What Gets You Up in the Morning

One of my colleagues recently attended a conference where one of the discussions put a new twist on an old theme. Instead of “What keeps you up at night” they chose to talk about “What Gets You Up in the Morning!” It got me to thinking about my eight plus years with ARCSI. There have been a lot of reasons to get up in the morning. It starts with our over 600 members. Talking with members each day and learning about their successes or pointing them in a direction to help solve a problem still gets me “jazzed up”. It’s about the passion for what I do. Fortunately, throughout my career I have had that passion for what I was doing most to the time. When the passion wasn’t there I knew it was time to move on.


So my question to you is, Do you still have that passion when you get up in the morning? Do you get excited about what you can do for your clients that day? Do you look for ways to help your employees grow and improve each day? If you don’t, you are just going through the motions. I will argue that just going through the motions will never produce desired outcomes, either for your business or your personal life. 


The merger of ARCSI with ISSA has reignited my passion. As we explore and develop new opportunities and programs for our members the sky is the limit. We now have the resources to do things we were not able to do in the past and that is exciting. 


So I challenge you to give it a try. Instead of worrying about what keeps you up at night, focus on what gets you up in the morning. Ask that same question to your staff, the answers may give you a whole new insight and perspective on what is really important. 


See you in Vegas…..
