Marshall Goldsmith is always worth listening to. I was fortunate enough to attend the Women Presidents’ annual conference in Dallas last week. The keynote speaker was Marshall Goldsmith.
I’ve heard him speak before and his message was not significantly different this time. Having said that, I wouldn’t have missed him for the world. Everything he said was important enough to be repeated — repeatedly: When you listen, don’t critique. Yes, I know that but I absolutely need to be reminded.
His primary premise was that we should ask ourselves a list of questions every single day and plot the results in a spreadsheet. We each can make up our own list of questions but he suggests we start with these:
Did I do my best to:
- be happy?
- find meaning in the day?
- fully engage?
- reach my goals?
The results of our daily questioning will help us detect our patterns and opens the door to making behavioral changes.
I’m starting today.
