If you are busy putting people together to network, to further their careers or to support their cause – think about getting together to connect with no other agenda than to simply stay in touch socially.
When I was younger, I wanted to be a star. And I became one. I also ran my health into the ground and completely lost sight of the importance of connection. Now, I’m more interested in helping other businesses birth their babies. I’m a starmaker, not a star. Being an executive coach allows me to do this.
As a business leader, you have to learn to let go of the stuff in your life that leads to burnout. The best part of doing that is that the more you give others a chance to rise up and be reliable, the more accountable they will be. And the more you value them, the greater connection you’ll build, which will increase their desire to come through for you. Finally, it will give you the energy and time to focus on the REST of your life and the other ventures you want to initiate and build.
Ask yourself: Am I connected to all the important sides of my life (personal, family, intellectual, spiritual, recreational)? Am I living the life I want to live? Am I building the business I want to be building? Really.
Then focus this week on connecting to the areas where you need work.
