BLOGHonesty and the Ostrich

by Randall CraigFiled in: Blog, Make It Happen Tipsheet, Personal DevelopmentTagged as:

From time to time, it doesn’t hurt to take a short inventory of where we stand from a success perspective – both professional and personal.  Too often, what we initially set as goals are idealistic – and unreasonable.

This week, ask yourself three questions, and make one commitment:

1) If there was one thing that I could do better, what would it be?

2) If there was one thing that I should do less of, what would it be?

3) Is there one thing that I have been putting off, that I really should do?

Here’s the commitment: don’t be an Ostrich, pretending that issues will magically go away – or that improvement will come about without taking personal responsibility for making it happen. To make a difference, whether at home or at work, it’s important to know where you stand – and honestly answering these simple questions is a great way to start.


Answer these questions, and then add the answers to your calendar and to-do list.
