689: Four questions to guide you in what you say yes to, with Laura Gassner Otting

In your career, business and life, what should you say “Yes” to? Don’t you wish you had an easy formula? Well, thank me later, I have one for you. This is our Habits show and we’re back with Laura Gassner Otting, our guest in show 687 where our topic was aligning what we do with who you we are. In this show we of course walk through spokes on the Ziglar Wheel of Life. You’ll hear Laura share she found her inner athlete at 38 and can now deadlift 225 pounds. She has a family meeting with her husband and kids every week to go over values, what they are grateful for and weekly logistics. She speaks to toxic vampires, focusing on value over price, saying yes to adventure and more. Her career guiding light as to what she does or does not do is what I got the most value from. I actually just shared it with my family. Here is her decision making process: 1. Will this thing help me, 2) Will it help someone else, 3) Does it cause me joy, 4) Is there someone better that should be doing this? What a brilliant structure. I’m adopting it myself as I realize I often say yes to things that violate one or more of those aspects. And since you can’t possibly say yes to everything, what a great goal guideline! Don’t miss show 687 with Laura and I highly encourage you to get her new book, Limitless: How to Ignore Everybody, Carve Your Own Path, and Live Your Best Life and take her Limitless Assessment and more at lauragassnerotting.com/ziglar/ Learn more about your ad choices.
