Couldn’t agree more with the post of Lisa Evans. At Herculean we take our work outdoors all the time. Try it, it helps. Here’s an extract of her post:
Do you feel stifled by the four walls of your office or cubicle?
There’s a reason for that.
Trapping ourselves indoors has created what health experts call a “nature deficit disorder” — depression or anxiety resulting from too little time spend outside. Getting outdoors can do great things for your health. Reducing stress, lowering blood pressure and improving immune function are among nature’s health benefits. What’s more, incorporating elements of nature into your workday can also give your brain a boost, resulting in increased productivity, focus and creativity.

From a business perspective, 2013 was probably one of the toughest years ever for me personaly. I’m not going to elaborate on all the hurdles we took, but we did it and we came out even stronger! I thank the best team in the world and the Herculean fans for supporting me in reaching our goals.
I was pessimistic for 2013 – I’m optimistic for 2014. Our theme for this year: AMBITION!
We are all set for a massive year. The global dream is becoming a reality, the team is ready and focussed and our network of fans is increasing by the minute.
* I hope Belgium, Dubai and New York are set for fabulous editions
* I hope Hercules Trophy can start in one new region – why not Australia or the Baltics or Hong Kong?
* I hope Corporate Wellbeing will become a hot topic in the boardrooms and I’m convinced that the Hercules Academy comes with an offering that is unseen in the market.
* I hope we’ll have a great inspirational mission to Dubai with Belgian Executives
Remember: STOP BEING BORING….WE ARE MADE TO BE AWESOME…SO GET TO IT!
Many people struggle with it. Especially entrepreneurs in Europe, where it’s “not done” to fail and where the underdog always gets the sympathy. Or perfectionists. The problem with fear to fail or insecurity is that it can kill you. If you are afraid of failure, you don’t take risks and nothing will happen. Here’s a great article from James Caan about his lessons learned.
How I look at failure? First of all, I know I fail constantly. When failure is happening: attack the problem, don’t run away because it will get worse the longer you wait. Look it in the eyes. Pretty scary I know, but next time it happens you won’t be. Try to fix it on the spot as much as you can to really understand the source of the problem and not the result. Once you did the quick fix: Don’t change the dream, change the plan! And most importantly: I DON’T CARE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK!
Here’s a good one I borrowed from Dave Crane:
