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:

In Search of More Time

LEARN | TWELVE, JULY 2019 

Time. It can be your best friend or it can be your worst enemy, it’s all a matter of how you look at it.I’ve often found myself struggling to find the time to get things, both professional and personal, done. At some point or another, we’ve all said to ourselves “if only there was more time in a day.” Well, I have some good news for you, sadly it’s not that I’ve found a way to magically add more hours to our days, but I have implemented the idea of time blocking into my personal and professional life and guess what?! IT REALLY WORKS!!

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:

Finding the Still Water

LEARN | TWELVE, JUNE 2019 

 

I recently listened to a lecture about turmoil in life. We all have it. We all hate it.

The person giving the lecture walked into the room with a glass of water. He proceeded to shake the water in a circular motion within the glass explaining that this is how most of us feel - how most of our brains are functioning right now. Constantly thinking…constantly juggling a million priorities…. constantly adding to our lengthy list of what’s next and all of the things we have to do to get there.

This constant stress can be felt both personally and professionally. “I’m one big sale from stability in my life” OR “I just need help in these areas to achieve my goals” OR “If my children would only listen to THIS, things would be so much easier!”.

LEARN | TWELVE, MAY 2019 

As an entrepreneur, you’re at a higher risk of burnout than almost any other group, especially as a solopreneur. Studies have shown that burnout in entrepreneurs is more likely to show up in the body than in the job.

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.

Time Blocking Strategy

LEARN | TWELVE, APRIL 2019 

You know the what and the how, but do you know the when?

Like most professionals, you’re probably a planner.  You have your “to do” lists and your carefully laid out directions on what to do and how to do it.  But do you plan when to do those things?  If not, you may often find yourself jumping from task to task, maybe feeling a little overwhelmed by your “to do” lists and not getting as much accomplished in a day as you’d originally intended.  Have no fear, time blocking is here to help! Elon Musk does it, so does Bill Gates, you’ll be in good company!
