Quarterly Evaluations and Why I Love Them.

Quarterly Evaluations and Why I Love Them.

I'm a big fan of change. I love mixing it up, keeping myself on my toes and not forcing myself to be the same all of the time. It's the key to my personal satisfaction. However, there are a few pieces of my business model that truly keep this vehicle of a business moving forward in a positive direction. Things that help me to get clear on what I want and where I'm going. They are my life blood and they aren't going anywhere.

One of those items is my quarterly evaluations. 

I do this every, you guessed it... quarter. I also do this with my clients on a regular basis. It helps me to vision and dream about the future of my business in an intentional and manageable way. 

This week I decided that I couldn't go another week without sharing that process with you. I guess I could have kept it under wraps until you hired me and I walked  you through the process, but, well, I don't want to. 

Below, I will walk you through every step of this process and then at the very bottom you can click through and download a checklist for you to do this on your own! I recommend saving it to your desktop or in a folder to remind yourself that you want to touch in with it at the beginning of June!

Alignment then Action.

Alignment then Action.

Let me tell you a little story about a girl who grew up believing that one day she would do more than what was expected of her. She put all of her energy and focus on one day making a million dollars so she could buy her hard working mother a home and give her the gift of early retirement. She took the weight of her families problems onto her shoulders at a young age. Believing that it all relied on her ability to be different, to chart a new course for everyone. 

All of her energy went into being everything. 

Everything that was needed to be the perfect daughter, the perfect student, the perfect athlete, the perfect church goer, the perfect member of every club at school, the perfect employee at the local movie theater and the perfect friend. 

Until one day she woke up and just couldn't do it anymore.

On creating lasting change.

On creating lasting change.

I know what it feels like to gain clarity on an issue only to find that the change doesn't follow. Shouldn't I see change once I understand that the change needs to exist? The trouble is that we have built habits and ways of thinking that support our old ways.  

I have worked out a foolproof system for creating change in your life. If you follow these steps, you will have the tools you need to drastically alter the way you live. I'm going to spend the next few weeks breaking these down for you. But, first, I want to introduce you to the 5 step system itself! I'm not promising that you will make positive changes just by reading this. Apply it and I promise your being will be altered!
