Hello class, today’s BOLD Law is…Focus on the Plan, not the Problem…What do you think when you hear this?
We all have plans, not just for our careers, but for our lives…for entreprenuer’s those plans likely look different than for most of the population. What are your plans? Your dreams? Is your plan to change jobs in 2016? Follow your passion into something new? Take the family on an amazing vacation? Do something just for you?
For a REALTOR® like myself, I create and follow a detailed business plan every year and I am fortunate to have a business coach to keep me on track. 2014…I hit my goal and basically stopped following my plan and 2015, while good, did not culminate in my reaching my goal and I learned…that I am the problem! I know what to do, I know what it takes, I just didn’t do it!
My biggest issue is keeping my energy level high enough to continue to work as hard as I do for my clients – I forgot about myself. I know I need time off…to spend with my family, my friends and frankly, myself, to read and relax. I built that time off into my plan for this year and it will be amazing! (Bonus, read the book The Power of Full Engagement to understand a little more)
2016 is about following my plan…things are a little behind, but I fully expect to catch up in the next 3 months. I need only 1 listing or 1 buyer appointment each week – that doesn’t seem so difficult does it? So remember me when if 2016 is about buying or selling a home for you!
What are your 2016 plans…remember, focus on that plan and the problems you feel are in the way will not be insurmountable.
