Greg Kirk on Successful Habits Posted on 25 Mar 22:12 , 0 comments

Late last year I asked Greg Kirk to tell us about his experience of implementing the habits and strategies from Pac Executive Coaching's Productivity Program in his personal and professional life. 

Greg wears many hats in his life including husband, father, manager, business owner, entrepreneur, horse breeder and board member.

I was inspired by the way he and his wife, and fellow powerhouse, Emma manage their personal, professional, couple and team habits.

Greg's top tips:

1. Manage your work-life balance via your calendar: Run a shared calendar with your family to ensure business and personal interests are all blocked out and communicated. 

Block out important work and priorities in your calendar and stick to it. 

2. Manage Your Energy for Optimal Productivity. Your personal and professional success depends upon your ability to put your health first.

Don't be a martyr! Make the decision to look after your health and you will also be looking after your productivity.

We recommend at least 150 minutes of exercise per week for optimal productivity.

3. Challenge Yourself.  Greg believes that when you manage your career you need to be able to feel safe and capable in an ambiguous world,

"Master vulnerability. [It] will help you master uncertainty in the future."

4. Do what you say you're going to do. If there's a reason why you can't follow through because of certain compromises, have the courage to talk to your manager. 

 "Allow the leader into the situation to help you solve those compromises." 

Put aside time for follow ups after every meeting. Take time to plan to ensure all of your commitments are kept. Communicate with your managers and stakeholders pro-actively. 

We work with individuals and teams to help them change habits which lead to greater productivity and happiness at home and work.

Keep moving forward,
