Good Afternoon  ,

In our fast-paced world, we're often encouraged to work harder and faster - to hustle - in order to get more done.

Andrew Thomas,  an entrepreneur, inventor, and adviser, has a suggestion for us -  several, actually.

Pick your head up, take a break, and look around! 
  • Are you hell-bent in the wrong direction? 
  • Are you cruising to a major breakdown, as Thomas describes in his own case?
  • Are you too heavy, too tired, too out of shape to function at the top of your game?
Recently I've been working with Annette Bau, a coach who recommends doing "power hours", punctuated by "power breaks". The breaks are about 10 minutes, composed of: 

Exercise - enough to get the blood moving (walking is great). 

Focused breathing (in for 8, hold for 8, out for 10) - visualize inhaling good stuff, absorbing it, and exhaling negative stuff.

Planning  the next hour.

Some of Annette's power hours are personal, some are business. The personal ones include meditation, exercise, and other mind-calming and health-improving activities, similar to Andrew's suggestions.

So we focus intensely on work or other activity for an hour +/-, then take a break, then focus again. Very effective.

Even though I admit I'm still working on fully adopting this routine, I find immense benefit from it. I accomplish far more in a day than when I tried to push hard all day. The work I do is much more focused on results than volume of activity.

All to reinforce and report great results from following Andrew Thomas' recommendations

Slow down to accomplish more. 

Do  more , only when it counts more toward results you want .

Take care of yourself.

It really works.

Want more  Coaching Prospects ?

Are you moving steadily toward your business goals? What's holding you back?

How would you like to connect with 15-30 prospects a day who need your services...and can pay for them?

When you join Smart Money Network's  Business Accelerator Platform, here's what we do for you:
  • We help you edit your LinkedIn Profile Page to better attract the people you want to attract. Tell them what's in it for them!
  • We send LinkedIn "invites to connect" to about 100 of your best prospects every day. Our unique software finds these few thousand among LinkedIn's hundreds of millions of members. Like hunting for "a needle in a haystack", it's at least difficult, and certainly time-consuming, to find them manually.
  • We send a welcome message to the 15-30 percent of them who accept your invitation and connect. (My own experience is currently 26%.)
  • We begin to "drip" messages to your connections. In these messages we give...give...give...and then ask. No pitches!

All of these messages come from you personally. You can follow the threads and adjust your messages whenever you like.

You can take over the exchange manually whenever you see an opportunity you want to "ripen" personally.

About John

Throughout a career spanning over 45 years my management style has been one of building teams to bring several competent people together to focus on a common objective. I noted early in my career that, in most organizations, there is an enormous amount of time, energy, and effort wasted by people working at cross purposes.

As I transition to life in the Argentine outback, my focus shifts from coaching to helping other business coaches and advisers get their message out to their prospective clients. With my first-hand knowledge of the benefits of effective business coaching, I am uniquely qualified to help business advisers of all stripes convey their message.
