“The Golden Rule of Habit Change: You can’t extinguish a bad habit, you can only change it.” ― Charles Duhigg

Maintain a Work Balance

  • Plan daily schedules to support short-term and long-term goals.
  • Review team goals daily, then link them to the activities for the week.
  • Avoid ambiguous language. Be very specific and precise so the listener can receive a clearer communication and less the need for repetition.
  • Don’t allow little distractions to take away your focus from your team.  Turn off those pesky text and email pings that takes your attention away from you projects.
  • Set realistic time frames on new projects.   A tight work load can frustrating and generous workloads can contribute to inefficacy.
  • Give instruction and make requests as specifically, as possible.  Ask your team to repeat what they think you said and immediately correct misinformation.
  • Use delegation skills to develop your team and expand their work experience skills.
  • Ask your team, “Is there a more effective way of doing these projects?”
  • When multiple people take a project, break it down into pieces of their own real estate.  It sometimes can get difficult to stay on track towards the end project goal.
  • Schedule creative and challenging monthly events during your peak hours.
  • Lighten up with laughter to lift spirits and enhance creativity.
