A sense of momentum

| Video

It's the Monday update! Last week was pretty difficult for me, both personally and professionally, but I also feel accomplished because when problems came up, we had solutions, we implemented those solutions, and they worked.

When you're running a company, some things get checked off your to-do list every day, but there are a lot of things that are just endless ongoing tasks. As a consistent planner, I've realized that my listmaking tends to focus on granular tasks, but I want to start focusing more on big goals for my company to give us a sense of momentum. My intention for this week is to think more about how to communicate and track broad goals so things don't feel so open-ended. I'm also trying to look for more speaking opportunities. So far this year I've done 25 speaking engagements, and while I don't want to keep up that rate, I do want to engage in coaching and training regularly because it brings me a ton of joy.

What's your intention for the week? Put it in the box below, and don't forget to eat lunch!
