Leaping through Lockdown

Although it is hard to imagine right now, this time will pass.
It’s important you make the most of it so you can be prepared for the future.

Following the 3 steps below will help give you clarity, purpose, and better outcomes when we are on the other side of this and dealing with a new normal.

  1. Budget – make/update your budget both in life and your business.
  2. Spring Clean – do this both in life and your business. It is never a pleasant job but always makes you feel good. Get rid of the clutter, put stuff in a ‘to throw out’ box or if tidying up computer files create an ‘archive’ folder. Think of this like you are pruning a plant: when you cut back a plant, it grows back better.
  3. Plan – write down your plan/strategy together. Look at systems/processes, possibilities for new learning and training. What are the opportunities going forward and how can you prepare?
Like a gardener, do work now that will bring future benefits: Look at what you need to water, fertilize and mulch now, in order to generate growth and better outcomes in the future.
