Time to Read – three minutes
Time to re-read (if the first read isn’t scary) – four minutes
Last week – Know where you want to go – focused on your Outcome.
This week we look at the most uncomfortable part of the formula:
Know where you are Now – The You
This is about ownership. You are either in ownership of your life, or you are not (there is no half way house).
Being in ownership means that you take 100% ownership of everything that you say and do. If you do, then you are in ownership. If you don’t, then you are not (and in this case it might be an idea to find out who is, and give them a call).
How do you apply this?
In your personal life – you are totally responsible and accountable for everything you speak, every action and reaction you take.
In your team – you will never say anything about another team member, behind their back, that you would not say to their face.
In your organisation it means you get to the point in meetings, bringing truth in the room – properly and professionally, with a target of reducing your time in meetings by 50%.
(If you don’t feel a bit scared at this point, please return to the top and re-read).
Finally it means acknowledging the skills, talents and strengths that you already have. In other words, from this very moment (check the clock) you will never let what you can’t do, stop you doing what you can.
Next week – Know what you have to do, to get to where you want to go – The Moment
