It’s Backwards; Create Value Add

“When there is value add it becomes easier” – Raj Gavurla

  

Sometime people say things without thinking of the situation, the person they are talking to, their environment, and who is present.  If this happens instead of internalizing giving them the benefit of the doubt use rational critical thinking to do value add.  Both create and receive shared success.

Examples:

1. “Help yourself”  This is backwards.  I’ve heard people say whether directly or about someone they don’t help themselves.  This is similar to giving someone a ten minute silent lunch which the student I mentor received from his teacher because he wasn’t paying attention.  He’s learning and depending on the subject or what we are discussing his attention grows or wanes.  So the answer is to talk about things that keep his attention.  No, because what he’s learning is important and value add to his development, growth, and future.

Applying my expertise in human performance, life, and organizational development and breakthroughs, reality is he wasn’t taught how to pay attention.  Attention is a human performance skill people are challenged with regardless of age, title, or occupation(s).  One of the most prevalent reasons attention is challenging is they have no link(s) in their mind to what they are learning so it can be synthesized and stored into long term memory.

Getting back to “help yourself”.  It’s an oxymoron.  When you help you help someone not yourself.  Yet, some people say this without rational critical thinking and I sometime say it although very rare.

2.  “Hard work” or “Work hard”.  If something is too hard or hard, something is wrong.  It’s “diligent work” or “work diligently”.

Googling the word “diligent” it means:

diligent | Definition of diligent in English by Oxford Dictionaries

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/diligent
Definition of diligent – having or showing care and conscientiousness in one’s work or duties.
 
3.  This notion you aren’t good and have to prove yourself is lunacy.  It’s a bromide.  Your coming from a place of negativity to a place of positive.  Some people call this motivational.  I don’t.  It’s reinforcing a pattern anyone can do without.  You have gifts, talents, and skills. I start with inspiration then motivation to create and achieve value add.  In whatever I do, most important to me is you apply the learning exactly as is and/or using your rational critical thinking achieve more success in all walks of life as applicable and appropriate.
 
4.  Stop telling someone else, yourself, or let someone say you “failed” or rate your performance as “fail”.  It’s insipid  to denigrate and degrade yourself or another person.  Use the words “not so good”.   It’s value add.  This is prevalent in all walks of life including schools and businesses.  Think about it.  Why put someone in a detrimental state of being after they are already disappointed?  Do you want to make it worse?  It’s irrational critical thinking.  Rational critical thinking is the use of the words “not so good”.  This is very powerful and I’ve seen people use it in life, health, business, sports, and more.  When using my daily workbook, the lowest rating of your day is “not so good”.  It’s much easier to come from a place of inspiration and not a place of negativity.  Never know, think, or feel you failed.  Value add is “not so good”.
 
5.  Someone shows you something they worked on, created, a service, product, or say something you’ve never heard of and your response, “what the hell is that”.  Hell is never for the greater good.  Using this word puts both people in a detrimental state of being.  It creates a visceral reaction.  We don’t do that here.  There is a much greater way.  When you talk with someone, share with them, or are in a relationship with a person,  an entity, or object (think of your favorite gift).  It’s either going in a value add direction or negative direction.  It’s never in a neutral place.
 
6.  Here’s an example of value add.  Someone’s advice is “repetitions”.  You’ve heard this from so many people.  How many repetitions have you done?  Do more and you’ll improve, be better, or the best.  That’s like saying if you do this this and that you’ll be “insert your dream or goal”.  Then, those who have this dream or goal would do so.  However, it’s not that simple.  I’ve heard the word “repetitions” in healthcare, in the business of speaking, from world class athletes, and many people in all walks of life achieving if “I do x amount of repetitions” I’ll be able to.  Repetitions has a plateau.  When you reach the plateau repetitions has a diminishing effect.  What’s the solution?  “quality repetitions”
 
“Quality repetitions” makes you not reach a plateau as there is much further for you to go and your outlook on achieving more success is worth looking forward to.  Apply the learning and implement the use of “quality repetitions” to become more skillful and grow your skills.  It’s value add.

My “The Zone” & “The Zone Effect”

My IT Band was injured so I reduced the intensity of my workout sessions and took some time off.  I’ve been using my foam roller and the dipping bird exercise and an exercise I learned while pursuing semi-pro basketball.  The basketball exercise gave me immediate patella tendinitis homeostasis after refereeing World Cup (it’s their World Cup) adult league coed and mens matches.

The point is I applied learning from years ago to help me heal this injury using an exercise that for me has multi-purposes.  Me and my exercise functional physiology trainer have been working on this.  She’ll like me talking to her about this.

Apply The Relationship of Your Inspiration & Motivation

“Take your current best and make it better with development and breakthroughs “

– Raj Gavurla

Growing your productive performance process is essential because it allows you to achieve development, breakthroughs, and records towards your greatest dreams and goals – they become greater.   When helping my client they either have motivation or want and need motivation.  I tell them to talk about it.  We do so in our session.  I ask why haven’t you said anything about your inspiration?   The silence or response is highly individual.

Your intrinsic inspiration creates greater intrinsic and extrinsic inspiration rewards.  Your intrinsic motivation creates greater intrinsic and extrinsic motivation rewards.  When you apply the relationship of your inspiration and motivation they have an inseparable relationship.  Your intrinsic inspiration and motivation creates greater intrinsic and extrinsic rewards.

Your intrinsic inspiration and motivation is highly individualized.  During my client’s sessions, I help and work with them to understand why the relationship of their inspiration and motivation creates greater intrinsic and extrinsic rewards.

“The Zone” (Individual) & “The Zone Effect” (Organization/Team/Teammates) Continuum:

“The Zone” & “The Zone Effect” is described as making performance improvements, breakthroughs, records, everything is in slow motion (everything slows down), time stands still (isn’t a deterring factor), distance stands still (isn’t a deterring factor), your life and performance feels effortless.  Neither is repeatable.  You are growing as a person, interconnected with your life, business, and sport(s); Your “The Zone Effect” Development, Breakthroughs, and Records.

“The Zone” (Individual) & “The Zone Effect” (Team)

When I’m performing my goal is being “in the zone” more often.  When I am, my teammates are “in the zone” and each has “the zone effect” development, breakthroughs, and records.  When the team talks about it it’s a fun relationships and learning experience.

This is important.  Only be “in the zone” when performing.  During your sessions of rest, relaxation, social outlets, and hobbies have fun and enjoyment.  Be your authentic self so you don’t have to be someone else.  It’s invigorating!

What Are Your Fun Win More Living Better Outcomes?

“We want to win more fun living better outcomes.” – Raj Gavurla

What are your win more fun living better outcomes?

Decades ago I had an epiphany “win” and over the decades this is what I learned:

In order to win you need to dream and have goals.  It’s known without the ability to dream you would go insane.  Yet, so many people leave dreams to fate and are not consciously conscious about dreaming, how to interpret and apply their unexpected dreams, and what their nightmares mean.

Secondly, stop comparing yourself to others.  Sure, you can do research to have a barometer, however, it’s your value add that makes the difference. You are at your unique and different place interconnected with your life, business, and sports.  Therefore, how does your life interconnect with your goals and what is the right support system for you.  This is where for each of your goals you form the right support system consisting of helpful services.

Thirdly, people are not living better outcomes.  See your knowledge, experience, skills, and passion for more fulfillment isn’t just to win.  What are the living better outcomes?  This is when the endorphins flow.  As you achieve living better outcomes, the wins become easier and you win more fun enjoying success and most importantly it’s more fulfilling.

Fourthly, in the interconnected of your life, business, and sports consistently have skills in each you are developing, building, and growing.  For each skill to migrate to the next stage you intelligently work by consistently scheduling sessions to learn how to learn, that are challenging towards a breakthrough in each stage.

A breakthrough is something you can develop, build, and grow and at times they ignite personal bests.  Examples of breakthroughs are:

  1. You’re celebrating life’s fondest moments with your family, teammates, community, and others.  This could be a special occasion/event, someone’s birthday, graduation, better job, birth of a child, or a reunion. Could be you helped your sister learn to ride a bike and when you let go after several attempts she takes off and you never have to help her again.
  2. You’re the third person in the company to interface to a particular system.
  3. You set a record in [insert business objective/goal].
  4. You ran a 10k after playing tennis when your intent was to run two miles because you felt and experienced “the zone.”.  After this breakthrough, you’re productive performance process foundation grows.
  5. You’re feeling effortless getting to the ball instead of having to exert a lot of effort.
  6. Your company won the innovation award in your industry and received the largest reward of the ten entries.

Therefore, consistently work intelligently challenging towards a breakthrough(s) with sessions for relaxation, social outlet, and hobbies. 

In helping and working with individuals, teams, and athletes interconnected with their life, business, and sports, they sometime have a business goal or objective to set a record.  This makes sense.  What doesn’t make sense is the learning from each other and work wasn’t fulfilling and you haven’t grown your productive performance process foundation because it’s not sustainable, teammates became worn out, or injury prone.  There were no sessions for relaxation, social outlet, and hobbies. This isn’t a way towards a fulfilling vibrant business or athlete.

In helping athletes at any level including a national athlete it’s not about win Olympic gold and medals.  It’s much greater.  It’s about living your greatest dreams and goals they become greater.  What are your fond memories, you won gold, the relationships, breakthroughs, successes, and records? You learned from your  support system, modeled someone, or many, however, it was your value add that made and make breakthroughs in you living your greatest dreams and goals they become greater.  That’s essential!

Learn how to learn and apply the learning.

“The Zone” (Individual) & “The Zone Effect” (Team)
I’m consistently developing, building, and growing my track sessions, tempo runs, and there is no way I could do so without my right support system (me and applying my expertise, track session organizer, exercise functional physiologist trainer, my family).  This is important.  Effectively and efficiently communicate with the people important to you about where and what you are doing.  If you don’t, they will diminish your energy creating mental, emotional, and/or physical block(s).  Instead, I tell them “I’m going to track. Wish me good luck” and they do.  Wow!  Energy is flowing.

Greenville, SC’s professional soccer team, Greenville Triumph, won their inaugural home opener 2-1 versus the Lansing Ignite.  It was sold out.  As I watched standing on the deck, I read the plays coming towards me.  In an instant, calmness became breakthroughs as the athletes ran towards me.  Although Lansing scored first, the ball was on their side of the field most of the first half and second half. Triumph won more fun living better outcomes.
