Right now I am flying high. Literally flying at 33,000 feet – probably somewhere over Indiana. I’m on my way to work with Alice Kemper, my Sharpenz.com partner, for the rest of the week. (For those of you who have used Sharpenz – we’ll have three new boosters ready-to-go next week!)
I’m chuckling because the last post was about You Won’t Get if You Don’t Ask – well I asked the flight attendant the cost of wifi on the airplane – not because I really wanted to use it, just because I was curious. She told me that she wasn’t sure but that I should go to the site because you can sometimes try it free.
Well, the Go Go site was more than Try it Free – they had a game you could play to earn free wifi for the duration of the flight. I tried it and won! How cool is that?
So now today I am feeling lucky, confident and like a winner. How will that translate to my success today? I believe it will translate into energy and productivity leading to success.
If you aren’t flying high today like I am, how can you get your energy and confidence up? A few things come to mind:
1. Do the thing you are dreading the most for today. Tackle it head on and get it out of the way. The rest will seem easier.
2. Review your goals – what are you working toward? What progress have you made? Take one full minute to think and feel that progress. Doesn’t it feel good? Don’t beat yourself up over what you have left to do – acknowledge what you have done.
3. Contact someone you have been meaning to. You know who the person is – just pick up the phone or send an email NOW! They’ll be glad to hear from you. It’s amazing how much connection we need as people. Don’t want it to be work related? That’s okay! Amanda shared with me that she found someone she had completely forgotten about on Facebook – they now have reconnected and she is so grateful.
Sometimes the little actions we take early in the morning can give us that boost of energy and confidence that will keep us ‘flying’ a winner all day!
p.s. For someone like who bemoans the speed of new technology, I’m loving it today!
