How to Kick it Up a Notch!
It’s not unusual for things to get a bit boring in business … yes … I mean B-O-R-I-N-G, routine, run-of-the-mill. However, it is imperative that we FOCUS on finding a way to “kick it up a notch,” as Chef Emeril Lagasse would say. That’s where creativity and courageousness will come into play and often make things more interesting. Struggling with familiar-itis is normal, but we cannot afford to get stuck in this danger zone. Our global business community will not allow it … if we expect to thrive or even survive.
So … what can we do to add some excitement and meaningfulness back into our business? To be honest, oftentimes our business is a reflection of who we are. If we’re feeling a bit sluggish, it’s easy to hang that same cloud over our business affairs. We must frequently reflect on why we’re doing whatever we’re doing in the first place, in order to keep our spirits high or least on an even keel.
Remember how excited you were when you first started out? How can you get that joy back? The answer is not that difficult. It all begins with Y-O-U. If you change your outlook to a more optimistic one, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you’ll begin to generate a fresh new batch of creativity.
The beauty is … enthusiasm is contagious! The great Zig Ziglar said, “For every sale you miss because you’re too enthusiastic, you will miss a hundred because you’re not enthusiastic enough.”
So, whatever it takes to get your enthusiasm back again, be willing to give it a try. It surely makes a BIG difference when you kick things up a notch!
Enjoy your weekend!
