OK… Maybe not change your LIFE! But, it could be a game changer.
"The ONE Resolution You Need To Make In 2012." I ran across this headline at Fast Company.com… as usual I was zooming through and just about got whiplash as I screeched to a halt to click on the link. The ONE resolution… What could that possibly be? I thought. Dayna Steele hit the nail on the head. If you were to resolve to do just one thing, this is IT…
"Do what you say you are going to do." Could be a game changer… right?
Dayna gives examples…
If you say you are going to call, call.
Promise to send someone information? Send it.
Finish a job when you promised… or earlier… with quality work.
Let people know as soon as you can when you are running late for a meeting or won’t make it at all.
I would like to add to that…
If you commit to being in a meeting… be there… not on your PDA!
If you tell your clients that you are responsive… make sure you are, ALL the time!
If you commit to writing articles or blogging, make a schedule… and just do it!
If you tell your family you will be home… be home and be present!
Focus… The benefit of accountability is increased credibility. Colleagues, friends and family can count on your word. When you make a commitment to yourself… keep that too! So, in 2012… Make BIG promises and keep them. It could be a game changer when it comes to business development… not to mention everywhere else.
