Planning Saves Time

I’m a couple days late for this, but I started it this past weekend. One thing that I do every fall and actually every quarter, is some PLANNING. I got this idea from the book: “The 12 Week Year” by Brian P. Moran.

Set Yearly Goals

The basic premise is that when we set goals or intentions for an entire year, the steam runs out pretty quickly (as we all know). So, the solution to this problem is to break the year up into 12-week periods. If you do this, you will find you have a bit of time between each 12-week period in which to do the planning.

Set High-level Goals

So basically you just condense your goals to fit into the 12-week period and focus solely on that. Of course, before starting this process, you will need to establish your overall higher level goals. You then work backward to determine what you need to (and can) get done in 12 weeks that will propel you towards those higher level goals.

Focus on a Few

The recommendation is to only focus on 3 or 4 of them, so you are not too spread out. This fall I am working on weight loss, my website (hope you’ll see major changes by the end of this year) and paying off some debt. Would love to hear from you how this works for you!
