In the last couple weeks, for example,
- I gave us 8 questions to ask about the year ahead.
- I suggested 8 ways to finish the year.
- I wrote about my 3 words for the next year.
And now I’m in the future. I’m back in the office. People keep wanting to talk. I’m a little hungry. I think I want a snack. I know I’m supposed to be working on product, but it’s easy to get caught in spinning my wheels.
Those profound 3 words I had – “attuned, Jamaica, product” – are quickly becoming merely nice words.
That’s why I said one day last week,
“Your schedule is what you think you should do. Your life is what you did.”
It’s time to make the little choices, the small steps, the actual pieces of doing that will change lives, including mine.
So, is your first day back at work feeling effective?
