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.

If you would like help becoming aware and reaching higher levels of results – set up a complimentary success clarifying call with me.

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?
