Regarding my problem with future financial security I’ve organised to meet with two of the most successful business people I know over lunch this weekend to have a conversation around strategies to increase wealth.
Regarding my problem with continuous earnings, I will review all my different sources with my family this month.
Regarding my (#1 problem) ….
My problem is that I get annoyed and bewildered in the mornings , because I usually feel so rushed. As ever ,i don’t have enough time for other priorities.
I will PTO by:
• arranging to get my priorities right;
• planing to spend 80% of my available time dealing with my current top priorities;
• Creating more stable home and office environments.
Regarding my problem of thinking what will happen in my job in future I will PTO by practicing gratitude and let go and do my best now and enjoy the slow time leading up to holidays !
Regarding the business problem, I will PTO conceptualizing, marketing, meeting more people and talking to them about the importance of thinking and creativity development.
Peeling the orange that is my business I will start working on my marketing strategy immediately and will have a workable outline by 12/05/17. I will create a list of goals and criteria for my marketing strategy and outline steps that will most likely lead me to be able to generate more leads for my business. I will document step by step the process of the lead generation so this process can be studied and improved. I will outline key metrics that will be monitored in order to measure my marketing effectiveness. I will create a mind map that will help me visualize the entire process and tweak things as needed.
I will be responsible for setting up the systems that I need to be able to make my business a successful world-class business. I will start with the actual doing the work starting 12/05/17, that I need to do to bring in new customers. I will make this systems more user-friendly which allows me to accomplish what I need to do.
Regarding my problem with increasing my profitability, I believe that the task which I have been avoiding is promoting myself. I believe the first step is to re-brand my business. Therefore I will spend one hour this weekend on researching graphic designs and two hours during the week making contact with the person to do the design.
