Do you feel stuck, despite your best efforts to get momentum? Chances are - based on almost 20 years of research - there are one of three reasons for this "stuck-ness."
1. You're doing things a way that used to work.
2. You're doing things with people you've always spent time around.
3. You're doing things in a space/place you started working a while ago.
So, today we need you to stand up, and Think Differently.
When Jodi and I started the http://www.GetMomentum.com Leadership Academy, we knew we'd be teaching people more than just how to get things done. We wanted to work with you - as the executive coaches you never knew you needed - to help you progress on meaningful projects, in life AND at work.
There are three ways I know you can get momentum, starting today:
First, for 5-days, do things a way you normally don't.
If you normally plan your day out in the morning, do it the night before. If you normally talk with your spore about the tasks and transactions of life every night, do it only on Tuesday and Thursday his week. If you normally notice what's wrong with the projects your team is working on, find someone doing something right once a day, just for a week.
When you change the way you do things, what you do changes (and often for the better).
2. For the next 5 weeks, reach out and connect with one person a week who positively has influenced you ... who doesn't know you yet.
Meet an author. A local business owner. A celebrity, even. Follow them on Twitter, write them a review on the Internet. Invite all five of them to a #CoffeeChat (I do this at http://www.CoffeeWithWomack.com all the time).
When you change who you spend your time with, what you spend your time with changes.
And finally. Do things somewhere new.
Location > A plan
I find that when it is time to think, I need to be in a place that is conducive to me thinking. How about you? What would happen if you planned a Strategic Thinking session at your local library? What if you took 1-2 of your best clients out for a hike? What if you watched a documentary or a recorded conference session while sipping on your favorite beverage at a coffee shop or pub one day?
When you change where you think, what you think about changes.
What I know about how #momentum works is that it's a multi-faceted approach to being productive. Not just getting hints done. But, getting the right things done.
