Hey, this is Jeff Heggie. Thanks for joining again or if this is your first time, welcome to our success strategies is something I started just kind of to talk about different things we can be doing to make sure that we’re staying productive and getting things done while we’re facing this coronavirus pandemic and today what I want to talk about are a couple different things. One is as we’re in quarantine or social distancing, whatever you’re having to do right now, how important it is to still stay connected, staying connected with your team was your employees with those that you work with, but also with friends and family and different stuff like that. But how do you do that when you’re in quarantine? One, pick up the phone, text, whatever you want to do. Use a zoom call. There’s a lot of ways we can still stay connected.
Speaker 1: (00:47)
You know, yesterday was my wife’s birthday and we’re in quarantine and how do you throw a surprise birthday party for someone when you’re in quarantine? We had our out in our front yard eating, eating cake and celebrating her birthday. And we had arranged to have a lot of friends and neighbors just drive by and come say hello, honk, rolled down the windows, wish her happy birthday, that sort of thing. So there’s a lot of ways that you can still stay connected with people and I think it’s really important to make sure that you’re doing that for yourself, for others and especially for your team. So that’d be the first thing I want to talk about. The other thing was, the topic of knowing your why Simon Sinek. Uh, you know, I love how he’s taught that. That’s something, that’s how I first came to know who he was when he talks about knowing your why.
Speaker 1: (01:35)
He says, once you discover your ‘WHY’, you’re better able to align your beliefs with every choice and action that you take in order to do greater things and get more from fulfillment out of the things that you do. Um, he talks about a lot about it with companies, but on a personal level too, you know, you’ve got to know what your why is as you’re making choices and doing different things. People, the way he said it with companies is people don’t want to buy what you do. They want to buy why you do it. And so really knowing what your why is an important thing. And I think a lot of people believe that they know what their why is, but they don’t know it on a deeper level. And the reason I got thinking about this was for a couple of reasons. Um, I wrote an article in my blog on August 1st of 2019 and it was called seven levels deep.
Speaker 1: (02:27)
And over the last couple of weeks it’s been the most popular article on my website on www.JeffHeggie.com. So if you want to learn more about this, go, go check out that article. I talk about Simon Sinek and I talk about the seven levels deep exercise, but I also on www.JeffHeggie.com my momentum training is free right now. And this is one of the things that I talk about. I go through this exercise, really learning what your why is. And so if you want that free momentum training, go to www.JeffHeggie.com And you can signed up on that and take a look at that and learn from that. But you know, as as a way of motivation as well, there’s a lot of things that when things get tough and we go through hard times or we’re in quarantine and we have a day that we don’t have much motivation, it’s what’s the why behind what you’re doing that’s going to drive you and keep you motivated and get you up in the morning to go do things.
Speaker 1: (03:27)
And as I said, you know, a lot of people think they know what their why is, but in reality, they don’t know it on a deeper level. But once you figure it out on a deeper level, it’s that much more meaningful to you and it’s that much more effective in keeping you motivated and keeping you moving forward. So really encourage you to go www.JeffHeggie.com and get that free motivational Momentum Training. And I think it’s the third video that I talked about this and it’ll take you through an exercise to look at some of your goals that we figure out throughout that course and figure out what your why is behind each of those and really find a deeper level to it. And then the other thing I just want to remind you about tomorrow, Thursday the 16th, um, 12 o’clock, Arizona time mountain standard time.
