Why do some dreams come true and some dreams remain a dream?
Planning. Plain and simple.
Craft Picks started as a dream. An excuse to drink good beer. Now I get paid to drink good beer. Why?
I developed and executed a plan.
I decided to get serious about Craft Picks in January 2018. I went to an Action Coach Growth Club Business Planning Workshop. Met and hung out with some cool people. I used the tools Action Coach provided to set some priorities and SMART goals. Walked away with:
- Energy, vision and focus for my business.
- Profit building strategies.
- A real time 90 day plan.
- Business contacts.
Well hell, rolling into 4th quarter, I hit most of the goals I set back in January. Three sheets of paper enabled me to make huge progress on a “dream”. I didn’t need accountability from another person. My plan was my accountability. Go figure.
I write this to share an idea.
Dreams are wonderful. Dreams are where some of the best ideas come from. Dreams will remain dreams if we do not plan and execute. If you have a dream, make a plan to make your dream a reality. Then execute.
