I’m going to go there! I’m sorry, but it just has to be done. There are just 13 weeks until Christmas 2016! CRAZY right? What’re the last 3 months of 2016 looking like for you? Is strategy working in achieving all that you set out to achieve this year personally and professionally? If the answer is no, there’s no need to panic. There’s still time to do it.
If you take some time out of your crazy week to strategically think about your business, I bet you could list down everything you wanted to achieve this year. I bet if you looked hard enough it may even be written down somewhere on a piece of paper, or in a note on your phone or a document on your computer. Maybe the bit that’s been unclear throughout this year is the ‘how’ you were going to get all these things done.
Imagine turning up to the airport tomorrow to go on that overseas holiday destination you selected but having no idea of which carrier you were flying with. Eeeek! Pretty scary thought right, yet that’s what so many of us continue to do with our business.
This is what it’s like for so many business owners I speak to, they know what they want to achieve or the direction they want their business to head but have no clear plan or strategy how they are going to get it there.
Here’s one thing I know to be absolutely true, winging it is NOT a strategy! Winging it is a time waster and fast way to lose precious time and profitability. A plan will lead you to profits far faster and with less time required.
So let’s do this! Remember, any good plan starts with a decision, so decide what are the must-do priorities for the next 12 weeks (let’s face it, the week leading up to Christmas is a write-off….. way too many functions and celebrations to enjoy, or if you are in retail then things are just crazy busy!)
Next thing to think about is your strategy, what’s your solution for how you get from where you are right now in your business to where you want to be by Christmas. Once this is identified, it’s time to make a plan on how you are going to get there. Remember, your strategy is the way you want to do it and your plan is going to map out how you are going to do it.
Imagine what Christmas 2016 feels like when you’ve finished the year achieving everything you set out to! How awesome is that going to feel?
I can teach you all the tools to strategise and plan to end the year with a bang and don’t get me wrong, plans and strategies are great, but they are absolutely worthless without great execution.
Coincidently, 12 weeks is exactly the amount of time it takes to complete one of my 3 Month Mentoring Programs which is all about execution and accountability. So if you want clarity, support and accountability in the execution of rolling out the final 3 months of 2016 then get in touch!
