Failing To Plan Is Planning To Fail

Do you have a clear vision in mind when it comes to your business?


Do you know what you need to do in order to reach or achieve that vision?


The most common thing I see in business, is a business owner, like yourself, with a grand vision or goal… That’s dated about 5 years in the future.
Or even one year!


And the reality is, that’s just too far away!


Let’s say you have a goal to turn over half a million in revenue a year in 5 years time.

But right now, you’re only making $1000 a week.


It can be a bit hard to imagine how you’re going to go from $1000 a week to $10,000 a week.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s totally doable, but that’s a fairly big jump from where you are to where you want to be. And the problem with that is, it’s really hard to stay motivated when you don’t feel like you’re getting any closer to your goal.


Having a goal isn’t the same as having a plan.

Having a plan is a ROAD MAP to achieving your goal.

It’s your goal broken down into bite sized chunks. ACHIEVABLE CHUNKS that get you closer and closer to your big goal.


Did you know it’s actually proven that the human brain can not stay focused on ONE THING for more than 90 days. So if you’re not kicking some kind of goal in that 90 days, it’s a pretty sure guarantee that you wont stay motivated enough to achieve the big 5 year goal (or even one year goal).


By failing to have a plan in place, you’re actually planning to fail.

No one plans to fail consciously.


One of the most important things a business owner can do is actually take time to think strategically and make a plan. Sure, you’re not working on clients so that time isn’t making you money in the moment, but you’ll see how much it pays off when every single day you wake up knowing what it is you have to work on to get you closer to that 90 day goal you have set.


And that kind of clarity eliminates procrastination and maximises the amount of time you have in your day to actually produce profit!


Creating a plan every year and revisiting it every 90 days is VITAL if you want a successful business and want to stay on target for your big goal.


The thing is, the how can change. Sometimes the big goal can change and that’s totally OK.

But if you’re taking action that is focused on growth and have a clear plan in place, you are guaranteed to WIN.


So, do you have a plan in place for your business?

Is it crystal clear?
