How to Use Strategic Planning to Get the Biggest Results with Less Stress in 2020

How to Use Strategic Planning to Get the Biggest Results with Less Stress in 2020

I love the smell of new office supplies. Going back-to-school shopping at Staples was my heaven. And I love planning so much that I plan my planning.

How about you? Do you use an intersecting system of 3 different color-coded calendars, or are you holding on tenuously to your “keeping it all up here” [points to brain] system?

Either way, I’m glad you’re here.

We officially have 7.5 weeks left, not only in this year but in this decade.

I’m officially naming 2020 the year of clarity because…you know…20/20. 👀

One of my favorite quotes is:

Money loves clarity.

I’m pretty sure my friend Barbara Huson, author of Sacred Success, was the one who coined that phrase. (Although I see it used without credit a lot on the interwebs. Side note: credit your sources folks!)

You know what else loves clarity?

Your goals! Your dreams! Your desires!

And you know what you need for clarity?

A plan.

Mike and I are already doing some strategic planning for 2020 (super exciting things coming down the pike for you!), so we thought we’d let you in on the behind-the-scenes of some of our process.

Today on the podcast we’re sharing 3 ways you can use strategic planning to get the biggest results with the least stress in 2020.

Listen in for:

  • The most important question you need to be asking yourself as you plan 2020
  • The map we create for the year to ensure we don’t overschedule ourselves
  • The formula we use for a pre-launch runway and why it will make all the difference in your launch results
  • The exact calendar and planning system I’m using in 2020 to ensure we have the biggest results with the least amount of stress possible

You want to know something crazy?

Most people do very little to zero planning of their lives. And they wonder why they’re not getting the results they want.

A little planning goes a LONG way. The 3 tips we give you in this episode are the 20% that will give you 80% of the planning results.

Once you’ve listened, we’d love to hear from you:

What are your tried-and-true planning practices? What calendar and/or planning systems do you use? Which one of the 3 planning tips are you the most excited to implement?

P.S. I get DM’s every week from people asking me if I’m going to create a planner. And guess what? We did it!

Tired of being the smartest person in the room? How to Uplevel Your Business Through Relationships

When one of the women who joined our high-level program told me that the reason she’d joined was because she was sick of being the smartest person in the room, I absolutely loved her honesty. It also made me think of the rooms I’ve been in over the years and the rooms I get on…

The Opportunity in Illness

The Opportunity in Illness

If you hang around the planet long enough, you’re going to get sick, and for sure someone you love is going to get sick. A year ago my husband was so sick that he dropped 40 pounds in a month, his skin kept peeling off repeatedly, his entire head swelled, cracked, and was oozing, and…

Why Technology Isn’t As Bad for Your Kids As You Think with Jordan Shapiro

Why Technology Isn't As Bad for Your Kids As You Think with Jordan Shapiro

Until quite recently I was firmly in the camp of: Any amount of screen time my kids have is not optimal. I’m not a purist when it comes to parenting, and Penelope can watch a show on the weekends and on the days of the week that she’s home. Even with that small amount, I’ve…

The Surprising Path Beyond Depression, Anxiety, and Fatigue with Kelly Brogan, MD, author of Own Your Self

While I love sharing ideas that are against the grain, I rarely go full-on controversial. But today, I am. To be honest, I’m squirming as I write this because my central nervous system has trouble with the inner explosion that happens when someone has been offended by something I’ve said or an idea I’ve shared….

How Storytelling Can Captivate Customers, Influence Audiences, and Transform Your Business with Kindra Hall, author of Stories That Stick

Years ago I sat in a beautiful theater in Downtown Salt Lake City and was swept away by the stories the energetic woman was telling from stage. I walked out of the session and immediately texted the conference organizer, letting her know that this woman needed to be keynoting on the mainstage next time. Little…

The Simple Story of How We Made $20K Selling A Course We Hadn't Yet Created

Back in 2012, Mike and I were living in a drafty rental on Long Island figuring out how to live and work together. (Oh wait. Still trying to figure that out, minus the draftiness.) Over lunch at a little golf course cafe, we came up with an idea to give our community something they’d been…

The 5 Biggest Mistakes Digital Course Creators Make (And What To Do About Them)

I got started in the digital course game by accident and had zero clue what I was doing. I wasn’t tech-savvy. I didn’t have any kind of professional equipment and I didn’t have a huge list or following. But what I did have is a desire to help the people who were asking for my…
