It’s not that I didn’t see January coming, I do have a calendar, I try to keep my eyes on the path, although the festive distractions somehow find me ‘contending’ with those best-laid plans.
Like most I have a routine, I try to stick to what works, to what helps me excel, to do a better job. This year though I have resolved to losing some of the ‘stuff’ that has not worked.
There is plenty to lose as well… such as the deliberation.
Do I listen to that best advice from my own self?
‘Stick to the plan, keep the goal in mind and you shall achieve.’
Honestly? Well, most times I do listen to me although I tend to deliberate a little …
2019 for me is starting with fewer distractions, losing the time thieves and putting into practice more decisive direction.
How about you? I’ve heard similar from closest colleagues these past few months about there being ‘not enough hours in the day’ or ‘understanding who to trust’ or the old gem … ‘I’m concentrating on core business, I’ve no time.’
No time to deliver a better you?
Making time is surprisingly easy when we’re more decisive.
Trust? This starts with natural attraction of like minds and the risk acceptance. Each of us is aware of how to find more time so just now we won’t dwell (deliberate) … Steve Shapiro can help us there. Allocating time for the more important stuff, that which matters to you, with action(s) you can do now for your clients and for your own business is simple. (Even I can do it!)
It’s about losing the deliberation. You know, we ‘chew the fat’ put the plan on the shelf, we listen to the social opinion (yikes!) and before we know it, we’ve found more cons than those original pros we had in mind for going forward. Deliberation.
Let’s be decisive folks, go forth in your offer, follow up with your instincts, welcome change, show your real self (people buy from people) and look after all that faith you have invested in you and stand in wonder as he (or she) returns to support you.
It’s often said:
‘more business is lost through indecision than by making the wrong decision.’
What say you?
Just don’t take too long thinking about it.
