I’m always very happy to share my Guru’s and today I am introducing you to Phil Olley who is a specialist in personal and professional FOCUS. In fact, Phil has a special mission to share with all of us and it’s called ‘FOCUS on PURPOSE.’
Since Phil became a client earlier this year, introduced to me by our mutual friend, Christine Fieldhouse http:twitter.com/c_fieldhouse, I’ve become a member of The FOCUS Gym, the daily 7 minute broadcast which takes place at 0745am each week day. Going to TFG has become part of my morning ritual, amongst other things like early emails, meditation, walking Meg etc. Mornings are busy in my life and I’m still typically in the office by 9am! (Could this be because I focus on the things that are important to me?).
Phil describes The FOCUS Gym as “switching on your neck top” and that it’s important we exercise our mindset muscle and create a daily action plan that is consistent with our goals, everyday. Having been familiar with other ‘boot camps’ and their methodologies over many years – THIS boot camp for the mind is awesome, doable, no-excuses why you cannot and should not and frankly, everyone can benefit from this and now through my work, representing Phil, it’s become an intrinsic and natural part of my Vision & Mission to enable as many people as possible to FOCUS on Purpose.
Take a moment to reflect on the following:
Imagine what it would be like EVERY DAY to be focused on the key result areas you want to achieve.
Imagine beginning EVERY DAY with absolute clarity and feeling in control.
Imagine EVERY DAY having a sense of excitement and zest to it.
Imagine EVERY DAY being the best you could make it.
Imagine the impact on your WEEK if you felt like this/achieved like this.
Imagine the next MONTH being this focused and on purpose.
Ok, now imagine you project forward to the end of this YEAR and can look back at all you have achieved – not achieved by default and 18 hours days, BUT through your deliberate focused skills and techniques, through your personal daily commitment to be the best, AND because you decided that how you live your life, into which work plays a major part, IS that important to you.
The FOCUS Gym has not only raised my game, efficiency, productivity, it has given me more free time because I’m honing my time management skills and working on the right stuff and key result areas all the time. I’m not perfect. My working life usually has a curveball of two and a stonking high-speed deadline thrown into a typical day but I roll with the punches and because I know how to focus on the strategic goal and actions, I’m not fazed. I’m in control of my life and I love it.
Phil suggests most busy people don’t want to work harder (he’s right!) and that we want, and should aspire to becoming RESULT-AHOLICS. Yes please – more of that people? Let’s all go MAD and make a difference to the quality of our own lives and enable the positive ripple effect to permeate to all those in our lives, our friends, colleagues, family etc and let’s be change seekers for FOCUS on Purpose.
If I sound a little promotional (well, I am a publicist), and if I sound a little evangelical (well, I am only human wanting to be the best version of myself), if you knew what I know now in terms of focus skills and techniques in just 8 weeks, frankly if you don’t want to find out, you must either be super-focused anyway (what's your secret!), scared of how successful you could become or plain not bothered.
I can cross my heart and say I have participated in The FOCUS Gym every day for almost 2 months now and what’s happened because of it?
Well, being a focused kind of gal anyway, I was intrigued to see how it would raise my game AND increase my focused action behaviours and goal setting skills. What could it teach me? Where were my focus gaps? I’ve learnt so much in a practical sense AND honed my time management to within an inch of its life AND have achieved three major goals already, in just under 8 weeks. Personal goals. I wasn’t always so good at making time for my personal or business goal-getting. Mmm. That’s not right people.
Now, I do come from the school of ‘what we think about expands and careful what we wish for as we might just get it.’ This is a little airy fairy really. When we pack a punch of deliberate focus on the right goals and create the right daily action plan .. well .. we exponentially increase all opportunities for the right reasons.
Warning: coming to The FOCUS Gym might change your life.
Are you bothered to try?
What are you NOT achieving enough of in your life?
Have you had enough living in life treacle and going around in circles?
If you could live like your life depended upon it .. would you?
