PURPOSE Create A Ripple Effect

Craig Johns talks about PURPOSE, create a ripple effect and the importance of knowing your WHY, VISION, MISSION and VALUES.

Have you ever wondered what the most successful people in the world have in common? They have absolute clarity on their vision!

It is very difficult to find your destination, when you don’t know what it is. To be able to gain clarity on your vision, you first need to understand your purpose in life.

Why do you get up each day with a  spring in your stride, what fuels your fire, what brings a smile to your face?

Today we are going to explore why you need to understand your purpose so you can be a world class leader who is creating a ripple effect.

Why – Vision – Mission – Values

Let’s start with your Why, your Purpose in life

What is your reason for existence as a human being? What is your intention and objective that you want to achieve in life? Why have you been put on this planet?

How can you create a ripple effect through your employees, team members and people of influence?

Focus on something bigger than just yourself. Determine what your companies or your own real purpose is in life. Your why or your companies why?

What work can you do to serve that purpose and leave a positive mark or dent on the world? The WHY is the purpose, cause or belief that drives every one of us.

Vision

What is your destination? What does the future look like? What does success look like in 5, 10, 20, 30 or 100 years time?

Does your vision inspire you, challenge you and make you feel a little bit or a whole lot uncomfortable? (for the right reasons?)

My vision:

“DEVELOP HIGH PERFORMING LEADERS WHO POSITIVELY IMPACT PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD”

Mission

What is the reason and path you will take to get to your vision? What is your intention and how you will do it?

The mission must be simple and easy for people to understand the path that you will take and why you will take it to achieve the vision.

My mission:

“TRANSFORMING INFLUENCERS INTO BEING HIGH PERFORMING LEADERS”

Values

What is your DNA? What are the core values that you will base decisions and beliefs on?

What will you be consistent with so your are congruent with your message and who your are?

My values:

On this episode of the active CEO Podcast we talk about the four basic fundamentals of being a high performing leader, on the second episode of Breaking The CEO Code. It is a short podcast episode where host Craig Johns decodes a new aspect of being a high performing leader each week.

Craig talks about the four basic fundamentals of being a high performing leader:

  1. Exercise daily
  2. Fuel the body with the right food
  3. Free your mind
  4. Recover with purpose

These four components are the fundamental, non-negotiable, building blocks to determine how high your performance ceiling is. Talent will only set your minimum height, whereas the four basic fundamentals will determine how high you can raise your ability to perform at your absolute potential.

8 Tips to Start 2019 With the Right Intent

You are finishing up your well-deserved Christmas and New Years holiday, and if you got it right, you will feel fresh, recharged, and have the passion to lead with purpose.

Now, works commences in a few days and you want to bring you’re A-Game and start 2019 with the intent and energy you wish to continue all year.

Last year, you probably came out with all guns blazing, without much thought, and within a few weeks, days or in some cases a couple of hours, were back to your old habits, routines and potentially mistakes.

There is a much smarter way, if you want to deliver a high performance environment for both your team and yourself.

Those closest to you will appreciate it!

Before we get started, did your plan of having a holiday that allowed you to relax, rejuvenate and forget all about the stresses of work come to fruition?

I would expect not for many of you as you were unable to switch off an allow yourself the time and space, from work, to fully recharge.

So lets take a look at some proven ways to ensure that you are being your best possible self, every single day, through the decisions you make, habits you create and mindset you start with when you walk into the office on day one:

Approach

Eat a healthy meal, hydrate yourself and go to bed early the night before your first day back in the office. Allow yourself the opportunity to get at least 8hrs sleep, leave the phone or any other electronic devices tucked away, and wake up and do at least 30 minutes of exercise and/or meditation. Wait until after you have had a healthy breakfast, which includes fruit, with your partner or family. Make sure you are present with those you choose to have breakfast with.

Groom yourself so that you present the image that creates a positive feeling for both yourself and the people you interact with. Take a deep breath, clear the mind and walk into the office with positive energy, a smile and posture that breaths confidence. Acknowledge everyone, be present and actively listen to their exciting holiday adventures.

Clear

Many people fly out the door in a rush on the last day before their vacation. In a perfect world, you will ‘wipe the table’ so to speak before you depart so that you can come in fresh on day one, without the stresses that have built up in the previous year. If not, clear your desk, remove any unwanted documents and ‘reset the table’ that will allow you to work with clarity, focus and without distraction, before you commence anything else.

Plan

Before you turn on a compute or check your phone for emails, you should write a plan. It will be the best 30minutes spent all year, because your mind will have greater clarity and broader perspective following a holiday. This will allow you to brainstorm what is important to your role; design and create a strategy; and put an action plan in place so you can commence your work with less stress and more than likely increased productivity for 2019. You may want to do this in nature or somewhere with a great view, before you sit down at your desk.

Priorities

What will really make a difference in 2019? Being able to reset your priorities is so valuable after a break as what you thought was important prior to the break, may not have such urgency anymore. Setting priorities that create a quick win, to get the team energised and pumped up early in the year, are just as important as creating the priorities that will bring long-term benefits to both you’re the company and your performance.

Today

Something that I have found really useful over many years is to create a simple weekly spreadsheet, with five columns:

  1. Urgent – Today
  2. Important – Tomorrow
  3. Valuable – By the end of the week
  4. Useful – Next week
  5. Completed – Everything that has been completed this week

What it does is allow you to prioritise and reprioritise daily to ensure that you are being the most productive. In general there will only be 3-5 items in each column. Anything more than that and you will become overwhelmed and stress levels will gradually build and take command of your mindset and actions.

Habits

Creating positive habits and routines that allow you to deliver performance in the work you do and with the people you lead requires both great self-discipline and self-control. Taking breaks every 45-60minutes, even for just 1-5minutes, allows your mind to recharge and focus. This doesn’t mean checking emails on your phone and talking about work to a colleague. It means switching off and giving your mind a break.

Constantly checking emails and having alerts going off on phones, is the greatest distraction of productivity that effect most people. Try checking your emails only 2 or 3 times per day. I find I am most effective when I check emails at 10am and 3pm. It allows me to focus my time on projects and important meetings, rather than cluttering my head with too many thoughts and ideas. You will also find that many problems are solved and questions are answered by the time you check the email.

Make

After you have had breakfast, make your lunch, fill a couple of bottles of water, and grab some snacks like fruit, nuts and health bars to take to work. One you will save money and time going out to get food throughout the day, and two you will eat a lot healthier.

This doesn’t mean that you continue working while eating as you need to give yourself a longer break, especially during the middle of the day, you recharge and refocus so you can be productive right until you leave the office.

Fun

This year, you need to ensure that you are having fun, laughing and being inspired by the people you work with. This type of environment starts with how you arrive each day and ensuring you bring energy and a positive attitude.
