First 13 assignments for June boot camp. Please print them out and check them off as you do them. I have often thought that some of the most common little things in our lives are the minutes that pass in each hour of the day. For each human being, time is indeed an indispensable resource. It can neither be ignored nor altered.
We are compelled to spend it at a fixed rate of 60 minutes every hour. No spigot can be installed to regulate its flow, and no refilling device can replenish its quantity.
The question is not one of managing the clock, but one of managing ourselves with respect to the time we have.
Each minute is a little thing and yet, with respect to our personal productivity, to manage the minute is the secret of success.
assignment 1.) Take the time to identify eight 15 minute blocks o f time in each day for the entire week.
Important little things that merit our attention are the small acts of service we perform for our fellowmen
Do you take the time to remember some of the simple courtesies that are so important in relationships with others?
Do you remember the smile, the compliment, the positive note, and the word of encouragement?
We should do these important little things without hesitation.
assignment 2.) Make a list of the people you associate with. Start with the people you see and talk to each and every day. Next make a list of the people you would see each week like your child's teacher, the teller at the bank, your postman and the waitress at your favorite restaurant.
Then make a list of the people you haven't seen or spoken to in a while and would like to take the time to just say hello and see how they are doing.
Spencer W. Kimball said: “I have learned that it is by serving that we learn how to serve. When we are engaged in the service of our fellowmen, not only do our deeds assist them, but we put our own problems in a fresher perspective.
When we concern ourselves more with others, there is less time to be concerned with ourselves. … So often, our acts of service consist of simple encouragement or of giving mundane help with mundane tasks, but what glorious consequences can flow from mundane acts and from small but deliberate deeds!
… God does notice us, and he watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs. Therefore, it is vital that we serve each other ”
assignment 3) Create an assortment little Hello or Thank you cards large enough to hold a business card.
The perfect card example is on page 194 in your Stampin Up catalog. A solid colored cardstock stamped with a background stamp in the same color. A die cut heart, a punched out heart, and the words thank you.
I would use our word window punch to cut out the words thanks so much on page 139, or the words thank you from page 141, or the words thinking of you, thank you or just for you from the teeny tiny wishes set on page 145.
Use slit punch #42 on page 187 to make a place inside to hold your business card.
If you believe in God you will appreciate these words “But behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass”
It's the little thing you do or don't do that will make a big difference in these assignments. The little things you do today when combined with what you do each week, will grow your team and build your business.
... “Do more of what works and less of what doesn't” Could anything be more plain than this? Do not let the simplicity of this strategy make you doubt it. If you are feeling that your business is stagnate or stale, stop and rediscover the techniques you used in times past when you were initially building your business relationships.
With few exceptions, they will still work.
assignment 4) Go back to the list of people you made. If you don't already have your past and present customers on the list, add them. You can also add people in groups like Teachers that go to school with my children, or members in my women's club etc.
Most of us enjoy being around someone who builds us up and makes us feel good.
Using words of encouragement, love, respect, courtesy , appreciation, admiration, and gratitude as we talk with one another wi ll motivate us to spend more time together.
Most relationships die from neglect.
assignment 5) Think of things you can do that will improve or rekindle your relationships. Take the time to think about ways we can touch the lives o f those around us. Write them down and work on them.
Each day you may add to your prayers "Help me to touch the life of others in a positive way. Help me to be inspired to know who to reach out to and who to serve. Then keep track of the little things you do so you can watch your progress. How much do you know about them? Plan to spend time together. What do they like to do?
How many of the people you have listed enjoy activities like stamping or scrapbooking?
How many of them enjoy spending their lunch time with friends? How many enjoy a weekly Friday Night activity? What are their hobbies?
Do you know their favorite color?
Do you know anything about their children?
Do you know what the names of their pets are?
assignment 6) Take the time to write a little "Getting to know you" survey Ask only 5-10 questions .... Keep it simple
Questions may include:
When is the last time you went to lunch with a friend? What is your favorite food? What kinds of greeting cards do you find most needed? example: thank you, birthday, holiday cards What is your favorite childhood memory? If you had more free time each day what new hobby would acquire?
What family activities are your favorite to scrapbook? What are the ages of your children? Would you mind sharing your favorite family recipe?
assignment 7) send this "Getting to know you" survey to your friends and customers. See how many reply. Send this out using e-mail Then, make this survey into a little 1/2 page flyer and pass it out at each event, make sure you add a place for them to write their name, phone # and e-mail address. People you know will be happy to give you this information if you make it fun and less like business.
If you want to get more of these surveys back add a line on the bottom that each returned survey will be adding into your monthly drawing.
The prize could be as simple as some dies cut from your big shot.
May God bless you and your family, Sherrill Graff firstname.lastname@example.org
