When was the last time you were wrong?

Really, how long has it been?

Leaders are focused on getting things done; on getting things right; on getting the right things done. My mentor [I never met him, but he taught me SO much through his writing and recordings] Peter Drucker had just 5 questions he’d ask anyone he ever consulted. In between the lines – I think – he was asking questions to get people to think. He loved watching people consider options, weigh possibilities, and come up with thoughts they hadn’t had before. Listen in to this episode of the podcast for something so simple, and profound, you can start doing it tomorrow.

In this episode, you will learn…

  • Do you know how many days Jason dedicates to learning each year?
  • Some BIG changes are coming to the Podcast. Listen in.
  • Two managers said something important last week.
  • There’s one activity you can do to bring out the best in people.
  • The 200th episode of the podcast is coming soon!

Please share a question, an idea, or a prompt below, so we know what YOU think of this ‘cast.

THIS month, things are changing. BIG time…

If you’re ready to help people be at their best, you need this podcast. I promise!!

Episode 197 – How to set a visionary goal

Click here to subscribe in iTunes

Click here to subscribe in Stitcher Radio

Who inspires you to set goals?

Have you set the right goals lately?

Just last weekend, I bought Jodi and I tickets to see the comedian Kathleen Madigan “do her thing” in Thousand Oaks, California. I’m tellin’ ya, for about an hour I laughed, and thought, and wondered…it was amazing to see her up there on stage. At one point, she talked about the “Oprah Influence” and how when people think of Oprah they immediately start to consider their goals, their dreams, their ideas for the future. Well, that got me thinking. So, in this week’s episode I’m going to share with you how (and why) I set visionary goals.

In this episode, you will learn…

  • Do you know how many people have reviewed Jason’s book on Amazon? More than 180!
  • When you join www.TimeToGetMomentum.com you receive 3 copies of Jason’s book.
  • An “Ideal Day” is not a perfect day; it’s not a once in a lifetime day. It IS a day coming toward you in the near future.
  • How the house that Jason grew up in wasn’t insulated, and didn’t have heating.
  • There are just 5 steps you need to take in order to write an ideal day!

Within the next few weeks, we’re going to reach a MILESTONE with the podcast. I’ll record episode #200 for you.

If it’s time to set new goals, you will love this episode.
I promise!!

Episode 196 – How to make – and keep – a promise

What have you said “yes” to?

Could you manage your agreements better?

Years ago, I earned a Master’s Degree in Psychology. For two years (it was one of those “executive ed” programs) I spent a weekend a month, and a week during the summer, studying the impact of the psyche on productivity. It was important to me that I completely understand the connection between “saying” and “doing.” Years later (published in 2010) I wrote a book with my dad on the topic!

In this episode, you will learn…

  • What special day it is today for GET MOMENTUM members
  • How close we are to celebrating podcast episode #200
  • Two ways you can make – and keep – promises #Better
  • You can join GET MOMENTUM by visiting www.TimeToGetMomentum.com

Are you getting the most from your life?

What if you could learn more, learn better, learn faster?

In this episode, you will learn…

  • Why Jason is visiting 4 countries in South America this week
  • The THREE questions people have about writing in a journal
  • The FIVE times each year you NEED to write things in your journal

Is there something in the way?

All that “stuff” you’ve got, is it helping?

When it comes to to getting the right things done, and making sure you’re working on your priorities, how are you doing…What you’re doing? There is a saying that a “clean house is an indicator of a messy mind.” But, I don’t completely buy it. What if a clear space acted as a magnet of good ideas? That’s how I like to think about it. If you want to learn how to be less frustrated with all the stuff that’s lying around, listen in to this episode of the podcast. I know you want more freedom to think clearly, and be more innovative. Here you go!

Episode 191 – When you hear what they complain about

Click here to subscribe in iTunes

Click here to subscribe in Stitcher Radio

Are you losing an opportunity to learn?

Did you know a complaint is the kindest thing they can give you?

When it comes time to making your best a little bit better, where do you go to get the advice you need? Some leaders wait for their 360 reviews. Other leaders hope their teams/vendors/clients/managers give them feedback “just-in-time.” Still others are too busy in their day to day to even notice if/when things are off. Don’t be one of those leaders. Instead, actively pursue the complaints. In doing so, you gain an advantage.

In this episode, you will learn…

  • We’re on the countdown…8 more episodes until we celebrate 200!
  • Jason made a HUGE offer, but ya gotta listen to both this AND last week’s podcast
  • The fastest way to get from Point A to Point Z
  • What Jason learned as a high school teacher that changed the game. BIG TIME!
  • What you can learn by asking people to complain. (That’s the POINT of this episode!)

Episode 190 – When you are committed to winning

Click here to subscribe in iTunes

Click here to subscribe in Stitcher Radio

Are you committed?

Is winning a “nice to” or a “HAVE to”?

I spent an hour on a video chat yesterday with a client I’m working with in Harare, Zimbabwe. Yes, you read that correctly… A book reader in Africa has invited us to create and facilitate a “Leadership Development Symposium” for three groups to come and study together. For the first 30 minutes we talked, we shared stories of our experiences: Linda has been “leading the community” for more than 30 years, and she discovered my book when a TED Speaker – Saki Mafundikwa – brought it to her after he and I met in Portland, Oregon last July!

This week’s podcast uncovers some of the secrets I’ve discovered over the years of studying high performance workplace performance. First of all “work” is a word we sometimes mis-understand. You see, some people think work is something they “go to” and “get paid for.” That’s not our definition. To us here at The Womack Companies, work is what we do because we see something that could be #better. (Yes, we DO use the hashtag before the word better…)

In this episode, you’ll also learn…

  • What happens when you commit to something with your heart AND mind.
  • Jason has traveled to San Francisco and Marin County.
  • Jason’s passport is going to get stamped a LOT over the next 6 months.
  • Why “thinking” isn’t enough. You have to ___  __________ if you’re going to achieve more.
  • What you can do with a “REAL LIFE” situation to make progress on, and stress about less!

Are you a leader?

Would people follow you?

Recently, an old colleague called me for a chat. About 10 minutes in to the conversation he said, “I’m thinking of joining Get Momentum, but I’m not sure that I’m a leader.” I had to pause. And think. I asked him, “Would you say that other people around you listen to your ideas and advice?” He said they did. I asked, “Do you follow up with people after you’ve met with them to check in on their progress [he works in personal finance].” He said he did. Well, let me be the one to tell you, there are THREE things great leaders do, and you’ll hear all about them in this podcast.

In this episode, you’ll also learn…

  • One of Jason’s writing mentors gave him the BEST advice EVER!
  • The Leadership Skill of “delegation” will change you for the #Better.
  • What to do when you see someone “wandering in the dark”.
  • The Get Momentum Leadership Retreat starts next week!.
  • It’s almost February! Can you believe it?
