Live Look-ing Forward
By Robin Stevens, Internal Operations Coach
The 2013 Live Look at Peterson Plumbing earlier this month was very successful and brought together business people interested in growing their business and themselves as leaders. The enthusiasm during this two day event was infectious and every business left with 3 Big Rocks they wanted to work on going into 2014.
So where are you today with your 3 Big Rocks? You boarded your plane, settled back in your seat, buckled your seat belt and got as comfortable as possible for the long or short flight home. The plane takes off and you begin to reflect on the last two days. You begin to picture yourself walking through the front doors of your business with more bounce in your step and a plan to work on your goals, but as you walk through the doors you are hit with questions and issues before you even get to your office. After about 45 minutes of everyone getting you up to speed on what has been going on, you set your workbook on your desk and get back to business. As the day goes on paperwork gets piled on top your workbook and the pile gets moved around on your desk several times.
So let me ask you this, where is your workbook today? Is it where all the other training manuals are? If you can’t find it, FIND IT NOW, yes I mean RIGHT NOW!! Open it to the 3 Big Rock page and reread it. Do you remember how you felt completing this page and how important these items were to you? Now, don’t let your goals and dreams get lost in your office with all the other manuals sitting on a bookshelf.
If you are serious about improving your business and yourself, keep this workbook close. Let it continue to be a tool to reach your goals and dreams. You can make anything happen as long as remain focused and take action.
Remember that your company is a reflection of you, so remember to look in the mirror.
