"I JUST HAVE TO PUT MY MIND TO IT"
It is November already, can you believe it? Today’s Blog is about the thing that you always said you will do, but never get around to it. I am sure that this never happens to you, but in my world, it is a constant reminder that I need to make a goal and stick to it. For example, our Blanchard re-manufacturing facility is beyond swamped and we need to hire a couple of experienced machine tool builders to add to our current staff of 12 highly qualified technicians. This is just one of the business things I need to accomplish “sort of make hay while the sun is shining” if you will. I also have some personnel goals that I have made over and over again and not started, like getting my 50 year old body back in shape!
Well if anyone reads these blogs, here is a trick that I picked up in my Sandler Sales Training that may help you achieve those goals that keep slipping by every month. Take a 3 by 4 index card and write the single most important thing that you have been putting off on it. Then fold it up small and place it in your pocket with your change. Everyday take it out of your pocket and open it up and read it out loud to yourself and fold it up and put it back. I am telling you if you do this every day for thirty days, you will achieve this goal or you will be headed on the path to achieve it! Now all you have to do is decide the most important goal to work on first, but you may want to start small and go from there.
Speaking of Company goals one of our everyday goals is to locate good used CNC machine tools that are surplus on the market, if you have something that is sitting in your plant and not being used, contact us. If you are looking in to purchasing a Re-Manufactured Blanchard from us in the next six months you may want to contact our sales staff and get it in the job “Q” as we are currently building a 100”,60”,42” and 36” that are all sold. Well I will end my blog with another quote that I have heard a number of times regarding goals, “If you do not set your own goals, then you are probably living someone else’s”.
