Plan It and You Can Have It

It’s time to get ready! What do you want? What is missing in your life... fun, a connection with your family, or financial freedom and well-being? What are you committed to? Where do you want to be in your life by this time next year? Maybe most importantly, do you have an outrageous, full and complete plan for living a balanced life? Let’s take a look at why a written plan is the key to having it all, and I mean it ALL.

My goals list concepts of target and objectiveWhen you write your plan, you will see what you do not know about the plan you are writing. Write down the plan for what you want in all domains of your life—vibrant health, business success, effective marketing, a fun and fulfilling personal, spiritual, and family life, and financial well-being. The process will provide you with the opportunity to discover what you don't know, the answers, and create the best plan of action based upon those answers, before the plan is set in motion.

A written plan points the way to success. Without a written plan, your actions will tend to be random and subject to derailment at the smallest “bump in the road” or distraction along the way.

You, your family and your business team need to know what the plan is and by-when. For any plan to be successful it must be fully communicated to every person involved in the plan’s implementation, and the most efficient and effective means of doing so is to write the plan down! As the story goes, God didn’t just tell Moses about the Ten Commandments...He wrote them in stone!

—to create what you picture in your mind, you must write it in your plan. Written goals produce results. If you see yourself and your company as being healthy, happy, and successful and you write it in a plan that keeps you focused, then you and your company will become healthy, happy and successful! If you imagine yourself and your company as failing, and have no written plan for anything else, you will fail. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail!

Saying you want success is not enough. You have to truly desire to be successful. So, focus, write the plan, and then live it. You have to really want what you want and be willing to be held accountable for getting it!

An outrageous and profitable future is within your reach. It’s up to you. What do you choose? Go ahead...finish your plan and feel confident that a well thought out and fully communicated, written plan is the key to your having it all—fun, family, and financial freedom.

Happy planning to you, and if you need help along the way, give me a call at (406) 587-7482 or send me an email: I would love to hear what’s up for you and where you want to go. Let’s see if we are a fit working together… or not.  If we are, let’s start playing!
