Those are a few of the many things I plan to "put on" this very important week in my life. As I prepared for this week, it occurred to me that the experience I want to have this week is not unique to this week. Whether or not I have a meeting on Park Avenue, I want to experience fulfillment, triumph and peace.
What can I do to bring that about in my life regardless the circumstance?
Reflection and Refocus.
I can reflect on what I want to experience and refocus my energy to manifest it. My relationship with excellence is healthy and vibrant. I have found a way to bring my "A" game to my daily life and it is paying dividends. Yes I am so stoked for my big days but they are really not that different from my every day.
Your "A" game is not just reserved for big meetings or significant family events. Whatever it is that you want to experience on the most important days, can be harnessed and manifested every day.
Now I get how that sounds and you may be asking - if you use your "A" game everyday, then what do you pull out for the huge events? Your "A"game.
Excellence is not something that can be dusted off and used "as necessary." In my experience, your best game is the one you practice often. So if you need your "A" game for that big meeting next month on Park Avenue - you'd better start using it today.
Bring your "A" game to the soccer field when you take your kids for their games.
Bring your "A" game to the weekly status call.
Bring your "A" game to your morning greeting with your spouse or significant other.
Bring your "A" game to the next conversation with your parents.
Excellence must be practiced on the regular or it will not show up when you "need" it.
What is your relationship with excellence? How can you make it better?
