When I was engulfed in leading coaching teleclasses a couple of years ago, the discussion of environmental coaching started taking on some legs. This is the idea that you can change your surroundings – and not just how you organize your desk… but serious changes such as:
– who you associate with (positve people, or really “bummers”?)
– what you read and listen to (noise, or professional development?)
– where you go (anywhere, or planned special excursions?)
– what you say to yourself (supportive or destructive?)
Now is the time…. June 1st – to jot down a few things about your business world – what is working, and what isn’t? if things aren’t working, try to think about why. To do this, I like to break things down into components. You say enough sales didn’t happen. Great. Don’t beat yourself up – think about how you worked, what you did, where you spent your time. Come up with an idea or theory on what happened and how you can enhance that by 10 times this month – or prepare for a much more successful 3rd quarter.
What we all need to remember is that we are moving forward. What we do today can be totally different than yesterday. Choose today as the day you plan this wonderful business environment that supports you and helps you to thrive.
