How to Prepare Your Environments for Back to School

Back to School Road SignIn my blog series, Designing Successful Environments For Your Life, I discussed how to evaluate and bring your environments more in-line with your goals. This time of preparing for back to school is the perfect time to practice evaluating your environments and making changes or plans to achieve your goals.  Everyone hopes for a smooth back to school transition full of peaceful mornings and homework sessions but how many of us plan for it and make the necessary changes to our environment to achieve it.

In her article, 5 Ways to Prepare for Back to School, blogger Leah Speer says that she has “discovered 5 essential tips in making this transition from summer to back to school as seamless as possible.”

She suggests:

  • ESTABLISH A ROUTINE
  • GET ORGANIZED
  • BE IN THE KNOW
  • COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR CHILD
  • PLAN YOUR MEALS

Designing the Environment of Relationships

Environment of RelationshipsReview the following to help you evaluate and bring your “relationships” more in-line with your goals.

DEFINITION:

The environment of relationships is the interaction with the people around you. This includes your:

  • Family – those that live under the same roof as you and can include your extended family – like your birth family, family of origin, adopted family, etc.
  • Friends – this is both your inner circle as well as your general sphere of friends — those people who you connect with on some level
  • Colleagues – those you work with – clients, vendors, co-workers, etc.

EVALUATE:

All: (Family,  Friends, Colleagues)

  • How are your relationships with these  people?
  • Is there anyone you are holding anger, a lack of forgiveness or resentment for? Families can be challenging. Often the deepest abuse and hurt happens within families and it can be the most difficult to understand and work through. Realize that forgiveness is as much about your own inner peace and freedom and the lack of forgivemess hurts you more than it hurts them.
  • Consider boundaries that you need with people in your life to maintain healthy and productive relationships?
  • What people are toxic vs. fillers in your life. Adjust your time to spend more time with those who fill and uplift and limit the time with those who are more toxic.
  • What relationships are missing in your life? Do you find yourself isolated or alone? What relationships do you want to intentionally design to support your life and happiness?
  • Consider the impact you have on others. If they were to describe you in 3 words, is that how you want to be described. Perhaps you have spent a lot of time complaining, being self-focused, etc. Reflect on how you are showing up with others in your life and make adjustments to how you WANT to show up.
  • How are you adding value and joy to the people around you? Often we get busy with life and focus on our things and forget life is not about us. Consider how you can be a light in your relationships with others.

Summary:

Relationships are very important as human beings. We were created to be relational beings – whether you are introverted or extroverted. Relationships and the care of them is important. Often when people look back over their life, they don’t wish they had worked more, they wish they had spent more time with the people they care about most. When dad’s reflect on their relationships with their adult children, if there are regrets, it is usually because they worked too much and didn’t enjoy the years their children were young. Take time to invest and be in relationship with the people God has blessed you with and put into your life. Relationships are priceless – and an investment you will not regret.

Nine Ways to Ignore Distractions at Work

Nature EnvironmentIn my blog, Designing the Environment of Nature, I discussed how to evaluate and bring your “NATURE” more in-line with your goals. The environment of nature is our natural surroundings. Often these are things we cannot control; the in’s and out’s of life. What is presented each day… In the office there are aspects that are hard to control but there are things you can do to improve the environment.

In her article, How To Ignore Distractions In The Workplace, Forbes staff writer Jacquelyn Smith, consulted “career experts” Phyllis Mufson, Andy Teach, and Meredith Haberfeld for suggestions. She says “If you regularly lose focus at work” there are nine things you can do:

  1. Manage your time and space. “Reserve regular blocks of time for work that requires concentration,” Mufson says. “Try using the first hour at work to make headway in your most difficult project. Ask your co-workers for quiet time, and if that is not possible, take your work into a conference room or other quiet space,” she suggests.
  2. Limit technology interruptions. Haberfeld says. “Turn off email and text alerts and, if your role allows, only check your messages two to three times a day.
  3. Organize your workspace to minimize visual distractions. Have a tray for incoming work and keep only the project you are working on now in front of you, Mufson suggests.
  4. Learn self-management skills.
  5. Make a plan to minimize distractions. “Haberfeld says to pick your top two distractions and give two weeks attention to keeping them high on your radar and resolving them.”
  6. Make others aware of your plan. “Letting others know about your strategy to minimize distractions will help you stay focused.”
  7. Take action. “Haberfeld says, get the friendly word out that you’re setting up designated office hours for walk-ins.”
  8. Take care of your health. 
  9. Make time to reflect. “Take time at the end of the day to reflect on your day and what you want to focus on tomorrow. Write your priorities for the next day and review your list when you come in.”

What are your biggest distrations in your office environment?

Designing Nature’s Environment

Nature EnvironmentEnvironment of Nature:

Review the following to help you evaluate and bring your “NATURE” more in-line with your goals.

DEFINITION:

The environment of nature is our natural surroundings. Often these are things we cannot control; the in’s and out’s of life. What is presented each day…

This includes:

  • Life – The process of existence. The evolving stages from birth to death. What happens to you in those stages. How it impacts you. This includes uncontrollable things such as: puberty, menopause, aging, lay-offs, family development, in-laws, health challenges (poor eyesight, tumors, low metabolism, etc.), accidents, deaths, etc.  Also any things that create major life transitions or priority shifts like: marriage, becoming a new parent, subsequent births, kids in college, divorce, remarriage, career change, retirement, etc.
  • Seasons – This is the “time” of the year (often correlating with the weather) and the impacts the “time” has on you.  It is different depending on where you live, but seasons exist everywhere, they are just marked by different things. For example,
    • Winter is often cold, cloudy and people spend more time inside.
    • Summer is usually busy, time for vacations, sunny, hot, etc.
    • Fall is school, time for new routines, leaves change, etc.
    • Spring has flowers, rainy, warm after winter chill, outside more, etc.

The seasons affect your mood (people are often more tired / depressed in the winter or on cloudy days). The seasons affect body (rain usually brings out more arthritis and aches and pains.). The seasons affect your routines and patterns (activities you might do: going to park, walks, BBQ’s, visit with neighbors, etc.)  The seasons can have very quiet changes that really make a difference in how we operate.

  • Outdoors – This is the opposite of inside. The beauty of God’s natural earth. Outdoors are about:
    • Natural light and fresh air (why so many prefer to work by windows),
    • Air and stimulation from lush plants (why we have “house plants”)
    • Amazing creation seen in forests, beaches, mountains, etc. that brings relaxation
    • Places that stimulate you for enjoyment, beauty, refreshment, etc.
    • Serenity that comes from sounds of the outdoors (why we have so many CD’s and radios with outdoor nature sounds)
    • Sun rays that give light, energy, warmth and time measures.
    • Reflection of the moon & star light, that we enjoy in the quiet of the night
    • Enjoying the environment in which we live….

The outdoors is so activating that there is a big push in the corporate community right now for the true tropical environment. By bringing nature inside creativity is stimulated.  There is also a growing awareness around using recycled or natural outdoor materials for indoor structures (i.e. concrete and recycled vinyl).  This will serve to protect the environment more and lessen the destruction of the earth.  The destruction of the earth through manufactured products can be a block for some people as they sit in their environment and worry about how they are contributing to the deterioration of the earth.  This may seem odd, but really, think about it. We have calendars and big framed art with scenery. We have soundtracks with nature noises. We have retreats to the beach and mountains for get away trips.  We have indoor water fountains (simulate running water), fans (create air movement/wind), and plants – both live and artificial – just for the lush green look! Whatever it is, whether bringing the outdoors indoors or simply getting out to enjoy the outdoors – it is a place of stimulation and inspiration.

FOCUS: Write your main goal: ____________________________________________________________

EVALUATE:

Life:

  • What is going on in your life?
  • What are the uncontrollable life factors affecting you right now?
  • What are the life transitions or priority shifts that are impacting you right now?
  • How are the parts of life impacting you?
  • What factors are you trying to ignore?
  • What factors about life are you tolerating that are keeping negative energy in your body?
  • What are the life factors that are impeding or blocking your goal progress?
  • What life factors are supporting your goal accomplishment?
  • What life factors do you need to give some attention?
  • Where do you need to give yourself a break?

Seasons:

  • Think about how you are in each season.
  • How would you describe each season?
  • How do you feel in this time?
  • What do you do?
  • What is the worst thing about this season?
  • What is the best part or thing about this season?
  • How can your goal be supported in each season?
  • How is your goal challenged in each season?
  • What do you need to be alert to in different seasons? (notice the impact on you)
  • How can you creatively leverage the seasons to accomplish your goals?

WINTER

SPRING

 

 

SUMMER

FALL

 

 

Outdoors:

  • How are you bringing the outdoors inside to stimulate or inspire you?
  • What is important to have in your indoor environment that keeps the outdoors alive?
  • What part of the outdoors would you like to bring in?
  • How often are you getting outside for refreshment?
  • When would you like to get outside? (favorite time)
  • How do you want to be outside? (walking, sitting, eating, etc.)
  • Where is a rejuvenating place for you to go?
  • What parts of nature have a big draw for you? (sounds, site, smells, etc.)
  • Do you have an “inspirational” spot you can go, even in your mind to imagine it when stressed… mental get away? Do you have a photo reminder of that place?
  •  What pictures would you enjoy having inside?
  • Go outside right now. What do you hear, smell, see? Just sit for 10 min. and soak it in and enjoy it. We get so busy we forget to stop and enjoy the nature around us.
  • How can the outside support your goal success?
  • Think about what stimulates you outside and identify how you can put yourself in a position to be regularly motivated and stimulated by the outdoors.

Summary:

How does nature support you? How does it hold you back? What do you need to add, take out or change in your environment that will support your growth and steps toward you goal?

TAKE ACTION

  • Review this environment
  • Schedule a coaching call if you want additional support
  • Explore the questions for yourself & the brainstorm re: your goal
  • Start to identify some ways to support your goal through the environment of nature
  • Write questions you have
  • Draft a few steps you could take this week to move you closer to your goal!

6 Steps to Office Organization

Physical EnvironmentIn my blog, Designing the Physical Environment, I discussed how to evaluate and bring your physical space more in-line with your goals.  Office space is a crucial environment to success in the workplace.

In her article, 5S in the Office TodayAudrey Thomas, CSP, better known as Organized Audrey, gives 6 ways to better organize your office environment.  They are based on the 5S system, “a method of organizing and maintaining neat and clutter-free manufacturing facilities that encouraged productivity” developed by Toyota more than sixty years ago. She asserts that “after 5S-ing the office and committing to keeping it in place, you will be able to concentrate on the tasks at hand more easily, and productivity will increase.”

The 6 S’s are:

  1. Sort – “Begin by considering: “What do I need to do my job every day?” Think of your office as expensive real estate. Only items that add value to your daily routines and tasks deserve to sit on your desk and take up space. When in doubt, move it out!”
  2. Straighten/Set-In-Order “Straighten up your area by creating specific “homes” for files, objects and equipment. You’ll use things more often and easily put them away when they are designated to a specific location.”
  3. Shine/Sweep -  “A clean environment encourages organization and also is an attitude-booster.”
  4. Standardize -” Bringing standardization into the office allows for systems to be put in place so everyone follows procedures the same way.”
  5. Sustain – “we must be proactive in returning items to their designated areas (straightening) and developing processes for handling incoming information and projects (standardization).”
  6. Safety

How a Strong Network Can Benefit Your Career

networkedIn my blog, Designing the Networked Environment, I explained that your “network” is  about RESOURCES AROUND US.  It is similar to the environment of relationships in that it can deal with people interaction. It is different in that it expands to include information & tools and focuses on systems that support our pursuits.

In her article, 7 Career Benefits of a Strong Network, Heather R. Huhman gives 7 ways that a strong network can benefit your career:

  1. Guidance. “Building and maintaining a network of industry contacts is one simple way to ensure a continued level of guidance throughout your career.
  2. Opportunities.
  3. Support.
  4. Discovery. “For some, this means gaining keen business insight through forum conversations on social platforms, while others may learn innovative tips from a chance meeting with an industry contact at a seminar.”
  5. Growth. “…whether it’s pushing you to apply for a position you initially felt was out of your realm or simply inspiring you to work harder on a daily basis.”
  6. Status. “When it comes to your career, sometimes an aspect of power lies within you who know.”
  7. Resources.

Designing the Networked Environment

networkedEnvironment of Networks:

Review the following to help you evaluate and bring your “NETWORKS” more in-line with your goals.

DEFINITION:

The environment of networks is about RESOURCES AROUND US.  It is similar to the environment of relationships in that it can deal with people interaction. It is different in that it expands to include information & tools and focuses on systems that support our pursuits.  This includes:

  • The Web– The wide world of the internet. It would still include snail mail, magazines, the library and any place else you can get pools of information. The most common and most easily accessible place today is the web because here there is unlimited information as well as interactive communication. Through e-mail groups, chat rooms and posting boards you can communicate with many people. Through places like your web site you can communicate about yourself to a wide audience of searching people.  There are many ways the web can support you and make your life easier. How can you streamline something today?
  • Customers – People who could buy from you. People you provide support for. People you serve. People who consume your product or parts of it.
  • 6 degrees – This is the power of networking and knowing that you are only 6 people away from anyone you want to meet. If you are intentional and specific about what you are looking for – putting it out there to many people who you do know will put you into a line of connections that can put you in touch with information or people who you want to contact or connect with!

FOCUS: Write your main goal: ____________________________________________________________

EVALUATE:

Web:

  • What do I need? What would be really great to have that I might be able to find on-line?
  • What do i want to learn about that will support my goal and progress?
  • What groups on the web could I join to brainstorm with people, get information, support, etc.?
  • How can I use the web to support me? Reminder cards, graphics, music, forms, checklists, etc.
  • What pages do I love going to? Do I have them organized and bookmarked?
  • What are my favorite reading sites? Can I eliminate some of my paper by reading/perusing on-line?
  • How can I communicate with someone in a fun & creative way through the internet? (Thank you e-card, e-invite.com, yahoogroups.com, etc.)
  • What resources do I want that will be supportive, informative, energizing and expand my view of my bigger picture or game?
  • Think about all areas: spiritual, financial, health, career, friends/family, fun & recreation, physical space – what would be a great way to boost this area of my life – that I might be able to find on the web (e-devotions, tips, e-zines, vacation spots, www.birthdayalarm.comwww.goals.com, etc.)

Customers:

  • Who were your past customers that you clicked with? What would it be like to contact them? (get feedback, network, offer independent services, etc.)
  • Think broadly about your local, abroad and virtual markets – go through your old contacts and business cards. Who is in there?
  • Who are your customers? Who do you serve?
  • Who could benefit from what you provide?
  • Who do they know & what could they provide for you?
  • Think of yourself as a customer – how do you like to be treated?
  • How do you respond to people you “purchase” things from or work with? (imagine if they asked you for your feedback or insight, or whatever you would find helpful from your customers – what would that be like?)
  • What opportunities are available in your customer base?
  • Touch base with someone today.

6 degrees:

  • Who is in your community of people?
  • Think about who would be great to know, meet or talk with. Who do you want to know?
  • Who could support you in your new goal?
  • What type of people do you want to spend more time with?
  • What type of energy & skills are you looking to surround yourself with?
  • Get specific… WHO would you like someone to put you in touch with?

Summary:

As you DAILY keep your goal in front of you – the laws of attraction begin to work. What you are doing is what comes to you. What you are focused on comes to you. Developing a strong network will be an incredible means to bring amazing resources into you life. This might be information, people or tools. There are a lot of people out there who know things and do not mind sharing; they just need to be asked. Know what you are looking for and be excited about your exploration for it.

Make sure you are plugged into many outlets (networks) because the more places you are tapped into the more “hits” you are likely to receive. Think about a computer network. Each system holds a ton of information; the more systems that are networked together the more information and power available to ALL the systems. Being a part of a network is not only extremely valuable to you but is also incredibly rewarding as you get to share your knowledge, expertise and resources with others. This exchange is refreshing and motivating as you enjoy the exchange of helping others and they are also happy to help you!  Imagine the momentum and energy that comes from these interactions.

What resources and networks do you have around you to support your ambition?

Community network, mastermind groups, coaching groups, teleclasses, internet chat rooms, groups like yahoo groups and discussion boards…. Etc. These are examples of networks that play a much bigger game and inspire you to expand your network to a global level where your options are limitless.  In this space you can move yourself to a level that saturates your life with like-minded people who may help to position you in a global market.  Get into a several networks that are different in purpose and style.  The expansion available to you as you plug into these vast systems will provide great connections, inspiration and stimulation to start and the possibilities beyond that are endless. What are you looking for? What resources would be an amazing jolt to your goal success?

TAKE ACTION

  • Review this environment
  • Schedule a coaching call if you want additional support
  • Explore the questions for yourself & then brainstorm regarding your goal
  • Start to identify some ways to support your goal through the environment of network
  • Write questions you have
  • Draft a few steps you could take this week to move you closer to your goal!
