I was visiting Abby in Houston and spent part of an afternoon sitting by the pool doing some writing for future blog posts and this newsletter. Being outside, enjoying the view of the pool, and feeling the sun on my face helped my brain to start firing on all cylinders and ideas flowed freely. Funny what can happen when I get out of my office and get outside.
I heard a loud sound, looked up, and saw a jet fly overhead. As I was looking up at the airplane from my view on the ground I started thinking about the view from an airplane. When you are at 30,000 feet looking down it’s a whole different view than when you’re on the ground.
What is your view when you are in your office?
Do you get caught up with the administrative tasks instead of the tasks that will move your business forward?
Do you keep doing the same marketing strategies even though they are not getting you the results you’d like?
When was the last time your wrote down you 30 day, 90 day, 12 month, 5 year, and 10 year goals? When was the last time you looked at them?!
Perhaps it’s time for a new view. Time for a 30,000 perspective. We can be so busy working in the stuff we need to do for our business it’s hard to see the big picture.
Ready to take action?
Please take these action steps to get connected to what you really want to do in your business. The best place to do this is out of your office.
1. Why did you start your business in the 1st place? Write this down in CAPITAL letters! Is what you are doing now keeping you true to your passion or have the ‘bright shiny objects’ taken over?
2. Make a Will-Do List: Write down what you want to accomplish in the next 30 days, the next 90 days, the next 12 months, the next 5 years, and the next 10 years for your business (and you can included personal goals). Is what you are writing down allowing you to share your passion with others or are you writing down things that will sidetrack you? Make sure you are writing down what you WANT to do.
3. Put your Will-Do List in a prominent place where you can see it every day. Put the items in your calendar as appointments to make sure you get them done.
4. Now take action!
I’m here to help:
If you will e-mail me at Elizabeth@ElizabethHagen.com your will-do list in the next 7 days I will gift you a 30-minute phone call where I’ll review your list and give you some tips and tools to accomplish them.
