Are you smart?

As in, “the smartest person in the room?”

It’s a fine line, the whole “I’m smart / you’re smart” thing. There’s a meeting you’re heading to, or a conference you’re attending, or even a phone call you’re going to take where you’ll be in a position to (1) learn something and (2) teach something. Ok, so maybe YOU wouldn’t call it teaching, let’s not get hung up on semantics; if you share something you know, and someone else didn’t know it, you could say they “learned something and you were in the vicinity.” In this episode, I’ll share with you what I think about people who declare they’re the smartest person in the room…

In this episode, you’ll also learn…

  • Any idea how much time Jason has spent in Ojai this month?
  • There are two things you COULD do if you’re the smartest person in the room.
  • What Jason thinks when he’s surrounded by “really smart” people.
  • There’s a one-two punch to win at up-leveling your skills.
  • You can save $100 by registering for the Get Momentum Leadership Retreat!

Please do leave us a question, an idea, a prompt below, so we know what YOU think of this ‘cast.

If it’s time to make new habits, you need this podcast. I promise!

What are you waiting for?

How is that working?

Later… It’ll never be here, I can promise you that. Really, it’s never going to be “later,” it’s ALWAYS right now. I remember when I learned that, and who I learned it from. A mentor of mine, his name is Steve, told me over lunch one day, “Jason, it’s always now. No matter what you think about, what you plan, what you hope for, you have to put things in the present tense. You already have everything you need. And, what you need later, you’ll have it.” You know who else would say that? Richard Branson! Here’s the quote of his that has taken the the Internet by storm lately,

“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!”

In this episode, you’ll also learn…

  • Why is Jason in Novato, California today?
  • Jason learned something important from his Grandpa.
  • The Get Momentum leadership retreat is around the corner.
  • You can think #Better about what you have to do…
  • After you read Chapter 5 of Jason’s book, schedule a meeting!

Are you in position to Get Things Done?

Do you know how?

A leader defines herself by the things she gets done. Bottom line, are you seen as a Go To Leader? Are you someone who exudes confidence and other people look to for ideas, advice, counsel and acknowledgement? Having a “good day” at work takes more than simply checking things off a list; in this week’s podcast you’ll hear the three things Jason recommends to get…the RIGHT things done.

In this episode, you’ll also learn…

  • Do you know what’s coming in February for the Get Momentum community?
  • Jason is in ________ today.
  • Both Jason AND Jodi worked for a popular “productivity” author. Do you know who?
  • There is something you can do to save time…every day.
  • You can save $100 on the upcoming Leadership Retreat if you listen to the end of the episode!

Please do leave us a question, an idea, a prompt below, so we know what YOU think of this ‘cast.

Subscribe to or Review the Your Best Just Got Better Podcast in iTunes!

Are you thinking big enough?

If you could think bigger, and make more…?

When you pause long enough to think about the people closest to you – your family, your friends, your neighbors, your coworkers, your association members – do you like how they think? An even better question is, “Do you like how you think and what you talk about when you’re together with them? This year, this month, this week…TODAY!, I’m asking you think about how you think. And, do it bigger.
In this episode, you will learn…
  • How you can get 30 minutes a day of focused, thinking time. I promise.
  • How to talk and think and dream with the people in your life.
  • What you can do today to think “a little bit bigger”
  • We are ONE MONTH away from starting the www.LeadershipRetreat.US
  • The Get Momentum “theme” of January is: Lead More Successful Meetings

Are you visiting with family today?

Are you looking to make 2015 better?

As you’ll hear in today’s episode, I almost DIDN’T publish one of these for you this week. You see, I know it’s a holiday and all. So, listen in to find out WHY I did get this done, and sent it to you.

Now, as you look toward next year, ask yourself, “Am I going to be better in 12 months?” If you answered that question with a “Yes,” I’ll ask you a follow-up question: “What is the ONE thing you know you need to be doing more of, or more consistently in order to be better in a year?” If I could give you a tactic, here’s what I’d say, “Write down what you just thought of. Put in on your computer monitor, or on the front of your notebook that is always with you. And, look at it EVERY SINGLE DAY. As I wrote in my book, you get better at what you focus on getting better at.

In this episode, you’ll also learn…

  • Why Jason published a podcast episode the day he’s celebrating Christmas!
  • How to get TWO FREE months of Get Momentum coaching.
  • Why Jason thinks the Beatles (yes, the band!) would have loved the book.
  • What “Toyota” manufacturing has to do with “Leadership Development.”
  • Finally, this “could be” one of the last podcast episodes that Jason records for you!

Ok all, we LOVE reading your comments in the box below. So, click to rate the podcast, and leave your comments and questions below. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

It is time, there are just 6 days left in the year, to decide to take things much, much more seriously. See you on the other side!

What if you were more persistent?

What goal do you have to “Stick To”?

Studying, working alongside, and coaching some of the most effective and successful entrepreneurs, athletes and managers in the world, I’ve learned a thing or two about persistence. In fact, while I was at the PopTech.org conference in Camden, Maine last October, I made this one of my “4th Questions” that I asked people. (If you don’t know what I mean when I say “4th question,” email me. I’ll send that section of my book to ya!) During the conversation with my new “friends,” I’d ask, “What goal do you have to Stick To in order to make happen in the next year or two?”

It was so cool. As people shared some of their deepest goals and biggest dreams, we stayed in what I call the “energy of the possible.” Over the past month, I’ve sent emails to three people, with ideas that I’ve continued to think about related to our conversation. Tell me, do you have someone on your team who’s continuing to think about your goals, even when you’re not? It’s kinda awesome to have those people on your team. I can speak from experience.

In this episode, you’ll also learn…

  • How to surround yourself by and with people who will ask you BIG questions.
  • One of the BEST tactics Jason knows of to experience more success and achieve more goals.
  • There are three OTHER tactics you could be learning about this month.
  • A “dictionary definition” of the word, Perseverance.
  • Where Jason will be in the next week or so!

A Year From Now…

Have you thought about that yet?

It’s “that time of the year.” I’ve made two different Spotify playlists for holiday music (one to play during the “in-between-times” during seminars this month, the other to play in my hotel room or office while I’m working!). Now, since I celebrate Christmas, I did write to Santa to ask him for the one thing I want this year…In case any of you know someone who works at Specialized Bikes, let them know Santa’s gonna come by to pick up my bicycle!

Ok, speaking of things going well, in this podcast episode I’m going to continue “pulling the curtain open” on the 4 things you can do this month to prepare for an even better 2015.

In this episode, you’ll also learn…

  • Did you know you can email Jason any time???
  • Three things that bring people down.
  • Where in the world is Jason?
  • The #1 tactic that Get Momentum members learn to “get better” every day.
  • What Confucius, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Paine, Peter Drucker and Jason Womack say about the absolute power (and necessity) of reflection.

If you leave a comment in the text box below, I’m going to see that and I’m going to comment … on your comment. Let’s get the discussion going!

Next month, the new year is here. If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself, and make that change…

If it’s time to make new habits, you need this podcast.
I promise!!

Episode 181 – The 5 People Who Influence You the Most

Click here to subscribe in iTunes

Click here to subscribe in Stitcher Radio

Are the right people on your team?

If you know what drags you down, will you change?

Twice in my professional career, I’ve had to leave jobs NOT because of the work, but because of the community I had become a part of. In 1999 and again in 2006 I realized that the power of the people was overwhelming my ability to do MY work here on the planet. That was when I started to research this sociological phenomenon I call “the people, not the work.”

In this episode, you will learn…

  • People leave people, they don’t necessarily quit the work.
  • There are just a few people you can talk to who are there to bring you down.
  • There is ONE thing you can do tomorrow morning that will RADICALLY change how good or how bad your day is.
  • Next year, Get Momentum members will learn 12 “Leadership Skills.”
  • What three other things Get Momentum members say they need to be better at.
