I will be launching a new service in January 2018 that will help you create clarity around your goals, certainty about what to do, and help you provide a greater impact on your work environment.
In the meantime, I’d like to share a free PDF containing a useful personal prioritization exercise to help you get started.
I hope you can join me on this journey!
This year, I’m spending December getting personally clear.
Why am I doing what I am doing?
What do I intend to accomplish?
How can I best serve my clients?
Over the past year, I have become convinced that personal planning may be the most important thing I can do – both for myself and for the people I serve.
By getting clear on myself, I’m better able to evaluate options and make decisions.
There’s an opportunity cost for each “Yes.”
That opportunity cost is not just financial.
It’s also in the activities you have to say “No” to because you’ve committed time and resources to the “Yes.”
So if I say “Yes” to something I’m meh about because I am bored or fearful – if a better, more aligned opportunity comes along, I can’t take it because I am already committed.
Saying “No” to a meh thing right in front of me takes quite a bit of trust that something better is going to come along.
It’s a tricky discipline. I find myself second-guessing and butting up against the “What if this is as good as it gets? What if this IS my best opportunity?” Then there are the gremlins disasterizing all of the possible negative scenarios if I say “No.”
And I don’t know about your gremlins – but mine are pretty loud. And look an awful lot like this guy…
Let’s spend this month getting our own house in order!
I’ll share some of the resources I’m using as I start planning for 2018.
