This past year was one of learning for me and I don’t want to forget it’s many lessons! Here are just 3 things I don’t want to forget about 2007:1) It’s never to late to just jump in: I’ve heard this over and over this year. Just start where you are. You can begin in the middle. We’re all in Beta. Everyone had their first time.
2) The only one standing in my way is me: I just have to remember to ask for help. This year I’ve learned more than ever to delegate and if I actually step back and let people do their job, they’ll do a better job than I would. People want to help. It’s hard to let go, but the results can multiply.
3) Time away helps to give better perspective: The last few years I’ve really be investing in the business and trying to get all the pieces in place to help it grow. That meant I hadn’t taken a vacation in a while. My boardroom group helped me to realize a little space is a good thing and hoping on a plane to London gave me a whole different perspective. So much so that I took off in April and May to Chicago.
More end of the reflections to come… what do you want to make sure you remember about 2007??
