Are you ready to hear?

being-heard-1A friend and I go walking early every Sunday morning, and this week he said, “If only someone had told me that when I was twenty five. “

In my experience we get the information we need at the time we need it, but often it is hidden amongst a pile of other, often contradictory advice. The key seems to be more about recognising good advice when it’s given. I suggest two things are seriously likely to improve your success in this regard: one is training your self to stay open to different ways of considering the situation or opportunity, the second being to develop and maintain a small trusted group of people whose opinion and advice you value.

The power and rhythm of “your” beat

You only need to listen to any piece of music or stand and watch the waves on a beach to realise the power and importance of rhythm.

You too have a rhythm and the more you are in sync with it the less stress you will feel. Watch for clues in others as to what their rhythm may be, fast tempo or slow and heavy. There are many words that may help you with this early awareness but two very good words to start with are: Weak and Powerful. When your rhythm is powerful you are closer to being in sync and can expect big things to happen.

Buying and Selling Time?

goodtime-now_811Stop employing people for a block of time, and instead employ people to deliver value. Convert all your business thinking and documents to measure and reward value and results.

In the food industry most contracts would still need to document when the work needs to take place IE between 8 am and 4.30 pm. Other than that, move the focus of all other thinking to the value delivered.

This needs to be part of the person’s job to be involved in measuring and commenting on their value delivery. IE a waiter needs to know how many customers he served and the average check value, a sales person may need to measure the average $value of their sales calls per day.

Are you Pretending?

being-fakeI just did a review of my social media profile. I checked in with my business and personal values, looked at relationships with my family,  friends, staff and customers.

I pride my self in my authenticity but there is still some work to do to align my behavior and projected image with the real me.

I challenge you to do this same review on yourself, get honest and become the real you.

This is something you need to practice everyday, for most of us the path  to Authenticity requires relentless maintenance but the effort will make  an incredible difference.  Save all the time you waste being a pretender.

Minding your Diet

MindfulEatingGiven that eating appears to be a mind triggered process- (over eating and anorexic disorders) For better or worse most of us manually manage this but on the whole the population is still overweight.

How far away are the mobile phone apps that will some how feed the mind and counter the Anorexic trigger of, “I am over weight”, or the over eating issue of  feeling good when eating. Is there an opportunity for someone to create a set of  psychology based apps to replace the chemical and drug related treatments like  the nicotine patch treatment for giving up cigarettes.

This would certainly fuel the change in the healthy eating lifestyle space and the ever changing the food industry.
