Happy New Year! What is going to help you create the space, and set the stage, or exceptional virtual and remote work and results or you this year?
A large focus of my work in the month of January is on setting the stage or exceptional work. I hope that you will join me for the 21 for 21 Virtual Co-Working Sprints which will run from January 1 – 21 2021, most days at 12 noon ET. Join us at https://www.StandOutVirtually.com
Even after only a few days of sprints under our belts, there are a few themes which are bubbling up on the part of the group members. As I do in my work, “I’m practicing what I preach, and want to share some of these ideas here with you”.
Consider these 5 :
Daily Focus: Creating traction is a key part of exceptional work. IT’s the little steps which add up, and stack up, which I frame as “Daily Steps + Consistent Action = Momentum” in the Coaching Business Builder and PlanDoTrack Resources.
Develop a routine that works for you – From being aware of our circadian rhythms (when we are at our best) to creating boundaries in our work, what is the routine which will work best for you?
Spend time planning and reflecting. The book is called PlanDoTrack for a reason – it’s a three stage process. We need to plan, then get into action and then reflect on what’s working and what’s not in order to track. What is your natural inclination in terms of where you spend your time. Is it PLANNING? DOING? TRACKING?
Which focus is really needed in your business this year?
Schedule it – As we were discussing recently in the 21 for 21 Co-Working Series – just like Peter Drucker said “What doesn’t get scheduled, doesn’t get done”. What time are you scheduling in your calendar? Looking for a starting place? Join us for the 21 for 21 series this month.
Here’s a calendar of the events – Link to https://www.standoutvirtually.com/uploads/3/7/3/7/37374841/21_for_21_calendar_update_1.1.21.pdf
When are you going to schedule some time?
Connect – Remote Work can feel isolating. Be sure to connect in with others as you move forward with your work. What are you doing to be connect in with colleagues, old and new? What time are you earmarking to do this on a regular basis?
And finally as a bonus – be sure to fuel your soul. We can only go hard for so long if we don’t enjoy something. What’s going to help you get renewed? Enjoy your work?
