Are You Selfish? You Should Be!

April 24, 2013

Daily ReadAre You Selfish?

We have been taught all our life to share and think of others, putting our business, family or others needs before our own. But, along with the excitement and possibilities of leading a team, meeting deadlines and implementing new ideas, often times we end up putting yourself on the back burner. Over time, your productivity begins to falter you become a liability instead of a leader. Making a few changes can put you back on track to being a more focused, present, inspiring leader, and yes, a little more selfish!

1. Set Personal Goals. Set goals for yourself and prioritize them above all else.

2. Take Time For Yourself. As a leader, you probably have a lot on your plate, and your worst enemy is time. Despite the challenges, make sure to take at least a half hour of me time, if not each day, each week.

3. Write It Down. Keep a journal, blog or make lists–it helps to chronicle how you’re feeling and what is a priority to you. It also keeps you accountable for your goals.

4. Keep Moving. Moving keeps you thinking. You don’t have to hit the gym to move. Take a walk around the block sometimes to just clear your head. Some of the best thinking takes place on the go.
