Mrs. Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor, is reported to have said, “You can never be too rich or too thin.”
If that's true, I would like to add that you can never be too clear.
I don't think you can have too clear a communication. And I don’t think you can be too clear on your values, your principles, your goals—or how to achieve them.
In fact, lack of clarity is, in my opinion, one of the biggest causes of failure.
Clarity leads to power. And the more clear we can become, the easier it is for our subconscious minds, and the hearts and minds of others, to help us achieve our most important objectives.
Last week, as part of our 15-Year Anniversary Sale, I agreed to do ten coaching calls for a very nominal price.
They went quickly. And I still have a few more of them to complete.
But the ones I have already done have been intriguing and have resulted in some real breakthroughs for the participants.
Imagine how great it feels to get clear and be able to focus your efforts in an effective and efficient fashion.
So this week, I will accept up to ten new appointments.
During this "Clarity Call", I can help you . . .
solve a problem
brainstorm an idea
gain clarity about an issue
get advice on a course of action or
do a mini business makeover
I'm willing to give you my personal and professional best--one-on-one for 50 minutes.
During this time I will listen, ask you questions, offer suggestions, provide resources, and help you get clear on the next steps for you to achieving your objective.
Or, I will help you get clear on what your top objectives are--what do you really want, why do you want them and how you can get there.
What would it be worth for you to get clear and go forward with confidence and clarity to achieve whatever you desire? Because of my knowledge, experience and perspective, I can save you time, energy, money and heartache.
I want to help you. I also want to get to know you. And I want you to see the value of having a trusted advisor to coach you as you navigate the narrows and rapids of achieving your most important goals.
I normally charge $300 to $500 for something like this, but as part of our 15-Year Anniversary Sale, I will conduct one-on-one strategy sessions with the first 10 people who sign up for only $75.
And if later you decide to join Diamond Club or my Inner Circle (where you get ongoing clarity calls and strategy sessions), we will credit your payment toward that.
We have to limit the number of people I do this with because my schedule does not allow me to do more. But I want to make it affordable, while at the same time making sure participants are serious and have some skin in the game.
I'll even guarantee the session. If you don’t think it was worth more than you paid, I will refund your payment. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Our lives and the success of our businesses often turns on a single encounter, an important decision or a moment of clarity and insight.
Using the old-fashioned To-Do list is better than no tool at all. But there really are much more effective tools you can use to efficiently manage your projects and tasks.
I’ve used dozens of different systems over the years to try and tame the task tiger. I’m a power user of Outlook and I still use index cards to make notes and write down the 3 to 7 things I want to do or focus on today.
In Outlook, I am a big fan of the calendar and the contacts list which sync up nicely with my Blackberry.
But until recently, every system I tried had its limitations, didn’t mesh well with other things I was using or was TOO powerful—and complicated—for my needs.
If you want to get things done—especially while working with staff, contractors and partners—you need a system that everyone can use and interact with.
A couple of years ago, our friend Rick Raddatz shared with us his idea for just such a system. And now, after going through several programmers, lots of testing and several big obstacles, he’s got it.
