So I mentioned a few months ago that I had started going to the gym. I made a commitment to do it and Nelson and I have agreed to go at night after work.
Yesterday wasn’t a stellar day for me. I was disorganized (the horror!) and a cascade of things just made it worse. And honestly, when I got home at 7 pm, the very last thing I wanted to do was go exercise.
But I’d made a commitment to my health and working out was part of that. So, I strapped on my stupid gym shoes and did a brisk 2 miles on the treadmill. And I felt better for it.
Business is the same way. We make commitments to our clients and staff members to show up. Even when we don’t feel like it.
We commit to being in touch, to showing up prepared, and doing what we say we’re going to do.
Being organized helps you do these things regularly and reliably. And my hope and goal for my newsletter is that it will help you be better organized so you can show up more consistently for your staff and clients alike.
I shot a quick video that talks about why I decided to launch this newsletter. I hope you’ll check it out:
Organize for a Reason – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cf7gjwWbuBM&feature=youtu.be
The first issue should hit mailboxes the beginning of May 2012 and the monthly investment is very affordable at $21.95. It’s like getting me one-on-one each month to help you get – and stay – organized!
And you can officially join me next week!
In the meantime, ask yourself how you’re showing up – regularly, reliably and consistently – or a little unorganized, unfocused, and unhappy to be wearing those business shoes?
