A What’s Hot / What’s Not list for your business or career


If you want to get awesome results, you’ve got to get real about what’s currently not-so-awesome. In the Desire Map process you begin by going through a gratitude exercise, followed by a dissatisfaction review. It’s the whole picture, with a ton of love and no-sugar coating.

In our business, we just started doing a What’s Hot/What’s Not check-in. Our Chief of Staff & People Potential, Steph Corker, officially kicked this off on our last big check-in.

It’s hard to free-flow with a whole team on the phone — you can’t read people’s faces, energy gets trickier, there are awkward pauses. Add the fact that I’m an awful facilitator, and it meant that the team phone meetings were killin’ me. I figured out that structure would be our salvation. And it has been. We’ve definitely evolved from frustration to elation on the team meets.

What would your life be like if you only did what was easy? It’s almost unsettling to go there, isn’t it? When I use to try to answer that question for myself I’d squirm a bit. Lazy dilettante. As if. What would I do with all that extra time I’d have if I just did the easy stuff? Hmmm . . . maybe I’d have more time to enjoy what I’ve got and to get more of what I want. Maybe things would be . . . easier…
