Information overload makes people lump all kinds of things together in hopes that the ensuing mishmash gets results.
From stress to chaos, we all like shortcuts. When rashly deciding to take that shortcut, we end up making more work for ourselves (and everyone around us). But there is a sequence of thought actions that will help to avoid this situation! First, we choose to see what baloney we’ve allowed ourselves to create. Second, we notice it without judgement. Third, we decide if it’s good (for us) and actively engage to stay the same or change. In this episode, Jess Dewell and Iva Ignjatovic will discuss how to let go of the baloney that gets in the way of our business decisions.
Starting The Conversation:
- When people choose their own path, and they choose shortcuts.
- We are a product of our assumptions, how do we realize where our assumptions are?
Host: Jess Dewell
Co-host: Iva Ignjatovic
What You Will Hear:
Our assumptions affect our abilities, and the ability of others.
Women tend to hold back, to scrutinize.
How not knowing affects us.
The power of WHY questions and the distraction of them.
It’s…really…not about us. Distraction in action.
Importance of shared meaning.
Have a plan. #ActToPLAN.
Three ways to let go of our baloney.
1. Use values + integrity as a guide, provided we use them.
2. Evaluate what we do and who we hang out with
3. Start making decision making
A reflection exercise to honestly look at what baloney we have.
Nuance of choices and decisions and what we have control over.
