Posted on Categories Blog

2018-in-review-what-would-you-changeAs you look back on 2018, what would you change?  Consider this question on both a personal and a professional level, and take a moment to write down at least three things for each.  We often say, “If I knew then what I know now…” – well, here’s your chance!  Do a mental review of the past year, and literally list the things you’d change if you could.

Learning

Would you have taken a class or pursued continuing education to help you perform your job more efficiently?  Perhaps you’d select a mentor at your company or in your industry, and meet with him or her on a regular basis to expand your knowledge, or simply brainstorm together.  If the thought of your commute or other downtime has you rolling your eyes, consider audiobooks or podcasts, to build some enjoyment and learning into each day.   There are even apps for your phone that will allow you to learn a language by investing a few minutes per day.

How many disruptions do you experience in a single day? Disruptors come in many forms, from a crying infant startling you awake or a coworker bursting into your office and shattering your focus, to an unexpected rant during a meeting, or even the “ding!” of each email notification. We’re taught at a young age that it’s rude to interrupt, yet we do it daily with abandon, and our society has allowed this to become the norm.

We are unable to form a connection when we cannot hear, choose not to listen, or fail to offer respect to our audience. Continue reading “Marketers: Don’t Be the Disruptor”
