I work a lot with entrepreneurs to help them uncover their Purpose, clarify their Principles or Values and figure out how to communicate all of that to the right people so that they can all achieve their goals.
I love doing this clarifying work. Like, I love it a lot.
AND, sometimes people just can’t dig into that work. It took some time to figure out why this was the case. Now there could be lots of reasons why people aren’t ready for the work of clarifying their purpose and values and one of the biggest reasons is that they don’t have control over the stuff at the ground level.
They have signed up for all sorts of goals, projects and actions that they need to get underway and they don’t have a good way to handle all of that PLUS everything that comes onto their plate via their:
- social media
- snail mail
- and so on
If you are struggling with the big picture, I’m going to encourage you to do something rather counter intuitive: dig into the details.
Seriously. Roll up your sleeves and look at everything you aren’t getting done and implement systems to help you get all of that under control SO THAT you can free up your mind for bigger and better things.
