TRIPLE III TIME: Christmas…New Years…Already??

OK…I understand that the “flow” of business is often “altered” in light of the holiday season. And most of the time I will admit I do NOT adjust well to the resulting change in intensity, momentum and profession-directed energy.  You all know what I mean.  But this year I have decided to use the Christmas and New Years events to carve out a TRIPLE III TIME message that still pushes that creativity button.  So here goes!

How about if we first use the Christmas time as an opportunity to REMEMBER last years “Best-of-the-Best” personal and professional occurrences!  Here’s a list of TOP 10 rememberings to help you think about your own:

  1. Realizing the positive impact you may have by teaching college classes and making your topics “LIVE”!
  2. Feeling a special smile show up when you know you can still call your greatest mentor and get beautiful advice.
  3. Understanding that hi-tech isn’t for everyone and sharing your ebook in a fun printed form.
  4. Using your professional network to potentially help a true friend find a comfortable career trac forward.
  5. The “positives” that are returned when you are not afraid or embarrassed to proclaim you are still learning too.
  6. Getting reminded over and over that reconnecting with family (yes work family too) is priceless.
  7. Witnessing that some of (or parts of) your past principles and professional are being replicated.
  8. That the practice of making one new business contact each week…does pay you back.
  9. Always looking at your personal and professional actions and deciding if they would make your Ma & Dad…and Grandparents proud.
  10. Taking pride in the belief that colleagues still look to you for new ideas everyday…EVERYDAY.

I will toss out my New Year “Something to look forward to!”…TOP 10 next week.
