I’m headed home from Hawaii tomorrow. Last week my hubby and I were at a marketing conference in LA. Since we were on the west coast (we live on the east coast) we thought we would take advantage of it by hopping over to Hawaii for a mini-vacation… and I am SO glad we did!
We got the rest and rejuvenation we needed, and LOVED Hawaii. You can see pics over on my Instagram page.
I picked up a few golden marketing nuggets from the conference, which I’ll be sharing with you in upcoming weeks… stay tuned.
In today’s post, I’m sharing my 3-step system for reaching BIG goals without getting overwhelmed.
1. Decide where you want to be at the end of next year. Compose a year-end vision of your life and business, and include specific goals in your vision.
2. Map out what you need to accomplish THIS quarter in order to move your business/life one-quarter of the way towards your vision. Repeat at the beginning of each quarter, moving closer to your vision.
3. Create a list of specific action steps that you need to take THIS month. Schedule time in your calendar to complete your action steps this month. Repeat at the beginning of each month.
I recommend planning only one quarter and one month at a time because soooo much changes. If you map out your whole year, you will have wasted your time because you inevitably correct your course throughout the year. You will probably be off in the wilderness if you stick to your initial plan.
Some things won’t go as well as planned and you’ll be presented with new opportunities that are not yet on your radar. Have a year-end vision, but break it down in month-by-month action steps.
The CRITICAL component to this 3-step system is to SCHEDULE time to complete your action steps. Life is busy and it’s probably not going to slow down anytime soon. If you don’t have your action steps scheduled, I can almost promise you that you won’t reach your goals.
Love & Success,
