What Would it Take to Triple Your Results

Monday, September 3rd, 2018




I’ve got a question for you: What would it be like to triple your results within 90 days?

Think about that. No, really think about that.

What if you could triple your results in 90 days?

And here’s the better question: How could you do that?

You see, when we hear a thought like that, immediately, we think “That’s not doable.” “That’s unrealistic.”

Well, if you think that way, guess what? You’re right!

If instead, stay in the questionable:

“What would I need to do?”

“What kind of disciplines would I need to have?”

“What would I need to learn?”

“How would I focus my time?”

“How would I stay attentive to the few most important things?”

“What would I get rid of?”

By thinking truly about HOW you make it happen, you might make it happen.

What’s possible for you if you truly DID triple your results in 90 days? I don’t know what it would be—but I promise it would be good!

Decide to Have Fun Every Day

Monday, August 27th, 2018




Work is not something you think about as being fun. Let’s face it: If it were a hysterical amount of fun every day, you’d probably be paying an admission fee, calling it Disney, and wearing little mouse ears on your head.

So, work is still work. But you can MAKE it fun. Winning is fun. Making an impact on customers is fun. Developing relationships with team members is fun. But those things don’t just happen, you have to make it happen!

If you’re not the kind of person that sets the intention to create fun in your workplace, I promise you, you’re not having any fun. You’ll see it sometimes with your peers. When they don’t like one job, they move on to the next one. Then they don’t like that job, and they move to the next one.

They always seem to have the same reason they move from job to job. Again, it goes back to Carl Jung’s projection: We don’t like in others what we don’t like within ourselves.

If you decide to make work great and you put your heart all in, I promise you that you will love what you do every day.

Take Responsibility for Your Relationships

Monday, August 20th, 2018




Your relationship with your supervisor is one of the most important relationships you have. They can coach you to be better at what you do. They can find opportunities. They can suggest additional training for you. They usually are really looking out for you!

What’s typical and accepted in the workplace is for us to say negative things about the supervisor—often because they are challenging you to have better performance! But know that they are challenging you to have better performance because they care about you! Obviously they care about the performance as well, but if they didn’t care about you, they wouldn’t say anything. They would just start preparing for your exit.

So, know that they’re a stand for you. So, take good care of that relationship. Be appreciative of the feedback. Implement the feedback. Ask for more feedback. And have a kindness of spirit as you address the differences of opinion about how you will make things happen.

Align Your Daily Priorities to Your Monthly Outcomes

Monday, August 13th, 2018




I don’t know about you, but I’m an “Oh look! A shiny thing!” “Oh look! A squirrel!” kind of person. I can get distracted VERY easily, but when I’m distracted, I’m not functioning at a high level. I understand that, in order to control myself, I need to align my daily activities to my monthly plan.

In other words, every month, I make a list of the most important things that I intend to accomplish for the month. It doesn’t mean I’m not going to do a hundred or five hundred additional things. It just means that on that list, I will make sure those things happen! AND that I’ve been thoughtful about the most important things. And every day, I look back at my monthly plan and I align to that plan.

So, take responsibility to align yourself daily to what MOST matters for the month and the quarter, and make sure that YOU are aligned to optimize your performance every day.

Demonstrate Commitment

If you look at the national research that Gallup does every year on disengaged employees, you’ll note that most people are disengaged from the workplace. Over 70 percent really are not committed to their organization and are not committed to great results.

Well, you have to ask yourself, “Why is that?” Is it because the employers are wrong? Or is it because the team members aren’t saying, “How do I make this great?” “How do I step in?” “How do I add value?”

You see, sometimes you can create in your life a commitment where, wherever you are, you love it! Everything you do is the best thing ever! Why? Because you are stepping all in!

You see, there are some people who kind of dabble. They have their toes kind of in the pool a little bit and there are some people that go right in the pool.

Are you on the playing field or are you watching the game?

Demonstrate commitment of what you do, and when your supervisors and your team members and your clientele sees the impact of you, you have an unstoppable future!
