In nearly any situation, we can choose between two mindsets: a judgmental one, or a curious one. For example:
.
Someone posts an opinion on social media with which you disagree. You might write her off as foolish (judgment), or you might ask her a few questions (curiosity), such as what beliefs or life experiences led her to those conclusions. With curiosity you might learn a new perspective, or experience empathy, or practice respectfully agreeing to disagree.
.

Curiosity is open. Curiosity is kind. Curiosity tends to lead to more accurate findings. And in my profession - coaching - curiosity is an absolute job requirement!
.

Where might you replace judgment with curiosity this week? What might you discover? .

Earlier this week, after working with them for the past few months, I had the honor of watching nearly 50 leaders stand up and share their personal Purpose Statements as well as how they will positively impact the community. A completely inspiring experience, to say the least!
.
One reminder I offered near the end of our time together: You choose your legacy by choosing how you live, work, and lead every single day. Like I shared in yesterday’s post, it *all* matters. Small or large, one person or many, it all counts. .

Thank you to the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute for inviting me to facilitate the Community Connect program once again, the incredible committee members for all their behind-the-scenes efforts, and the extraordinary mentors and participants of the 2019 class! Congratulations to all! 🎉

The behind-the-scenes work you do to ensure the event runs smoothly. .

The kind greeting you give to the new person who looks uncomfortable.
.
The space you hold for your friend to share her grief.
.
The ‘thinking of you’ letter you send without any expectation in return.
.
The 85 million loads of laundry you have quietly completed. .

The words of affirmation you offer a coworker when he thinks his presentation went horribly.
.
Often the big, grand, loud, or center-stage actions seem to get the attention. But the small, quiet, meaningful gestures - they matter, too. .

Everything counts. Thank you for all you do, whether you are heaped with praise for it or not! You make a difference. 🙌🏻

One action I am attempting to weave more regularly into my weekly planning session is sending a card to someone who has reached a milestone, made a positive impact, or just somehow inspired me with their awesomeness. This has been so fun! I know how much I enjoy receiving unexpected mail (a few examples pictured in the background), and it makes me smile to think my notes might bring a bit of delight to someone else, too. .

Do you enjoy the art of sending handwritten notes in the mail? 📫

Nothing says ‘fresh start’ like a new day, work week, month, *and* quarter occurring all at once! With this auspicious beginning, decide *now* who and how you want to be in the world going forward - then hop to it. No time like the present to live with clarity and intention! 🍎 .

What word best captures who / how you want to be in the world, starting now? .

A peaceful moment this evening amid a very full week! In these final days of Q1 (!), keep this reminder from A. A. Milne in mind: You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think! 😊 .

Whether you’re inspired by spring cleaning, Marie Kondo, a life transition, or something else entirely, a few things to consider clearing out this season:
.
🌟 Comparison of any kind.
.
🌟 The need to always be right.
.
🌟 Loud opinions.
.
🌟 Close-mindedness.
.
🌟 The word ‘should.’
.

Remember, *you* get to decide who and how you want to be in the world. Shine a light on what serves and let go of what does not!
.
What would you add to the list? 🌟

I have long said that goals aren’t so much about *what you do* as about *who you become* in the process. We can view this from the reverse as well: We often know our desired outcome (ie, to write a book) and the steps (ie, lay out a format and write every day). .

What we don’t always pay attention to is *who we need to become* to achieve the goal.
.
Once you know the result you want, James Clear - author of Atomic Habits - suggests working backward to discern the type of person who could achieve that result. “For example, ‘Who is the type of person who could write a book?’ It’s probably someone who is consistent and reliable,” Clear explains. “Now your focus shifts from writing a book (outcome-based) to being the type of person who is consistent and reliable (identity-based).”
.
You could apply this mindset shift to any goal: Who is the type of person who triples their revenue? Who is the type of person who completes a graduate program while raising a family? The question can prompt new action steps, mindsets, and ways of operating as you move toward your goal.
.
This is one of three takeaway thoughts that Atomic Habits prompted for me. Check my blog (link in bio) for the other two!
.
What’s a helpful tip you’ve learned about habits? Share in the comments below! . (PS - Do you like the scenery in my photo? It’s a painting I am looking at, while outside I see a pile of snow in the midst of a thunderstorm! 🤷🏻‍♀️) .

How does this thought sit with you?
.
If you read my weekly Clarity Kickstart email yesterday, you know that this way of thinking is not necessarily my forte. I have a tendency to go all out - or stay all in. All or nothing. .

Yet anything I have ever accomplished in my life has been done one step at a time. Sometimes one incredibly small and painfully slow step at a time! But as James Clear goes on to write in Atomic Habits, “One push-up is better than not exercising. One minute of guitar practice is better than none at all. One minute of reading is better than never picking up a book.” He makes a good point. . .

What’s one teeny-tiny step you could take today to set your goal in motion? (PS - If you don’t receive my weekly Clarity Kickstarts, head to ChristiHegstad.com/#signup and join the fun!) .

I have had soooo much fun watching my son perform in show choir these past five years! The dedication, passion, and character of these high schoolers and their directors just astounds me. I am immensely grateful for the performing arts in our school - what a powerful impact on so many lives! 👏🏻 .

With a new month beginning tomorrow (!!), I thought I’d share the nonfiction books I’ve read so far in 2019. I have learned something significant from each of these books and have made a few mindset and behavior shifts as a result - always a winning sign in my view! I have highlighted them throughout the year in my Stories; be sure to join my email community (ChristiHegstad.com/#signup) as I will be sharing more of my takeaways in the near future! .

Have you read any of these yet? 📚
