Planning Tip #2: Create a Plan that Inspires You!


Worksheet examplesI love that Friday energy… we typically have a more relaxed approach to the day.

I find when I’m in that relaxed mode I always get ideas and inspiration for my life and business.

That approach works so much better towards my productivity than nose to the grindstone and beating myself up with the proverbial whip!


I remember my days in corporate when I was the VP of Marketing for a big shopping center developer. Every year, for each of the 50+ shopping malls we managed, we had to create a business plan and a marketing plan for each center. It was a grueling six week experience with 10-hour days sitting at the computer behind closed doors and endless input, approvals and revisions.

I had to review each one of those… 100 plans over 10 years… that’s over 1000 plans.

That’s a lotta plans.

I wish I had a picture of my bookcase with 100 business and marketing plans each in their white 6-inch binders all lined up.

And you know what… that’s where they sat all year.
