When you want to go someplace…..How do you get there?
(An old fashioned map)
Here is one way, Chart a Path, Make a Plan.
Figure out a step by step route, a system, to get you where you want to go.
This is another way to go.
This is a Daruma that DJ Gatsby brought me from Tokyo. (a little Japanese figurine)
It seems you make a wish and color in one eye…….and wait a year.
If it comes true you color in the other eye and keep it.
If it doesn’t come true you toss it.
Do you run your business by this kind of wishful thinking?
Is that how you get from where you are to where you want to go.
As we said, if you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there.
Or do you go about your business by ignorance and apathy…..meaning, you don’t know and you don’t care?
Anyway, a few weeks ago I suggested writing a letter telling about your goals and how you plan on reaching them.
Only Lisa Marks, David Temple, and I Jean Tang expressed an interest. And, only one person actually gave me a letter last week….Valerie Frankfeldt.
Valerie has thought about her goals and has expressed them. Now she…..and I….know how she will reach them.
You know how at BNI we say to be specific about whom you want to meet. Be specific about your goals too.
Since Valerie has made this effort I, for one, want to help her reach her goals.
Her goals are wonderful financial projections of a nice six figure income and I believe she will reach them.
She says she will reach them, in part, but learning from us all, learning BNI techniques and marketing herself in new ways….that she will discover and invent.
Let us all reach out to her, learn more about her, give some thought as to how we can help Valerie achieve her goals and her financial projections.
Don’t keep your goals a well kept secret……especially from yourself.
