Podcast cover

"Doing your work as unto the Lord..." how to turn a church buzz word into a successful mindset.

http://chrislocurto.com/how-to-turn-a-church-buzz-word-into-a-successful-mindset/

TODAY our conversation is centered around the #1 thing I have done in my life as far as growing a business and work. Our first caller asks,

"Professionally, how do I get a game plan to go to the next level and become a top performer in my field, and also be able to spot business opportunities."

Here's a taste of what we talk about:

- Doing your work as unto the Lord: how to turn this from a church "buzz word" into a successful mindset
- The one factor that overrides a growth mindset, financial planning, and diversification
- The big "difference maker" between career fulfillment and failed events
- Where society's concept of "hustle" is greatly lacking
- As a parent, raising your kids to be successful adults

http://chrislocurto.com/how-to-turn-a-church-buzz-word-into-a-successful-mindset/

Then we dive into setting culture:

- How to motivate team members to complete tasks
- How to successfully bring on new hires (to get work done you need them to get)
- You have to force the culture that you want, or other people will force it for you.

If you want to be on the show and have your question answered by me, it's easy to do now. Get on the schedule here.

Be honest...how many "life hacks" are you trying implement this week? How many lists, habits and resources do you invest in monthly?

Timeout.

-Do I really know what's holding me back?
-Do I have correct perspective, not just people's advice and opinions?
-Why am I responding the way I am?
-Am I looking at my business and life the right way?

"You're going to have to come up with their ideas."

http://bit.ly/2aV1LuR

Fixing bad culture in a business can feel like an uphill, if not impossible, battle. Especially when there are cynics and naysayers resisting change. I was talking with Jim Collins years ago, and his definition of a cynic is...

• How to lead in a change-resistant culture
• How to motivate employees when your supervisor has lost hope
• The right questions to break your team's negative mindset
• How to implement change when the leadership team is stagnant
• The questions you have to ask to fix a broken culture
• The best approach to combatting cynicism in a leadership team
• How to cut through bureaucracy to reach a solution
• How to unite leadership teams and third parties, get them "on the same page"
• The process of setting goals with multiple areas in your business

Do you have any bad habits? Do you wonder why so many successful Entrepreneurs are able to create habits that contribute to their success while others can't seem to get them to stick? Well then you are in for a treat on today's podcast. The crazy, incredibly talented Gretchen Rubin in on to talk about that very thing! One of the things with happiness and habits, is to manage your own mind, to really think about the mood that you're in or the way that you're feeling and think about, "What can I do to fix this? That is the biggest myth is that there's a right habit that everyone should follow and it will work for everyone. There's all different factors that could influence whether someone found it easier or harder to keep their habit of exercise. An important clue is, when have you succeeded and when have you failed? How do you measure people against each other? How do you create a framework for understanding the patterns that we see? This thing almost melted my brain, it was so hard to grasp. I realized that when it comes to habits, people fell into four very striking patterns. I divided all of humanity into four. There are upholders, questioners, obligers, and rebels. So, the challenge for each of us is to take advantage of the strengths and counterbalance the weaknesses so we can get ourselves to the place we would want to be.
