What Are You Saying????????? | The No BS Coaching Advice Podcast

I had two conversations recently where people just didn’t know how to communicate with someone else. We can do better.

Summary

I talked to a lot of people; I coach a whole bunch of folks. Stuff services from time to time in my life that I just find fascinating. One such thing happened today as I was talking to someone… To people's I think about it. I thought I would share it as an exercise in how to communicate effectively.

For example, the 1st episode involved talking about.

" I been trying to reach this person and they are not responding. I called them twice and left voicemail. They haven't gotten back to me."

I asked, "How old do you think they are?"

"I think they are in their early 30s."

"Why don't you send them a text."

Lo and behold, as we are on the phone, a text response comes in! You get my point?

You have to understand who your audience is and how they like to communicate in terms of how to best reach out to them. You may send them an email; they may hardly check email because in their universe, that is a "Boomer thing." They communicate by text. That was one episode.

The 2nd 1 was one where someone else was trying to express care. It is a married couple of the same gender and they said, "I hope you partners okay." The response was, "it's not my partner. It is my wife." The person who provided the well wishes took umbrage.

"How about if your husband was referred to as your boyfriend. Would you have a problem with that?"

She left a little bit and said, "I get where you're going. Thank you."

I'll simply say that this isn't about being "politically correct," as a lot of people like to dismiss it. It is about respecting other individuals. Whether it is you communicating in a way that someone communicates as opposed to having them adapt to you or just being courteous of other individuals and their relationships, you have to recognize that folks are who they are and if you want to offend, keep doing what you've been doing. If you don't want to get results, keep sending emails to people who don't read email and then complain about it all the time.

Don't you want to just have results? Don't you want to just have a happy life?

Behind on Your Goals? (VIDEO)

As I record this is the middle of July and it seems like a great time to start looking at what you might be able to do. If you notice that you are behind on your goals, this strategy can be used to help you at any time with situations where you’re not accomplishing what you set out to do.

Summary

I thought that I would talk with you about how to deal with goals that you are behind on. The thought came to mind because, as I record this, it is the beginning of July, and we are at the halfway mark of the year. It can be done at any time, but I thought this would be a good time to offer this to you.
,
I was looking at a few of mind and so I was behind on a few things and others, I am doing extremely well with and others are not doing so well with., The thought of want to offer you is that, as you look at your list, noticing that you might behind on 9 of the things that are on your list, to you're okay with in one. You are right on the money with, here is what you do.

Pick one. Focus in on that one. Zero in on what you needed to do going into the year that you have been ignoring and just work on that. It's kind of like what Dave Ramsey preaches with how you deal with debt. He doesn't talk about dealing with all your debt simultaneously. He talks about focusing in on your smallest debt 1st and eliminate that. Then he says, go to the next one.

He doesn't talk about interest rates were focused on the interest rate. He just says get rid of your smallest at 1st and then go to the next smallest. Get a win. That's what you should be doing. Look at your goal list and pick the easiest thing on the list. Start working on it and get a win.

Have some fun with it. I have to say that you should have some fun because if you treated like just another task, it's going to feel like drudgery to you and you not to want to do it. Figure out a way where you can make it fun for yourself. From there, go to the next one and then the one after that.

If you don't complete all the items on your list by the end of the year, just ask yourself why it was there, what prompted you to put it there. Then, ask yourself what you learned from this? In hindsight, what you've done differently in order to be effective?

To be clear, this isn't about being punitive. This is just about learning from the experience because what I think happens to most of us now that we are adults is that we get into this time where we beat ourselves up or are unkind to ourselves when what we could be doing is learn from our experiences and work to correct them going forward.

You may not have completed something within a year, but, heck, you may get it done by the beginning of the next year.

Becoming Undeniable (VIDEO)


A Tim Ferriss podcast interview with Vince Vaughn a his share about becoming an actor becomes the basis for this conversation.

The video was recorded via Facebook Live and, unfortunately, is a little choppy and speeded up.

Summary

I was listening to a podcast this morning from Tim Ferriss where he interview the actor Vince Vaughn. What do you like his movies are not, Vaughn's movies are successful. He spoke about the early days of his career, moving from Illinois to California in order to become a better actor. For those of you are aware that profession, I'm sure you relate to these comments you made-- going to auditions are not hearing anything, working at his craft and trying to get better. Getting further along on his auditions and try to get better until eventually got to screen test will you play off of someone who is already in the cast. In order for them to see if there was any chemistry. And that he would get turned down.

For those of you thinking about your career or your life, I think there's something he said next, I think is so important for all of us to hear. Is the idea of choosing at a particular moment to go back and review where he was… There was a with you gotten so far in his career. He was still being turned down, just further along in the process. If the role, if you rejected for a large part, you just go back to doing small parts waiting for another opportunity.

What he realized he had to do was become undeniable, that there could be no good reason to turn him down. He focused on his craft and focused on his profession to the point where no one could turn him down.

Whether it is that it as a job hunter or in your business whether it is in your profession, the idea becoming masterful in your craft to the point where you are undeniable is a message that I think is useful for all of us to hear.

Becoming undeniable is a job hunter is not just simply the ability to have a great work history. It's about clicking on your interviews and in your job search. As a business owner, it's about having a compelling business proposition business proposition and compelling sales proposition and that makes people want to choose you.

There are so many places where this notion of being undeniable is something that we all need to be reminded of.

Become an A Player Again


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2017/05/05/become-an-a-player-again/

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter tries to discourage you from taking it easy and encourage you to become an A player again.

Summary

I don't know how it happens but there was a point for most of us in the US where we start thinking about getting along and being average rather than being extraordinary. You hear the words, "Take it easy," enough times that I think it has an influence. I think there is a part of us that doesn't want to stand out because, at least for some people, they think they'll be chopped down at the knees by the other people and, on the other side, there is a part that basically says, "Maybe I'm not good enough."

I'm not going to be a therapist here. What I want to say is start thinking differently. Think about becoming "A" performer, not the average performer. Average performers get paid average money. Exceptional performers, ones that developed the habit of being extraordinary, whether it's with the firm that you're working for now or the next firm that you go to, they pick up on your ability to be extraordinary. They seek being the best and firms want to pay you for.

Stop being average. Go back to really pushing yourself. After all, I would say to you many times over the next few months,... At the end of the day, you want to be paid like a top performer. You don't want to be paid an average wage do you? The way to be paid more is to be extraordinary and to create more value for yourself and your work..

If your firm is it want to compensate you for it , I'm sure that there is another firm that will. But, it all starts with you. It starts with your attitude. It starts with your effort. It starts with you trying to be the best, instead of being just 1 of the pack.

You Don't Have To Stay Stuck

You Don’t Have To Stay Stuck


This is a simple reminder about how to deal with being stuck.

NOTE: Since recording this video, we have launched NoBSCoachingAdvice.com

Summary

Invariably, what happens in life there is never a direct path upward. There are always a lot of zigzags to it, right? Along the way, with all the zigzags, we often have a precipitous drop. It's just the nature of life. Nothing is permanent. As a result, we need to be prepared for disappointments.

The question comes down to how do you recover from disappointment?

I want to remind you that you can always start over. I know you don't want to hear this but you can start over and start with a blank slate and begin at the beginning again.

If something happened and you were disappointed that you can identify as a professional or personal failure, you don't have to stay doing the same thing and driving that hammer into the mail over and over and over again.It's better to start over,go to the beginning and re-create instead of hitting your head against the wall over and over again.
