    [14min] How long do new habits really take? It's not 21 days!

    [14min] How long do new habits really take? It's not 21 days!

    How long do new habits really take?

    21 days? Guess again.

    Research has shown that it takes on average much longer than that.

    But the real problem is impatience.

    We expect our new habits or change or activities that we are working on to be perfect immediately.

    We get impatient when we don't see results or evidence that things are working quickly.

    And when that happens we stop working on the habit because we think it's not working instead of pushing through a little longer.

    In this episode, I'm going to share the truth about how long it takes to form a new habit and what this can mean about our expectations of ourselves to see results quickly.

    [17min] What do you apologise for? It could be limiting your success

    [17min] What do you apologise for? It could be limiting your success

     Where in your life and work do you often find yourself apologising?
    Being late?
    Missed deadlines?
    Poor communication?
    Apologising is important and can build trust and respect in certain situations.
    BUT… when you are constantly apologising for the same thing over and over again, it can have the opposite effect.
    Because continuing to apologise for the same type of event is meaningless when there is no action to change your behaviour.
    In fact, it can hinder your success.

    In the episode you'll learn:

    A large part of why we are so stressed at work is because we think that we aren't achieving enough.

    Why do we do things we don't want to do

    Why do we do things we don't want to do

    Why do we do things we don’t want to do during our working day? Why do we do things that take us away from what we actually want to be doing.
    For instance:
    Why do we try and multi-task when we know it’s not beneficial?
    Why do we check our emails every 11 minutes instead of focussing and completing what’s in front of us?
    Why do we say yes to tasks that aren’t aligned with our strategic focus areas?
    Why do we get distracted so easily?
    Why do we do the quick fix task when we should rather delegate it to someone else?
    Why do we randomly grab our phones and scroll on social media for up to 2 hours every day?
    Why do we respond to emails, messages and calls when they could probably wait until later?
    Why do we accept and join every meeting request that comes in when we know we don’t really have to attend every single one?
    Most leaders and execs that I speak to tell me that they want to have more time for strategic work and thinking time. They want the space to plan and think more every week.

    The problem? Distractions and distracting activities that keep us busy.

    In this episode you'll discover:
    The real reason we are so easily distracted (it's not what you think)How to override your brain when you get distractedThe 6 steps you can take to stop doing the things you don't want to do so that you have more time for strategic and thinking work
