Last month I shared a brief message about personal and business systems meeting goals. As you may recall, “Businesses do not rise to their goals; they fall to their systems” (Atomic Habits, by James Clear). You may have noticed a trend with our speakers this year as we have focused on personal and professional systems and mindset in the sales and marketing industry.
Judge Tommy Webb spoke about his life story of survival at a young age to thriving later in life while always caring for other people. Oscar Montenegro spoke on business planning and process development. Timothy Weddle, this past January, shared about “what sales is, and what sales is not”, while focusing on our systems and our relationships; develop your systems to meet your goals.
This month we are excited to bring Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay to SME on March 10th to share about his experiences leading our community from a law enforcement perspective. As a former law enforcement officer, I am personally very excited to bring DA Kagay to SME as we hear about how our community safety and cohesion is developing which, in turn, helps grow our city as an attractive home for new families. You won’t want to miss this event.
And in closing, if things are just getting to be too much to handle this week, give yourself a break and go watch a re-run of the 2020 Super Bowl. I have it on good authority the re-run is a great game but I wouldn’t want to spoil the outcome for you. I look forward to seeing everyone on March 10th!
