I was talking to some senior sales leaders that spread across the industry this week in our monthly collaboration call.
All of them have families and high-pressure jobs and one thing in common. Time management challenges. I am definitely taking notes our first little one is due in June!
The topic de jour was prioritization and time management.
While we didn’t solve world hunger, we did make some progress:
- They all pointed back to the company vision and values…or in some cases their own personal family vision, values, and critical success factors.
- Recentering on what your purpose is…and what gets you fired up every morning.
- One of our leaders decided to do a less work-work each morning and more contribution to self, learning, and family before starting the day.
- When you focus on One thing, a great book, and the highest priority thing…it often makes everything else easier or unnecessary.
Finally, shared camaraderie helps with prioritization, accountability, and mastery.
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
