2 MINUTES LATE: “Are you almost here?”
6 MINUTES LATE: “Everyone is here! Where are you?”
13 MINUTES LATE: “Did you forget about the meeting?”
20 MINUTES LATE: “Is everything okay, Remi?”
This was a training exercise that our team never forgot…
One of the things that I’m known for is my punctuality. It’s not uncommon for clients to tell me “My gosh, when you say 1:30pm you really mean 1:30pm!”
TIME is a commodity I put a high value on both for others and myself.
So when I told my team “today’s meeting is particularly important so please make sure to be here by 3pm and don’t be late”… NO ONE was late… except for me!
You see, back in the summer of 2009 we had started to meet every Monday afternoons at 3:30pm for some coaching, bonding & to basically give everyone a chance to voice their concern or offer solutions to existing problems...
If a homeowner were to offer you some coffee or tea while you're there painting their home, what would be your instinctual answer?
Now, I want to be clear, there's no RIGHT or WRONG answer.
In this weeks video, I'll share with you the reason why I would encourage you to always say YES!
Does it feel like there aren't enough hours in the day to complete your TO-DO LIST?
Do you feel overwhelmed, overworked and exhausted most of the time?
Does the idea of doing nothing make you feel unproductive?
Perhaps it's time to watch this video and bring your attention to the "next gear"...
It's been a little over 3 months since I released a new video.
The reason for this break was because I had a few BIG PROJECTS on the go and I wanted to make sure not to spread myself too thin. One of those projects involve me now having to wear a ring :)
So yesterday afternoon, I got ready to shoot some new videos but something changed a few minutes after I sat down with this cup of Tea...
A video that is perhaps a bit different than what you may be used to seeing from me... but I believe strongly that it has the potential of affecting you (in a positive way) so much more than anything I could ever teach you about Painting or Color...
Are you a hard worker?
If so, you might want to take a few minutes to watch this video because all that HARD WORK might be all for NOTHING...
PLEASE NOTE: This video is going to be the last one for a little while... Details & Announcement Revealed Inside.
The difference between operating from a place of SERVICE or SERVANT can be very subtle. So much so, that only you could ever know which one is relevant to you.
Meaning, you can't judge whether someone is coming from a place of LOVE (Service) or FEAR (Servant) based on what can be observed from an outsiders perspective.
Here's a great example... accepting to do extra work at no charge.
This could easily be coming from a place of SERVICE if you choose to do so for your client because you felt like giving them that little extra out of your own free will. Or it could also be coming from a place of SERVANT if you felt like you had to do so by fear of what would happen if you didn't.
To learn how to operate mostly from a place of SERVICE, check out this week's video.
Usually, I like to resume the content of a video to a point where you can at least see if it applies to you or not or if it's worth your time to watch it.
Seeing how this video applies to ANYONE... and I mean, ABSOLUTELY ANYONE!
I will simply say this... YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF (AND THE REST OF US) TO LISTEN TO IT... AND TO TAKE SOME TIME AFTERWARDS TO TRULY REFLECT ON IT.
