I’m now about 3 weeks in to my daily work week takeaways and, with the exception of 1 or 2, I’ve delivered a daily takeaway at the end of each of my normal working days. I do this for two reasons:
- To help me reflect on things that have influenced me during the course of that day.
- To help others get an insight into my thought processes and to hopefully help them when they encounter similar situations during the course of their working day.
It has taken a huge amount of self-belief to be able to put these things down in writing and even more to broadcast them to the World Wide Web, but believing that what I am saying will help others has been the driving force behind making this decision.
Today I was asked the question, “where do you post these insights?” The question actually hurt at first, because I chose my selected audience fairly carefully and they hadn’t seen it, but in true Terry fashion I listened to what they had to say and acted upon it. At the end of the conversation this business contact, and close friend of mine, uttered these two words, “do it”
Think about that for a moment! There is a MASSIVE sports brand out there that’s added a third word to this, patented it, and made a fortune out of it.
Now I’m pretty certain that this wan’t subliminally on their mind when they uttered those words, however the sentiment behind those words are the reason why today’s post is going out to a much wider audience. One I neglected through the fear and trepidation of not being able to portrait to them correctly about who I really am. This wonderful being actually gave me the power of conviction today to state that:
“I am a trusted advisor, I do help people in areas beyond my own core areas of expertise and I always deliver on my promises.”
So to all of you reading this if you believe that what you are doing is really making a difference then “do it!” and more importantly keep doing it.
And to my dear friend this is me following your advise and delivering on my promise to you.
