What’s the secret to having an amazing year?
Planning to succeed.
It sounds obvious, right? In order to succeed, you need to have a plan. You know better than to rely on luck alone.
However, way too many entrepreneurs neglect the planning step.
They’re overwhelmed as it is, and they feel that if they simply stop for twenty minutes to get organized, everything will fall apart around them.
Confession: I have sooo been here before!
And let me tell you, the idea that everything will come crashing down if you pause to get organized is not even remotely true. Even twenty minutes of planning will save you so much time in the long run because you won’t have to course correct later.
Aim, then shoot.
No matter how busy you are, always plan your next steps. Even twenty minutes of planning will save you so much time in the long run because you won’t have to course correct later! Click To Tweet
I’m glad that I’ve made planning a vital step in my business processes. I’ve been in business for over a decade, and let me tell you, I’ve tried enough things to find out what works and what doesn’t. (For me and my business anyway.)
I’ve picked up some tricks and tools for planning an amazing year, and I want to share them with you in case they’re a good fit!
I recently discussed some of these tips on the Sound Advice podcast with my longtime friend and colleague, the incomparable Phyllis Nichols.
Listen in to hear the steps I use to reflect on my past year, plan my upcoming year, break my big goals into pieces, and the resources I use to do it.
I’m challenging you to do what it takes to make this your most productive year ever!
