If you are in business and are feeling overwhelmed, overworked and stressed out, then maybe its time to take a step back and take a good look at why you are in this place. It will also help you to get some perspective.
When working with clients, we use the following formula to help them get some definition, some direction and some focus.
Dream x Goal x Plan x Action
1. Dream – Take the time to think big, what do you really from from your life and your business – be specific. Think long term like 5 to 10 Years.
2. Goal – to help you achieve your dreams, what specific goals would you need to set to ensure that you are on the right journey – These are like milestones and are between 3 months to 3 years away. Again be as specific as you can
3. Plan – every business needs a plan yet so few ever write a plan after the first few months of business. A plan in more about the process of thinking and writing and sharing than the actual document that you produce but it causes you to ask “how to” or “how can I” questions. Again it helps to keep the daily challenges in perspective.
4. Act – Often where most people struggle – working their plan. What tasks will you do in your business every day that will help you move towards your goals and achieve the tasks in your plan. How will you recover from setbacks. How disciplined will you be.
If your dreams really inspired you and your goals were clear, your actions on a daily basis would have more purpose and conviction. Start today
