Reading the signs correctly

December 31, 2020

Reading the signs correctly, it appears we’ve reached the end of the year, and what a year it has been.

Others may look back on 2020 and offer their opinions to its impact. Right now, let’s spend a few minutes reflecting on where we are at this moment.

Reading the signs correctly, we can connect with the present and, regardless of our physical location, understand here is the starting point for all subsequent efforts and, ideally, achievements.

Inhale the new, exhale the old and enjoy the opportunities 2021 offers us.

Kindest regards, many thanks for your ongoing support and Happy New Year.

Brian.

How excited are you by today?

December 20, 2020

Following on from the previous post here, ‘What’s your daily call to action?’, let me ask you another key question: ‘How excited are you by today?

If the quarter, month and week have been planned well, then it is likely today will be filled with tasks and actions designed to ensure you are heading in the desired direction.

Perhaps you have already hit your targets for 2020 and are in ‘Holiday mode’. If so, answering ‘How excited are you by today?’ is easy as it could well be filled with events, activities and the like programmed to provide maximum enjoyment.

But what happens when the response to ‘How excited are you by today?’ is “Not very enthusiastic at all about today or indeed any day”?

In these instances, giving ourselves tiny assignments to complete in a short space of time might be a way to establish the habit of ‘reaching our goals’. From this beginning, we can appreciate that being excited about subsequent ‘todays’ is not impossible after all.

Please feel free to share your thoughts on the inquiry ‘How excited are you by today?

What’s your daily call to action?

December 17, 2020

With the year nearly at a close, what’s your daily call to action?

Putting aside how you did yesterday, and ignoring the plans for the rest of the month, having clarity around the inquiry ‘What’s your daily call to action?’ ensures today is lived in the most effective, productive and impactful manner possible.

Implementing our daily call to action keeps us on track to achieving heartfelt goals. The alternative strategy of hoping our goals will magically occur is, according to most people I ask, less successful. That said, choosing which to undertake is, of course, a personal matter.

So, what’s your daily call to action? Whatever it is, good luck with its completion.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Engaging with our audience

December 13, 2020

Engaging with our audience to the best of our ability is an option we always have, regardless of our job, role or employment status.

There are few occasions we work in isolation. At some stage of a project or endeavour, we might be interacting with stakeholders, engaging with our audience. Those making up ‘our audience’ could be colleagues, clients, suppliers, some folk of authority or the general public at large.

Ensuring we are engaging with our audience in an open fashion puts them, and us, at ease in addition to creating the basis for a mutually enjoyable experience.

On the other hand, engaging with our audience with indifference sets us up to have our efforts judged through critical and even hostile eyes. How we go about engaging with our audience remains, as ever, ours to decide, no?

Clarity about what we need

December 10, 2020

Taking stock of our position involves also having clarity about what we need to propel us to our goals. Identifying a gap in our abilities, resources and so forth, allows us to begin overcoming the shortfalls.

Additionally, we shouldn’t forget that obtaining clarity about what we need in many instances highlights our efforts as being the ‘missing link’ between where we are and where we wish to be.

Seeking clarity about what we need is an exercise of reflection, one perhaps suitable as part of a coaching discovery session conversation. To set up a chance to explore the issue in such a way, get in contact.

Right now, please feel free to share your thoughts on the ideas raised here by leaving a comment below.

Thanks for connecting to read this ‘Clarity about what we need’ post, and don’t forget to like and share it.

Looking back to look forward

December 3, 2020

As we enter into the final month of this ‘different’ year, looking back to look forward seems a worthwhile exercise. Noting the distance covered from where we began with our key objectives for 2020 and where we are now, gives us a perspective of our progress.

Setting aside the various obstacles we have had to face, and continue to do so in many instances, looking back to look forward offers us a moment of reflection, also regarding our attitude towards the objectives.

We know whether we have done everything in our power to reach this or that and, also if we are honestly willing to up our efforts in the case of not having hit the targets yet.

Furthermore, looking back to look forward, we are in a position to clarify what we desire for the coming months. Having this information puts us in a strong position to undertake associated actions. Choosing to use the input, remains, of course, something for each of us to decide.

Thanks for reading this ‘Looking back to look forward’ post.

Kindest regards.

Brian.
