How To Fix The Challenge Of Wanting Learning Opportunities But No Time To Learn

Published

on

Ready for a staggering statistic? According to LinkedIn’s 2018 Workplace Learning Report, 94% of team members said they would stay at their company longer if it invested in their career development. Now, here is the kicker: the report also said that the top reason team members said they felt held back from learning is because they didn’t have the time to learn the skills they needed to.

How do we fix this dilemma? By providing a workplace that offers learning opportunities that also provides the time for team members to take advantage of those learning opportunities. This will spark creativity because I know that I’m always happiest and most productive when I’m learning something new.

We get it – everyone is busy. We go to work and we are chained to our desks (or today: our laptops and iPhones) with mounds of work to get through and we form routines and things eventually become mundane and ultimately boring. Things don’t have to be this way, though.

HOW ARE TEAM MEMBERS ACTUALLY SPENDING THEIR TIME?

The first step is to get feedback from team members on how they are spending their time at work. These questions can be asked on many subjects at work. For example, how many meetings are absolutely necessary? Rethink why you have meetings. If there is too much email or point-to-point communication preventing people from learning, it is time to really rethink the company’s time management.

WHERE DO TEAM MEMBERS LIKE TO LEARN?

Second, find out how, when and where employees like to learn so you can gain context to establish a new way of learning, which we are all trying today to facilitate via different workplace spacial designs. In the LinkedIn report, team members said the following:

·       68% of team members want to learn at work

·       58% of team members want to learn at their own pace

·       49% of team members prefer to learn at the point of need

Not every type of learning is going to happen in a classroom or even warrants days off at a time. There are plenty of informal and social settings to learn in. The real key is to connect the bridge between how your team is spending their time and what the actual definition of learning looks like in this day and age.

It is entirely too easy to say that we are too busy to learn new things, but the truth is, we are hurting our careers and our companies by staying stagnant and not growing towards new ideas and processes. Dig deep and talk to your team and find out what they want to learn, how they want to learn and when they want to learn it.

Make it happen for you and your team and your business will experience success it has never experienced before.

Law Of Attraction: 7 EPIC Conor McGregor Quotes On Success

Published

on

In less than three years, Conor McGregor has risen from an unknown entity to a global icon, smashing every financial record in the UFC — a huge reason the fight organization sold for $4.2 billion in 2016.

In November of 2016, McGregor completed what he, in his own words, had visualized throughout the whole year — hoisting two belts high atop the UFC cage in Madison Square Garden as the only two-belt world champion in the organization’s history.

Less than a year later, McGregor pocketed another $100 million as he, somehow, landed a mega-fight with undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather (despite no boxing experience) in what was projected as the first billion-dollar fight in human history.

His secret? Well, The Secret — the law of attraction.

“If you have a clear picture in your head that something is going to happen and a clear belief that it will happen no matter what then nothing can stop it. It is destined to happen. It’s perfect.”

Offering a window into Conor’s mind, we put together 7 epic quotes on the law of attraction.

1. On visualization

“This is the law of attraction. In this struggle, when things are going good and you visualize good things happening , that’s easy. What’s not easy is to do is when things are going bad and you’re visualizing the good stuff. And that’s what I was able to do. Visualizing good things in times of struggle, when you can do that, that really makes the law of attraction work.”

2. Appreciating surroundings

“You need to appreciate your surroundings and be grateful for it, and that’s when good things happen. To have that bitterness and negativity, that’s when things go bad. I think the fact that I appreciate everything and that I’m grateful for the things around me, that’s why it’s going so good for me.”

3. Manifesting

“If you can see it here,” he said at the UFC 194 press conference in December 2015. “And have the courage enough to speak it, it will happen. If you put out what you truly believe in, it will create the law of attraction and it becomes reality.”

4. Self belief

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. The power of choice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Manifesting a Bentley

“Even though I was having trouble at home, even though I had no job, I was still able to feel like it was. Basically using my imagination, like a kid, using my imagination. I was driving my girlfriend’s car, shaking down the road. And I swear to God, I was sitting in traffic and visualized — holding the steering wheel, visualizing — driving a brand new car, visualizing good things.”

7. “I done everything I said I was going to do.”

“I done everything I said I was gonna do. I was LAUGHED at when I was gonna win my second world title. ‘That’s not going to happen.’ An Irishman winning a UFC [world title] — I was laughed at when I said that. And I done. It’s only January 2017 and I’m already the face of the UFC. The face of boxing. The face of the WWE. And the face of Hollywood!

5 Time Management Hacks For Your Work/Life Balance

Published

on

(Editor’s Note: The following article is a guest post by superstar entrepreneur and tech investor Jonathan Schultz.)

Everyone strives to maintain that perfect work-life balance. Having a fulfilling career and healthy home life is a tough combination to achieve, but if you learn how to manage your time well, it can be one. Here are five time-management hacks to keep your work/life balance in check.

HAVE A REALISTIC SCHEDULE

Setting a schedule the night before is a classic trick that is entirely effective. A to-do list allows you to cross off the things you have accomplished and gives you a sense of gratification. It also is a great motivator to keep completing tasks until you have finished everything for the day. The key is to be realistic about what you can accomplish. Don’t jam your schedule leaving little to no room for breaks or downtime. This will do the opposite of helping you maintain a solid work/life balance.

BREAK TASKS UP

It can be so overwhelming to look at a huge task you need to do if you don’t break it down into smaller tasks. Instead of trying to clean your entire home in one day, clean different areas of your home on different days. This way, you won’t be overwhelmed by these larger projects and you can actually finish them on time.

SCHEDULE “ME TIME”

If you are constantly working and always on your phone or laptop, there is a good chance you are not relaxing or giving yourself a much-needed break. When you get home from work, put your phone away and revel in some “me time.” Do something to unwind and disconnect from work completely. Take a bath, read a book, watch TV or exercise. Just do something that will help slow your mind down and create a degree of separation between your work and home life. This is one of the most important hacks to maintain a healthy balance.

DETERMINE YOUR PEAK HOURS

Are you typically up before the sun or staying away until 2 am? Knowing what time you operate the best at will help you schedule your most tedious and important tasks at this time. If you are a morning person, perform your tasks the require the most focus in the morning. You can use the afternoon or night to do repetitive tasks like making calls or catching up on emails. You may discover that what usually takes you an hour to do in the afternoon only takes you thirty minutes to do in the morning.

BOOST PRODUCTIVITY

Two of the biggest things we neglect are sleep and exercise – two things that can actually significantly improve your productivity. Studies and research have proved that exercise can help keep you alert, making it much easier to accomplish tasks. Of course, getting enough sleep and getting in short naps throughout the day can do amazing things for your mental health and helps you from feeling fatigued and burnt out. If you are more productive at work, you can get home earlier from work and have more time for yourself.

Openstage: 3 Brilliant Gems From Investor/CEO David Meltzer

Published

on

In case you missed it, one of our previous openstage events featured an all-star crew of entertainers, DJs, and—of course—a super entrepreneur on the stage.

Just a quick 411 on what openstage is…

So once a month, WealthLAB hosts an exclusive, limited-capacity event in Brooklyn, NY with a rockstar entrepreneur on stage, basically breaking down their secrets to success. 

(Then there’s standup comedy, DJs, SICK cocktails and networking, but that’s another story for another time…)

This time, we had none other than legit rockstar entrepreneur, social media star and investor David Meltzer on the stage, interviewed by real estate developer and WealthLAB founder Philip Michael.


David’s a Top 100 business coach, one of the most sought-after public speakers and host of Entrepreneur Magazine’s super podcast “The Playbook.”
(You may have seen him on Gary Vee’s stuff as well. That’s the guy he built his following with.)

And of course the talk was EPIC. Here are three brilliant gems dropped by David on stage. 

1) Say thank you every day 

One thing most people don’t do is appreciate the things around them. Of course, the vibration of gratitude triggers attraction, a 0.1-second strategy David said you can implement immediately. 

“It took me nine months to do,” he said. “But now that I do it, things that I want in life come to me faster, I’m happier and my life is abundant.”

The strategy? Simply say “thank you” before you go to sleep every night for 20 days. 

“It will change your life,” he said. 

2) What your parents need from you

“Your parents only want to know a few things,” David said during the talk, after which many became emotional. One, that you’re healthy. That you’re happy. That you love them.

“That’s all they want to know,” he says. “So take a minute to text them or call them and tell them you’re happy, healthy and that you love them.”

3) Building a following: why followers don’t matter

Of course, David’s managed to build one of the fastest-growing channels on social media, propelling to nearly 300K Instagram followers, seemingly overnight. 

“I didn’t know what DM’ing meant,” he said, bringing laughs from the crowd. “I thought it was saying your initials to indicate a message.”

When asked by Philip—who, like David, has a column on Entrepreneur.com—on how to build a following, his message was clear. Number one, know Gary Vee. “I was consulting for their sports agency. He became my mentor on social media,” he says.

Now, if you don’t know Gary Vee, you still have access to people who can help. “Never be afraid to ask. People would love to help,” he said.
More importantly, don’t worry about the followers. Just worry about building ambassadors. “Selena Gomez has 166M followers but can’t sell out a movie,” David said. “So what does that tell you?”

Instead, playing the long game, impacting two people who then impact two and before you know it, your reach compounds. Naturally.
