    #092: How to Stay Mentally Fit

    Leaders love to see progress. But growth brings a whole new set of problems. You may find yourself stuck in reaction mode, feeling more like a fireman than a leader. Dealing with problems all day can drain your mental energy. After awhile, you may have no bandwidth left for vision and strategy.

Rather than feeling exhausted when you think about work, you’ll be energized by new possibilities. Try it, and get back in front of the change curve again!  
    Here’s a preview of this episode. 
    Why you must have a regular practice of intentional thought.  Why scheduled “think time” doesn’t always work.  Why your business demands a shift from doing to thinking.  One solid way to bake think time into your life.  How thought time gives your business an edge.  The kinds of questions you should be asking of yourself and business.  Why you need to be uninterrupted during your focused thought time.  Can focused thought be done with others, or only alone?  How outside input fuels your thought life.  The value of physical activity in activating your thought life.  Why serendipitous breakthroughs are not enough to fuel your business.  The simple practice that will help you think more intentionally.  Practical advice for people who have trouble writing down their thoughts.  The difference between reflective thinking and reactive thinking.  How the Hustle Fallacy inhibits your ability to think critically.  What critical thinking is and why it matters in your business.  The cause-and-effect chain from a leader’s thoughts to business results.  How asking different questions can transform your business results.  Once you’ve listened to this episode, here’s your next step. Ask yourself this simple question: What is my biggest obstacle to frequent, focused, intentional thinking, and what can I do about it? 
    You’ll be well on your way to solving that—and many other—problems.

Very Relevant for Today's Managers

I dealt with dissent and disagreement this week so this podcast is right on time. I still have to have the conversation with my team member so I will definitely use the techniquest taught in this the "How to Handle Dissent and Disagreement in Your Organization" podcast to difuse the situation.

Excellent Leadership Coaching

Just recently, I felt I was missing something in my career. I’m a District Admin in a public school and felt out of touch with how to speak the leadership language to other colleagues and with employees. I demonstrate and act everyday like a true leader but lacked the language component to speak it. This podcast has taught me so much more than I was expecting. Great listen, highly recommend.
