Do You Have Grit?

Do you have grit?No matter where you live in the world this one fact is indisputable. The end of January is right upon us all next week.

Is this fact shocking to you? Are you asking yourself – where did this month go?

If you made some New Year’s Resolutions – how are they going? There is a saying: how you do anything is how you do everything. 

My guess is how you handled your January, how you handled your New Year’s Resolutions is how you are going to handle each month for the rest of this year and every goal setting or promise you make to yourself as you move forward.

What will it take for this not to be true? GRIT. That is right: GRIT.

Grit means to me how you describe a person who has the resolve, the determination, the strength of character to move through anything to get where they want to go or to achieve something difficult. This is what it takes to move through a list of goals toward one or more objectives.

Now this means the goals still have to be stated in the proper S.M.A.R.T. way. The progress or not toward meeting the goals must still be tracked. It still means the goals must actually be meaningful toward meeting one or more objectives (think – what is my Why?).

Grit means seeking out people who will hold you accountable and meeting or at least communicating with them regularly in a scheduled format. This is to hold you accountable – the missing ingredient for the majority of people who fail to achieve anything through their haphazard resolution or goal setting process.

The question remains for you to answer – Do You Have Grit?

Let’s see if you will get going now and get started –

  1. Write out your top three objectives you want to achieve this year for your personal life (3) and in your business or career (3).
  1. What exactly will you do starting next week toward achieving these?
  1. List out five people you will share this information with.
  1. Ask a person to be your accountability partner. A person who will agree to hold you accountable by meeting with you or communicating with you on a regularly scheduled basis.

Now show your grit. Follow these steps and you will be ready to grit it out this year.

If you are one of those scoffing at this process it is okay. I still love you. You just have no grit!

Are You Ready For Your Inauguration?

Are You Ready For Your Inauguration?in·au·gu·ra·tion
iˌnôɡ(y)əˈrāSH(ə)n/
noun
noun: inauguration; plural noun: inaugurations
Defined:   the beginning or introduction of a system, policy, or period.

For Example –  

    • a ceremony to mark the beginning of something.

Are you ready to announce and declare your Inauguration?

You are part of a company or large organization – Declare no more unnecessary meetings! Have an inaugural event and make this stick. Define what is a necessary meeting, how it should be structured and how many people must attend. Most importantly how will the follow up and accountability for action steps determined be handled?

You have your own business – Declare you will manage your time better by tracking what you do each day and reviewing at the end of each week where you wasted time and where you optimized your time. Make it your business to spend more time on income producing items and less time on anything else. Announce your intentions with an Inaugural Event! Even if this is only through email. It will serve notice that nonessential emails may not be responded to immediately any longer.

You are in career transition (meaning – you have been let go, you are considering leaving your position, you are able to read the tea leaves and know you will be let go OR you have been out of work for a while) – Declare you are going to be open to feedback and you are going to seek it out. Declare you are going to recognize you are now in marketing and sales – the product is YOU! Declare you will create a strategy and a plan and have accountability set up to hold you to it. Announce your intentions and let people in your network know what you are doing (be careful here if you are still employed while seeking a position elsewhere).

The point is to take action! Kick off with your Inaugural Event and celebrate and announce what you will be doing. There is no excuse. Part of a company or a large organization, in your own business, or another situation… it makes no difference. Only you, yes you, are in charge of taking action.

Use the comments area and make a statement right now what action will you be taking.

Not ready to go public? Fine. Write it out now and then follow up and make it happen.

Watch your email for an invitation to a no cost call on goal setting coming up soon!

Can’t wait any longer and you are ready to take action? Contact Mitch Now!
