Manufacture Your Day by REALLY GOING PLACES

 In Manufacture Your Day

If you know me, you know that I like sport analogies. 

I like to ride my road bike, and I have started to realize that even  if I ride painfully slow uphill, I will still pass anyone who decides to push the bike up the hill. 

I don’t like to push people and I don’t like to push my bike. 

In order to get better, faster and further, it can serve us well when we a) stop for a little while, b) think and c) develop a strategy. 

Just recently I said to my husband, “I don’t understand why I don’t get faster on the bike even though I work out 6 times a week.” His answer, “If you want to become a faster cyclist, you have to ride your bike more often than twice a week. Going to the gym, swimming and running won’t help you to become faster on the bike. It’s as simple as that.” 

Why do I tell you this? 

If you would like to improve one of your hard skills (specific knowledge required for a job) or soft kills (i.e. communication, leadership, positive attitude, constructive thinking, decision making, team work, work ethic), please consider this: 

  • have a goal – what results do you want to achieve and why? 
  • develop a growth mindset 
  • be willing to go all in and work at it
  • have a positive attitude 
  • acknowledge your progress
  • accept bad days as part of the process
  • surround yourself with positive and supportive people 

Don’t whine about why it doesn’t work.

Think about how you can make it work. Practice makes perfect.
