I have been amazed at how two big ideas have shifted my paradigm around productivity and effectiveness.
The first is the concept of going for extraordinary. I have begun to name my key roles, using a “Superhero” moniker, because superheros embody the transition of simple, ordinary people into extraordinary human beings. For example, instead of being a Client Partner at FranklinCovey – I want to be “Greatness Guy”. It’s not meant to be silly or flip, nor do I plan on leaping between Chicago skyscrapers in red tights. But thinking about greatness as I look at my roles helps set a higher standard for me as I approach work.
The other big idea is around Q2 Weekly Planning. I have been able to significantly increase my Q2 activities, with great results and incredible changes in my personal energy.
I just shared some of the 5 Choices ideas with my college son. He is skeptical…but, so are a lot of folks when they first meet a superhero!
