How’s your Monday going so far? Were you excited to wake up this morning? Were you fired up to accomplish great things, or did you think to yourself, “If I just make it through today, Tuesday will be much more tolerable!”
I’ve learned to love Monday mornings, and I’ll share why YOU can too. Oh, and by the way it requires ZERO work on your part.
Here’s what I’ll ask you to do each weekend, once on Saturday, once on Sunday
Before you go to bed on each weekend night, think to yourself, “What did I learn/observe today that has a business lesson in it?”
Why is this important? Everyone loves stories, and when you start noticing business lessons in your environment, you’ll be the one person in your group sharing compelling and interesting stories with your colleagues (and clients and prospects) each Monday morning.
People will look to you for motivation and for leadership.
Now, of course you should still have the conversations about the Olympics, and how Simone Biles, Michael Phelps, and Usain Bolt seem otherworldly. In addition to that – and like an Olympic athlete would – constantly seek to refine your business acumen.
I learned this by accident. How? Like 500 million other people, I have an Instagram account, and at least 5 times a week, I try to post a quick quote or business story. Until I had that “obligation,” I didn’t notice all the great things happening around me.
Remember, this is not, “What can I post about myself on social media that will make me look good?” It’s, “What can I share that will benefit other people?”
Give yourself permission to pause and pay attention, and you’ll learn to love Mondays too.
Can you see this idea working for you? Will this be #AdviceThatSticks? If so, please share with a friend who needs it today.
