Jan 18, 2019

For many, this is the end of week three for a new set of inspired goals!   Sometimes, it is around this point, that the excitement begins to wear off a bit.  It’s similar to having purchased that new car and then paying the first note.  New undertakings such as walking into the gym at 5 AM don’t feel quite as inspired as they did during the first week. Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment. ― Thomas Carlyle

Jan 17, 2019

Step-by-step we move forward towards better fitness, meal-by-meal towards better health and task-by-task an initiative is completed. Count each step, meal and task completed as an accomplishment on the way towards your goal. A schedule defends from chaos and whim. – Annie Dillard

Passion/Purpose > SMART Goals > Prioritized and Calendarized work = Success. Taking first things first often reduces the most complex human problem to a manageable proportion. - Dwight D. Eisenhower

Jan 15, 2019

Simply stated, “consistency beats commitment.” There have been various forms of research done on this, but on average, a new behavior becomes automatic after 2 months.  That said, it is less about the volume of things you do to achieve your goals and more about choosing a few right things and doing them consistently.  Consider one or two things that matter most to achieving your goals.  One or two things that you will do consistently until it becomes automatic. Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way. – Booker T. Washington

Jan 14, 2019

Many people may occupy the same role that you do, have the same title that you do or run a company similar to yours. However, you always have the opportunity to perform and differentiate yourself.

Jan 11, 2019

Perfection is not when there is no more to add, but no more to take away. – Antoine De Saint-Exupery . Whether you subscribe to the 80/20 rule, minimalism or some other form of prioritization. Priorities in work and life can make the difference. Write your goals in alignment with your passion, purpose, and dreams. Create your expense budget, prudently, expecting an increase from your diligent work and faithfulness. Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, ‘I’m possible!' — Audrey Hepburn

Jan 10, 2019

We often start with our passion, purpose and dreams. Then we translate that into a clear vision. However, from there, things can begin to get a bit tricky as there is a tendency to rationalize “what is possible?” Write your goals in alignment with your passion, purpose, and dreams. Create your expense budget, prudently, expecting an increase from your diligent work and faithfulness. It doesn't matter whether you are pursuing success in business, sports, the arts, or life in general: The bridge between wishing and accomplishing is discipline. - Harvey Mackay

Jan 8, 2019

Strive for beyond what you believe is possible for yourself. It is far too easy for us to expect far less than what we are capable of. Aim higher and expect more. If you have many irons in the Fire, some will burn. - Thomas Fuller

Jan 7, 2019

Diversify your opportunities.  This is not to be confused with a lack of focus and random acts.  Acquiring skills that allow you to perform and succeed in multiple areas is of value.  It adds paint to your “career collage,” (a concept I discuss in-depth in promise #4, https://thecorelinksolution.com/igniteyourcareer/). Your goal should be just out of reach, but not out of sight. - Denis Waitley and Remi Witt

“I bargained with Life for a penny, And Life would pay no more, However I begged at evening When I counted my scanty store; For Life is just an employer, He gives you what you ask, But once you have set the wages, Why, you must bear the task.

Your year, your quarter and even your week are not done with yet. Stay committed to your goals and follow through. You will be glad you did!

How do you continue to sharpen your saw, learn new things and gain more perspective?

Nov 7, 2018

We often tend to rise to high expectations placed upon us by others. Four very powerful words can ignite so much energy … “I Believe in You.” I have seen those words spoken to someone by a person they respect (e.g. a teacher, a leader, a mentor, etc.) and sometimes sparks just fly. Say them to yourself, often … while driving, looking in the mirror, getting dressed … whenever and wherever. “I Believe in You!” Then, raise your expectations of yourself and go get it!

A significant consideration for all of us is in how we invest in relationships.  I would go a step further to say it is doubly important for those who lead teams.  Having the privilege of managing teams for more than twenty years I appreciate that the challenges faced together on a daily basis can serve to build relationships.  However, I have found that the time you plan away from the work, in shared activities that you enjoy together, truly creates more depth in those relationships … and that matters.
