Wake Up Call
The kids had their first full day of summer vacation, and they’re like see-saws. First, they’re excited, then their bored, hungry, tired, thirsty, yada yada yada. This is started off to be a great summer.
Back to the task at hand. This week has been a week of challenges. So many things taking place in my business and our region was challenged to step it up in order to make things happen. For the past 4 days, the challenge was to set appointments with others to show how we can enhance their lives. The challenge usually calls for setting at least one appointment for that day. So, it could happen on your first call or your 20th call, as long as you set that appointment, you’re done. The idea behind this one a day challenge is to show consistency in our efforts. If this was done every day for 5 days a week, you’re looking at a minimum of 20 appointments in that month. Thinking about how that can impact so many lives is monumental.
For me, this was a necessary challenge, and I needed to step it up a few notches. Things have slowed a bit, not progressing at the pace I would like, but this challenge has opened up my eyes and made me realize I need to keep my eye on the prize. Look long term and not the quick, easy fixes. I also had a talk tonight with my mentor and he hit on some key areas that I need to tweak a bit which should yield better results. After that call, I went to work and kept going until I saw the results. We will see what happens over the course of the next week to see how those results pan out. Whatever the outcome, I am not going to stop. I will keep going because regardless of what others do around me, I will keep going.
