It’s just so true …
When you ask yourself better questions, you get better answers!
So here are seven strategic questions I regular ask myself (and my business coaching clients):
#1: What went really well this past month?
#2: Why did it go well?
This is the place to dig a little deeper and process any learnings.
#3: How can you do more of it?
eg Amplify your successes!
#4: What could have gone better?
See if you can find 3 areas for improvement.
#5: What will you do differently this next month?
What are you going to stop doing completely, outsource or get better at?
#6: What would make this coming month a total 10 month?
eg Enjoyment (gotta enjoy the ride!), 5 new clients, 2X the revenue, release a book, hold an event etc
#7: What could make “a 10 month” for you faster and easier?
What might shortcut your achievement curve?
Try this process for yourself. I think you might be surprised at the answers you come up with!
Because here’s the bottom line …
If you aren’t really clear on where you are headed (and what’s working for you and what’s not), then you’re most certainly not taking the shortest path from A to B, which means you are working harder than you need be!
