Yay! One more Chance to Review Your BUSINESS PLAN!
Business Planning for 2020 – AND Lunch!
Yes, I know, the year has started. However, maybe your plan never got fully fleshed out. Maybe something has happened in the last few weeks and you need to revise your plan. Or maybe you didn’t get the time you needed to plan.
Now’s your chance! Wednesday 1/22/2020 from 11:30-1:30pm. (and it includes lunch!)
You may never got the time to sit down and plan. As human beings we are not wired to sitting down and “planning.” Nor are we wired to “follow a plan.” However, consider that many agents have the following “goals” for this year:Generate more salesMake more moneyHave more time offNone of those outcomes – and that is what they are – will happen by themselves. They all are a result of some other action(s) that was taken repeatedly throughout the year. You can’t wake up today and schedule the activity, “generate more sales.” You can schedule an activity that leads to more sales, like, “Call 10 people in my database and check in with them.”
You also cannot “have more time off.” I mean, you can. But how much time? When do you want/need that time off? Do you need two weeks off all at once – or do you want to have two full days off a week? Do you want to work really hard in the spring, and take time off in the summer? Either way, you have do decide what that means, then schedule the activity (or lack of activity in this case 🙂
You heard me say all this last month/year. If you are still reading its because you didn’t quite get it all figured out.
Starting off the year is a lot like starting off the day. Do you wake up a little late, a little panicked, and feeling like you are behind? Do you check your messages and then respond to what is in front of you? Do you often feel like you are at the whim of the people in your life?Or…Do you wake up at the same time every day?Do you have a plan for the day that you follow?Regardless of how much business or activity is in front of you, are you able to feel peace and ease throughout the day because you have a plan and system for having things handled?
The same thing can be said to your year. Abraham Lincoln was quoted as saying:“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I
will spend the first four sharpening the ax.”
There is too much coming at you. This is not about doing more, it is about doing less. Most people do not want to take the time and effort ahead of time to do the difficult work of thinking, reflecting, and planning. However, what’s available from doing this activity: ease, calm, grace.
If you don’t have your plan finalized for the year, or if you need some tweaking, would it be a bad idea to take two hours next week to get this handled?
