Have you put the ‘big rocks’ in yet?

With February here, we’re asking if you’ve really done the work of ensuring you are living and working On Your TERMS. Have you allocated all your holidays and key social engagements and celebrations into your diary yet? What about those non-negotiable deliveries that you always do- your workshops, talks, launches?

When coaching our speakers, authors and coaches in the Changemaker Central Membership, one of the first things we do in the year is ensure they have their plans laid out, so you can work everything else in AROUND the key commitments that make your life and work worth living.

It’s a great way to avoid being overwhelmed and feel like you are in charge of the balance between work and life. And of course it helps you identify where you can add all those creative projects you are always coming up with, so they have a chance to see the light of day in a way that is not going to feel pressured.

Tap into the energy of the year to help you plan even more.

As a little bonus and to aid that thinking, it may also be that you want to tap into the energy of the year that is with us. We’re just moving into the year of the WATER RABBIT according to Chinese Astrology. It’s a nice reminder for all your efforts as a speaker, author and coach. Essentially, it means that the energy of 2023 is focused on your purpose (what you are here to do) manifested in the connections and communication you make (who you do it for). If you are interested in learning more, check out this great summary by Nick Haines.

Whatever you do, make sure you align what you want to do with how you want your year to ‘be’ and secure that space and time you want for you. A plan goes a long way to making sure you’re enjoying your existence, day to day, and the special stuff.

If you want any support to do this, reach out for a call or join The Connection Hub to get access to over 200 resources to keep you growing your speaker, author, and coach business.
