Personal Energy Paradox: Your Path to Success – Better Than Time Management

TomSpeakingPowerTimeM_2
Tom Marcoux speaks on “Power Time Management”

“I feel overwhelmed. If I could just get my time management to work better,” Alicia, an audience member, said during my speech “Power Time Management.”

As I responded to her, I realized that so many of us have no buffer of personal energy to deal with all that presses on us. Then I realized that Personal Energy is much more important than lists of goals and tasks. Often, when people talk about needing to do time management better, they’re really talking about …

  • Help me overcome procrastination
  • I’m stuck. I have too much to do, and I feel overwhelmed

No simple to-do list with help with that. Instead, we need to develop a personal energy buffer. I’m sharing new insights in my new VIDEO “Personal Energy Paradox: Your Way to Success – Better than Time Management.” It’s Episode 33 of our YouTube Channel “Introverts Own Your Voice.” Please subscribe. You’ll be supporting me, Johanna and our message. In the video below, I provide some eye-opening insights and methods.

You will gain so much because nearly every week we have a new video that will improve your skills so you’ll get that important “yes” you need for your business — to get investors, crucial team members and clients.

many happy moments,

Tom

How to Get People to Trust You and Create Real Success

ConvinceInvestorAnnounce“Can you help me connect with appropriate investors?” a young startup company leader, Murray, asked me.

To be helpful, I asked him a couple of relevant questions to vet him–so I could be sure that he was ready and appropriate for me to connect with others.

He choked.

It’s understandable. Years ago, I choked when I did not have the coaching, rehearsal and preparation to interact effectively when meeting investors for the first time.

Warm Up Your Relationships in Business and Life – SEE VIDEO

“I’m concerned that people don’t warm up to me,” Kevin, a client, said.
“How do you feel about adding a bit of humor to your interactions?” I replied.

“Bad. I’m not good at being funny,” Kevin said.

“Wow. That’s some intense energy. Okay. I’m not talking about telling jokes,” I began. “Humor can include how you tell stories that have some lightness to them. Warming up relationships includes shifting away from having to be perfect all the time.” 

Here is my Episode #2 of “Introverts Own Your Voice” that includes “Warm Up Your Relationships – Use Humor – How to Be Funny.” My co-host is Johanna E. Mac Leod.

Use the Hidden Secret to Catapult Your Success

IntroFormulaGetClientsLogo
The Introvert’s Formula to Get Clients – online course – Next Session – June 11, 2018 

“You’re wrong!” Susan’s mother said with venom.

“I’m different,” my client, Susan, replied, firm and steady.

When Susan later told me how she remained calm and assertive, I replied, “That’s great. You had a great moment there.”

Susan and I had been working on her rehearsals, preparing her to respond skillfully in conflict situations.

Similar situations rise up in business when tension is high, and a great leader must respond skillfully.

Later, I was reflecting on assertiveness and the important difference: An Excuse versus An “Adapt-Step.”

It’s important for us to note:

An Excuse stops our progress cold.
Versus
An Adapt-Step helps us deal with a tough reality and still move forward.

Here are examples:

  • An Excuse: I don’t feel comfortable at networking events. (Result: I avoid them.)
  • An Adapt-Step: Networking events cost me personal energy [a tough reality for an introvert]. I set boundaries and stay for only 1 to 2 hours. And I am choosy about only attending the most important networking events for my business success.

I have been thinking a lot about the “Adapt-Step” because that is a vital portion of my online course The Introvert’s Formula to Get Clients – Next Session Begins June 11th. (If interested in this online course, send an email to tomsupercoach@gmail.com — and become eligible for a discount.)

I’m an Introvert. There, I said it. I’ve learned to overcome “excuses.”

Recently, I replied to a client’s question with: “I broke into three industries cold (no contacts): feature film, speaking and academia. Not bad for an introvert.”

My friend, I encourage you to pause now and use a sheet of paper. Write the headings of two parallel columns: 3 Excuses and 3 Adapt-Steps. Write down three examples from your current life in the 3 Excuses column. Then brainstorm and write 3, 6 or 9 possible Adapt-Steps you could take.

Successful people I’ve interviewed report that they face fear and personal excuses. Then they transform the situation by listing their next actions (what we call Adapt-Steps).

They take action.

I emphasize: Confidence is not comfort. Instead focus on these actions: Get the coaching, do the rehearsals and take action using your next Adapt-Steps.

Special Note: A special form of an Adapt-Step is trimming things from your life that drain your energy. Ask yourself: “Does this strengthen me?” Then make good decisions. Perhaps, you’ll limit your exposure to certain negative people.

Warmly,
Tom

Secrets to Get More Done and Banish Feeling Overwhelmed

fire1
Learn about “Extreme Confidence” – Free Webinar – Feb. 28, 2018, hosted by Tom Marcoux

“It’s too complicated and I feel confused. I just want some clarity,” my client, Matthew, said.

“I hear you. We’ve talked about your packed To-Do List. I’ve learned that a To-Do list is often a Guilt-List,” I replied.

It’s valuable to pull out the most important tasks from your complicated and crowded To-Do List.

When you do this, you get clarity, and you guard your personal energy. Bonus!–You banish feeling overwhelmed.

We’ll use the F.O.C.U.S. process:

F – Find options
O – organize by the most important
C – count on three
U – uncover your results
S – strategize for “droppables”

1, Find options
(Tool: Consider Box)

What’s most important for you to do today—or this week?

So many ideas are vague, and you’ll ultimately discard them. You don’t want them draining your energy nor cluttering your To-Do List.

Place them in the Consider Box.

With my own coach, I mention some ideas for future projects and future marketing plans. I note them and put them aside “into the Consider Box.”

It’s important to guard your personal energy. When an idea/task is in the Consider Box, it is not active and you avoid feeling guilty about not getting around to it.

What do you want to put into your Consider Box?

2. Organize by the most important
(Tool: Progress One Page)

Something is the most important for you. Use one page (your Progress One Page) to track your progress. Check off that you worked on the one task each day. Some of my clients track their daily exercise on one page (taped to their bathroom mirror).

Jerry Seinfeld gave a young comic Brad Isaac a tool that has become known as “Jerry Seinfeld’s Productivity Secret.”

Jerry said: “Put a big wall calendar for a year on a wall. For every day you do your writing, you get to put a big red X over that day. After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain. Don’t break the chain.”

Using the Progress One Page follows the pattern that Jerry talked about.

******BREAKING NEWS! FEB. 28, 2018 — FREE WEBINAR — LEARN ABOUT “EXTREME CONFIDENCE” AND EFFECTIVE PERSUASION … and more. ******

3. Count on three
(Tool: Top  3 Sheet)

For example, at one point, I held certain priorities:

  • Revise my novel
  • Write a webinar
  • Revise my leadership book

With my Top 3 Sheet, I made sure to do these tasks every day and check them off.

The Top 3 Sheet is one page in which you list your top three most important tasks, and you check them off daily. Some of my clients keep their Top 3 Sheet on a corkboard where they can see it daily.

I have a phrase: Make it a game you can win.

4. Uncover your results
(Tool: Evaluation Box)

One of my clients identified three top priorities for the week: a) Health, b) Efforts that bring in clients and c) Long-term, enjoyable work.

Every week, we went over her list. She would apply an evaluation of her weekly progress per her three top priorities:

Green – good
Yellow – caution
Red – it’s a problem; fix this.

The power of this Evaluation Box system is that you’re holding yourself accountable. You stay aware of what you’re doing and what you’re failing to do.

You’ll find that using this pattern of awareness leading to correction to be helpful.

5. Strategize for “droppables”
(Tool: Select Droppables)

“The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do. ” – Michael Porter

“Deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do.”— Steve Jobs

We can’t do it all. Not at one point in time. And, some tasks/projects become obsolete. At one point, I had two major projects TimePulse and Jack AngelSword. These are entertainment franchises that will feature books/ screenplays/graphic novels/toys and more.

My intuition gave me a question to ask new interns working with my company: “Which would you rather work on TimePulse or Jack AngelSword?” Unanimously, the new interns said, “Jack AngelSword.”

My entertainment franchise work is for young people and others. On hearing such feedback, I realized that I preferred to work on Jack AngelSword, too. (This year, I’m releasing two novels featuring Jack AngelSword.)

So, I completed a book (a collection of my short fiction) that had three TimePulse stories in it. And then, I made TimePulse a droppable. That is, I dropped TimePulse from my company’s schedule.

At another time, I had 14 projects on my corkboard. I dropped six and quickly completed four projects. Then, I carried onward with four.

If you feel overwhelmed, see what you can make into a “droppable.”

In summary, be sure to focus on the most important.

The Tools I shared are:

  • Consider Box
  • Progress One Page
  • Top 3 Sheet
  • Evaluation Box
  • Select Droppables

Tom

Use the Secret to Influence Others to Great Success

Risk
Tom Marcoux says, “Rise up. Build great relationships for success and happiness.”

“It’s my business partner who is causing all of the trouble,” Cynthia, an audience member, said—seeking my guidance after one of my speeches. “She is the one who needs to change.”

Just about every individual I’ve met has someone in their lives who is “causing trouble” and “who needs to change.”

“To create sustainable innovations … connect with one another first, before trying to solve a problem.” – Michael J. Gelb

As the Spoken Word Strategist and Executive Coach, I focus on helping people communicate so well that they create healthy and productive connections.

We cannot wait for others to change … when often they have no incentive to change.

A Secret: To create better in your life, you must lead yourself.

In my speech about “The RoiLeader,” I emphasize that one must relate well. ROI refers to “return on investment.” Our best investments are in our own skills and in the person we’re talking to.

I break down R.O.I as Relate, Optimize and Intuit.

Here, we’ll talk about Relate.

How do you relate to yourself? Do you listen to your own feelings? Or do you stuff them down and ignore them?

Your ability to relate to others begins with your ability to know the truth in yourself and to be supportive of your own health and happiness. From a solid starting point, we then seek to effectively influence others.

Psychiatrist and Professor Robert J. Waldinger of Harvard Medical School notes the results of an on-going 77 year-long study of happiness: “The good life is built with good relationships.”  

I’m going to briefly introduce elements of excellent leadership and relating. We often appreciate those leaders who are C.A.L.M. in the face of adversity.

C – call on intuition
A – agree
L – listen
M – measure

 

  1. Call on intuition

Many top leaders mention how they use “gut feelings” to make critical decisions.

 “Often you have to rely on intuition.” – Bill Gates

 “Intuition becomes increasingly valuable in the new information society precisely because there is so much data.” – John Naisbitt

 “The only real valuable thing is intuition.” – Albert Einstein

When it comes to relating well, we must pay close attention. When you listen to the person’s vocal tone, the pacing of their speech, and their words, you’re getting closer to understanding what they want. Add in observations of the body language and actions. The person might say, “I’m okay” – but your intuition may be warning you that something is going on beneath the surface communication.

Researcher and author Gerd Gigerenzer identifies intuition as connected with data that has not risen to the conscious level. He notes situations in which a person had a “bad feeling” but could not give a persuasive, rational argument. Then the company went ahead into what became a business disaster, and the person’s “bad feeling” proved an accurate assessment.

Be sure to pay close attention to the other person, and make sure to listen to your own intuitive impressions.

How can you make space so you can listen to your own intuition?

 

  1. Agree

“Agreements are courageous and creative. They honor the other person. They are coauthored between two composers of the agreement. People give their word and keep it. People honor agreements to a far greater degree than they live up to expectations.” – Steve Chandler

Years ago, I learned that the leader does well to make sure that the team member makes a  real commitment. I have asked, “Do you agree that you have all that you need to get the 1-2-3 Project done by 4 pm on Thursday?”

The person might come back with “Wait a minute. I can’t agree to that because I won’t get Part B from Gerald in time.” This is vital information.

I’ve also learned to ask for further confirmation—because some people are too optimistic in their time projections.

Make sure that you make things work so you get the reply of “I agree” from the other person.

How will you implement agreements in your work life?

 

  1. Listen

Listening is the beginning of leadership. You need to know the person you’re leading. He or she needs to know that they’ve been heard. (This is so important to me that I wrote a book, Connect: High Trust Communication for Your Success in Business and Life.) I’ve emphasized with clients and graduate students: When you’re listening, you’re winning.

 Many of us are quick to judge another person’s comment—so fast it seems like a reflex. Learn to pause, take a breath, ask a gentle question and listen some more. Then, provide a Reflective Reply, which sounds like: “That sounds like it was disappointing.” You reflect the person’s feelings.

How will you slow down and listen more to people?

 

  1. Measure

Team members count on the leader to demonstrate the team’s current status. Are we making progress?

“People wouldn’t go bowling if they couldn’t see the pins drop.” – Zig Ziglar

Make measurements as clear and simple as possible.

My phrase is: Keep Score and Achieve More.

The team leader helps everyone get clear on what’s necessary for vital progress. Leaders also help the team members celebrate incremental progress. This is crucial since much of what we do involves a “long haul.”

How will you emphasize simple and clear measurements?


In summary, when you want to improve your leadership skills (as a team leader—or even as a leader of your own life), focus on:

C – call on intuition
A – agree
L – listen
M – measure

Tom

Use the One Step That Brings Your Higher Success

10-11-17)PowerUpYourBrand_ClientsBUP
Attend Oct. 25, 2017 – FREE Workshop “Power Up Your Brand: Attract Clients”

“I’ve got too much to do!” my client, Amanda, said.
“I hear you. It’s in your voice. You’re feeling overwhelmed, right?” I said.
“I can’t get it all done!”
“That’s true,” I said.

As the Spoken Word Strategist and an Executive Coach, my clients expect me to tell them the truth and cut through the cluttered-thinking we may fall into.

Do you notice these details? …

  • You canNOT get it all done
  • Some areas, you do well
  • Some areas, you’re clogged up
  • A bit of insight does not kick you into action

It’s not insight that gets you off the floor.

It’s a System. Don’t make a big production out of the idea of a system.

Let’s call “system” something else: An Effective Pattern.

Every day, I write. My clients ask:

  • Tom, could you help me with my speech, website and press release?
  • Would you help me with sound bites for my appearances on TV, radio and podcasts?
  • Could you help me write the video so I get sales?
  • Help me write my Online Course, okay?
  • You mentioned that this book needs to be strategically written and positioned so I’ll be speaking at conferences, working with high-end clients and appearing in the media. What do you suggest?

I have no hesitation. I jump in and write. Not because I feel like it. (I often do not feel like writing.) I have a full menu of Effective Patterns so I write immediately.

Now, let’s add an Effective Pattern to your day:

Reduce Feeling Overwhelmed with this One Step

I’ll now share an Effective Pattern (system).

Here’s One Step that will get some things off your scheduleSort your tasks into two categories (I call them “boxes”). Picture that you have two boxes in front of you. Box #1 is your “Consider Box.” Box #2 is your “OTA Commitments box.*”

** OTA stands for “On Time for Airport” Commitment. I don’t know anyone who does not take special care to get to the airport early to ensure they board their flight.

In essence, you choose what you will consider doing at some point, but you’re not going to fret about these things this current week.

You’ll save your precious energy because you’ll avoid criticizing yourself for failing to get everything done.

Secondly, you focus on your most important commitments. For example, at this moment, I’m writing 2,000 words a day (for my 45th book). This is an OTA Commitment.

My clients reduce a significant portion of their workload by making that choice to separate things they’re considering from that which is essential.

For example, I canNOT reach out to everyone I have met who might need my special combination of Spoken Word Strategist/Executive Coach work.

I must focus on my Highest Priorities. I contact first, the most promising people to be a match for me as their Spoken Word Strategist – Executive Coach.

Now, it’s your turn. You can reduce your stress by sorting “stuff to consider” and OTA Commitments.

Answer these questions:

  • What’s most important to you about ______ (your career, your family, bringing love into your life …)?
  • What Top 3 Things can you do this week that will make the Best Difference?
  • What can you “toss into your Consider Box” – and off your plate?
  • What’s in your OTA Commitments box?

Sometimes, I’m working with a client and I have to say something brief to shake the person up.

My client, Amanda, runs her own business. She said, “I don’t know what to do next.”
“You’re asking about your business, right?” I ask.
“Yes.”
“Here’s a principle related to keep your good company going.”
“What is it?”
“Go get the money.”

I explain that, during work hours, the thing to do is get the money: Send the invoice, make the marketing call, create your online course, rehearse your speech and so forth.


Focus on The Power of Three

I encourage my clients to focus on “The Power of Three.” By this I mean, identify three most important steps … or three speech titles … or three most important marketing methods.

I’ve seen several other business owners get stuck in a pattern of “Oh, look! That new thing is shiny.” They do a little of one marketing method, get bored, and search for something new and ‘shiny’—the next class or book.

Instead, you’ll massively improve your productivity by choosing THREE, and you’ll avoid spreading yourself too thin.

In summary, the One Step that Brings You Higher Success is to sort your tasks into the Consider Box and the OTA Commitments Box.

Focus! Take action on your Top Three Most Valuable Tasks.

Tom

Tom Marcoux’s new book Relax, You Don’t Have to Sell: How You Can Make Sales Without Being Pushy

“What can I do to keep going? I just feel overwhelmed,” my client, Susan, said. This was the beginning of an extended conversation. The truth is: It takes a mix of methods and experiences so one can renew personal energy and be sure to persist.

Some days ago, I had completed a number of big projects with my team. At this point, I was truly tired. I thought about taking the next day off (since I run my own company, I could make that decision).

The next morning, I had a dream. Three words were clear. Courage, Leverage, Image. The words woke me up, literally. I wrote them down and felt a surprising surge of energy. I wanted to write about these ideas and I felt enthusiastic about jumping into my day’s work.

My friend, when you take action to develop Courage, Leverage and Image in your life, you’ll be able to shift out of feeling overwhelmed.

  1. Courage

“Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear.” – Meg Cabot

Ask yourself: What is more important to me than fear?

Recently, on Facebook, one of my contacts asked about how to write a personal mission statement.

I replied:

“In response to your question, I did some reflecting. I’ve had my personal mission for years. I note that I include: 1) Why? 2) What is uniquely me? 3) Where’s the fun? 4) What’s my contribution to others? 5) Where’s the “magic”? [for me that’s the “Big Dreams” part] … My personal mission is: I help people experience enthusiasm, love and wisdom to fulfill Big Dreams.”

Now, it’s your turn.

What is most important to you? How can you apply that to how you do your work?

This also ties in with something called Authentic Marketing. The idea of Authentic Marketing is that you start with your self and core values. New Opportunity: Sept. 23, 2017 — Sofia University helps you use Authentic Marketing so you can serve more clients/customers:

The Sofia University MBA Program has invited Tom Marcoux to step on campus and teach enrolling Sept 23, 2017 in Palo Alto, California. They are also offering the workshop online.  This is a workshop. You will not only hear about the methods. You will work with partners and practice the methods. You can also bring your current marketing materials (if you have any) and work to improve them.

  1. Leverage

We often hear the word leverage in the context of “she now has leverage to take her company public” or “with a list of 100,000 esubscribers, Alana has the leverage to get an agent and a major publisher for her next book.”

Here’s something else that is important: Get leverage on yourself.

The process is: Preset the Trigger Sequence.

A Trigger Sequence starts off with something in your environment. Max comes home and sees cookies on the dining room table. That serves as a trigger, and—boom!—three cookies disappear into his mouth.

We can gain leverage on ourselves by making a conscious decision. For example, I have a Progress Log next to my computer monitor. I keep a log of how many words I write each day. My Trigger Sequence goes as follows: I see the Progress Log and I sit down to the computer and write. No hesitation. I also have an internal trigger: My thought is: “I am a professional writer; I do not wait to feel like writing. I just start writing. No hesitation.”

How can you put a conscious Trigger in place so you get the most important tasks done?

  1. Image

I translate “image” to personal brand. For years, I have trained clients and college students in the 4 Elements of a Great Personal Brand: T.H.O.R. – Trustworthy, Helpful, Organized, and Respectful.

It’s valuable for you to effectively craft the image you project to the world. You’ll get more clients and more assistance when people view you as trustworthy. You live up to your personal brand.

Secondly, your image of yourself can be vital in whether you do what’s necessary to succeed.

For example, I have met people who love what they do, but they hate selling. In this situation, they do not have enough clients. Why? They’re failing to do their weekly marketing tasks.

My heart went out to these people who want to help others but have the “traditional sales” barrier going on. So, I wrote a book, Relax, You Don’t Have to Sell, that provides a new paradigm called The Process of Enrolling. Using this process, people can avoid trying to push or convince prospective clients. This process is refreshing and empowering. People who practice enrolling feel good about it.

When we talk about “image,” we’re also talking about one’s self-image. If you have trained hard to be helpful via your profession, it is a relief to be able to maintain the self-image of someone who helps. The essence of Enrolling is: “Don’t sell–Help.”

In summary, focus on three crucial parts of expanding your success: Courage, Leverage and Image.

Warmly,

Tom
