Be Your OWN CEO

By Craig Johns

Be Your Own CEO – create your own high performance habits, boundaries & influence.

Most people would relate CEO to a chief executive officer being the highest-ranking person in a company or other institution, ultimately responsible for taking managerial decisions. How ever we have redefined CEO in terms of you and your energy.

Wouldn’t it be great to experience greater levels of energy more often in your life? … Do you know we are all CEO’s … the chief energy officer of our live’s? … And think how that energy effect’s other people and the way you behave.

Be Your OWN CEO

Human effectiveness is ultimately a function of human energy. How will you mobilize, focus, inspire and sustain your energy? Do you nurture, transform and direct your own human energy?

Life is both a marathon and a sprint. There will be energy highs and lows in life, and the key is how you manage that. You need to develop the ability to harness and mobilise your energy on demand. This is a massive asset that you need to take full ownership of

You Are The CEO

Are you accountable for every action you take and its result? Do you make a conscious and intentional choice before considering your commitments? it is important to know and understand what you can really give 100% attention to.

Successful leaders say NO more than they say YES. Are you living proactively or reactively? Be more proactive and take greater charge of your life. Be proactive by design versus reactive by default. How are you being proactive in clearly mapping out your priorities and desires?

Do you understand the business of your life? Your success depends on your attention to your entire “human” company. Break down yourself into different divisions of your own “human” company and create your OWN CEO Audit & Plan.

It’s now time for you to Be Your OWN CEO!

Active CEO Performance Tip

Build Your OWN TRIBE To Upgrade Yourself – The recent events have led to a lot of self reflection, you realise you need to upskill and upgrade, but you don’t feel like you have the right people around you to make the change. Who are the mentors, coaches & people in your proximity? 1. Identify and write down a list of every skill you want to upgrade. 2. Write down a list of people and/or types of people you need in your proximity to upgrade those skills. 3. Write down 3 curious questions that you would like to ask each person and make a phone call or send an email and ask for a virtual coffee.
