Monday Morning Musts + Motivation

It’s Monday again. Another day of home office and home schooling my elementary school aged children.

I woke up feeling groggy. With fall weather here, the change of season always wreaks havoc on my allergies. Although I take a daily allergy pill, I can’t avoid feeling like poop especially in the AM.

Woe is me!

Okay enough with the pity party now, as we have some serious work to do!

First the workout. This guy looks super creepy, so don’t do anything he does for sure.

I start my morning on our row machine and commit to a minimum 15 minutes daily. This gets my blood flowing, my happy endorphins up, and makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something before really getting into my day.

Next it’s time to hit the shower, and get dressed in the most comfortable matching short shirt set available.

Some may say dressing more formally helps you work harder at home, for me it just makes me feel more stuffy and uncomfortable making it hard to focus.

Next, COFFEE time.

This coffee looks like doody, but it’s like eating a cinnamon sugar cookie without the crumbs and sugar.

Here are the ingredients to make the magic happen:

Ignore the Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate for my school aged kids.

Unsweetened Almond Milk, Organic Coconut Oil, Cinnamon, and Dunkin Donuts coffee all make up for the groogy fall wakeup call at 6am.

Looks bad, tastes heavenly and gives me that perk to start my day.

Next I prep my cold water and lemon juice from an empty Starbucks cup and drink throughout the daily, filling it often. I find drinking water from a straw makes me drink more without thinking about it, plus it saves the cup so I reuse it for road sodas and more.

Next I check my stats on my website, and understand what worked well for my audience and what flopped.

I have committed to writing at least one article a day, so digging for inspiration takes research and time. I want to write about information that is valuable and entertaining, to help my fans do their best.

I find that forcing content I am not behind or not passionate about typically flips as you can get the time as you read it.

Here is your Monday motivation:

Imagination is More Important Than Knowledge + How to Apply It To Your Career

Said the great Albert Einstein himself, ‘imagination is more important than knowledge.’

Patricia Varga, Jeff Weiner, and Simon Sinek, ALL GREAT LEADERS IN OUR SPACE TODAY, all produce the same, common mantra.

Can you guess what that is?

QUEUE JEOPARDY MUSIC

Bingo to those that said compassionate leadership.

But it’s not just about being compassionate.

It’s about being ethical and morally sound as well.

It’s about getting behind those leaders that have something valuable to say, and meaning behind it that goes beyond the four square walls in your office or home.

And that is PURPOSE.

In order for people to thrive they need to have MEANING behind their work through knowing the bigger picture and how it relates to them and the world.

Dov Seidman wrote an essay in Fortune about why business leaders need to demonstrate MORAL LEADERSHIP now, and beyond this pandemic.

CEO of Fortune Alan Murray recently quoted the following for this essay that should resonate with you:

“The business of business can no longer just be business. Everything is now personal, the business of business is therefore society. Mission and margin, profit, and principle, success and significance are now inextricably linked. In the fused world, how we relate to people and communities matters now more than ever. Going forward, businesses are going to compete on trust, on responsibility and on creating and maintaining deep relationships with their stakeholders rooted in shared truths and values.”

Does this resonate with you? If so, how?

This is saying that basically once the world was round, and now it is flat in business in the sense that EVERYTHING IS EVERYTHING as Lauren Hill would say. And change comes eventually when a plan it is place.

How you do one thing is how you do everything, and creating a sense of PURPOSE, BELONGING, and GREATER GOOD for humanity is critical to uniting a team and uniting a purpose for the long haul.

Without a purpose, without a moral compass, and without inclusivity, any business will fail.

The ability to express creativity WITHOUT FEAR is critical.

When ONE PERSON stifles that creativity and judges it, while sweeping others ideas away is a DICTATOR.

It is critical to have others be able to express themselves in a healthy way that sparks creativity for your business, and being nimble is more important than ever.

How has your business become nimble this year and have you had to change?

Have you embraced changed or have you prevented it for security?

A Slice of Humble Pie from the Jamaican Womens 4×1 Running Team

I have had many humbling experiences in my lifetime sports career. But the biggest by far was losing to the Jamaican Womens 4×1 Team at the Penn Relays in the 90s.

My first humbling experience was being identified as a boy although I was a girl at soccer tryouts. I blame that on my moms homemade pixie haircut, and the fact that the lady mom coach calling me a boy may have had a hangover.

Second was being beaten by the Womens Ward Melville Lacrosse Team 20 to 1. The only retribution was scoring that one and only point. Still chaps my ass.

Third and most humbling was being schooled by the Womens Jamaican 4×1 Sprinting team at the Penn Relays. At that time the internet was not popular yet, so I really had no idea how fast they were until the race. Literally felt like Willie E. Coyote.

Main reason I am talking about this today was seeing the USA womens sprinting team school the Jamaican womens team today on the Daily.Vib IG handle.

While you are at it, please like and share our IG handle @leverageambition for some Monday Motivation.

Let the games begin! 🎯
