“ WEEK 121 / 133 – 133 WEEKS TO SUCCESS “
The squeaky wheel gets the grease. You’ll only get what you want if you ask for it because people can’t read your mind. Most people don’t have the time or interest to read your mind, so you have to bang on their doors until they give you any kind of acknowledgement. A “no” may be unfavorable, but it’s always better than not knowing because you didn’t give it a try.
Is patience a virtue? Yes, but too much patience becomes passiveness. If you need something done, then give a deadline. Timing is negotiable, but if you don’t give a time, then people will just do tasks at their own willy-nilly leisure—assuming they have need to do it at all. Same goes for your own goals. Hold yourself accountable to tasks that need to be done.
It will never be the perfect to get anything done. If you have a dream or a passion but it seems like it’s too big or far away to reach, break it down into small chunks. When projects are broken down into sizeable tasks, then we can see how the puzzle will fit together instead of a billion shattered pieces. Work at it every day, even if only for a few minutes right when you wake up or right before you go to bed. Work at it during your lunch break. Make it your side-hustle until it becomes your main hustle, or keep it as an enjoyable hobby to simply enhance your life. The stars won’t always align and some planet will be in retrograde. It’s okay. Keep going.

Each week, I take a tip from Lois P. Frankel’s book, Nice Girls Still Don’t Get the Corner Office, and explore how each of these tips affect myself and other women in similar positions on the road to becoming the women we want to be. There are far and few between who are a few steps behind me, and many more who are far advanced. I found that Lois P. Frankel’s advice applied to novice, intermediates, and experts alike. It helped me see that I was already doing right, served as a reminder to keep on doing what I was doing and how to keep that momentum going. The book also showed me areas where I could improve, and gave realistic tips to jump on board. There are a total of 133 tips, and explore one tip per week in a program I call: 133 Weeks to Success.
Join the movement using the hashtag #133WeeksToSuccess with posts which are posted every #AlphaFemaleFriday.
