You basically skipped into work this morning because it was the first day in weeks when it looked like you actually had a calm day.
Only one meeting scheduled?! Unheard of! You can actually get work done today (you know… be able to cross things OFF your to-do list instead of just adding)! You even scheduled in a couple of minutes just to think about you and where you want to go in your career.
And then the fires started up. Again. By 10:00 a.m. – the reality that your hopes of “getting everything done” today is looking like just a dream.
It’s hard to find and TAKE the time to step back and really focus on you: your growth, your path, your development.
With that in-mind, we’ve got a question:
Why does your development matter?
Take a minute and think about why your development matters to you.
Write that ‘why’ down somewhere to make it real.
If you don’t know WHY something is important (other than you should be doing it) then it becomes much more difficult to prioritize the time to make it happen.
After you know why your development matters, come up with a short phrase like:
- I want to be better than I currently am
- I am committed to growth
- I believe in myself enough to believe I can do more
Take this phrase and put is somewhere you’ll remember! Knowing why this matters to you will give you more of a push to keep going.
Over the next 2 weeks, we’ll give you some more practical tips on how to continue to work on your development!
