POINTS FOR PERSONAL EFFECTIVENESS
By Jeffrey D. Brown
What Are You
Putting Up With?
All of the things you
tolerate -- clutter, distractions, people who drain
your energy, and other annoyances both large and small
-- are costing you.
They are keeping you
from having a quality life. At the very least, they
are having a negative effect on you, draining energy
and attention from the more important things in life.
Do something about
what's bugging you! Make a list of at least ten tolerations
and commit to resolving these energy-drains. Beginning
today, take action to eliminate them from your life
Once you've gotten
a taste of just how fun toleration-elimination is,
try creating a "super-long tolerations list"
for yourself. Compile a list of a hundred things that
you're tired of putting up with and set aside some
time each week to systematically eliminate them. As
a coach, I've found that making such a list often
ignites a kind of "toleration-solution engine"
in my clients, leading to quicker resolution of many
of their most common tolerations by helping identify
and avert them at the source.
Most people say that
when they eliminate a big toleration, they immediately
feel more energy -- as if a tremendous weight has
just been lifted! To have a quality life and be healthy,
we need all the energy we can get. When you eliminate
extraneous "stuff," you noticeably enhance
your access to the energy that naturally flows through
And that's what it's
all about, right?
All the best to you.
