There aren’t too many days so emblazoned in our memories as July 20 is for me. 
Not just for one memorable moment, but two spectacular ones.

So, if you don’t mind, come along with me as I memorialize those wonderful moments and share some of the colorful details that intensify my own memory of those very special days … and maybe help you, as well, to memorialize those special moments in your life.

Sunday, July 20, 1958

My father was a minister so weekends were never our own. Saturdays for last minute preparation, Sundays for church.

We lived in Michigan and were huge Detroit Tiger fans. Detroit was several hundred miles away and between school, summer jobs and Dad’s work, we never made it to a game.

That is, until my Dad was hired to teach some courses at Boston University one summer and the family got to tag along for 3 weeks. While Dad was working, Mom dragged us all over town. We hit the Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall, Bunker Hill, Lexington & Concord and an endless array of the great attractions of Boston.

“Hey Dad, look who’s in town?”

Is anything less than Action going to get you anywhere?

This is a good way to think about the impact you want to have.

You don’t have to invent the cure for cancer or world hunger to register your footprints.

You don’t need to be perfect or act perfectly.

Focus on the impact you can have on your family, friends and colleagues no matter how small that circle.

You can make a lasting impact … just not by sitting down.

Are you spending enough time evaluating your team?

At your peril, you can ignore this cornerstone of your business … but it will ALWAYS come back to TEAM.

There is NO substitute for a Great Team … whether it’s the leadership team at the top of the food chain or a small team you’re managing inside of a particular functional group.

Invest a little time … TODAY … to consider the strengths and weaknesses of your team by asking THESE 3 QUESTIONS:

  • What can you do … SPECIFICALLY … to coach each of your teammates to superior performance? 
  • Are there changes to your team’s structure or personnel that would make it stronger? Be VERY OBJECTIVE about this.
  • Are you willing to make the tough decisions to get there?

Making your team as strong as possible will create a powerful and positive difference to your performance this year.

Feel free to reach out to me directly. We can think about it together so you AND your team can knock the ball out of the park in 2019.
