Make a plan.
It sounds counter-intuitive that there is one way for business leaders to maintain a positive mindset. I could say TAB Membership can be most beneficial as you get peer-to-peer support.
Whatever you decide to do, you need to focus.
There is no shortage of neurolinguistic programming methods (as taught by Tony Robbins) where you use words to attract positive feelings and erase stress. This methodology is useful, but I want to pivot to a business mindset.
In business, we set ourselves goals and plans. We strategize. We assess our company from all angles. Then we formulate a plan. No one said it would be flawless or that the world would cooperate.
If you have been following us at The Alternative Board, you know we have been pressing for a 2021 plan since October last year. Hopefully, you spent the time and effort on your plan. We stressed a well-thought-out plan using the assessment tools, like the TAB Business Builder's Blueprint or SWOT analysis, or, nowadays, a TOWS analysis.
When we document and own our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, our plan's focus brings our mindset back to our optimistic plan for the year.
You go into the new year mindful that stress will come along. You know challenges are inevitable, but you are prepared to address a bumpy road. Focus on your plans and center your actions productively to resolve the stress.
The plan's power offers you the comfort to deal with your stress positively, which then permeates throughout your organization.
