The DO OVER Opportunity
The Gift of a DO OVER
How often do you get the opportunity to start over and think differently about how you want to live your life and run your business?Â Can a year of turmoil be a gift to open our awareness of what truly matters at work and in life?
Consider a new set of principles to support you and your companyâ€™s well-being.Â Leverage them to support others in their journey.
Life just gave every business and organization in the world a DO OVER.Â A chance to start again when looking at people and process and wants and needs.Â In times of survival, we often rely on our natural instincts to pull us through â€“ and survive we did.Â And think about the extra energy and extra focus it took.
What if you could harness that energy all the time versus only during a pandemic?Â Guess what â€“ DO OVER.
Renew and Repair
A DO OVER is like a renewal.Â The repairing of someone who is worn-out, run down, or broken.Â Building oneâ€™s confidence in themselves and the value they bring to the world.Â The repairing of something whether it is a process or a team, so it is renewed to a state of being made new, fresh, or strong again.
Pause and reflect â€“ itâ€™s time for a revelation.Â DO OVER.
Make the learning greater than the experience â€“ then harness it and apply it moving forward.
Learnings include â€“ pandemic survival, social and political unrest, virtual interaction malaise, being pushed and forced versus moving at our own free willâ€¦
Your DO OVER Starts Now
Where am I beginning my DO OVER?Â Think about these six actionsâ€¦
- Staying grounded in my values
- Focusing on my unique ability
- Beginning and ending in gratitude
- Making the learning greater than the experience
- Embracing the questions â€“ because a good question is worth far more than a correct answer
- And taking the time to do nothing â€“ to feed the soil of my soul
Organizations and leaders who recognize and capitalize on a DO OVER will see immediate changes and renewed energy and focus. So will their people.Â And thatâ€™s what matters most.
Replenish your energy.
Give it a whirlâ€¦
This is a chance of a lifetime â€“ DO OVERS allowed.
