May 1, 2017 - Is everything relying on you? Did you wake up this morning excited and ready to take on the work week with gusto? Did you benefit from a weekend of enjoyment and relaxation or feel pressure to get countless things done at home before launching into the work week? Are you constantly thinking about how much you have on your plate, how much you must get done or have to do? Are you frustrated by what you are not getting done or can never seem get around to doing? If you are feeling pressure, guilt and frustration instead of excitement, anticipation and progress, then you are suffering from a balancing mindset instead of a synergy mindset.
Take an MM&I Moment to better understand your frame of mind and how you can shift it in a more empowered way of thinking. This starts with recognizing the fact that you cannot and should not expect yourself to do it all. Most important, it doesn't mean letting go of something you want to do or believing you must put it off or delay it. It means viewing your surroundings and options from a different perspective in order to get more accomplished. Who or what resource could assist you with the "not so exciting" tasks necessary that you need or want completed? Who can help you move pieces of a project forward while you work on something more rewarding? Who can take responsibility for some of what you have to do, so you no longer feel overwhelmed. What do you believe that only you can do, when there could be someone or a resource more ideal to take it off your hands? Being open to all possible resources and support is a powerful secret to shifting from trying to balance your responsibilities to synergizing them for exponential ideal outcomes. The little actions and interactions we create and take help us towards realizing our biggest achievements in life and in work.
