So you set up a plan for an idea you have. Have you thought out all the steps? Do you have to? Should you?
In all actuality, having a plan is ideal. It allows for steps to be created and planned for in an orderly or timeline management style. You can set benchmarks and look for all KPI’s; you can analyze and evaluate. All the things that they teach you in a business school or program can work wonderfully – but if this one thing is missing, an awesome outcome might be out of your reach.
That one thing is mindset. And a positive mindset at that.
So as the final part of your plan, make a checklist for your mindset. Include these concepts:
- Are the goals or results you want to achieve and the steps to the plan stated in the positive?
- Are you in control of those steps and the metrics by which you will measure your success?
- Are the steps broken down to small, achievable steps?
Clarifying these concepts with a partner, a mentor, a coach, will allow for clarity and confidence and help you push through to attain your goals. A positive result is practically guaranteed if you have a positive mindset.
