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.
