6 Questions To Change Your Perspective #298 

by Sue Hawkes

If you read yesterday’s blog, don’t worry, my rant is over…for now.   One of the tools I use to move through my frustration and feeling of lack of control (other than a blog rant, which I recommend) is a series of 6 questions I now use to meditate and journal on with frequency. I owe much thanks to my dear, wise…

On Your Terms #211

by Sue Hawkes

On Your Terms #211 What sets up a winning day? Arguably, most people have a morning routine. Does it serve what you need it to? Are you setting yourself up for success or have you fallen into a habitual series of actions that deter from your best day? Three questions to consider for an effective day: Do you begin with…

Flawed and Excellent #210

by Sue Hawkes

Flawed and Excellent #210 Some days, it seems everything is more challenging than it should be. Imperfect and flawed. I was presenting for a client in two different cities the same week. We’d been planning for months and we were ready. When I arrived at the first location, for the first time ever, our materials weren’t delivered. We scrambled, worked…

It’s Like Laundry #208

by Sue Hawkes

It’s Like Laundry #208 Eliminating waste is a great thing. When you think of waste, do you include time, energy and money? How about space? At the beginning of the year, I realized how much stress I had when my email inbox was full. Like all busy people, I receive many emails on any given day. On New Year’s Day,…

Filling the Space We Have #189

by Sue Hawkes

Filling the Space We Have #189 I bought a new truck recently. It’s larger and newer than any car or truck I’ve owned. It’s technology with wheels, a very lovely ride, and has an amazing sound system. What more could I want, right? Not so. I don’t like how big this truck is. I am learning to drive differently than…

Don’t Wait #181

by Sue Hawkes

Don’t Wait #181 If you want something, do you wait for it? I don’t. In my twenties, when I wanted a job, I met with the owners of a small training company and expressed my interest in working for them. They told me they couldn’t afford to hire any employees at the time. Though I was disappointed, I began to…

Love What you Do #177

by Sue Hawkes

Love What you Do #177 What can I do to change, improve, impact, and engage others? It’s a big question. Do you wake up wondering how you can maximize your impact on yourself, your team at work, your company, your community, perhaps even the world? If not, why? What if 50% of your job was to do your job impeccably.…

No Throw Away Moments #169

by Sue Hawkes

No Throw Away Moments #169 Sometimes we forget. We forget the meaning and importance behind what we’re doing and it erodes from there. It can be as simple as preparing for a meeting. When I remind the leaders I work with about the facts – what it costs them to host a meeting with their leadership team for an hour…

Complacency is the Enemy #168

by Sue Hawkes

Complacency is the Enemy #168 As a leader, you have the honor of caring for the tone of your culture daily. Some days, that may feel like a privilege and other days it may seem a burden. What’s the difference? It’s how you’re relating to the complex beings around you and the interpretation you have about how they “should be”…

Sparking Action #166

by Sue Hawkes

Sparking Action #166 When you pursue a dream, a future opportunity, or a goal, all kinds of concern, worry, and fear can show up. After all, it wouldn’t be a future possibility if you already knew how to do it. Recently, while working with a group of CEOs, one of them declared something big. It was something career and life-altering…
