What can you say YES to today?

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

Take the opportunity today to say YES to something you would normally say No to.

Is this a tricky one? Hmm, not sure. I think some of you might find this difficult depending on what the thing is and how challenging it might be.

To others it might be a simple choice of having a cup of coffee after your lunch when you normally don’t. Either way, try and say YES – see what happens.

Maybe there’s something you’re asked to do at work that you’d normally refuse because it’s not your job – today, have a go. Say “Yes, sure, I’ll do it.” See what happens with the rest of your day. Does it get better, worse, stay the same?

How often do you thank?

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya

Take the opportunity today to say thanks.

This is the simplest thing in the world to do – and sometimes the hardest. We all have occasions where saying thanks to someone really sticks in our side. Sometimes we might even decide not to say it at all.

But saying thanks under those conditions can really make a difference, not only to the person you’re saying it to, but to you too.

When you can say thanks, and mean it sincerely, you are on the path to building a bridge with that person. That relationship could end up growing stronger or at least more bearable.

You can even say thanks to the universe for just being alive!

On the easy side – saying thanks to someone who has just held the door open for you or moved aside to let you through can brighten their day.

That thanks will wind its way through the day passing from one person to the next and the next. Be the one that starts that process off and then enjoy the thought of where it might end up.

You never know, your easy thanks in the morning could end up being someone else’s difficult thanks at the end of the day.

Nice thought huh?

Tomorrow is Monday – first day of the working week for many – give some thought right now to who you might thank at work – even if you really don’t want to.

Even if you hate your job at the moment, find someone you can sincerely thank.

Searching for Simplicity

Find Simplicity

Find Simplicity

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

Why focus can bring great clarity…

I read an interesting article this morning about a study done by Tania Lombrozo of UC-Berkeley about our childhood preference for purposeful design.

The study seemed to show that when we are children we look for purpose in all things: the rain falls, so we have water to drink – for example. Wondering whether this was a state of mind that we grew out of in adulthood Tania tested a number of Alzheimer’s sufferers and found that the entrenched causal beliefs of adulthood (eg: rain is part of the natural water cycle with no obvious ‘purpose’) were weakened. So much so, that they gave similar answers as the children.

The conclusion seems to indicate a natural preference for the mind to conserve energy by seeking to simplify our reality. More energy is used by the brain when we are considering complex ideas. This natural preference is only suppressed in adulthood but lurks in the shadows ready to conserve energy at a moment’s notice.

So what?

This made me think of my own multi-tasking habit. Having 101 things on the go, switching between projects at lightning pace must have a detrimental effect on the amount of energy my brain is using. The average brain uses 20% of all the energy consumed – so imagine the mental exhaustion if you constantly give it a lot of complex work to do all at the same time.

I certainly feel like that often.

So, if you are one that is stuck in a job you don’t like at the moment concentrate on one solution at a time. For the next 7 days, 2 weeks, 1 month – whatever you need, just consider one solution at a time. Focus.

I honestly think that my new eBook will help you do this. Get your f.ree copy right now and spend the required time working through the processes and gain the clarity you need in order to understand what you should do next.

What do you like about your job?

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

Take the opportunity today to consider your job and find three things you’re happy with.

1. I’m quitting soon, or  2. the toilets are clean, etc. – do NOT count! 🙂

I understand this might be difficult for some. Try it though and see if you can ‘honestly’ find three things that you are happy with about your job.

This could be the start of you appreciating it for what it is. We’ve all heard the grass is greener right? Maybe if you stopped looking at what is ‘wrong’ with your job – just for today, you might find there’s a lot you actually like.

It must start with you, all of your happiness, contentedness, peacefulness etc. comes from the way you think about your circumstances.

If you get to the end of today and you really have struggled to find 3 things you like – you need to read my new eBook: “Do You Hate Your Job?“. It’s not very long, but it is laser focussed on helping you understand what you must do next.

Are you capable of courage?

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

This is p.48 of my book: ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At A Time

Take the opportunity today to be courageous!

This might be in the face of adversity, it might be just being brave about something or it might be something really important like making a difficult decision.

Whether you’re nervous about that speaking engagement coming up or whether you need to muster the nerve to ask someone on a date – dig deep and do it. This one courageous moment could change your life. Forever!

I know this is one of those difficult challenges I spoke about at the beginning of this book but hopefully you have tried enough of the other challenges to give you some habitual momentum today.

________________________

Maybe one of the courageous things you need to do is take a good look at your job and decide whether it makes you happy.

If it doesn’t do you know your next step?

If not, get a complimentary copy of my new eBook ‘Do You Hate Your Job?‘ which will reveal all the steps you need to take to go from tired and miserable to invigorated and excited at work.

If you suffer from Monday back to work blues from time to time – or even ALL the time, read on…

I used to suffer from them too. And even if you don’t, even if you really like your job, you probably know someone that doesn’t, right?

Below is a contents list of what my new eBook “Do You Hate Your Job?” covers and it’s absolutely f.ree. I want to help as many people as I can escape the misery of working in a job they hate or get no satisfaction from – what a waste.

  • If You Really Hate Your Job
  • The Importance of Taking Time Away
  • The Comfort & Riches Parable
  • If Can You Fall In Love With Your Job
  • How To Change Jobs (Steps 1, 2 and 3)
  • The Real Cost Of Doing Nothing
  • How to Make Big Decisions (Parts 1 and 2)
  • Understanding Why Change Can Be Painful
  • Mindset = Success
  • Getting To Grips With Fear And Confusion

Within these chapters I deal with subjects like:

  • What’s going on that bothers you?
  • How you can change it
  • What Are Your Options
  • Finding Your #1 Opportunity
  • My 5 Step Decision Making Process
  • Understanding Required Resources
