Ready, Set, Execute!

October 1, 2014 / Leadership / 1 Comment

You have a great idea you want to get out there  …. but …..

Have you ever said this?

“I’m so ticked off! I never seem to have time to get this thing off the ground.”

My long time client said this to me just yesterday. Her frustration sounded something like this: ‘I am constantly overwhelmed and putting my time and energy into keeping a broken system going. I know I need to fix the system. But I never seem to get out from under the overwhelm enough to work on fixing the system! I’m so frustrated!’

Have you ever felt that way? Have you ever had the situation of knowing that [your idea] is brilliant (this book, this menu, this innovation in existing technology), and you’ve explored it, gotten feedback, you’re excited. Now you’ve got to execute. But, you’re not sure how to get off the hamster wheel.

Perhaps it’s time to ask for help.


Have you asked for help? Asked for someone to take over doing something you normally do – so that you have time and energy to do the things that will REALLY move the dial in your project – REALLY accelerate your business growth?

Ask for help in areas you might not have considered asking before!

What are some places you might ask for help that will give you unexpected time and resources?

  1. think of what you are great at and…..
  2. what you are not so great at (or simply hate to do)

Do more of 1. and ask for help with 2.

You might offer a trade! You might barter or actually pay someone for help.

First – take stock, careful stock, of what you really are spending your time and energy on in a typical day, week or month.  Really look at it. Keep a log. You’ll be surprised at how much time and energy you have available to finally execute that big idea that will not just move you forward a little – but catapult you into exceptional results.

One of the key things exceptional leaders do is allocate the time and energy to the RIGHT things.

Exceptional leadership is the key to getting exceptional results.

And have a great day!

ready, set, execute!

To your continued amazingness……

    Truth be told, I'm terrible at asking for help. In actual fact, the more I do it the more I am amazed that it gets easier. It takes some creativity, mostly to think of or look at ways that never occurred to me to ask for help in before. Looking at where I spend my time is definitely key.
