Paul's Blog: Commitment
“I want to be more fit” she said. “Good for you!” I said back, “when do you want to start?”
“On my birthday in two months.” she said…
Is she alone in putting things off?
Nope. It’s easy to speak a commitment and then do nothing. Often, we feel that if we tell someone we want to do something in the future, and make it a date far enough in the future to be forgettable, we are still ok because we made the commitment, and we’re good people for making the decision.
No, making a date with commitment is not enough.
We have to jump in the deep end immediately, today, within the first 12 hours of making the commitment before we’ll actually do anything.
If not it’s just a wish.
Wishes are just like lotto tickets. We keep buying them, but we never win.
Be courageous today. Make a commitment, then do it. You’ll astound many people, maybe even yourself.
Go, make an Impact!… commit to it.
My vision is quite simple: to make an impact on the lives of the people who have been entrusted to me: You (for reading this article), my family and my clients.
I coach people. Direct, practical, innovative, meaningful.
I coach for excellence.
I love what I do... and so do my clients.
Over the years I've noticed that business coaching that was supposed to make us stronger actually took away our confidence and made us doubt ourselves. Confidence and people skills aren't developed just by measuring and planning everything, they grow through doing and learning from experience and by taking risks. People want to make a difference. Build teams. Be better understood. Live more confidently.
I founded IBC Impact Business Communication Inc. to create a world where business people communicate and act with confidence to create better worlds for themselves. Worlds where they feel powerful and free to express themselves. Worlds where something as simple as conversation creates energy, understanding and impact. Worlds so exquisite, I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
