Honestly, I probably wouldn’t go through quarterly planning at all if it wasn’t for this group. It is refreshing to see that many of the other participants struggle with similar things. Getting someone else’s view on my struggle and an idea they may have that I didn’t overcome them is invaluable. This being my second quarter doing this, I’m surprised by how much more manageable my lists of actions I need to take to reach the goals I set out seems than last quarter. That is due in large part to the process of doing the review and planning, sticking following the list of actionable last steps last quarter, and coming again this quarter.
I work a lot with my clients about business planning, and Gwen has helped me plan for my business, instead just for my clients. Quarterly planning has made a big difference in focusing on the important work! I went from 5 figure proposals to 6 figure proposals in 6 months! Now she is challenging me to take more time off in 2022!
In the past, I’ve rushed through making an ambitious plan to do ambitious things and then either struggled to follow through or stalled out in anticipation of struggles – this year feels different and exciting, and I think it’s the combination of taking more time to review, focusing on how I want to feel about my work, and knowing that I have a plan for the next 13 weeks and also a method for changing that plan as needed?
