How hard are you working toward your recruiting goals? How focused are you on your business, its growth, and the value of your work with your customers? Have you done something today, however small, that will move you toward achieving those goals? As a recruiter we work toward achieving the goals of our clients and candidates everyday. That is our life blood and where most of our time should be spent. But what about you? Your success can breed other successes. And it will come across in everything you do.
Think of this story:
You are in your office and can see in a room nearby, through a small window, $100,000 dollars in cash. It is your money for the taking. Yours to have free and clear. You have never had this much money but need to do only one thing to get it, get in the room any way you can. Now this room has no doors, walls, and the window can not be broken, or the deal is off. What would you do? How hard would you work to get in there? Would you smash the walls? Take them apart one by one? Would you try something that you have never done before? I would work my way through the wall board until I made my way in. If I had to go through the ceiling, floor, get a chainsaw, whatever, I would find a way to get in. The point is simple, if you don’t do something, take some action, as often as you can to achieve your goals in recruiting, business, sports, or life…you are not getting in the room with your goals and dreams. You are just looking at them.
Life is action. Life is change. No matter what you do, everyday you change. You get older, wiser, smarter, happier, more frustrated, something but you do change. The way we deal with it is to take action. Fighting it is like fighting the tides: sure you can do it, but for how long and for what end? Make sure your daily plan includes your vision of what you want to achieve and how you want to live. Simply being aware of this will start the wheels in motion for you and before long you will be on your way.
What is your goal and dream? What small steps do you need to take to get started? What action are you going to take? Now move!
Please share a story with us on your simple daily actions that help you achieve your vision of success.
