Evaluating What’s Working and What’s Not


On this show…it’s time for a reality check as we wind it down and take a step back to evaluate what’s working and what’s not! What’s the definition of insanity? Oh yea, doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result. It’s time to take charge and get real. There’s another saying, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it but when was the last time you looked under the hood? Nope, this year we’re not leaving anything to chance but instead taking a proactive approach as we take an honest deep dive into our lives. Sometimes it’s hard to get a good perspective when you’re so close to the subject, ie – ourselves. So we’ll consult some experts, relate with some stories, pull our vantage point back to get the bigger picture and make a commitment to embrace change.

See if you relate. I’m guilty of putting my head down and barrelling toward a project or idea with just sheer will. I feel like reward and success come from hard work instead of admitting to myself, strategy plays a pretty critical role. Like diet and exercise, they go hand in hand and rarely work alone. But the strategy part can be confusing and is where self-doubt enters the picture. Push square into round hole, twist, try again, push harder – you get the picture. 

Strategy takes time, some research, evaluation, and patience but the payoff surpasses the exercise.
