What are we doing? Why are we doing it? and Where do we want to be?
Fairly solid questions to ask yourself as a business owner, especially if your mental health has taken a beating, a global pandemic has taken over the world and you lost 3 very special people in the space of a year…
But I find myself peering out of the fog a little easier this month, the weight a little easier to bear; and so these questions, which I ask myself semi-regularly (to keep my focus) have been on my mind since I woke up this morning.
Last year we clarified the What and Why really well for the business, even made it into a nice little leaflet to send out with orders so we can share how much we love what we do with the world! But the WHERE needed more in depth thought and planning, mainly due to how much our (and so many other people’s) business world changed in the last 12 months.
It’s not like I never had that grand, blue sky dream type dream for the businesses, but I don’t think I have ever had the kind of focus required to distil that plan down into a visible path forward, with tangible goals and steps to success.
I have had several mentors and business advisors over the last 8 years who helped give me the skills to actually do that kind of future planning, but if I’m honest, I’ve never forced myself to sit down and put the skills into action.
So now is the time! If you don’t take the first step, you’ll never move up the stairs!
