There are steps you can take to "let go" of the things in your life that are stifling your success. Some suggestions:

 

* Let go of perfectionism. Perfectionism is paralysis and often 80% is more than good enough. Sometimes it is better to just complete something than obsess over details that won't make a difference. Set time limits for projects and stick to them.

* Let go of energy suckers. Get rid of negative, non-performing employees on the payroll. When management at 3M laid off the bottom 10% (the poorest performers) at one facility--their productivity skyrocketed up eighteen percent. 3M learned that negative employees not only produce less, but they also cost more. Negative employees destroy morale and turn off potential customers. As one employee said, "an energy sucker is the person you go on break with and come back more exhausted than when you left."

* Let go of meetings. The great corporate time waster. So many meetings aren't really necessary and too often they are poorly organized and run. Conduct training for effective meetings for all management personnel. This should include an evaluation checklist whether to have the meeting at all. Make sure that meeting organizers know how to create an agenda, start on time and keep control of the proceedings.

* Let go of filing. Make your office paperless by using some of the new on-line filing systems such as www.thepapertiger.com. Easy to implement, you can manage both paper and electronic files. It eliminates duplication of materials and does not require scanning.

* Let go of crisis management. Avoid the tyranny of the urgent so that you can focus on what is important. Often the result of someone else's poor planning; it can result in spending most of your day putting out fires. Let co-workers know that you plan your day and don't jump from project to project. Insist on realistic timeframes for projects.

* Let go of interruptions. Train yourself and your co-workers to stop the frequent interruptions that block creativity and "flow." Every time you are interrupted, it will take an average of 15 minutes to get back into the task at hand. Make sure you are not interrupting yourself with frequent breaks, cups of coffee or chatting in the hall.

* Let go of useless tasks. Do you really have to do all the stuff on your "to do" list? I have seen executives typing their own letters, doing computer entry and other everyday jobs that could be easily delegated to someone else. Evaluate what you really need to do.

* Build white space in your life. UN-schedule time on your calendar and in your life to just think, read, walk, and relax. Have a weekend from time to time where you have nothing planned. Don't schedule every hour of the day with no breathing room for the unexpected.

* Know what is draining your resources. Take a careful inventory of where your time goes and with whom. What activities/people deplete your energy? Evaluate how you can handle them differently. How do you re-charge? Structure your week with some re-charging activities such as exercise and hobbies.

* Start plugging the leaks. Start letting go of the problems areas. Get rid of clutter, let go of your bottom feeding employees and control access to your time.

According to Albert Eistein, there are three rules of work: "Out of clutter find simplicity' from discord find harmony; in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."

Looking for a Fixed Ops Dir and Service Mgr (Multi Store) in the Quad Cities, IL and a Service Manager in Ft. Worth, TX (Hyundai dealership)
Comment by Kevin "Friend Me" Bradberry on April 13, 2011 at 9:53pm

Craig,

If you want more information on the job, here you go.

The Owner's Name is Ben. Him and his brother Patrick are partners and have had the store for quite a while. They are highly effective operators, and are capable of executing all duties in the store with high efficiency. They are both fixed and variable ops experts. they are looking to make only ONE hiring decision for a desk manager and they want him/her to be the right one. They are looking for someone who is looking for a home. The dealership name is Brannon Honda. Feel free to present yourself to them as soon as tomorrow if you like, but know this.

I only endorse those who I KNOW and have worked with in various capacities as my reputation is on the line every time I recommend people.  I will help in making the initial introduction and what you all decide is between you.

I'm sure you don't need me to endorse you based on what I saw in your credentials, however it also looks like you're more E-Commerce focused than Desk Manager focused.  Either way, good luck to you.  If you want to talk about the job or the people.Call my office anytime at 888-350-3310... I CAN endorse them at least.. They are good fair and honest people. I would work there!  Good luck.
