What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is stretching yourself. I am not talking about the physical stretching of your muscles, I am talking about stretching your mind, stretching your spirit.
Last week I had a conversation with some friends of mine and they talked about big hairy audacious goals.
One of my friends said, “the next thing I want to do is figure out how to make a million dollars in a month.” I was like, what? I don’t even know how to think like that. That thought would have never occurred to me because I have limited beliefs. I have an upper-limit problem.
It was just great to hear this person say that to the group, say it out loud, and this person is a big thinker and a big doer. If anybody can do it, I’m sure she can. It was just really cool to hear and it just got me thinking about how I think about my life and what I can accomplish.
What I want to know from you guys is what is your big hairy audacious goal. What do you want to do that you have never even thought about doing in the past? What can you put in the comments? What can you share with the rest of the group so that we know what your big hairy audacious goal is?
Even if you only get to 10% or 1% of that goal, guess what? That is still an amazing feat. Stretch yourself! That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill.
Please make sure that you like and you share, and continue to follow. Thank you, and I’ll see y’all next week.
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill, the first one of 2023. Today’s topic of conversation is about setting goals. I know it’s incredibly cliche for the beginning of the year, you often hear people say let’s set some goals, let’s write some stuff down and then we fail to ever look at them again.
For me, I have worked hard over the last couple of weeks thinking about my goals for the upcoming year, I have divided them up into personal goals, health goals, financial goals, work-related goals, and even fun goals like travel. This has been an important journey for me specifically because I understand that in order to have the year that I want to have in 2023, I need to be very intentional about the things that must get done in order to achieve the results.
I have been listing out my goals and I’ve been identifying the HOWs. If you’ve seen some of my TMDs related to setting quarterly goals, you’ve probably seen this before, but asking the question, how am I going to do this? How is that going to get done? And then how is that next thing going to get done over and over and over again, three to five times in order to ensure that I clearly understand exactly what it’s going to take for me to get to the goal.
I have also been setting aside time on my calendar, intentionally blocking time so that I can do the things that I need to do for my health, my mental well-being, my work, my fun, and my personal life.
I am going to encourage you to do the same thing. Take some time, sit down, think about what’s important to you in your life, and set aside the time necessary in order to ensure the things that need to get done to achieve the goals, get done.
It’s a worthwhile exercise. Make sure you do it. It’s all about setting and achieving goals in 2023. That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. Looking forward to an amazing year with y’all.
Have a great week and I will talk to y’all next week.
In this week’s TMD I am coming to you from Pensacola Beach, Florida. Since I am taping on New Year’s Day, today’s topic of conversation is about setting 2022 goals.
Clarity Equals Success!
I have to admit that I am not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. I am a big fan of setting written goals.
The way we like to do it at Kaizo and Kaizenovate is to set the goal, the big audacious goal, and break it down into quarterly rocks. So, every 90 days we build towards that goal we want to achieve for the year.
Within those 90-day rocks ask three to five HOWs. For instance, if we want to increase our new patients at Kaizo by 20%, howare we going to do that? The answer may be, I am going to build a sales and marketing strategy. And howare you going to do that? I am going to set up a meeting with my team and ask everybody to bring their best three ideas to build the sales and marketing strategy to increase new patients by 20%.
I just asked HOW a few times but you can drill even deeper. When your team gets together and you set your goals for 2022, make sure that you ask them, they ask themselves, and you ask yourself the three to five HOWs. When you do that, you will get very clear on howyou are going to accomplish a goal. Clarity equals success!
It’s going to be a great year!
