The Successful Coach

Peter Stewart


Do you always feel like there’s a lot going on in your brain? Are you having a hard time when it comes to problem-solving and decisions making?

How do you leverage your brain at work?

Our brain is always functioning and performing behind the scenes…that’s why it demands so much from your body.

We need to differentiate the decisions, changes, and choices that are important from those that aren’t. Recognize that not every activity you engage in requires the same level of brainpower.

Schedule your day from a ‘brain energy management’ perspective and not just an ‘importance’ perspective.

It is also very important to give yourself a little quiet time to mentally adjust and process before making big decisions. Let your mind connect the problems that are still unsolved and your brain will solve them behind the scene. You just need to turn off distractions to listen to some of those answers.
