It’s the first video of the year. I woke up early…and it shows.
I couldn’t stop thinking about my three words.
I had a list of 10 different words and I finally settled on three.
My three words for 2015 are:
I want to play everyday like I’m in the two-minute warning.
If I don’t get these things done, I lose the opportunity. Things must get done.
I need to better choose WHERE I focus my energy.
I’ve tried to do too much, I’ve taken on too much.
It’s time to be more focused on where my energy goes.
I cannot rely on the universe to simply bring me business because I want it. I’m not entitled to business, I don’t inherently deserve it, I must work for it, which means going and getting it. Our biggest client is the result of an outbound effort.
But it’s not just about new business; in my relationships, both personal and professional, I have put nearly all of the pressure for maintaining the relationship on the other person. Far too infrequently have I proactively reached out to a friend just to say hello. Far too few times have I reached out to someone in my professional network just to her how things are going, and how I might be able to help. I know this is selfish, and I can do better.
