“I Did” vs. “We Should”

As an employee at your company, skip saying “we should do X.”

Instead, just do it first! Then show your team.

“Hey look, I created a content calendar.”
“I went ahead and cleaned the Google Drive.”
“I drafted up this new pricing plan. What do you think?”

Create value up front then ask. Show that you value that change so much that you put it the effort.

(Check out episode 2 of Office Hours Podcast for more on this mindset).
