skill Mastery

Lets look at how you can develop skill mastery.

  • Focus on the task at hand and remove all distractions.
  • Break the skill down into simple tasks or movements.
  • Start out slowly or in slow motion.
  • Gradually increase speed and quality of repetitions
  • Frequent repetitions with a lot of breaks
  • Multiple daily repetitions with limited duration.
  • Visualise through imagining the task or skill being performed with greatness.

Are you ready to Own Your OWN SPACE?

Do you find that you are overwhelmed with a whole lot of ideas and items on your to do list, and you don’t know where to start?

I have found the Priority 2×2 Matrix my best friend when it comes to productivity, performance and effective output.

There are two great Priority 2×2 Matrix that will help you find clarity, speed up the decision making process and manage your time more effectively:

  1. IMPORTANCE vs URGENCY
  2. IMPACT vs EFFORT

IMPORTANCE vs URGENCY

When there is a sense of urgency and overwhelm, I first start with IMPORTANCE vs URGENCY. Start by creating a 2×2 grid (adapted from President Dwight Eisenhower) with IMPORTANCE on the y-axis (vertical) and URGENCY x-axis (horizontal). Then place your ideas or to-do item’s in the grid according to their IMPORTANCE and URGENCY. 

  1. High importance, high urgency (Top right box)
  2. High importance, low urgency (Top left box)
  3. Low importance, high urgency (Bottom right box)
  4. Low importance, low urgency (Bottom left box)
Priority How Do I Choose When Everything Is Important And Urgent? Importance and urgency

Choose the top 3 priorities that are positioned in the in the far right and highest point of the top right box (high importance / high urgency), and use these as your three tasks to complete today or first (if they will take longer than one day). After you have completed tasks in box #1, then you will need to determine which tasks in box 2 or 3 are more important. The IMPACT vs EFFORT Priority 2×2 Matrix will assist you in making this decision.

Sometimes it is really challenging to differentiate between the tasks, when they all feel important and urgent. That’s when the IMPACT vs EFFORT Priority 2×2 Matrix, becomes your go to tool to find clarity.

IMPACT vs EFFORT

Create a 2×2 grid (adapted from President Dwight Eisenhower) with IMPACT on the y-axis (vertical) and EFFORT x-axis (horizontal). Then place your ideas or to-do item’s in the grid according to their IMPACT and EFFORT. 

  1. High impact, high effort (Top right box)
  2. High impact, low effort (Top left box)
  3. Low impact, high effort (Bottom right box)
  4. Low impact, low effort (Bottom left box)
Priority How Do I Choose When Everything Is Important And Urgent? Impact and effort

Choose the top 3 priorities that are positioned in the far left and at the highest point of the top left box (high impact / low urgency), and use these as your three tasks to complete today or first (if they will take longer than one day). After you have completed tasks in box #2, then you will need to focus on tasks in box 1.

It is really important that you only choose a maximum of 3 tasks to complete each day, no matter whether you use the IMPORTANCE vs URGENCY or IMPACT vs EFFORT Priority 2×2 Matrix.

It’s time for you to find clarity, make a decision and own your time!

CEO Performance

Craig Johns talks about CEO Performance, the third P of the 3P’s of the Leadership Performance Formula. CEO Performance is about developing high performance habits, effective routines and important cues, while removing unwanted contamination and negative influence in your life.

How many CEO Performance habits do you have?

Humans are designed for boundaries in their life. Without clear boundaries it is easy to head down broken path or fall into a trap. Sometimes boundaries need to lose to ensure creativity and innovation can occur, and other times they need to be tight so you limit the distractions.

High performance habits involve unleashing your courage, improving productivity, raising necessity, remaining focused and creating clarity.

What are the routines you can create to reduce time wasting, increase ENERGY, REFLECT effectively, improve HEALTH, curiously GROW, enhance your PROXIMITY, and positively INFLUENCE others?

High performing leaders eliminate the unnecessary habits and negative distractions in their life, so they can energetically execute with focus, confidence and clarity.

What habits and routines do you need to break or create to ensure that you can be more productive and perform better?

Check out the newly Breaking The CEO Code whitepaper. It provides an overview of Breaking The CEO Code and showcases the 6 key phases. We also go a little deeper into the 2nd phase PERFORMANCE, where we discuss the 3 P’s of the Leadership Performance Formula.
