LIFE Conversations with Kit — High Performance with co-host Alex Neil

High performance is living your life to your best abilities and working on upping your game regularly.

We discussed the six pillars of high performance. They are Clarity, Energy, Courage, Productivity, Influence, and Necessity.

  • Clarity involves knowing your why and defining your north star.
  • Energy is not only your physical energy but also your mental, emotional, and spiritual energy.
  • Courage includes doing the hard thing, overcoming blocks in life, and taking right action.
  • Productivity is reaching goals, accomplishing projects, and doing what you committed to doing — it’s so much more than just staying busy it.
  • Influence is almost like an act of service, not manipulation, and communicated through negotiations and with integrity.
  • Necessity maintained when you connect your emotion and your why to the goal, and it gives you the discipline to carry on.

LIFE Conversations with Kit — Mindset with co-host Alex Neil

Mindset is a huge contributor to what you make of your life.

We covered Fixed/Closed/Finite mindsets and contrasted them with Growth/Open/Infinite mindsets. Our conversation was based on our reading of the top book on mindset by Carol Dweck — Mindset, research, Simon Sinek — The Infinite Game, and our own personal stories from our experiences in life. Kit also mentioned Unreasonable Hospitality, Will Guidara as an interesting book on leadership in the restaurant industry, concepts that apply to every business; the concepts use mindset.

LIFE Conversations with Kit — Imposter Syndrome with co-host Alex Neil

Do you feel like an imposter?

We talked about:

  • the difference between feeling and looking like an imposter
  • it can be a time for growth
  • it comes with the discomfort of discovery and the uncertainty of newness
  • it can be an expression of humility or arrogance/superiority
  • feeling like an imposter comes from realizing you are doing and learning new things
  • it happens when you set hard or impossible goals
  • whether you are an Imposter or Explorer in your life

LIFE Conversations with Kit & Alex — Knowing and Standing/Living In Your Truth with co-host Alex Niel

What it takes to Know Your Truth and Stand/Live In That Truth.

We talked about:

  • How do you learn what your truths are
  • How values and truths are similar, and aligned
  • Using self-awareness and self-reflection to find and stand in your truths
  • The necessity of exploring your beliefs, pruning away the outdated truths
  • Bridging your Knowing to your Action with mindfulness
  • How authenticity and boundaries fit into living your truth
  • Implementing self-compassion, self-kindness, and patience in your path

LIFE Conversations with Kit — Finding Fulfillment with co-host Alex Niel

Finding Fulfillment is a basic tenant in a happy, healthy life.

We talked about:

  • what makes you feel fulfilled
  • whether fulfillment requires improving the world
  • how being in alignment with your values and mission contributes to your fulfillment
  • what gets in the way of fulfillment
  • how your responsibilities and obligations interact with fulfillment — or not
  • how the lack of fulfillment provides areas for growth
  • longevity relates to fulfillment because when you feel fulfilled you take better care of yourself, you make better life choices

LIFE Conversations with Kit — Live Your Dash with co-host Alex Niel

Live Your Dash is the concept of being actively engaged and vibrantly involved with your life — or not — that time between birth and death.

We talked about:

  • directing your life
  • freedom and independence
  • being true to yourself
  • living a life of obligation
  • pursuing your dreams
  • filling your life with whatever you want to fill it with
  • being present — living TODAY by leaving your baggage at the door and living for your future self today
  • having no regrets
  • pursuing your passions
  • living in harmony with people but not at the detriment of your own happiness (avoid people pleasing)

Are you living with gusto or living a safe life of no challenge or adventure? We concluded that living a safe life is not “living you dash”. Are you living the life you dream of or what others dream of for you?

LIFE Conversations with Kit — Cycles of Life with co-host Edith Johnston

Cycles of Life are the natural progressions and changes that happen in life — in all aspects of life.

We talked about:

  • our cycle from infancy to adolescence to middlescence to elderescence
  • bringing gratitude and forgiveness into our cycles
  • celebrating progress and growth, acknowledging the cycles, and finding joy in what we do
  • creating balance in your life as you cycle through your life
  • pacing yourself

Life is full of circles and motion. Making the most of that pattern and movement is fun and fascinating — when you recognize it what it is and then creating the life you want while using those cycles to your benefit.

LIFE Conversations with Kit — Fail To Succeed with co-host Edith Johnston

Failure isn’t an ending, it’s a beginning — if your mindset is set that way. The “failures”, or mistakes, we have can be our best teachers. That’s part of the fuel to move us forward.

We talked about:

  • being the captain of your own ship, taking care to not be the captain of your Titanic
  • mastery vs perfection
  • success is a journey, not a destination
  • our lives are finite and our life in infinite
  • your language is shaped by your experiences and in turn shapes the game you play
  • fixed/finite vs infinite games and open vs closed mindsets
  • being engaged in life

This conversation is a lovely example of my Italian Cammino.

LIFE Conversations with Kit — The Challenge Excites Me with co-hosts Edith Johnston and Alex Niel

Having an anchor, mantra, or thought to help you be grounded when challenge presents itself is what inspired me to have this topic for Conversations. The Conversation ranged far and wide through the concept of challenge, problem, opportunity.

Challenges have an emotional component first then move into thoughts. Your mindset and curiosity guide — or even dictate — where you take your challenge.

What an invigorating, hour-long Conversation.

LIFE Conversations with Kit & Alex — Are You Having Fun Yet? with co-host Alex Niel

The question “Are you having fun yet?” usually comes while you are working on a project that’s probably being seen as drudgery or worse. Can you turn that around and live your life with the idea of incorporating fun into all parts of your life all of the time?

Do you allow yourself to have fun at least weekly? How do you define fun? Can you integrate fun into your work culture and day? What do you do that is fun?

These are questions we asked and played with in our hour conversation.

Conversations: Escape Your Humdrum Life and Move Into Your Dreams — MINDSET with co-host, Don Downs

Which is your choice? That’s the Conversation we had in this call.
