The year is closing fast.
This might be a good time to knock off that small-annoying task you’ve been hesitating to do.
“But I don’t have time now,” you might say, “it will take away from my family, the parties, the experience.”
Sure, coaching can do that — steal your time. And coaches need time to regenerate and connect with family and friends.
Yet, a terrific amount of time gets wasted these last few days of December.
A wise coach might be able to get one or two nagging things knocked off, WITHOUT, interfering with family/friend time or movie trips to StarWars (or better yet, Alvin).
For instance, recently, I focused on completing three things that had been bugging me for a month. Not big things, in fact, they took less that 15 minutes for each — but I kept putting them off. Finally getting them off the list felt great.
There might be an advantage to taking action now. One of my task was to order a few uniform replacement pieces. I called up the company and got the rep immediately. He told me that they were super-quiet, this being a slow week for them. I think he was actually glad to have the call.
Action You Just Might Want To Do
Don’t go nutso here, be reasonable. Is there one thing, small thing, you need to do — but have been ignoring? Something you could do quickly but for some reason just didn’t get it done, such as:
- Finalize a contract for 2016
- Call that one recruit you’re just-not-sure-about
- Return the stapler you borrowed (and the 11 other things)
- Empty the recycle box
- Clean the top shelf of the closet
- Enter receipts
- Clean a workspace
- Empty out a backpack
- Fill out a short quick coaching survey
Look at your schedule between now and New Years Eve. Can you squeeze in 20 minutes to get the task done — WITHOUT detracting from your plans?
In less than one week you’ll be bombarded with plans/thoughts/gimmicks/resolutions on how to make 2016 a great year. By doing one or two small tasks now, you’re already ahead of the game.
I’ll be taking off until Jan 4th. I hope you and those special to you have a joyous end to 2015. Thanks for being here, you make this a special journey.
