The Number 1 Reason You’ll Go Off Track

Dutch agenda

I headed for the airport. I kicked myself in the ass as I went. I didn’t accomplish what I intended to at the conference.

There were several people I intended on connecting with. Relationships I wanted to build. I didn’t connect with any of them. 

A wasted trip. 

I could have put time on calendars, setup appointments. I could have written specific goals before going. 

I didn’t. 

I just showed up. The conference had a set agenda that took two full days.   No room for my plans. Without setting my own agenda I was swept into theirs. 

The only way you’ll stay on track is put yourself on a track to start.
  • What needs to go on today’s  To-Do list?
  • What do you need to ask someone else for?
  • Why is this important?
  • What’s the point of spending the energy?
  • What result will it contribute to?

Set your own agenda or someone else will.
