Get Your Mojo Working

Get Your Mojo Working

It’s been a challenging time for all of us in this tumultuous economy and within the new ways of doing business.

More than ever, your success depends on your mojo.

That’s the thinking of preeminent leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith. He offers some advice on boosting your mojo in Mojo: How To Get It, How To Keep It And How To Get It Back If You Lose It.Goldsmith describes mojo as:

That positive spirit toward what we are doing now that starts from the inside and radiates to the outside.”

If you’ve lost your mojo or want to boost it, Goldsmith says change either You or It. By You, he means how you think, how you feel, what you say – basically everything about you that’s under your control. It means any influencing forces that are not you.

Here are seven of Goldsmith’s  specific actions that can help you change You or It::

  1. Establish criteria that matter to you — setting ground rules for your life can start you on the path to great mojo.
  2. Find out where you’re living — “where” is defined by how you balance short-term satisfaction and long-term benefit at work and home.
  3. Be the optimist in the room — there’s power in “going for it” and not being afraid to look foolish.
  4. Take away one thing— how would life look if you removed something big from your daily schedule?
  5. Rebuild one brick at a time — a wall is built one brick at a time. So’s your mojo.
  6. Live your mission in the small moments too — the small moments in our lives can make big statements about who we are.
  7. Swim in the bluewater — a new way to win can be to change the game!
