SURPASS YOUR DREAMS

MONDAY MORNING ACTION TIP #14
Does making a commitment scare you?
The hardest thing about making a commitment is feeling like you are stuck once you've made it. You will have to stop talking about your plans and start doing something about them. This is what often happens to us in our careers. We want to make improvements, but we do not always take the steps necessary to move ourselves forward.
"What happens if I make the wrong move?" This question can stop you before you even begin. The answer is simple, if you make the wrong move, you move on. The time invested will not be wasted. You will adjust, and use what you learned to put yourself on a path that will get you closer to reaching your career goals.
THE WEEKLY ACTION CHALLENGE
Today, think about all the loose ends (unfinished business) in your career. From those loose ends, choose the top priority. Then commit to it. This week's challenge is to stick to your commitment by accomplishing your top priority, or setting the forces in motion to ensure that you will accomplish it soon. It does not matter if you have kept your commitments in the past. What matters is you are a person who will keep them in the future.
So, what do you say? You only have one life to live, so it might as well be a life you love!

"When reading last week's tip, all I could think of was where does it say in big bold red letters to print this out and keep it in front of you at all times! By allowing your fellow employees and employers to see a different person every week enables their brain to say, "there's something different about Fred/Jane!!" in a positive way. Thank you for showing me an effective way to get noticed at work." Mike Ellixson
"I am normally very business-like when I am at work, so the people in my office only see my more serious side. Your tip reminds me that it is OK to take the time for some small talk and getting to know the more personal side of the people I work with, along with letting them get to know a less serious me. Thank you for the reminder!" Jennifer LaPrade
Congratulations to both of you!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
