Is it possible to get satisfaction from all your hard work? CJ McClanahan discusses The Achiever’s Compass, an assessment to identify the exact tactics you can employ to decrease stress and enjoy the journey. 

What We Discuss in this Episode:

  • Resist the urge to judge yourself – no one is perfect. Perfection is your enemy. Make it your goal to make small improvements every day.
  • Money is the easiest way to measure success. Because of that, watch your environment – if you’re with people who live lavishly to ‘keep score,’ you will be guilted into spending lavishly. “Comparison is the thief of all joy.” President Theodore Roosevelt
  • Amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, we are asking if what we are doing matters. Ask yourself, “Where do I want my career to go?” and “If everything in my life is going perfectly three years from now, what are you making, what are you doing?”
  • The food you put into your body fuels the energy you have in the day. Eat small meals throughout the day of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains.
  • Exercise reduces your stress, increases your endorphins, and changes how you feel. Block one hour in your day for exercise. Keep yourself accountable by signing up for a race, or working out with a friend.
  • Living in the moment is the single greatest factor that impacts our happiness. It is also the most difficult tactic to practice. The less you multi-task, the easier it is to be in the moment. Block time in your day for silence, perhaps meditation. Using silence trains your brain to be in the moment, to still the outside noise.
