A 'Working' Day Off
When the school year first begins, teachers have Professional Development Days. In theory, this gives everyone a chance to improve; to sharpen their saw.
Why not us?
As I started to look ahead at my business future and stepping back into Aspire For, a suggestion was made to me that I build some days in my calendar where the phone and email are shut off. Instead, I take the time to create content and/or improve skills.
So that is what I am going to do.
The more I think about this idea, the more excited I get. My plan is to set aside one day a week - one day where I am unavailable until 4 o’clock or so at which time I will return calls.
To call it a day off would be inaccurate, for I will be working. I will be sharpening my saw.
How does this apply to you? Well, you likely don’t have the flexibility to set aside one day a week, but what about one day a month? Who’s really going to miss you, especially if you changed your outgoing voicemail message so that people understand that you are available in case of an emergency and that they will hear back from you before the end of the day?
As the fabulous Kelly Mallozzi says, if you keep doing what you’re doing you will keep getting what you’re getting. For me, it’s not that I’m unhappy with what I am getting, it’s just that I want more. I want different. I want better. For me and for my customers.
I hope you will see better content from me. Better blogs and better video sales tips (which will be upgraded immediately, thanks to the new lights and green screen in my office). New and better training programs, too.
And all because I am taking a Personal Development Day.
