    From The Manifest Method: How to set up your week for productivity success!

    June 6, 2013

    Sometimes, one of the toughest parts of being an entrepreneur is the "keeping your head above water." It's mastering the role of air traffic controller so that you, and your business, can stay happy and profitable. 

    With so many things on our plates, adding one more "to do" might seem crazy. But I promise you that the following "Do" from my new book, The Manifest Method, will save you time, money, and can practically guarantee you success on a weekly basis. Read on for a sneak preview! 

    STEP 4: DO
    WEEKLY PILOT PLAN

    You need to know where you are going in order to get there. The Weekly Pilot Plan gets you to think like the Pilot. Extract yourself from the merry-go-round of your life, take inventory of what’s happening around you, and make some important decisions and choices on how you choose to spend your time. Again, how you spend your time indicates where you will be in five years. 

    I do my Weekly Pilot Plan every Sunday afternoon. It is an extremely powerful exercise to access your inner resources and knowledge. It pulls you out of an overwhelmed state into one of empowerment. 

    People often spend time and money hiring a coach to help them to decipher next steps. I believe that an experienced coach with a proven track record and street cred can be enormously helpful. But I also know that we don’t use all of our inner resources to make intuitive and powerful decisions. Until you strengthen Self One, the Pilot, you will always be flying under the radar. This is your opportunity to step up to the plate, own your power, and become the pilot of your plane.

    Carve out a time on Sunday (or Monday morning) when you are alone. What you are about to do is what a tennis pro does before she hits the ball. She keeps her eye on the ball and knows strategically where she wants it to go. She’s not closing her eyes and hitting it, hoping for the best. You are no longer going to close your eyes and enter into your week putting out fires and reacting to the chaos around you. You are now strategically placing your time and energy where it counts. 

    When you make a date with yourself to plan out the week, it’s astounding how productive you can be and how much time, clarity, and results you gain. The biggest gift you’ll receive from being the “Pilot” of your time is that you can close your computer at the end of the day, feel satisfied that you have utilized your time with laser focus, and you can savor your life. 

    The Weekly Pilot Plan asks you to choose one game changing goal for the week and to announce it to your Accountability Posse. When your week is complete, always remember to give yourself a “check-in” with your Accountability Posse. Doing this keeps you in alignment with your goals and creates a powerful deadline for you. You are ten times more likely to achieve your goal when deadlines are involved.

    So: what's on YOUR Weekly action plan this week? If you haven't started, will you commit to creating one next week? I promise you will see a major difference in the way your week unfolds, and how you are able to keep track of your progress along the way.
