No Ego: Cy Wakeman on Eliminating “Emotional Waste” – Love Your Work, Episode 119

Cy Wakeman (@cywakeman) is the founder of Reality Based Leadership. She wrote a book called No Ego. Want to 4x your creative output? Click here for my free toolkit » No Ego is a leadership book, which is an unusual read for me since I’m a solopreneur, but I couldn’t put it down. You might hear me talk about ego from time to time. I think my conversation with Ryan Holiday back on episode 31 was the first time I was really thinking about ego. He wrote the book Ego is the Enemy. Since then I’ve come to realize that ego is the number one enemy that can hold you back from reaching your creative potential. Your ego will keep you from being accountable to yourself and what you want to accomplish. It will direct your attention outside of you, and cause you to blame others. It will cause you to make limiting excuses for yourself. But if you’re able to bypass your own ego, something magical happens. You start to concentrate on what you can control. You start to see a connection between your actions and the results you get. This is what I loved so much about Cy’s book, No Ego. It’s a powerful book for keeping ego from ruining your workplace, but at the same time it’s a powerful book for keeping ego from ruining yourself and sabotaging your own potential.

This is the second of our casts that describe our recommendations about calendar management.
Last week, we covered some basics of calendar management, the most important of which was that effective managers think about managing their priorities a WEEK at a time - thinking in terms of weeks is the most effective way to stay strategic, and therefore effective.
We then covered our first, and perhaps most surprising point - Family First.
Simple in practice … schedule time for your family ON YOUR CALENDAR first.
And then give THAT commitment the same level of focus as your other priorities.
This week, we cover our remaining points relative to managing your calendar …
