I’ll start the 2005 Resolutions with the number one favorite tip I’ve gotten in 2005. Resolve to make Five “Unreasonable Requests” each week. From my original post:
I had the pleasure of a long telephone conversation with Lisa Haneberg yesterday. Lisa gave me some great tips I’m sure to implement in my Innovation Coaching Program, but one thing she told me really got my attention. Each week, she resolves to make at least five “unreasonable requests” to people she has no business asking for favors. She reasons that if just one request is granted, she’s gotten a bit of a bonus that week. Doing a quick google search, I realize I’m not the only one impressed by Lisa’s approach.
I’ve been doing this religiously over the last two months and the results have been astounding. If there is only one thing you will resolve to do in 2006, make it this.
