ANNUAL BUSINESS PLANS ARE NOT GOOD

  • You really should have a business plan but it is how you process this and how you write out your business plan.
  • In the book ‘The 12 Week Year’ talks about breaking your year into twelve, one week segments, you can literally do more in twelve weeks in all year.
  • You can check your progress four times a year not just once.
  • You can get to check your failures.
  • You do daily tasks or weekly tasks than goes on to twelve weeks and what will it do is a usual countability on a daily basis.
  • If you hit 85% of your tasks, then you will achieve your goals.
  • The difference between reviewing and shifting are making a period based on 12 months of data versus 12 weeks of data, basically what it does is it speeds up your planning and revision process by three-quarters.
  • Whatever industry you are in, you are able to make shifts easier identify different trends that are happening and adjust your projects accordingly.

PLANNING YOUR DAYS ONCE A WEEK

  • A lot of people notice but they don’t do it, that’s the biggest thing.
  • Take at least half an hour to plan things you gonna do on the next week.
  • You are already prepared and ready on your 12-week year even though we have interruptions.
  • One of the things that people are conscious with is setting a goal, and the second that they hit an obstacle they are not able to continue on the path of their plan.
  • They feel that they fail something and then abandon everything all together.
  • You are gonna have challenges that are gonna mess up your week, but if you plan it out and there’s an adjustment came up you are not afraid to do that and you’ll will accomplish the task that you set for that day.
  • Strategic time blocking is a time that you set aside where you turn off all your distractions, everything is shut off so you are fully concentrating.
  • The strategic block, buffer block, and the breakout block.
  • You can do this breakout block at least 3 hours a day during your day work hours.
  • Why is it important? Because for just a brief of time it takes away your mind from the craziness that happens around at work.
  • It is really helpful to make your brain feel fresh.
