One of the biggest traps leaders face is the busy trap. We’re constantly busy working on projects, helping our team, and going going going, but we rarely are calling a timeout to make sure that what we’re busy with is helping make the company or team better.

We must exercise better control of our day in order to effectively compete for the goals we want to reach.

Besides, who wants to always be busy spinning your tires in place when you could be racing that nice car around the track?

Learn five things I started doing to intentionally be more effective in my endeavors - and how you can too.

For Brian Kight, unflinching realism and relentless optimism are like the two rails of a train track. Without either one, the train can’t move forward. For some people, taking a long, hard look at realism is a challenge. For others, it’s easy to get stuck in the rut of pessimism. But while many may feel these forces are in opposition, Kight says the ability to be realistic and optimistic helps you cut through excuses and take control of the decisions you make.

They are also two of the core principles of the DMGB mindset, which stands for “Doesn’t Matter, Get Better.” Regardless of what challenges you face, or how motivated you are or aren’t, you can make the choice to bring your best every day. It’s not about following your passion, Kight says, it’s about bringing your passion with you to everything you do. You have the power to hold yourself to the same high standards no matter what the task at hand is, and use your energy day in and day out. By making the right choices and holding yourself accountable, you can build the discipline you need to bring value to your work.

Too often we're distracted looking for one major moment instead of the tiny ones that actually make the difference. Personal touch. Small steps. The little choices that every day compound to create big results.

Focus on how you can win the small things in order to seize the big things later.

Don't let the pursuit of that goal keep you from making time to identify who you want to become - and doing the necessary work to forge yourself into them.

For Alex Auerbach, it’s all about the people. As the director of wellness and development for the Toronto Raptors, Auerbach spends his days building a strong workplace culture and supporting resilience and mental performance among players, coaches, and staff. Being able to make a tangible difference in people’s lives has always been appealing to him, he says. By helping those he works with develop the skills and tools they need to be successful in both sports and life, he’s able to follow his passion daily.

Looking back on the different organizations he’s worked with over the years, the one thing each and every one of the successful teams had in common was that they took a people-centered approach. It’s important to spend time getting to know the people you’re working with, Auerbach says. While it’s natural to enter into professional and personal relationships with goals in mind, it’s critical to set those aside and co-create a relationship that’s beneficial to all.

What does your team notice first? It's important as a leader to understand how your actions tell a bigger story than your verbal orders ever could.

Brett Price knows the importance of sticking with something he’s passionate about. From the time he was a student himself, he’s known he wanted to work in baseball. So, he found the best people to learn from and worked his way up to becoming the strength and conditioning coach for the baseball program at the University of Alabama. Now, he passes along the lessons he’s learned to the students he works with both on and off the field.

It’s important to create a culture of dedication on a team and that comes from having standards, Price says. He defines a standard as what is required of a person regardless of how they feel on any particular day. By letting his players know that the best is expected from them every day, from the moment they walk in the door, they understand their commitment to the team is important. And by using a top-down approach and modeling that behavior for them, his players understand that he cares about them and is willing to do what it takes to help them succeed.

“One day I’m gonna...”⁣

Too many people talk & post about what they’ll do “one day.”⁣

Can the results of the work you’ve put in tell the story of you?⁣

Talk is cheap. Social media isn’t always reality. We need more people to BE about the work so that their results speak for them.

Sebastian Little says his life’s purpose is to create spaces for full self-expression and play. Understanding what makes individuals tick and how to use those motivations in service of their larger goals is a key component of his current work as a mental performance coach. This week, he shares his thoughts on the responsibility of leadership and the importance of giving yourself time and space to reflect on important moments in your life.

Over the years, Little has had to learn to synthesize his environment -- to take in all the stimuli and information -- and then consolidate the pieces that are actually important. From there, it’s possible to discard the things that are holding him back. It’s been a long road to learn how and why this process is important, and has taken moments of deeply personal reflection. But now, he shares his journey with others in the hopes of helping them find their own path forward.

We all want the glory and awards that come with success, but unless you're focused on building your block of ice where no one is watching, you'll never shine where everyone is.
