Strategic Planning for Purpose and Passion Some people think of this as the holiday season… Others also think of it as the “planning season.” The time of year when you start to figure out how you’d like the next year to go… What you’re going to achieve… What programs and practices you’re going to kick off… If this sounds like fun to you, I’d like to offer a little spin in keeping with this very important idea: Make sure that all – or at any rate, most – of your precious time should be spent in service of things which light up your life. If you plan from that perspective, no matter what you chose to do, things could turn out… Simply amazing. So watch the video. It’s a short 4’53”… And please leave your comments below for others to see. 23 Responses Tony Parodi Camero December 15, 2012 Can't watch, not mobile compatible. 🙁 Reply pl December 15, 2012 Tony – plays well on both my iPhone and android. Reply Joanna December 14, 2012 I like taking these little “gems” from your videos, Paul. Planning is crucial for any success and I like your idea of clearly naming purpose,passion and obligations. It’s a bit like going though wardrobe of old clothes and throwing away unused tems. I am doing my list straight away! Reply Nicki van Eeden December 14, 2012 Great idea and have immediately implemented it. Reply Andrew Haddleton December 13, 2012 Context – ahh yes such a small change but a massive effect. THat's a really cool notion. Reply Chris King December 13, 2012 Another super video. You make everything so clear! And, most importantly push me to think and consider my plans of action. Way to go, Paul! Reply Gerry Brimacombe December 13, 2012 Paul, nothing brand new hear, of course, but I do like the shift in thinking you introduce. I have seen over and over that when I am clear about my intentions, they seem to "accomplish themselves" and also when those intentions line up with what I love to do…then I am ENERGIZED! Reply Korby Waters December 13, 2012 That was powerful and I am going to use this process today… Reply pl December 13, 2012 Get going! Post back with results… ~pl Reply Brian Kevin Johnston December 13, 2012 “What Do You Really Want”, and “Context Decides Meaning”… Loved This Video Blog… Best To All… Reply pl December 13, 2012 Thanks, Brian Reply Eduardo Krajewski December 13, 2012 Paul, I agree…. Clarity is key! Love to have you on my team! Reply pl December 13, 2012 Eduardo, it’s great to be on your team. H-Company is going to rock! Reply Ed Parry December 13, 2012 Thanks Paul. Great video. Looking forward to the next one Reply Ed Parry December 13, 2012 Another great video by Paul Lemberg. He is the man. Reply Stewart Kelly December 13, 2012 Love the idea of contextual awareness planning Paul. A mindshift can make all the difference. Reply pl December 13, 2012 Stewart – it’s a great start! Reply John Klein December 13, 2012 Simple message . . . but lots of thought needed to slay many of the dragons that are lurking around as possible “goals.” In the past, every New Years I make a list of “goals” for the coming year. Last year I listed 12.. Guess how many were achieved this year– zero! I like Paul’s idea of focusing on one main passion / purpose along with obligations. So I’ll try it this way for 2013. Hope it makes the big difference. Reply pl December 13, 2012 John – lots of people’s goals never see daylight because they’re based on “shoulds” and “out-to’s” Basing your goals (and your future) on your passion and purpose changes everything. ~pl Reply Richard Petrie December 13, 2012 thanks Paul. This is essential for life not just business. How many people know their purpose? No many if any. But it is worth dedicating time to find out. Reply pl December 13, 2012 You’re welcome, Richard. Yes – essential for life. More on finding purpose later… Reply Mike December 13, 2012 Awesome Paul. Thanks for the tips. Reply pl December 13, 2012 Mike, you’re welcome Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
