Yesterday, I had my first coaching session with Jacques, my ClubNet coach.
It was a "5 Wow" conversation.
To prepare for our time over the phone, I prepared a business profile and a first draft of my 2008 business plan. That alone put me way ahead of where I was this time last year - I had a few written goals but no real plan.
And I want to share with you a wonderful nugget that I got from Jacques.
You know how we all make out plans and New Years resolutions and all of that to start on January 1st of whatever year? That would be the time to dump all bad habits, eat only healthy food, work out at the gym 5 times a week, and do all of our calls and contacts and prospecting.
Add to all of that clear clutter from home, office and brain.
And of course, by the end of January, I'm back to slug bait! I'm eating like a pig, going to the gym only to use the steam room and whirlpool, letting my business go back to auto-pilot, and bringing junk home from some neighbor's flea sale.
So this year, I am not waiting for January 1. My New Year began yesterday. I'm getting into practice. By the beginning of the New Year, I'll at least be in practice - and while I may not make it perfect, it's going to be really, really good!
I can feel it in my bones!
