Effective tactics can really help with you to change your daily habits and thinking for the better. We all want to improve the way we do things in our business and our daily lives. If it makes us more effective then its worth looking at how we implement good effective tactics of our own.
I recently completed some training with Brendon Burchard, called Advanced Performance Planning, where he shared 8 tools to help us to change. It gets you thinking when you make the time to look a what these tactics are.
8 Effective Tactics To Help You Change
Begin Where You Are
Reflect and ask yourself where you are right now including your business, your health, relationships, family life etc. Is everything ticking like clockwork or do you need to work on some of them? Separate them out and make a list of how you’re doing in each area and see what needs some attention.
Do you have anything that reminds you to do something? I have an alarm on my phone to remind me to drink more water. You can set alarms for anything. Do you remember before phones when people used to tie knots in their handkerchief ? Whatever works for you, its good to have something that reminds you.
3. Why Do You Do What You Do?
If you know why you are doing what you do thats awesome. Do you have a team? Maybe you can decide to inspire them today or inspire yourself to do something. Brendon uses the term “role model”. Ask yourself what kind of role model you want to be and why. Plan your day and think about what you are going to do for you and/or someone else.
4. Set 3 Goals Every Day
Habits tell us we remember the number 3 very well. Set three goals that you are determined to hit everyday. As I mentioned before, I have an alarm to drink more water. I have to set that as a goal because I just don’t drink enough. Yours might be a call to your team, or write a blog post, or inspire someone you care about. The 3 things can be anything you want but get into the habit of setting yourself 3 goals a day that you achieve.
5. Your Calendar
I am learning more and more how important our calendar or diary is. If we write down or record our plans they become more real and psychologically tell us they have to be done. Keeping a calendar or diary is a habit well worth keeping. For instance, if you want to become healthier, put the habits in your diary of how you’re going to achieve it. If its not in your calendar then the likelihood is it won’t get done.
Mixing with a community of people who are on a similar path to you is so necessary. We love being in a positive place so we can share ideas, grow and cheer each other on. Its why we love mastermind groups, or going to events. If you don’t belong to one, create your own. I set up a women’s group and I am also in a couple of masterminds. They are so positive and helpful.
Its only recently that I have realised the importance of how our health affects everything we do. Our mindset, our performance…..everything is affected by our fitness and energy levels. Be more committed to staying health and fitter. Pay attention to your nutrition, fitness and push yourself a little further. I am not one for going to the gym so I have decided I will take time out every day to go for a long power walk. If our health is not good, it will affect our business performance and our relationships at home.
8. Keep A Journal
Use a journal to record your thoughts, your actions, your plans. Write down everything you can. In a few months time they are a brilliant way of seeing how you’ve moved forward. Its therapeutic to record things as well. I always feel better when I have written stuff down.
There is a lot more that I could add to the post, like creating better daily habits. Habits are hard to break, good and bad. Get rid of the bad habits and replace them with new, more positive ones to help you change.
