    The Power of Process and Pattern with Michael Sherlock

    The Power of Process and Pattern with Michael Sherlock

    When you fall out of your usual patterns, do you feel rundown or like you're out of your zone of excellence?
    There are moments when having a routine might seem a bit boring, but one thing we often overlook is that when we're juggling various tasks at once without a clear pattern, we end up losing track of things along the way.
    In this episode, we're reminded of the importance of having a planning process and why it's crucial for us to have a list of things to check off. We explore the value of maintaining a routine and how it can positively impact our productivity and well-being.

    Mid-day Assessment with Michael Sherlock

    Mid-day Assessment with Michael Sherlock

    Have you ever taken time to ask yourself how your day is unfolding?
    Taking time to ask yourself what is going well in your day so far gives you a sense of completion. With the same energy, writing down what isn’t going on so well, shows your awareness of yourself and the tasks that you want to get off your desk. 
    When you reflect and see the good and the bad of your work so far, what does it accomplish? What do you feel you could do differently if you change the tactics of what didn’t work well in the morning?
    In this episode we will show you how a simple Mid-Day Assessment can have a powerful impact on your career.
    Listen in!
    We would like to thank Heather Dominick: https://shockyourpotential.com/highly-sensitive-entrepreneurs-heather-dominick/ for the concept of the Mid-Day Assessment.
