Introducing The ‘P’ Series (this is going to be pretty fun)

Remember all those ‘P’ words I talked about a few weeks ago? I realized that many of them deserve their own newsletter. So for the rest of the year, that is exactly what we are going to do.

First up…PROCESS + PLAN.

I wanted to start here because these are really the foundation for everything in your solo business or your organization.

Without a process and a plan, nothing is achieved.

Think about a project right now that you or your organization want to accomplish in 2018.

Ask yourself these questions.

  1. Have I clearly defined the project and why I’m doing it?
  2. Do I know who else on my team needs to be involved?
  3. What are the main obstacles I might encounter?
  4. When does this project need to be completed?
  5. What software or outside sources will I need to use?
  6. What is the budget?
  7. What are the action items around each step of the project?

Lucky #7 is the key question.

It was most likely easy to answer the first six. But when it comes to action – when it comes to the process and the plan – it’s easy to get stuck. The way around this is to break down the project into manageable tasks and set deadlines and action steps around each.

Looking to the very end of the project will only cause stress, overwhelm and confusion. Celebrating each mark on the giant line of success is the best way to stay motivated, clear and on track.

One of our major projects here at SSC for 2018 (you’ll hear about it soon) has already been in the process and planning stages for months. It’s been a team effort and we have been looking at every stride we make and taking the time to recognize the achievements. We are simply enjoying the ride!

If it’s time for that one project you just haven’t been able to make happen to finally come to life, let’s chat.

With a process and a plan – that project will soon become a new reality!
