The Power of A Plan

What would you would like to achieve in the next 12 months? Your chances of achieving these goals improve dramatically as soon as you write them down. Why?

  1. Writing down your goals forces you to clarify your thinking, visualize and prioritize exactly what you want. 
  2. A written plan allows you to share your ideas with others and gain their support.
  3. When you write down your goals, your attitude changes in a positive way. You feel more in con­trol. When your goals and plans are in writing you are 100% more likely to achieve them.

How To Plan

Start by having a look at where you are today. Are you happy? What’s going well, what needs improvement? Next, work out where you’d like to be in 12 months, 2 years or 5 years. Be bold, be specific. Now, map out the pathway that joins today with tomorrow.

Look at the basics – yourself, your product, your marketing, your team and your environment. Consider how to optimize each of these and write down the actions required. Pick a project to get started, set a timeframe and focus on getting it done. Not perfectly, just done!
