I hate scales. Sometime in my 40s I realized that they were not my friend. It didn’t seem to matter if I waited until after exercise or before getting dressed, they didn’t read fairly. It wasn’t until I started using them as a tool to measure the effectiveness of my activities that I viewed them in a more favorable light. Now I know that if I will track my daily water intake, exercise activity, food (kind and amount), sleep, and body measurements I can predict whether that scale will go up or down on any given day.
Our Power of One report is similar for many members. You may LOVE it or HATE it depending on if you are tracking the activity that is requested as a member of BNI. It is not an arbitrary score. It tracks and totals activity from 5 areas: attendance, referrals, visitors, one-to-ones, and CEUs. For a perfect score of 100 (20 in each area), you would need to average 1 meeting, 1 referral, 1 one-to-one, and 1 CEU per week and 1 visitor a month. Your score is based on your 6-month cumulative average.

All things many of us had never considered, or had even heard of before March 15th. Some had different meanings. Corona? Beer, best served extra cold with LOTS of lime. Face covering? Only for doctors and nurses during surgery. Work from home? Meh, good for some people… not feasible for most, right? Zoom? What, are we all buying Mazdas now? (Is ZoomZoom even their catchphrase still?) We’ll get to BNI Online in just a minute…
Our world certainly took a big turn in the middle of March. A health concern that most of us probably thought wouldn’t arrive here in the United States suddenly became a BIG deal, impacting individuals and businesses in unprecedented ways. Every business had to decide what “essential” meant in their world, whether their services were essential, who was an essential worker, who could work from home – and what their business might look like in this new way of working.
