Lesson 7: Ask for What You Want

We are making our way and are more than halfway there. If you haven’t read 1 through 6, definitely go back and give them a quick read. These are lessons learned through a lot of mistakes and stumbles and hopefully will help you not make the same ones. Let’s get into it. Lucky number 7. Do you look around some days and think, wow, this person or that person is so lucky? Do you really think that it is luck? Do you get mad when …

Lesson 6: Let them know you did them a favor

Now listen, this one isn’t about standing on the sidelines with your hand in the air waving “look at me, look at me”. It’s actually bigger than that. Part of what you are responsible for is building the expectations of your work. How long will it take? What did it take to accomplish it? What mountains did you move? Far too many times we do things, jump through hoops, and push the timelines internally on projects and we don’t communicate what it took to achieve …

Lesson 4: Don’t Dig Holes

Don’t dig holes, now, what on earth does that mean? This one goes hand in hand with number 3! If you didn’t read number 3, you can read it here, https://hustlemomhustle.com/lesson-3-avoid-the-hypotheticals/. Avoiding hypotheticals and dealing with actuals was the key message in number 3 and I can tell you that this one is the second half. We are the WARRIOR LEADERS so we jump in headfirst! We fight for our teams and get shit done! On the opposite side of this are the “avoidance leaders”. …

Lesson 3: Avoid the Hypotheticals

Ohhhh, Cha Cha Cha! This one is a real doozy! I will warn you, this one will have you looking in the mirror ALL DAY LONG. This used to be a real pitfall for me! I am a planner. I am a fixer. And what is a planner and a fixer without a million hypothetical situations? Dun, dun, dun. See what I just did there? Oh, yeah. Coco had some issues with this one. COMING AT YOU FROM SOME REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES! You’ve heard the …

Lesson 2: Just Don’t Use Just

So much of our communication these days is written. When you are talking to another person you are able to use voice inflection, tone and body language to affect the meaning of the words you are using. Dialogue and discussion are led by all of these things working together to express a point, discuss a topic or argue a stance. But so much of this has been lost as we have moved to a primary language of written communication. We have evolved from a culture …

Lesson 1: Kill Them With Kindness

Kill them with kindness! It is truly that simple. You will always win when you employ this strategy! This one has a few applications. It is a great rule of thumb as you walk through your daily life. At the grocery store, the dry cleaner, your daily errands etc. It’s more important than ever in the face of this pandemic. And I can say I am seeing it deployed regularly. It also works in hostile situations, situations where you’ve been wronged, situations where a mistake …

Taking Life in Strides

My cousin sent me a Rachel Hollis post today and said “You are good at this. Taking life in strides” What a beautiful compliment. It really brightened my day and was definitely put right into my #glitter bucket!  I watched Rachel’s vlog post. It was a great message. She’s amazing. She was talking about  “How we take a hill when we are running and how it correlates to how we live life.” Rachel is a runner. I admire that about her. I try to be …

2020…Vision and Wishes

New Year’s resolution, a year in review, actually… a decade in review. That’s what I am seeing all over my news feeds. I see that some are saying it sucked! I saw a meme with a bag of stinky garbage kicking 2019 to the curb! And then there were others rejoicing in all that the 10’s had to offer! Feeling the peaks and valleys like….break-ups, divorces, weddings, proposals, engagements, the bachelor, RHW drama, politics, fighting, loving, babies, magic, dreams…..the “ups and downs of life”. Did …

2020 Let’s Go!

Building a Vision Page is something I do every year. I love the idea of a vision board but let’s be real, nobody has that kind of time! Especially during the holidays! #hustlemomhustle So I started putting together a vision page. It really helps you frame out the year. It’s more than a new year’s resolution. It’s a way to put into a framework what is important to you, what you want to work on and what your “lobster goal/stretch goal” is for the year! …
