ACCELERATE YOUR SUCCESS WITH A 90-DAY PLANJul 03, 2022
Do you sometimes get so committed to your goals that you want results NOW?
When you think about what you want from your business, do your thoughts immediately race in the direction of the finish line?
In any endeavor, it takes time to get from where you are to where you want to be.
WHAT IS A 90-DAY PLAN?
A 90-Day plan is a proven strategy to accelerate your progress. Instead of trying to improve all aspects of your business all at once, you choose one area of improvement to focus on over the next 90 days. With a 90-Day plan, you make choices about what you’ll work on before focusing your energy on other areas of improvement.
WILL A 90-DAY PLAN SLOW ME DOWN?
Actually, a 90-Day Plan is a long-term strategy that will help you move more quickly and efficiently. Sometimes we need to go slow in one area for a while so we can figure out what it takes to go fast.
Have you ever noticed how you feel when you push toward a result?
Can you remember how you felt after that push?
Have you ever pushed so hard toward a result just days before month-end that you collapsed before you could get back to your business?
Maybe you can think of a time when you didn’t break an incentive into manageable pieces, and left too much to work on at the end of the goal’s time-frame. You found a way to go fast, but did you build the skills and patterns that would allow you to do it more effectively next time?
A 90-Day Plan helps you concentrate on improvement one piece at a time.
It helps you build strength, consistency, and sustainable habits. One at a time.
THE POWER OF PRACTICE
When you take a balanced, measured approach to improving your business results, you allow time for practice. Consistent practice is the key to making any improvement. Prepare to create a result. Plan your time and your efforts to make it happen. And practice, practice, practice.
Before we can be truly successful, we must accept that practice is what creates continuous improvement. Practice isn’t easy. It’s hard to find the patience to be not-so-good at something before seeing improvement. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable as you get better. Practice is the only way from here to there.
By committing to improvements in 90-Day time-frames, you make room to accept imperfection. You allow time to discover what doesn’t work so you can figure out what does. Identify the areas where you need to improve your consistency and your skills. Instead of being afraid that you’ll fail, be patient knowing you have given yourself a full 90 days to create improvement.
Reframe the way you look at failure.
HOW A 90-DAY PLAN HELP A PERSON TO GET STARTED?
Your company probably has a “Success Plan” that puts structure and systems in place for beginning a business. Many start-up plans are built upon a 90-Day time-frame because it is short enough to maintain commitment, and long enough to create improvement.
Work with your company’s plan. Help your new team members think about what they’ll create in their first 90 days. When that time-frame is over, help them learn from experience and guide them to focus on an area to improve in the next 90 Days.
