I hate breaking a great morning routine that took me years to develop. However, last 14 months I’ve done nothing but reinvent my daily routines and rituals. Here’s what I learned.
Reflecting on 15 years of reinvention, I discovered that specific moments of my life required certain teachers. Here I share how I find them, learn from them, and who I’m learning from in the current chapter of my life.
Today, I realized that one thing I said in 2008 is what made all of my reinventions possible. Without it, I would not have made it very far along this crazy journey. Reinvention may not start with this, but it is made possible by it.
Fixed mindsets aren’t always that obvious. Recently, I enrolled in a new course and struggled to make progress. After some reflection, I discovered I was getting in my own way of learning.
Good habits were always a nice-to-have for me. Then I realized they could lay the groundwork for exponential growth if I set them with greater intention and desired outcomes.
My speaking journey started with shaking knees, sweaty palms, and a dry throat. Thanks to a kind mentor, I learned one of the most important lessons about speaking in my career.
For 20 years I have been chasing the perfect morning routine. Then I realized that I shouldn’t be working for my morning routine. Instead my morning routine should be working for me.
It’s so easy to tolerate things we don’t like and simply move on. Sometimes we don’t even notice the things we tolerate. What are we missing out on when we tolerate? I did something about it and learned that we get the life we tolerate.
After I started to apply the growth mindset for myself, I realized that without this one thing, growth mindset did not work. For the growth mindset to drive success, I can’t only focus on my growth.
Since I was young, I was obsessed with learning how people succeed over and over again. As an adult I studied the science and psychology success. In my research, I found 4 building blocks that created a foundation for successfully reinventing myself multiple times.
