Weekly – When Things are a Little Off.

How do you handle it?
My car was acting a little off – it’s an older car without all the high tech panels so all I had to go on was the heat gauge arrow that kept rising and rising into that dreaded red zone.

I have a newer truck and I realized that I am living in a false sense of security with it. I have no worries UNLESS something shows up on the panel – a light, a warning message. Even when I back up, I have a camera now to gauge distance.

I love the technology, I love that darn back up screen – and it occurred to me that it was helping to make me, lazy, unaware and dependent.

These are not great traits for a business owner. These are not great traits for sustaining a relationship either.

Because my truck is newer and automatic and because my car is older and a stick shift, every time I get in one or the other I have to readjust my thinking. At the beginning of a drive, it feels awkward, and uncomfortable as my mind and body realizes how to do this vehicle. (I did nearly put myself through the windshield the first time I drove the automatic – the brake is certainly not the clutch!)

And it occurred to me that though it’s a bit of a hassle, it forces me to think, adjust and pay attention.

This is great for my business, my relationships, how I treat my pets. It forces me to check my surroundings, to be alert to signs of trouble, to actually look all around the situation before I move.

Today, ask yourself if you are doing these things for your business. Or, like me, you are allowing things to move along generally without seeing how high that arrow is moving into the red.

Paying attention will prevent your automobile from big trouble and it will also help you save and serve customers before they’re unhappy.

Weekly – Another Month Bites the Dust!

When You Welcome Time Passing

Are you tracking your results?

From research and my own experience conducting the Monday through Friday Accountability call for the last 12 years – tracking will help you.

How do you track and what do you track?

How is easy –
Use a monthly calendar and mark each day you accomplish the tasks you stated.
Keep a gratitude or accomplishment journal – listing the 3 top things you are most happy or grateful about that day.
Fill a glass jar with a penny every time you do something on your list.

What to track is a little bit more complicated – it means you have to take the time to determine what you want, and the steps you must take to get there.

Example: Rather than having a goal of losing weight, or attaining a new customer – the steps to track are:
Weight – eat an apple today/ or a day without sweets
Customer – call a prospect/ or send a note to a past client

Then, when it’s the end of the month – like now – you can look back and know what you did and the results it created.

Because you do create your life, whether you track it or not.

Weekly – Are You Ready to Mow Down the Grass?

Uncontrollable Growth Can Do Damage

When you live on 20 rural acres in the Willamette Valley of Oregon the grass, and brush, and trees, flowers, weeds, grows fast. It’s an explosion of growth, most of which is green and it’s vibrant and beautiful and a huge job to mow.
Getting ready for this growth, like your business growth can be tricky. You want to enjoy the growth, you want to experience all the sights, sounds, smells of success, especially since it may have been a long dormant winter. Enjoying it is bliss and why we do what we do right?

Knowing when to mow down the grass is a question that has many answers depending on who you ask.

One question, of course, is, “Should we mow (temper) the growth at all?” What will happen if we simply let it continue unabated?

Another question might be, If we cut it back, will people (us) still want it?

And of course, “What if it grows out of control and we can’t cut it?” That’s what happens with grass if you let it get so tall and unruly you can’t get the mower through. You end up wrecking your equipment or have to pay double to bring in a bigger machine.

So when does a business person mow the grass?

This is for the owner to answer based on their goals. One thing I rely on is having a team that knows grass. The man who mows for me gives me good counsel, does an excellent job and because I trust him and we keep it under control it’s a win-win for both.

Good luck with your mowing. Don’t you love that fresh cut smell?

Weekly – May Be, May Be Not

This is the Month for Maybes

May – Mother’s day, my mothers birthday, Mayday. Did you know that the term “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday!” is a distress call and as the idea of a man named Frederick Mockford, he came up with the idea for “mayday” because it sounded like the French word for máider, which is defined as “Help me.”Do you ever want to shout – Help me! sometimes? Well, this is the month for it and maybe before we get too overwhelmed we will shout out some maydays to those who could be of help. Who are they?

If you are in this world, of constant stimulation, constant connectedness and constant bombardment of messaging may be the help you need most is to unplug.

For this tip – the mayday is to yourself.

When you ask yourself, “What is one thing I can do today to get clear?” The answer will come. And, if you unplug for a bit, you can allow yourself the space to ask the question and hear the answer.

Secondly – you can mayday to those closest to you. Asking, “Can you help me?” and this second part may be as simple as, “Can you help me see what I’m doing that I could let go of, or delegate?” can be a game changer.

As a leadership coach, my role is to ask those types of questions and see what my client is missing. Do you really have to do all the tasks you are doing? Usually, the answer is no.

One thing many busy professionals forget is to simply ask. This mayday message is this – ask people to help you. Most people adore helping others and when you reach out you let them be a hero. Mayday indeed!

Weekly – Are You in Command of Yourself?

To Give an Authoritative Order

As a pet lover, I give my pets commands. Sit, Stay, Whoa, slow, things I want to happen when I’m with them.

It works too – especially when I’m consistent in my asking/commanding.

Do we do this for ourselves?

The definition of command is to give an authoritative order. An order – for a pet it’s sit, or whoa. What commands are you giving yourself?

Here are some to eradicate:

Don’t be stupid/silly – Stop thinking this! Any command that is negative in tone.

Instead, add these good commands:

Be kind, be open, be loving, be forgiving.

For your business:

Be courteous, be service focused, be gracious.

The whole thing stems from authority, in your life and business you are the authority, now use it well! (That’s a command!)
