Whom you surround yourself with is a choice, just like everything else in your life.

Don't underestimate the strength you can gain from having the right people by your side who genuinely support you through good times and bad. You shouldn't make space for people who bring constant negativity.

Every morning I wake up at 5. This guarantees me 45 minutes of quiet time. This time is reserved for me, selfishly! It is used for me, selfishly! It looks different each morning.

• Some mornings I jog.
• Some mornings I start to jog, give up, & go eat a snack cake.
• Sometimes I read.
• Some days I sit in the shower & let the water hit my face like rain.
•Other mornings I selfishly make my wife coffee, & fold laundry.

The point is, the time is mine! When is your time? When do you make time?

Not everyone is a good listener. 

Most people have a habit of listening to find a way to relate your story to their lives and then tell you how it relates.

A small percentage of people will listen to you, show empathy, find ways to help you, cheer you on, and overall, keep the focus on you and your needs. 

Next time you have a conversation, find out who's really listening to you.

Here is an insight for you all today—key elements to living life with purpose.

Finding purpose in your life changes the way you think, behave, and communicate with others. You lose track of time because you are too busy enjoying what you have at the moment.

To find purpose in your life requires three key elements:

1) Presence
2) Values
3) Challenges

Without these three elements, you can never feel fulfilled and live life with a purpose.

Are you living in the moment?

People say this all the time, but do you know what that means or how to do it?

Living in the moment, or being present, means you are mindful and enjoying what is happening right now and not distracted by the distant past or future worries.

Being present is HARD because our mind likes to wander.

Here are 4 key themes of people who live (and thrive) in the present moment:

1. Focus on your breath
2. Be curious
3. Find your flow
4. Forgive yourself and others

There may come the point where constant meetings, being around the same people, or the same environment will cloud your creativity. When this happens, you may need time to yourself in a different environment to think clearly without any disturbance.

I've had my run-ins with people who like to linger in their thoughts and spend time circling in conversation because, whether they knew it or not, they were not sure what they were looking to achieve.

This has burned me in the past (e.g., Hours spent revising material, unnecessary back-and-forth communication with clients).

Hence, when you are assigned something or create something for yourself, make sure you are fully aware of your end goal, so you know what you are working towards and how t

There are many common symptoms of Burnout. E.g., Changes in sleeping patterns, negativity, low energy, lack of motivation, not caring about work. The list can go on for a while.

But they all fall under the umbrella of three major symptoms:

1. Exhaustion
2. Cynicism
3. Professional Efficacy

Are you ignoring your symptoms? If not, which one do you have?

It's important to find someone you can trust to share your thoughts and feel comfortable knowing someone has your back instead of you "bottling" your situation to yourself.

Recovery is harder when it's a lonely road.

There are many reasons why people in the working world are not direct when speaking. They are one of the following:

* They pretend they are experts
* They are inexperienced
* They are full of themselves
* They don't know what they are looking for
* They love to talk

Even if these people have good intentions, be careful of them. Your time is valuable, and the best thing for you to do is to be direct back at them.

Surrounding yourself with the right people can make a major impact in living the life that you want.

People who Teach, Empower, and Support you in every aspect of your life will fast-track your growth. Also, surrounding yourself with these people will give you an environment of freedom to talk about anything.

Do you have these types of people in your current relationships? If so, make sure you prioritize building on them as they are your keepers.

If you are working hard at something you believe is important, but others (e.g., your boss, clients, customers) do not align with it, you will burn yourself out faster.

Behavioral patterns dictate where you will be in the future. Positive patterns help you reach that future faster. Negative patterns delay or redirect the future you want for yourself.

You are in control of breaking a negative pattern. When things aren't going your way, there are things you are doing that are contributing to it.

Are you consistently: Working long hours, not communicating, or accepting negativity?

If what you are doing is negative for your standards, break the pattern

Anyone have any stories of their worst burnout feeling?

Work doesn't have to cater towards someone else's structure constantly. Find what works for you.

Being good at your job includes knowing how to maximize your efficiency, from knowing what times you are most productive, creative, responsive, and energetic.

Examples: Working remote vs. in office, scheduling important meetings in the morning vs. afternoon, creating more break times to walk around

When you have those tasks that seem never-ending, maybe even repetitive, possibly a multi-day effort (or any other long periodic timeframe), set an "acceptable-for-you" limit where you would feel accomplished when you reach it.

Then, determine your energy levels and decide if you can/want to do more or call it a day.

Example: Setting a limit to how much daily progress you want to make towards a 10-15 page final deliverable for your client.

When I was managing consulting projects, I told my teams that they should feel free to communicate with me if they had any issues or concerns. However, I also wanted their ideas about what they would do to solve the issue they are raising.

Situations can get "extreme," or small issues may arise when you are in the heat of the moment trying to accomplish your goals. That's normal.

But to change the pattern and prevent Burnout, you need to communicate with an action.
