The Importance of 150% Business Moments

November 11, 2013

Yesterday as I listened to Francis Battisiti, Ph.D., Professor at SUNY Broome Community College, speak at a conference for women entrepreneurs, he asked the audience to think about their 150% business moments. What is a 150% business moment? The moments when you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are doing exactly what you are suppose to be doing with your life.

The significance of the question settled in my heart as I choose to spend my 49th birthday traveling very early in the morning two hours to this event to support the woman who produced the event Ginny Roberts, Owner of Business Plans That Rock and the keynote speaker Joleene Moody of JoleeneSpeaks another member. Determined to spend my birthday supporting other women seemed like a perfect tribute to the life I was given.

Sitting amongst amazing women businesswomen when Dr. Battisti asked the question, I immediately wrote down my 3 powerful moments:

1. My first 150% moments occurs every single time two women from different regions meet and do business together. It was evident in this conference since Ginny from Binghamton hired Joleene from Pulaski to speak. There is nothing better than truly witnessing your entrepreneurial dream alive and working.

2. My second 150% moments are felt every time I write my weekly inspirational e-newsletter called “The Wednesday Wisdom” or a blog post and receive positive responses from women who say the writing helps them the moment they read it. Those moments inspire me to keep writing.

3. My third 150% moments are when I’m in the company of my husband and two sons peaceful and totally content. Little did I know when.AdamandMeBDI arrived back home from the conference my youngest son, who went away to college this year, would surprise me by being home to celebrate my birthday dinner absolutely making my day.

So in the spirit of Dr. Battisiti, I ask you today, “What are your 150% moments?” What moments make you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, you are doing exactly what you are meant to do? When do you feel so satisfied that you know for certainty that you are living in your life’s purpose? Try to recall 2 to 3 times in your work and/or life when you were energized, engaged, and fulfilled. What moments brought out 150% of your energy, when you wanted to be doing the work, and the high performance and high fulfillment came together for you? What was it about that experiece that brought out your 150% percent?

In the spirit of my joyous day yesterday, I hope you make time today to think about your 150% business moments. Jot them down. Keep them close. Read them often. It is those moments to keep close so you know beyond a shadow of a doubt you are doing exactly what you are meant to do.
