I came across this TEDx Talk by Marvin Chun. I suggest that you may consider taking the 20 minutes needed to watch this video, preferably with a 100% focus. It might be useful to practice the SILSA which I have written about, to help have this focus. Do the SILSA, stay 100% Focused
Of course, Marvin’s talk is backed up by research and data that he, and others, have done.
Personal Effectiveness is a pet topic for me, inspired by Kichu Krishnan. Personal Effectiveness is also almost always 1 of the Top 5 Priorities that clients identify in their “Goal Identification Process” that comes right at the beginning of our Happiness Coaching assignments. Based on data gathered over the last 7 years as a full time coach, this is by far the most important aspect that comes up for clients.
And rightly so because only when a person is able to manage their personal effectiveness, can they aspire or hope to do anything about all the other things in their lives.
Marvin talks about 3 things to enhance focus and achieve more. At the cost of sounding like I am bragging, these echo what we (Kichu, I and others in our circle of coaches) have found in working with people over many years.
