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!

Would You Like To Have More Time?

Why don’t our goals or resolutions get accomplished? Many of my initial client conversations on this topic begin with –“No time! I really do not have any time for it!”

Really? Would you like to have more time?

Would you like to have more time?Think about how many demands there are on your time. We are all so really, so very busy people aren’t we? In fact, take a moment and either on your device or a good old pad of paper take note of the ten things pulling at your time right now. Quickly, just ten things – write them out.

How do you determine which items to address immediately and which are the ones that can wait until later? 

For many of us responding to a text or an email is a priority, Why is that? Seriously how did that happen?  What we are doing is allowing a demand on our time to jump our determined line of importance because a message has been delivered electronically!

Many of us will determine to address items in an order based upon the topic.

  1. A family emergency – this would take priority over most other items for many  people. An emergency is not that your nine year old daughter left her lunch on the school bus.  If you have an assistant hopefully they handled how she might buy lunch that day at school and you don’t even know about it at all until later.
  2. If you are in charge of a group of people, their leader, any time one of them has an important item to discuss with you or a situation where they may need your guidance or input, hopefully you have set up a way for their issue or concern to move right up to the top of your list. By responding with questions they will need to answer and essentially solve their problems themselves, over time, you will be contacted less and less often.
  3. Your role may be to bring in new business, or to handle any current client engagements, or you may be in charge of a project. Each day you should have regularly scheduled calls or meetings. However, if there is an issue you will want to deal with it as soon as possible and this must move up on your list.
  4. Maybe you are the business owner. A service based business or a retail business. Your number one priority has to be spending most of you time engaged in income producing activities. Period. There is no discussion. “Well, Mitch, you just don’t understand – my market – my business – my situation..…” 

Use the contact form here and tell your story. Let’s see it. 

At this point you get the idea, how do you set your own priorities for what you do first with your precious time? Now for anyone who is convinced they have zero time to work on or to devote to any new or bigger goals – here is your assignment.

For two weeks from the time you wake up in the morning until you go to bed each night, write down in a few words exactly what you did for the last twenty minutes. Period. Each and everyday for the next two weeks. For every single twenty minutes all day long. Bring this reporting with you to the table and review it with either a close, friend, your partner, spouse or executive coach and ask this question – 

“How much time do I have to spend on achieving bigger goals and my own personal development?”

My bet on you is hours!  As in hours each day!
