If you could have more time or more energy, which would you choose?

I’m going to get bold and make the case that many of your challenges would be overcome if you had more energy.

If you’re like me trying to control time, you take things off your schedule only to find other things have filled that briefly open space. As a result of your effort, you still don’t have any extra time. What you’ve got is a new routine.

I think we can all admit that there have been times when we avoided giving feedback for this reason. We’ve avoided giving feedback to protect ourselves, even though it would give the other person an opportunity to change their behavior and increase their chances of positive outcomes.

On the other side of that equation, when we don’t get quality feedback it leaves us with a gap in knowledge and unable to even consider making changes.

Trust answers the basic question, can I rely on you? How much trust someone has in you is in relationship to the level to which they believe you can be relied upon.

In this episode I’m sharing five things that will cause people to lose trust in you.
