Successful Business Meetings – Overview
A series of successful business meetings at the right time in your career can change your life forever.
So you have to start taking meetings seriously. Much more seriously.
To make things happen, to be an ideas person, to be someone who gets things done, to be the person you want to be, then you need to be clear-headed, fresh and as stress-free as possible.
If you’re only running on half a tank then you’ll get caught out and you’ll regret it later – when it might be too late.
In other words, you have to consider you and your lifestyle.
Try following these rules. They’re simple and they work.
- Get plenty of sleep. Eight hours is normal. Five isn’t.
- Don’t be hung-over in meetings
- Keep fit.
- Have a definite relaxation routine
Remember: The people who haven’t the time to do the above haven’t got the time to be a real success.
Old chestnut: Did you ever hear of the guy who was so poor he couldn’t even afford to pay attention?
If you want to be a big success then you have to make the time to get your lifestyle right.
You need to make sure that your lifestyle is one that will ensure you function to the best of your ability during meetings.
If you don’t make the time to ensure you function at your best then you’ll only get second best.
At meetings, you need to ensure that you’re at your personal peak.
This is so incredibly important, yet so many people neglect it, even boast about it. Don’t be fooled.
- Stay sober in the week.
- Get your sleep.
- Look after your body.
- Establish a stress-eliminating personal routine.
