We have lost team members, gained others, and face the challenge of building amazing teams we had once before.

We are currently planning events differently, there isn’t an event that is absolutely similar to what it was pre-pandemic.Listening to your team and being attentive to their personal needs is very crucial at a time where people are sensitive to global events. When you are learning and taking risks at the same time, so encouraging vulnerability can allow teams to make mistakes gracefully.The difference between a successful team and a team that isn’t as successful is that they use crisis as a way to crystalize their purpose.

In this episode, I'll share with you three ways to be productive rather than spending your time being busy for the sake of being busy.Episode Highlights:Being busy is all about being occupied, but with what?

Stop doing all the busy things in your life. One of the main productivity killers is social media. Make sure to give yourself time limits on social media so that your time can be better spent in other places. Make sure that you are scheduling smart when it comes to your calendar. Remember there is a time and place for everything.Focus on a specific task instead of having your hands in too many things at one time. Focusing is more effective than multi-tasking.

In episode 43 we discussed the common internal oppositions that appear for us, and this week, we are discussing several external oppositions.Episode HighlightsSeeking the validation from others can help in some cases, however if validation isn’t favorable, it is important to know how to respond.

The Opposition Factor
Opposition is what happens when you start to move to completing your goals. This week's podcast discusses three common areas of opposition and what you can do to overcome them. Have you created a life plan yet? Well, creating a plan for where you want to go, only helps you as you journey to your destination. Consider listening to Episode 41 How to Create a Life Plan to Meet Your Goals to get started. Episode HighlightsAlmost always when we set out to create our goals, opposition will be a factor.The key is becoming aware of the areas of opposition so that you can easily move through it.Imposter syndrome is a common opposition that everyone suffers from. Imposter syndrome is when you feel you aren't worthy or enough to do this new thing you are looking to do.If you are dealing with imposter syndrome, the key thing is now you can create a new story for yourself instead of believing one that is made up.Comparing is another common opposition that most suffer from. Comparing is like imposter syndrome in that you look externally and use your perception against progress. The key with comparing to not let it get you into shame, but rather use your quest to gather inspiration from external examples, as inspiration only. The last common example is deflecting. This occurs when others share something positive about what they see about your change, but you humbly push their comments away.Deflecting can be conquered by a simple thank you. Let the positivity flow if you are making great traction on your goals.Finally be cautious of burnout when you are ramping up something new. There are ways to get traction in a healthy way versus it hurting you.
