I hope that by now you’re well into planning out the New Year.
I trust you have some inspiring goals selected and are refining projects and plans of actions in support of these goals.
One of the tools I employ and recommend to my coaching clients is More/Less, Start/Stop.
It’s a simple process that always leads to greater insight as to what goals, projects, tasks and resolutions we can choose and focus upon to make our life and our business better.
What would you like to have more of and what would you like to have less of in the year ahead? Here are a few ideas that should get you thinking:
How many other people do you know laying awake at night thinking about how you can have a better life? I’m guessing about the same number I have—zero.
Success Net is about helping you design, plan, create and live your best life. We can help—and we’re committed to doing so. But the first step is for you to understand that you, and you alone, are the architect of your life.
And your best life doesn’t just happen. It doesn't automatically unfold, and it’s not given to you. You have to design and create your best life yourself. You are 100% responsible.
No one else can, or will, do this for you.
In fact, here is a complete list of what others have planned for you:
I’ve known Bob Stiller for over 25 years. During that time, I’ve watched him build a small Vermont business into a gigantic publicly traded company. And earlier this week, that company, Keurig-Green Mountain, was sold to a private-equity firm for $13.9 billion.
Coffee is the number two commodity in the world (right after oil), but that’s still a lot of money for a coffee company founded in little Waterbury, Vermont in 1981.
Bob bought out his original partners within two years for $100, 000. But it took four years to turn a profit. Early on, the company embraced an environmental and socially responsible ethos, and I always admired the culture Bob developed and cultivated in his consistently growing concern.
