What’s Your Current H2I (Head/Heart Influences) List?

Current H2I (Head/Heart Influences):
“That which we expose our head and heart to, influences both head and heart.”
On a daily basis we are constantly choosing what we allow our minds and hearts to focus on through our eyes and ears. Just like the people we hang out with, what we expose our head and heart to, does influence who we are, who we become, and how we behave. What are you currently “showing” your head and heart? Here’s a snapshot of my current H2I list:

Habits vs. Goals

Habits vs. Goals = A World of Difference in Actions and Outcomes

“First forget inspiration.
Habit is more dependable.
Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not.
Habit is persistence in practice.”

— Octavia Butler

In my work coaching leaders to increase their “effectivity,” I am constantly amazed how many leaders have never made the connection that the real game changer in changing behavior and reaching outcomes is practicing habits, and not focusing solely on goals.
