Full transparency....I HATE to-do lists.
Sometimes I make them. Then I forget where I put them. I lose them.
Sometimes I write them on the back of napkins or in the latest iphone app or voice memo gizmo, or on the back of my hand.
Seriously, I've tried for not going to share the exact number a really long time to appease my mother and be a to-do list maker/practitioner to no avail.
Sorry Mom, I am NOT a to-do list person.
But that doesn't mean I don't find lists helpful.
Forget "to-do" lists.
How about "to-be" lists?
Now that's something that gets me excited!
I've been a big picture person for as long as I can remember.
Dreaming big, planning, acting "as-if" and ultimately framing my business and goals around a vision beyond daily actions steps has been a much more effective tool for me over the years.
How might things be different in your business if you focused more on who you want to be in the future, rather than what you have to do today?
Let me list the ways....
