Our guest this week is Laura Maness, CEO Havas New York. Havas — beyond being a creative powerhouse, since Laura took the helm has also been recognized as one of the best places to work by Ad Age.
This episode is a masterclass on intentionality as Laura reveals her secret weapon to own her day and chase freedom. Listen to the full episode to hear how Laura transformed the agency out of the Mad Man era and into the Wholeheartedness era.
Here are three takeaways from our conversation:
- Reframe Balance. Laura rejects the concept of work and life as separate entities that need to be “balanced”, and focuses her energy on being present. Instead of spending her time and energy on the endless quest for harmony, she has reframed her mindset around balance to be about choosing to be all in and present in the moment.
- Find Your Fuel. The antidote to exhaustion is not resting or sleeping more, it’s living a wholehearted life. When your heart and mind are aligned, it creates an endless source of energy.
- Rituals Matter. Laura structures the first hour of her day to be her power hour. She uses it intentionally to focus her mind, body and soul.
This week’s Mojo Move is to Own Your Day.
Owning your day requires you to step back and reflect on what gets your time and attention. For Laura this involves being a loyal member of the 5am club and conducting an audit of her interior empires. I can’t wait for you to hear about the routine she swears by. Listen to the full episode (https://pod.link/1522916112) to get all the details and learn more about this week’s Mojo Move.
Mojo Mondays Bootcamp is here to show you what’s possible in your life. I hope these notes and my weekly Mojo Move at the end of the interview help you find and activate your Mojo!
