#SaturdayMorningHustle advice for handling interruption to your schedule, system or process (your comfort zone). After a week of travel (for business) I'm way outside my normal routine. Even though I'm not as structured as many people, I do like having an idea of what needs to be done, in what order, how long something should take, etc…. ⠀ ⠀ But the key to being successful is the ability to handle situations that take you out of your comfort zone. That's often where the best work occurs. Don't be afraid of getting out of your routine, embrace it. Make a potential weakness a strength.⠀ ⠀ My question for you is, are you super structured and organized or are you fluid and flexible in your process? Let's talk about it. How do you prefer to work, and how do you get back on track if you are pushed out of that routine (or lack of a routine)?⠀ ⠀ Subscribe to the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay on Anchor https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding and streaming on Spotify.⠀ ⠀ Be like @vickker and get your Saturday Morning Hustle t-shirt.

No, we're not on a new diet for the #SaturdayMorningHustle but instead reminding you (while reminding myself) that we all need to take the advice and guidance we give to others as direction for ourselves. There's nothing like a less-than-happy conversation with a client to make you feel really stupid for expecting discipline and structure from them (of your making or theirs) but not yourself as well. Trust me, I'm speaking from very recent experience. This is called "eating your own dog food" or "taking your own medicine" or "walking it like you talk it" – you get the message, right? Too many people in business and other pursuits fear rules or structure because they don't want to be constrained or held back by a business plan or marketing strategy. Of course, this is misguided. The plan create structure with room to adapt so you can be creative or make different decisions on the fly when adaptation is needed. That's how it's (supposed to be) designed to work best. Everyone needs to be working towards the same goals, via different objectives and tactics while remembering the big picture. Anything "held back" by a good plan probably deserves to be skipped. So, what is one way (or more) you can do more of what you say or eat your own dog food better after this gentle reminder? How will you be better at following the rules you set in order to reach success in a better way? Best of luck! See you next week. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the Saturday Morning Hustle. #RiseAndGrind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart #WorkHard Subscribe to the podcast on #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle on Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay on @anchor https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding and streaming on @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle.

It's such a simple #SaturdayMorningHustle concept: #SocialMedia – Platforms for people to connect with each other from anywhere at anytime without limitations. It's like everyone is invited to the party, class, meeting, conference, exhibition, etc. no matter where you are or how you get there. BUT the platforms quickly declined into the home of trolls, spammers and scam artist. There is hope!⠀ ⠀ I'm seeing a shift in how people understand social media, the internet, mobile technology, etc. and it's for the good. Entrepreneurs, marketers and business decision-makers are pulling back from selling and doing a better job of communicating by being social. Like the wise man once said, start with your WHY long before you get to the how, what and for how much.⠀ ⠀ Don't use SM to prospect wide and close what you can, but instead tell your story and connect with people as people. What you want them to do (buy something, go somewhere, support a cause, vote, riot, etc.) will naturally occur once you take the opportunity to create relationships. THAT is what social media is supposed to do. ⠀ ⠀ Good luck, see you next week!⠀ ⠀ Shoutout to @christieowenart for being positive, doing things in the right way and sharing her motivation with others. Way to go! ⠀ ⠀ It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle. Listen the full 5 min.

Roller coasters are supposed to be fun because you get to climb to the top of the track, look around at everything and then all-of-a-sudden whoosh your diving downward at top speed. Twist, turns and even loops. That's great fun at an amusement park but not when running a business. A metaphorical roller coast ride as an entrepreneur is having an epic high like a new client, big check or other great success but then what goes up must also come back down. Often in business, these highs and lows happen in the same week. That's the roller coaster. ⠀ ⠀ So, what do you do? Strive for a more predictable middle. Avoid making decisions when you're at the very top or very bottom. Understand that neither the euphoria of wins or the dread of a loss (taking an "L") is permanent. Predictability is key to a successful business, so go after those highs to balance the lows (it happens to everyone, not just you) but work towards consistency. The roller coaster is a lot of fun, but it's exhausting at the same time. If you want a long, healthy career try staying off the roller coaster or at least try to make it a short ride. ⠀ ⠀ Don't think you're bulletproof when you are on top and don't quit just because you came crashing back down. Balance yourself and understand we all take this ride from time to time. ⠀ ⠀ Good luck! See you next week. May the Forth (5/4/19) be with you. It's Saturday, I'm in the office so it must be the #SaturdayMorningHustle.⠀ ⠀ Listen the full 5 min. #SaturdayMorningHustle Podcast on @Spotify http://bit.ly/SaturdayMorningHustle or #iTunes http://bit.ly/SatMornHustle or @Anchor.fm https://anchor.fm/kyle-golding or Google Play http://bit.ly/SMHGooglePlay⠀ ⠀ #RiseAndGrind #EvenOnTheWeekend #WorkSmart #WorkHard #Entrepreneur #Business #Career #Advice #Success #Coffee #Caffeine #Dedication #Consistency #Predictability #SaturdayThoughts #SaturdayMotivation

Another #SaturdayMorningHustle Accountability Conversation: Putting action behind your decisions. It’s not enough to have great character in your decision-making process, but you MUST put action behind the idea or it's worthless. ⠀ ⠀ This is not just in your personal life but also your business life. People want to hire and do business with people they can trust with decisions and actions. You need both! Good luck!! . . . . #ShoutOut the @wilshirecabinet for the great hat. ⠀ ⠀ #Integrity #Action #Trust #Accountability #Motivation #Business #PersonalLife #Business #Entrepreneur #Sustainable #Growth #Goals #Objectives #Measurement #Integration #Creativity #RiseAndGrind #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Success #Communication #EvenOnTheWeekend

#SaturdayMorningHustle #Accountability and #Character – It's that time of year, everyone is playing nice for Santa (or their boss). But were you a good person all year, not just in December? Do you make decisions based on what's best for all or just you? Do you have character? Do you do the right thing, even if it's unpopular or even gets you into a tough situation? As we end the year let's talk about accountability, starting with character. You either have it, or you don't. I hope you understand why it's important….. #Trust #Motivation #Business #Person #Entrepreneur #Sustainable #Growth #Goals #Objectives #Measurement #Integration #Creativity #RiseAndGrind #WorkSmart then #WorkHard #Success #Communication #EvenOnTheWeekend
