Welcome back to another dose of Monday Motivation's podcast No More Excuses!
I think I'm tired from everyone complaining about losing one hour of sleep with the time change on Saturday! LOL! So, what is it that I need... people to stop complaining about the petty things in life!!
I learned to pause this weekend after taking care of my Dad last week. He wasn't dying, he had DOUBLE knee replacement surgery 2 weeks ago today. It was a very long and tiring week! Although I was in charge of getting him to surgery and the hospital visits, my Sister took on the first four days home from the hospital and then I went in. As I was complaining to MY Coach, she said, "Go do what you need to do, we'll talk when you have time. Remember, it's a privilege to take care of your parents".
I stopped and took a moment to let that sink in. Yes, it was tiring and I have driven in circles for weeks, and he's sent me on wild goose chases and texted me with a list of items AFTER I asked FOUR TIMES if he needed anything, but he wasn't sick, he was just in pain, he wasn't able to do for himself like he's used to, and what he needed was me to help him without complaining. (Which, I did, I just vented to everyone else around me!!!)
So after last week of understanding why you do what you do, I'd like to know WHAT DO YOU NEED? Why do you keep coming back to listen? Why do those of you who are my clients, continue to come back to me? What more can I do for you? I've learned that I can't help you if you don't ask. And no one else can either!
So - tell me, WHAT IS IT THAT YOU NEED?
I look forward to hearing/reading your responses! Email me SBallard@GrowingForward.biz
What I need right now are 20 people to attend my Champagne lunch for women called TABOO! If you are in Indy - sign up here: http://www.punchbowl.com/parties/7cc10b3a44cdb1b6a46a
It's going to be full of conversations all businesswomen should have... but don't!
