When was the last time, you took some time, to do a little audit on your life?
It’s all too easy to get wrapped up in the day-to-day hustle and bustle, that it can become a challenge to ever take a step back, and take a bit of a bird’s eye perspective into where you’re at, what’s working, and where you may be looking to make a change…
Over the last 9 days, I’ve been meeting one-on-one with every staff member within the organization I’m working with – from the General Manager to the housekeeper their first week on the job. (I’ve conducted close to 60 so far… 73 folks in total, so I’m in the home stretch!)
Now I love people – so it’s been fun – and also fascinating.
When you are given the space to think, reflect, and answer a few questions – you just may find out you have a lot more to offer than you realize!
While the questions I’ve been asking address their current role, they could also very easily be addressed to your current role… ie., your current place in life.
And so, instead of sharing with you any new concepts or new insights this week, I’m going to ask you a few questions instead!
What do you love about what you are doing right now?
What is working well?
What is maybe not working so well? (ie. what are some ‘areas of opportunity’ for you?)
What ideas do you have to make it better?
What is one professional goal you have? (Another way to think about it – where do you ideally see yourself in 1 year from now? And if 1 year is too far away, 6 months from now?)
What is one personal goal you have? (Is there a habit you want to start, a sport or activity you’ve always wanted to try, or do you want to be in bed by 11pm?)
Finally, choosing ONE of the above goals, what is the ‘first, next brave step,’ which will take 5 minutes or less, that you can commit to doing in the next 24 hours, which will help move the dial forward just a little bit?
More often than not, when we want to start something new, or do something a bit differently, it can be overwhelming. And yet, when we can identify that first small step (especially one that will only take 5 minutes or less!) it becomes much more doable.
And that first small step is what brings about the biggest difference. Because the momentum builds from there!
So, I hope you take 5-10 minutes this week to answer these questions for yourself… and then commit to taking that first, small, brave step of action!
