Guess What Justin Timberlake and You Have in Common?

photo (6)Justin Timberlake came to Montreal! JT is a brilliant performer; he can sing, dance, has an incredible stage presence, and is funny and genuine.

If you are thinking the photo was taken a long way away from the stage, you are right. It was! 15 months ago, tickets went on sale at 10:00 am, and at 10:06, those were the best seats I could get. Crazy (in a good way), right?

Justin Timberlake has a huge fan base; the noise at the concert was insane, not from the music but from the cheering crowd. Everyone was very happy to be there. Imagine having the power to make that many people happy by doing something you love to do.

Did you also know that JT has ADHD?

JT, like other successful people with ADHD, uses it to his advantage (it takes a lot of energy to perform 2 hours and 30 minutes). He focuses on what he is good at and what he enjoys doing.

When you have your own business, you are in the best position to focus on what you are good at. In fact that is probably why you started your business in the first place . . . to focus on a skill or talent you enjoy.

However, after a while of being in business, it’s easy to let ‘not-so-good-stuff’ creep into your day. You might agree to work with a client on something outside of what you are good at. Or you do your own booking because you don’t want the expense of hiring someone. Or you forget that you can make your own rules and do things you feel you are ‘supposed’ to but don’t really have to.

When you are spending time away from what you are naturally good at, your ADHD seems to be more problematic, life becomes stressful, and less fun.

But when you focus on what you are good at, you have lots of happy clients, you have more confidence, and your business becomes more profitable.

This week give your life and business and reboot.

1) Write down what you are naturally good at.
2) Identify which of those things you enjoy doing. (Just because you are good at something doesn’t mean you like it. I know lots of people with ADHD who are great at sales but hate it!)
3) Work out how to spend more time doing them.
4) Be open to delegating tasks that aren’t on your list
5) Notice how much easier and fun life is!
