Planning

Hi, I’m Mark Debinski, Founder and Managing Member of Bluewater Advisory here to remind you about the importance of planning.

Every year, the week after Thanksgiving, I take two days in a place that’s both relaxing and inspiring.  I look back at the year that just occurred and I look forward and I plan for the next year.  I can’t tell you how important this is to both meeting and exceeding your goals.  I also start the trip by reading something outside of the normal business books I read on a regular basis.  On the flight down, I read “Sour Beef & Cheesecake”, a book written by a 17-year-old daughter of a friend of mine, Grace Collins.  I highly recommend it.  As I plan, I focus on both the macro, my large objectives for next year, as well as the micro objectives and that’s when I get into the spreadsheet – specifically how I’m going to achieve the goals, who my ideal clients are, who we are going to work with.  I will tell you, every year it works.  As we look back at 2011, we are very fortunate to of had a successful year and worked with wonderful clients.  We have 2012 shaping up as a terrific year as well!

Find a time and place that is right for you.  The important thing is that you do it

Thanks and have a great day!
