Revv It Up: Bigger Thinking = Better Results

By Linsibrownson @CleverSpark

So who did the Interview exercise?

I’m super excited about this series because, just from planning it I’m already way more focused and energized for next year.

But I want to know if it’s helping YOU – so I have an idea:  Each week I’m asking that you leave your feedback in the comments below.  Good, bad and otherwise.  For each comment you’ll get one entry into a drawing that I will do at the end of this 8 week series.

Winner gets a choice between:

A 30 Minute mini brainstorm session on whatever you want to talk about (marketing, product or service ideas, troubleshooting, etc.) – with me.

Now that we got that out of the way, the next step is to determine where you want to go.

I want you to sit or lay down, take a few deeps breaths, and begin to imagine yourself 1 year in the future.

With this visualization, we’re going to assume that you have been kicking ass all year long – and have accomplished exactly what you wanted to.

The question is:

WHAT DO YOU WANT to accomplish in the next year?

Think as big as you possibly can – don’t limit yourself to what’s likely to happen or what “would be nice”…

Bigger Thinking = Better Results

I’m not the first to tell you this, I am simply reminding you.

Revv It Up: Bigger Thinking = Better Results

After a few minutes of blissful contemplation, make a bullet list of the key elements like

  • How much business you want (# clients or sales per month/year)
  • What your role in the company is
  • How many hours you want to work each week
  • How many people work for & with you

Did you break a sweat on that?

If not, maybe you need a little more of a challenge… say, a 5 Year Dream?  I’ve got just the thing.  It’s an ILWE worksheet – Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, Equity.  Download it here.

TIP: Don’t tell anyone about your dream just yet.  But DO keep it in your mind over the next few weeks.  Get comfortable with it – Let it sink in a bit and make sure it feels right.

Because next time we’ll start turning that dream into reality. Get the complete series delivered to your inbox!
