Apr 18, 2020

Life doesn’t usually go as planned. We don’t put “big mistakes” in our three year plans. And NO ONE had “global pandemic” in their business model for 2020. But this doesn’t mean we forget we have a business to run and mouths to feed. Tough things happen and the tough power through them. The economy has been battered. Most of us are staying home. Business is definitely NOT normal. This is a good time to reflect on our goals for 2020 - how they have been affected, how our priorities might have changed, and what we need to try to accomplish for the remainder of this year. On this call we are going to talk about what we need to be thinking about and planning to get us there. 

Lewis Carroll said, “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” In his inimitable style, Yogi Berra said “If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.” Let’s start laying the groundwork to not end up “someplace else.” 

Let’s rethink our priorities, reset our goals, and renew our commitments to get there. I’ll be sharing with you some of the goal setting secrets behind my book, “GMS Planner”. I will show you pages from the Quarterly Planning Retreat, and then let everyone on the call download them and do their own “retreat”. You’ll learn:

-to celebrate everything you can - including the lessons learned through difficulties and challenging times.

-the value of adjusting course. Life throw’s curve balls, we adjust our swing and still get base hits. 

-how to break down our goals into manageable milestones.

-how to translate those milestones into action steps 

I’m also going to give you the weekly planning page I use to manage all of my business and income streams. No April Fools joke here - it’s yours for just listening in. and click on the GMS Offer Button.
