We all bump up against internal challenges that get in our way. The good news is we also have a pocket full of strengths that can shift the energy.
If you are bumping up against Procrastination
What would happen if you brought the Power of Play to the task at hand?

Here’s a cool short cut to creating a project focused art calendar or adding fun and color to your daily planner or journal.
At the link below you will find a couple of free sheets that you can download and print out. Then it’s cut and paste. I use adhesive sheets
for that. You can back your 8 1/2 x 11 downloaded page with it then cut out what you want, peel off the barrier paper and stick it in your journal or calendar.
If you poke around the website you will find some other designs as well.
Leader vs Leader Cards
What makes a leader great?
This question is the starting place for Leader vs Leader
. Using this deck of 64 historical leaders to facilitate conversations on leadership will give you plenty of material to work with.
By comparing two historical leaders to each other you encourage reflection and engagement.
One way to use Leader vs Leader
in a group setting is to pair participants up and give each a Leader vs Leader card. The pairs engage in conversation about the traits, accomplishments and impact of each leader to determine who was the better leader of the two and why. You then bring everyone together to share the learning. Expect this to be a high energy activity with lots of learning.
If you are engaged in leadership development through facilitation, coaching, training or teaching, this would be a great tool for you.

If you are in business for yourself you probably do a fair amount of writing. It can sometimes get routine. Try a creative writing exercise to loosen things up a bit.
The prompts in the deck are divided into 4 types of prompt – Focus, Awareness, Momentum, Expression. I chose one from Focus and one from Expression.
From Focus: "Watch the sky and write one line."
From Expression: "Go to the closet, create a costume, and come out writing."
