The 90 Day Challenge!

With less than 90 days to go before the year pulls to a close…chase those goals!!!

In my years of working on and researching this whole goal setting business, I notice that it can be a rough ride every once in a way. And when I reach this part of the year, I spend some time reflecting on the year that has gone by – what I set out to achieve, where I am at, what items are off the check list, which ones are a work in progress and which ones are still cold as hell!

It is easier to beat yourself up at this stage, if you focus on what has not got done yet. Especially for those of us who are super tough on ourselves, it can even be devastating.

Here’s a simple way to pick yourself up, and make the next 90 days count!

Consolidate – I cannot emphasize enough the magic of this exercise and the effect it has on your energy. When you start by noting down all that you have got done so far, appreciate your hard work and journey, your energy levels are far higher than when you started. This makes it a great frequency to be in, as you plan forward, instead of allowing self-criticism take over and really plummet your vibration. So keep it high!!!

Re-strategize – There is no rule in the book that says you cannot alter your goals or revise them any time of the year. Remember, we set goals, so we enjoy the journey, feel calm, get a sense of control on where we are headed and what we want to experience at the end of the day. So it is perfectly fine to alter them if you feel you’ve outgrown them, they are no longer meaningful to you, life has evolved and your priorities have changed or any other genuine reason you feel drawn to, to make a shift.

Fuel up – Now that you have re planned your goals, stopped the self-beating and pulled up your socks for the next leg of this journey – fasten your seat belt, plan in detail, schedule blocks of time each day to work on the goals, use tools like the hour of power to keep you fueled up and make you super productive.

Get relentless – Remove all that comes in the way of you achieving those goals now! Use the tools, do the drill and above all simply become RELENTLESS. Note your progress each day, keep an eagle’s eye on where you are spending your maximum time, prioritize and say NO to anything that takes you away from your goal, just for these 90 days.

Winners Never Quit, Quitters Never Win – Vince Lombardi

See, the reason why these 90 days are important is because I believe this is your opportunity to taste blood. An entire year to wake up at 5 am, do the work out, chase the goals you set and keep to the regiment can sometimes feel very uphill and long drawn. So when we chunk it down to these last 90 days, the mind feels – ‘oh this is just temporary and a short goal’, hence the resistance automatically comes down and gives you a window of opportunity to go all out….like you do in a sprint! Give it your best shot, shoot through the finish lines and experience a quantum leap first hand.

To all the naysayers – I challenge you on this one! Try it!
To all the ones who’ve given up – come on pick yourselves up! Just because you couldn’t do it earlier, does not mean you can’t do it now. Shut out the voice of judgement.
To the ‘I can do this’ lot of you – ready, steady and go go go!!!!

To the life of your dreams,

7 fail proof tips to Mastery – Part 1 of 2

by Leena on April 21, 2018 No comments

Every champion needs some rest, some hand holding, some reflection time and most importantly constant doses of how to think differently. I am super excited to share with you 7 such tips over the next few blogs to re ignite you and get you going on that route to chasing those dreams and making them a reality.

TIP 1/7 – GET AWAY FROM YOUR WORLD

Do this to help you build mastery like never before. You can’t do the finest work of your career staying in your city. I’ve found I get big things done when I’m on airplanes or transiting cities, or staying at a hotel. It’s a total needle-mover to book a fantastic room in a place you adore and then put the “do not disturb” on the phone and door for a week. Yes, take it off so your room gets cleaned 😉 And put your devices in a plastic bag with a label on it that says “My Masterpiece is more important than my email!”

Just think about it: in a hotel room, no one can distract you, you can order room service when you need to, sleep when you need to, you can work out when you need to work out and you can isolate yourself so that Transient Hypofrontality [the neurobiological state of genius that we ALL have but so few know how to access] just shows up and helps you think beyond where you are envision a life you so want to make a reality.Some people say “but a great room and holiday costs too much.” Think of what Warren Buffett says: focus on value versus cost. If you do work that wows a whole industry and makes you a legend in your field, was the investment returned 1000 times over? You can’t become a history-maker stuck in tiny thinking. You just can’t.

TIP 2/7 – FIGHT TO BE DARK

I get that people need your attention and your time at work. And finding time to do work that truly matters is lost in being available to others. Go to war. Fight to go dark and be completely unavailable. Distractions are costing you your genius. The business won’t burn down and your team will figure it out. You doing masterful work is all that matters here. Trust me on this. Be nearly totally unavailable. Just watch what ideas start downloading and just see the quality of your output. Yes i can hear your resistance – saying it’s impossible, this is fictitious advice, wishful thinking – just for today, what if you choose to go dark and see what happens when cut out all distractions…it will be there for you to see.

You’ve got one life, live it well, with your priorities right. There will be times when things go awry, how soon can you bounce back on course…and get back to fighting to make sure you get your time block to do your genius work.

TIP 3/7 – BECOME A SPARTAN

Don’t fill your work space with things you don’t need! De clutter your desk of those stacks of papers, files, visiting cards, notes and post its that have been there for months. All they do is gape at you day in and day out, make you feel guilty for not having competed those tasks…and there goes your chance to any kind of mastery!

You’re like a Spartan soldier now. Keep as little in your personal work space as possible. The place where you breed the ideas and execute on the concepts so you raise the entire world. Keep it pure. Keep it lean. Make sure you de clutter your work space before you begin work each day. It’s a great way to clear your space of negative vibes and allow space for positive work to get done.

I hope you find these tips epic as I did. Each one is a gem and a complete game changer should you choose to work with them, slowly and steadily each day.

Why plan?

by Leena on December 3, 2015 No comments

Personal planning and goal-setting are not sexy topics. But they are incredibly important and central to an extraordinary experience of life. I see it time and time again amongst those who are the best of the best: lots of time spent articulating a clear and detailed vision for what the key areas of their lives will look like and then a written plan with the vision broken down into sequenced goals so that the vision isn’t so overwhelming and so the big picture is neatly chunked into manageable steps to drive daily action.

One of the best effects of planning that I’ve discovered is what it does to my mind. Let me put it this way: few things focus the mind as well as setting plans on to paper and then sequencing them into goals. The very act of doing it heightens your awareness as to what’s most important. And with better awareness, you will make better choices. And as you make better choices, you are certain to experience better results.

So today, give yourself a gift: take out a nice, crisp white sheet of paper. Sharpen a pencil. And then start writing about the life you want to create. It’s a lot easier than you may think.
