Let’s talk about OUR successes from last week and build on each others WINS!
Recap on ABCs of Successful Week – Self-Reflection & Self-Rating
Attitude & Action (Plan)
Results: Maintained a positive attitude and developed a comprehensive Plan for the week. I spent more time in one area of my Plan then I’d anticipated – I realized this on Thursday but adjusted so my time on Friday was more equally distributed. The weekend I focused on developing my brand on Twitter (specifically my #meGoal hashtag) along with growing quality (targeted) connections.
(Self) Rating: B+
Adjustment for this Week: Spend more time attracting (finding) qualified individuals for our Corporate Clients’ open positions.
Results: (Slightly) Distracted while spending time with my family – checking social media and emails. I remained on-point with coaching clients, business development & networking interactions.
(Self) Rating: C+
Adjustment for this Week: Set a specific time to put the iPhone down (6-9pm) when winding down with my family; carving out this time to be present & engage with them (kids and husband) on different levels. The social media will still be there at 9:15pm and I’m a night owl so I’ll have plenty of time to actively participate & be present there as well.
Control (the Plan) & Clearly Communicate (#meGoal)
Results: On-target. I’m a goal-oriented person and the #meGoal has helped me be more targeted than SMART goal-setting. I write down 4 #meGoal(s) and put them on the bulletin board in my office which serves as a visual reminder to track my daily progress.
(Self) Rating: A+
Adjustment for this Week: Include a #meGoal for family time and what I want to get from it – fulfillment/engagement/growth.
Overall, my self-rating for the week is a B+ which provides me with room for improvement this week. I’d love to hear about your successes and wins – even through the times we miss in one area (see my C+) there are successes (see my A+) in another area. As I work to regain balance in my life this week to enjoy more successes across-the-board, I look forward to hearing about your successes and wins.
Please post or email your successes & wins.
