Show Notes:

  • Her biggest habits are hard work, persistence, patience, and embracing failure.
    • We all fail. It’s important to learn from our failures so we don’t repeat them again.
  • Two challenges with leading virtual teams are:
    • Keeping people engaged.
      • How can we build trust when we can’t see each other?
    • Synching people from different time zones and creating teams that supersede cultural barriers.
  • She wanted to give people encouragement and support with her book.
  • People don’t achieve goals because they often don’t have all their ideas clear in their minds.
  • Evi was surprised to find that many people think they’re successful partly due to luck.
  • She also didn’t realize that many people don’t consider being healthy as a measure of success.
  • Success doesn’t always lead to happiness.
    • It can lead to momentary happiness.
  • What makes you happy?
    • What makes you happy may not be what makes others happy.
  • Once you decide that you need a coach you have to look around and find which coach will fit you best.
  • To get started:
    • Take the time you need to write down what doesn’t make you happy.
    • Create an action plan.
    • Set SMART goals and break them down into little goals that you can manage more easily.
    • Go for it!
