This statement was made by Sir John Harvey, a British Actor-Manager born in the 1800’s yet it resonates with most of us today! "I am always happy and fulfilled after I’ve done my planning but it is true that I’m generally more interested in doing things….I have to force myself to plan. It takes a concerted effort and a commitment to the process for me to spend consistent time planning."
The key I’ve found is to create a plan—for your planning. Even as a ‘solo-prenuer’ I have recognized that I need a written plans (as opposed to keeping it in my head), in order to stay focused and measure my progress. How about you—have you spent time planning for next year? I don’t mean the budget, but the other stuff?
