Some say we’re either in “Being Mode” or we’re in “Doing Mode.”
Actually, both are always present, though our awareness may only be fixed on one or the other.
The more effective move is to be aware of both at the same time. It’s not easy to stay attuned to what you’re doing and how you are while you’re doing it – but that’s the ticket to bringing about better effects in the world. Improve your state, improve your performance.
How can you improve your state? Try talking to yourself like your favorite leader, bring to mind a high performer and embody their way of being. See what works for you.
