Today is the last day of January … my leadership tip this week is to have you schedule a 60 – minute meeting with yourself to reflect on your activities and results for the month.
Seriously … put the meeting on your calendar !
Avoid all distractions. Go offsite, or close the door to your office, deactivate your email and telephone. At your meeting ask yourself some great questions … questions that will cause you to think deeply.
Ask time related questions like:
If I had another 4 – hours this month, what would I have done with it ?
What were the 3- biggest time -wasters? … and what can I do to make sure they don’t happen again next month?
Ask goal related questions like:
Which January outcomes am I most pleased with?
Which January outcomes am I most disappointed in ? … and what can I do to make sure they don’t continue to disappoint ?
Ask professional development questions like:
What are the 3 – things I learned this past month that helped me with my professional growth and development?
Who did I help with professional growth and development this past month?
Who on my team needs the most professional development and how will I help them next month?
I’m hopeful these questions will stimulate your thinking and will help you generate the relevant questions most important to you and your business.
The probability of a successful year dramatically rises with your ability to constantly evaluate performance and make necessary adjustments.
