In today’s session of business SUCCESS with Doug Barra, I want to talk to you about learning, because learning is directly related to your planning.
“What!?!”, you might be saying to yourself, “what are you talking about? Learning is related to my planning!?! I’m planning. I’m planning on my growth. I’m planning on my sales. I’m planning on what I’m going to do. How is learning related to that?”
Well, learning is related to that, because you want to also plan what is the learning that you need. The learning that you need to understand to be able to do the plan that you’re creating.
Because – let’s look at it this way – if you’re creating a plan that’s just a list of things that you’re going to do over the next 12 months, the next month, the next 90 days, whatever, then is that really a plan? Or, is that just a list of “To Do” items that you’re going to do?
See, I see planning as creating the things that we’re not even sure how we’re going to do. We’re not even sure where we need to go to get that done, but we do know what we need to learn.
We do know what we need to get better at.
We do know all of the things that we don’t know in order to get this plan done.
And that’s where the learning comes in.
So, make sure that when you’re starting your plan for 2018, one of the topics is ‘what am I going to learn,’ so that you can have the best 2018 yet.
Looking forward to seeing you and talking to you soon. Please leave me a comment. What is it that you need to learn in order to really have your 2018 be successful? And, if there’s anything I can do to help, please let me know.
