Keeping Your Eye on the Ball

HELLO | TWELVE, NOVEMBER 2019


Happy Friday!  Wow, it has been such a busy fall, right?!  Like head-spinning busy- for me both personally and professionally.  As we've shared, Delegate has won some pretty great awards this fall- we grabbed the #52 spot on the fastest growing companies in Philly (woot!  The Philly 100!!), and I won Small Business Person of the Year with the Philly Chamber (a high honor! for me personally!). 

 

This combined with the challenges of a growing company along with a whole bunch of big shifts in my personal life equals a lot to manage!   With all of this swirling around me, it's hard to stay focused week over week towards the game-changing work. 

 

Below are a few of the strategies I use to keep my eye on the ball:

Make a Commitment to "Good Enough"

HELLO | TWELVE, AUGUST 2019


TGIF, Happy Friday and hello from the coast of North Carolina, where a group from Team Delegate has assembled for our annual retreat. Given that we are a 100% remote, distributed team, this year's retreat is really exciting for us because we have the opportunity to spend face time with the members of our NC contingent of Delegate.

This month I've been thinking a lot about commitment.  It could be because my fiancee and I just added another dog (third!!) to our family that commitment is heavy on my mind!  Or, perhaps it's my own personal evolution of hanging in there even when things are not "perfect" because I made a commitment to do so.  Either way, honoring our commitments is not always the easy choice, but it is a mindset shift that brings with it personal growth, stability and consistency.

How to Move From Make it Up to Make it Real

HELLO | TWELVE, jULY 2019


TGIF, Happy Friday and happy Independence Day!

As Visionaries, our greatest contribution is our ability to see our companies as globally as possible. We are uniquely able to understand and prioritize the most pressing needs, and then design creative solutions to to move forward.

I don't know how this process typically works for you, but for me it's typically super-organic and instinctual. Once we identify the problem, I give myself the space to creatively think about how we might solve it. Or sometimes, I'm not even thinking about it at all, and the answer suddenly just comes to me. What a feeling, right? :)

The challenge then lies in how to take this idea and model it, build it, test it and roll it out. This is where our team can become a true complement to our abilities. I follow a simple process to make my ideas real:

How to Take a Sabbatical From Your Business

HELLO | TWELVE, jUNE 2019

TGIF, Happy Friday! I am back in the office this week, fresh off a 3 week sabbatical-- my first! It was quite detoxifying and I am happy to report it was also a success. Thanks to a lot of planning, delegation and accountability, I was able to completely step away from running my business for three whole weeks and watch it run without me... and nothing blew up! It was divinely indulgent. Want to do the same?

Below are my tips to make this happen:

Too Busy to Grow?

HELLO | TWELVE, january 2019

 

TGIF, Happy Friday welcome to a shiny new quarter! A client once said to me, "If I could spend half as much time on half as many things, I would be twice as effective." This thought while profound, is a trend we see over and over again in our work. The endless wheel-spinning of urgent but lower-value work distracts us, especially in times of growth it becomes amplified because our time is not just focused on innovating but on delivering.

How To LOVE Your Work

HELLO | TWELVE, january 2019

 

Happy Friday and February to you! It's the month of love and there's not much that can top the fulfilling feeling of doing work that inspires you. One of my favorite entrepreneurial thought leaders, Dan Sullivan of Strategic Coach® teaches that "the most successful people are those who have learned how to focus on and leverage their unique strengths. In other words, they build their lives around their abilities, not their disabilities." He began talking about his realizations as “Unique Ability®," the essence of what you love to do and naturally do best.

Let it go!

HELLO | TWELVE, january 2019

 

Happy Friday and welcome to the start of another amazing year together! 2018 will be so hard to top, but this year, I personally am focusing on "taking the time to take it in." This means extending the energy to be present, it means hyperfocusing on what I am saying yes to and being willing to say no to most everything else.
