The 30-day Director Challenge

The 30-day Director Challenge

Strong Branding

As the Director of I Do Marketing, and working with 100’s of Directors over the years I hear so often about the challenge of balancing both work and life and the never-ending to-do list, that sense of not feeling accomplished comes up time and time again. There is always more you could do or be doing. I hear you, I am here with you on this never-ending journey and one thing I’m good at is a list, or if I set myself a task/goal I will GET IT DONE.

Getting the right life/work balance.

I’ve learned that getting the right balance in work and life helps both areas. I’m not perfect, I’m certainly not there with this but I am proactive in my approach to it.

This 30 day Directors challenge is designed to help you to feel more accomplished. Not to add another task to your to-do list but to inspire change, make you to think and ‘do’ something proactive for the benefit of both life and business accomplishment.

Give it a go this month and see what happens:

  1. Set a personal goal for the month
  2. Book a coffee with a motivational associate/friend
  3. Write 3 things you need to do by the end of the day
  4. Take a walk outside

  20. Book a restorative break

Let me know how you get on and if you enjoyed it I’d love to hear from you.

I’ll explain why I’m doing this. I act as a Marketing Director for a select few businesses. I sit in on monthly management meetings, boards and help them directly with the marketing strategy for the business. I see so many Directors heading toward burn out and sometimes a better mix of work and life is what is needed. Two things to consider here: If you need a better balance, review and adjust. If you need marketing direction for your business, pop me a message.
