I have been working on this philosophy for the last month and it is a great way to begin a day. In addition, if you write down your wins, you will start to see the results of your work efforts. It really is all about a better focus and working under the pressure of time.
Looking at things from a Win Perspective:
Talking to Clients
While talking to clients, I am actively listenting for the next opportunity. In addition, I am keeping better notes because I want to win, not just today but in the future. In addition, I need my clients to win, so if they ask for my in put, I will try and guide them in a way that helps their business too.
Client Service Team
Keep informed on a daily business of how your client service staff is doing on a daily basis. Did they experience a win today? Winning is contagious. People like to surround themselves with winners. Start acting like one and work like someone who expects to win.
Talk to your operations team and ask for their input in helping them meet their daily goals and objectives. You can learn a lot if you interact with people who are doing the work for your company.
Look for opportunities to continually measure your performance and look closely at your client activity and look for trends up or down to see where you can add improvement.
Talk to your IT resources and see where they see technology headed. Take a moment and learn how to use your own devices: smartphone, iPad, computer to better support your own decisions.
Share your experiences with other professionals too. This is huge if you want to connect with other winners on social media sites. I have been able to connect with many great people and because of this, I continue to be driven to write content that matters to these people. If you don’t have a blog, you are missing a golden opportunity to be part of a bigger winning team.
Expecting to win, puts you in the proper perspective by getting you focused. Out of this process, you set daily goals and you look for ways to grow your business. This is the exciting part of being in business. You can do this in any role you are currently in. People will see your enthusiasm and will inquire about projects you are working on. The key is to keep your wins in perspective and as I noted earlier, write them down. I prefer a composition book because they are all in one place, but that is my preference.
