The Power of Mentorship

We all have that one person in our professional lives that truly changed the way our career was headed for the better. This person, a mentor, is the most valuable resource you’ll ever have.

Whether it’s the boss that takes you under their wing and helps develop you to the next level, or the seasoned coworker that helps you to become the best version of yourself every day, we’ve all had one. This person is also the person at work you know will always be there for you when you’re in over your head, or just not understanding what is going on, they’re always there to help you through.

Finding this mentor can be an incredible tool in your career success as being taken under the wing of an experienced professional can truly impact not only what you learn, but the connections you’re able to make as you move further down the road in your career.

Your mentor may not even be at your current job, it may be somebody from a previous job, or externally someone you know within the industry that is there to help you succeed when you need a hand.

It’s Not About Ideas, It’s About Making Ideas Happen

With everyone these days worrying about coming up with “the latest thing”, ideas are a dime a dozen.  Everyone has brilliant ideas, but having an idea alone doesn’t do much.  The key step in creating something new isn’t to merely come up with the idea, but also to execute on these ideas.  Making ideas happen is what matters.

Let’s go into next week after a relaxing weekend off, focused on not the idea but the execution and see where it takes us in the next week.

Until Next Time,

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

You’re only as strong as the team you play with, it’s that simple no matter what the circumstances are.

Working to woo that latest client?  Trying to win that provincial or state championship ring?  Trying to achieve that latest sales quota?

No matter the situation you find yourself in, you’re only as strong as the team by your side.   There’s a reason that wolves don’t travel alone, they travel in packs because they know they stand stronger as a team.  When they work together they possess the power to overcome any obstacle that may come their way.

When you work as a part of a strong team professionally you possess the power to get past any obstacles that may impede you from realizing your goal.  If you want to achieve greatness, you need a strong team by your side.   The most successful people in our history have found the potential within individuals and harness this ability to further their efforts.

Don’t try to be a soldier running into battle alone, find your army and keep them by your side as you proceed to battle and overcome anything that comes your way!

Get Off Your Butt & Get Going

Lately more than ever in this digital age of distractions I’ve found that procrastination is becoming a bigger and bigger problem. I don’t believe I’m the only person noticing this problem, so this is something I want to touch on.

I don’t notice this problem solely in business either. This issue seems to apply to not only your work life, but also your personal life. For example, in my free time I find great pleasure in coaching a kids sports team, and in these kids I see a definite difference in the level of distraction now vs back when I was playing sports as a child. With the digital age of games and digital media, the kids seem to be constantly engulfed in this world and it becomes more and more difficult to maintain their attention for the task at hand. I see this constantly in business too, people are constantly talking about media trends and the latest big thing, showing that they are fully engulfed in these distractions and becoming less and less able to focus on the current task at hand.

We will continue on this topic later, but I would love to hear some comments about the readers opinions on this issue.

Until next time,
