I have a coach named Erik. I've never met him in person and I only know maybe 5 facts about him, but he is an invaluable member of my team. Every time I get on the phone with him, for 30 minutes he asks me questions to ensure that I am have a clear vision of my goals, that I have a clear plan to get there and that I am taking massive action every day. He’s done a lot for me in the last few months since we’ve been talking, but the most impactful questions he asks me are:
- What are you going to do?
- By when are you going to do it?
- How will I know?
There’s nothing amazing about these questions; what’s amazing is that they are being asked and answered. Not everybody has a coach or even wants a coach, you don't need one to get results. Start asking yourself these questions. Start asking your team these questions. They are simple and so powerful to moving us towards great progress.
