"I didn't see that coming."
"I'm not sure how that happened...everything was working so smoothly."
"What do you mean we're not on schedule?"
(Near) The Top of My Game
I have been unbelievably blessed in my career. I have grown as a professional, as a leader, and ultimately as an executive. Looking back it is clear the opportunities I've had, and the organizations I've worked for...and still do today...have been a #HealthcareHR guy's dream come true.
...and that is part of my struggle.
How many of us continue to push ourselves when things are going well as compared to when we are hungry for success? Is that even possible? Compare the boxing champion who is at the top of their sport with the #1 ranked challenger in the world who wants to take that title away so badly.
How does the champion keep the competitive fire burning?
What are the steps the champion builds into their routine to ensure sustained success?
You + Team
I don't believe there is a magic formula. There isn't a secret to success that is out of reach.
For me, it comes down to a simple plan:
- develop personal habits that drive success (document and repeat them each day)
- build an accountability team that isn't afraid to challenge you to improve
Software won't do it. The latest app won't do it. Listening to self-improvement "gurus" for hours and hours won't do it either.
You have to do it. Get focused. Develop the habits that work for you. Build the team you need. Get started.
...and sustain it.
How About You
Has success crept up on you, and now you have more at risk than ever before?
This is not a crisis...this is a chance to maintain your competitive edge. This is how you're going to stay sharp, and effective, and continue to think bigger.
What's next for you?
I'd love to hear from you.
