Plan B, C and D!

Hopefully you already have a Plan A in place! What to do to get where you want to go.

  • That could mean you know how many people you need to speak to for your business success.
  • That could mean you know how many days you need to visit your gym to hit the health goal you have in place
  • That could mean you know how many pages you need to read to finish the books you have stacked on your nightstand right now.

What happens when Plan A falls apart. And believe me, it will fall apart!

Over the past few months if you had travel plans that included Delta or Southwest you found yourself looking for Plan B, Plan C and maybe even Plan D as both of these large airlines had major computer issues grounding thousands of flights and leaving people stranded for days.

Did you have a plan for your health and your body fought back with a sprain or just a flu from the new exercise?

Did you have a plan for your new eating strategy and then ended up at an event with only fried food and sweets. Note: This sounds like a great event to be stuck at!

Did you have a plan for making calls to your potential and past clients while at the office and people kept knocking on your door to ask questions.

Our plans are only as good as our back-up plans.

Plan A B or CNext time you build Plan A, take a moment and look at all of the obstacles that could get in your way. Some of them might be so extreme you don’t really need a plan for them and some of them might be so common you already included the contingency in Plan A. There will be many things that will come to mind while you wear your black hat and review your original Plan A.

Don’t take days to build the back up plans, just put together a Plan B, Plan C and even a Plan D if needed and because you have them, you won’t need them!

Some tell us that we should have a Plan A and stick to it no matter what. While we want you to be committed to your plan of attack and not fall back to a Plan B or Plan C, remember what Mike Tyson said…”everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”

Be ready for your success with whichever plan you follow!

Business Workouts

What makes gyms like OrangeTheory Fitness, CrossFit and SoulCycle such a success? And how does that matter to you in your business?

The current success that is being seen in the fitness world is in the way these businesses have changed how people workout — and how they feel about it. Success leaves clues, so let’s have a look at them and how they can help you outside of the gym.

 

  1. Control the calendar

The first thing these programs do is set a schedule They tell you when the classes are offered and you jump through hoops to show up because they have something that you value.

Are you controlling your calendar or are you jumping through hoops to meet with clients when they want? Then you miss out on important family events, meals, and the always important lead creation time? Remember, as the professional, you have something the client will value so keep control of your own calendar. Do doctors, dentists, lawyers and other professionals jump as soon as someone calls? Why do you?

 

  1. Work in groups

The next factor in the a success of these fitness programs is group classes. These give you the opportunity to have others watch what you do and learn from them in return. This lets you copy a gym-mate if you didn’t understand the coach. This lets you compete with someone and up your game. This lets you share challenges and wins together.

Many people head into work and then lock themselves in their private office without any group accountability. Sit in the open. Bring others to sit with you. This will then allow you to listen to each other, compete with each other and share challenges and wins with each other. Even better, bring a group of people and the energy that comes with everyone “working out” together!

 

  1. Be accountable

One of the most powerful tools to lead someone towards success is accountability, and that is something that these programs offer. When you workout alone, do you run as fast as you can while on the treadmill or do you just jog? Do you lift weights to push yourself or just impress yourself? Having others doing the same thing you are shows you that baseline to strive for or to break through.

Having a group to generate new business with not only teaches you better how to do it, it makes sure that succeed and don’t settle!

 

  1. Mix it up

There are challenges and changes each and every day you attend one of these workouts. Nobody wants to do the same exact thing day after day after day after day. We look for distractions, changes and excitement around us all the time. These successful gyms bring that to you with a different workout each day (even if elements are the same) and opportunities to show yourself how far you have progressed.

Most people don’t do what they know they should do because they are looking for distraction and change. Prepare for it instead, and move your lead generation location. Move your lead generation time. Move your lead generation target and call your sphere of influence today, your family tomorrow and past clients on the third day. The elements stay the same with changes to keep the challenge fun.

Maybe you aren’t ready to franchise yourself like these highly successful gyms, yet you can get more than just a good workout from them. If you pay attention, you can learn lessons of success and end up a lot less sweaty!
