H2P: World Shift: Root Cause of Failure and Success


When something goes wrong, we always look for something (or someone) to blame, and while this may make us feel better in the moment, it is not helpful. The first thing to remember, is things didn’t go wrong…things just didn’t go according to plan. That just means that we have an opportunity to learn and should take advantage of it. Next thing to do is figure out why things didn’t follow our plan, and really dig down into the root cause rather than just what appears on the surface. For example, a project did not reach completion due to missing key [...]

H2P: World Shift – Procrastination


We all make those excuses of “5 more minutes” or “after this episode” and next thing you know you have wasted hours if not a whole day. This is not a good spot to be in if you want to achieve your goals. The first step in breaking your procrastination habit is to identify why you are procrastinating. Is the task something you don’t want to do? Does the task seem too big and you don’t know where to start? Are you just being lazy? I personally procrastinate either because the task just seems like a huge undertaking or because I [...]

H2P: World Shift – Reviewing Your Goals


It has been some time since you created your S.M.A.R.T. Goal, created your excellent plan on how you are going to achieve your goal and executed your plan. All done, right? Not even a little bit. Now comes the hard part….reviewing your goals. This is an activity that you should be undertaking at least weekly just to keep focused on achieving your goals and lets you see how far along you have come. When you are doing your goal review, if you find yourself falling short of your plan, you need to figure out why. For example, if your goal was [...]

H2P: World Shift – Changing Habits


We all have habits. These are regular practices or tendencies that you do and can range from working out to brushing our teeth to writing in a journal every night. Some of us have better habits than others. Those of us with bad habits sometimes think that we (and yes I mean we because I also have some bad habits) don’t have the will power or conviction to change our habits, but that isn’t true. Good habits are just things we do overtime that replace our bad habits. To create a new habit, remember: Reminder, Routine and Reward. The first step [...]

H2P: World Shift – Communications


Are you listening? I mean really listening? Not just nodding along and thinking of what you are going to say in response but are you actively trying to listen and comprehend what the other person is saying? One of the most common pitfalls in miscommunication stems from not listening, but the good this is...its relatively easy to fix.  Don't listen for the sake of listening. Listen for the sake of understanding.Most of the time when people are speaking, one of two things happen. The first, and easier to fix, is that we zone out. We start running through our to do [...]

H2P: World Shift – S*** Happens


We all do it. We all make mistakes. We all deviate from the plan. We all make poor decisions. It is inevitable and unavoidable so we may as well learn how to deal with it.  First, OWN IT. If you make a mistake the best way through it is to own up that it was your mistake. Nothing is worse than going through life wondering when the hammer is going to drop because someone found your mistake. Once you own it as yours you can stop worrying about it and move on to step two.  Second, FIX IT. Mistakes happen, we [...]

H2P: World Shift – Planning


We all fall into that trap where we make lofty goals and then a day/week/month later we fall back into our old patterns and behaviours and then we don't achieve our goals. People seem to think the problem is lofty goals....we are choosing goals that are too big to achieve. I don't know how many times I can say this, but if your goals are SMART (http://fattytraveladventures.blogspot.com/2018/01/h2p-world-shift-smart-goals.html) then the problem isn't your goals....its your planning. How many people have decided on January 1st that the goal for this year is to lose 20 pounds, maybe join a gym, go for a [...]

S.M.A.R.T. Goals


Who says you have to wait until Dec 31st to make a new goal? Goals can be created and developed at any time.You don't need to wait for an arbitrary date to make a change, but you do have to make sure your goals are S.M.A.R.T.  SPECIFIC Goals need to be precise. If you don't know where you want to get to, how will you know when you have achieved what you set out to do? For example, saying your goal is to get fit, what does that even mean? Do you want to lose a specific amount of weight? Do [...]
