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?
