Before we dive into the 6 steps, I’m going to share my story with you not so you just know my story, but so you know it’s not a framework I made up out of thin air, it’s something I developed for myself, and then packaged into an online experience because so many of my clients felt the same way I had:
- Overwhelmed by the day to day
- Plans, goals and deadlines seem to turn to *poop*
- The feeling of being stuck in a rut
- And despite so much work & effort, not seeing the results they wanted
And when I say I developed it for myself, it was at a pretty low point for me, very quickly after rebranding and repositioning as a coach after success as a consultant.
Within 3 months of starting my startup coaching practice in 2014 I felt paralyzed by overwhelm and my work came to a standstill.
My to-do list was as insatiable, I was working every waking hour, getting caught up in the busyness of the day to day, and stuck down the rabbit hole of endless online business training that promising to grow my list and get me to six figures in as many months.
I felt incompetent and incapable of moving forward.
I wallowed for a while, and then I had an epiphany:
I was no longer aligned with the vision I had for my life and life’s work.
Lewis Carol said it best:
"If you don't know where you’re going, any road will get you there."
And I realised:
I had to create a vision for my life that excited the crap out of me, and THAT would help me get organised - radically organised - in my day to day, both in my life AND in my work.
What do I mean by this? Well, let’s dive into the 6 steps and take a look!
The first step is creating a big picture vision for your life that excites the crap out of you.
... so you have an unstoppable driving force for your life and work.
This is the most strategic resource for your business because it gives you a powerful decision making framework for how you spend your time, what kind of business you create, the types of products & services you create, and how you package, market & sell your offers. It radically shifts the way you show up for your work, because the ultimate result at the end of the tunnel is YOUR LIFE! Not just a paycheck!
You know what that means, right?
It means your life vision helps you create a powerful business model, strategy and plan. When you have these in place you can focus on what matters most. You won’t waste time creating projects, services, products & offers that don’t align with how you want to live. You’ll be laser focused on building a business that supports the life you WANT.
Here’s an example...
... if you want to be location independent, you’ll probably think twice about building a one-on-one coaching practice to ties you to certain schedules and time zones. So that affects your business model & your products & services.
If you want to live in Central America like I do for several months of the year, you’ll start a podcast instead of a FB live streaming show, because the internet here is really unpredictable. So that affects your marketing & communications.
So that’s the first step to being radically organised in your business:
Creating a vision for your life that excites the crap out of you!
Because being radically organised is knowing what matters most.
