Get out of your Comfort Zone: L1 Hello Points Recap

My final L1 Hello Points Academy Programme in English for 2020 has just finished.

4 participants joined online from Japan – 3 were taking the New Academy course having previously completed the old Evangelist Programme and 1 was a brand new member of the Points of You Tribe.

I shared a Facebook Live before each two hour session started. Even though we are meeting online, I enjoyed setting up my centrepiece, using flowers, light and fragrance.

Day 3 Closing!

Building Resilience in Times of Uncertainty

5 participants joined our final open Points of You® Workshop in English on December 18th. Using a Points of You® process created by Points of You® Expert, Ruth Sangale, participants reviewed four areas of their life to build their daily resilience

  1. Sleep
  2. Nutrition
  3. Social Connection
  4. Physical Wellbeing

It was great to hear that participants had taken action on their commitments after the session – Healthy food, light exercise, quality family time.

Participants dialled in from Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore. Several people were using Points of You for the first time!
Participants left energised and with an action plan
High NPS score always makes me feel like I did my job well!
Even though many people were meeting for the first time online, they were able to feel connected and supported in the virtual room. Breakout rooms allowed for more intimate sharing and listening.
The only complaint?It wasn’t long enough! A sign of an engaging topic that resonated with participants.

 “Done & Dusted December”

Why? The two Katheryn/ Catherines posted this idea simultaneously so it seemed to resonate with a lot of members

Done & Dusted is very popular in the UK to signify a task is fully completed. No loose ends, everything is tidy and the work is spotless.

  1. Get Stuff Done! – There is still time to finish projects, complete study goals, launch a service you have been planning. With fewer people travelling overseas this year, you may find more chances to connect with international customers in what used to be a “short month” for decision makers with most things needed to be signed off by about the 18th of December!
  2. Dusted – A chance also to clean up loose ends. Follow up on errant tasks, leave things in a better condition. Japan has an end of year tradition called “osouji” (大掃除 – literal “Big cleaning” but perhaps deep cleaning in the tradition of spring cleaning is more appropriate). It is a way to purify the house before the new year (as well as preparing for visitors over the New Year holidays!) So what can you deep clean in your business? Clients who only bring trouble? Processes that no longer support you? Services that don’t make sense in a COVID world? What can you let go off as we go into 2021?

Done & Dusted – do share your ideas for what you would like to achieve in the last month of 2020!

No Regrets November

Make March Matter Part VIII: #OMGOctober wraps up

This free online community was created on February 27th, 2020 as a way to support entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business owners affected by Coronavirus cancellations.

Our aim is to provide connection, accountability and inspired action. It is a community that brings smiles, cheerleaders and new ideas.

What happened in October?

  • The biggest OMG moment! Make March Matter is a nominee for the BCCJ British Business Awards 2020 Responsible Business Award. So proud of our community for grass roots practical and mental support for small business owners in this challenging year,

 “No Regrets November”

Why?

After a very active and entertaining call-in to the group for ideas, two favourites emerged for a hotly contested Hallowe’en poll.

Nurturing November got unlucky with 13 votes but I think it resonated as it focuses on kindness to ourselves and our client pipeline.

But No Regrets November won out with 16 votes. Here’s what it means to me:

  1. Just two more months of 2020 left: What are the things that you promised you would do? Can you achieve them in the next 60 days? Perhaps you can tap into the energy of the Unbreakable 90 Day Focus Challenge – which I in my full on Harry Potter fan mode call “The Unbreakable Vow”.
  2. No Regrets – say “yes” to something new, so “no” to something no serving you anymore. Make mistakes and explore the learning. Make a big ask of someone and be ok with whatever the answer is. But whatever you do don’t regret it. What is regret? My good friend etymologyonline.com tells us this
    • “to look back with distress or sorrowful longing; to grieve for on remembering,” late 14c., from Old French regreter “long after, bewail, lament someone’s death; ask the help of” (Modern French regretter), from re-, intensive prefix (see re-), + -greter, possibly from Frankish or some other Germanic source (compare Old English grætan “to weep;” Old Norse grata “to weep, groan”), from Proto-Germanic *gretan “weep.”

Make March Matter: BBA 2020 Nominee!

From inspiration in the shower the day before the schools closed in February to a thriving, free online community of over 200 small business owners, Make March Matter is a nominee in the Responsible Business Award at the British Business Awards 2020. (Still time to register for the virtual awards ceremony on November 5th!)

This community is a living embodiment of my commitment to UN SDG Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth.

“The SDGs promote sustained economic growth, higher levels of productivity and technological innovation. Encouraging entrepreneurship and job creation are key to this, as are effective measures to eradicate forced labour, slavery and human trafficking. With these targets in mind, the goal is to achieve full and productive employment, and decent work, for all women and men by 2030.”

Small businesses make up over 84% of companies in Japan and employ over 10 million people and add 3.57Trillion yen in value to the economy (Read the METI report here).

They have also been the hardest hit by the impact of Coronavirus and are the most vulnerable to restrictions.

It has been my absolute honour to support business owners as they show immense resilience, hope and entrepreneurial spirit to pivot their business and cheer on each other. Make March Matter is a way for me to integrate my Ikigai and I look forward to each encounter with excitement to see what might emerge!

Come and join us over at the Facebook group for regular accountability meetings, virtual co-working and content rich guest speakers – all free and powered by the energy and enthusiasm of our growing and diverse community.

What Martin Eden can teach us about Ikigai

Martin Eden is a 1909 novel by American author Jack London. It was recommended to me by one of my coaching clients, and many times in sessions, he would ask “Have you read Martin Eden?” and then “Have you still not read Martin Eden?”

I hadn’t and for some reason I could not access a print copy (although I just looked on amazon JP and here it is! There is some magic going on here about why I could not get a copy before!) My client said that it had really influenced him when he was younger and continued to influence him to this day. I was intrigued by what he had to say, but just couldn’t get a copy.

After almost 2 years of coaching, my client announced that the big day had finally come. He was being transferred from Tokyo to Dubai, and as a farewell gift, he promised me a copy of Martin Eden. He also tried to find a copy in print and could not. Then, in the most beautiful gesture, he gave me his beloved copy. It has traveled around the world with him. It’s so meaningful to receive a pre-loved book. Complete with a few pencilled notes, it’s a bit battered, smells wonderful, and is totally unique. I’ll admit, it must’ve been dusty in the boardroom or perhaps it was allergies? Not a dry eye in the house…

So as well as imagining my client as a young man when he read this and remembering the context of the coaching sessions when he shared incidents that were meaningful for him, I also saw many parallels about the concept of Ikigai.

Martin Eden meets a girl, that’s how so many great books start right? I need to say “spoiler alert” from now on!

When your lover is your Ikigai

He meets a girl. He sees a different type of life for himself, and he starts to educate himself. He’s a sailor, a working class boy and decides he wants to go after this middle -class girl, Ruth. So Ruth, for a while, is the object of his Ikigai, his reason for living. She is his reason for doing everything. He betters himself so that he can come her exalted world and be with her.

Through this course of education, he discovers a love for writing, for creativity and he is producing this work. He also sees a business chance to earn good money based on what he reads in magazines. But, of course, the path to success is not smooth and he receives rejection after rejection. There’s a lot of discussion around that, the challenges of creativity, the challenges of getting recognition, the soul crushing experience of repeated rejection.

But through this journey, Ruth is always very much the North Star. Eden’s reason for getting out of bed is so he can be good enough for her. He faces a lot of criticism from people around him to get a job, get a position, stop this messing around with writing. He’s often living in extreme poverty. He’s losing weight. His clothes are in the pawn shop. He’s in debt with no more creditors and Ruth is this terrible middle-class bourgeoisie girl who has no idea about his struggles. She just keeps saying “come and work for Daddy”. Whilst he believes in her and himself she has no concept of what he’s really doing with her as the object of his Ikigai.

When work turns you from man to beast

There’s a shift at one point in the story where Eden gets a job in a laundry. He’s had enough of the creative struggle and says, “I need to make money. I don’t want to go sailing again.” There is a really amazing description about the transformation that overcomes him with this work. He becomes a beast of a man. He’s so exhausted from the constant machine and the speed. He works and works and works and then they’d go out and obliterate themselves on a Saturday night, come back to work on Monday. Plus ca change, Tokyo in the 21st century.

Alcohol allows him to separate from himself. To not be part of the machine. To escape from the physically challenging, mentally challenging, exhausting work. Through this experience of this endless work where you think you’re done, and then another bag of fancy starch comes in. It’s just not sustainable. Martin quits. Joe (his boss) quits to become a hobo. Martin goes back to his writing. Reading this segment from over 100 years ago really resonated with some of the stories of my clients and how they feel about their work. When your day job takes so much out of you that you can’t even live on the weekend, something is broken. There is more to life than this. What choices are you willing to make?

When your Ikigai betrays you

Later in the book Eden’s fortunes change and he finds wealth and fame. And of course the people who shunned him now court him. And his ikigai crumbles.

He realizes how fake fame is, how fake recognition is, how nobody cared for him with the work that he had already done, how nobody invited him for dinner when he was penniless. And finally (I was screaming “YES!” internally) there’s a rejection of Ruth. He finally realizes, thank goodness that he was just in love with an image of her. It wasn’t the real woman, it was the idea of her. So his object of his ikigai proved false.

And with this loss of ikigai, Eden literally has no reason to get out of bed. He cannot see the purpose of his life. He has everything he said he wanted. He has recognition for the things that he produced. The woman he loved says, “I’ll have you now.”

But her realises it’s just empty and fake. He feels that this object of his Ikigai, his focus on why he was alive, what drove him, is ultimately meaningless. And he is so exhausted that he is not able to find a new Ikigai. All his energy and life force is gone. The focus on a single idea of a possible future meant that he could hardly draw pleasure in the present and then by the time he realised the expected outcome, he had no ikigai left.

Why you need a reason to get out of bed

It reminded me that this concept of having a reason to live is so important. And that also we need to remember the journey is the goal. When we get “there” it might not be what we imagined.

At the end of the book, Eden is tired of life. He no longer has the capacity for joy, he can’t see any hope. It’s heartbreaking and a such a waste of a talented soul.

I don’t want that for anyone in my life. I want people to wake up with a reason to do what they’re doing, to feel they are valued for who they are, to feel loved, to love, and to have the joy of creating something. That doesn’t mean painting a picture or writing a book. It means by being in the world, merely by existing, you’re making a difference to somebody’s life.

I thought that “Martin Eden” raised a lot of interesting ideas about Ikigai, about our purpose, how we choose to live, the stories that we tell.

So my invitation is to think about what drives you. What would happen if you felt that it was suddenly false? How would you handle that “betrayal” of your ideal? Would you put something else in its place? Would you carry on ahead with no different ideas? Or would you say, “Okay, done.”

How I became an Expert thanks to COVID-19

A Points of You® L3 Expert that is!

Am I not already an Expert? Returning to the source!

With new global standards, comes recertification. I had already done a lot of practice and had a Japan certification that allowed me to deliver 3 day certification programmes. I thought that I was done and could continue with delivery and designing my own workshops with Points of You and then, bam, in 2019 the Academy was launched.

And the Points of You® Academy is a good thing! Please don’t get me wrong! It’s really changed the quality of the experience for participants. It has created a way for participants around the world to have a unified experience of the methodology of Points of You®: how to use the tools, how to create workshops, and to really get a standardized version of what the brand experience is all about. There is still freedom for the facilitator to bring their personality and their own stories, but really the Academy gives everyone in the community a basic understanding at the same level. It’s great to feel connected and know that from Tokyo to Toronto we are sharing the same experience. And as a former marketer, I really see the push from a brand equity perspective!

After the Academy was launched, of course, I took the live sessions of the L1 Hello Points in Japanese. I joined the 2 day L2 Creative Practice programme in Japanese. Completed my practice sessions for that and could call myself a “Practitioner” and deliver L1 6 hour workshop. Then the requirement for the L3 level was shared and I realised that I need to do another 18 hours of practice workshops.

A Herculean task?

So it is about October 2019 and somehow I have to figure out how to do the following three times each for 6 different workshops

  • get groups of a least 6 people who would not be potential L2 Creative Practice participants
  • English speaking
  • face to face
  • during the daytime (evenings and weekends are family time)
  • in a spacious meeting room that I can get for free for at least 3 hours!

It doesn’t sound so challenging but add that I am running a business, raising a family and you know… living life!

Some of the contents I see how they can work with my clients as stand alone experiences. But for some of the other processes, it’s a little bit difficult to see how people unfamiliar with the tools can just jump in. Some of the processes are quite deep and complex, and not that entry-level friendly. It is, after all, the Level 2 program.

I had done a couple of sessions with different clients, the “My Life’s Wishlist” and “The Potential Me”. These are two fabulous workshops. I really enjoy them as a way to get people thinking about their experiences and their potential. Through sharing with a partner you get new insights. Alo lots of great internal networking if you run this in organizations.

I also delivered My Life’s Wishlist to a select group of high potentials at one of my clients. I really think this is a magical workshop. Personally, many of the things that I’ve had on My Life’s Wishlist have been achieved. I’ve heard from past participants that yes, they have had success with what they have committed to. The process of dreaming big, imagining the end state and then drilling down on what’s going to help you, what’s going to stand in your way, and then having your time “on stage” makes this process just brilliant and, as I mentioned, it has some strange magical power….

But it’s the end of 2019 and I have done 3 of the 18 workshops… going to be a loooooong road ahead.

Thanks COVID!

No, actually, really. Thanks COVID!

Fast forward into 2020. Yeah, I think you know where this story is going. Of course COVID-19 hit and face-to-face workshops weren’t really an option. Not really even a possibility from a safety perspective, an interest perspective. Just gathering people together was tough.

And it was around this timing in spring 2020, I’m very happy to say, that Points of You® headquarters in Israel did a great pivot and said, “How can we continue to develop these tools and to share the Academy programs in an online form?”

They knew that face-to-face workshops weren’t happening, but still the insights and breakthroughs that all of the L1 and L2 Academy programs allow people to have are really important, especially in the time of a pandemic, especially in crisis, as we look to develop our resilience. So HQ decided to restructure the L1 and L2 and to an online program.

And that also meant that we could do our practice of the sessions online as well!

And it really has been a “Thanks, COVID,” moment for me, because through doing the programs online, I have been able to connect two Points of You® Tribe members from around the world. It’s been amazing to have people from Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, North Macedonia, Greece, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hungary, Croatia and America. So many different countries and cultures have been represented. It really has been an unexpected joy of 2020.

And it’s been fabulous to see how well the processes, the tools, and the ideas connect all these humans together. The things that we have in common is that we all speak English and that we all have interest in Points of You® for professional or personal development.

In these practice sessions we’ve connected despite our different country backgrounds, different ages, different genders, different family situations. Each session has felt so much connection, so much love, and just a great feeling of joy and gratitude to be the person who brought these people into this space. Even though you will hear me complain many times about how buggy Facebook events are as an organiser, I was really grateful for social media in this timing as well. It allowed me to easily connect to these people all over the world.

Points of You® headquarters has created these great and active groups where we can freely share our offerings with other community members from Points of You as well. Truly the spririt of “Pay it Forward”.

What did I learn as an online facilitator?

What I learned through the process as an online facilitator is that, most importantly, you can create powerful connection in an online environment. We mostly did the workshops, or using Zoom with breakout rooms. People want to talk, they want to connect, so let them. Cameras on, mute off, get involved, speak up.

I also remembered the power of the Pause. Super important in this always online world. Many of my clients are coming straight from another meeting into a workshop. There needs to be a moment to arrive, whether it’s three mindful breaths, a head, heart, stomach, check-in, or just asking yourself: Why am I here? Who am I? How am I?

These are really important questions to check in with ourselves on a regular basis, especially in the pandemic situation when we are under constant, low level stress (or high level stress depending on your role and your current situation).

I faced a personal practical challenge during this journey: holding the space. When I am facilitating a workshop in a room, I can see what is happening. I can observe the participants’ reactions, where they are in their journey, what they’re struggling with, laughter, tears, confusion, aha moments. I can observe all of these things.

But in an online session when a lot of interactions are happening in the breakout rooms, the facilitator experience is really different. If you just virtually pops your head in to the breakout room, you really are interrupting the intimacy of that sharing, and the intimacy of that moment. It’s important that you get comfortable with holding the space in the main room whilst the breakout rooms do their thing. The phrase, “Trust the process,” comes strongly to mind.

An Expert at last!

So now I am delighted to announce that thanks to COVID, I was able to complete my 18 hours of practice at the end of September. I was able to connect with a really wonderful group of Points of You® members from around the world.

I look forward to the opportunity to deliver more work online, and to allow people to get over the fact that online connection is not worse than face-to-face connection. You need to bring openness, a willingness to be vulnerable, a desire to connect in that space. So turn your camera on and start sharing!

Drumroll please……….:

….

 “OMG October”

Why?

I was on my run this morning and said “OMG I haven’t planned the theme for next month! The flower will definitely be higanbana (spiderlilies) the harbinger of autumn and cool crisp weather. I’ll save the Japanese maple for November. Right so what are some adjectives that begin with O?” And my mind went blank.

And OMG just felt right so here we go:

  1. OMG Q4 already! 2020 has been marked by a mysterious passing of time where days blend into each other and especially in late Q1, early Q2 I hardly knew what day of the week it was. But here we are Q4 – the last 90 days. We have a great challenge going on in the group called the Unbreakable 90 Day Focus Challenge – which I in my full on Harry Potter fan mode call “The Unbreakable Vow”. It was launched on September 26 and runs until Christmas Eve – but just join in from now and add a few days on at the end. Thanks to Catherine O’Connell at Catherine O’Connell Law for starting the challenge and creating the daily prompts. Also thanks to Kristen Quillan at Drawing Meditations who made a great google file where almost 10 members are tracking their progress. It’s really inspiring to see all the ways that people are tackling the challenge and what their business priorities are.
  2. OMG October! How can you inspire a (positive) OMG reaction in your clients this month? How can you get them to say “OMG, thank you! That is amazing!” “OMG, you solved my problem so quickly!” “OMG I need to refer you to all my network, you are fabulous!” ?
  3. OMG October… my mind is still blank of inspiring”O” adjectives and I like the alliteration and the rhythm. Sometimes, simple is best.
