Working smarter doesnâ€™t necessarily mean focusing exclusively on â€œdoing the work.â€ Working hard is important, but there are other critical things you should consider and implement to truly make an impact in your community, your business, and your industry.
Today, Iâ€™m going to share the top 5 ways that many of the high-level, successful entrepreneurs and thought-leaders that I have worked with over the years have shared with me.
Ask yourself where you are in your genius zone.
5 Ways to Work Smarter in 2017:
- Leverage your competitive advantage â€“ Identify and understand what your competitive advantage is â€“ then leverage it as much as you can with great intention.
- Mediocre strategy, brilliant execution â€“ Focus less on the strategy and more on the execution.
- Embrace today Â- The hunger to succeed is a good thing â€“ it keeps you motivated to move forward, but itâ€™s also important to remember that itâ€™s okay to embrace the present. View todayâ€™s challenges as gifts and the gateway to reaching your next level of success.
- Develop your delivery system â€“ Hard work is critical, but it also gets you more hard work. Your delivery mechanism is the basis of building up your pre-eminence and influence within your industry.
- Be Courageous â€“ When you hold back information or an idea from other people, youâ€™re being selfish. When you operate from a place of confidence and courage, you will work much smarter.
My Challenge to You:
- Ask yourself: What are you doing that feels easy for you; that is fun for you to do and you can do quickly? What are you good at that people keep asking you about?
- Stay focused on decent strategies, but move quickly into acting and executing on those strategies.
- Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
- Donâ€™t just keep your nose buried in doing the work. Work on building your delivery system.
- Be courageous and share your ideas.
