Today I start a new series on this site – Transformation Thursday. This series will highlight informative video clips which will give you a brief boost of motivation and/or information. It is my belief we can learn from the mistakes and successes as well as the experience and insights of others. This process enables us to continue on a path of personal growth.
As you embark on this journey with me, you can expect to receive links to various podcasts, YouTube channels and other resources. Each with the purpose of transforming one aspect of your thinking, living or working.
This first week, I want to introduce you to one of the first YouTube shows I subscribed to – Alexis aka Miss Trenchcoat. My introduction to her videos was through a search for recommendations of Productivity book reviews as I endeavored to make my reading list of 2017. Her easy manner of speaking as if you were there in the room with you along with her catchy channel name, led me to watch a few other videos and ultimately to subscribe.
The video I am recommending today is How to Plan and Execute with an Illness. This is a short video of a little over 8 minutes in duration so it makes an easy viewing for anyone willing to watch but have limited time at their disposal.
Yes, the topic may refer to an illness but everyone can use her practical tips. Below is my brief recap of the tips discussed:
Tip 1: Accept and Honor your situation – Understand where you are right now versus what you perceive should be where you are.
Tip 2: Cut back on your priorities – You are your most important priority.
Tip 3: Create a detailed plan of action – Planning your day will help you focus on the most important tasks.
Tip 4: Execute with grace – Maintain a list of actionable tasks which you can work on when you regain strength.
Take a few moments to view the full video and maybe you will find some nugget of inspiration to motivate you today.
Til next time,
