Happy Wednesday! How are you? Ready for Part 2 of the “Back to the Future” journey? Yes?! Well, let’s go!
In last week’s blog I summed up my life/business/career reflections and re-evaluations not just from the last year but for over the last 40 years hoping to inspire you to do the same. Hopefully, you discovered some overlooked, yet, amazing realizations as I did. I admitted, however, that despite all that positive discovery, I still had some resetting to do. So, we began to reset during last Saturday’s show by looking at “the why”? Why do you want to be what you want to be; do what you want to do; achieve what you want to achieve? Why? If you missed it, be sure to check it out on the YouTube channel.
Alright, now that you have your reflections and have become even more inspired by re-visiting your “Why?”, let’s get more concrete by answering two additional questions. Where are you (personally and professionally)? And, where do you want to be one year from today? Not “where” as in location but “where” as in accomplishments, goals, and achievements. Here’s a couple of very basic examples– personally, right now, I consume roughly 12 ounces of soft drinks per week. One year from now, I’d like to be consuming 12 ounces of soft drinks per month. (Side note: 10 years ago, I was consuming 12 ounces per day!) *Thank God for progress* Another example, professionally, today my business functions as a “d/b/a”. One year from now, I’d like for my business to be incorporated. For you, maybe your “where” is bigger. Today your business grosses 1 million per year. One year from now, you want it to gross 2 million per year. Easy breezy, right? It could be. Just pace yourself.
Once you have your “wheres” answered, map out a plan that will get you from point a (now) to point b (one year from now). Next, you have to “work” that plan but stay open for divine intervention and perhaps even re-direction. I’ll continue to check in and share with you via this blog, the show, and other ways as we continue on this faith journey. In the meantime, I’ve got a class to check into; a song to sing; and a green tea drink to consume! ; )
