Issue 20 : What Are You Putting Up With?

I have been participating in a business mastermind as of lately. The mastermind requires a book. I start reading the first chapter and immediately get hit with a brick from its title: ‘what are you putting up with?’ This title stops me cold because I completely understand it. I have experienced a lot of growing pains due to my refusing to put up with things. That title has hit me so hard that I have gone to the Facebook group to do a video.

PositivityChange.com is a place where we help you manifest positive change in your personal and professional lives. I am asking you what are you putting up with now? Watch the video below.

Newsletter : Issue 17 : Pivot on Positive Change in 2017!

 

Happy New Year everyone!

This year I am pivoting my life and career towards growth and experiencing more positive change. I am also in a very different position now than when I started this blog in July 2015. I am relying more on blogging than working a job. Also 2016 was my first full year of blogging. This demanded a whole lot of commitment. My 2016 highlight was the December time management series because I felt that these articles helped so many people maximize their time. I did a lot of livestreaming (mainly Periscope and Facebook Live) to expand my message. I ended the time management series on a high note with the FREE YouTube Live time management webinar. You can watch it here: www.positivitychange.com/timemanagement.

In 2017 my goal is to bring more positive change news. I will supply more change management resources. Also I will do more livestreaming and events. Speaking of events, this Sunday, January 8, 2017 at 12pm EST, Goddess Fish will host my Expand Your Personal Brand workbook Facebook party. I have decided to kick off 2017 with a party because I want people to manifest positive change in their personal and professional lives. My workbook accomplishes this for less than $10. You can buy it here: www.expandyourpersonalbrand.com/workbook.

This Week in PCM : Retraining Your Algorithm

09152016-retraining-the-algorithm

Algorithm – a process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, especially by a computer.

I have hired a virtual assistant to handle my social media accounts because I admit that this has become overwhelming. I have so many and even with HootSuite, scheduling my own social media has been cumbersome. However, now I am free. There are two benefits in handing over my social media accounts to a professional. One benefit is direct while the other is indirect. Freedom is the direct benefit. Knowledge is the indirect benefit.

Yesterday I had our first weekly follow-up meeting with my virtual assistant. She said that we had to retrain my Facebook business page’s algorithm because I was posting too much. She recommended only posting 2-3 times a day on my Facebook business page else the social media platform would think that I am spamming. Her using the phrase ‘retaining my algorithm’ has gotten me thinking about how to apply this thinking in my personal and professional lives.

‘Retraining the algorithm’ means taking positive action steps towards reshaping your personal and professional lives. Here are my four steps towards retraining your algorithm:

  • Admit what is not working and stop doing it
  • Write down what you want to accomplish with action steps
  • Take action
  • Measure the action

Admit what is not working and stop doing it

First and foremost, be honest. Admit what is not working and stop doing it! You are digging a deeper hole for yourself taxing your energy, emotions and spirit. Using myself as an example, my planning my own social media accounts has drained me. Once I hire the virtual assistant, I am free to pursue other business activities.

Write down what you want to accomplish with action steps

Write down what you want to accomplish. You cannot only hope and fantasize that what’s not working. Devising an action plan is a must because it creates a framework towards getting things done. Moreover, this action plan holds you accountable because you have crafted it yourself. You are taking ownership with an action plan.

Take action!

You must active instead of passive. There are so many people who write action plans yet take no action. Do not be one of them! You must implement your action plan. Remember, every day you take action you are putting the things that haven’t worked for you farther away in your rearview mirror.

Measure the action

Of course, you have to measure your progress. This trips a lot of people up. They have the action plan and are taking action; however, they don’t know how well they are doing or how to build upon the progress that they are currently making. This is where creating metrics come in. It is crucial that you know how well (or bad) you are doing. Measurements give me a tangible way to create a baseline and evaluate yourself. A baseline is essential because it’s a standard. Anything above the baseline is good and anything below it is bad. The baseline also lends towards continuous improvement because you can create additional metrics on becoming better.

These four steps will help you ‘retrain your algorithm’ for greater personal and professional success.
