Have you come across the “Hour of Power” approach before?

If so, what do you do? Please share in the comments below.

To help you to achieve one of the #TLH stated objectives – “to help change and transformation professionals stand out from the crowd” – I suggest that the “Hour of Power” approach could be the way forward.

Let me explain what I mean.

The ‘Hour of Power” philosophy is very simple, in reality. It’s a dedicated time-slot (it doesn’t have to be one hour) where you operate at your optimum. If you’re a morning person, it may be first thing before the rest of the household gets up. Alternatively, it may be later in the day or during the evening.

Whenever it is for you, all you’ve got to do is block out time within your diary to do something that will help you become more successful/ achieve more.

To help you to stand out and position yourself in the best possible way, I suggest that you utilise at least three of these daily time slots (throughout the week) to focus on developing materials that highlight your experience or skills, focusing as ever on the value that you can deliver.

This approach will ensure that you overcome the issue that I hear all the time – “I simply don’t have the time to do….”

If you are serious about developing your change and transformation career, the more that you can demonstrate the value that you deliver, the more opportunities will open up for you.

Use your time wisely by following the approaches outlined across the #TLH Platform, especially the #TLH Essentials programme.

During the other days, use your “Hour of Power” to undertake exercise, listen to your favourite podcasts, meditate, read or simply give yourself time for reflection.

The real purpose of the “Hour of Power” is that you schedule time in your diary for YOU.

Do not allow anybody to interfere with your “Hour of Power”.

Remember, it’s a meeting with the most important person in your life – YOU!

Look after yourself and you’re in the best possible place to help others.

      I do this every morning for 1 to 1 and a half hours before I start work and my family gets up. The night before I write out a I list out 1 to 2 things that I want to complete during this time that are realistic to achieve. I’ve been doing this for just over a month now and have found that it makes a huge difference in making progress in the areas that I wouldn’t usually get time to focus on.

        I agree, Adam, developing your list the night before is a proven productivity hack – thanks for sharing
