You don’t have to do it all yourself!
I used to subscribe to The Monthly Mentor program by a fellow named Raymond Aaron. Two interesting elements to the program were delegation and appreciation. When thinking about achieving personal success my first thought is about how important my own efforts are. But, think about it. Those who can most effectively get others to help achieve worthy goals tend to be the movers and shakers of our society.
In your store, you might have a great idea for reorganizing a display. If you can communicate effectively your wondrous vision for the new display and get your manager or coworkers excited about your idea, you can delegate portions of the work to others. Once achieved and all involved feel the pride of a job well-done, don’t forget to express your appreciation. You’ll be more likely to gain support for future initiatives.
