In my presentation I share stories around the various challenges we faced on Mount Everest. As a team we chose to utilize Stephen Covey’s model of Circle of Concern and Circle of Influence. We categorized all the things that were impacting us and chose to focus on only those things that fell within our Circle of Influence. This gave us power and focus, allowed us to stay healthy and to be successful.
Grab two pieces of paper and make a list of the things in your influence and the things in your concern categories. Now look at where you are spending your time. Do you need to make any changes?
