- Make time to take care of ourselves and our families
- Prospect and look for new opportunities, even when business/life is good
- Make corrections (and be the one to point them out) rather than excuses
- Look for issues when none are apparent
- Do not allow 8-5 to be a factor in achieving our goals
- Celebrate and recognize the success of others
- Write down our goals and consistently inspect performance against them
- Stomp out complacency; we look for it throughout the organization, especially after big wins
- Understand and accept leadership risk (relying on others for success)
- Strive for those who lead us to not have to worry about anything under our control
Early this morning while exercising in a small hotel gym, I reflected on how fast things are moving in life. My kids are growing up too fast; I am getting older; MCCi is growing faster than ever and our team is phenomenal. I was reminded that balance, growth, and leadership are tough, and that a certain level of stress (each person has their own tolerance) will be present when we are trying to do it all perfectly; The reality is that perfection is impossible and that is the reason for reflection. Consistent adjustments are what is key.
This week I am in three different states and will be part of some very important meetings. We are prepared, and they will go as well as they can because our team is awesome. But what am I most excited about this week? The daddy daughter pool day with my 4 and 6 year old daughters on Saturday. Just as much preparation is going into that: Early morning grocery store run, hot dogs, popsicles, all-day pool day, bubbles, games, umbrellas……..
