Energized for Excellence

Health and Productivity Expert Michelle Cederberg:

She is an energetic and energizing speaker combining wit and wisdom. Here are my somewhat disjointed notes.  I'm definitely buying her book.

We all have excellence! Attack today with boldness. The energy within is a renewable resource Referred to her book "Energy Now"

Also referred to the book "First Things First" by Stephen R. Covey (the table below is adapted from this book).  How are you currently spending your time? Reprioritize! You can always find time for what you think is important. Move your growth tasks into obligations.

Urgent and Important
Important not Urgent
Not Important but Urgent
Distraction and Deception
Unimportant not Urgent

When it's hard to say no. Answer the request with a pause and the words "That sounds like a great idea. I'll get back to you in 24 hours."

 Physical, emotional, mental health = high performance

 "Stress does not like salad"

And there's another book by Michelle "If Your Life Sucks It's Your Fault" she describes it as a book that people buy to give away...

MESH: Move, Eat, Sleep, Hydrate
Move: Do more than is normal for you. Incremental improvement. Go big or go home doesn't work. 
Eat: bite sized changes
Sleep: do it
Slow down, pause, rest

There's a difference between Mind Full and Mindful

Prioritize your time
Protect your time
Power-up using MESH (Move, Eat, Sleep, Hydrate)
Pause and Breathe

 Small steps count. Do the work
