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!
