Elizabeth Ross Holmstrom - Focus, Flow, & Fun

tips from podcast guests Jan 28, 2022

Insight and inspiration for flying higher in the difference only you can make from guests who have appeared on Creative on Purpose Live.

This week's wisdom comes from a conversation with Elizabeth Ross Holmstrom, founder of Mindful Employer. Tune into the entire conversation here.

[ELIZABETH] "Try to give yourself some quiet space to really feel what it's like to be where you are right now. What are the things that in your day-to-day work, or being, bring you joy? Right? Like, where do you lose your sense of time?"

"And then, think about, or ask, you know, kind of just ask your inner wisdom, like, 'Where can I do more of that?' Like, how can I do less of what... Like, the shadow side of that is like, 'What am I doing that just actually sucks the energy out of me and isn't really adding a lot?'"

"So, I feel like that's a really good place to begin, is to just go into yourself and begin to notice where you're activated in a really positive way. And then what's, like, I always think of it as like 'energy in' and 'energy out.' What is purely taking my energy out versus what's actually, you know, maybe I'm putting energy out but there's also energy coming back in."

[SCOTT] "That is phenomenal. I love that. What I was hearing is 'Find your focus and find your flow and maybe have a little fun at the same time.'"

[ELIZABETH] "Yeah, we all need more fun."

[SCOTT] "Amen!"

Elizabeth delivered a powerful call to cultivate presence and mindfulness into your day by finding your focus, get into flow, and having more fun. How might checking your zest barometer help you beat burnout and find joy in the difference only you can make today?
