A new take on “Do what you love”

I met this really successful guy today.

After a lot of discussion about what made him so successful, he said…..ask yourself, “Are you doing what you love?” It reminded me of my mom always saying “Do what you love and the money will follow.”

And then he added this magical twist….”Are you bringing what you love to what you are doing?”

WOW!!! When you really bring what you love to whatever you’re doing, you no longer have to be on the mad quest. It will all appear. I promise!

When it’s time to get things moving, it’s time to get on the road!

I hate traveling. Maybe you do, too.

But, the fact remains that if you want to pour gasoline on the embers of your business – get in your car – hop a plane. Get in FRONT of as many people as you can.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a trip is worth a million! THEN PACK YOUR CALENDAR – anything less then four meetings a day is weeny!

Don’t be afraid to be creative with your customers!

So, I find myself in a competitive bid situation with a Request For Proposal on the table.

These always seem so formal and cold.

Don’t be afraid to show who you really are and what sets you apart in these situations. Use confident, industry-specific language, but use your own words. Don’t  be afraid to add some sentences that put your best foot forward – even if you weren’t specifically asked.

Breathe……..you can still be your best!

On being sick….

Every now and then, your body says …..STOP!!!!!

Listen!

Here’s what I’ve learned…….it’s better to take days off and enjoy them (you will know when to do this – if you’re tuned in)

Consider that germs are always around you….

You are only vulnerable to them when you aren’t in your zone! It kinda makes sense when you think about it!

So, trust your days on the couch….and trust your days in the boardroom. You are designed for success.

A brilliant guest post!

Recently, the Senior VP who heads my office took the women in the office out to breakfast. The topic of conversation? How to be successful as a woman in our field (healthcare/pharmaceuticals).

The whole conversation was fascinating, but what I wanted most to share with you are my SVP’s top four tips for success as a woman professional.

Always deliver – don’t compromise on quality. While perfect may be the enemy of good enough, you’ll always regret ‘not quite good enough’.

Maintain poise – no matter what’s going on for you personally or professionally, maintain poise, most especially with clients. Smile, be interested in them, focus on solving their issues. It can sometimes require compartmentalization, but when things are rocky I’m usually grateful for my ability to compartmentalize. Recently I was going through a particularly stressful time on a project, and a lot of turmoil personally as well. As I walked into a client meeting I felt ill-equipped to handle, I told myself, “No matter what happens, maintain poise.” The meeting went great, and the client said he thought I was doing a great job on the project and wanted to know when would I be managing projects independently, because he would like to work with me more in the future! I would have been proud of how I handled the interaction either way, but the positive feedback sure was nice.

Make the tough decisions sooner rather than later – whether it’s firing someone, moving on from a personal or professional relationship that has run its course, or another tough decision, it’s best for you and your happiness and everyone involved if you don’t drag the decision out. Sometimes it may seem less brutal to move slowly, but I don’t know very many people who prefer to have their bandaids torn off slowly so they can feel the pain over a longer span of time. It’s compassionate to let people move on – including yourself.

Don’t be afraid to give things a try – you might think you can’t do something well that you’ve never done before, but unless you give yourself the opportunity to try – including the space to fail, at first, and to get better over time – you’ll never have the delightful surprise that you excel at something you never imagined you would!
