Thought (Action) For The Month

Below is an exercise that I have all new coaching clients complete.

Its purpose should be self explanatory, and if taken seriously will stimulate thinking and engage the Reticular Activator. I include it here and hope that you will take the time to complete it.

Should you choose to do this exercise, here are a couple of helpful hints:

  1. 1
    Write your answers in long hand on a yellow legal pad because there is a certain neural activity that is stimulated in the brain when you do this versus writing on a computer.
  2. 2
    Once you complete your first draft, do the exercise again. Rinse and repeat at least 5 times to embed this vision in the subconscious part of your brain.
  3. 3
    Repeat this exercise monthly for an entire year. If you do this you will find that you are adding new stuff and deleting old stuff as you go. This is the brain’s way of generating clarity of vision.

Business Vision Exercise

Visualize your Business as you would like for it to be. Start by thinking of how you would like to be spending your time. Of all the kinds of work you could be doing, what do you want to do the most? How many hours do you want to work each week, and how would you like to divide up your working time?

Then think about what kind of people you would like to interact with. Who are your ideal clients, customers, colleagues and employees?

Next, imagine the physical environment in which you would like your business to operate. What would it look like? How large a space would you want? What would it look and feel like? What level of business would you have? How much revenue and profits? How many clients, billable hours etc. would you have? What would be the mix of clients or services that you would provide?

Write your answers in present tense. Don't worry if your picture isa little fuzzy or you can't answer all of the questions.

We are striving for process not perfection. Just do it!
