In February 2017, I’ll be running my first “Indivisible Life” (IL) workshop. This course is based on the book I’ve been writing for the last 5 years and is a distillation of all the lessons I’ve learned, the experiences I’ve enjoyed, and endured, and my own prescription for living highly effectively.
Although it can be done at any time, October is often the month that many of us start to think about the year ahead and an important part of IL is having a plan that addresses all dimensions, not just the business. I find it incredible how many people have a business or career plan but leave all other areas of their life to chance or fate. To my mind this is the root cause of the frustration and discontent that seems so prevalent today.
In the very first “four-i weekly” I highlighted a simple process, (10’s, 25’s, 50’s & 100’s) that helps to identify the important things and experiences you would like to have. Building on this is another simple process for annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily planning – “The Indivisible Plan” that will be a central part of the IL workshop. To give you a taster, here’s the first 10 questions to begin the process:
Once you’ve answered these 10 questions (and the workshop has many more), you will then be in a much more productive state to start planning for the next 12 months, to “begin with the end in mind” as Stephen Covey would put it, to be ready to live your best year yet. IL is about being highly effective in every respect, not just financial or business, although these form an important part, but in all dimensions – and having an “Indivisible Plan” is the best way I know to setting the right course.
