Business Advice

What have you done today to make you feel proud?

What actions have you taken to progress your project strategy, your business development or your own learning?

Does everything that you do result in a concrete advance in any of the above?

And, if not, why not?

I keep asking myself this question, challenging everything that I do on an hourly basis. How do my actions contribute to the business objectives? What action should I be taking to progress plans and strategies or turn out immaculate deliverables?

Sometimes, if what I’m doing isn’t resulting in any concrete advance, the reasons for this are simultaneously fascinating and illuminating.

But when I’m able to confidently answer the question, it’s an awesome affirmation that I’m on the right path. And provides a great record of achievement as well.

So, please share – what have you done today to make you feel proud?
