When All Things Matter
"Focus on the matter that matters the most" has been my favorite quote lately. The operative word being FOCUS. It is fourth quarter and as of today there are 115 days left in this year (not that anyone is counting). Are you on track for ending the year as planned? Are you FOCUSED?
I did a Facebook Live video a few days ago, "4th Quarter Check-in/ checklist" and here I discussed a few key reminders for you to consider incorporating with your year-end processes as you begin to transition into this quarter, close out this year and prepare for next year. Please click the link above and checkout the video. One additional area of focus I want to draw to your attention concerns your soul - your mind, will, and emotions. Leaders are expected to make preparations for ending the year strong and beginning the new year even stronger, however, in prioritizing all things that matter, are you remembering to include yourself in this process?
I wrote a blog last month, "New Beginnings After Final Endings" (please click the highlighted link and check it out if you haven't done so) and in that blog I focused on the importance of knowing the season you are in and recognizing when your season has changed. You need to know when to change in order to properly function in the right season. In my last blog I used a quote from where he stated “without the ability to end things, people stay stuck, never becoming who they are meant to be, never accomplishing all that their talents and abilities should afford them.” So I am checking in with you asking ...is this you? Are you stuck?
While reviewing your organizational checklists remember to check on you. When was the last time you've done a soul examination? I want to share with you one of my latest leadership development programs, READY TO GET R.E.A.L. I just launched this exclusive executive coaching program, Ready to Get R.E.AL. (Reliable, Ethical, Authentic, Learner),™ for leaders who are serious about getting to their next level professionally. Together, we will go through a series of processes designed to pinpoint the behaviors associated with mindset and soul issues that are often overlooked in many leadership development processes. One critical outcome of this program is having a plan of action you can use to guide you to make the necessary changes to move forward.
