Received my daily #Commentz today from Sarah Evans and as usual, got a lot out of the e-newsletter including the following list of tips:
From Sarah...last night I shared reflections from the past two weeks on lessons I learned (or re-learned).
Here they are in all their tweet-ready glory:
Those who work the hardest (and the longest) end up with more opportunities.
Always under promise and over deliver.
A good team makes all the difference.
If you wait until things are perfect, you'll never get anything done.
You can't forget to take care of yourself. (I need to remind myself of this OFTEN.)
Priorities REALLY matter. You can't always get everything done, but you better get the right
We all make mistakes. It's what we learn and how we change after that can redeem us.
Business titles shouldn't determine who receives your respect. You may end up reporting to those people someday.
When you know your values, it's easy(ier) to make big decisions. (Former mentor did great
exercise to help me w/ this.)
You don't become irrelevant if you go off-grid for 48 hours or more.
Recognize those who do an amazing job. There are many professionals who go above and beyond b/c they love their jobs.
Sometimes it truly is better to ask for forgiveness than permission.
Fun ways to reward and recognize your team via social media can really pay off. A team who tweets together, stays together???
