How To Build An Internal Locus of Control
Having an internal locus of control can change the trajectory of your day, your career, and your life to a significant degree. From reactive and uncertain to in-control and confident. Your locus of control is somewhere on the spectrum between external (things happen to me) and internal (I make things happen). Internal locus of control is realizing that you have choice, and then exercising the power to choose in any given moment. Cultivating an internal locus of control is a process that requires time and practice until it becomes a habit, and eventually integrates into your personality. In this episode, we'll explore five ways to build an internal locus of control. -- Resources: 1) Top Executive Locus of Control and Its Relationship to Strategy-Making, Structure, and Environment 2) Develop An Internal Locus of Control 3) A Study on Locus of Control and its Impact on Employees’ Performance 4) Culture and Entrepreneurial Potential - A 9 Country Study of Locus Of Control And Innovativeness -- Connect with me: Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ernestbarbaric/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/ebarbaric Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ebarbaric/ -- Leave a question or comment for the show: ArtOfMeaningfulWork.com

Make Your Next Move. 3 Ideas To Design Your Next Year.
In this episode you’ll learn three simple insights that will help you take control of your time, get more out of your waking hours, and do more meaningful work - in this year. 1) Learn to embrace your imperfections - they are what sets you apart from everyone else. 2) Prototype your way forward - rather than setting big goals for yourself and your business, and arrive dissapointed... make small tests and prototype instead. You'll enjoy the journey and arrive at a better destination. 3) Rocks. Pebbles. Sand - make time for the things that matter before your calendar gets filled up with meaningless and unproductive tasks. Book time off for family, unplugging, spending time in nature, working on your book, whatever. Make sure that 12 months from now you are not regretting how you spent your time. -- Links: Gifts Of Imperfection - Brene Brown: http://amzn.to/2CxMNGM Designing Your Life - Bill Burnett: http://amzn.to/2CwSogE Leave a podcast review: http://ernestbarbaric.com/itunes/ Connect with me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/ebarbaric

3 Lessons Learned By Interviewing Dozens Of Entrepreneurs in 2016
What did I learn by interviewing dozens of entrepreneurs, authors, thinkers, and creators in 2016? Throughout these conversations, there were three common threads that stood out. Listen to some of my favorite clips from previous guests as we cover: Start Now - Some of us tend to overanalyze and procrastinate. It stops us from starting and finishing projects. The antidote? Start now, and start small. It helps create momentum, and alleviates the fear of failure, and the never-ending pursuit of perfection that stops us from doing our work. Trust Your Gut - Success happens at the intersection of opportunity, the skills to take advantage of that opportunity, and trusting your instincts. Trusting your gut is trusting the collection of all your subconscious experiences collected over a lifetime. We repress this internal guidance system, and second-guess ourselves leading to poor choices and regret. One At A Time - Most of us are impatient. We want to reach success faster, sometimes without the patience required to pay our dues and work through the required process. We want to have the overnight success story, without doing the hard part of facing failure and persevering through the “through of sorrow”. Success is built one connection at a time, one step at a time, one day at a time. I will be implementing these lessons in my work, starting now. And I hope you will find them helpful as well. Here are my projects for 2017: Speaker School - speaking training for entrepreneurs and professionals. We are starting with a live 2-day workshop in Calgary, Canada and then moving the curriculum online. You can check out the first website iteration at: http://speakerschool.co/ Analog Camp - 2 day wilderness retreat for entrepreneurs and professionals. No connection. No cell phones. No distractions. A hand-picked selection of 12 people will go through a program that includes meditation, yoga, TED-style workshops, and dedicated Deep Work time. We are running a beta version in Kananaskis, Canada in March. For details, check out: http://analogcamp.ca/ TEDx - I will be speaking at TEDxCanmore on January 20th. My talk will focus on distractions that prevent us from doing meaningful work, and how to break free. This ties everything together. I will document the entire TED talk preparation process on Speaker School, and the topic speaks to the core of Analog Camp.
