You know what it means to have a seat at the table? Some people take that to mean they are sitting with some higher ups. Maybe that means you finally have some power. When you have a seat at the table, it means you have influence and the ability to affect change. Now you are ‘seated’, not literally but maybe sometimes, among decision makers. At times, you might be the one and only guest at the table.

So what do you do with that? You can take the ability to make decisions and use it as you see fit. What do you want to build? Where do you want to go? How do you want to grow? Make sure that whatever it is that you choose to do with your seat reflects everything it took for you to get there. Those seats don’t come overnight. They say it takes 10 years to become an overnight success so don’t waste any time in that chair. Use your seat at the table to take you to the top of your own empire. Motivate yourself and surround yourself with others that will push you to new heights. When you achieved that first goal, live in it for the moment and then cue up the next one. Time is temporary. Let’s make the most of it.

Until next time,
