Today, I want to talk about the future.
Right now, so many of us are trying to come up with unique solutions to prepare for a new and online world. Many of you know that I use Kaizen methodologies in my coaching, and I am going to give you an example of something that works for a lot of my clients: SMALL QUESTIONS.
If you’ve been struggling to come up with ideas for you and your business, repeat after me:
“If I were 100% certain that we are in for a major shift in how we do business after this pandemic, what would I be doing differently today to prepare?”
Just by asking this question repeatedly, the brain has no choice but to confront it and solve the problem and will hard in the background while you carry on with your day.
There are many ways that you can re-program your brain to help you get anything you want. You see, our brains love a challenge, and when we ask small positive questions in the right way, we end up with amazing and powerful aha moments. Those moments come when we are in Alpha Mode – our most creative.. when our brain is at a lull. These times include: walking, having a bath, sleeping, driving, and in the shower!
So, if you want to know what you should be doing right now to prepare your business to be stronger and more resilient, ask yourself a small question:
“If I were 100% certain that we are in for a major shift in how we do business after this pandemic, what would I be doing differently today to prepare?” Comment on the aha moments that come after asking yourself this question and others just like it.
That’s it for today – and if you are looking to brainstorm and talk it through with someone, reach out for some unique solutions.
