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:

  • In 1970, the person who works the hardest wins. But it’s 2020. Effort and “being busy” no longer equals achievement. Production toward what matters most equals achievement. You must prioritize and plan your week in advance.
  • Can you put your phone away, or does it control your life? Addiction to anything negatively impacts your quality of life. Take your social media apps off your home screen. Don’t take your phone with you everywhere – or, take a small step by turning on airplane mode every once and a while.
  • Get intentional about practicing gratitude. “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” – Melody Beattie
  • “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn
  • “Life is only about relationships.” – Dr. Greg Sipes That being said, not every relationship in your life is equally important. Who are the top ten most important people in your life? Seriously. Write down their names.
  • Having hobbies allows you to spend time doing things that are not related to work. Further, it opens you up to sharing time with other people, who might have different backgrounds and perspectives from yours.
  • When you feel connected to others and a higher purpose, you experience more peace and contentment. Give a community of faithful people a chance. Build some quiet and meditation into your life.
