Becoming A Better Leader Monday Momentum 8

Balance…or Not! I’m writing a new book. I’m thinking of calling it Adrenaline as a Way of Life. Or maybe I’ll try Time: There Will Never be Enough of It, So Squander What You’ve Got. Here’s a sneak peak at my chapter outline. Chapter One: E-mergency Answer all emails at once. Do not delay. Stop whatever you are doing and answer that baby. Chapter Two: Adrenaline is My Motivator Save tasks that are “due today” until the last hour, better yet, the last half hour of your workday so you will have the added energy boost of adrenaline to help you complete your tasks. Chapter Three: Be a Hog Hog the copier. Put off using office machines until the last possible minute, never mind if your colleagues need them. Chapter Four: Under-prepare for Meetings/Rehearsals That way you’ll find out what you’re really made of. Can you fly by the seat of your pants? Are you great at improvisation? Can you fake it in front of a group? Chapter Five: Don’t Bother Planning Ahead, Wait Until the Last...

Becoming A Better Leader Monday Momentum 7

Balance: Getting and Staying Centered In this episode, I’m starting to focus on my “Four Leadership Principles”: Foundations, Relationships, Systems, and Balance. Today we focus on balance. Even though it’s the fourth principle, it’s the one that makes the others work. If we can’t manage our use of time, the musical version of this principle is “Value the Rests.” In music the rests have a distinctive purpose and are not just the absence of sound. They are punctuation. They are a regrouping of energy. They are times used to clarify and cleanse the auditory palate. Balance has several dimensions: Work/Life Balance Balancing Multiple Tasks and Priorities Balance of Self: Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, and Discernment You may be able to think of other ways balance is important to you and how to define that dimension. There’s also the internal and external dimension to notice and regulate: Internal Mental- Growing in knowledge and experience challenging our intellect Emotional- Learning to separate feeling from thinking and being able to fully give and receive love Physical- Staying healthy by managing diet, exercise, and the rhythm of life External Work- Setting boundaries so work doesn’t encroach on personal life while being effective in productive work Family- Being differentiated so we remain ourselves and don’t get sucked into dramas while spending quaility time with family members Recreation- Managing use of time by putting recreation and social time on our calendar When planning for the enterprise you lead, be sure to plan for your life as well. Then integrate the two plans. Balance doesn’t mean that everything is equal. Balance means that we highlight what’s more important and place it in perspective with everything else. Many times we need to consider letting go of something in order or achieve what’s most important to us. Being centered in this sense is being grounded in solid principles.
