Every day in our personal and professional lives, we face several choices and decisions; some are more critical than others. However, how we respond to these choices can have a lasting impact on our careers, relationships, and finances.
As I get older, I am learning that even the smallest choices on a regular basis, hold a significant impact. For example, doing the ‘right thing’ when no one notices; It is not only grounding but cathartic in a way to stay consistent with my core values. Covid has left many of us struggling to manage the increasing job demands, managing productivity, and efficiencies, and added home-life challenges. It amazes me how we have learned to adapt despite the ongoing disruptions in our lives. I believe the pandemic has made us stronger and braver. It has enabled us to make changes in the way we conduct business including applying new tactics, adjusting work hours, and even changing where we work.
The simple acronym, W I N originated from a famous Notre Dame football coach, Lou Holtz. It stands for ‘What’s Important Now.’ Holtz encouraged his players to focus on what mattered most at any given time to stay in the game. As we head into the summer months, it may be the perfect opportunity to sit back, choose to take a break from your hectic work schedule and ponder W I N for your success. What is on your list of core challenges you are facing in your business? How will you oversee these challenges? I recommend that you prioritize your W I N which should include your well-deserved happiness.
Enjoy your summer.
“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears”
