PRIORITY MAIL. We all know the meaning of priority-the sense of urgency when a package or shipment must be sent by the seller and received by the buyer within an expediated time frame. Anyone who has an online business or as in my case just starting knows the trials and errors of pricing, packaging, and shipping off items. Communication is also key to establishing trust and building relationships within the global community of perspective buyers when you are competing with other sellers within the same arena.
The successful person focuses on that ‘one thing’ which will elevate him or her to achieve greatness; not just for themselves but for those around them. That ‘one thing’ places the key in the ignition, the idea starts the ignition, the motivation fuels the engine, and ‘keeping the end (goal) in mind’ provides the direction as we utilize the GPS of our personal mission statement.
Leaders speak of ideas and concepts which drives the wheels of the car down the superhighway of innovation and strategic partnership. The team must consists of passengers who don’t yell out, “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” or yell out “Slow Down.” That impatience and hesitation to change within a team environment will be a lose-lose rather than a win-win relationship.
This principle not only applies to the business or professional arena but also to Long Distance Relationships or LDRs. By sharpening the saw through communication, honesty, and integrity we can not only dream of our ‘one thing’ but we can infuse it with the living water of our passion, visualize the product of our heart-felt desire, and finally expect the impossible to become the possible.
That ‘one thing’ will manifest itself as you DIVE in to the crystal clear water; listening to that still small voice within. It’s so easy to lose our focus but when we prioritize the details, the big picture becomes clearer.
