The actions you take during your first few months when starting something new have a major impact on your success or failure. Build positive momentum early on and it will propel you through your tenure. Make some early missteps and you could face an uphill battle for the rest of your time.
The biggest challenge we face during these periods is staying focused on the right things. You are drinking from the proverbial fire hose while trying to get settled and figure out how to start to have an impact. It’s easy to take on too much or to waste your precious time. So, it helps to have a set of questions to guide you.
Here are the five most important ones to ask…and keep on asking on a regular basis:
- How Will I Create Value?
- How Does The Version Of Me, Excelling At Life In The Near Future, Expect Me To Behave Right Now?
- How Will I Get Some Early Wins?
- Whose Support Is Critical?
- What Skills Do I Need To Develop To Excel In This Role?
Here is a little poetry I drafted to help overcome those everyday blues and mundane routine work. Just a little escape through words. Hope it helps!
FROM THE OUTSIDE
we often find ourselves in the center of the chaos
surrounded by big corporations, emotionless leaders, deadlines and paperwork, praying that it will someday pay off
i often find myself on the outside looking in
seeing, observing, working and praying, that someday through all of this, I’ll surely win
to me, this life is not meant to be sitting at a desk for 8 hours
it should be spent with loved ones, laughing, falling in love, dancing in a field of sunflowers
the world in which we currently reside is not one i like to call my home
i catch myself staring at the sky, praying that someday i’ll make my own
where we don’t hurt each other because of a thought, an appearance or the soil we grew up on
instead, see the beauty in the world each day as innocently and wondrous as a new, small fawn
the way we exist in this corporate, money-hungry world has to change soon
or i and a million others will fly straight to the farthest moon
and start a whole new life
and this time, do it right
we should be happy and feel love every single day
not struggling to survive or working our lives away
it’s time to step outside and look in
if enough of us do this and stare right at them, i promise you, we’ll win.
