Allow Yourself To Step Back and Evaluate

Most of us find ourselves busy with several things at once. It's no different for me. However, since the beginning of 2013, I found that one thing that has helped to get me back on track is to commit to myself to take a step back from time to time and evaluate the results of what I have been doing and determining if I need to make any adjustments to my approach.

I Am

I AM was written in 3 distinct ways. In addition to the 2 words in quotes like I just did above, it was written in the form of an equation reading, “I + A = M”.

Don’t Let Others Tell You of What You Are Capable

I came to the realization that this type of behavior is exactly the opposite of what it is when I work with my clients. In a coaching relationship, the focus is always on looking toward whatever steps need to be taken to make the client be as successful as possible.

Finding the Networking Approach That Is Comfortable For You

Networking is not a comfortable activity for many people. They often do not know what to say? Others are turned off at the prospect of being sold to, particularly if the event involves vendors or individuals looking to promote their business. However, in a world where individuals are actually finding employment positions lasting for a lot shorter period of time (some studies say as short as four years per assignment), and with businesses retrenching and redefining themselves frequently, networking is likely to go hand an hand with transition no matter what endeavor you are pursuing.

Are You One Who Always Says “NO”?

One of the realities about our world today is that we learn of things happening around our world faster than ever before. There is not much that can happen that does not quickly prompt several internet articles, newscasts, videos, etc. in a matter of minutes. Often there are great pluses in having instant access. However, what I find equally disturbing is the amount of negative reaction that any article, any report, any activity can generate. I am all in favor of there being disagreement on the way to approach a situation.
