I always like asking business owners, what they really want to achieve in life – is it having more time to spend with the children.
Planning Your Life so Everything Fits Together.
Working three day weeks, jetting off on well-deserved luxury holidays throughout the year or even property abroad?
Once that’s established, we can then put a plan in place outlining how you’re actually going to achieve it – do you need to take on additional staff? Do you need to give junior staff the training needed to take on your role? What clients do you need, how big are they? You get the picture.
Think of it as similar to when you go on holiday – you don’t just turn up at the airport, choose a plane at random, and then jump on board. You decide where you really want to go first, and then work out the best way to make it happen.
Developing a successful lifestyle plan is a fairly straightforward process. Firstly you need to review your current circumstances, look at what is happening at present, and establish objectives and goals to work towards – figure out exactly what you want out of life.
Once you have this ‘end destination’ in mind, you can then start putting the systems and processes in place to help you achieve them, and also develop alternative strategies to cope if and when things change.
You’re going to end up somewhere you might as well pick the destination
