Be Strategic


Be strategic rather than overwhelmed this year.

If you are already overwhelmed this year, you are probably not being very strategic!

Better to do a few things well. Wouldn’t you agree?

Most people have too much on their plate! Make 2020 the year to focus your resources on one or two pivotal objectives, whose success will lead to a cascading series of benefits.

What a difference three daily goals can make!

At the end of each day, I like to reflect on all the gifts my day brought me. Sometimes I journal. However, I always get three goals for the next day down in writing before I leave my office.

I also make sure that at least one of tomorrow’s activities supports my pivotal strategic objective. Which for me this year is growing my speaking business and being even smarter with Google.
