Don’s Monthly Newsletter for December – I Hope You Get Shot Down A Lot In 2015
It’s that time of year. Your 2015 business plan is due. You’ve got a blank page and a new chapter to write. As always, we’ll see opportunity and crisis playing leapfrog. You will have successes and you will have failures, hopefully more of the former. You’ll get new clients and you’ll lose a few old clients. You’ll act decisively. You’ll waver. You’ll be up and you’ll be down. You’ll come out the other end a better person.
2015 is upon us. It’s time to suck it up and try it again. Or is it?
I have some food for thought as you sit down to write your plans for 2015.
I’m a reader and two of my favorite topics are achieving success and the pursuit of excellence. It seems no matter whom I read about, athlete, business success or artist; the shared qualities are predictable. Hard work, ingenuity, passion, luck and persistence always play a key role. I rarely get surprised. I’ve come to expect reinforcement more than enlightenment.
Having said that, I must say I was recently enlightened. I read something that presented me with a whole new train of thought that makes sense.
Read or listen to the monthly newsletter, available in written as well as audio format.
The AskDON episode which goes with this Monthly Newsletter comes from Tom in Portland, Maine.
I get the need for a business plan, but the thought of writing a tome makes me vomit. Is there a way to simplify the process?
Find Don’s answer in the second part of both the written and the audio version of the Monthly Newsletter.
