    "1-2-3 Jump!" I planted a seed 9 months ago

    "1-2-3 Jump!" I planted a seed 9 months ago

    Nine months ago, I recorded a short video for my YouTube channel. It had nearly zero views.

    The same video - on How to create a Zoom meeting using Google calendar, has been viewed 3,150 times.

    My YouTube channel is currently getting 3000 views a day.

    I say this, not to boast, but to show that sometimes you have to plant a seed and have no idea if it will bear fruit, or when that might happen.

    The world has now had its rugged pulled out from under it, and we have no option but to adjust our footing. That may mean taking a jump in a direction that we never thought we would.

    It could mean revamping your business model, or delivering in a way that you never would have done before.

    What are you doing now that you thought you'd never be able to do?

    Group call #002 2020-03-29

    As we navigate the first few weeks of (re-)building our businesses and getting used to most people staying home, it's a chance for developing some habits.  On our group call today, we spoke about how to build some new habits. What we can learn from a lime tree that has just been transplanted. How you might learn a new skill, such as learning to cook better.  

    11:00 What can you learn from the transplant of a lime tree 

    22:30 The power of checklists (even if you're not a checklist person!) 

    28:20 How boiling an egg can help you build processes 

    33:10 The value of doing something badly 

    34:30 How to assess risk and opportunities in your business 

    38:35 The impact of procrastination 

    40:30 "I could never do ... " 

    45:40 Why confidence is not a great measure of how you're doing 

    46:01 How I got confident on video in 10 minutes 

    48:08 How video confidence helped me with writing confidence 

    49:10 Why I don't measure success by the number of views or comments I get 

    55:00 Switching from "I can't cook" to becoming a more creative cook 

    59:30 Atomic Habits by James Clear - working example

    Teachable moments, and brick-by-brick lessons

    Teachable moments, and brick-by-brick lessons

    My 9-year-old daughter and I had to clean up the rumpus room (the children's recreation room). Rather than doing it myself, or nagging my daughter, or leaving it undone, I found a better way of doing it by breaking it down into tiny steps.

    I think this is a valuable approach, especially for us now as a society, because we're seeing the importance of daily habits.

    Another teachable moment I had was with another daughter - she's 12. She transplanted a lime tree on the weekend. I thought of this as a metaphor for what's happening to us.  

    Transplanting can put a lot of stress on a tree.  A bit like what's just happened to us all.  

    We hope the tree will do well, but most of the improvement will be barely noticeable.  In fact, most of the work is going to happen under the ground.  Just like us.

    Pulling a single leaf off the tree won't make much difference.  A bit like a little habit that we miss for a day. Or a sharp word that gets said.  

    Each time it happens, it's pulling off just one leaf. No big deal, until so many leaves get pulled off that the tree starts to fight just to survive.  

    So, too, we don't see the improvements of tiny, daily improvements. 

    Little things.   

    😀 a smile.   

    ✅ a refusal to stress about something we can't control. 

     📆 an appointment kept, even with ourselves.  

    ⏳ a 15-minute "no-procrastination" date with yourself.  



    Step by step. Under the ground. Miss a day? That's just one leaf. It doesn't kill the whole tree.  Limes are on the way.

    Just when business was picking up ...

    Everything looked like it was on the up-and-up, and now this! Just when you thought business was picking up, everything seems lost.

    Everything is not lost.

    You still have your:


    relationships
    skills
    insights
    versatility

    And you know how to solve problems.

    There are a lot of problems out there right now.

    Catch Your Breath 001: free coaching circle

    Catch Your Breath 001: free coaching circle

    We got a free coaching group together to help us communicate through COVID-19. 

    We talked about how we're managing in the Coronavirus situation. 

    Two from Arizona, one from New Jersey who is in lockdown, and myself from Sydney.  People are wondering how we keep coaching through COVID-19, and connecting when the Coronavirus is looming over us.  

    Coaching and connecting are still possible!  Watch the group discussion yourself.  

    We shared some ideas on how to get through this, and particularly looked at ways of serving others while keeping ourselves safe and not endangering others.

    If you want to watch the conversation on YouTube, here it is: https://youtu.be/1FGuHi8QjZY
