Being a creative & being the usual rushing women….Which lets face it isn’t the best mix in biz or life in that matter! What will help you stay focused & actually be of more use to you is…Having a plan.
I saw that eye roll too by the way!
To us creatives & ideas people you feel the same way about sitting down and doing your tax return…Grab some forks and poke yourself in the eyes right!
For me the frustrating part was never finishing anything. Not knowing what was coming up, what I was doing from one week to the next. Gosh some days I would turn up to my desk and accomplish nothing…Then beat myself up. I thought it was cool NOT having a plan… I was rebelling. Actually I thought having a plan was a sign of weakness, for sissys and geeks….Just being HONEST!
I am the first to admit that I was wrong. By continually not committing and finishing.. like a damn junkie! I found myself losing momentum, and leads starting to dry up. And I would blame other things, people hahaha! No way I am 100% responsible.
By grounding yourself with a plan you can actually be very flexible. Plans don’t have to be BORING yahoo! If you have written a plan before but not stuck to it, guaranteed it is because you are fully connected to it…That is where you gotta put the work in first girlfriend. What you NOT being open to, or committing to?
When you full believe in what you are doing, but most importantly believe in yourself. You create a plan, an ongoing vessel that actually fuels you. Exciting eh!
Your vision & mission, your money goals shouldn’t be reviewed yearly or monthly but everyday…WTH! They are most powerful when threaded & woven within your daily working life.
None of this will actually matter if you are only going through the motions.
Many of you have asked me to lead a planning power session…So here it is.
This isn’t the kind of planning session for a left-brained, nuts and bolts detailed junkie…My style WILL drive you batty.
This IS for those of you who want to fully commit to your biz, it’s true message & to make an impact with your mission.
