How to Bounce Back, Redeem Yourself and Crush Your Q2 Goals
COMEBACKS, REDEMPTION AND SECOND ACTS are ubiquitous in our culture today: the salesperson or entrepreneur who turns a bad year or quarter into one of redemption and prosperity, the celebrity or athlete who falls from grace and bounces back bigger and better than ever.
So often it’s a major setback — cancer, divorce, job loss, the death of a loved one, bankruptcy, an accident, or a faux pas — that puts the spotlight on our lives and shows us the way to a meaningful “second act.”
As you are confronted with the reality that the first quarter of the year is history, now is the perfect time to reflect on your YTD performance.
How many of your goals have you accomplished so far this year?
Are you on track for having the best year of your life…or are you underperforming?
If you continue doing exactly what you’ve done during the first quarter, where will you be at the end of the second quarter…or at the end of the year for that matter?
Will you be struggling, spinning your wheels and in the same place where you are right now?
Why would you want that?
Especially when you could be…
Confidently executing the plan that launches your new online business…
Completing the manuscript that makes you a best-selling author…
Running the marathon you promised yourself and getting back into great shape…
Crushing your sales goals, breaking records and earning some huge commissions.
I know you started out the year with the best of intentions…determined that this year would be different, but somewhere along the way, you lost your focus and dropped the ball…and now you find yourself having to play catch up.
It happens to the best of us…but the good news is that things are about to turn around quickly.
So what can you do if you’re underperforming or unsatisfied with your first quarter performance…what strategies can you deploy to make up for lost time…how do you right your wrongs and quickly redeem yourself in the second quarter?
I put together this Comeback Manifesto to answer those questions and to provide you with a game plan—specific actions and implementation strategies that you can deploy to redeem yourself and crush your second quarter goals.
You must recognize a few things about the importance of seizing this opportunity to start the second quarter fast, focused and fired up.
1. The second quarter will have little value to you from a productivity standpoint, if you do not demonstrably step up your game and deploy better execution strategies. In a very real sense, this is a use it or lose it proposition.
2. Your loss is someone else’s gain as someone with more courage, conviction and smarts than you will find a way to improve their performance, and make the kind of progress you only wished for.
The importance of how you execute the second quarter of the year cannot be overstated…as if you have a successful second quarter, it naturally follows that you are closing any performance gaps, building momentum and setting yourself up for a successful year.
An aggressive approach to redeeming yourself in the second quarter is smart business and a devastating competitive advantage as your competition is left with no option other than to spend the balance of the year playing catch up.
