Proper Planning – How to do the right things, in the right order, in the right amount (FS325)

A business cannot start with at least some planning, right?

How important are the planning stages of your journey?

How do we ensure that we are planning enough, not too much and not too little?

Planning should be given due attention but should not take over all your time and detract from other important areas. If you can balance your planning appropriately and make good decisions in the beginning you can set off on the right foot without obsessing over it!

In this episode we are helping you to answer the questions, “Where am I going? What paths are available? Where should I start?” We do not want you to get lost in the questions that inevitably arise and will always do so, you need to be able to have purpose and direction when laying out your plans.

Today on the show we are joined by Joe Kerns, who is a business psychology, mental resilience expert and someone who is more than qualified in today’s topic. Joe loves helping motivated people see and seize the opportunities that can often slip through their fingers.

We also talk about doing the right things, in the right order and in the right amount, the specifics of planning and how a general, unfocused attitude to the task can set you way back. All that and much more on the show today!
