2011: The Year of Choice

This is your opportunity to make 2011 the Year of Choice.
One principle I’ve learnt over the years is this:
EVERYTHING in life will be managed.
If I don’t manage something then there are hundreds & thousands of people/things that will manage it for me.
If I don’t cut my lawn , the City of Calgary will eventually cut it for me (at the small fee of $250)
If I don’t manage my budget, my bank will offer to “tide me over” with the credit card they sent me. (at 28 percent interest)
If I don’t manage the use of my time, the great news is there are a multitude of people out there who will. (I’ll meet their goals, not necessarily mine)
The lesson is that many of us are paying a heavy emotional & financial price for not addressing the choices we need to make in life.
The beginning of a New Year represents an awesome opportunity to starting making choices in those areas of our job/life that remain unresolved. It is our chance to manage something positively before it will be managed by someone else at a high cost.
From a leadership perspective I’ve narrowed it down to 5 choices we all need to make to become effective leaders. Stay tuned for much more information on my book “A Game of Choice: 5 Choices to Effective Leadership” and the workshop that follows.
Happy New Year! I wish all of you every success in 2011.
