You are the boss of you – whether you like it or not.
I know, it can suck sometimes. Nobody else to blame, having to take responsibility for your own results, holding yourself accountable. Hard work some days. The good news is that because you are the boss of you, it’s within your control to set the rules, reward yourself and decide on the direction you want to take.
If you think of your life – how you show up in the world – as your job, how would you rate your performance?
Outstanding? Fair? Needs improvement?
Ask yourself these basic management questions:
What time do you expect yourself to show up to your day?
What behaviors does your boss (you) expect of you?
What are the consequences if you fall foul of those standards? (Because we know behavior is a function of consequence.)
What reward does the boss give you for great achievements?
How does your boss expect you to interact with others?
Write a job description for the role of YOU
How would you stack up against this job description?
Would you hire you?
What training or changes in behavior do you need?
After all, let’s face it, you’ve got the job whether you like it or not – now it’s just about making sure you have the right skills to do an outstanding job.
And, of course, on the other side of the pancake -
What kind of boss are you?
If you are the boss of you – are you a boss you’d want? What kind of boss are you?
One who rewards achievement or continually tells you how you are lacking?
One who sets clear and realistic goals or just gives vague direction?
One who reviews performance and gives feedback on a regular basis or waits until it’s too late to make much change?
One who shows empathy and compassion or drives without consideration of what’s going on?
One who motivates and inspires or makes you repeatedly do the tasks that make you lose the will to live?
What do you need to change about the way you boss yourself or how you show up to the work of your life each and every day?
Stay outstanding, be the best boss you can be and do what it takes to get that promotion to the next level of life!
