The 2am meeting

Herunterladen, um offline zu lesen

You know that spending half the night mulling over possible to solutions to work/family/life issues is definitely not the best use of your sleep time. You wake up tired; you don’t handle things as well and your worry and grumpiness just compound. You are caught in a negative stress spiral, being sucked down and it’s hard to break.

The 2am meeting

  1. 1. Recently I spoke to a group of real estate leaders about high performance leadership. After I spoke, we had a brief Q & A. Completely out-of-the-blue, one of the leaders in the room asked “How do you stop the 2AM meetings with yourself?”
  2. 2. You know that spending half the night mulling over possible to solutions to work/family/life issues is definitely not the best use of your sleep time. You wake up tired; you don’t handle things as well and your worry and grumpiness just compound. You are caught in a negative stress spiral, being sucked down and it’s hard to break.
  3. 3. So what if you could shorten those 2AM meetings? What if you could sidestep that agenda of “what if?” Maybe just briefly turn up and then disappear back to the land of nod.
  4. 4. To avoid going the distance at the 2AM meeting you need to stop taking your minds’ agenda seriously. You mind is going to throw out endlessly problems and possible solutions, and the more you listen, the more it will talk.
  5. 5. The trick is to tell your mind “Shut up! I don’t want to hear from your now” and then refocus on the warm, soft sheets, your comfortable pillow, your slinky PJs or the joy of spooning.
  6. 6. It’s not going to stop your mind from wanting to interrupt again, and it’s OK to let your mind keep chatting, but you just need to make sure you don’t start chatting about it’s agenda. Focus on the present, not a possible future and the 2AM meeting will be over in no time!
