Rolling Up My Sleeves


Today is the day I roll up my sleeves and get down to business.

Left to my own devices, I would roll around in feeling disoriented and out of sorts indefinitely. (I say more about that in this post.)

But, I run a business. Others are depending on me. My clients, my team, my family. So, today I pull on my boots and get down to it.

What does that look like?

1) A very long brain dump of everything I need to do, want to do, have ever thought about doing.

2) A sorted out list of tasks others are waiting for me to complete.

3) Completing commitments I have made to myself and to others (like writing this blog post).

4) Getting out a calendar and plotting the next 30, 60 and 90 days – first with just myself and my family and then with my team.

5) Taking the list from activity #1 and pulling out the most exciting (to me) and most relevant (to the tribe) offerings and map out an execution plan.

That isn’t all of it but it is a start.

As you can see, there is nothing earth-shattering or magical or super secret about any of it. In fact, it’s pretty mechanical. See, that’s the thing though. Getting down to work IS mechanical and it is about execution. There are exciting moments to be sure, but in the end, I’ve got to put one foot in front of the other and do what needs to be done.

So I’m off to work!

What about you? What does getting down to business look like in your world?
