We just hosted a weekend mastermind session for our clients, focussing for much of that time on reviewing their businesses for the first half of 2009 and creating a strategic plan for Q3 and 4.
Some of my insights from the weekend (short list):
Need to get away from the business to SEE my buisness…
I won’t take the time to do it if I’m not pushed…
Too easy to get mired in the DOINGness of the business.
There is a clear, repeatable pattern to fine-tune your business and course correct as you go… here is the layout of the pattern we used:
Getting clear on exactly what business you want to be building… what is your target Laying out the terrain (obstacles and opportunities)
Creating your strategy (from where you are to get to where you want to go, taking into consideration the terrain your business is traveling through)
Layout the landmarks and milestones
Create your 90 day strategic focuses (max of 3) It doesn’t take more time to build your business… it takes you refocussing your time to invest it where it will make a bigger difference for your business.
So, all you business owners out there…
I am urging you to step back from your business ,take stock, and clarify your plan for the balance of the year (and beyond.)
