Half Way Through 2010, How's That Workin For Ya?

Carra Riley offers some important reminders here. It's essential for a business owner to spend time planning, assessing, adjusting, modifying, and changing. It improves our business and ability to offer more and better service to our clients and customers.

Half Way Through 2010, How's That Workin For Ya?

Have you created some plans, set some objectives or identified goals for 2010 and are you on track?

The mid point of the year just past and it IS time to look at your strategy to assess how it is working.

                                   Chess

 

Looking at the 2010 plan:

  1. What is working?  Keep doing that!
  2. Do the financial outcomes need to be adjusted?
  3. What needs to be changed in the strategy to accomplish your objectives or goals?
  4. What is not working?  Stop doing it and take it off the list!
  5. Do you know what really makes you tick?  Is that your passion?
  6. Are you living your passion? 
  7. How can you live your passion? 
  8. Is Plan A really working?
  9. Could Plan B possibly be a much better alternative?

NOW is the perfect time to start to get a jump on 2011 and practice if you didn't have a plan.

Nothing gets better without practice.

Start with your specific values, then create a plan to get you where you want to go.

Value concepts to consider incorporating in the new direction:

  • Family
  • Health
  • Financial
  • Spiritual
  • Education
  • Retirement

If your family is important to you do you have all the school games or activities in your calendar, Birthdays, Anniversaries, vacation?  If family is your priority then make them first on the list of things to do.  Make these days or times NON NEGOTIABLE Items.

Is Health important to you?  Does exercise fit into your game plan to achieve better movement or weight?  Put it on the calendar and stick to the plan. 

It is your life so take control and have your activities reflect what is important to you.  

Do you need to prospect to find more buyers?  What is your plan?  

Here  is a "Cow Tip" from Carra: Last week I walked down Rt. 66 with a flyer on my new listing describing a great financing opportunity with Bond Money in Arizona where a buyer can get in with as little as $1,000 down.

I have two buyer prospects from doing the basics. Eyeball to eyeball seeing the people!  What did they like?  The fact the home had the special financing, a huge detached garage along with the fact I was out on the street selling real estate. 

STOP now.  Write in a specific time to assess what you need to do today. this week, this month and the rest of the year.

You are in charge of you and your time!  Don't ever be fooled into thinking you can't say "NO, not now, it works better for me at this time." Think about how you wait for an attorney, a doctor or an accountant.  Busy people have time schedules and they stick to them working clients in in the slots they have available.

Get a partner to be accountable to! 

If you create the plan you need to WORK the plan and make sure you stay on track!

                                                   Bright colors

                                                       Celebrate planned direction!

Lottie ~  You are so right on!  "It's essential for a business owner to spend time planning, assessing, adjusting, modifying, and changing. It improves our business and ability to offer more and better service to our clients and customers."   Thank you for the reblog and sharing your journey too!  How was the Library?

I like the way Carra lays it out: if it's working, keep doing that. It's sort of like going fishing. I once had a guy try to move the boat on me. It was like, hey, they're biting so let's go somewhere else. What the? No, let's stay right here and reel 'em in.

Carra -- I'm having a wonderful R&R (review and reflection) day here at the SF library. Hope to write a post about it before I leave this afternoon -- time for a lunch break right now!

Elizabeth, you're right. And if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But--we have to take the time to know what's working and what needs shaking up.
