The importance of our health cannot be overstated. Energy is a renewable resource but just like water, it can be depleted, leaving us in a state of crisis without it. In my book The Enemies of Excellence, I introduced the concept of Systematic Renewal. This means deliberately setting aside time for seeking out activities that regenerate the energy we need to stay on track with the demands on our lives.

Much of the success we seek in life begins with our relationships. The people who run in our social circles and show up in our weekend plans are key indicators of the lives we lead. As human beings, we are mirrors. Inevitably, we absorb and reflect the language, behaviors and even mannerisms of those we spend the most time with. This should come as no surprise. Hasn't life always worked this way?

Dreams are often something we place on the back burner--simmering alongside all of life's tasks, priorities, and responsibilities but today I'm going to ask you to crank up the heat. Dreaming is not something reserved for later or when we have some free time. Dreams are for now! We need the energy and passion they bring us and the fuel that help us forge onward. Dreams are the driving force of innovation and the spark that expresses our deepest desires.

Part of granting ourselves permission means learning to transform our thinking. It's not as easy as it sounds. One of the hardest faculties to discipline is the mind. Thought patterns are deeply entrenched into our brains. Like rainwater taking the path of least resistance, negative thoughts will follow suit. Negative thinking is a bad habit. But stronger than pessimism is the power of positive thoughts.

We are all subconsciously waiting on that green light--the approval of someone we trust and respect. It could be an employer, a colleague, a teammate, a spouse or whoever's voice speaks the loudest in our lives. Permission plays a healthy role. Can you image the world without it? Permission guides us within healthy parameters and keeps our lives and relationships safe. Permission is a good thing.

The final piece of creating the culture of openness and honesty you desire requires learning how to shift from playing defense to offense after a crisis has occurred. You have the right team in place, you have the problem solving strategies, and now it's time to build the bridge from damage control to crisis resolution.

This week we put our Leading Through Crisis series on pause to hear from Coach Dianna on the lessons life can teach us through seasons of uncertainty. Change can enrich our growth as leaders if we approach it the right way. Tune in and enjoy Dianna's wisdom and life experience in this area!

We pick up in this series by diving right into the thick of a crisis situation. We now know how to face reality, be realistic with our timeline, and create a solution by leaning into the team entrusted to us. In all my years as a leadership coach and friend, I've learned the most in moments spent alongside leaders who are picking up the pieces after failure strikes. Crisis has a way of purifying what is at the root of our hearts and intentions and letting the truth float to the top for all to see.

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege to train and grow with other Coachwell leaders here in Central Oregon. We met to encourage one another to develop positive results in our own lives and the lives of those we coach and lead.
