What Success Looks Like on a Monday

RECAP FROM LAST WEEK'S POST ON REFLECTION:
The important thing is to incorporate what we see going on behind us into our decision making, while maintaining our focus and speed moving ahead. That is the beauty of taking time to reflect on your business performance even when you are doing okay --you can focus on your strengths and build up your weaknesses.

Get over it, people. Monday morning, with all its tricks and detours, comes each and every week. And, as an entrepreneur, I can attest to how Mondays never get better. Even with an alternative schedule, Monday morning still finds me.


All Who Wander Are Not Lost

I am a wanderer. I don't even expect my to do list to be touched Monday morning. Not that it doesn't; I just don't beat myself up about spending a couple hours reading and "listening" online. In my parallel universe, where I live as a writer, it is important to wander to find future readers and build community. Performance and Change Facilitator, Deb Nystrom, believes that the time people spend on Monday morning can actually be a healthy part of productivity. "Some people are in learning mode, others need time for reviewing what's going on in the world..." 

Success is Showing Up

Any time you step out with your best foot, you are showing up. Whether your best foot be represented by appearance, effort, or preparation (or all of the above), make sure you BRING IT and much of your job will be done. Sometimes, especially on a Monday, showing up is all you can muster.  I went to a career conference recently, and the keynote presenter, Jocelyn Giangarde, began with a quote that I live by: "Eighty percent of success is showing up." Sometimes, that's what success looks like on a Monday.

Much Success this Week,

The Educated Emotion

Inspiration for Entrepreneurs via the Olympics

With the help of Social Media, we are all surrounded by discussion about the Olympics! The only people talking online about the Olympics more than the United States are Great Britain and Australia. The media has been struggling to keep up with all the news, controversy, and highlights. 

Recently, one of my clients pointed out to me that there are a lot more competitions in the Olympics than he was privy to via his local television networks or newspaper. Out of curiosity, I looked it up and found that there were some 36 competitions with everything from Beach Volleyball to Shooting.

It would be nice if there was more time and attention afforded to some of the other sports represented at . There are some really talented and dedicated folks competing. It is inconceivable how much they all sacrifice to participate. It is inspirational to me even before execution or finding out who wins...just the mere concept of giving up everything within your comfort zone to step out on faith and do somet…
