The Four Critical Steps To Plan A Spectacular Year


WELCOME to the initial Four Steps of your design process.  Now you can begin.  We recommend  bookmarking this page so you can come back to it if you don't finish this process all at once.  Plan a minimum of an hour, in a quiet, comfortable place, to get through these Four Steps.  REMEMBER, If you have a clearly defined plan at the beginning of your year, you have a much greater chance of achieving it.

Here you go.... 

1) Figure out what you’re working on right now.  It’s important to know your starting point.  It’s easy to simply work on everything that comes along and demands your time and attention.  However, if you think about the activities and projects you are engaged in, some are necessary to maintain your business and life, while others are designed to build something new.  Examples of building something new are launching a new website, designing a new product, doubling sales, starting a master swimming program, taking up mountain climbing.

2) Resolve your failed expectations.  I’ve been working with business clients for over 30 years and most people I’ve worked with over-estimate and are too optimistic about what they have the capacity to achieve.  You have probably fallen short of your expectations for the year. You cannot move on to designing next year without coming to terms with where you’ve fallen short.  It’s simple

Make a list of areas where you’ve fallen short

Think about the list and let it go.

3) Where do you want to be 10 years from now?  If you set out on a journey and you don’t know where you are headed it’s going to be difficult to arrive in the right place.  Many people overlook this step saying it’s too far in the future or it’s just a dream.  Consider that each year of your life is a major stepping-stone towards the future you want.  If you don’t know what that future is, it will be difficult if not impossible to plan and be on track for it. 

4) Scale it and condition it so you don’t set yourself up to fail.  Not scaling and conditioning your plans is the most common mistake that people make when setting goals.  Just because you think you want something and write it down, even if it’s a well-crafted goal, it doesn’t mean you will be able to achieve it within the time you’ve set.  Scaling has to do with the size of the goal. 

Conditioning has to do with resourcing your goal. 

Now you are on your way!

To Get A Clearer Idea About Your Personal Destiny, I recommend reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It's a fascinating story about an Andalusian shepherd boy who sets out on a quest to discover his purpose, the meaning of life and ultimately his destiny.  It has inspired us to think about our own personal destiny, the larger view of our life.  We are referring to a created personal destiny not what we think of as predetermined.   It's good to be headed in a direction that feels right and inspires us.
