"I don't care how good you think you are, or how great others think you are - you can improve, and you will.
Being relentless means demanding more of yourself than anyone else could ever demand of you, knowing that every time you stop, you can still do more.
You must do more. The minute your mind thinks, "Done," your instincts say "Next."
- Tim Grover
How are you going to be relentless in your career? Is it playing it safe, avoiding risk like so many of your colleagues around the conference room table? Or, is there another door waiting for you to kick open?
Safe = Death
With so many changes, pressures, and expectations on leaders in today's world of work, taking the same old tired path of safety and excuses is unacceptable.
There is only one option...so what are you waiting for?
Finding the proper balance between our professional and personal lives is a never ending challenge. The solution is not as complicated as you might think.
Commit to connecting with those you love on a very regular basis (daily, weekly.) Call, visit, text, facetime, tweet, or spend time with them....it doesn't matter how you do it...just make sure they hear from you no matter what.
Fitness and Nutrition
This might be the most difficult because society has basically allowed us to default to an endless list of excuses so we can avoid being healthy, and eat piles of garbage on our couches night after night.
Stop it. Download MyFitnessPal, start tracking what you put in your body, and for God's sake get up and move each day.
When was the last time you took the stairs and didn't feel like dying after one flight?
How About You
Life is an amazing adventure...and we can achieve so much more than we ever thought possible. However, corporate cultures, society, and the obsession with "busyness" has created the myth that a relentless attitude is somehow odd.
I'm calling BS on that. Being relentless is the only way to live.
I'd love to hear from you.
