I am in Montreal today, leading my Momentum group. We are having one of our Reflect, Recharge, and Refocus days, where we realign what’s been going on for the last quarter, and we refocus on what’s coming up in the next quarter.
I have been leading a couple workshops now with the book Productive, and I notice one common thing: People are not actually writing in the book. They’re writing on sticky notes and then sticking them in the book.
I stopped my last workshop and asked the group, Why are you not writing in your planner? Why are you not committing to what these goals are? The answer was unanimous.
Watch to find out.
Life happens. Things come up.
Commit to what that vision is and put pen to paper and see it written there, staring at you. If it invokes a whole bunch of emotions, then let’s talk about that and figure out what it’s triggering in you.
People are not wanting to make their planners look messy but productivity is messy. There are things that happen. Lines go through. Arrows point. Things get crossed off. We refocus, rejig, try something new. There is no linear path to you getting to what it is that you want. It’s not a tidy, colorful stream of written words.
Commit to that vision that you want.
Put it in your book, in pen, so that you can’t erase it.
If you need to refocus, because that’s what we do every 90 days, then know that that is A-OK, because that is a part of the journey and that’s why we work in quarterly chunks.
That’s why every 90 days we’re going to go back and do this reflect and then refocus so that we can make sure that we are on the best path for us.
So my word to you this week is COMMIT. Take your planner, whether it’s Productive or whatever else you’re using, and commit to that vision that you have for you in your business a year from now, and let’s just be tracking and being aware of what it’s triggering in you and why it’s making you want to just write it on a sticky.
Success is not going to happen on a series of stickies.It’s going to happen from deeply committed #powermoves that you are going to make each and every week.Click to tweet
