Want to send your productivity and effectiveness through the roof? It starts with a powerful mental exercise.
Imagine for a second that your fairy godmother comes along, and “poof” you’re now the CEO of your company AND you are featured as running the #1 company in your industry, AND you’re doing it without breaking a sweat.
Let me ask you: Would you be operating on the same habits, decision-making skills, and thinking as you have now? Of course not.
Well, what if today, you made every decision, managed your calendar, and thought and performed AS IF you were at that level? Would that change your performance on the duties you currently are in charge of? Of course you would!
AND would it make you infinitely more promotable and allow you to get more done with less time and effort—and focus on what really matters? There’s no question!
Imagine your success if you grew by 10 to 25 percent every quarter in your ability to do your job and the job of the person you report into. Think of how much more effective and promotable you would be. The way to get there is to let go of the “story” about why you’re too busy to sharpen your skillset. Start sharpening it every day without exception.
