TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 666 – Laugh at Yourself.

Quote: “Remember, your best is yet to come! Keep climbing!!”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Right now we’re in the middle of “Spring Rush” at the marina — what’s Spring Rush?  OMG… it’s the time between ice out and Memorial Day Weekend.

It’s this crazy time frame when people pick up their boats from the long long winter.

This winter was especially long in Minnesota.  After all, we broke the all time snowiest February on record…. so everyone just wants to get outside.

Well… there are still things that have to be done to prep a boat, there are things that have to be done to prep a marina… and there are only so many hours a day.  Therefore, when it hits 75 degrees people call and think that they can pick up their boat “today”.  I mean it’s only one boat.

They need to be gently reminded that we process 10 boats a day and there are 80 on the list before them.  Alrightie, that aside.

I thought today would be a great day to feature the advice of “keep going” so I looked up this phrase on Twitter and I was all set to use the Lyrics from Rodney Atkins… “If you’re going through hell, keep on going…”

Then I realized this is episode 666!  HAHAHAHAHA

That really made me laugh!  I got no words of inspiration.  Just KEEP GOING.

So this midweek motivation is all about the big belly laugh.

So…. Laugh at yourself and just enjoy life.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 660 – Is Your Refrigerator Running?

Quote: “Do not let yesterday’s setbacks affect today’s motivation.”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

It’s hard to get over a setback.  And by setback, I mean arriving at the store 5 minutes after it closes… or eating your ice cream cone and having it wobble off the cone to the ground.

The things that bum you out.  The things that make you go UGHHHHH and change your mood.

Guess what, if it happened yesterday, leave it yesterday.

You wake up today – it’s new!  Sometimes it’s easier than others, especially when the thing from yesterday… is like a bad soap opera that continues today – but do what you can to not let it affect you.

I’m saying this as my refrigerator STILL does not work! We’re on day 4… it started with the freezer melting everything inside… now it’s advanced to the fridge.  And if you’ve followed me for a while, you know how I like ice cold Diet Pepsi.

It’s crazy, but don’t let it affect today.

The repair has been ordered, the parts will arrive, and in a month it won’t matter. Therefore, you can’t let the setback affect today.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 654 – You Can.

Quote: “This is the Beginning of ANYTHING you want.”

Wednesday:  Midweek Motivation

 

Today’s inspiration is powerful!  We have the ability to do or become anything we want… it’s just that you have to recognize it’s the start, right now!

I like to say, “You thought of it… it has to happen.” — and it’s true.  Once you think it, the vision is created and now it’s just the hard work of making it happen.

It might seem overly simplified to come up with the strategic “how to’s” or list building skills… I mean the actual belief you can do it.

About a week ago my cousin came over for dinner… his daughter, all of 14, mentioned she really wanted a Range Rover.  Good taste in cars!  And her mom said, “yeah that’s not going to happen.”

Not even missing a beat, I said, “NO…. you already thought it, it has to happen” and the daughter looked at me with curiosity wanting to know more… my sister said, “Good luck paying for that” as she smirked toward my cousin…

I said, no… “she can pay for it. She already thought it, it CAN happen.”

It really is this simple.  I mean… you want a million dollars, it’s only a process of selling something that generates $25 to 40,000 people.  Do the math… that’s not a lot of people.  In Minneapolis there are over 382,000…

So a Range Rover… they are around $100,000 new… Sell something that generates $25.00 to 4,000 people…

REALLY the math is that simple.  Notice I said math.  I did not say the “doing” but don’t kill someone else’s dream regardless of how young they are.  The Range Rover to a 14 year old might seem irrelevant… but she thought it. That means it can happen.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 648 – Pick One!

Quote: “Clutter is nothing more than postponed decisions”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

Make a decision.  Just make a decision.

When you feel frozen you’ve got to dig deep and decide.  It’s going to sound trite but a non-decision is actually a decision.

When you feel paralyzed and can’t “see up” – you can stop, analyze, and make a decision – but honestly it’s not that easy – I say… just make one.

Trust me, nothing is so dramatic that one decision on your desk will change your direction… OR will it… if you make that decision you set the wheels in motion for more change!

BUT you are in control.

I’ve had a rough week.  It’s spring which means it’s CRAZY.  While lots of people are excited over the nice warm weather – I’m on a time crunch…. we have a family marina and I’m hiring AND signing contracts for new customers.

The time is now for me.

In 6 weeks it’s too late we’ll be in the full swing of summer… so I’ve got to make decisions right now.   Here’s your take away from my situation.  In 6 weeks it’s too late.  I’ve got a BIG time deadline – but my desk is a disaster full of post-it notes.

Honestly, it doesn’t matter which comes first, there’s no prioritizing – it’s all a “do it now” situation – so just jump in and pick one.

And that’s what I’ll share with you.  Come up with your one deadline the “it’s too late after this date” and just “pick one”

As soon as you get momentum – the rest falls in place.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 642 – Don’t Stop!

Quote: “If you’re not growing, you’re stagnant.”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

Ever had a lazy day?  One where you simply did not want to do anything… sure!  We all have those days.

Then you turn on the TV and you see some amazing sports finish.  Maybe it was Tiger Woods winning the Masters, or the Marine with leg cramps that crawled across the finish line of the Boston Marathon.   Both kept going.

Now… It’s not that they’ve ever had a lazy day.

But this is something to think about — when you have a lazy day, meaning you’re “stagnant” you are not only not gaining ground – BUT… think about this… you are actually losing ground because someone else is moving forward!

I don’t want to stress you out — but let’s think about this… there are three people — the person in first is 5 steps ahead of you and the person behind you is one step away… if you stop and everyone goes forward – the person behind you is now even and the person in front of you gained a step!

OMG.

Don’t stop AND change your mind set to “If you’re not growing you’re actually going backward”

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 536 – Turn “Get It” Into “Get It Done”

Quote: “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Today it’s time do just get it done!  The best way to do this is to take action and make it happen.

Sure that sounds easy – but is that the best course of action…  I’m going to argue and say “not really” – taking action to take action is unproductive and often leaves to spinning in circles.

If you stop and take time to do a little planning, guess what… you’re still taking action.  Sweet!  How does that sound?!  Pretty awesome.

Don’t get sucked into permanent planning – and I think this is what today’s inspiration is warning against.  That moment when you all of a sudden become afraid to do anything.

I’ll be honest – I’m experiencing this right now… I need to “upload” a welcome profile – it sounds like an easy task, but honestly it’s become difficult.  I’ve heard that when something seemingly easy becomes difficult you’re assigning an unrealistic level of importance to it.

So let’s evaluate – you can’t take action and you are stuck in planning or preparing mode… when this happens, ask yourself WHY.

Again, most likely you’ll discover that you are attaching a high level of importance. When you use this little trick to discover your issue, it becomes much easier to just “get it done”.  The task might have significance, then again, maybe it really doesn’t?

Get it?

Turn that “get it” into “get it done”!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 630 – Keep Going… It’s a Great Way to Learn Patience.

Quote “Delay Is Not Defeat…”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Ahhhh the ultimate test of patience is understanding that Delay is not Defeat.  Often I have to remind myself of this small, quick, little, phrase when things just don’t seem to be moving fast enough!

You know those days… the days you feel like the cartoon character running from the anvil that’s about to hit you in the head but you’re stuck running in place.

OH this is how I felt yesterday.

I was trying to get in contact with our tech support for our new website… you see it’s our scheduling site for pontoon rentals.  Well, they updated the pricing but forgot to update the calendar for July.

Therefore, I had people making reservations for July 4 on Wednesday instead of July 4 which is really on Thursday!  UGHHH.  It’s one of those moments you just get to wait.  “patiently”.  There’s nothing you can do… you know you have a problem, you know it will be solved, it’s not a defeat… it’s just a delay.

So hang in there!
