What borrowed wisdom is worth thinking about?

"Make more decisions in every day. Because a decision is a summoning of life. That's why a little chaos is good for you, because often you don't make a decision until you get yourself in a jam. And then, in the middle of the jam, you make a decision, but that decision summons Life Force. Have you ever been a place where you couldn't quite make up your mind and you just felt sort of limp? "Oh, I don't know. I don't know. I don't know." And then you decided, and you felt alive again. We want you to know that you'll never get it done. So don't approach this from, "I gotta get on this" because you're not ever going to get it done, anyway. And the other thing we want you to know is, you cannot get it wrong. So, make a decision. Let it flow."

— Excerpted from the workshop: Larkspur, CA on August 16, 1998

What’s the bottom line?

Bottom Line about Business Planning
I have lived most of my life believing that a business plan with help make it more likely to achieve what you really want. I have even perpetuated the statistics of achievement, citing that people with a business plan achieve more. I have watched people struggle, feel guilty about not doing it right, try to create more self-discipline to manage themselves. For the most part, it seems, all of this struggle not only does not achieve the result, but leaves people feeling like a failure.

Business Planning Was The Old School Way
So, to risk being classified as a heretic….. there is a better way. Over the last 20 years or so, the teachers of Law of Attraction have been enlightening folks to the easier, happier way of doing things! The Law of Attraction says,”Like is attracted to like.” Just that. Simple. The old way, however, usually had people focus on what was lacking, missing or just plain wrong. And what we got was more of that or, at least, one hell of a struggle to produce something different!

Business Planning The New Way
This isn’t to say you want to throw out your vision. It is still very important, but the way you think about it and interact with it can be lighter, easier, and, even, more productive.

[  ] Start by identifying exactly what it is you want.
[  ] Picture yourself having achieved it
[  ] Feel the emotions and feelings in having achieved it
[  ] Keep these thoughts in front of you every time you want to focus on what to do next

A great way to make this work for you is to write a list of all the positives from having this come to fruition, and manifest!! Then, first thing in the morning, when you are in that not quite awake state… read your list… relax and enjoy the good feelings and then get on with your day.

The focus will raise your vibrations and attract to you people situations and synchronicities that will give you more of what you appreciate and want!!!!

Business Planning The New Way: Awesome Year Plan
I am completely revamping my Awesome Year Plan to reflect this new way of planning. It should be available for 2015 in a couple of weeks! You’ll be the first to know when it is ready!!! You are gonna love it!

What Techie Tip do You need?

Planning for a great 2015 With Technology!
There are so many techie tools, apps and ways to use technology. The good news is you don’t have to use them all. The bad news is many of you are paralyzed because they don’t know what they should do. The better news is that you know the answer: Just like eating an elephant... one byte at a time!

The Tip
Back to Joeann’s Rule of 3:
What are the 3 steps you could take around technology that will give you the biggest return on you money and time?

[  ] A piece of equipment? A new computer, iPad, smart Phone, scanner?
[  ] An app to save you time energy, money? Contactually? Evernote?
[  ] A training class to learn how to use technology with clients. A GRI Class? A hands-on workshop?

Identify for yourself the next 3 best moves you can make, and set a time and budget for those items. Continue as you master these 3 to the next best. If you do this, you will be consistently taking baby steps that will support you to become more proficient! The worst mistake is doing nothing!

Joeann’s Tips on being more focused and full of joy

Look…. it has ALWAYS worked out! And, you can trust yourself to know what it is best for you to do for it to continue to work out. Stop worrying! Especially stop worrying about things that probably won’t even happen!

Feeling good is a sign you are doing it right. Trust that and live enjoying TODAY!!!!!! (Hint, it’s not about the destination ; it’s about the journey)
