There might be a change happening, are you aware? New commitments are often necessary and being committed will make a difference for success.
The Olympic diver needs to be committed. So does the Bob Sled team.
Business or Personal Change
Our workplaces are experiencing massive change. It is happening in businesses, K-12, and higher education.
Are commitments necessary?
Have you asked yourself or your team recently, “What are we committed to?”
Commitment creates focus and focus will always impact results. A focus on nothing, will get you nothing.
What are you committed to?
Are you committed to a revenue goal, a project milestone, or a career path?
If it is going to happen, focus will be required.
Change often develops in the workplace from both internal and external forces. The 2020 pandemic has ensured that there are some external forces putting pressure on businesses. Change is not an option.
Successful change will require a commitment.
Are you ready? Is the team?
In competitive sports or a rocket launch, there is a commitment. Part of the commitment is focused on a timed event. Once the countdown clock begins there is little chance of turning back.
There is not an opportunity to hesitate or stop. Once it is go, it’s go. All that remains is to perform.
Workplace change often fails because of a lack of commitment. It is also true for the career change or better eating habits.
Maybe it is time you ask yourself if you are committed.
You better know before the countdown clock starts.
