Start Your 2015 Success Now!  
~~30 action steps to take in December to
make sure you start 2015 off with confidence~~

Sunday, December 7, 2014

I am thrilled to let you know because you are a SavvyBIZ newsletter subscriber and/or a SavvyBIZ Place member you will be getting one action step a day from me in December to make sure you start 2015 off with confidence in your business and yourself!

Every day in December (I will take Christmas off!) I will send you an action step you can easily do that day. If you do each step every day you will be so on top of your office, your time management, your finances, your mindset,  and your business you will start 2015 with amazing confidence!

I suggest you make an e-mail folder called "Success 2015" where you can keep all of the e-mails and can access them easily in the future.  
Action Step #7:  Schedule or Be Lost
The movie, City Slickers, has a lot of great quotes and one of my favorites comes from the scene when Ed and Phil are riding horses and herding cattle. After many mishaps things are finally going well.  At one point Ed shouts to Phil- "Hey, Phil, we're doing it.  We're driving them."  Phil shouts back "Ah, that's perfect! We're lost but we're making good time."


Have you ever felt this way in your office? At 5:00 you look back on your day and realize how busy you were but you really can't pinpoint one thing you got done.

You are lost - but making really good time.

But, here is an important truth - life isn't about making good time - it's about the time you are making.
The key is to plan ahead.  Sunday is the perfect day to look ahead to your week and make sure you are not only scheduling what you have to get done but also what you want to get done.

I've used my Outlook calendar for years and it syncs beautifully with my iPhone. It works. But, there was something missing. I was only looking day to day - not thinking ahead about the entire week.  And, I didn't have a good system for all the action steps associated with my projects.

Enter the Planner Pad suggested by one of my wonderful coaching clients. The beauty of the Planner Pad is I can keep track of all my projects by categories and then funnel the action steps down by day and then make appointments. 

There's something about planning on paper that really works. I can then transfer those appointments to Outlook but I am now owning what I want to get done.

Tell me - will you be lost this next week or making sure you are accomplishing what you want to do to move your life and business forward?

Excuse me while I now go plan for this upcoming week!
What are you waiting for, Kim?

Love this!
No one accomplishes anything great alone!  Is it time to work with a business coach?

I am SO glad to be working with you, Elizabeth. If it was not for you, I would have surely closed my business at the end of this year. Now - I have workshops, classes, speaking gigs and possibilities already in
the new year. 

Thank you so much for what you do...even if you did force me out of my sweats to go to an expo!
