Happy June! We're so glad you're here.
To support you in being F.I.R.S.T. (Future-Ready . Innovative. Relevant. Strategic. Trusted), here's 1 tip, 1 question and 1 quote.
1. The F.I.R.S.T. Tip
'Did you get a chance to go through your new website, sir?' The tech guy who takes care of all of our Influence Solutions' websites, profiling tools and online learning portal for the past decade, asks.
'Yes.' I respond. There are a couple of things that can be done to enhance user experience, which I will email you. Overall, your team has done a really good job. Thanks a lot.'
'You're welcome, sir. The team will be happy to hear that.' I hear him beaming. 'And I will let you know as soon as I have addressed the points in your email. After that can I make the site live?'
'You can make it live right away.' I tell him.
'But...' He sounds a bit confused. 'What about the kinks you mentioned?
'They are minor issues. Don't let them hold us up.'
'Really?' He sounds surprised. 'I suggest we clear those first...so that the site is perfect.'
'Dude, nothing in life is perfect. No matter what we do, there will always be some kinks to iron out.' I elaborate. 'So, go ahead...make the site live and we will keep enhancing it as we go along.'
Tip: The website is like life. It will always be work in progress. We can learn, grow and enhance along the way. Don't let the pursuit for perfection hold you back from taking action. The best time is NOW.
2. The F.I.R.S.T. Question
A director shared how she gives so much empathy to her clients and team that she is spent at the end of the day and reaches home tired, with little patience for her loved ones.
I am sure this sounds familiar.
Very often we give so much of ourselves to the people we work with that we don't have enough left for the ones in our personal lives.
Our question is - Who do you give your best self to?
Are you ensuring your best is available for the people who matter most in your life? (I mean, do remember that changing a boss is usually easier than chaging a spouse or kid. #JustSaying)
How would you like to have positive interactions with everyone you meet?
Here's the good news.
All we need is a little mindfulness....
To bring our our best selves, especially to the people that matter to us most.
