Coaching and Lifting

Busy day here as I had an early dog walk, an early deadlift workout (doing it Friday AM instead of on the weekend), and then a trip to the airport.

I'm off to surprise Joel Marion in Florida. Loooooooooooooooooong story.

Today's kickbutt mindset tip:

Good coaches call clients out on their BS. If you are a coach, do it. If you are a client, demand it. That's the power of coaching.

Likewise, real friends call misbehaving friends out on their BS. Do it. Demand it. That's the power of TRUE friendship.

Thanks to Sharran Srivatsaa for inspiring this one with a comment he made the other day!

PS -

Friday 5am advice...

One of my coaching clients came up with this wisdom...

How to Be the Perfect Parent

If you struggle to walk in the door in "SuperMom" or "SuperDad" mode...

... Consider the idea of the "From Work-to-Home Transition Pump-Up Song".

This technique allows you to be Best Dad Ever (or Best Mom Ever) at home no matter how the day went at work.

Here's how it goes...

Pick a song that puts you in a good mood... then play that song as you transition from work mode to family mode each night so that you can be the best parent you can be.

Leave all the negativity and pressure behind at work.

BONUS: If you work at home, play this song on repeat as you do your end of day "Brain Dump" and prepare for the transition from CEO to Perfect Parent.

You can also do the same thing in the morning, playing a positive pump-up song as you head to the office to put you in the right frame of mind to lead your team.

Music is the answer to your problems.

Let me know how this works for you!
