Create an “Idea Jar”

“Oh, where did I put that great idea?”

Is it hard for you to keep track of your ideas?


Create a single repository:

Stop the frustration of searching.
Be more time efficient.
Don’t lose or forget ideas.
USE: An app like Trello or Evernote
A spreadsheet
A journal (analog is ok too!)
Notes on your phone

Mindset

Keep your thoughts positive. Your thoughts become your words become your actions.

See the good. FOCUS on: Abundance, not scarcity.

Solutions, not problems.

Positive, not negative.

What you can control, not what you can’t.

Listen More. Talk Less.

Do you dominate conversations? Interrupt? Give people a chance to have their say.
 
It’s a powerful strategy.
By giving up the talking stick, you can:
Learn things that you didn’t know.
Build better relationships.
Get help solving your problems.
And when you do speak,
people will be more attentive.

Escape email jail!

How many times do you check your email each day?
 
Schedule email time: try 1 am hour and 1 pm hour.

Shut down email when you are doing something else.

Don’t check work email before 8am or after 8pm.

How much more can you accomplish once you free yourself?
