Hi Team...

I hope the first week of February was a winner for you...

Over the last two weeks though, I have noticed a theme: FATIGUE.

Fatigue is a motivation killer. And, we can often get fatigued from being in our own heads too much, too long, too frequently.

As I get to coach teams and individuals around the World, it is a common theme I am hearing and seeing... yet, it is too early, yet too common this time of year.

Coach, it is only February!

Yes- and how we feel in February is the result of January...

Some people put so much pressure on themselves to start the year well- that they over work.. they push themselves to their limits and as a result, come February, they are smoked, tired, fatigued, burnt-out, not feeling creative or ambitious, and needing a recharge...

Think of your life as a plate.

If you see space on the plate, most likely, after eating you will not get full.

But, if your plate is filled to the brim, and piled 4 inches high, your plate and you are at capacity. Most likely, you will feel shot after eating and will want to do nothing else but rest... and fall into a deep slumber..

Look at the plate as you and your work capacity...

We can only take on too much...

We all have a certain capacity..

If we pile on even a little more when we have a full plate- things start falling off the plate and onto the floor...

Got it?

I don't want that for you...

You should not want that either...

So, if you are somebody living in a state of reactive, overwhelm, it is time to start asking yourself:

What is on my plate?

Does it need to be there?

But most importantly, ask yourself:

What are the few things I need to do each day to be great?

And when you figure that out, you will have simplified your life, your thoughts, and increased your effectiveness...

As a result, it will calm you and your over-active mind....

Most leaders deal with a racing mind...

Always thinking, calculating, projecting and forecasting....

That happens because we are always working to protect ourselves... and our downside...

Think about that: You are doing it to PROTECT yourself...

That indicates you are not feeling safe in some way...

When you get to the root of "why" you feel unsafe- then, the calm sets in and you can begin to operate from a place of passion and freedom vs. pressure and stress.

Got it?

More to come on this next week....

Let's go...

Win Today.
