☛☛☛ 6 SHORT, EASY STEPS TO AWESOMENESS
Last month I wrote about the “best ever shortcut to solve business problems FAST”, about our “biases”. (http://seminar.com.au/linkedin-instant-improvement-tip-july-2014/)
This month, in this tiny space, let’s 80/20 some metaplanning.
Step 1. Decide that you both deserve and intend to have a great life. People DON’T get what they deserve – they get what they properly PLAN and resource.
Step 2. Figure out the difference between FEAR and DANGER so you can stop fighting yourself. Easy way – watch movie “After Earth”.
Step 3. Having decided you deserve and intend to have a great life – establish what that means in 3 categories: Health, Wealth & Happiness (HWH).
Then you decide on the coach “Hat” – the one that is in charge of ensuring HWH. For me it is a WISDOM hat. If my coach hat is “wise”, it balances my focus in the roles that produce HWH. Kind of a coach/designer.
Step 4. Choose ONE of HRH. With your WISE coach hat on, decide on the plan you will follow to deliver your life experience of that category.
Eg in Health – first choose the single most potent pathway to move your health towards ideal. For most people this will be about nutrition. Then the next most potent path, probably to do with dynamism (MOVEMENT!).
Repeat for Wealth/Business) & Happiness. So you end up with the Top 3 & Top 6 places to focus in each. Goal: get these done in the right balance given your resources.
Step 5. With “WISDOM” hat on, create a suitable ROSTER for investing your time (focus) on the Top 1 movement in each role. This is completely up to you. YOU choose. When you allocate time – you MUST meet that promise.
Eg FOCUS fully on the TOP 1 item for your Wealth Role for 1 FULL hour per day – you win big. Your wise coach oversees the actions, is reported to each day, reviews the wisdom of each strategy weekly & checks roster.
Step 6. Follow & Love your plan. Not rocket science.
Townsville based James Hooper: The term “rainmaker” is becoming regularly used in business context as someone whose role is to ‘make rain’ or ‘create growth’ in your business. In some senses the term ‘business coach’ is limiting as it is primarily about optimizing the effectiveness of the owner/operator. Sometimes the leverage is in the business systems rather than in the operator – and focus on that produces the preferred outcomes.
Business is a game, a puzzle, a tool to get you what you want in life. Call me for a second opinion (other than yours) on how to make your business give you what you want it to.
