Planning for success often gets less prep time than the time we make to plan vacations. Business Owners-Leaders, this is your chance to look at what you really do. Think of an upcoming vacation you are taking or just took. Did you plan out some wonderful things to experience? Even if you built flexibility into your plan, did you always know what you were doing throughout your trip? Sure you did! And I imagine that when you actually did planning, you accomplished much more, and called it a “good vacation”.
“I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacations
better than the plan their lives. Perhaps that is because
escape is easier than change.”
BRILLIANT BREAKTHROUGHS BIG QUESTION:
Do you plan for success each week to support your business’s success?
BRILLIANT BREAKTHROUGHS BIG TIP:
Notice or reflect upon how you develop a vacation plan. Oversimplified: you probably start with some research, make a commitment, set the timeline, confirm the timeline, and plan all the activities to deliver the end game: successful vacation. How is planning for success of your business and a great vacation different?
When you plan for anything to be success you have a process. Most likely, you do what Stephen R. Covey has taught us, “Begin with the end in mind.” You determine what to make happen and who or what will play a role/part in accomplishing your goal. Then you figure when is the best time to complete each of the activities. Usually at the end of the day you reflect if you accomplished your goal or not. You might even reflect upon better ways to complete your goal if it’s a longer project.
Did you ever think you’d see a “planning for success warning”? Well, and I don’t get why people aren’t talking about it more! There is a sequence to success. If you don’t know the sequence you can get lucky and still become successful. It will probably take longer and be more frustrating. If you do know the proper sequence to success you will experience less frustration, complete less busy work, and experience peace-filled prosperity more swiftly.
