4 Ways a Paper Planner Changes Everything for High Performers

Have you become so busy that you have neglected the practice of using a planner? If you’re like most of the clients I coach, you’ve fallen into a rut of clicking “accept” on every event that passes through your inbox, from zoom meeting invitations to party evites. You likely send your daily routine straight to your Google calendar and rely on its notifications to manage your days and weeks. 

 

You may just be flying through life living from one Google notification to the other.

 

Do you ever feel like your schedule is running your life and wonder if you’ll ever get to be in charge again? 

 

If this sounds like your current rhythm, I want to express how deeply I understand. Being a busy business owner, wife of an entrepreneur, and mom of four young children  who still need help with their homework and a ride to EVERY activity -  I couldn’t relate more. That’s why I am so passionate about something that has...

This Is How To Improve Yourself Every Day

James Clear once said, “change your habits, change your life.” As a big proponent of the power of healthy habits, I couldn’t agree more!

 

We all want some sort of transformation in our life. Whether it’s making small changes in our personal life, becoming a better parent or taking our business to the next level, most everyone wants to better themself in some way or another.

 

Many people believe that in order to transform, they have to completely overhaul their life. But I want to share a nugget of truth: it’s the small habits that transform.

 

When you think about it, it makes total sense. When you commit to following through with small habits, they add up over time: resulting in big change!

 

Making sweeping changes can also have a big effect, of course. However, as humans it can be super easy to drop those big changes when they become overwhelming. Admit it, you’ve let go of a New Year’s Resolution or two because it...

The Key to Breaking Bad Habits

If you’ve spent any amount of time with me, you know that I love a good discussion about habits. Whether good or bad, we all have them. If you’ve clicked on this post today though, you know we are talking about habits you want to break...habits that are no longer serving the person you want to become.

 

Bad habits are something that have evolved within our life that usually have some sort of pay off that we find rewarding. Maybe it’s the feeling of a lazy day spent on the couch avoiding chores, or avoiding that sense of anxiety by procrastinating on a big work project. Either way, the immediate gratification of embracing that bad habit is so enticing that we find ourselves doing it over and over.

 

But news flash! All those bad habits don’t offer any rewards! They continue to just bring short term “happiness,” causing you to miss out on all the goodness that is otherwise out there.

 

So how do you break bad habits? It’s not as...

Here's How to Stop Being Busy All the Time

When it comes to being a high performer, a lot of people believe that the quickest way to reach success is to work harder. And working harder usually equates to being busy. After all, if you’re busy, you must be accomplishing a lot, right?

 

Not necessarily.

 

First, let’s admit that high performers have a natural tendency to be busy people. They are hard working, go-getters, and make things happen. That can often present itself as a constant state of frenzy. 

 

We’ve likely all been there, especially when we’re trying to launch a new business or level-up!

 

But let’s be honest––it’s not sustainable. And it’s also not productive!

 

A healthy high performer (or someone who is working towards health) spends their time and productivity working on the right next steps or their habits.

 

High performers who are in a healthy place aren’t thinking about how many meetings they can squeeze into a...

4 Habits That High Performers Underestimate

As a high performer, you know that habits are a crucial part of success. Habits set you apart and help you hit new levels that otherwise would be hard to attain.  

 

Author of High Performance Habits, Brendon Burchard, shares that to become a high performer, you must seek clarity, generate energy, raise necessity, increase productivity, develop influence, and demonstrate courage.

 

Following those habits, I wanted to share four underestimated habits that I’ve found sets my high performing clients up for success. 

 

They Embrace Mornings

While not every high performer is a morning person, they do choose to make the best of them. Starting the day off so that you have clarity, direction, and purpose is a big part of reaching high performance.

 

I personally am NOT a morning person, but what I do is set intentions in the morning to be sure I’m in charge of my day and not letting the day be in charge of me. You don’t have to wake up at...

5 Reasons You Need Accountability to Meet Your Goals

Goal setting is a big topic in the new year, but here's the thing...setting goals is not enough. You need a plan to put in place to make your goals a reality!

 

One part of that plan needs to be accountability.

 

Unless you have accountability, you’re probably going to give up before you reach all your goals.

 

In this article, I'm going to share about how accountability is important and how a coach can keep you on track for making 2021 productive for you.

 

1. Accountability Keeps Your Goals on Your Radar

We all set goals with the best intentions, but then life just gets in the way. A busy home life, work, kids sporting events and global issues (hello, pandemic) can easily come between you and your goals. It’s not uncommon to forget about them entirely!

 

That’s where a coach who offers accountability comes into play. They’ll check in on regular intervals and remind you of your endgame. They’ll offer the encouragement you want...

Where To Start To Reach High-Performance

high performance Jun 02, 2020

You’ve probably heard the term “high performance” before (especially if you've hung around me before *wink*). Whether it’s in your Instagram feed, from one of your favorite YouTubers, or maybe an email has popped up in your inbox with this phrase, you've seen the term.

 

When I first heard this term, I was intrigued and wanted to know more. I wanted to know more because I felt like it described the way I wanted to approach life that I had never had words to describe before. I was always the person who wanted more...not in a dissatisfied way, but in a growth-oriented way, and high-performers are this same way!

 

High performance can be defined as consistently succeeding on a long term basis, and beyond what most people define as standard. Basically, it’s going above and beyond more often than not, and meeting and exceeding your goals!

 

Who wouldn’t want that?

 

Now that you know the definition, your next question is probably...

What Is High-Performance & How You Can Get There

high performance May 28, 2020

As a coach, I often get asked about what “high performance” means, and how it differs from any other type of coaching. To pare it down to the most basic description, someone who is a high performer is one who reaches for and sustains the highest levels of performance and potential in all that they do.

 

Now, this doesn't mean high performers are perfect, it just means they are always striving for optimized living.

 

The fact is, most of us want to become the best at what we do. We don’t wake up wanting a mediocre day, with average results. We want to reach success, and we want to keep doing it over a long period of time.

 

So how do you become a high performer?

 

Research has shown that high performers have several things in common that set them apart from others. Let’s take a look at 5 qualities of high performance that Brendon Burchard has researched in his High-Performance Training.

How To Make Success A Must

high performance Apr 08, 2020

As a high-performance coach, my job is to guide people to success. While everyone’s end goal is unique, we can all take a similar approach in finding our own success.

 

So what does that look like?

 

First, it’s important to note that high performers enter into tasks with the expectation of success. They don’t set out to succeed just “hoping” to do a good job. No, they set out to reach their goal each and every time!

 

Now, this doesn't mean that they can't accept failure. High-performers just know that failure is an opportunity for learning.

 

To be successful, it’s important to make it a “must,” not just a preference. Here is how you can make success a must.

 

1. Associate your identity with doing well.

 

Researchers have found that high performers associate their identity with doing well. They have positive self-talk that identifies them as successful. They psych themselves up to be successful before...

Why You Need A High-Performance Planner

We live in a digital world, where paper and pen is often considered “old school.” If you aren’t naturally a person who loves to write things down and check them off (guilty!) then the thought of using a paper planner may not appeal to you or may even sound like one extra task you need to check off every day.

 

However, using this kind of tool can help you be more intentional and strategic in meeting your goals. Not only that, it can provide an outlet for your creativity, memory keeping, and at the very least, your daily scheduling.

 

Once you’ve taken the plunge into paper planning, the next step involves deciding which one. A quick Google search can provide overwhelming results. I’m going to save you the trouble and share my favorite planning tool, The High-Performance Planner.

 

As someone who went through a period of time where I was trying all.the.planners. I can tell you from experience that this one is the best!
