Okay, it’s been a while since my last post. There’s my confession. But in the honour of a New Year I am turning over a new leaf. I’m starting with a new ritual, one that I believe will set me up for more likely success. No need to create elaborate posts with all kinds of bells and whistles, just a thought to help people think about change.

Focus on your successes, not on what you haven't done yet.

I was inspired in part by Seth Godin’s recent post, talking about writer’s block. He talks about making your individual commitments to writing smaller, so that each piece is not such a lot of pressure, such a big deal. This theory applies to any project, of course, and many mentors have offered a similar pearl of wisdom to accomplish goals. Tony Robbins says to “break things into little chunks”. That way you can celebrate each step instead of having to wait until you complete a huge section.

Service excellence requires teamwork and  celebrating successes

Encouraging yourself as a leader is as important as cheering on the troops. Teamwork requires everyone’s contribution and service excellence is a tireless goal. How will you motivate others if you don’t fuel your own reserves of energy? Recognition is fuel. Let people congratulate you and respond to each step you take; it will remind you to do the same for your team.
