Why Do You Quit?

“Reward people more frequently instead of using incentives that don’t create solutions for better outcomes continuum and are all or nothing.” – Raj Gavurla 

High Value Capital Rewarding

Examples of rewarding people more frequently:

  1.  When you have a good job and are paid with incentives for better outcomes continuum and you receive an unexpected package for doing your job well.  It’s a letter with a significant contribution award, and a check (insert the dollar amount), it’s a letter with an outstanding achievement award, and a check (insert the dollar amount), it’s a promotion, it’s more responsibility with relationship capital with better pay and incentives.
  2. It’s additional education/learning/training to work on and working on an innovative project to help your organization and teammates to make breakthroughs is your life and career.
  3. It’s sharing appropriately with your colleagues (teammates) to create better teamwork and learn how to be better colleagues (teammates). 
  4. It’s being promoted.
  5. It’s being flexible to understand your colleague (teammate) needs flex time and rearrangement of work to take care of a family member.
  6. It’s learning how to better yourself to better your boss, colleagues (teammates).
  7. Insert your examples.  Do your employees know this exists in your organization?
  8. It’s not all or nothing incentives and it’s not fear of punishment.  Neither is inspiring and motivating. 
  9. It’s some win more, each wins, and no one loses unless there is violence.

Examples of using rewards and incentives for better outcomes continuum:

  1. A 401k plan incrementally and fully vested after five years.
  2. Paying for support services in human performance, life, and organizational development and breakthroughs to help and work together to make breakthroughs in nurturing, developing, building, growing, and evolving your organization.
  3. It’s learning why, how, and what to do to innovate for a cultural and entrepreneurial leadership ecosystem continuum. 
  4. Making personnel decisions
  5. Voting rights on the direction of the organization
  6. Employee stock purchase plan.
  7. Options incrementally increasing and maturing with service.
  8. Percentage of company ownership.
  9. It’s using diversity and inclusive for more strategic effectiveness and systemic efficiencies.  
  10. It’s having business and corporate social responsibility in the workplace and being a corporate community citizen so there is no poverty. 

Why do you quit?

Why do you quit?  At this stage in your life and career live your greatest dreams, mission, vision, clear goals, and aspirations – they become greater by helping others (people) live their greatest dreams, mission, vision, clear goals, and aspirations – they become greater.  Living purposefully is essential and quitting is usually attributed to “you (or they) don’t want to.” This is superficial. As an excelling expert in human performance, life, and organizational development and breakthroughs, there are three primary reasons why you quit.

One, you’re not making performance improvement and breakthroughs. To make performance improvement and breakthroughs one needs breakthroughs in learning to nurture, develop, build, grow, evolve, and make breakthroughs in each.  What are your examples?  It’s simple and measure able.  If it’s hard, something is wrong.  With my mental performance skills and life tools I make breakthroughs. See my Seven Steps: Live Your Greatest Dreams, Mission, Vision, Clear Goals, and Aspirations – They Become Greater at the end of my post.

Two, you’re hurt (injured) physically and/or mentally. Having the right treatment and the right support services makes it easier.  What are your examples?  It’s simple and measure able.  If it’s hard, something is wrong.  With my mental performance skills and life tools I make breakthroughs.  See my Seven Steps: Live Your Greatest Dreams, Mission, Vision, Clear Goals, and Aspirations – They Become Greater at the end of my post.

Three, you do not have the right resources to nurture, develop, build, grow, evolve, and make breakthroughs in each. This includes high value financial, health, and relationships.  What are your examples?  It’s simple and measure able.  If it’s hard, something is wrong.  With my mental performance skills and life tools I make breakthroughs.  See my Seven Steps: Live Your Greatest Dreams, Mission, Vision, Clear Goals, and Aspirations – They Become Greater at the end of my post.

Here are my seven steps to help you experience breakthroughs in learning to nurture, develop, build, grow, evolve, and make breakthroughs so you don’t quit.  

Better “The Zone Effect”

When you endlessly learn knowing how to be a better colleague (teammate) your job (work) is much more rewarding and fun.  Most places are trying to out do one another instead of consistently becoming better colleagues (teammates).  When you are able to consistently bring out the gifts, talents, and skills in you and your colleagues (teammates) with the right learning and support services you Better “The Zone Effect”.  Many are familiar with “The Zone” however since you are not on this planet by yourself Better “The Zone Effect” is to better you, your teammates, team, and supervisor(s) and boss(es) for more win more fun rewarding.  Why not have everyone participating and making individual, colleagues (teammates), team, and organization development and breakthroughs?

Think of a project where this occurred.  How can you nurture, develop, build, grow, and evolve making performance improvements and breakthroughs so this consistently occurs?  I’ve been on many teams and this is what determines the amount of success and rewards.

When playing basketball what inspires and motivates me are being on the court with my teammates.  We help and support each other and it’s a feeling I can’t fully describe.  Yes, I play basketball to Better “The Zone Effect”.    Besides playing for my teammates, I’m also playing for my coaches, fans, city, and my crowd (advanced mental performance skill) .

Describe An Experience, Situation, Or Sports Using Better Words & Better Language Instead of Violent Words & Language

“Win fun enjoy living a robust life making lives better to set personal best records experiencing intelligent breakthroughs in human performance, life, organizational development & breakthroughs.  That means some win more, each wins, and no one loses unless there is violence.” – Raj Gavurla

Seeing the violence occurring locally, nationally, and throughout the world, what can be done to bring civility? Why are people verbally attacking each other maliciously, denigrating, and degrading them self or another person? 

This doesn’t honor the human dignity people need to help and work together to forward, elevate, and thrive humanity individually and collectively to raise the standard of living making people a better life, better living, and better future.

The English language is a lexicon of robust words of vibrancy and comity. How come more people don’t use them instead of violent words to describe non-violent experiences, situations, and sporting events? From the early days one can think we’ve come a long way from having to literally fight to survive and eat daily. Therefore, using violent words instead of killing was the next level of success. Hence, the fight/flight response. Important to know there are more responses bringing an abundance of sharing and connection. How about the sharing with each other without putting each other on the defensive response, the only win fun better common outcomes response, or the make lives better response, prevent deaths response, and save lives response?

With this sharing, connection, and building relationships with good communication more is learned and apply the learning. What are examples:

  1. Someone says “we, they, you or I killed them” or “I killed him or her.” when referring to an experience, situation, or sporting event. Really, who was killed? Thankfully, no one.
  2. In business or on a team people dismissing an idea or someone’s input saying, “you don’t know anything” or taking something a colleague said out of context and having a “grudge” against them instead of talking with them to help seeing this as an opportunity to correct a colleague to promote your values, good communication, and good relationship building to make your organization stronger. Your colleague will be thankful for you making the effort to embrace them versus disliking them and other colleagues will sense a good workplace culture and environment.
  3. When watching basketball, I hear announcers say and “a dagger” or “go for the jugular” to describe a three pointer or dunk. I’m glad there wasn’t “a dagger” and everyone’s “jugular” is in place. I would much rather hear it was an amazing high arching shot soft through the net or they are finishing or closing the game.
  4. Then, there is the “punch them in the mouth” or “we’ll kick your _ _ _.” Gratefully, there was no fist fight and no one was kicked. I would much rather hear win fun better outcomes the right way or what’s important is what we do and how we perform or play not what they do.

This usage of violent and malicious words and language is projecting itself into politics. Whether it’s during a presidential campaign or when politicians rally their base to “fight”. Some people take this literally being frustrated, have no emotional control, and cause societal violence. Why not instead rally them to “win fun better common outcomes” or “work together”?

These are just a few of the examples coming to my mind. My learning point is each example can be spruced with better words and better language making the description of the experience or situation more meaningful and pleasurable. It also becomes an educational teaching moment on people skills, realizing the essence of life, citizenship, and sportsmanship.

Unfortunately, these examples carry over into our kids lives as they watch t.v. and have social and educational experiences, situations, and play sports at school. The need for the use of better words and better language is a way to eschew conflict and violence in our kids school and during sporting events. The Bestie Boys lyrics “you missed two classes and no homework” “you gotta fight for your right to party”. Why not “you gotta only win fun better outcomes for your right to party?” Why are there fights at kids games by kids or adults? That’s non-sense! We don’t do that here.

By using better words and better language when describing an experience or situation you create good communication and good communication builds good relationships.

The following is my value graphic I use when helping and working together with an individual, group, or team to develop and make breakthroughs.

I’m always learning and apply the learning. Apply the use of better words and better language to see how civility and dignity by each person builds good communication, good relationships, and brings more civility locally, nationally, world wide, and globally.

Reflect on your experiences, situations, and sporting events. Could you have used better words, better language to create good communication and build good relationships to help and work together towards only win fun common better outcomes? Some win more, each wins, and no one loses unless there is violence.

What refulgent effect would this have in your family, with friends, in your workplace culture and in your environment? Would there be less stress, less anxiety, less yelling, less unhappiness, less loneliness, more civility, better outcomes, compassion, respect, helping and working together instead of denigrating and degrading your own or another person’s brain and mindset?

Apply the learning. This slight adjustment in our frame of mind I know and believe ignites peace over violence one on one, one by one.

10 Easier Tips for Home, Job, and Work Success Living With A Mental Health Condition

“Help people live their greatest dreams and goals.” – Raj Gavurla

To help you with mental health continuum in your organization. As a very strong mental health advocate this is my solution to learn how to make it easier. This is at home and in the workplace in addition to the right treatment (with or without medication) and/or the right therapy.

Solution:

1. Employers allow people with a mental health condition to work with highly individually customized (reasonable) accommodations, right support system, and right support services .  It’s very rewarding making an employee’s life better and benefit doing so because they continue to deliver a good job and good work for you in a capacity that benefits everyone involved.

2. Have dreams and goals for your life and work.  See yourself successful.

3.  Learn how to control your emotion using right thinking if having intrusive thoughts or images using your wisdom.

Phrases: “I control emotion.”, “I don’t see that.” or “Don’t see that”, “I don’t hear that.” or “Don’t hear that”. 

4.  Listen to the right people.  

5. Listen to your body

6. Easier nutrition (no refined sugar, limit or no caffeine, 3-4 servings of fruit and veggies, 8 glasses of water, limit or no fried foods, limit or no alcohol, limit or no cheese, limit dessert, limit or no candy, limit or no late night eating)

7. Walk/Exercise and/or Run in a way towards your fitness goals without injury. Answer: What will be easier for you to do with you being fit?

8. Meditate for an hour daily. Feel your neurotransmitters and endorphins flow through your body.

9. Read to learn something for at least 20 minutes a day and apply the learning.

10. Do my mental performance skills and life tools workbook.
