Coach Your Brain!

Feeling like your business life is full of distractions?  Just our digital devices alone make us hard to focus.  Now think about all you have to juggle during your working hours and how staying focused and productive is often extremely hard to do. As an Entrepreneur, you have to worry about employees, customers/clients, phone calls, follow-ups, emails, meetings, inventory, and the list goes on and on… Here are some tips that may help your brain multitask without becoming overloaded or overwhelmed! Your brain gets excited when you are doing a lot of tasks at once, but the downside is that we often make mistakes while multitasking.  So here are some ways in which we can coach our brain to focus:
  1.  At the beginning of your day, work on your toughest tasks first.  As the day goes on, our brain gets tired.  So leave the more mindless work for later in the day.
  2. Find your ultimate “focus” time each day, and work on your toughest tasks at that time.  Do you work better in the morning?  Are you more focused in the evening? Choose your time and allow yourself to coach your brain back to focus mode.
  3. Practice concentration by giving yourself time to focus on only ONE task at a time.  This helps us to retrain our brain from distraction mode to focus mode. If you put aside 30 minutes each day to “focus” your brain, then that short distraction time will allow yourself to stay more focused throughout the day.
Our brains are mainly trained to be unfocused because we spend so much time multitasking.  It’s time to coach your brain into a new pattern so focusing isn’t so hard and multitasking becomes easier.  Your owe it to yourself…and your business! PJ's New Pic (smaller) ActionCoach-logo

When NICE isn’t always BETTER

Sometimes hearing the truth can be painful.  As a business coach, it’s important to speak the truth to help business owners improve. They don’t always want to hear it, but it’s what they need.  I can’t be selfish…worrying how they feel about me just so I can avoid confrontation.  I care about the other person, so I need to tell them like it is. Working with business owner I often see how NICE they are to their team members.  If a team member is irresponsible, and the owner cares for that team member, and for the rest of the team, then clear rules should be set. The owner should confront those who fall short, and openly communicate with them to correct the behavior and create responsible team members. If the owner avoids the problem, then he/she is sending a message to all team members that rules don’t matter and that performance and responsibility doesn’t factor into the business.  If this happens, then the owner is being selfish.  Better performing team members will leave, non-responsible team members will continue to fall short, and the business will fail. Therefore, being NICE isn’t always BETTER.  Don’t be selfish when it comes to your business! Speak the truth!  Address problems as they arise!  Don’t be mean and rude, but don’t avoid confrontation just to be NICE.  Care enough about your business and your team members to tell them like it is!  They will thank you in the long run, and so will your business!

YOUR CHALLENGE:  Try one unselfish act in your business!  What is the outcome?  Are you playing too nice?  Or do you care about your team members? If you would like further information or you have any questions about this blog, you can email me at pjweiland@actioncoach.com or call 847-739-3079.
