By Jamie Migdal, CEO of FetchFind
If you’ve been reading my biweekly love [news] letters to you, you know that I am currently involved in a couple of business accelerator programs. One of them is the prestigious WiSTEM here in Chicago, and the other one is the equally prestigious Prosper Women Entrepreneurs (PWE) in St. Louis. Yada yada yada, etc etc etc – all that really matters is that I understand what it is my business is looking to accomplish. I’ve been working my butt off (more on that below) setting goals, making plans, and focusing on objectives.
I have my big pitch night at 1871 Chicago on Tuesday, and quite honestly every cell in my body and every moment of my time is focused on creating a memorable and meaningful three minute speech that will make 400 or 500 people in the audience feel as though they would be willing to either use FetchFind to better their business or write a check to become an investor in my company. The point being, even when you’re laser-focused on one thing, you are most likely also doing that thing for two or more reasons.The same reasoning can be applied to anything in personal life. I am on a weight-loss journey and just knocked off the first 13 pounds. Although I am super focused on reaching my goal weight, every day I do many things to stay on track to meet the goal: counting calories, getting my 10,000 steps walking my Collies, or just being comfortable with a little bit of hunger in my belly.
So whatever’s on your plate, big or small, remember to pay attention to all of the little things that will help you accomplish your ultimate goal.
