Monday Monday

As I sat in my air conditioned office (thank goodness for air conditioning) I reviewed what I did last week. Then I set up my plan for the day. I only had 3.5 hours to work on my activities, and I wanted to get the most bang for my buck. At the end of my 3.5 hours I was not sure if I had done enough so I took a moment to reflect. What did I get done?

  • I made 20 calls (cold and warm).
  • I actually had four meaningful conversations that gave me two qualified "no's," one qualified future and an appointment.
  • I wrote and mailed two letters to follow-up on networking meetings.
  • I finalized a document I needed for Toastmasters and made copies.
  • I organized my schedule for the week.
  • I sent out several emails and printed some articles to read.

Although that might not seem like a lot to some, for me it was a huge accomplishment. What does this all represent? The continuation of my behavior that I defined in my cookbook last week. I am seeing that as I behave each day and do that consistently, I am seeing results. So I am thrilled for the day and my activities and see it as a step in my gradual and incremental growth. Have you looked at your daily activities lately?
