What Do You Need?

Many times as I am around town at networking meetings, I am asked what I need in my business.  My answer is typically one of two things…complainers and people who are chronically late.

Complainers complain about many things and although I am unable to help them with their neighbor's lawn or the thoughtlessness of a coworker, I can help them with so many other things…like how to make the most of traffic, how to organize their day around what matters most and primarily how to stop complaining and start making things happen.  I am by no means a miracle-worker yet when you have an unemotional and objective perspective on your woes, it seems to make them easier to digest.

Now for those that are chronically late, this is the easy one.  There are many time management tools that can be utilized to help us arrive on time.  One of the most significant is to only schedule 50% of our day.  By practicing the 50% rule, it frees up a large portion of your day to accommodate appointments that run long or unexpected issues like sick children and flat tires.  If we are lucky enough to stay on time all day, use the extra time to catch up on nagging tasks that would otherwise be put off.  Having such items off your "to do" list will eliminate far more stress than you would think.

Regardless of what happens during your day, few things feel as good as completing everything we should have plus a few extras.  Now take the time to pay attention to the complainers in your life, even if you are one of them.

Have a NEAT day!
