NOW IT’S TIME TO ACT

Plan, Act, Reflect, Repeat series: Part 2

How have you done?

Are you ready to take your business to the next level ?   It is never to late to start reflecting and planning for the next 12 – 24 months.

PLANNING is a big part of pushing any business forward and I find it  quiet exciting as new ideas have time to form and we start putting things together ready Planning is the key to success !

Act, the next stage.

Now is the time to STOP and re-focus.  Look at your top 3 goals again and ACT on them NOW.  Not later NOW – even if it is just breaking them down into smaller chunks and ticking off the first action.  When you start doing this you will feel as though you are moving in the right direction ranther than getting to the end of your working day (I know, I know!) and feeling as though you have not achieved what you were hoping to.

How do you do this?

We find that by setting a timer for just 1 hour first thing in the morning helps focus our minds on our priority tasks and therefore we are (hopefully) always slowly moving in the right direction.

Grab your diary!

  • Write down all the things you HAVE to do today.
  • Number them in order of importance
  • Then work through them
  • Set the timer for each task – a maximum of 1 hour for each task and then FOCUS until the task is either complete OR the timer goes off and then …

Go and get a cup of tea !

Would you benefit from working and chatting with other like minded designers in a closed facebook group?

Practice things, ask those really silly embarrassing questions that we think we should know but don’t and have someone that will hold you accountable when you don’t do the things that you keep saying you will?  Comments would be greatly appreciated – tell us how we can help you and we will do our best to find a solution.
