It is Sunday AM here and I am sitting at my kitchen table thinking about my goals for the week. I always do it before the kids get up on Sunday because it really does crush the anxiety of the upcoming week. But honestly I wouldn't be able to get up early everyday if I didn't have something I was passionate about working towards.
...Are you are dreaming of the day when you can actually take your hobby or passion and turn it into a profitable online business? Or maybe just do something different than where you are at now? I have been thinking about this a lot lately because as a corporate strategist I have all kinds of tools and systems I go through to help large Fortune-500 companies crush their goals. But when I started my online wellness business...well I just jumped in headfirst.
These are 3 things I wish I would have done at the beginning....And the nice thing is. You can apply it to just about anything!
1) TAKE TIME TO SET YOUR VISION. It doesn't have to be an all out business plan and it is not your pretty vision board. It is a detailed outline of things like... What are your personal goals? How do you know if you will be successful? Who are you trying to reach? And if they work with you, what will they get?
2) SET ASIDE TIME TO WORK ON YOUR GOALS. You all know I am obsessed with time blocking. But when are you going to work on this project? It should be scheduled just like a workout or an appointment. And you should know each time you have a time block what you are doing to move the needle forward. So many people I work with just try to "fit it in" including myself at the beginning and then you are stuck on your phone or in a constant panic all day. Be intentional. And truth be told, life takes over and this gets put in the backseat. Again.
3) FIND SUPPORT. And this does not have to be hiring an assistant or spending $$. This can be pairing up with a friend who is doing something similar. Joining a coaching group. Or asking someone to mentor you that has done it before. You have to have someone to bounce ideas off of. Working in a vacuum is not going to get you very far. I always say it isn't hard (we all can find a few hours a day if we really prioritize), but it isn't easy! Which is why you need goals, a system, and the support!
