5 Habits that Will Dramatically Improve Your Event Management Skills this 2017 | Event Management PhilippinesFriday, January 20, 2017
This is your year as an event management professional. All the things that you set your mind to achieve you will achieve. In order for you to ensure that this happens, here are 5 habits that will dramatically improve your event management skills.
1. Avoid Procrastination
I love Gary Vaynerchuk. For him, the most important word is HUSTLE. This means that while the rest are resting, you work. Always hustle to achieve more things. Always try to be productive. Action is better than words. Action is better than any other elements of your event management profession. If you are moving, you are accomplishing a lot of things.
2. No More Assumptions
“This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have.”
This is one of the most important stories in my life. It showed that we cannot assume somebody would do that task for us. We must remove or destroy the silos that divide our organizations.
Never assume. Always be proactive, and the best, always check and take action for things that need our attention and are critical to our success as an event professional.
3. Say No
The hardest thing to do is the courage to say no. I have heard and read that all successful people and event management professionals are brave because they know how to say no.
The culture to say yes or the wiring to say
always dilute our
energy and prevent us from maximizing our full potential. yes
The courage to say no, and choose your battles will enable you this year to produce more and achieve more.
4. Find and Achieve Your One Thing
Gary Keller’s best selling book “ The One Thing” is also a habit that will open a great opportunity
Thinking hard and choosing to achieve The One Thing that matters most to you this year will put you to greater heights.
But first things first, this One Thing should be bigger than yourself. It should be something that makes you excited to get up every day and embrace the challenges of life.
5. Be a Blessing to Others, Everyday
Pablo Picasso said, “ The meaning of life is finding your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away”.
Being a blessing to others will make
your 2017 as an event
management professional a purpose driven life. It will make you happy.
We are in a service driven industry, the more you give your life to others thru excellent service, and passionate demonstration of your talents and skills, your 2017 will be one of those amazing years that you will ever have as an event management professional.
So let us join hands and make unbelievable breakthroughs this year.
