What would happen if you asked this question instead….

May 17, 2012

Something new pops up for you – be it a new client, a new idea or project – and what is the first thing you usually ask yourself?

If you are anything like me it is probably something like:

How will I find the time to do this?

And then for many of you the answer becomes “I can’t find the time, I’m already too busy… ” and so you feel like you can’t move forward, you are stuck and probably frustrated.

Next time something new comes up, ask yourself this question instead:

Who can I get to do this for me?


Now I’m not going to take credit for this, as I heard someone speak about this at the GKIC Women’s Conference I spoke at in February. (But for the life of me I can’t remember who said it! It just really stuck with me…)

But I’m curious what comes up for you – how does this shift or change an opportunity in this business when you ask this question vs. the one above?

  • What does it mean you can do more of?
  • What can you do less of?
  • What doors does it open for you?
  • What projects that have been on your to-do list can now come off your plate and get moving?

Would love to hear your thoughts – be sure to post them here, k?

    Wow.  Oh.my.goodness.  Talk about a shift in paradigms.   I can see why this one stayed with you!  What a great way to think about it.
