I have just come back from a 3 hour strategic planning session with a new 1:1 client. I absolutely love these sessions. While working through my process/framework for creating the big plan there are mini - clarity moments when the answer she had been searching for suddenly clicks into place. Doubt is replaced by clarity and confidence.
Not only did my client create her vision for her business/income generator but also the next 6 months of actions AND most importantly more detailed tasks for the next month.
From this she could then breathe. Before, without the plan she felt frantic, and then overwhelmed, energetic but didn't know the right action to prioritise, with lots of adhoc actions that felt like she was busy but nothing was happening. Or at least there were little quick wins but no long term gains.
Now, with her new strategy in place she knows exactly what she's selling, why, to whom and how many. She knows what marketing she is doing and what structural business processes she is creating in the next month and year.
She knows the legacy tasks she will start doing in the background to enable long term sustainability of her business as well.
It's freeing, it's relief, it's do-able. Anything else is solvable as it comes up. AND there are no distractions. With my Monthly Focus Block template she just needs to focus on one week of actions at a time.
This removes so much self-doubt, procrastination and overwhelm. AND it creates space for new ideas, strategic thinking and rest.
