  • “Don’t make little plans.” You’ve heard this, the rationale being little plans aren’t exciting, so make big ones. The quote comes from a famous architect and makes sense in that context. For 2020, focus less on the size of your plans, more on whether or not the plan gets you excited.
  • One way to get excited about a yearly plan is to mentally jump ahead to December 2020 and describe how the year ended up. Pick two or three of exciting accomplishments then work backwards. What has to be in place October 2020 for December to happen? What about August? etc. back to January. Then get to work.

  • Unknown: i.e. the future. I just read a headline “Economists Got the Decade All Wrong. They’re Trying to Figure Out Why.” I know why. We humans are terrible at predicting the future. Pick a path but be flexible.
  • Remember to forget your beliefs about people from your past. This time of year people complain about visiting family because your family rarely forgets their beliefs about you. The lazy little sister who became a CEO? Still someone’s lazy little sister. Re-evaluate your beliefs from time to time.

  • Sticking to the same beliefs you had a decade ago sounds impossible but we do it. Science tells us our bodies turn over every seven years at the cellular level, so it makes sense to question a few cherished beliefs now and then, like now.
  • One reason we stick to old beliefs is self-talk. Always, never, should, they, them, why, are examples of words that creep into our brain and keep our subconscious from investigating further. Check your self-talk for such trigger words.

  • Happy to remind you the past is set and the future changes with every step you take forward. With this in mind, check your plans to make sure they’re flexible enough to change.
  • Every time a new opportunity presents itself, instead of just considering short term activities and rewards, step back and ask yourself how you might change say, three years out. It opens up a new set of questions to ask.

  • Sleep impacts performance. While it may be impossible to control your team’s sleep schedule, it’s worth reminding your people by circulating a few sleep study articles.
  • An idea for completing routine, repetetive tasks without a drop in quality: set a timer and play the same music.

  • Research requires good sources. If you think, “did Einstein really say that?” there’s a good chance he didn’t. Find primary sources.
  • Now that we’re a week away from Thanksgiving here in the USA, it’s a good time to remind myself there’s a good chance I don’t need another piece of pie.  Read more

  • You will do well to remind your people face-to-face communication uses tools our culture has passed down to one another for generations. Important conversations need to take place face-to-face.

  • Talk to strangers. If you have trouble initiating conversations, wear a brightly colored shirt and smile. It does the trick.
  • Help someone in need. A stalled car, a flat bicycle tire, a fundraiser request. You’ll get more from it than you give.

  • Re: tipping. Last week a study on Uber riders showed 60 percent of riders never tip. On the flip side, 1 percent always tip. Take this as a reminder it doesn’t take much effort to be in the 1% of something, but it does take consistent effort.
  • Ever pick up the bill for no reason? Comedian Deon Cole does a bit on picking up the check that made me laugh. Next week, just grab the check. I’m sure it all evens out in the end, but even if it doesn’t, you’ll feel like you did something.
