I received a note from someone who had read my book and particularly liked the section on Results Oriented Responses (RORs).
I gotta tell you, this is my favorite part of the book and the tool that I think has a HUGE potential for making a big difference. So at the risk of ticking off my publisher, I am going to share the ROR Cheat Sheet with you here today.
Here´s how to use it:
1. Think of an area of your life that is not where you want it to be.
2. With that project/goal/expectation in mind, go through the ROR Cheat Sheet. Ask yourself for each pair:
"Regarding this project/goal/expectation, in the last two-weeks, have I been more ___(ROR) or ____(LRR)." So for the first set of terms, it would be, "In the last two weeks, have I been more of an owner or a custodian?"??
Do this all the way down the form. Circle the term on the left or right as you go down.
3. If you have been honest with yourself, you will have circled something on the right hand side of the form and that´s where you can look to get things rolling again!
4. If you are not sure how to rate yourself, ask a trusted friend or peer to help you through the form.
And that´s it. The ROR Cheat Sheet works for most situations and I use it all the time. You can have your teenage and young adult children use it too. Give it a try and tell me what you think. You can download the ROR Cheat Sheet in WORD format from my website here. RORs form the theoretical backdrop for my book.
I have a link to a PDF version here.
