Flying First Class In Coach!

By

 Yesterday, I had my first coaching session with Jacques, my ClubNet coach.

It was a "5 Wow" conversation.

To prepare for our time over the phone, I prepared a business profile and a first draft of my 2008 business plan.  That alone put me way ahead of where I was this time last year - I had a few written goals but no real plan.

And I want to share with you a wonderful nugget that I got from Jacques.

You know how we all make out plans and New Years resolutions and all of that to start on January 1st of whatever year?  That would be the time to dump all bad habits, eat only healthy food, work out at the gym 5 times a week, and do all of our calls and contacts and prospecting.  

Add to all of that clear clutter from home, office and brain.   

And of course, by the end of January, I'm back to slug bait!  I'm eating like a pig, going to the gym only to use the steam room and whirlpool, letting my business go back to auto-pilot, and bringing junk home from some neighbor's flea sale.

So this year, I am not waiting for January 1.  My New Year began yesterday.  I'm getting into practice.   By the beginning of the New Year, I'll at least be in practice - and while I may not make it perfect, it's going to be really, really good!

I can feel it in my bones!

If it is good enough to qualify as a goal for tomorrow, then there is no point in waiting to put it into practice.  Great post!

Patricia- ohhh, congratulations on your first session with Jacques and your enthusiasm for ClubNet!  I hope you enjoy working with your coach as much as I enjoy working with mine.

I'm going to decide this week about Florida as well...Fran has been talking about it for so long I feel like I just have to be there too!  (what is the deal with all the exclamations!!!) :o)

Pat -very inspirational post, you got me fired up and I am suppose to be going to bed.   How goes things now that you are three weeks into your New Year?

Today, I did some of the things you mentioned that take you away from working on your business.  Currently, I am reading E Myth Mastery --phenomenal book and I highly recommend it.  Read E Myth revisited first. 

 

Hey, what's wrong with hitting the gym for a steam( ha ha) anyway I worked out today too --2008 will be great(GOD Willing)
