In this episode, Kent Julian explains how the equation E + R = O changed the trajectory of his life. Kent shares how he started as an at-risk kid with SAT scores so low he had to take Development Studies just to get into college — on probation. From there, he went on to lead a national youth organization that helped teenagers just like him. After 20 years in non-profit work, he did something crazy…he launched a lifestyle business. Now he speak, write, and consult leaders all over the world.
What you can do TODAY to accomplish your goals:
- Write your goals down.
- Review your goals regularly.
- Live your life from quiet to make sure your goals don’t become “shelf help” instead of self-help.
Hot Seat Scenario:
Kent chose to swap places with Person A who spends 2-3 hours a day unwinding by watching tv or surfing online. Kent suggested that Person A cut out anything that wasn’t essential and spend that 2-3 hours a day working on his passion. Kent also pointed out how quickly just 15 hours a week adds up.
Wristbands: E + R = O
Motivational Quote or Mantra:
- E + R = O. The Events (which you do not control) plus your Response (which you control 100%) equals the Outcome.
