Taking Action vs. Producing a Result

by Ford Saeks

image concept of a good marketing strategyHere at Prime Concepts we have a very open work environment, which thrives on creativity, innovation and passion. Even as an industry leader, every now and again we have to remind ourselves what our main goal is, and how we can best reach that goal. What’s our main goal you ask?

Great question, our main goal is to help our clients find, attract and keep their customers all while we continue to grow our already robust client base. It’s the “how we reach that goal” that I’d like to focus on for today’s post.  And just FYI, this isn’t something specific to just Prime Concepts, it is much bigger than that; hence why I am blogging about it.

Tips to Reduce Stress for Project Managers

by Andrea Stang

Many Project Managers or small business owners filling the role of a Project Manager, have become accustomed to very fluid environments.

Job titles can be very interesting. Experience and skills that got you a position you have are normally related to your title. However, you are probably doing a lot more than what your job title indicates. Typically this is not ideal when facing multiple tasks, juggling deadlines, managing employees, and generally losing sleep over how to stay on top of it all. Things always change and one has to be prepared for this on a daily basis.

It can be scary and overwhelming managing a project or multiple projects whatever the size especially when you do not have systems or experience as a project manager. I am here to change that! Here are a few tips to help small business owners manage your small projects more efficiently.

What are Your Personal Growth and Development Goals?

by Ford Saeks

Here at Prime Concepts Group, we talk a lot about personal growth and development goals.  In fact, at the end of each week, we each share something new we learned, as well as something we would like to do or learn in the future.  Sometimes these goals are related to our careers, sometimes not.  The point is  continual improvement, which experts agree trickles down and affects all areas of our lives.

In the spirit of personal growth and development, we’d like to showcase two members of our creative team, Krista Flying Out and Paul Badke (pictured third and fourth from left respectively).  This past weekend, Krista and Paul participated in Kansas’ Tough Mudder 2013, which took place in Topeka, Kansas.

Use Your Superpower To Make Life Easier and Get Better Results

by Ford Saeks

Ford Saeks here coming to you from the offices of Prime Concepts Group with some more Superpower thoughts. Do you sometimes wonder why other people achieve monumental success… but you’re still struggling to get what you want in life?

If so, you’re definitely not alone.

Some of it may boil down to the differences between a can-do and a can’t-do attitude, but an even larger factor could be the strategy you are using to get where you want to go!

In my experiences speaking, training and consulting with hundreds of organizations around the globe, dealing with all types of people, I constantly run across situations where people are just making things too hard and too complicated! And it makes me laugh just to think back on all of the times in my own life and career where I made things too complicated or the answers to problems were actually right in front of me. But because I felt it just couldn’t be THAT easy, it wasn’t.

Now I know… you have to have processes and procedures, and I’m a big fan of those that improve productivity and performance to get better results, but you have to ask yourself in every situation, “Am I making things too difficult?”

If the answer is yes, it’s time to reevaluate.

So what can you do now to start making life easier?

Start by writing down three things in your life that you think are too complicated. And then list out each step you’ll have to go through to complete each of them.

After your list is done, put it down and come back to it later. Whether it’s an hour later, 8 hours later, or two days, it doesn’t matter, the key is to put a fresh set of eyes on your list.

But, when you do come back, take a hard look at every step and decide if you REALLY need all of them. If you don’t need them, then get rid of them!

As you get used to this process, you’ll start to train your mind to think in terms of simple and will start to eliminate unnecessary steps in everything you do, making life easier! Just remember, everything doesn’t have to be complicated, so don’t let it be.

Well, that’s all for today! Make sure to keep us in the loop on your Superpower journey! Comment here, post on Facebook, or tweet using the #SuperPowerBook

Are You Setting SMART Goals for Yourself and Your Business?

by Ford Saeks

Think back…What was the last goal you set for yourself? Did you achieve it? If not, what was holding you back? Or…has it been so long since you’ve set a goal that you can’t even remember?

Whether you want to succeed in your business or just on a personal level (and who doesn’t?), effective goal setting is one of the key factors in achieving success. And to do it right, you need to be smart about setting your goals. Or rather, SMART.
