Thoughts of the week
There are always so many things going on in the world. We always prioritise the things we have to know in order to perform at our best at work, during sport or in a personal lives. Over the last few years we took the effort to find out a little bit more about what else is going on around us in terms of world developments, politics, climate, science/technology, business, entertainment/arts and of course sports – the results were incredibly positive and we found:
- Clearer understandings about how everything is ultimately linked together
- How some things can so easily influence others
- Areas you may not have had an interest in before can give you insights and ideas towards the ones you focus on more often
- There is more to people than the “things they do” and discussing other topics can breakdown relationship barriers and also help to develop your personal network.
You don’t have to invest a lot of time is resourcing this information and quite often this can be done in “deadtime” when travelling/commuting. News channels, newspapers, news websites, podcasts, books, journals are all fantastic resources – best of all, are other people! Talk to others you have not spoken to before, have different conversations with colleagues/friends than usually, you’ll be amazed how quickly new information flows through your mind and contributes to your personal performance improving. The sooner you start this habit, the sooner you will see the results…
